Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on August 18, 2014, 08:15:14 AMThey manufacture a non-tangible item for sale and have built into our society a requirement for you to buy it. Original sin is the only way to demand your purchase of their product. You can be 100% pure and totally without sin? Oh, no you can't, you got it when you were born, buddy!
Quote from: SGOS on August 18, 2014, 06:05:11 AMBut I don't see anything wrong with junking faith. You either believe something or you don't. Faith is useless. It means nothing, and it has no foundation in the reality of experiences we use to decide whether trust is warranted or not.
Quote from: Savior2006 on August 20, 2014, 06:23:31 PMSome people do find it useful. At least, they say they do, and I believe them. The religious always say that "everything is permitted" if there's no God, but that's only in their minds. I say let the rabid dog keep his own leash in that case.
