Jesus said in Matthew,"Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.<quoted text>
Yes, it has come to that. Somehow religious people have the idea that there are not nearly enough people on earth so the more babies the better. I won't say that they have their heads in the sand because THERE IS NO MORE SAND!!! IT IS ALL GLASS NOW!!!
Oops sorry. I got a little silly there. By the time sand would run out humans will have been long gone. The sorry, sick, ridiculousness of believing that the earth is NOT over populated makes me say things just as silly in order to stay in the conversation. I simply talk down to that level in order to keep talking. Loll.
I will not make the point that the earth is over populated with any links or URL's or quotes exedra. I will do it by asking people to simply open their eves and look around where ever they are at the moment. If you are in your home look at everything around you and think about where all that stuff goes when you are through with it. Now multiply that by seven or eight billion people. Now multiply that by a time factor such as each generation or decade. This equation will give you the amount of stuff that gathers as waist. Multiply that by the average amount of time it takes for these mountains of stuff to degrade. X * Y * Z = the amount of stuff that is OUT THERE SOMEWHERE!
If you are outdoors open your eyes and look around you. There is no factoring to do here. No matter where you are, as long as your eye's are open, there is trash! Seven miles under water in the Mariana trench (I doubt that I spelled that right) sits plastic chairs. Baby diapers, grocery bags, water bottles, and the most beautiful Florissant glowing creatures swimming blindly to their death inside of the grocery bag..
If it is night time you can be on top of a fourteen thousand foot mountain looking at the sky and wondering where the milky way disappeared to. Only thirty years ago you may have hiked up that mountain and at seven PM as the sun is setting and the moon is rising you could see Venus blinking not far from the moon. By midnight the sky looks like clouds in most places due to the stars that coat the entire place from horizon to horizon. Today, on a good night, you might see the big dipper. At fourteen thousand feet it isn't even the pollution that is blocking the view, it is the light from cities surrounding the mountains that are doing it. In order to get the view I saw in my youth I have to hike for a week into the San Juan mountains that are far to rugged for people to live...for now!!!
As you can see I never know where I am going to end up once I start writing. Loll.
BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT I WANT TO SAY:):)
I want to tell you that you got that right. It seems that the answer to my question is that the human race is being held back from doing what is necessary by 2,000 year old parables. RELIGION is blinding people to reality. The simple stuff I wrote above means nothing to billions of people who don't have faith in their fellow man but in the words of someone writing about someone else along with other people's same deed and put together in a book. From 600 to 2,000 years ago there lived a few men who spoke in a completely different language to completely different people in a completely different world. If I could hear what they have to say that would be one thing but I am not placing the future of humans on 2,000 years of changes made by ?????? EVERY ONE WHO COULD GET AWAY WITH IT!!!
We were promised a return visit if I am correct. So lets have it or get off the pot and start being responsible for ourselves!!!
That generation died off and tuned to dust over a thousand years ago.
