Franc's Challenge - Zach wins !

Due to the dearth of challengers from the Christian side for Franc's Challenge, Zach has proposed Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Yea, I guess you got me there. I don't see any substantial moral objection to these verses, and they answer the causal criteria. Zachary wins.

I would like to note, by the way, that it took an atheist to find it.

I should also note the pretty much everything else in Ecclesiastes is immoral, since it teaches that happiness is not a virtue. This section is a rare departure from the text, and it likely a foreign insertion- Ecclesiastes was written after the Babylonian exile, and this passage has a striking resemblance to the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh.
