    I challenge anyone out there to put a number to just how sinful you are. If I can find one of those county thingys that bouncers at clubs use for head counts, I will attempt to count every sin I commit this weekend coming up. Would anyone like to perform this social study along with me?

    How will we know when we've committed one, since we've done it all along and didn't notice?

    This experiment will no doubt conclude with a large margin of error. Use your own discretion, I guess. Cursing using God's name, adultery and murder via fantasy, lying, stealing, rejecting Christ when someone offers, etc. These are the sins we can more or less approximate with a degree of certainty.

    Do we count original sin? Because if we do, I'm not sure how to count it.
    Is it just one sin or what?

    Some sins should have more points than others. For example, taking the lords name in vain should be 1/2 to 1 point. Taking the lords name in vain dressed as the pope while sodomizing a sheep should be 2 to 3 points. Maybe we should designate categories such as carnal sins, sins against the church, and the big three murder, theft and mayhem, etc...

    I myself am going for a score of 54 as this looks like a light weekend coming up.

    Sure. It's like the free square in Bingo.

    These are all done with little, or more likely no thought given. This is not what I'd call a controlled experiment by any stretch.

    Oh boy. Well this idea is good but it is a tad involved. It would be impossible (or 'inpossable' as flyunity says) to develop and agree upon a schedule of scoring by Friday night.

    I suggest we just stick to one point per sin. That's how Jesus looks at it anyway, right? However, if you were to commit a "supersin" like sodomy, bestiality, homocide, go ahead and juice your score a little. You deserve it!

    My weekend is looking pretty hectic. Starting off with a gig on Friday night, party on Saturday and then doing my taxes on Sunday -- it should amount to all kinds of heinous and tax-related sins. I'll go ahead and guess at 156 for my score.

    Does thinking it and gleefully pondering the same make it scorable?

    I believe only murder or adultery count as sin if you just think it but I could be mistaken.

    EDIT - damn spelling and grammar

    Only if it's not consensual.

    1/2 points only unless you are gesturing lewdly or have exposed yourself while undertaking said thinking and gleeful pondering.

    Who's the ref going to be... Darfius? He is without sin afterall and capable of fairly condemning our sins.
