    I'm actually liking where this thread is going. Still civil and in spite of a little tension, not overbearing.

    No. Selling to junkies is exploitation. For that matter, using a woman for prostitution because she's a junkie is also exploitation.

    When one denies God, then morality is open to interpretation based on feelings, opinions and such. How can a person who denies God claim specific rights; inalienable rights....and where do they come from? I often hear that gun ownership is a God given right; even from those who deny God.
    I like to express it as a "natural right." The result is essentially the same and it has a greater appeal to any godless liberals.

    More than likely..... My thought is always to try to understand others. That process ends when someone withdraws. And that's okay too. I grew up in a cult religion and I have a pretty good grasp of how that goes from an "inside" perspective. Nevertheless, there is always more understanding and learning to be had.

You made your point before and no one has challenged your right to your belief so stop ridiculing the belief of others.

    Re-read the thread, my first reply never mentioned my faith because I knew some would take it the wrong way and start a little tantrum......I was right.
    I didn't read his response as him taking it personally. Maybe I'll go back and read it again, just for clarity.

    My beliefs are only slightly different than yours. As an atheist, I merely believe in one less god/religion than you do!

    Sorry, couldn't resist!

    That said, though, the decision to not believe in god/religion is not too different than deciding to believe.

    This is the thing that has always bothered me. many are similar and actually use the same god with just some different version, some slight and some extreme. Most of those probably all morphed from one and changed numerous times over the centuries. But what about ones like they had in Egypt, the greeks and romans where they had numerous gods? You have old religions no longer practiced and newer ones the Scientology that i believe worship aliens(space, not illegal). there are over 4000 different religions and pretty much all my life i wondered which is right or are any of them right? We'll probably never know but maybe if we're lucky we find out later on.

    And every religion seems to say "Believe in Me" or else. And not to start a firestorm, but why did God give that desert to the Jews and be damned everyone else? Doesn't make any sense. I know there is something going on, I've seen it in my life, many times, but damned if I know what it is. If there is a God, it should be the God of all people, not just a certain people. Jesus, Muhammed, Krishna, are probably all the same, but we people gotta screw everything up, division is our game. I don't know what "it" is, but it's quite powerful and amazing. God or alien? God is an alien?

    Because organized religion is not about religion, it is about power and control. Remember, way back when, the religious leaders were the only educated ones, many times more educated than the royalty; they were the original Deep State.......

    I believe ALL religion is about power and control.

    I also believe all religion is man-made.

    I am of the opinion that if prostitution was legal there would be a significant drop in the divorce rate.
