"First, as I've already told you how many times? They would have to confirm the existence of this creator, and therefor his ability to do it. Otherwise it is neither logical or reasonable. No I don't rule it out, I just see no evidence it's true. The base of all morality is the ethic of reciprocity, or as you know it, the golden rule, which predates even the Jewish religion. It's most likely source for Jewish and Christian religions, was the Egyptians, who were the nearest culture that expressed it before them. In any event, it's been expressed in multiple cultures, in multiple religions and by multiple philosophers, for far longer.

" Johnny laughs, "It doesn't matter to you?" Marshall says, "Dad has been alone so long it would be nice to see him go out once in a while with someone he got along with. If something more develops from it, good. It probably would be good for your Mom too, to have a friend to be with once in a while.
" Joan giggles and says, "That is the first time I ever seen Mom tease anyone. I think it made her night. " Grandma giggles and says, "I think the two of them would be good for each other...the end of the story look at the video above ↑ ↑ ↑
