because since the fall of man, in the garden of Eden, there has been an evil nature in man, and it's getting worse, it was mans choice for this to happen, not Gods. and as more and more people say that there is no God, or more people begin to worship Satan its getting worse.  

Eden is about one and a half hours south of here if you want to go back.

It's worse actually, I've heard they have a fast food drive in at the entrance that sells fried chicken. I mean, shouldn't the chicks be fried in hell?

So, everybody has seen it!

Why are we/you posting?

There are tougher/bigger/better tanks/airplanes than we were ďtalkingĒ about, arenít they (Iím a MTRY HY fan so what would you expected from me to ďspeakĒ about?)?

The Isr vs Pals is a never ending issue, isnít it?

The West is against the East, whatever that means, is it/are they not?

WE ARE, they are (almost like seem to be), are WE/them not?

 

Itís just about the 5W1H Iím working with. It goes like this:

  • When?
  • Where?
  • What?
  • Why?
  • Who?
  • How?

Still, are we a failure, despite SPKUS ultimate question?

This question has also kept my mind busy for quiet a lot time...

For some time i also used to think that we human beings are a failure. But recently my views have changed .

In my opinion, any individual who could improve his level of intellectuality and develop a certain sense of morality is out of failure category.

For Marx, the whole history hitherto is  a strugle among classes.

For me, the whole history hitherto is a distinction between enlighted and failed ones

We're still in our infancy & just recently achieved things like equal rights for women, space flight, etc.
We need more time to "mature".

Is that "time to mature" available?
 
We have also achieved 2WW, drugs, AIDS, global warmingTongue(I'm not convinced about this), pollution, etc..
 
Space flight, for example, how many people living on this planet give a s***t about that? We were supposed to have a lunar base by now!!!
 
We are infants; are we growing up?
 
Eco question: what should be our (mankind) most immediate concern: the welfare of our planet or the welfare of ur species?

I view the collective mass of society differently to the individuals across the planet. As a mass we are a failure, as individuals we are the greatest beings in the known universe.

As a mass we're not a failure; After all, who would decide that we are or are indeed not a failure? The beauty of the human race is that we have great ability to do great good but also to do great and terrible evil. Without the threat of evil in society, good would not look so good and we'd be frigged.
