How very Christian of you, Robert. How presumptuous, also, considering that Christians make up only a fraction of the world's population.
You believe that people are inherently flawed, while I believe the opposite-- that we are perfect beings of light.
Your flawed human is a brother, while my flawed human is genetic debris.
Being Christian, mind you, you'll probably be inclined to argue the point.
Or it could be that I'm just feeling especially contrary tonight...

I'm kind of struglling to prove it, and can only come up with a few crappy points about children getting vaccinated, criminals pleading their innocence, and a load of other dodgy stuff. HELP ME PROVE IT PLEEEEAAAAAAAASE!!!

: Daev & UGANDAN,
: Lies, if well-told, believeable, unquestioned, have a way of installing themselves so well that the truth may never be known. In point of fact, the "lies" then take on a repectable aura, concealing the truth forever, justifying the liar even to the extent that he/she can no longer recognize the truth of the original lie. If lies are saved as a result of a well-told timely lie, what harm has been done? What values are displaced by believing that ALL lives are worth saving? Judge not that ye be judged yourself. He who is without sin, cast the first stone. We all fall short in the eyes of God.
