Ok, I guess first would come somewhat of a confession:
:::Stands up::: My name's Sam, and I'm a Recovering-Catholic.
LOL, yep, I was raised Roman Catholic, and was the best damned alter boy my church had ever seen. All the priests wanted me to be lead altar boy during there mass, even over boys MUCH older. In fact, they were all trying to groom me for joining Seminary School when I grew up.
(and no, you pervs, they didn't "try" anything. only a very, very small percent of society are pedophiles)
..anyway, I was always having intellectual conversations about philosophy and theology with the priests from a very young age. Anyway, here is one agrument I always used to make that would make even the most stead-fast priests concede defeat:
"If there REALLY is a 'Divine Plan', then of course those who are SUPPOSED to be born are the one's that happen to be in the minority and wind up as fertilized eggs.... ..and since no form of birth control is totally effective (except elective sterilization)then wouldn't logic dictate that those same DIVINELY INTENDED people be the ones who slipped through the "gaps" in the effectiveness of Birth Control?"
...anyone have a thought? heh
