I know you're not religious, etc... but I think you're a pretty cool dude. What do you think of God's advice, that we love Him first, then our neighbors, then ourselves. Do you think there is a flaw behind that order?

Alright, let's take away the first step - just say love others first and foremost, then yourself last. Is that good advice?
