its not that I believe, its that I for a fact know that there are MANY MANY options to try and make the world better, safer, etc.
thats my point, all this green hysteria has drowned out the voice of reason and sanity.
in hungarian there is a saying, loosely translated as:
man(kind) debate and debate away, and with faith have faith.
what it means to me is this: we have gotta try. especially if there are better ways. giving up is against nature, against humanity.
so its not so much that I am an optimist or that I believe in anything, its simply, that we as humans should try. when did we stop trying? when did we
and yes, although it sounds very new age, all change begins with you. if you make amendments to your life (and I am not saying what to do), you have
done all that you could in your space and time.
its up to you. and I am not talking about recycling here.
as for jesus, I tend to agree, but its not even that. if people just followed the 1o commandments, the world would be better.
after all, it says it right there: do not lie and bear false witness.
unfortunatley in this day and age, everything is dumbed down, and dualized.
what happened to science actually embracing all possibilities and actually admitting past faults?
when did science become a religion?
when did science become politics?
when did we start suppressing those, who ASKED questions?
this is so wrong.
and this we can change, by changing ourselves and our thinking.
"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful" Seneca
if we the people demand proof and real options and access to all views, then is may just happen.
Isn't this what skepticism is about?
Right now this climate change is a perfect example, of all other option (legitimate ones too) being suppressed, and made into fools.
Perhaps the money, the greed?
All frowned upon by jesus too.
I think fault lies with the thinking. Dualistic thinking creates as atmosphere were what I don't take, someone else will, so better to squash them.
But let me ask you this: if your cloths don't fit you any more, do you deny that they don't fit, or do you get new cloths?
Our current thinking has lead to endless wars, rape of the earth, destruction, racism, psychotic disease, other disease, disintegrating society,,,,
Go for the jugular. All this lies with bad thinking habits. ALL OF IT!
