"The mark of the beast is a rumour, a myth, to hide its real nature. Its real nature being the mark of exclusion.
People are cruel, and hurtful and if they think you are gifted or "special" they intentionally try to hurt you.
We need to to avoid that if we can.
I don't wish to be an enemy combatant in a war waged by ignorance. I gravitate towards spirtually open people. I avoid those devoid of the capacity to embrace the possibility of differences and the tolerance to explore them."
What do you peoples think, appears to be some wisdom in these words?

What kind of wisdom is that, sounds similar to many of the others.

try giving a mass murderer a hug and see what it gets you.
hippies... send them all to war and there would be no more war? Or just a lot less hippies..
There are EVIL people in the world. Not because god said so or because the devil said so, because .. Why not? Fire burns. You can't kiss it. It will burn you. Bad people will steal your last breath if they are able to.
What do you want? A world full of puppies? It will mean someone will make puppy pies. Simple. No cute little puppy dog pies either, machine ground up puppy. And kitten souffles.
Children steal hand bags from old ladies. Bash old men with bats.
Hippies.. what are they doing beside having a cry about the way things are to protect us from the bad people. Get out there and do something then... or accept the world as it is. Full of bad and evil things. Waiting for opportunity to take your stuff.
only thing worse than hippies are people who think the government is behind all the bad people. The government is crooked as a coathanger that the thief uses to nick your car. But bad people exist regardless.
666... religion... hippies.. crooks.. what do you want???
bury your heads.. it wont save the world but you'll probably go to heaven quicker.
Master card? 'Coin' combines debit, credit and others into one

The Coin card is no larger than an ordinary credit card.
If you've ever been frustrated by the number of cards you have to carry on you at all times, from personal debit to work credit to gift and loyalty cards, this high-tech new mega-card might be for you. It's called Coin, and it works with your smartphone to combine all your cards into one.
Coin works by keeping the magnetic information for each card in its memory, and rewriting its own magnetic stripe to imitate whichever you choose. You get the card data in there by swiping it through a little dongle for your phone.
You can toggle between up to eight cards with a button on the card itself (carefully designed so it can't be hit on accident), and switch out expired or used-up cards using the app. For credit rewards hounds, gift card aficionados or anyone who just finds their wallet is too bulky, this could be a great way to simplify things and save space.
It works in ATMs, gas station machines and basically anywhere your normal card works. And don't worry, it's not going to tick off your bank — they won't even notice, for one thing, and Coin checked ahead of time to make sure this whole process is legal and approved.
The card even has a built-in Bluetooth low-power chip, and will alert you on your phone if you've left it behind at a restaurant or if it's gone too long without detecting the phone's presence. That sounds useful, but it has a serious problem: If your phone dies, so does your card.
