    We should be glad that they are like monkeys over there - they don't know what a computer is. Their laws are like the ones we had thousands of years ago,
    Their laws may be old and they may be not so up-to-date with technology but fanaticism is a very dangerous thing as we have seen. We can see to what lengths these people will go to for their beliefs.
    after a while all the people who lives there gets brainwashed,
    The indoctrination goes on and there's not a lot we can do about it. You can't stamp out these things completely.

    In the long run, the world would be a better place without some people.
    Indeed. Dangerous people in high places have caused a lot of trouble in the past.

    You are a female, PenDragon, right?

    Anyway, the end of the world would be a great thing in the long run. I mean, most people are probably more negative than positive in average, many people are too smart to be happy nowdays. They can see their life for what it is: Some pointless temporary nonsense. We are all going to die, it's not very important when it happens.

    The funny thing is: When you die, you won't care about it, lets say somebody sneaked up behind and put a bullet in your head all of a sudden. You would just die, everything would disappear, all fear, all hope, all your feelings. What's so bad about that? The people who knew the dead person is the only problem, they will feel bad about it, but that's their own fault.

    Only people can define what's wrong, right, good and bad etc. In the real world there are no such definitions. The destruction of earth is the cure for all the bad things (and good things) we have defined. It will be like NULL everywhere without all those error prone definitions! Blow it up, bin Laden.

    So, without life here on earth there will be no more tears, there will be no more pain. And there will be no more damn whining. The end of the world is no bad thing for mankind, it's good.

    I'm a bin Laden fan. He might start the final war, the holy war, in God's name.

    I don't think that too many people feel that their lives are pointless. Some young adults are affected by depression until they learn how to control it. This might make a person feel like their life is pointless, that is, until they discover that they can do something about it.

    Have you ever seen a religious fundamentalist? It doesn't matter what religion they are all the same. It's not a good idea to give them weapons.

    The reason Bin Laden has to die is because he is a criminal. He has mislead many people, especially young people. Most of the world wants a better life for everyone that does not involve hate. Most of the world is more interested in education, health and personal freedom. That will be the future of countries like Afghanistan if you give their people conditions for this to happen. At this point there is no hope in finding this with the Taliban.

    I don't think of myself as crazy, I think of myself as a person who thinks different. Can I ask, do you seriously see yourself as crazy, or different?

    Yes, negativity and depression will also fade and die - just like everything else. NULL is the truth, it's everything, I'm almost a Buddhist.

    You're an extremist in my eyes. I think the world is going towards being NULL, that's it. All opinions about how the world should look like always leads to conflicts - even if those concepts are good in your opinion, there will always be people who see it another way. It's about drawing lines, and setting up rules. Lets say we have enough resources to build one hospital, but where? This could lead to conflicts, even if there is nothing negative about building an hospital. People live and feel, that's what causes good and bad to exist. We need to evolv for a few additional thousands years before each individual human (or maybe I should say life-form) can be free, perfect, and not unhappy/happy.

    We evolved feelings only because it was the best way for us to advance and survive, who knows, they might just be one temporary step in the evolution.

    Still, I feel like the final goal is not trying to create a world where everything is as good as possible according to our emotions. We always need to see negativity if we want to see positivity anyway. So Nirvana is my goal.

    You'll never see this, and, to boot, your hospital will never get
    built.

    First off you the hospatil were it is the most needed. Second the day I have no feelings is the day I die. I am already perfect, and I still have fellings. I also don't care what others think since it means nothing. Resond as you wish.

    hmm, religion to blame, havent read all the last posts, but here is my view, if you believe that religion is the cause of all the worlds problems, go to hell lol.


    "Yes, it's that simple. Drop the religious plauge and we can have a better world. If you want to read the bible than go ahead but treat it as literature, and shut up about it."

    lol this is the most pathetic thing I have EVER heard.
    look at the 2 biggest mass-genocides EVER.
    Hitler killed jews because they were jews, not because they believed in God. he also killed gypsies, the handikapped, and muslims.
    Stalin killed everybody that was relgious or not regardless.


    money and power have been the main reason for struggle in the world, communism tried to get rid of it along with religion and look how successfull that was.

    I could say that since I am Christian, my views may be biased.


    oh and another thing, Christianity DOES NOT say you will go to hell if you dont believe in it. it just says that if you are truly evil that you will go to hell and I quote from the profecys of John in Revelation "Sorcerers, false profits, and murders will be cast into the pit of fire for eternity" . of course Jesus died for sins like this and if you fall into one of these categorys then you will go to Heaven only if you repent. this is the same as saying sorry, so dont take religion wrong, it is a book of morale law.


    Darwins survival of the fitest says that it will be easier for a genes to surivive if their is less competition. I could make an argument that evolution seperates people, but I wont because I know that it doesnt.

    oh, and if evolution is true humans will continuely devolve into nothingness.

    "We evolved feelings only because it was the best way for us to advance and survive, who knows, they might just be one temporary step in the evolution. "

    actually, many feelings are useless to humans, and if evolution is true they should be dead to us like our appendixes.

    I was quite surprised to read that recently, but
    looking at the population numbers, it's logical:

    Chinese mass killings took more lives than
    Hitler and Stalin combined.

    The fact is still that war is always about power,
    money and land. Never about believes, although
    it's easy to say so because you don't have to
    justify it this way.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Rather disturbing that whenever someone brings up mass murders, someone can always top it with something else... (And I say to myself... what a wonderful world...)

    hmm, never heard of the chinese mass genocides, when did these occur, after or before Anti- religious communism swept the country?

    Sorry to pick on this a little late but I haven't been able to post for a bit.

    I'm curious no-one... The fact that you picked up on my being female had something to do with how I expressed my answer or how it was perceived by you??
