My concern is for the life that exists on this planet, and the understanding of the life cycle.We know , that the very existence of life, is the complexity of our environment, how everything has a purpose no matter how small or large.That through the process of evolution, plants, animals both marine and land, have all changed over may centuries, based upon the environment and surroundings.If all this just happened, then why did mankind have to go through the process of social evolution, why not just pop us into the 21st century.

We sure used to be. We stood up for what was right! We fought for moral reasons, we passed and struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors, we put our money where our mouths were, and we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and cultivated the world's greatest artists and the world's greatest economy. We reached for the stars, and we acted like men. We aspired to intelligence; we didn't belittle it; it didn't make us feel inferior. We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election, and we didn't scare so easy. And we were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered. The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one—America is not the greatest country in the world anymore.- See more at: http://hinessight.blogs.com/hinessight/2012/0...

<quoted text> We haven't the slightest ideal on how the Universe came to be, lots of speculation and theory, but none proven.But how is that relevant, to the here and now, and the life that now exists on this planet. What we do know from the Hubble and other space probes, is that Earth is the only sustainable planet abundant and diverse in life in what we know so far, and we have gone billions of miles. And we continue to treat Earth like a disposable diaper.Based on a false hope of some kind of life after death.Google the Hubble pictures, my friend, out there is a very violent ,lonely place. This is our home, the only one we will ever know.
Umm...you're not Carl Sagan.
Though I believe you suffer from the same major depressive disorder.
And like him, have exacerbated your condition by use of weed.

lol, What that is my friend, is an accumulation of knowledge from many different resources, Carl Sagan being one of them. I take it by your derogatory comments, you are against hemp. Perhaps you should look into the science of it, before you decide to make a decisions as to its benefits or ills. If yous want your bread and circus democracy to change, then yous must inform and educate yourself..Critical thinking my friend, its a beautiful thing.

Amazing that you recognize the complexity of our universe and life on this Earth, even acknowledging "that everything has a purpose" -- and yet claim that life spontaneously generated from inanimate matter -- when science itself demonstrates that life cannot and does not come from non-life, and that complex life forms cannot and do not come from simple life forms.

And no scientist can prove otherwise.

My friend it would be a waste of time , trying to explain the complexities of the evolution of life on this planet, if you are going to ignore all that I have presented. perhaps, seeking the information for yourself is of better use of your time. Knowledge is not something thats given to you, you have to earn it,

Oh, pretentious one, knowledge informs that there is no absolute empirical proof for either evolution or creation.

You have picked your faith.
And I have picked mine.

I thought the hippie responses to complex problems were childish as well.

Always wanting to put that wedge of indifference between us,lol. I would hardly call some of the worlds top scientists,biologists,archeolo gists,environmentalists that are non prejudicial, and working for real science lazy hippies.It would also seem that what those crazy hippies of the late 60s where saying about corruption and self interest of the Vietnam war where true. Did you know the American taxpayer still hasn't paid for that war ? Or do you like to just follow blindly, not questioning authority.Apologies I forgot , your a believerforef of blind faith.

Because your faith in the assumption that the universe and life on earth developed out of nothing by sheer accident is just so much more intellectual than my faith in the assumption of the existence of an intelligent designer.
Who made your designer, using your own logic, he, it , whatever it is to you, would have had to come from some where. Again, mankind is not intellectually mature enough, to handle the truth. There is more relevant concern for the responsible management of life on this planet.

You remain in abject denial of your own faith position.

According to your faith position...time, space and matter are either eternal or self-created.
So...you go first.

I think the best idea is one I heard from Ottawa. Build the pipeline to BC, load crude on ships and carry it to China, Japan, North and South Korea, Viet Nam and places in the Far East.
Canada should not involve USA in their oil business. Or any other business for that matter. Canada for Canadians. I love my Canadian cousins.
Sadly my friend, over 70% of the tar sands are foreign owners. China, USA, and Britain being the big ones.BC ,is one of the last places, that has a somewhat, natural eco-system. it will only take 1 accident to destroy this pristine land, I guess as Canadians we have to ask ourselves, if the risk to the environment is worth it. And if so, then why are we the people not in control of it, and why do we not process, and manufacture our own by-products.The tar sands are expected to double in size by 2020.It is our shame, so we should at least benefit from it. Revenue collected could go right back into our social programs, and a much needed relevant public education system, as well as maintaining and building new infrastructure, using the very best of science and technology.If Dubai can build one of the most modern cities in the world in the middle of the desert, surly we Canadians, with our vast amount of resource and low population could do much better than we are now.
