    It is odd that this thread should arise at this time.

    Here is something from another thread posted slightly earlier today in relation to a similarity between religion and trading.



    "I do not think that there is any curiosity for an open discussion here, but let me just say that trading as offered to the retail customer is greed repackaged as opportunity.

    What is offered to the retail customer is not in their best interests but it is presented in such a manner as to offer financial salvation and all that is required is a leap of faith.

    In both cases we are dealing with fear, very deep sited fear, sometimes displayed in it's naked form but most often repackaged

  5. Didn't Jesus work for Goldman Sachs?

    Actually, this is a really good opportunity to see how good a marketing guy this dude is. Maybe he looks on it as a challenge to see if he can sell Jesus as being into material stuff (wouldn't Jesus just HAVE to have an mansion and Ferrari these days?)
