Good point Dweeb! I couldn't agree with you more that other responses have lacked philosophical insight. Admitting that I'm no intellectual philosophical giant, I've endeavoured to arrive at a conclusion based on the facts that have been available You've read the justification for my opinion which I have arrived using objective reasoning devoid of my subjective yearnings. Now, if you can provide me with a counter argument using the same logical process to show that I am incorrect, I will abandon my opinion and believe the contrary. At this stage you've given me no reason to beleive otherwise that Mother teresa , although a good woman, did nothing to make the world a better place in any lasting sense. I'd also like to emphasise that I have not bashed the good intentions of mother teresa, but only stated that her good intentions were restricted by the religious doctrines that she preached.
This is the core of my argument. These unquestioned docrines have assisted in retarding progress for the people she cared for. Bertrand Russell covers how the churches have retarded progress in his essay, "Why I am not a christain" In light of what I have provided you with , hopefully you'll investigate for yourself
this issue and maybe change your mind on the deeply held conviction you obviosly have about mother teresa.
