It has become essentially a method for people to pretend they are God and the whole universe is their creation. It's the highest form of Narcissism possible, there is no arrogance higher than this.
I personally am disgusted by any person who believes in this type of selfish self-centered excuse.
It's just a way for them to sleep at night after they commit acts against other people. Justification for anything they ever do wrong.
Hey to those who believe in this garbage, than WHY DID YOU CREATE ME TO SAY THIS????

I just hate seeing people die. Life is pain. Without pain it would just be a game.
Just so much suffering out there. Too much. I can only conclude that life is pain.
Overcoming fear of death and not fearing pain is i tink the only true way to live.
There really isn't any other option... if you want to LIVE.
Pain and death have to be seen as good things somehow. Welcome things.edit on 16-9-2011 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)

Your reply has truth to it but then at the same time it is flawed. No one can ever teach or tell someone knowledge/wisdom. I can show you but it is up to the individual person in the end to be able to grasp the concept from their experience.
A lot of people on here will hate me for this because the mind in closed to new ways. (Old ways that have been distorted)
If I need to hold your hand over the internet to teach you how life works...well then you are never going to see the Light in this lifetime.
Take responsibility for your thoughts because they will manifest into reality. That is what I am saying.

If you believe there is something wrong with the world, then there will be.
What are perceived as "problems" may also be viewed as processes not seen or understood from a big enough perspective.
A decision is just that... A decision. Your particular course of action is merely a category anatomized by frame rate. If you remain asleep, your opportunity to glean substance is severely limited to the pool of drool on your pillow case.
Moreover, you wouldn't have much experience to teach your offspring...
Assuming someone is willing to screw your lifeless body in the first place.

This theory is like the bible and all the other religious books and teachings. A guideline for people to be nice to one another. I don't need a story to know I should treat people nicely. Every time I read this theory its all the same, no new information. Which is what I was trying to point out. If anyone has new information on this topic I would love to see it.
If you want your children/future children to grow up thinking they must show kindness to rapists, tyrants, murderers, kidnappers, psychopaths and the like: that is your own choice. I would think that you'd be smarter than to encourage your children to embrace such walks of life as "a part of themselves".
