    Thanks for the clarification... and well said!

    Please stop boring me with your complex question fallacies. The point of my statement was that your assumption that christianity somehow was "instrumental" in criminalizing rape, murder or otherwise is ridiculous. Rape, murder and theft have been common both before AND after the rise of christianity. They were also deemed illegal by different societies who didn't live around the Sinai long before some Jewish guy with a martyr complex decided to come along and preach flower power. Laws against rape, murder etc serve a pretty practical purpose. Don't rape me, I won't kill you. That they are harsh is simply a characteristic of ancient societies.

    However, I do find it funny how ignorant you are about basic social history. That you depend on little slogans like "godhater" as if there was a god to hate in the first place just puts icing on the cake. In case you don't understand what I meant, it's simple: I can't hate something which doesn't exist.

With the present distracting debate, we still disrespect and under-appreciate creative talent, except as either Cash Cows of the corporations or slaves of the public. I believe in John Galt's supremacy as an inventor, but not his subservience to his predatory bosses.

    Very interesting post. I wouldn't go as far as calling it a priesthood, but there are certainly cultish qualities about Randian objectivism. However, I'm open to convincing. Who would you consider are other members of this priesthood?

    Those who invented the term "gifted," which implies that the talented owe something back. Those who create a false virtue of "science for science's sake" so that inventors should be satisfied with creativity and not demand their full share of the profits. "The glory of science" reminds me of the sport team owners who expected the players to play "for the love of the game," and paid them 2% of what they make now after they unionized and demanded the full value of the revenue they produced. In general, a priesthood claims for its idols what is produced by others or provided by mindless Nature and chance. With this myth established through mind control, the priesthood anoints new parasitic idols at its cathedral on Wall Street.

    Other priests are those who deny the validity of IQ tests. Those are Leftists, who contribute to Right Wing freeloading by taking away pride and the demand for a full reward from creative people. Also, the priesthood of Global Warming and Nature worship, who think inventors are destroyers, creating guilt and shame among them and implying that the species was better off and more in its natural place before homo sapiens started evolving from the dumb savages who ruled the Stone Age.
    On the outside, trickling down on the insiders.

    Hey, richboys! Imagine the boot of democracy stomping on your faces, forever.

    Christianity is instrumental in criminalizing rape, murder or otherwise.

    Rape, murder and theft have been common both before AND after the rise of christianity.
    Wrong. Rape, murder and theft was far more common before Christianization of any culture. Look it up

    They were also deemed illegal by different societies who didn't live around the Sinai long before some Jewish guy with a martyr complex decided to come along and preach flower power.
    A) Here we go, it's now some "Jewish guy". See how the Stormfronters hate Christianity so much, they just can't de-link Christianity from the Jews so instead they de-link from Christianity.

    B) Jesus didn't preach flower power.

    Laws against rape, murder etc serve a pretty practical purpose. Don't rape me, I won't kill you. That they are harsh is simply a characteristic of ancient societies.
    Unless you're part of the aristocracy and you killed, raped, stole from a lower caste, than it's perfectly legal; or the penalty is pennies on the dollar. Or if you're a lower caste and killed, raped, stole from a lower caste in which the law was mostly ambivalent.

    See if you actually read this stuff you'd realize that it mostly dealt with protecting the upper castes of ancient society. Yeaaaah.

    However, I do find it funny how ignorant you are about basic social history. That you depend on little slogans like "godhater" as if there was a god to hate in the first place just puts icing on the cake. In case you don't understand what I meant, it's simple: I can't hate something which doesn't exist.
    Stormfronters are more Jewishhaters than Godhaters, yeah.

    Why are shoot to kill orders given during natural disasters when looting is rampant? Because lawlessness is rampant.
