[God knows how many snips...]
Future "salvation vectors" are much more likely to be based upon "wisdom
vectors" rather than "mercy vectors". Wise actions will save many more
people than merciful behaviors, particularly those directed towards an
improbable and unprovable direction.).
Ray does not understand this completely but he is light years ahead of
people such as M. Theresa.
The bottom line is that ~6 million people a year are dying (99.9+% on an
unrecoverable path). So when one presents an argument in this forum it
should be in the context of *this* will save *X* million people a year.
Anything less than that and you tend to lose my interest.
Someone has to set the bar.
