I know it sounds like a "imaginary" John Lennon dream....

but as we as a race evolve .. is it possible that our evolution will breed a more docile and intelligent society?? ..... the brutality of war just seems to prove the notion that we are no better than the animals in the wild.... I know it will not happen in my lifetime but I think that someday war will be removed from the world....

I think that the religions will dissipate as we evolve and become more intelligent.... not implying that religious people are not intelligent .. I am just saying in 10000 years we may not see the need for religions....

I really can't see us being around in 10,000 years.

We will have to find some way of stopping the transmission of values from parent to child. The values most people have today are pretty messed up.

If you get rid of religions, there will still be wore over land and resources. Conflict -- war -- is part of the human condition.

There will always be enough among us who are willing to use violence to get what they want to spoil it for everybody.

Plus, was is good for business.

I'll assume your stance of nuking Iraq has been altered a tad....


Ahhh .. you remember my posts well grasshopper... my stance is not altered... I am not one of the "evloved" ... but in the big picture I see war as it is today.... and how it might change in the future...

I've read more than a few Science Fiction books that predict...

Man, the most ruthless, bloodthirsty species the universe has ever seen, rapidly expanded throughout the galaxy in a wave of expansion and destruction never witnessed in galactic history. Then, man turned his attention to his neighbor's galaxy.

Only when humans pop out pre programmed will that ever happen. humans always find a way to emulate whats around them.

IMO though, Until we can all become like Vulcans, we will always have war, religion or not.

Ego, pride and lust for power will always get in the way. Our superiority complex will never allow us to truly see others as equals in our class based (on money :covri: ) divided societies. Everything is territorial and divided. The United States for instance. We're united, yet we have lines of division with different. IMO, the idea of "united" hasn't been seen for it's true definition. Language is a major issue too. Too many languages that don't
allow the common folk to communicate. Lack of communication doesn't bring people together either.

I'm not really wanting to do this, but I guess my mind is set. I just didn't want to bring silly lyrics into what should be a rather serious discussion.

----------------------------------------

III. Armageddon: The Battle of Heart and Mind

The universe divided
As the Heart and Mind collided,
With the people left unguided
For so many troubled years.
In a cloud of doubts and fears,
Their world was torn asunder into hollow
Hemispheres.

Some fought themselves, some fought each other,
Most just followed one another
Lost and aimless like their brothers
For their hearts were so unclear
And the truth could not appear
Their spirits were divided into blinded
Hemispheres.

....

Looking down from Olympus
On a world of doubt and fear,
Its surface splintered
Into sorry Hemispheres.

They sat a while in silence,
Then they turned at last to me:
"We will call you Cygnus,
The god of Balance you shall be."

....

We can walk our road together
If our goals are all the same.
We can run alone and free
If we pursue a different aim.
Let the Truth of Love be lighted,
Let the Love of Truth shine clear. Sensibility,
Armed with sense and liberty,
With the Heart and Mind united in a single
Perfect
Sphere.

---------------

And last but not least. My signature.
