I am trying to put together some thoughts I have on logic and morality. Let me know what you think, and please let me know, if I have taken credit someone else's saying...

Some of my own observations....
*It's not bein’ mean, if you're just statin' the facts.
*You show me an impossible situation, and I will show a God who will prove you wrong
*Truth is subjective. Honesty is not.
*You show me a fool, and I will show you a book(the Bible) that says, "DON'T CALL HIM THAT!"
*If you are not sure if it is right or not, DONT DO IT!
*I would tell you my opinion of lawyers, but I don't like to use that kind of language.
*"The Lord helps those who help themselves" is not in the bible, but collecting pictures of the author, Ben Franklin, is the religion of many.
*Politics - Many Ticks.
*If wise people agree with your logic, you are called wise. If the fools disagree with your logic, you are called a fool.
*Trying to meet in the middle does not make much sense, if you are not clear where the middle is.
*If you confuse trying to meet in the middle, with a destination, you usually miss the point.
*Anyone who thinks they are perfect, should trying being a machinist.
*Remember, preachers are not God, they just work for him.
*All things are possible with God, however some things are a lot less likely than others.
*God is everywhere. He must be, because I meet people who think they are him all the time.
*One sure test that a man is not wise, is that they think I am.
*Genius is of no value, without self sufficiency.
*A Genius thinks outside the box. An idealist questions the morality of the box being there. A *farmer, on the other hand, takes out his pocket knife.
*Don’t complain about something, if you have done nothing to fix it yourself.
*The key to understanding God begins with the realization that, God is beyond understanding.
*If you think you can do a better job, what are you waiting for?
*It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.
*Trying to fix hurt feelings with logic, is like trying to solve an equation with a screwdriver.
*Feelings without logic is madness. Logic without feelings is a lawyer.
*Honor without kindness is dishonorable.
*For most people, integrity ends where discomfort begins.
*It is said that God does not change, but I have news for you, you’re not God.
*You can’t really know someone until you have lived with them, and chances are, you probably don’t even then.
*An honest man admits that he lies.
*If you think your boss holds you to a high standard, try being a preacher.
*The question is not, does God speak to his people. The question is if they are listening.
*The more I know, the more I know how much I need to know more.
*You can’t hear the truth when you refuse to listen.
*Logic does not appeal to those who do not like to think for themselves.
*Martyrs get famous, but cowards get old.
*To live in fear is to not live at all.
*When someone tells you that something can’t be done, usually it just means they could not do it.
*The early bird may get the worm, but I do not personally aspire to eat worms.
*When God created mornings, he should have slept later.
*You know you are old, when dirt calls you “sir.”
*College would have been so cool, if not for all those darn classes.
*It is good to rust, but wiser to verify.
*Honesty does not require a good memory.
*To laugh is one thing, to point is quite another.
*Just because you can teach it, does not mean you can do it, and just because you can do something, does not mean you know why.
*Knowing the mechanics of hitting a home run, does not make me Babe Ruth.
*I was raised to respect my elders, especially when they are as “eld” as….
*Realists make the world work, Idealists make the world interesting.
*Utilitarianism is lazy morality.
*A real man of integrity is willing to remove all doubt, by not resting on his laurels.
*If everyone is jumping off a cliff, get in the back of the line, because eventually the pile will save you.
*The number of believers does not make a lie any more true.
*You can avoid a lying by not answering.
*Many people try to see what something is like, instead of what it is.
*Evil thrives in the guise of entertainment.
*Innocent men don’t run.
*When someone won’t face you, it is usually an attempt to not loose face.
*Don’t ask a question, if you are not prepared to accept the answer.
*God answers all prayers, you were just not listening.
*Hey, I’m glad I’m not perfect. Look at what happened to the last guy who was.
*Just because your parents told you something, does NOT make it a fact.
*If you trust in a man instead of God eventually you will be disappointed.
*Don’t blame God for the results of your stupidity.
*Morality is useless without action.
*Money does not buy happiness. It is more like a time share relationship.
*A man who will not admit he is wrong, almost certainly is.
*If you can't understand a person, TRY HARDER!
*I believe that God will give strength for the day, but sometimes I think God has confused me with Samson.

We could probably all have a long and interesting discussion on most of those thoughts.

I regularly go to a pub quiz and to put it one way a lot of the teams 'help' each other.
Some would say this is cheating.
Personally if you do something that benefits both yourself and someone else then that is fair. Doing it just for your self is selfish.

Hi there, you probably know this already so excuse me if I'm telling you things you already know, it was Socrates who is responsible for the saying along the lines of - He is wisest who knows he knows nothing - Well, Plato, actually as Socrates never wrote anything down. Someone in Athens went to the Oracle at Delphi and asked who was the wisest man in Athens. The Oracle said it was Socrates. When he found this out he was aghast and set about questioning everyone he could among the supposedly 'wise' men of the Athens nobility to prove that the Oracle was not correct. Upon all of this questioning he realised that the Oracle was indeed correct because all of the people he spoke to thought they knew things and upon being questioned, proved without doubt that they had no idea what they were talking about. He agreed at the end that he must be the wisest as he was the only one who KNEW that he knew nothing. On eof my favourite stories about him can be seen as a contemporary criticism on consumerism. He went to the marketplace one day and spent all day standing in front of one particular stall (he was well know for going 'catatonic' for hours on end while he pndered something). At the end of the day the stallholder was packing up and decided to ask him what deep and mysterious thoughts he had been having throughout the day. He looked at the stall and the stallholder and said that he was thinking 'What a lot of things I don't need', then promptly went home.

Actually, I have never heard that story before. You know, if I was really smart, I would'nt be so broke that I can't pay attention. My Idealistic crusades are rarely profitable..... but then again it is written in 1 Corinthians 1:25-29 (New Living Translation)"This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength. 26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy[a] when God called you. 27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28 God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God."
With this in mind, perhaps there is hope for me yet.

I'm gonna sum that all up in one sentence:

Leave the world a better place for you being in it.

Just my 1.5

*If wise people agree with your logic, you are called wise. If the fools disagree with your logic, you are called a fool.

I like that one
