Sure you could. Right and wrong are only terms that society has mongered up. What seems "wrong" in almost all of society's mind (rape, bigotry, etc.) is only considered "wrong" because of that. As a whole, right and wrong are simply distinguished by what the majority of society decides.

Oh, and bag of milk? Am I the only one who finds that phrase to be overly-suggestive?

Used to have glass milk bottles in the UK, I think in the '80's sometime milk was in cartons instead.

About the whole everything in the world is relative conversation, our preacher preached a message on that, and I got so depressed that I almost killed myself. :facepalm: "EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD IS VANITY AND VEXATION OF ONE'S OWN SPIRIT. YOU DON'T MATTER IN THIS WORLD." crap like that.

That's not depressing, it quite vitalizing.

:wtf: ORLY. Well, I started thinking about the afterlife, then decided that there was no afterlife, but then realized it was the biggest gamble ever. Because, if there is no afterlife and I think there is an afterlife and behave accordingly, I don't lose anything, but if I behave like there is no afterlife and there is an afterlife I just copulate up bad. This is kinda religion, so if it's over the rules, tell me, I'll delete it.

To answer eurddrue, this sounds like Pascal's Wager to me...

(Link goes to Wikipedia, which does a better job explaining it than I would)

None of what you mentioned should have an effect on the life you live now. Leading your life in such a fashion will only lead to such "depressing" thoughts. ;)
