A wise man with sharp teeth!

A wonderful quote by the late, great Christopher Hitchens, that I found on the web:

MORALITY - "Name one moral action performed by a believer that could not have been done by a nonbeliever. Now, can you name a hideous moral act undertaken because of their faith? You've already thought of one. Now you've thought of another one. You'll keep on thinking of them." [Christopher Hitchens]

Spud, excellent point! Movies and news need conflict to sell products, even if they have to fabricate it.

Love your graphic Grinning Cat.  And kudos to Joan for inspiring you.

Joan, when I read your comment: "a clear image of living in close quarters and not killing each other or arguing over stuff", it reminded me again of the movie Apollo 13, where Ron Howard had the astronauts arguing, when in reality they did no such thing.  He made a great movie except for that.

Of course -- feel free to spread it far and wide! For what it's worth, I remixed two "free to use, share, and modify" photos. If you prefer, here's another version with my handle instead in the credit:

May I repost your "Morals and Ethics come from being born a social animals" on Facebook to you? I can't take credit for the idea, I stole it from someone else. You did the creative graphics and deserve credit.

I like your words far better than mine! You provide the oomph with a clear image of living in close quarters and not killing each other or arguing over stuff. I am so impressed! I should have known you would be a good graphic designer, given the fine face you created for your avatar.
