Re: Do you believe in the concept of wrong and right?
Crimso Trickster, tell me, isn't it true that the majority has been wrong various times in history? No to mention, majority is relative. Family, City, Country, World? We all affect each other, but what one majority says is right is different from another. And what gives any man the right to say his is better. We're all men, none is greater than another.

Yestderday, I went to the funeral of oen of my friends moms. He's in high-school, and had a wonderful mom, one who was very dear and kind to me as well. She was loved by so many, including myself. But guess what? NO matter what good she did, she's dead. It matters not. She is gone. ANythign she did here on earth matters not, if there is no eternity, for now she no longer exists. She is gone. And eventually, so will be everyone she helped. Rich, poor, weak, strong, smart, dumb, successful, wasteful, we all die. And when that happens, everything before does not matter, because, if there is no eternity, we are gone. All is vanity.
Seeing how we have so little time, and once we're dead, it supposedly matters not, then tell me why I should use that to help others, and not me. Moral obligation, I suppose? Now, why do we have moral obligation? What purpose is it? Tell me, please, who is that lawgiver? Why does the majority, whatever it is, matter? The majority's mind changes, and is subjective to what we reference. Even so the majority will die to. Why should we help one another, and not ourselves. SO what about ruin? Why do we even care about what happens, as long as we stay on top? If it's just us, then there is only one's opinion and wants vs anothers', survival of the fittest.
The fact is this. None of us would go through with that. Now why? Why is it? Because we have a heart. No man would say it's okay to kidnap a helpless child, because he wants a slave. But this life is temporal, we will all die. If so is the case, then why not attempt to enjoy it? Why live under the submition of those who are equal to myself? For their benefit?
But, if there is a God, then we have reason, cause, hope, fear, purpose, accountability, an eternity, and much more. It's because of this that Doreen's life mattered. It's because I know now she is in heaven, as are all those who are Christians unto deathhhhhh...... okay I'm gong off topic, sorry. I'm not saying I believe in the things previously said, I'm saying however that they make sense if there is no God.
