    I don't know what to say.. this must be the atheist hope

    Such thinking -- conscience as personal behaviour religiously guided -- is far too limiting for what is actually happening in the modern world.

    The old questions of personal conduct for a moral life have given way to new questions about the well-being of the citizens of the planet and of the planet itself.

    It is certainly not religions that are imposing such an ethic on the world; for the most part religions are still internally oriented, though the social teaching of some clearly leads to peace and world harmony.

    Just as personal conscience does not depend on religion for its effectiveness, so too global conscience transcends religions. It is deeply moral, but it crosses boundaries and is becoming interwoven in the processes of daily life.

    Care of the planet will do the trick for this guy. This "deeply moral" thing he talks about... would be fun to find out where he thinks these deep morals come from if not God.

    "of the new age in which the planet has become our common home"

    I hate to break it to him, but this common home is in bad shape. Web chatting with someone on the other side of the globe (even using a webcam) won't cure much.

    Yikes! Humorous and sad.
