Life is sacred? Who said so? God? If you read history, you realize that God is one of the leading causes of death. Has been for thousands of years. Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians all taking turns killing each other because God told them it was a good idea. The bloodiest, most brutal wars fought, all based on religious hatred.

Even if there were such a thing as the "sanctity of life," I don"t think it"s something you can blame on God. No, you know where the sanctity of life came from? We made it up. You know why? Because we"re alive. Self-interest. Living people have a strong interest in promoting the idea that somehow life is sacred. You don"t see Abbott and Costello running around, talking about this, do you? We"re not hearing a whole lot from Mussolini on the subject. What"s the latest from JFK? Not a goddam thing. Because JFK, Mussolini and Abbott and Costello are dead. They"re dead. And dead people give less than a s*** about the sanctity of life. Only living people care about it so the whole thing grows out of a completely biased point of view. It"s a self serving, man-made bulls*** story.

It"s one of these things we tell ourselves so we"ll feel noble. Life is sacred. Makes you feel noble. Well let me ask you this: if everything that ever lived is dead, and everything alive is gonna die, where does the sacred part come in?
