my objective is to get humans to stop pointing at other humans as if they're another species.

humans have a hard time grasping what their own nature is.
your nature is not that of a loving, kind, gentle species.
thats called conditioning, its the result of powers, controlling the masses.
human nature is of war, murder, theft and rape.
even with the man made penalties for some of these natural actions of ours, we continue to do them at record breaking rates.
not a point in our recorded history shows us doing otherwise.
the nature of a species can be determined by observing the actions of a species through-out years of observation.
after observing our kind, it is safe to say, without doubt, that all the above, are human nature, wether you like it or not.

humans tends to create a seperation, between themselves and the rest of humanity, wether it be a religious seperation, or a race seperation, or even a seperation of nations.
imo, this is so wrong..... a christian would say that the people that are doing these actions are all going to hell while the rest of us are going to heaven, or they're black and we're white, or their anti-american and we're american.
regardless of what side of these seperations you're on, you're missing the point.
you are human, what you lack, is the true reality of what that means.

if there is something devine about us, it is not this temporary vessel we're in.

Agreed. And that is a big IF there is something divine about us.

The good and the bad go together, but mostly humans are good. Look around you. Seriously. Right now. Look around the room. Everything in your sight was built by another human being. They cooperated with you, or they cooperated with someone who cooperated with you, so you could have all this stuff. You have a roof over your head, and you didn't built it. Don't tell me that humans suck. You owe your entire lifestyle to the kindness of strangers. Who grew your food? Who wove the cloth in your clothes? Who built your house? Other humans.

there is no good and bad.
your perception of good is actually bad in anothers perception.
most people in ignorance would assume that reproducing is good and murder is bad.
in this day and age, its quite the opposite way around.
reproducing this species when we've already surpassed the 7 billion mark would be a bad thing.
murder on the other hand, given our numbers and actions, is a blessing.

these things you mention are our crimes.
serving humanity at the expense of all other life.

what action of ours has benefited anything on this planet, other than ourselves.
what is it that were doing exactly that would place us, in our minds, superior to any other life form... certainly not our actions.

other than the theories of jesus and pink unicorns, which are simply imaginary retardations of our mind, we hold no purpose here, other than the selfish destruction of all that is around us, without an glimmer or respect for anything.

I though you were talking about human nature towards one another. You were talking about war and crime and shit like that. Not pollution.

But even so, we don't live at the expense of every life form. There are billions and billions of life forms on this planet that owe their very existence to humans. Start with the bacteria in your gut and work your way up through the cockroaches and rat and pets and livestock.

so the man tells the people, and then the pink unicorn said unto me 'yada yada yada'.
who is more insane?
the person talking, or the people listening, believing, and teaching their children what the pink unicorn said through this man?

the real funny thing, is that the people in power today, are still speaking of pink unicorns.... and you're voting for them.

Since the pink unicorn doesn't exist, it really doesn't matter. How could we possibly commit crimes against anything, everything is the result of random mutation, one mutation has more of an advantage over another. There isn't even anything like free will involved, just the illusion. A chemical oddity of our brain matter. Even the guy teaching about the unicorn has no real choice in the matter, he's just part of the fabric.

If this is all true, then why should I be upset about the natural course of things?

Am I missing the point?

the guy teaching about the pink unicorn is insane, as are the people believing what the crazy person said.
today, the man would be institutionalized.
of course, back then, people were more gullible.... so why do people still follow these crazy people from thousands of years ago?

no one is telling you to be upset... you can remain content with what you are.

i don't think so, the point is about self realization.
its about our species taking a good look in the mirror.

Thanks for the permission for me to be content with what I am. I appreciate that.

The guy teaching about God, or the Pink Unicorn is insane by whose standard? It really is a matter of perspective and belief, and perspective. Insanity is not a clear view of reality, or a view of something that isn't real. If I believe in God and you don't; you think I'm insane for believing in something that doesn't exist, and I think you are insane for not having a clear view of reality. We are not going to convince each other other wise.
