If you could rid the world...

If you could rid the world...
I saw a right-wing idiot christian post a FB meme, "if you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"

Her response was "sin."

So we have an idiot brain wanting to remove a fictitious thing from a real world. This is why there's no progress in the world.

Nuclear weapons, all of them. But who am I kidding, as soon as people would realize they were gone, they'd just make more.

so you don't want to live in a world without:
murder
sex trafficking 
stealing
lies
among dozens upon dozens of other listed sins?

or do you not understand a sin is not a thing, but rather a category of bad/evil behavior. and if you are not in a position to identify it as such, then it simply shows the 'limits' of your cognitive ability. (meaning if you want to pretend or truly believe sin is not a category of forbidden or evil behavior much like the word crime. then you do so out of social conditioning/indoctrination.) because imagine if i said there is no such thing as crime and you read from a list of crim, yet i persist that crime is not real/spoke around the subject miscatorgrised as a noun much like you did here with the word sin...

your ignorance here with sin is the same level of ignorance i would have to expend to pretend there is no crime. it simple identified the person pretending as a indoctrinated sheep.

I'd get rid of the belief in divine law. There all made by men with sticks up their asses.

We may have to reinstitute lobotomy as an option for some.
I don't have an anger problem, I have an idiot problem

The things you list are crimes or ethical shortcomings, not sins. As you and your ilk are so fond of telling us, a sin is a transgression of divine law. Since divine law exists only as a fantasy in the minds of weak-brained people, sin is a non-concept.

You can’t rid the world of something that doesn’t exist.

"Sin" is a bullshit superstitious word. If one wants to argue the world would be better if there was less violence and meanness in the world, I'd go for that. But the fact that humans will always do good, and always do bad, does not justify chalking either up to bullshit superstition.

God and Satan don't explain shit anymore than Darth Vader and Yoda do.
