Ben Babcock

Western society

Ben: I blame the church Lauren: lol Lauren: For what? Ben: Everything. Ben: No, think about it. Ben: The Church's only major opponents throughout history have been educated people. Remove the desire to learn, and you remove the potential for educated people to undermine your grip on the world. Ben: In fact, all of Western society is essentially a sinful existence purposefully manufactured by the Church for the Church. It reinforces laziness, and offers so many decadent temptations (reality television, celebrity scandal, capitalism, etc.) that it's quite hard not to sin. And then who steps in to absolve you? The Church.

Just thought I'd share. :angel: Society these days is so complicated that it is hard to believe there's not someone behind the scenes pulling the strings.

Conspiracy theories are great, aren't they? ^_^

About this site

I started coding websites, in bad HTML on Geocities, in 2004 in a fit of whimsy. Since then I’ve learned PHP/MySQL, coded my own blog software, and rebuilt this site several times. With the exception of the blog, it’s currently running on the exquisite Symphony CMS. This website is hosted by HawkHost
