I think the biggest problem with the world is a loss in common sense i mean there are so many idiotic things that go on everyday it's just mind numbing. Everyone know that oil is not entirely bad but we should be on cleaner energy but instead of taking a look at some of the thing we can do to wean us off of oil we gather in the millions to root for NASCAR now i understand it's fun to watch guys taking left turns at 200 mph for hours but can anyone see how much of a waste of gas it is?
and with millions of people starving across the world what do we do we send 50 cents a month to feed them while watching cooking matches on FOOD NETWORK where they waste so much food in order to feed 4 people!! now I'm now rocket scientist but I'm pretty sure we can feed a whole lot of people with what we waste.
and when you turn to religion what do you get now I'm not closed minded about religion everyone has the right to believe in what they want but my biggest problem is that people say they believe in a certain religion and then daily go against it. I personally believe that everyone is right but that we fill in so many blanks that we can never know to make us feel better.
I mean what's more realistic that an intelligent being made the universe and then sat back and just watched everything or that the same being sent his son to die for one species on one planet or that he has a special spot in his heart for us the whole concept of religion is one egotistical story to make us feel special and why we are special without god what other animal on this planet is like us to have thoughts I mean come on why are we all looking out there for answers when here we have things we still don't know I am all for going to space and searching planets for life and i know that there is life out there the universe is too big to not have it everywhere.
My last point about religion is that according to the bible you are not supposed to judge anyone it's not your job it's gods job but yet everyday people do it and your not supposed to worship anything else but god yet they all worship money yet what does it all go to the vatican sits on millions and millions of dollars yet there are still people starving everyday that's not what god would want out of his followers. Now saying that I know that there are people that do all the stuff I said the most of religious people don't and to those people i say thank you we need to stop looking at everything that makes us different and start seeing that we are all the same.
i personally have no clue how or species will end or what will happen in the future all i know is that until we get common sense back we will not evolve in the future. I hope that you will read this post and think about what I'm saying i can be wrong but as long as your thinking and have your own thoughts about it i will be happy all i want is for everyone to use their brains that's what its there for any topics that anyone would like to discuss just hit me up and I am eager to read what everyone thinks
Thank you for you time
