@Mr. Tovey

Hey I am back Mr. Tovey. Remember me having a fruitful discussion some time back. This is what you had to say.

"And finally, no natural born human can ever, EVER, clean one's self from the mortality that is the result of sin."

What you are saying is just the logical extension from John Calvin who is the godfather of all you evangelists. John Calvin (the Swiss monomaniac philosopher who burnt Michael Serv
etus alive) created this idea that human beings are too sinful to save themselves and God makes a "choice" of elected peoples who will get heaven irrespective of their beliefs and works in this life.

I say that this is not your independent thinking and you need to come up with something of your own to prove me wrong. My advice to you is to Stop reading those rubbishes from Calvin and start reading something positive say like Nietzsche.
