So essentially greed didn't exist before Jobs? I seem to remember there being something in various religious scriptures about such things?
In any case, the whole "thank god for what you have" bullshit is completely counter to human nature. We strive to better ourselves and the lives of those we care about, just as any creature does. Their attitude that we should all be humble was blatantly invented to keep the peasants from getting above their station, nothing more.
