    The hollow ones.
    To generalise would be dangerous so let me answer as you present a specific item and I can tell you how I regard it.
    The meaning of life.
    No I lied and I now feel terrible but I say that I am sorry and ask you to forgive me.
    Yes and a very important part.
    No I said my heart.
    Yes and it is a very nice drift Jan.
    Along its sides and just a little at the back.
    Good I thought the opposite.
    And you spend your spare time here how nice.
    I dont understand why not but I must accept your answer just do not say in the future that you answer all my questions.
    I am disappointed and now wonder what is the point of your various observations re "I" me mine body and soul ... dont you have any meaningful point you would care to make?
    When Wiki has an edit?
    And a nice job you did Jan almost enlightened but not.

    I don't get the point of the question.
    To be honest, I don't think it is a question, despite the question mark.

    If you're asking if theism means one does not care about people, then I'd have to say no.

    Jan I will never forget you.

    Although I dont know you and have never met you I like and respect you.

    I have learnt a great deal about the art of discussion from you and you have provided me with a small insite into the realm of spirituality and although it may not seem apparent to you I really do appreciate all your efforts and the time you take to, I presume in your view, help me.

    You certainly cause me to think about things that I normally dont think about.

    I am sure we both, although our approahes may be different, seek to be decent humans.

    Yours sincerely
    Alex

    And of course, things which do belong to me yet are not separate : my eye, my knee, my ear, my left foot, my brain, etc.

    Most con artists who cannot prove their claims and/or honesty are arrested and/or put out of business unless their cons are done in the guise of religion. It is astounding the things people are allowed to do in the name of god(s) which otherwise would not be allowed.

    I could not get funding for a soup kitchen because I have no religion.

    Hard to evaluate. Perhaps someone should ask why they get tax exemption if not under the pretense of being a church. I'm betting it is under the pretense of being a charity
    Which then leads to under what rules do you operate as a charity ie you must expend at least 80% of donations and no more than 20% for operating costs which would include salaries

    Which leads to who policies compliance?

    How does that compare to legitimate charities?

    Legitimate charities don't require you to be a member - undergo a fake examination - isolate you from your family if they are not members

    I don't know about the percentage charity / expenses but I do think one exist be they church or nondenominational

    I'm not a great fan of some of the largest charities which seem to have attracted executives with a appetite for large salaries

    And not beyond stuffing up

    Take the Red Cross after the Bali bombing. Collected millions for the victims. Spent some on building a TB clinic in Bali. Some went for ambulances which when sent to Bali were the wrong type. The remaining balance was I understand about 11 million with around 11 still critical victims. Simple sum 1 million each yes. No no no. If we give them a million each they loose some government benifits. We'll hold onto it and give it out to them if they really need it and it can also help other worthy people
    Grrrrrr
