Yeah, but he is posting truth and you are not.

So why can you not step up and tell everyone how you can possibly know what jesus said or thought.

Simply parroting like a child what I say doesn't help your case at all.

So, as you've done a thousand times, when asked for evidence of your lies you simply lie again.

What did your Jesus character say about "wicked things"?

Frankly, I don't blame you for giving up entirely on trying to justify your weird religion based thesis.

What is your opinion on all of the hundreds of links I've posted of the religious abusing children?

Your weird religion is responsible for the injustice system and the system of money that you love.

Yes, religions are responsible for all of the evil in the world. All religions should be abolished. Won't you join me in seeing that all religion is abolished? Especially your weird one?

Ya but this is your religion with kings and dictators who put in place the injustice system and the system of money that you love, abolishing the religion is to abolish a system that you agree with and a part of yourself.

How does lying help your case? Does your religion advocate hypocrisy or is that a "wicked thing"?

This is illogical to say that you love the system of justice ( injustice ) and money and talk against churches because they brought these systems. It makes sense if you are an hypocrite.

Moreso for you to lie about what I have or haven't said. Why do you religiously do that?

Well, you've been hypocritical so it must make sense to you then. When are you going to speak against those religious who abuse children?

Don't you agree that all religion, including your own weird one, should be abolished since they turn their sycophants' brains to pudding?

And thus does the great deceiver reveal himself. Why are you doing satan's work for him, Gaetan? What are you gaining from the transaction?

See how easy that is? I can argue everything you propose to make you appear as a servant of satan. Seeking to undermine everything we as a species have achieved.

Your problem is that your god does not exist and neither does your satan. Nor your jesus PBUH, Namaste, whatever.

Why would you bother fighting against pollution? Is not your jesus coming soon to fix it all up? Did not your wholey babble give us dominion over the earth? Was that wrong somehow?

The problem with pollution is that richest 1% has all the advantages of pollution while the 99% all the disadvantages. Who elect the politiciens making laws? The money of richest. Then if you want to eliminate the pollution you have to abolish money.

If you ask the opinion of people about abolish money they tell you that maybe people won't work if everything is free, but if you ask a specific person if he, she, will continue to work free of charge if in return everything is free, they say yes.

Every specific person here has said they would not.

If everything is truly free, work is not required. As you have stated, there is no work requirement.

Do you participate in the "advantages of pollution" since you use money and won't share your wealth with the starving children in Africa?

You realize that you are probably part of that 1% globally.

So if it's not too much of an inconvenience, could you stop with your pollution? That would be great.

It is well proven what people say would do is very different from what they would really do if put in that situation. Ask anybody involved in marketing ;-).

Sure, I would do a lap around the park picking up trash. But would I do what I do now? Not likely. Since I'll be getting more for 15 minutes of "work" than I get for 40, or 80, or even 800 hours of work I do now.

But I'd probably become a warlord, since society would be in absolute freefall. Putting in a full 40 hour week of warlording.

I'm still willing to put in 35-40 hours a week of test driving supercars and yachts and taking pictures of bikini models.

Fortunately, I'll be able to rest up from my grueling schedule by relaxing in my mansions.

Come to think of it, I do need to drive my Maserati a bit more. If you don't drive it enough, the battery will discharge and won't recharge. So either I need to keep it on a trickle charger, or put some miles on it.

As absurd as your work is, and mine for that matter, I think we both agree that it's not going to be rainbows and kittens. People will die. In numbers that are just hard to conceive. Thanos would be jealous.

Wouldn't expect anything else. The inability to change your mind that is.


What makes you think that Sanders, a millionaire, would do anything to subvert his own position of power? He has worked his entire career to amass that power on purpose after all. His words and actions are at odds. When that happens, it's best to trust actions. He won't change a damn thing.
