The Seven Deadly Sins: Part 3

Greed is, like lust and gluttony, a sin of excess. However, greed (as seen by the church) is applied to the acquisition of wealth in particular.

Guilty as charged. I must confess, I am not very good at this one. . .

The Seven Deadly Sins: Part 2

Gluttony: Derived from the Latin gluttire, meaning to gulp down or swallow.

Guilty as charged.

In my defense, ever seen an animal eat. No reservations.

gluttony is the over-indulgence and over consumption of anything to the point of waste.

No matter how much one eats, there is going to be waste. . .

The Seven Deadly Sins: Part 1


Guilty as charged.

However, in my defense, I was hard wired this way. To therefore declare me unfit for heaven, or worse, fit for hell, is foolhardy.

Dante's criterion for lust was "excessive love of others," which therefore rendered love and devotion to God as secondary.

Is my excessive love for others my fault or God's?

Don't throw the baby out with the fücking bath water!

For instance, "Beware of mother-fücking wolves in sheeps clothing" should be universal, its not dogmatic. (I almost wrote godmatic just then. Ü)

Point being, nuggets of worthwhile info can be found within all the fücking bullshit. Just do as Jefferson did or tried to do, separate the gold from the fücking dross.

An Atheist Apologetics

There is no evidence of a Personal God. Q.E.D.

Some might say, " That's not enough!" Very well.

For simplicities sake, let's only look at the big three Personal God Believers: The Abraham's Faiths. Abraham. . .allegedly. . .was going to stab his son because "The Creator" told him to. . . KILL his son. If "The Creator" ordered me to kill my son, I would say "Kill him yourself". . .Or something. Anything except "OK, right away!". I might start by saying "Yeah, right!". Now, why would I say those things?

Abraham begets Moses.

Moses "gave" us the Ten Commandments. One of those Commandments was Thou Shall NOT kill. Now, Abraham must of known this, for he was a descendant of Adam. Adam, as I assume we all know, ate the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Ergo, Abraham had that knowledge. And Moses had that knowledge. Everybody has that knowledge. If not, only Adam knows. If we do not possess such knowledge, then all talk of good and evil must cease.

Abraham begets Jesus.

Jesus declared (all be it not new) The Golden Rule. "Do unto others as you would have done to you, for this is the law. . ." Evil, therefore, is that which one does to another that one would not want done to themselves. In the case before us, killing another. To wit, Abraham was going to break the law because "The Creator" told him to break the law. Conclusion: God told Adam to kill, then after the fact, God commanded us not to kill. . .consistency is MIA.

Abraham begets Mohammad.

What is there left to say? All I can offer is my theory on why Mohammad "materialized". He got tired of waiting. . .for Jesus that is.

Let's look at it rationally. God presents us with a law abiding universe. If God were to intervene to subvert these laws, then God would in fact be a prankster, especially if these subversions were only done in a seemingly haphazard fashion. Q.E.D.

The Golden Rule Redo

Do not do unto others anything against their will, unless they are trying to pick your pocket or break your leg.
