    The world is NOT going to hell.
    Conditions are better for humans now more than ever. Look up life spans, infant mortality, etc etc. Would you rather live in Victorian America? the dark ages? Think you would be happier when slavery was rampant EVERYWHERE instead of the relatively fewer places it operates today?

    The fact that the world is going to hell is a myth perpetuated by fundy religious types who want to sucker the masses into thinking that we need to appease the mighty spirits who live on the mountain -uuh, oops I mean pray to god- to alter things here on earth.

    *realistic class*

    Sure .....considering global warming.

    and by the way the world also means humans too so no need to get so technical.

    And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.

    When people turn what is called "god" into an image of themselves then "god" does all those things that an image is capable of. Is the fault in "god" or in the image that has been created and those who invest belief in that image?

    ***Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.***
    During the middle ages, a time of widespread and devout belief in God, people were rewarded for their faith by the plague. Whether one trashes or praises God, disasters happen just the same.

    ***And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.***
    Yes, and next time I'm the first driver at the scene of an accident, I'm just going to drive on by unless I'm darn sure the victims are going to ask me politely for help first. Good manners are so important.

    Without naming specific names, I will say this: Some actions of those claiming to be "religious" can be attributed to simple human imperfection. Other actions are a blatant disregarding of what the scriptures teach, to fit their own dogma, or to excuse their personal behavior.

    Kudra, I so agree with you!

    I don't think humans have changed at all over the millenia. Of course, none of us have been around that long, so we're all just going on our gut instinct, but my suspicion is that the belief that 'things are worse now' is a myth. There have always and always will be a mix of the corrupt, hateful, violent, caring, loving and concerned. I think the governments operating now are the best the world has ever seen and anything less would be ineffective in controlling the enormous human population. Global warming and the rest of the environmental catastrophes will eventually make the earth uninhabitable for humans but we'll be long dead and life will go on in other forms. The dolphins will probably do a lot better when they inherit stewardship.

    for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives

    I saw this email a couple of years ago.
