    I'm going to play devil's advocate here because, well, i've got a few minutes to kill before i go to work. ............

    Hi Frank, I hope all goes well.

    But since I don't see you at the gym anymore I will have to ask here. All these long thread starters and posts like this one that we have seen lately, are they the equivalent of an off-Broadway try out of your book?

    I believe if you help someone it should be because you want to, no hidden message, no religion attached. True help comes from the heart. I have seen many come and do wonderful things for the people here and then I have seen a few with their own agenda. I hear what Frank12 is saying about believing in miracles, my in-laws are a great example. I just figured they needed something to believe in. Again my own thoughts.

    Here's a fascinating, thought-provoking article in today's New York Times regarding religion: Does It Matter Whether God Exists? - NYTimes.com

    This guy is all over the place and presents his tentativeness as insight. I can't believe he is teaching philosophy at Notre Dame.

    Funny, that's how I interpreted the article.

    I always wonder why some people think only Christian organisations can do good in this world? Where is the logic in this?

    What about "Doctors without Frontiers", totally non-religious, and doing fantastic work all over the world? Just an example, as there are plenty of others...

    There are plenty of Christian people, or people of other religions, who do wonderfull work, and you can only applaud them...

    There are plenty of non-religious, and religious organizations who claim they do wonderfull work, whilst they are filling their own very deep pockets... They are just profit-making businesses exploiting the unsuspecting masses who donate...

    I will start with a huge organisation I know in Belgium. They rake in tens of millions of dollars each year, of which 5 cents on the dollar reaches the poor.... The salaries of the board are humungous... They are totally not connected to any religion...

    The same with religious organizations. How would you call a Christian School who exploits its Christian teachers, frauds the parents of the kids attending, and deliver a diploma you cannot even wipe your ass with? Believe me, when I say some teachers (young Christian adults with high ideals) are hugely disappointed when they discover the truth...

    I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me why humans are so worried about right and wrong. Why when no other animals care?

    BTW, this should really go in the other thread.

    How do you know no other animals are conscious of right and wrong.

    Hey, hey, hey. You fail to mention the thousands upon thousands of dollars DR1ers donated to build the dental clinic in Puerto Plata. I guess Alberto is a little busy for an update at the present time.
