Quote (Chris Hyland @ Mar. 25 2007,18:00)
Empathy is the anchor in my life, and that's what I should have said to them.
I think the response to this would be that since you can't prove that empathy evolved, or explain exactly how chemical reactions in the brain produce it it is not material and therefore as an atheist you are a hypocrite.
Well, they can sue me.  :)

I'm suddenly reminded of a quote about hypocrisy from Oscar Wilde, who said not to portray yourself as dangerous and wild in public but in reality be domestic and a goody two-shoes in private!  :D

Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
