|again I reiterate, I'm not lucky and you don't know the first thing about me or where I've been. The hard truth is no matter where you are you're living with the choices that others have made both past and present. The only way to eliminate this evil, as you call it, is to eliminate free will. Are you willing to accept that? And no matter how many pictures you throw up there Assassinator, starvation is not evil, it's a fact of life. I don't know understand how you can embrace this ideal of the whole world at peace with everyone prosperous and happy and at the same time view faith in God as untenable. I could easily say that your fantasy is farther removed from reality than mine is.|
oh, and back on the original topic:
Climate Panel hotseat
You know what, you're an evil sod skep, you really are.
Unless you have escaped this kid of crippling poverty or overcome some equal (or somehow worse, although I can't see how it could be worse) issue, not only do I not know anything about you, but I don't CARE. Know why? Because you're a selfish douchebag who thinks that just because everyoe has problems on some level, he isn't lucky. You know what? I've almost certainly (I've never goe to get myself checked out to confirm because I'm terrified that it might turn out positive) got depression. I've also got no money right now, and I've got some other mental issues (inability to accept praise, anger issues, some rather minor social issues, and a rather severe case of paranoia. My life, for the most part is fine, but sometimes these things come and bite me in the arse and when they do you can bet I think my life sucks. Heck, even when I'm happy I bemoan life to the point where my friends get annoyed by me now, but I still think I'm lucky. Why? Because I'm NOT starving, disease ridden and destitute. I have friends who care for me, hot and cold running water, a house and clothing, real food (although recently I've been down to just rice with spices to flavour it, which kinda sucks) and actual prospects, including a current position on a uni course.
I AM lucky, because I'm not in Sudan right now, being massacred. I'm lucky because I DON'T live in rural India, starving and unlikely to ever escape. I'm lucky because I DON'T live in constant fear of being raped or murdered by hired thugs employed by my own government.
But you? You are't lucky, o no. You CAN'T be lucky. People like you, who take their life for granted even when SHOWN how they are lucky, make me sick. I don't know you, you could be the greatest man who ever lived, and you know what? I still think you're vile.
God is ridiculous because there is no need to believe in him, but people do. My "fantasy" as you lovingly call it may not be real now, and it may not be attainable, but at least it gives me something to work for that MIGHT work out. Hell, even if life is still unfair, which I have no doubt it will be, I might add, I could still make things a bit better. Trying to do somethig to help doesn't mean we think we're going to wave a wand and sort out all the worlds problems, heck, it does't even mean we think they will ever be solved, but it means we are willing to try, and through this effort we might make some difference.
I consider living my life as if I can help to be far greater than YOU my twisted friend. You who thinks you are the universe, and who won't hear about how lucky he is from us plebs because we don't know how you SUFFERED. Christ man, you're the worst kind of pond scum.
I'm not the fastest or the baddest or the fatest.
You NEVER seem to address the fact that the grand majority of people supporting Darwinism in these on line forums and blogs are atheists. That doesn't seem to bother you guys in the least. - FtK
