    Can anyone come up with any spiritual, philosophical or even ideological wisdom rooted in the observation that 'Cats fight over food but not over milk'? What other feline attributes and behaviours can you distil to form the basis of aphorisms about the human condition?

    Have you run out of reasons to "call out" Christians and so you resort to inviting them to prosecute themselves?

    Any thoughts on this OP [which is not inviting Christians to prosecute themselves, by the way]?

    I see Buddhist and humanist teaching in this quote from Walter Lionel George (author, A Bed of Roses)

    “Cats know how to obtain food without labour, shelter without confinement, and love without penalties.”

    Do you ever take enough meds to keep your emotions in check?

    I'm afraid I can't come up with much on this other than to observe that some in this forum like to fight over split sour milk.

    How's that?

    I think this bit of advice may have had a bit more authority to it if it actually came from someone who was able to keep their own emotions in check.

    Well, I hate the way this sounds, but I thought cats fought over pussy.

    I think that pretty much sums up a pervading human condition.

    They are a group. Innate, sure, but they have rules that don't involve us directly. They are a sentient species that we like. They like us too.
