Like I said no one in their RIGHT mind would dare argue this point with me. I am not a preacher and you are mistaken. I do not want anything to do with G.O.D. I do not kill anyone or judge the worth of anyone based on any amount of G.O.D.
Take your stolen car and your oil trap with your fake diamonds and shiny trinkets and find someone else to call a hypocrite.

You lose. Carry On.


The vast majority of the energy in this world is generated via fossil fuels. I'd bet that at some point in your life you benefit from that.

The keyboard you use, the mouse, the monitor, anything else with even an ounce of plastic in it...oil based. You're using it. You buy it.

If you drive a car or WALK on a sidewalk...you benefit from oil.

Your computer/phone/TV/remote control/alarm clock most certainly have gold, and in some cases, diamonds, built into them.

A preacher is someone who preaches...and you're preaching about the evils of gold, oil, and diamonds, and you're using gold, oil, and possibly diamonds to do so!

You're truly a hypocrite, and in need of some education on gold, oil, and diamonds. Say what you will about certain powers benefiting from them more than most, and disproportionate values, but until you get your basic facts straight you can't possibly be taken seriously. I don't care if you don't WANT anything to do with gold or oil or diamonds - the fact is you ARE using them and your life benefits from them, so perhaps you should rethink your stance on this.

This is a self perpetuating problem, to be "accepted" by society you must have certain qualities, trades, monetary value etc
Once those goals have been reached, you become part of the problem, you'll entertain the same mentality and judge-mentality of worthiness on others.
It's like those who smoke and give up, they become far more critical of smokers than those who never have.

The trick here is to detach yourself from society, not to hide from it, but neither entertain it's ideology.
Follow your heart not your head, it doesn't know better.
Let the opinions of yourself far outweigh the opinions of others

But alas, that's a lonely road.

Great thread

Just because I benefit from these things does not mean I condone the actions of those that force the issue. I did not invent this crappy system. Living in the society that has been created by silly people to control the masses. I chose to be here and if you want to call it preaching you are part of the problem and not the solution.

Again, the fact I wrote this thread only means I want it to change, so how does it make me a hypocrite to try and extol the virtues of living in a society without trying to measure somebodies worth by what they own?

The only hypocrite is you. You came in here and decided to troll me. You are trying to tell me I am not worthy, because I have the audacity to use technology. One does not have anything to do with the other.

You are either a nice considerate person who tries to do the right thing in spite or you are a bad horrible person that does the same as the other greedy arrogant jerks that measure someones worth on something other than what they own. Materialistic crap.

I do my part try doing yours instead of making excuses and labeling me a hypocrite and a preacher. I am neither and you need to go look in the mirror and judge your own actions and behavior.

No honey, it is not self perpetuation to live in a world not of our making. It is survival. We have very little choice in the matter unless we are in the top 1 %. Let's be honest. That doesn't mean we have to consider the wealth of someone or the color of their skin or the sexual proclivities or the religion or lack thereof as a means to compose the worth of a human.

We are humans first and we are equal. No matter what our societal status is. That we can control. Sure we don't have to be materialistic, but we are expected to survive and basic necessities are our responsibility.

Right now having a cell phone and being connected to the Internet are basic necessities. Does it mean we have to buy the best and fastest connection or cell service or computers, no.

When we are forced to be without these items, how will the majority fair, horrible. Me I won't miss a beat. I will still be worth the same I am today if not more. How about you? Do you measure your worth by what technology you use?

Not only are you a preaching hypocrite, you're also condescending. Don't go calling people honey while attempting to invalidate their points.

You're wrong in your response to me. You could very well minimize your use of gold, oil, and diamonds, but you CHOOSE not to. Let's be clear - nobody is forcing you to sit on your computer, and nobody forced you to buy a computer, or pay for the electricity to run it. Your use of the things you despise only further discredits you. To say that having a cell phone or internet is a basic necessities, akin to food and water, is ridiculous. You are privileged to have a cell phone and internet - it is NOT a right nor a necessity. It is a convenience.

How can you take yourself seriously, and how can anyone take your points seriously, when you're using and enjoying the exact things you're opposing? Financially supporting those who deal in oil/gold/diamonds is a form of supporting them. Not only that, but you go on to prove Village Idiots point - you live in a world that IS your own making, like it or not. Anyone who thinks otherwise (barring the obvious, such as laws, others around you, foreign entities, etc - I'm referring to your immediate world) is wrong.

You're one step away from saying you hate car companies while being a new car collector.

I think the overall degeneration and proliferation of capitalism and consumerism may be just a terrible accident going back thousands of years. In some sense "the fall in the garden" really did occur. Some sort of falling out of balance with the natural order. Although, from what I understand, tribal groups in the Amazon war and kill each other as well, but walk much lighter on the Earth itself. Perhaps it is the Anglo genetic line that actually "fell" into materialism when they discovered natural cycles such as sex/pregnancy/birth and planting/harvest cycles. Books like 'Guns, Germs and Steel' lay out a good explanation of this fall into agriculture, which paved the way to this type of Hell. A Frankenstein we have collectively, but unconsciously created that has slipped out of our control...

Maybe if you yell it a little louder the next door neighbors will hear you and get you the help you need.

Religion is indeed a disease. I agree with the OP's sentiments.

How about you? Do you measure your worth by what technology you use?


Lol, if I did I would truly be worthless

I'm willing to completely chalk my lack of understanding of the OP up to my own stupidity and ignorance, it's happened before. I might be a complete dumbass. But I am completely failing to see what anything in the OP has to do with the title of the OP, being "G.O.D is What Is Wrong With This Planet...".

Are you using GOD as an acronym of sorts? Does this MEAN something other than GOD? Do you mean religion? 25+ stars, 24 flags? It obviously means SOMETHING important to that many people, this is why I must be a complete dumbass, because this thread makes 0 sense to me.

That's foolish. Using technology doesn't make you a hypocrite. Using it in the manner defined in the OP and than railing against it does. The OP touched on an important aspect of what's wrong with this world and you are outlining another, Ego.

There is no need to try to twist the intent of the OP when it's premiss is clear. As she stated she both recognizes what is wrong, how her actions contribute and is identifying what she can do about it.

To the OP, bravo! Any step in stabilizing yourself outside the system is great! You may never be truly free but you can get out of the trap.

That may be true, but in this world those are paramount and the same would be said of anything that serves to put a value on anything other than life. We are humans. We are supposed to be equal and yet the worth of all is calculated using a convoluted system.


The problem is all of us are NOT equal, so this false idea is leading to your feelibgs being hurt.

Since this is a conspiracy site I can say that the gods want our gold.

The Earth's history is littered with gods wanting the gold.

So the gods (aliens) are the problem.

Shame on all of you. I am downright disgusted. Daily by the events.


Yeah right, O' righteous one. How is it YOU shames all of us? Are you better than the rest of the world? Shame yourself, or get out in the world an fix it instead of blaming everyone else. We have ust as much power as you.What do you want me to do ...run out in the street and start a riot? Maybe write my "bought and sold Congressman"? Since it's so easy for you to point and blame others...why don't you tell us the secret to cleaning up this demon filled world, instead of casting stones at those who ARE sinners.....and btw, it's gold, oil and drugs...not diamonds.

I dare you to argue this point with me. Who in their right mind could?


My higher power, the source of all, is sadly disappointed in the choices humans have made.



How can a fictitious character from a story book be sadly disappointed

We are born and we hopefully mature. I believe as a species we came and went many times. Some individuals mature but the system is ruled by the immature!! Until a notable progression in the maturation of the species exists more of the same.
Maybe the cultural revolution failed? Mixing of races and cultures could be a bad idea. Just saying!!

Lol.. You say all that but you dont even know half the story. It's worse in a way. All that is happening now is simple causality. It is all part of the spectrum of freedom or free will. Everything is allowed in freedom, the worst like the best. When an extreme is reach globally, looking back in time, it's always corrected in one way or another. The world will correct itself in any manner you can imagine. It will rebalance everything by wiping out everything. It is not limited to good and evil so its doing just what it must..

IT'S NOT OUR FAULT!!! It's in our nature!

No but really. You're right, OP.

Are you aware of how much Gold and other "precious" metals are in that computer you are using? Are you aware of the amount of natural resources spend putting it together? Are you aware of the Oil being burned to provide it (and your ISP) with power? These things do not run on a sense of self satisfaction.

The devil wears prada.

I guess cause we live in the physical world so we worship men. Idols. Things.

People thing they are smart for having retirement funds but I think people are smart who invest in the life hereafter.

Just as it is written we should seek to invest it the world to come.


Much is to be said about th antichrist and the number of the beast and that if worship of man over god.
