I agree with Nepharski that Pride is the "Father" of the six other sins. In biblical and religious allegory Pride was linked with seeing one-self as being higher than God. Pope Gregory the Great listed Suberbia or Pride as the foremost and ultimate sin followed by Envy. Dante Alighieri defined Pride as: " The love of self perverted to hatred and contempt of one's neighbour." The Catholics considered Pride to be responsible for Satan's fall into damnation. In classical mythology, the tragic hero is always destroyed by his own hubris or Pride. Pride has been a continual motiff throughout history and Nepharski draws on a wonderful point that Pride sparks hatred between men. Pride spawns all other sins and its contrary is the Heavenly virtue of Humility.
All the sins are dangerous in one way or another, but I would still place Pride as the front.

1) You can't avoid feeling pride in the same way you can't avoid feeling any other emotion.
2) While you also can't avoid Lust you an choose not to act on it, like when one sees a delicious looking cake in a bakers window but does not go in and buy/steal it then proceed to gorge upon it.

Also:
Lust does not cause AIDs. You can AIDs without lusting for the heroine/sexual partner/bodily liquid of those with AIDs.
Yeah, if you lust after someone and screw them without protection then you can get AIDs. If you are Greedy and sleep with many partners without protection or take heroine then you could get AIDs. Or some ass could just spit in your Big Mac and spread AIDs that way.
Lust =/= AIDs.

Yes, lust isn't as deadly as pride. Lust doesn't spread AIDs either. Not unless it is purposely done.

@popogeejo: what do you mean by protection?
and what is the sin exactly (for lust) the emotion or the act?

Protection = Condoms.
Lust is a feeling/urge. It's not a sin. None of these are sins. People can be Proud, be Greedy, be Glutinous, be Slothful, be Lustful, be Envious and be Wrathful without committing sin the same way one can be happy or sad or confused.
The seven "sins" tend to have negative effects but it's not certain.
Feeling isn't a sin and acting on them in an way that will effect others badly isn't a sin (It's not nice though).

People can't help what they feel but they can help how they act on these feelings.

Stupidity is the greatest sin, IMO.

I'll have to say all of them are dangerous, obviously. Even though I'm an atheist I can see how they are wrong.

I'd say the least is Gluttony, unless you eat people (like Gluttony from FMA. XD), and Pride doesn't seem that bad to me either, unless you just become flat out arrogant, it's good to have some confidence over your accomplishments.

I'd say the three worst are wrath, envy, and sloth. Wrath, because revenge is never any good. Two wrongs don't make a right. wink.gif Envy, because envying someone can make you lose yourself... and try to be more like them. (something I hate.) and of course sloth... Something I'm very guilty of. Laziness, it's a bad thing. I'll say that.

EDIT: How could I forget greed? XD It can be very bad I think... but not so bad if you don't let it get out of control.
