My Karma Gave Your Dogma a Ride to the Vet

Is there really nothing left a person can do to define oneself but to grab on to a manufactured symbol, hold it up next to their face and say this is me, pointing back and forth between each?

Alright, alright, enough is enough, are we still in third grade people? It seems the only reason we maintain borders and different labels is to continue those childish schoolyard conflicts between peer groups. Is there really nothing left a person can do to define oneself but to grab on to a manufactured symbol, hold it up next to their face and say this is me, pointing back and forth between each?

Today the Muslims hate the Jews and the Christians hate the Muslims and the Jews, well, hate the Jews and everyone pretty much hates the Christians but tomorrow it will all be different, well maybe everyone will still hate the Christians. But my point is, what does all this labeling and infighting accomplish for the betterment of humankind as a whole.

Personally I hope that there has not been an alien visitation to Earth that has had an opportunity to look at how dirty and messed up our house is. This is not to mention our dysfunctional family. We need to do some serious Dr Phil style cleaning if SETI is gonna keep inviting everything in the galaxy over for tea. I am embarrassed for my entire species. Maybe the reason we haven't met any other alien races is because there is this giant billboard on the far side of Pluto reading,

"Warning dangerous and generally smelly ape descendant resides within this solar system. Do not feed or interact with creatures in any way as they are extremely hazardous. It is recommended that you avoid this system at all costs no matter how much they appear to cry out for you.
Repeat DO NOT ENTER!!!"

We might just be the laughing stock of the universe. IF there was a sign we would not know. So since we don't know and we cannot prove otherwise I am gonna start a belief that will make me millions of dollars in donation money.

We are a species in a galactic zoo and our alien masters are keeping us in bondage, giving us false illusions about deities and what not, . . . which instruct us . . .to keep fighting amongst . . . ourselves. Oh wait. . . Isn't that basically Scientology? Damn you L. Ron Hubbard (que shot of fist shaking at the sky).

Seriously though, is the purpose of the human species to continue fighting with itself over a hunk of desert no larger than Delaware, until someone blows up a big enough bomb to bring about the much heralded a(pop)calypse. It is as if they are trying to get mommy and daddy to come down and take away all the toys just so they can get the attention. I hated playing with those kids, and what if mommy and daddy don't come, then you broke our toys for nothing, and even worse we are left with no one to play with.

I am sure that every generation has some would be author who writes the words "we are living in interesting times" about their circumstances. But in order to stand out as the generation in the most interesting times we should not ensure that there are no more times at all. The latest statistics put it somewhere between sixty and seventy percent of Americans believe the world will end in their lifetimes.

Uh . . . is it just this author that wishes it wouldn't.

I am not part of that 60 to 70 percent. At my age, I know the only thing that is going to end in my lifetime is $2.50 gasoline. good article.

I'm just trying my best to live by Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" lyrics without thinking about who wrote them. Good article! I like : ).
