Spring is sneaking in around here. It's time to start those annuals indoors and plant those peas outside.
TOTD: Is society as a whole better off when people follow or at least incline toward basic religious commandments on broad areas of human behavior? This guy makes a case for it:
Tough love And Faith
Looking at my own life, it's clear that I am pretty lazy and naturally irresponsible. Although I can think of a lot of reasons to overcome this inclination from a religious point of view, I can't think of any reasons to do so from a purely pragmatic view. After all, plenty of lazy and irresponsible people are just as successful as I am and some are more widely admired. On the other hand, I think society as a whole would be better off if people were guided more by morality and less by nature.
What do you think?
