Seven more mortal sins

March 10, 2008

This is making the rounds today.

  1. Environmental pollution
  2. Genetic manipulation
  3. Accumulating excessive wealth
  4. Inflicting poverty
  5. Drug trafficking and consumption
  6. Morally debatable experiments
  7. Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

Now, at least for #1 and #3 above, everybody on Earth commits these to some extent. By living (and maybe even after we die) we pollute by driving cars, flying, using plastic water bottles, etc. Excessive wealth could be taken to be anything over and above what it is needed to subsist on. Don’t know if that’s what meant by #3, but I guess it can be interpreted that way. We are all sinners then, you could say.
