    We can discover no purpose or providence for the human species. No deity will save us; we must save ourselves. Promises of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful. They distract humans from present concerns, from self-actualization, and from rectifying social injustices... Critical intelligence, infused by a sense of human being, is the best method that humanity has for resolving problems.

    Do you second this thought?

    Ma, that's from 'A Raisin in the Sun'. And there's no evidence--

    Well said. Funny how many people (especially in the Truthâ„¢) think the thought of there being nothing more to than what you stated is so frightening.

    makes me think of a good quote:

    "I was dead for millions of years before I

    was born and it never inconvenienced me a bit."

    -- Mark Twain

    We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
