If everybody converted to corpsism, then there'd be peace on Earth.
Well. Except for all the nasty killing and biting and struggling in the animal kingdom...
So, they'd have to be converted to corpses too.
Then there'd be peace on Earth.
Until the plants start moving around fighting one another.
So, better kill them too.
Better just sterilize the whole universe just to be safe.
The, peace at last.

It look's like life treat's you right. Usually people who didn't suffer or experienced bad things speaks about good. Do you tip homeless people?
So is the over all population of the world homeless? Remember there are apx 6 billion people in the world, to determine that mostly all humans suffer, are homeless or have a shitty lifes, or commit crimes, or we are generally bad, would have to be a majority of the world population living under these circumstances. To postulate that Baron's statement is accurate "That's true. But the actual, tiny bit of "good" in the world is consistently overwhelmed by the "bad".
It would mean that most of the world citizens are living under these conditions, so since apparently that does not seem to be the case, his statement, and your query to postulate that is factual, are illogical. By mere observation.
Those numbers shown of these situation that you brought about, have to take in account the 6 billion citizens of the world. hence 12 million people is barely scratching the surface of the world's population. don't get me wrong, I Know lots of people suffer, and have shitty lives, but it's not "overwhelmingly" bad as Baron's claims them to be, that would mean that over 2billion people are living under these conditions, that does not seem to be the case now does it?

I' we been homeless to and it was not my fault to be there. I believe many of them are victims of greed or bad luck.

If the Muslim nations would stop hassling Israel, and if Islamists would stop trying to take over the world by force, and if religious freedom were granted all over the world, then things would get better.
01-16-07, 01:13 PM #47Is there any good path to begin the journey on? Is there anything that we can do today that will make the world better in the future? Or is it all just hopeless?
I think if you take a critical look at the past, and how the world functions today, we are way better off, then in the middle ages, or the dark ages, are we not? So basically we will come to a choices as a human species some day! Will we self destruct for differences in religious idealogies, or make compromises? Will we rather work together and solve the world's energy crisis, or shall we just inaliate weaker nations? Will reason ever prevail above superstition and greed?
The tools to achieve world peace are in place. Our reason need to be coherent in one ideology, the survival of the human species, untill then, it will just be one superior clan over the other!

So, Godless, you're into not tolerating "religious nonsense?" That's what the Soviet Union was all about, why don't you move to China, they don't tolerate much "religious nonsense," like you, so maybe you can become the head of the Committee to Expunge Relgious Nonsense, and by the way, please define "religious nonsense."

I am the Lord your God
You shall have no other gods before Me
You shall not make for yourself an idol
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God
Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy
Honor your father and your mother
You shall not murder
You shall not commit adultery
You shall not steal
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife
You shall not covet your neighbor's house...
Something like this, with new prospective and understandings.

The correct translation is thou shalt not murder.

In my fate, I will go with eye for an eye. Well I will have a court to decide.

Med Woman, if you don't know the difference between murdering someone and killing someone because he/she is trying to murder you, then I don't know what to tell you.

So it's thou shalt not murder, not thou shalt not kill, thank you.
