I can't understand why you might believe the concept of life is ambiguous. Most people recognize it, at least by it's absence.

What is the average lifespan of a human being now? What was it 50 years ago? 100 years ago? 1,000? Is the lifespan getting longer or shorter?

Is life better now than 50 years ago? Since you have a difficult time coming-up with your own definitions, let me offer mine. A better life is one which is healthier and allows the individual to live on his own terms. In a word, in liberty. Look at the world governments: Are there more democracies now than 50 years ago? 100 years ago? 1,000?

How about material well-being?

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

Well, apparently that sentence is perfectly valid as it applies to you; that's pretty neat. I'm glad you're doing better than at any time in your existence. We're all so very proud of your accomplishments

If Jay's doing better for himself, then thumbs up to him, as well. Hey, why don't we all give ourselves a great big ol' pat on the back for being who we are and doing what we do

Fair enough but I hate to see what is happening to the people that have their head up their butts (financially speaking anyway)

Equity in Housing is crashing as the prices for homes go down

ARM's are going back up soon

Crude, Gas, Heating oil and Gas going through the roof

Food Prices are going to fuck people in 2008

Okay, then why not step out on a limb and define these issues with your own words and ideas. Be bold. Show us what you've got.

I'm bold enough to state the obvious; the data is inconclusive and prone to culturally subjective bias

Uh, have you read the thread? I've been there, done that, and have been waiting for a non-faith based response. Instead I get the moonlit yapping of jackals in the darkness beyond the cooking fire -- either too stupid to recognize their own limitations or too timid to make a run at the food simmering on the fire. The cook laughs at them.
