It depends on the Belief System.  Some cannot escape from their Belief System in anything they do.  Others have a more rational response to the challenges of life in their society, and can respond appropriately to the mores of the larger society.

Apropos nothing....   When I first started posting on this board (or, strictly, on the board which evolved into this one; 10 years ago I'd guess) the moderator was a Maltese.  Can anyone remember what nom de plume he used?


Thanks in anticipation.

I'm afraid it doesn't (jog the brain cells, that is).  But at my time of life, they really need a bit more than a mere jog.


So you've been coping with us for 8 years or so have you? 10 out of 10 for longsuffering, then.  And thanks, too.


But if any long-time posters have a better memory than mine, I'd still be grateful for a reminder.

This might help.  Secular Philosophies Archive  Indexing is screwed up and many of the links will need a www. added before beliefnet to work.  Have fun.
