I saw a question on Yahoo! Answers today. The person asked: "Why does society value celebrities and lawyers more than scientists or engineers?"
does society value celebrities and lawyers more than scientists or engineers?"
I thought this was a good question. So I answered.
Simple, because its interesting to them, unlike science and technology. People today are very ignorant.
They lack understanding of how and why things work. They are not going to be interested in space, nature, health, technology, nature. Heck, they would
not care if ETs came down! They only care about the latest scandal, the new guy on shows like American Idol etc., and they only care about
We need to learn, gain knowledge of what is around us. If we do that, we can all see that there is no purpose in seeing such celebrities. If people
were wise enough, they would be interested in such milestones, but that is not the case.
This is the same with religion. It isn't the idea whether there is a god or not. I mean it went from something that sounded amazing, to just another
debate, that sounds more political than spiritual! The question we should all be asking is "Where is the Spirituality? Where is the love in the
world?" My friend, the spirituality, and love is being lost, and it is not by the government. It is not by the Mainstream media. It is not by the
show hosts, or the singers, or actors out there. We are losing it by Ignorance, and we are letting it take us over...
Now I am not Christian (but am not an Atheist), I have heard a saying before.
"The road to Hell is paved with good things." No matter what your belief is, this does have a meaning, literal or not, and its true, that if we do
not change, are future is not going to look good.
We forget that there is topics to think about. There is subjects that need to be question. There is a world out there that is begging to be
discovered! We need to let go of what is not important. We need to ignore the indoctrination given to us in schools today, and question the people who
talk about such fallacies, and not be too trusting because someone famous says such lies without any evidence of so! We need to make Common Sense
This is what I hate most. When people are willingly unable to question the world around them. Hopefully my answer will be the best answer. What do you
think about what I said?
