In the beginning there was...the beginning? Creationism or Evolution?
Clean up your room!
Humans sure are trashy!
Humans account for most of the pollution of our planet. Some pollution does come from natural causes like volcanoes, but humans are the ones known for contaminating the very places that they live in.
Just knowing that there is a GROWING pile of trash in the Pacific that is twice the size of Texas is enough to make me want to scream - CLEAN UP YOUR PLANET!
What are you going to do about it? Sit there and argue about whose bible is the correct one? Did Darwin become an Atheist? Who the freak cares?
Let's try buying stuff in cardboard or recyclable containers. Take cloth bags to the grocery store to carry groceries home in. Reduce your personal waste and look for things to do to clean up the world. Do some research on environmental waste and figure out how you can help the most.
I personally try to reduce medical waste at my job. I encourage others to be more responsible and stop throwing perfectly good stuff away. Our surgery department sends sterilized and used surgical equipment to be used again in research or veterinary surgeries.
I buy a car and keep it until I can't drive it anymore instead of buying a new one every couple of years. I take care of it as long as I can. I keep it clean and serviced regularly.
I don't spend my time wondering where trash comes from. I realize it's HERE NOW! I need to do something about it. All of us working together could solve the trash problems. I know we can.
Life the Universe and Everything
Why all this hoopla about a "Beginning"
How does it matter how we got here on this planet? We ARE here, that's a fact that no one can argue with. Well, maybe some of those existential types that suppose we are really inside a universe that is contained in someone's fingernail and they use us to pick their noses.
Arguing about when and where we came from really gets us nowhere. It's all been said, it's all been documented, it's all been picked apart and reassembled until I just want to puke. Neither side - either Creationists or Evolutionists know the real truth and why the hell does it matter to the big floating trash pile now growing in the Pacific? Or the Christian Scientists dying for lack of medical treatment?
Figuring out where we came from is a big fat waste of time! Is someone going to throw a party when the issue is finally settled? Will we be alive to see that? Heck no!
If we took all the time we've been wasting on this and other meaningless arguments, think what we could accomplish!
What about wars?
Who won what war when? How many died? What did the war accomplish? Hating is hating no matter how you dress it. Why would anyone spend so much time hating another human being enough to go kill them and their families and their dogs and cows and goats.
Crap, just trying to survive in your own country should be taking up most of your time! If you don't like the country you were born in, then make it better! Do what you can to stop the killing, fighting, poverty, abuse, misunderstandings and arguments. Don't expect some invisible deity to solve your problems. You got two hands and a brain, use them!
Refuse to kill others. Maybe someday they will return the favor.
A better golden rule...
If it's broke - fix it. If it isn't broke, don't fix it.
K.I.S.S - Keep it simple & even more simple
Live, Laugh, Love
Stop and smell the damn flowers!
Good fences make good neighbors. You live on your side and I'll live on mine, how's that?
Be kind! (that pretty much sums it up)
Stop trying to interpret things.
Don't be jealous.
Don't be disrespectful or destructive
Keep your promises
Smell the Flowers!
Do you need proof?
- 100 Years Left
Every day billions of humans go about their daily lives- some in poverty, political turmoil and war and in other places - eating, sleeping, working and worrying about mortgages, love affairs, kids, skin...
Is Everything All Right?
Will we survive as a species?
