Susan, regarding Ray, I am not saying that you are trying to obfuscate anything. However, you are forced to do this, if you insist on upholding the secularist party line which says there can be no 'sin' based on any authority. And this is exactly what you do constantly, when you make generalizations.
The 'astonishingly small' bit, although laudable for you to acknowledge, (leaving aside the fact that such matters cannot be quantified), is not permitted in secularism which insists on denying all extraneous influences such as God. This comes up every time a specific issue is raised. Secularism simply denies, denies and denies.
Sure, your question was a fair one in general. But since it is based on abstract thinking, it is very much like how we experience the very real experiences of happiness etc. As such, while fair it is quite beside the point. You can't even clarify what sin is or is not. All you can do is try to put it into a conceptual box where it 'must' be a mistake, according to your secularist thinking.
