It's not really "Christian values" lol... People were just stupid back then, and still are! How do you think people will look at us in 100-1,000
years?? Those people back then, and most today, were and are, NOT practicing Christianity. If Christianity hadn't been around, they would've just
used something else to control the masses...
Like superstitions "being lefthanded is BAD LUCK for us all! Kill him!!!!" or pseudo science... "Our super accurate studies show that left handed
people are dragging society down as a whole, we have to adapt everything for them even though they make up such a small percentage of our population,
so our society will collapse unless we KILL THEM!!!!!
Or if sports was the most important thing back then and was the basis of society... "These left handed people are confusing us right handers! They
throw, swing a bat, and everything.BACKWARDS!!! And they are causing us to lose games! KILL THEM!!!!!
Greedy, evil, powerful people would use whatever they could to control the ignorant masses... They could take something that is good, or neutral, and
twist it around into something oppressive and destructive.
Just because they claim to be christian, doesn't mean squat. Its called the narrow path for a reason. Not many people are capable of the level of
kindness, tolerance, and humility needed, let alone the love for all of mankind required. Its really quite annoying, but all I can do Is hope more
people find the true way...of whatever belief system they follow. People are notorious for proudly labeling themselves as something and then not
adhering to the true meaning of it.
It's even worse when they smear the reputation of the belief system they join, or in some cases, infiltrate, or take over. It's kinda like if I go
to your neighborhood and sell drugs to all the kids and expose myself and throw empty beer cans in peoples yards, and tell everybody I'm a part of
your family and point at your house and tell them that's where I live and where I learned my behavior. Or if I go on a killing spree and then tell
everyone I'm a Free Mason and they taught me to do this. Or take a dump on the hood of your car and then from you that your neighbor paid me to do
it, or put a gun to my head and made me do it, whichever example works best: THAT'S what people do to religion and also many other organizations.
Besides... Listen to what you're saying... So, if we were 1,000 years advanced in technology, we would have more than an atomic bomb, we would have
the super ultimate planet killing bomb... We as a people need to advance spiritually before we get any further technologically...
Look how poorly we've misused technology so far... If we didn't have all this technology then sure, people would not live as long. They would die
from simple diseases. 1 out of every 2 or 3 births would be dead or die within a week, maybe more...
But...... The possibility of one single country bringing a nuclear winter to the entire earth would NOT exist. ONE, LONE MADMAN would not be able to
release a dirty bomb, virus, or chemical weapon in a crowded area and kill and injure tens, hundreds, or thousands of people.
Honestly, if I had the choice, I personally wouýo the way things were... But that's not because its "better" now. It's because I'm a curious
bastard who enjoys the level of knowledge we have today. We still don't know ish but we know more than we did.
I'm just saying... 1,000 years ahead in the realm of technology SOUNDS cool... But it all depends on WHO CONTROLS this technology and what they do
with it. You wonder why they don't release free unlimited energy? Do you know what ONE demented person could do with unlimited energy??? Like one of
those people who plague this Earth who THINK they are Christian, but they really aren't anything close to it?
