-Was there ever really any hope for humanity’s continued future existence?
-As a species, were we / are we destined to fail?
-And, for the religious crowd here, is this what your (in particular Christianity’s) religion warns of, when they insist we need their God, because we can’t do it (the right thing) on our own?
Imagine these things, for example:
- A “model planet” that environmentally thrives, utilizing the virtually free resources that nature provides (wind, solar, hydro, bio) to yield a relatively pristine and beautifully balanced ecosystem, with no waste.
- A species that joins together, across the globe, to work in harmony, advancing itself ever upward through continuous free higher education, healthy living, positive role models, and promoting universally constructive rather than destructive value systems.
- Reasonable population control mechanisms, encouraged for, and based on, planetary resource sustainability
- A sharing of and distributing of planetary resources, fairly, so there are no more hungry bellies or people living in squalor.
These are some positive forces, just for starters, and IMO.
So, what’s the problem? Why can’t this be our modus operandi? Where did we go wrong? Give me your list of reasons.
