Zach,

I read your little dialogue. You seem to confuse the soul with the mind. Your argument could have run that the soul resides in the blood (a fairly common belief among ancient peoples). The soul cannot be injured. Your putzes could have easily have said that the soul had fled the body, not been injured. To automatically assume that there is nothing else is as fundamental of an error as the presupposition of evangelical Christianity that they've got the monopoly on God.

Also, in your pledge of allegiance, you pledge to yourself and to humanism. Which is it? Yourself or your fellow man/woman/other?

I have charged you with hedonism before, but you always claim that is a valid path of enlightenment. That may very well be so, but it doesn't appear that you indulge yourself for that purpose. You only seem to have little willpower.

I do agree with your proposition that we cannot accept what others tell us as truth. But to claim that there is nothing after death makes life pointless. A vain rushing from here to there, for there will be nothing tomorrow. I know that that is the core of your philosophy, but why should we be kind to our fellow humans? There is nothing there to call us to something higher. You can say that they have a fundamental right to happiness and life. Why? If we have conscienceness(sp.) then where did it come from? What is the origen of the pre-big-bang protomatter? Your philosophy leaves much unanswered, but maybe that's the way you like it. No hard questions. No hard answers. Just a gentle apathy toward everything.
