I would say 'calm down' again, but it's obvious that there's no point.

I suppose that's a valid, if slightly selfish (come on, you have to admit that, although I'm not complaining), view.

So lets say that one psychopath went round and killed everybody in a remote village (he lived there) which is detatched from the rest of the world before killing himself, all you'd say it that no-one's there so no-one cares? Well, I suppose that you actually have a point there, but wouldn't it have been nicer if they could have all lived? Well, actually, I suppose that's debatable.

Never said we did. We certainly have no obligation. Helping it is merely something one can do when they feel like doing something good.

Everything can be attacked and so I could now attack you, but I won't. Regardless, I merely wanted us to debate without bashing what others say, nothing else.

Doesn't it seem weird that a Christian would want to follow a book when they don't take half of it seriously?

I know that. All I said was that we have not left a good mark on the environment. But this isn't even related to religion, and so I don't even know why we're discussing it here. I mean seriously (I'm not speaking to you or anyone in particular, please note), can we drop this 'sub topic' now?

We kill people who kill people to show others that killing is wrong.
