I was really hoping for some comments defending either the idea that life was good(in any sense) or that life was good(in the sense that it is holy.)
I think that it is safe to say that, in general, people will cling to life. Even more generally, it is probably safe to say that all life clings to life.
But is that because there is a basic 'goodness' to life?
Now, I believe that religious people will, without even thinking about it, without thinking that they even need to think about it, would say that life is 'good' at least in the sense of being 'holy' or sacred.
I was hoping for some 'action' from eric or Botts, something that we could get some 'traction' on to at least get past the 'beginning', the Genesis, in the sense that there is some kind of definite 'goodness' to life and/or in the sense that 'God saw that it was good!'.
I was hoping to create some kind of beginning point that we might agree on, or even not agree on without going full tilt into a religious or anti-religious rant!
