Well, the Christians are still accountable...
accountable  for  What   ?
Oh well, say for ignoring climate change while promoting
overpopulation. Guess where this is leading to...
Right, the end of the species, nothing else.
============\\
so do you feel that the species
has shown itself to be worthy
of its existence?
Well, we have as much right to live here as monkeys and cockroaches.
At least they have the common sense not to overpopulate an area with,
say, 100 roaches per square foot.
==============\\
what can grant a right to existence?
Well, existence gives you the right to existence. It's not like you
have the option to go another planet.
====================\\
from what authority does existence
itself give things the right to exist?
Power, it's all about power. However power is a dangerous weapon to
play with.

Say, for example, by what authority an SUV can be driven without
little regard to safety? And what's the reason for them being on the
road anyway?

"Power."

little people, need BIG vehicles.
So I heard. You mean "little" in the moral sense as well?

It's like the old "Lion will lie down with the lamb." A creature that
lies down with lambs (at least with lambs on the _outside_) isn't a lion
in any meaningful sense, even if it looks like one.
Perhaps a "toothless lion"? Aesop stories contain so much wisdom:

The Lion in Love

A LION demanded the daughter of a woodcutter in marriage. The Father,
unwilling to grant, and yet afraid to refuse his request, hit upon
this expedient to rid himself of his importunities. He expressed his
willingness to accept the Lion as the suitor of his daughter on one
condition: that he should allow him to extract his teeth, and cut off
his claws, as his daughter was fearfully afraid of both. The Lion
cheerfully assented to the proposal. But when the toothless, clawless
Lion returned to repeat his request, the Woodman, no longer afraid,
set upon him with his club, and drove him away into the forest.

***

It's all about having claws and teeth, right? Hey, Christians don't
skip on that. And the little monkey is there trying to have fun, but
Christians don't believe in fun.

Anyway, what's a man without an SUV?

All that hate will eat you up.
SUV people really LOVE people, particularly the oversized ones with
tinted windows.

That's what they call "TOUGH LOVE."

As I was reading a book* last night about "meritocracy" (who's
smarter), I said to myself, "Hey wait a minute, Satan is smarter than
God. He should rule the world!" And indeed he does. Whoever runs the
world must be smarter than the competition.
Ego arrogance and craftiness are Satan's tools, not wisdom or
intellect. Just look at the fools who follow Mohammed and Obama.
Satan does rule the world, see: Matthew 4:1-11
The Deceiver would not be able to offer all the kingdoms of the world
unless he were not already in charge of them, right?
And we all know how competitive the Heavens are. It seems a battle
between "good & evil," but we know how uncertain that is.
Oh...I think you know Who wins that battle
 I think the
one with the most riches tend to rule and that places the Devil on the
top spot.
Yeah...look at Hollywood, DC, Chicago and AlGore, they're loaded
What do you think? This is an amazing topic for philosophers and
anyone seeking the truth. Christians are invited though.
Oh generous of you

Psalm 137 is a story of Arab percucution of Jews.
Regarding Israel, GOD said:  "I will bless those who bless you, and I
will curse him who curses you. All of the families of the earth will
be blessed in you."
(Genesis 12:3) <== (this is why the "Islamic world" is in ruins)
Regarding the reestablishment of Israel, GOD said:  Now therefore thus
saith the Lord, the God of Israel . . . Behold, I will gather them out
of all the countries, whither I have driven them, in mine anger . . .
and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to
dwell safely: and they shall be my people and I will be their God .
. . (Jeremiah  32:37-38) <==  (this expalins the miracle "rebirth" of
Israel in 1948)
God Bless Israel!
God Bless America!
Sorry, when you read that book you realize our elites are all working
for the Devil.
Why
Just because they support the STATUS QUO, and this places us on a
crash course. Yes, they prefer war over smart policies that make this
planet sustainable. It's big things and small things that could make
this world more livable instead of being in a perpetual rat race to
nowhere.

The simple act of riding a bike (or walking) has become a
revolutionary act. I encourage everyone to read the book.

Costantine not Charlamain plese excuse!
Then the Emperor or King has direct contact with "god."
Say I'm the ruler, then by accepting "god" he gives me his consent
to
rule and whoever challenges me challenges god's will.
I think it's good deal. ;)
The "Devine right of Kings"
or....How they conned the suckers!
Then came the revolutions!
And they learned revolutions can be terrible or overtaken by cunning
elites!
Sometimes it took a world war or two before things really got better.
In other cases things degrade over a period of time, then corruption
takes over, to the point that the desperate masses are waiting for the
Barbarians or some heavenly character to show up.
We have the power, Election Day
Best Democracy Money Can Buy... sure!
I think the American public is not ready for the Truth.
When will you be leaving for a better place?
Funny thing is America pollutes and Holland goes underwater.

Well, Holland is a bicyclist's paradise, probably the only one in the
civilized world.

Yep, not much different from Democrats.
snicker
They need each other, or else it wouldn't the democratic nation it
claims to be.

Democracy to me though is having CHOICES, real choices. Being a nation
of consumers with a bipartisan political system is rather irrelevant.

I hear good things are happening in NYC though.

You left out----"Sane" choices.
Unrestricted wealth, power and "Freedom" are the mixture that produced
the worst of times in this (and other) countries.
FREEDOM doesn't guarantee you good times.....
Neither does Socialist totalitarianism, but freedom during bad times is
better than totalitarianism in good times.
"Freedom" to sit in a cage, drive a cage, get fat, get sick and NOT
have health insurance is rather a poor record for "democracy."

I hear the government in China actively seeks feedback from the
people. It seems they worry more about revolution than our own elites.

They have good reason to.
Then is REVOLUTION --or the threat of revolution-- the magic word that
makes good things happen?

I use such word where the Christians use "Armageddon."

Armageddon is far more destructive than revolution, I hear.

I really think this world is fucked up.
