And so on indeed!
It's all mankind's responsibility, yes?
Slinging it on God's plate is what should be cracking people up.
The gift of free will comes with the bad stuff too. But, BUT!!! That is on us.
In a way, but I wonder, maybe just man preying upon man. Esoteric slavery and cannibalism disguised as benevolence? Then would it not be man's naivety?
Yeah (smile), " . . . . on God's plate."
Tis always someone else's fault . . . .
. . . . . and "gifts",
My grandmother grew up in the Goldfields of Western Australia, Cue was the name of the town. She would cross the road to touch a Chinaman for luck.
She thought the Chinese "Lucky bastards" (in the Australian vernacular) because they always had gold.
Truth be; they worked hard growing vegetables for which they were paid in gold in them days.
So, is freewill truely a "gift"? Or is is it something born of a sense of self that we have worked hard to develope as incarnating Beings?
If so, then perhaps one can suggest that the "collective consciousness" religeon strives for is something to grow out of in the first instance?
On the other hand, if "older" more cunning preditors were to construct a trap to catch human minds and freewill, then what better trap then an ideology?
Sorry Ruiner1978 I'm in one of those moods this morning. Need more coffee.
