The Vatican built an $900M empire from money given to it by Mussolini

An interesting article from the Guardian caught my eye today. They uncovered that the Vatican holds property worth over $900M, that was initially financed by money given to it by Mussolini to give his dictatorship the papal seal of approval.Few passing London tourists would ever guess that the premises of Bulgari, the upmarket jewellers in New Bond Street, had anything to do with…See More

Akshay Bist replied to Unseen's discussion 'If You Ruled The World, How Would You Handle Copyright?'
"So what I proposed was not just the market value of the infringed items. It would be a fine, and it would be variable, depending upon the scale and intention of the infringement. Personal use - small fine. To sell bootlegs - bigger fine, and so on. "

Long story - I was told that god created the universe so I started wondering who created god. So I thought that god's god must've created the gods. And those higher gods must have their own gods & so on. That didn't seem likely so I figured that there was no god. And that too before I turned 8

Another reason to leave religion

Hi Akshay,

Happy New Year.  Would you like to take a look at this?  I've made a good stab at the Objective Morality theory.
