Brakeman, you're on to something. It seems to me that the modern "debauchery" and "heathen" behavior that we see reflects our collective apathy over the wrath of any god. If we assume a normal distribution across societies in the U.S., then there will always be more self-professed Christians giving God the finger, than any other group.
Society no longer cares what God thinks about anything. And that, IMO, stems from the fact that God has abandoned modern man, I'm guessing, say just over 2,000 years ago?
Anyway, correct Brakeman, this is a thought experiment from a heart-hardened atheist!
