Ok this will take into account gods and anything to do with deities from a supernatural point of reference.
The bottom line is this; to this day there has not been one single good piece of verifiable evidence to support any of these beliefs and yet we still keep clinging on to this nonsense. I could be respectful and say I really have no way of disproving your god but to be honest I don’t have to, you have to prove it if you believe. If you can’t, keep it to yourself and stop trying to push this nonsense on others, it is nonsense because it is probably not true. As a species we have decided that we all have the right to believe in gods and to our religion but this has its limits. When it affects the overall rights of all human then enough is enough.
So long as this practise of believing in and acting on these beliefs that it has permeated our life’s to the point were it is cancerous, a constant source of problems and misery it must be challenged. While good people can do things in the name of their religion they can also do terrible things and all the while the person not the god are doing these acts and this is what must be recognized. We really need to stop this silliness that brings about so much misery. If you want to sit and pretend to yourself go ahead but stop it right there.
It has been proven time and time again that the claims have no merit, no basis in reality and in fact the claims have been well refuted as being true, so stop Ok, grow up, apply some logic, reason and common sense to your life and move on. There really isn’t much more to say as this just needs to stop.
If you saw one of your children continually doing something that was harmful I think you would want them to stop now wouldn’t you. It is simply based on how we determine reality not true and to think otherwise is to just keep fooling yourself.
Occupy Wall Street;
The global movement for change is awesome and this is obviously something that needs to happen. People are fed up and want change. When the people they entrust to do this are not doing their job then they will take matters into their own hands. I salute this effort as long as it remains non violent.
I do however see this only as a step that we must take but not forget to take the next one. I will compare it to a battered wife. Eventually she gets the courage up to leave and then the hard work begins as she has to figure out why she got in the situation in the first place and how she can avoid it from ever happening again. This is where the movement is at. They want to leave the situation but the road after is the crucial part or the situation will keep happening over and over. I so far have not seen anything that will properly address this step in the process. I and others have addressed some of those changes but this must be the focus, to have a plan that will work after you leave the situation.
We really need to get our shit together. We appear to be getting more and more stupid every day. Time to wise up to all the nonsense and garbage we believe in. When we can’t even agree on simple basic concepts we are in huge trouble. I have hope for our species but I see it getting worse before it gets better.
My solution is this. We need to bring a group of people together who actually care about the species and hash out all the problems, no countries, religions, cultures or any other agendas that divide us. We need to sort it all out and present these findings. I just hope that they are truly in the best interest of the species. We then need to listen to these people. Let’s talk it all out but then get to a point of acceptance and not continual disagreement.
We just won’t listen to reason, common sense and logic even though we take advantage of all they have to offer daily we stop when it affects certain parts of our lives. This is the sign of a young arrogant species.
A fool does not learn from mistakes, an idiot keeps doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result but a smart man will continue to learn and grow.
