If perchance I have offended, think but this, and all is mended, that you have but slumbered here, while a vision did appear. A Midsummer Night's Dream

Well...as long as the sheep are consenting who am I to judge?

As to the video I don't necessarily think there will be a shortfall of people helping others but the video does raise a few good points. I thought it was worth sharing anyway.

The only problem I forsee is that an eighteen year old sheep is a pretty old sheep....

Thanks, Chris. That is very interesting.
Religion does have it's place. We are all looking for beauty and understanding and yes, a consolation when you wake up at three in the morning with the bitter after thought of a frightening notion, what is it all about? When this old body of ours starts to wear a bit thin the rigorous application of reason doesn't always do the job.
What comes after religion? To answer that is outside my philosophical pay grade.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?Then he is not omnipotent.Is he able, but not willing?Then he is malevolent.Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? (Epicurus circa:300 BC)
