Terrifying Thought

If purgatory is real, what if it involves sitting in a boring room for the exact amount of time I wasted on social media?

Thought for the Day

A common justification for behavior these days is, "it's only natural."

But why?

If the Christian perspective is correct, then human nature is corrupt. Just because a desire or behavior is natural doesn't necessarily make it acceptable or good.

On the other hand, if the atheistic naturalists are correct, then there is no such thing as the supernatural. If there's no such thing as the supernatural, then everything is natural. If everything is natural, then how can "it's only natural" be a justification? The justification is essentially, "it exists." Not much of a justification.

"It's only natural" is a ground for sympathy, but not for morality.
