Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

...what humanity is doing to itself as well as the planet shouldn't even be called "survival instinct" - it is simply misguided egoistic action which will actually lead to the opposite of survival. Furthermore, most of what human kind is doing is not instinctual at all, it is based on egoistic cond...

Re: DIVERSITY IS AMERICA'S GREATEST STRENGTH

No, I didn't suggest "real men" were God-like entities "with a penis", my dear. Rather,I would define a real man as a man who has a clear, intuitive understanding that all normal women want men to take charge in a heterosexual relationship. A "real man" is a man who possesses an innate, pre-rationa...

Re: What is the Greatest Pro of Theism?

Feeling bigger and better than your "small" self: feeling empowered and "good". Funny thing... I of course believe you feel that way, no arguments here. But for me to have a bigger and better something out there gives me the feeling of even more dwarfed than otherwise. I totally get what you're say...

Perhaps the greater problem for communication than the inadequacies of our language is our intent.
I agree! I try to draw attention to this, as I think some people don't even realize how twisted their intent actually is. 8) And I find that fascinating... as well as kind of fun to play with.

Re: Revolution in Thought

No no no, you can't use the same BS over and over again, without you lifting a finger to actually read the text. What are you afraid of? No true scientific investigator would judge my history online (what a joke) as proof that I have nothing to offer. If you look back in history, it's the same old ...

Re: DIVERSITY IS AMERICA'S GREATEST STRENGTH

...even if we possess wisdom, when we want to share it with other beings and help them, it’s not so easy to do so. We need to be patient, creative, and compassionate so they will be able to hear, accept, and act on what we have to share. Is this what you do? Does environment play a role? Is there a...

Re: Revolution in Thought

It's so very sad... Your interaction here is all about what you want...yes? What you think other people should do, and what you think other people should care about and see value in...yes? You think your expectations are reasonable to ask of people who have other things that are much more compellin...

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

I think there could be some languages that don't require words... like love. People (and other forms of life) can often feel it even if nothing is said... and even if they speak different verbal languages. So that could be considered a type of universal language. As for evolving toward a universal l...

Re: Revolution in Thought

This is why my introduction was long-winded. Look at your opening post. There is nothing long-winded or descriptive about it. It was only after people pressed you to explain why you started this thread, that you provided a link to an unrealistic amount of information for people to wade through. whe...

Re: DIVERSITY IS AMERICA'S GREATEST STRENGTH

Age... no offense (truly), but to me it sounds like what you're saying is spinning around in your head (like a mind game to protect your ego), and I can't go there with you. By the way do you really feel that much better within your own self when you TRY TO humiliate "others"? Is that how it feels t...

I hope we can come together in truth to make this world a better place in which to live. I live in the same world that you do, peacegirl. I do not wish for people to suffer. I see the worst and the best that people are capable of and compelled by. I've learned that my ideas about "fixing" things ar...

Re: Revolution in Thought

Come on Lacewing, why do most people hope and pray for our deliverance from evil (or hurt) between man and man if not because they want a world in which there is no killing? Are you going to tell me that if you had two choices, a world of peace and brotherhood or a world of war and conflict, you wo...

Re: Revolution in Thought

What prevents someone from building a bomb and blowing up an airplane or hacking a bank and stealing millions of dollars is because he won't have the necessary justification to do so. Do you think there's a RIGHT way for the world to be? And that it is WRONG now? How do you know? Might you have a l...
