@Smileyrius,
True to the extent that most stay with the religion of their parents.

No. The question I answered was, "So, what of the things I mentioned would you exclude in your autonomy?"

@InfraBlue,
Have I confused the question? For it seems to me that you are saying murder and rape are OK with you.

@neologist,
Yes, you have. They're not OK with me. The punitive laws with which mankind deal with them are OK with me.

How would you handle such offences?

I'd handle them through some of the justice systems developed by mankind.

So, going back a few pages, How would the punitive laws and justice systems you espouse be superior to the sentiment you expressed here?

@neologist,
It's based on the here and now and not some idealized, wishful pining.

@InfraBlue,
Thinking about the ideal is not necessarily a waste of time.

For the here and now, we continue to live with it. But the "wishful pining" you refer to is no unreachable ideal; it is the purpose for which mankind was created.

@neologist,
I'm surprised you had to ask. All one needs to do is type on any search engine, <homo sapien evolution>.

@cicerone imposter,
No. I wanted to see if you could explain in your own words.
I've seen the multi syllable bloviations.

@neologist,
Mankind has been filling the earth and subduing it, ruling over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground for dozens of millennia.

Your mythology was written much, much later after the fact and states the obvious.

Just reporting the text. Not expecting y0u to suddenly believe. But note that if they had not sinned, they would still be here and we would have none of the ills discussed in our last few posts.

The ills are a part of life. Deal with it.

I don't buy that mythology either.

Sin was a foregone conclusion for the perpetuation of the species. Age and disease will control human population on this planet.
