The Pope meets the Serpent



"Gutentag Herr Snake"
"Hisssssssssssssss-hello Benediiiiiiiiiiiict"

Everyone knows that the reason why we all deserve to go to hell is because a woman believed what a talking snake told her.

No Garrett, not quite. The reason we all deserve to go to hell is because individually, each one of us has rebelled against God and his commandments for us. Thereby, we have earned due punishment for ourselves. I wish I could just point to Adam and Eve and say, "see, it's not my fault", but it is.
However, that is quite the interesting photo. Is the snake on the left or the right? (jk)

What have you done in life to deserve such a negative view of yourself, my good and decent friend? You actually believe that you are destined to be burned forever? Why? Because you believe such nonsenecial bedtime stories?

What evidence do you have that there is a heaven and a hell? Other than a belief in a religion? Why? I don't get it...........

Peace!!!!

You speak of his comandments?

Is it OK to STEAL a persons car keys if he is drunk and could perhaps kill somebody?

Is it OK to LIE when you are Miep Gies and the Nazis ask you, is Anne Frank here in this house?


Perhaps in the real world good and decent people are bound by "intent to minimize harm" and not ancient superstitions and primitive dogma.

Hey Garrett,

You said
Is it OK to STEAL a persons car keys if he is drunk and could perhaps kill somebody?

Yes, that is not stealing, there is no gain being had by the one "stealing" the keys. You fully intend to give them back. There is no loss to the person loving his keys for a time. He is still going to get home, by cab or a friend, which is what he is planning on trying anyway. So this could not be classified as stealing.


Is it OK to LIE when you are Miep Gies and the Nazis ask you, is Anne Frank here in this house?

No, I have never found a reason it is ok to lie. No matter how you justify it with man made logic. We are to be honest in all aspects of our lives, in business, with government, insurance companies, the IRS, even Santa Claus and our kids. Come join us some December for a Santa Claus free Christmas, it enhances the Holiday much, even with my four kids ages 4 month - 8 yrs old.
