Hmm..

I disagree, but I think it would take some kind of Brave New World extremist hierarchy to allow it to happen.

(and still wouldn't be 100% of course - there's always the anomaly)



I have thought and thought on this idea for years and I believe it is a reasonable outline of a solution for mankind.

Have a working caste and a thinking caste
Use "soma" and entertainment to hypnotise the world population into realitive submission
Punish those who try and disrupt the hierarchy (or reassign them within it if feasible)

I know this sounds superficially abhorrent to many of the people here - but seriously think about it - we would all be in the thinking caste and have our desires for progress, research, creativity, and problem-solving fulfilled, and the rest of the population would have their more instinctual desires fulfilled as well.

No need for war - an efficent central government with minimal corruption would exist - and all humans would share in sufficent food/clothing/shelter/health care, etc.

Its either this, people, or we fight selfish wars for popular leaders until the Earth is ruined and we as a species are laid waste.

Its time for the luddites to get out of the way and for Humanity to start making real social progress again.

either the RAPTURE happens or ALIENS land...

Either of those things would start the marshall law being in effect...and you have no say any longer...they can take your homes, your guns, your belongings , and take you and toss you in a concentration camp...

So hope you go in the rapture...

Love, caring, understanding by man for man and the loss of personal ego. It's that simple, yet that hard for man to do.

maybe once we start implanting stuff in our brains 100 years down the line with nano tech we can develop a hive mind and eliminate all social problems, and all social situations altogether !!!!!!!!!!! hah


I bet some government will experiment with something like that for their militaries.

Jesus Christ!!

and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn

Matthew 24

Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man lead you astray. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ; and shall lead many astray. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for [these things] must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes in divers places. But all these things are the beginning of travail. Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name's sake. And then shall many stumble, and shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray. And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold. But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a testimony unto all the nations; and then shall the end come. When therefore ye see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him that readeth understand), then let them that are in Judaea flee unto the mountains: let him that is on the housetop not go down to take out things that are in his house: and let him that is in the field not return back to take his cloak. But woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on a sabbath: for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the Christ, or, Here; believe [it] not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told you beforehand. If therefore they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the wilderness; go not forth: Behold, he is in the inner chambers; believe [it] not. For as the lightning cometh forth from the east, and is seen even unto the west; so shall be the coming of the Son of man. Wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

I am going to have to agree with you, judging by our track record as humans. Every major massacre was somhow related to some religion. And 99% of terrorism is religion based too. You could argue the same stuff will happen without religion, but if you look at the people doing these things, all the crazy stuff they have done is totally based off whatever religion they claimed to be part of.


Remember the "holy" crusades? We destroyed civilizations, and ruined possible archeological artifacts. Remember the witch hunts ? They butchered many many people for no good reason.

Hereign lies the problem, we cant just "abolish" religion, too many people are religious. But we can try and raise the human literacy rate as close to 100% as we can, im willing to bet if people had a more overall view of history and our relations to each other they will realize the obselence (is that a word? hah) of religion. I dont want to go off on a tangent here about it though. And i have no interest in a battle of wits with any religious folks, because if they are religious let them believe what they want, but the only thing I ask, if they are going to preach to kids, let the non religious folks preach to kids too.

that's simply not true.

do you really think the end of religion would mean the end of violence?

the very idea is nothing sort of delusional.

There will never be peace in our world. Why ? Is it the people, a region ? a religion ? No the world is far from getting better. I am not sure who said this but where the heck do they live ? And what do they do and read to assume this ? We have more crime now than the world has ever seen with all the years added together.

We have more people in our world with liberal idealogies saying that things that were moraly wrong years ago are now ok ? Decline of scociety.

We have more people teaching tolerance ? Tolerance of what ? Other harmful things coming into our society ? ACLU protecting the criminal.

Watch the news lately ? Crime is up. This means murder, rapes, molestations, What are we doing as a society ? Letting these criminals out too early on good behavior ? Changing the constituion to fit within personal agendas.

Rumors of war ? The war is already here. We are on the edge of a global war. It is very evident in the news that we read around the world today.

Man is sick and evil apart from God. Man will never be able to correct this problem. It's called Free Will ! We all have it and use it everday. But since man is evil this is the way the world is heading.

The only peace that we will see is when Christ Himslef returns and snuffs out the antichrist ! Until then like God said. This world is not His, But Satans. God gave satan dominion of this world till He returns. I would have to say he is doing a pretty good job at corrupting our world, values, morales etc..........

As long as man is in charge using his mind to hide from God we will never see peace !

I continue to pray for us all !

Not the end of violence, but a drastic reduction in violence. there will still be the standard devation, well have murderers, and power hungry dictatorships. But we wont have some guy with a bomb strapped to him sacrificing himself to kill people, and we wont have people spending time and energy promoting a placebo when they could be bettering themselves or learning a new skill.

So basically what you're saying is that it's hopeless for man to ever become united just because, in your opinion, mankind is evil aside from God. I don't believe in God, yet I don't, along with many others who know me, consider myself to be evil. Actually alot of my moral beliefs are based on the Christian religion but I just take a more scientific look at the world. I have free will and I choose to use it in a positive way along with many others in this world who are working towards a more peaceful society.

Religion creates boundaries between people. For example: just because I don't believe in your God then you automatically assume that I'm evil. How can someone whom you consider evil be working to make the world a more peaceful place? I have faith in my fellow man to create peace on Earth rather than wait an unknown amount of time for a God to do it instead.

I would like you to prove that crime now is worse than it was during the Dark Ages, Middle Ages, or Crusades. During those time periods moral standards were well below what they are now. Torture was acceptable, Slavery was common, and overall the way people treated one another was terrible. Plus the world population was much lower than it is today so there's a greater possibility of a person committing a crime out of many who don't.

Sadly there will be no united world until the arriving of Christ. It will only become worse. Far worse. Brother against brother; father against son. Christians will be killed because they keep following Christ and because they dont let themselfes be tagged by the beast.

Mark 13
Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child. Children will rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death. You will be hated by all men for my name’s sake, but he who endures to the end, the same will be saved.

We had a relative peaceful time. Recently (

No, not much worse than Srebrenica, Hanoi, Dresden, Auswitch or Hiroshima. Maybe the recent Amsterdam is.

The thing is that the (second) coming of Jesus on Judgement day will unite the world and all the tribes will ‘mourn’ and recognize that it’s the Christ. Even Hindu's, Papua's, etc will understand what is going on. Their human and not stupid.
- Jews will suddenly understand what they have done by rejecting and cruisifing the Christ Jesus
- Muslims know Jesus as a great prophet and from then on they will understand the meaning ‘son of man’ or ‘son of God’ and the relation Jews/Christians and Muslims have. Allah = God but a lot of muslims are distracted from the true message of Gods love. (and so are a lot of western people who claim they are Christians).

There will be no time fore carbombing anymore
Evil is ended and wil be judged. Evil will be banned from the present of the living God. An eternity in the big nothing, kicked out of Gods creation and anything to do with it: no light, no air, no water, no earth, no body, no food, no company, no love, no joy, only lonlyness, sadness and grif but not able to die... for ever. Ateists and people who know but rejected Christ are getting what they always wanted....Lights out!!

Your question of: What whould the Cristian God do with people who did never hear or understand the word of Christ (Maya’s, Inca’s, Papua’s, etc) is verry interesting

To be honest, I don’t know. Its in His hand and all people will be judged by their actions. I’m sure God will do the right thing. There is not much said about people who lived their life and never got an opportunity to chose or reject Christ. The Roman letters are talking about that all people get judged by their own conscious. The 10-commandments are programmed in everybody’s hart even if you never heart the 10-commandments. Even -accepted in some cultures- every human beeing (Papua, Sikh, Muslim or Reiki teacher) knows that killing, lying, adultery, gossiping and stealing is wrong. My God is a righteous God and so will be His judgement over someone who never heart of Jesus but acted according their own conscious.

Exodus 20
God spoke all these words, saying, “I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
1) You shall have no other gods before me.
2) “You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me, and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
3) “You shall not take the name of Yahweh your God in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
4) “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.You shall labor six days, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your man-servant, nor your maid-servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates; for in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.
5) “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your God gives you.
6) “You shall not murder.
7) “You shall not commit adultery.
8) “You shall not steal.
9) “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
10) “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

I think it will take something very drastic and deadly to unite the world as one. Now will this be achived during our time? I cannot answer that question but would'nt it be nice?

uniting people via religion is going to be catastrophic because there will be elements that dont agree, and their "God" will make them kill the other elements. Have you guys seen the pharmacratic inquisition?

www.pharmacratic-inquisition.com...


its a little whacky but it gets the point accross. religions are all fabrications, but they did have a purpose at one time, and thats the pursuit of honor and respect among your fellow humans, that idealism is lost on reality though, because people use religion for all sorts of silly things.

without going too off topic here, religions are holding us back right now. and thats only a 65 meg download shouldnt be too painful to grab ;o
