Jim's Ideology >
Jim Spofford this is why I am skeptical of science in many cases. Follow the $.... Your thoughts?
Blacks, Jews, Indians, Chinese, Gays, Atheists, Women, Short People, etc, etc, etc. Race, Gender, Sex, Religion, how long before we figure out its not the "Others" that are the problem but the shortsightedness within ourselves that causes more harm than good. There is one group I'd like to see us contain/control/isolate and that is the small percentage of the human population that is so shortsighted and selfish that they will do almost anything for their own benefit and totally disregard the implications of their actions on their fellow humans. My consolation for those individuals is that they rarely, if ever, enjoy what they acquire this way.
Imagine the human race one day working together to address the true, evidence-based risks to our lives and our happiness instead of wasting time on imaginary risks, conjecture, and man-made risks created out of ignorance. On that day, the dark ages will truly be over. Before that can happen we must learn to discuss our differences with intellectual honesty and respect. How much longer must we continue to suffer from our own ignorance?
