War is Hell on Mother Earth

    Since religion works hand and hand with world politics and tools militarily. Is it a central belief amongst the religion that nature was created by God and for an example the Bible as presenting human dominance over nature? Are the attitudes not regarding nature as a central importance, among our historical cultures. We are crippling ourselves by War budgets over poverty budget. In North America a CEO in the 1970s made 25 times more than the average person wage, today its 350 times greater.

    Both my daughter and I as artists and deeply care for future generations. Not so long ago, half my art business was in the USA. One project I refused a war project for GW Bush, based on my ground rule of not to harm or promote harm. Since then, the USA refused all my work permits into the USA. Are humans considered superior to other forms of life based on how we treat the environment by human carelessness and greed?  Iraq since 1970s has become an environmental cesspool as other environmental crisis now encompasses the entire Earth.
    Not one Iraqi person has been known to attack an American on USA soil. Yet Iraq claims 900,000 have been killed on their soil. USA has half the military budget of the world combined. USA combined with Russia has 90% of the Nuke war heads in the world. Making the greatest threat to mankind is nuclear war and natural environment crises.

    Will capitalist production be first over nature always? Wail the rich and media prefer war, wail most people do not?

    OR

    Will human being, environmental organism on earth be a distance second priority?
    Will our planet turn into a one big ball of burning crap allowed by our own hands?

      I think it's the short snappy questions that get the big discussions in forumland.

        Maybe too grand a topic for most, also?

            The Apocalypse has already begun. No one expected this to be the way. Need Proof? I KNOW this, not just believe it.

              I study large events where they are coming from and where they are going. It helps being with the movers and shaker in their circles.

              I watch for self prophecy and will be ready with a shield.

    "Will our planet turn into a one big ball of burning crap allowed by our own hands?"

    I think you nailed it right here.
    If you want to know how it ends, rear Revelation. (Last book of the Bible).

    It covers it all in quite some detail.

    The apostle Peter stated that the earth will burn up with "fervent heat".

    And, for those who care to be around, they will see God create a NEW Heaven and a NEW Earth.
    I guess that implies we stuffed the old one. sad

      This presentation is the deepest downside of mankind I can think of. Yet, have much more optimism and faith in my fellow man and think this topic will sling shot to a greater upside. Governments have protected every known evil to mankind. In world history. It’s been 80% of the consciousness of the people who have made changes of our abused planet. My intuition tell me it will take over 100 million deaths in one big event greater than the 2nd World War that will change the consciousness of man. Religion will shrink and man will slowly move and change toward a spiritual age. I can not imagine an exclusive fight club group who claims they have the correct answer to an angry, picky, and jealous God

        Just because the messenger is a stutterer, and one arm is shorter than the other, needs a bath, doesn't seem to have a good memory, doesn't mean that you should disregard that message that he was delivering from the IRS.
           
        (no disrespect to stutterers or people with one arm shorter than the other, or anyone else just) just making a point.
           
           To disregard the existence of God cause you do not believe that the people that say they are representing him really are
        may be an incomplete thought process.

          God is like a bike wheel, there many spokes to the centre, as there is ways to God.

          Dose anyone really have the correct answer, or is it, what ever works for our selves?

            Who said God is like a bike wheel?
            Sure wasn't Him.
            He's a lot more than a wheel could ever describe Him as.

              Jesus is your one and only way to God and came with a sword. Matthew 10:34: Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. ... But to bring a sword...

              Yet most of the world population has many other ways to God. Your God has wars greater than any other god group over their way to God. The most effective way to kill them is to think of them as sub human or demon to prove it, in the name of your god.

              For my God is better than your God. Men with toys, or are they really boys. For is much braver not to kill as wars solves nothing.
              Is this true?

                Jesus it the only way.

                Deal with it!

                You may not like it, but that's the way it is.

                  Most of the world is dealing with God in different ways.

                  Most of the world is not aware of Jesus, how do they deal with it?
                  I deal with God with good sense, and find no reason for war, for it good for nothing.Most are dealing with it.

                  I find Jesus fine, just the translations are wrong. It’s just your preferred way to God. Do you think most American are Christ like?

            You may have a point? about the wheel thing .. 
               But you gotta be on the outer circle to have that strait line to the hub
                 And ...  Have ya ever heard the expression ...
               Ya can't get there from here!   Ya gotta go over there first. And then you can.

              How do you know if you have not  been totally brainwash when you get there? Or how do know if the group your with has the correct answer to get in to heaven, wail most of everyone else in the world is going to hell?

              Love and kindness are the only answers that drive me.
