It is the same. A handfull of something can only equal another handfull or something else when you use this as an argument of comparison.

A ton of feather is always equal to a ton of rock... Only the volume of the said ton change, a ton is a ton.

But unlike a ton, a handful isn't a unit of weight, so this would be a different type of situation.

Edit: My vote goes to folly, by the way.

I always pay my debts and sin is myth. So debt, obviously.

Wait a minute: you make a pool about what is heavier, sin or debt, and now you say that "if you’re not into christian religion, the sin wont bother you"? Then, why making this question?

And can someone "dig" a definition of "sin" anywhere?
I believe that even atheists have the sense to recognise an action as being right or wrong and that is done in a very similar way christians - and followers from other religions too - identify it as being a sin or not.

And I'm still maintaining previous statement: it depends on the "sin" (or whatever you want to call it) and on the debt.

For example, I have one very big debt, one I'll never be able to pay, to my parents: they had me, they raised me, and they provided me an education.
And I also have "little" sin's, like "pi$$ing" of someone's head.
And it is also very easy to find examples opposite to these ones.

Ofcourse. Im a half-atheist, meaning that I don't believe in god or any allmighty, but I don't deny the idea of somekind of existence after life, althought I see it very unlikely to happen. I have sense of right and wrong and I always seek to do the best thing, and the good thing as well as possible. I hate corruption, greed, liars etc..

That I think I know what is right or wrong, doesn't mean that it's christian way. I certainly have opinions and sins that wouldn't fit the christian way of thinking. If it doesn't feel like Im hurting myself or other people, I say it's atleast lesser sin.

You can always pay back: don't forget them. Too many old people are forgotten and abandoned. Go and see them, help them when they need it. It is price good enough. Support abandonware!
