People are too quick to give up on this world

So many people want the world to be destroyed by their gods in order to 'live' forever in a paradise while forsaking the world to ruin. Why? This world has been worse, we are just exposed to more of it all the time. In the past people would get shot unjustly and even their own neighbors might not know about it. Now people around the world know instantly if people point it out. Because they aren't just focused on their small corner of the world they assume the world is terrible. It's part of the times to know more. Knowing it isn't bad, it's just that we need to know how to fix it without going to 'oh well, the world is doomed and should be destroyed so I don't have to hear about it any more." If that's how you really feel, disconnect and cut yourself off from the knowledge. You'll be happier for it. A small few of us will be more than happy to get stressed out over the problems that need to be solved in this world, and yes, there are solutions that really don't need a divine presence to correct. Just keep that it mind.

scarily there are people looking forward to the apocalypse - they want it to happen in their lifetimes

That's what I find disturbing. So many people hope that it will happen as soon as it can, and they don't seem to care about their families or anyone else.

@arthurchappell If they want apocalypses, they should watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They are always trying to stop another apocalypse from happening!

if we are here, we are here for a reason, no point rushing things

I like to rush things. The world marches to the beat of its drumming overlords. They need to take a hike!

Whether it's the warlords or the born - again Christian, it is just splitting hairs, if you ask me. Organized religion is more dangerous than most people want to admit. It will be the destruction of us all, it has already started. I used to go out for the cause, and that used to drive my dad crazy, now that I'm older and without a car there's not much I can do these days. I'll be glad when I can afford a car again so I can get involved again.

Well all the religions will have to move aside soon. Ancient powers are moving, and manifesting in this world. There's not enough room for everyone together. :D

well, we just can't handle the problems of the rest of the world. We can only do so little of our lives, I think we shouldn't stress ourselves with problems that are beyond our reach. but we can speak for it, whether agree or disagree.

If we concentrate on improving our lives and the ones around us, perhaps that can cascade and keep moving. The problem is that it takes work, and so many people don't like the thought of work. Although, if the world reduced its dependency on money, things would improve faster.

To many people in this world want to ignore the problems and they just do not care.

Yes, and many don't try to enrich their lives when the options are available. They fall into a culture and stay there. Also, people inherit the grudges of a previous generation. If your farther wronged my grandfather, that stays in that generation. What should it have to do with you and I?

We will never achieve the Gene Roddenberry vision of the future where man overcomes his nature and becomes beautiful and peaceful with nothing but altruism in his heart. And it is man's heart and man's nature that is the problem, the history of the world is nothing but blood and war and conflict with short bursts of peace here and there, but not for long. It is man's heart and nature that must change, not our scientific knowledge or our technology - none of that can fix the basic problem. Only God can change man's heart, and divine solutions are the only ones that can fix the problems of the world because they all stem from human nature.

Well we won't achieve with that attitude! But destruction is something that is inherited and natural. It doesn't mean it has to be acted on. I think frustration is a apart of our lives, and when answers aren't given it boils over.

There is not much we can do individually. Yes we have some bad stuff around here beyond our control, but I think we are all doing what we can to make our spot okay.

Actually there is a lot we can do individually. I'm just one person but I have global goals. I don't plan on giving up until my body is broken and dust. :)
