I would be very interested in whether you believe there is a devil. Where do we get our sense of right and wrong, good and evil from? Do you believe everything has an opposite? If you're an advanced monkey how is it that we are not amoral like an animal who has no real sense of right and wrong? Personally I do believe there is a devil and he's alive and well, and an increasingly busy boy.

So where do you think our sense of right and wrong come from. Where do your thoughts about decisions you make originate? Do you ever think about it? Actually do you think? Sorry if that seems a bit abrupt but this is supposed to be a debating site and quite frankly you haven't debated at all. In my opinion you have just totally wasted this debate and quite possibly denied somebody else who might have the desire to express their opinion and the reasons for it that opportunity. Short one line statements are not a debate and if you can't do better than that please don't bother me again.
