Response to TreasonousBastard (Reply #48)

49. Sure I do

And I have no problem pointing out exactly what it is, other than doing so would simply provide you with another opportunity to change the subject (which clearly you are desperate to do). If you want me to name a system of ethics that is better than religion, I can name pretty much anything. Anarchy would be one. I'm certainly no anarchist, but it seems preferable to cutting off people's hands for theft or stoning women to death for adultery. The US legal system would be another, which is firmly based on reason despite historical revisionists failed attempts to claim otherwise and religious fanatics' attempts to burn down the wall of separation between church and state. I have no interest in discussing either of those completely separate subjects with you, so you'll have to find a new playmate if you want to go into that.

Feel free to claim victory if it makes you feel better. I have no allusions that anyone who subscribes to a system void of reason is going to be reasonable. My only interest was challenging your assertions that religion based ethics are worth anything more than a bucket of warm spit. I'm quite convinced I have done so effectively with the added benefit of revealing you as nothing more than a name caller who runs away from their own statements rather than even attempting to support them. As such I have no more interest in continuing this discussion and giving you more opportunities to act out your childishness. I gave you the opportunity to apologize for it and you showed your true colors again by simply ignoring your own bad behavior. It doesn't bother me in the least. By the time I hit Post you'll be no more of a concern to me than my last beer fart. Feel free to have the last word as I'm sure you'll be unable to resist. Such things have no importance to me.

Cheers!
