That's not at all how the bible defines sin

RE: Religion and choice
How does sin apply to those God didn't give a conscience (psychopaths)?

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

His point was they don't know that. A point which you clearly missed..... Does this mean they can do anything and its not a sin cause they don't know its wrong?

Along with insanity breath of vision is the requirement of the prophet. Seeing the truth so widely represented one realizes the best option is to find my truth.

A truth. Subject it to the skeptical inquiry of my peers today. Expose it to the cynical eye of the world tomorrow. And when you see the sun that rises between love and entropy you too may witness the LC.

One day I'll get tired of posting Campbell quotes here. But that day is not today. Smile

"Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble."

Yeah Campbell is pretty good for the most part. A little too woo-ish for my taste, but it's relatively intelligent woo and even somewhat reality-based. The human mind works in symbols, and so likes symbolism and metaphor. However it seems to not be very discerning about whether the symbols you work with are understood to BE symbolic ONLY or something more. Fundamentalism is obsessed with obtaining certitude that is not really obtanium, and it does this by being hyper-literal. Literal six days of creation, literal fall, literal flood, and so forth.
