Quite honestly, it's rather ridiculous that one believes that a stork can deliver a fully matured philosopher who knows immediately that cutting another cent off the hourly rate of a poor rice planter in Cambodia to provide another dividend to a rich fat speculator in New York and earn the stockbroker another upgrade on his BMW is wrong!

isn't it?

Welcome to the forum.

And I thought I was the only one here who believed in the stork theory of reproduction.

Hurrah!

Interesting, it seems you can't read or respond to posts correctly without ruining the quote tags, is that correct?

Nice straw man you've built there, but the post you're referring to said "basic moral principles," not "ethical stock trading" or "economic ethics".

I think you've missed the point there "Ramp"...there's nothing more morally basic than taking a penny from a poor man to make a rich man richer....

Dude.
Not all the word-salad in the world can prove your God. No matter how elaborate or science-y, or what vocabulary you dress it all up with............ just no.

You have NO proof.

Zero.

IF you did - you'd have offered it by now and this thread would have been one fucking page long.



done.
that's gone with a "D".







good luck with that.


oh and........................ Shut Up already.
LOLLaughat

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.
