    And the best thing is every time another early twenty-something picks up their first copy of Atlas Shrugged you can just block them on Facebook until they finally shut up, and unlike Scientology that really only takes about a year.

    Probably. He reminds me of another poster who claimed that the fall of the Roman Empire was due to rising secularism. He was promptly beaten by a mob of angry historians.

    Actually, I wonder if that was Matt Foley as well.

    Edit: no, that was Amigo. Still, it was pretty funny.

    See, it's about Germania during the Roman period and not about law in the history of civilization, and the words theft, murder, rape, and Christ or Christian are curiously absent in a source that's supposed to convince me that before Christians came along theft, rape and murder were legal and common. So you'll pardon me if I have my doubts.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I cannot improve upon that wisdom. But here is an attempt.

    A faux political philosophy based on personal selfishness and the justification for its meaner impulses is not a good thing when you live in a society with other people. Cooperation and mutual interest is necessary for civilization to flourish . Rand is the antithesis of such concepts.

    It never is. Have been doing it since day one here.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
