Where would the world be without mankind? Would it be better with or without us? I say better without!
We have been a country for 246 years, having survived through war after war. Some of them I can understand, some of them I can't. But regardless, we have killed many millions of our fellow humans in the name of war, for whatever reasons.
Why do we do this? Is it built into our DNA? Do we enjoy it, or do we simply fight over beliefs, beliefs that belomg in the dark ages. Why do we not learn? Why are we so weak minded that we cannot see what we are doing to others, others we know not? I am an atheist, for the simple reason that religious teachings are the scourge of the earth and not to be believed.
How many different religions exist on this planet, supposedly all teaching some form of theism which their given group believes?
I believe this because man is basically the weakest animal on the earth, and we will pay for it someday as we go into extinction because of our weaknesses. We need weapons to protect ourselves from nature, because we haven't the ability to reason out what is natural and how to live among it. Our worst enemy is greed and gluttony. Nothing ever seems to be enough, thereby causing friction among those with and those without. We won't stop it, it will stop us.
I don't think anyone really knows how we came to be, but then again all living things came to be somehow. I believe we evolved from the large apes of Africa, because creationism makes no sense. We evolve every generation from the last one. Why is that so hard to understand? Look around, it's right in front of your eyes.
Do you think that anyone "chooses" to be born who or what they are? Did you?
Did you choose to born gay or black or Asian or any group you wish to name? No, you were conceived of and egg and a sperm and they determined who you are, nothing else. Your life from birth determines the person you are during your life! Be the best that you can be, overcome your biases, live a happy life, and hope that you still have time, because if we don't change, we are doomed to extinction.
Have a great day and may peace be with you.
