It is amazing the depth of nonsense, rot and trash in this thread. This is an indication of how utterly worthless religion is when it comes to understanding even the most minimal of things.
There is a basic reason why Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine. He and his cronies have stolen everything they can steal. It is similar to the Argentine strongman Gaultier, who with his cronies had looted the Argentine economy to the bone. So to distract public attention away from their crimes Gaultier decided that taking the Falklands from Britain was a great idea. A victory of that sort would buoy up his standing and ..., yeah it did not work. Putin's invasion of Ukraine was meant to do just the same, and the outcome does not look too different. The fall of the Soviet Union did not displace people in charge. All they did was to tear up their communist party cards, and the commissars of various industries declared themselves capitalists and owners. They became the oligarchs of Russia and these gangsters have been plundering Russia ever since. The Russian economy has barely muddled along for the last 3 decades. Putin is probably the second most wealthy man in the world. Please folks, knock off the religious rubbish. I see absolutely no reason to think there exist any form of disembodied conscious agent. This is whether it is YHVH, Jesus, Allah, Vishnu, or ..., including angels, demons, demiurges, spirits or immortal souls that exists in some nonphysical form. This is not about being pagan as Ben has it; no I do not believe in that crap either, LC -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
