A recent letter quoted Darwin, others, and ramblings on single cells and fossils to ridicule evolutionists. I am a 21st century evolutionist.
Ignorance is fertile ground to embed and manipulate opinions and actions based upon myths generated thousands of years ago.
Most carnage now shattering civilization derives from religion-based myths with lesser portions of tribal creation, favored gods, superior race, specific rights, etc.
When scientific facts and resulting truths eliminate myths new global relationships will become manageable and peace on earth a real possibility. Only that will save our little blue marble.
Our era round-tripped people to the moon, supports life aboard a space station, sends rovers to planets, cloned animals, developed cures for heretofore fatal diseases plus exercises stem cell healing powers and building new body parts.
Equally spectacular, the National Geographic Genome Project is an epic scientific breakthrough that irrefutably proves humans evolved in Southern Africa and migrated throughout the world. 3,000 years B.C. Egypt embedded actions changing the Neolithic life into sophisticated civilization.
Basic science disproves Torah and biblical stories of creations. One day occurs at North/South poles yearly. Google search shows Imams have thrown up their hands. Mark Twain’s comment regarding the Bible: “It is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upward of a thousand lies.” — Letters from the Earth.
Meanwhile, power hungry leaders teach naive or ignorant followers unquestioning obedience, loyalty, hate and killing of nonbelievers in Islam that earns them instant heaven and eternity — including 72 virgins
If it’s that great why haven’t leaders shown the way by gaining heaven’s rewards themselves?
Could they be lying?
Why then do you die for their selfish cause? What about choosing the opposite path and the life it brings.
Peace, achievement, personal growth, vibrant relationships, your own family, happiness and love.
Leaders of mayhem. Do you actually believe random hit-and-run killings and mini-wars will eventually bring all nations under the rule of Sharia law? About 370,000 babies are born daily; 7 billion people exist and U.N. estimates 9.6 billion will occupy Earth in 2050.
Time will come that governments of free people coalesce and you shall be hunted down. Drones shall send you to a lesser place. It will be the start of a better world.
