Kulture is the Krime
Our CULTURES ARE KILLING US
Shites massacre their fellow Muslims and the Sunnis return the favor. Our treatment of our native Indians was a deliberate attempt to wipe out their culture and in response many Indians today live in ramshackle shacks as they try to keep a culture alive by hanging on to their outdated roots —(The Fraser river is no longer swollen with fish. fast food for man and bear)
So why do we keep defending these tired old subcultures when there is an inclusive culture staring us in the face? People from every race, from every nation, from every language all work to together to help every race, every nation, and every language. These are the scientists and their supporters who work tirelessly, to find cures for every human being, no matter who.
Look at the lives saved by discovering Insulin, the lives saved by eradicating. so many diseases that used to kill or maim us, wiping out TB, curbing the spread of measles. Wiping out the deadly small pox and so many other discoveries, all by our fellow humans and for the benefit of all of us.
Before penicillin, if you got a cut on your leg and it became infected you would have had to choose between death or amputation…
All this, no matter what race you belong to no matter what country you claim to represent.
So if we wish to die defending a culture, should not it be this inclusive HUMAN culture?
Certainly, all we progressives should embrace this culture, embrace its bylaws derived from science and since all humans are included, all humans should support this culture as their only legitimate culture Only then can we bring peace to our world.
I think one of the most disingenuous practices in today’s society is this attempt to defend spurious claims on the grounds that there is a spiritual—and thus unassailable—dimension to be considered in its evaluation .
For every free ad we get in the community section of our local papers, there will be a dozen or more ads that include the word “spirituality” in them. Churches, of course, use the word abundantly – -it effectively bypasses scientific evidence that might be troubling to their story. But many others, like the new age group, while rejecting the church’s dogma, hang onto this escape from accountability with as much gusto as do their mainstream friends.
The biggest myth is that as you grow older, you gradually lose interest in sex. This myth probably got started because young people seem to want to have sex with each other at every available opportunity including traffic lights, whereas older people are more likely to reserve their sexual activities for special occasions such as the installation of a new pope
RIVER OUT OF EDEN
“ I cannot persuade myself,” Darwin wrote, ” that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created the Ichneumonidae with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.’ Actually, Darwin’s gradual loss of faith, which he downplayed for fear of upsetting his devout wife , Emma, had more complex causes. The macabre habits to which he referred are shared by their cousins, the digger wasps, whom we met in a previous chapter. A female digger wasp not only lays her eggs in a caterpillar ( or a grasshopper or a bee) so that her larvae can feed on it, but she carefully guides her sting into each ganglion of the prey’s central nervous system, so as to paralyze it but not kill it. This way, the meat stays fresh. It is not known whether the paralyisis acts as a general anesthetic, or if it is like curare in just freezing the victim’s ability to move. If the latter, the prey must be aware of being eaten alive from inside but unable to move a muscle to do anything about it. This sounds savagely cruel but, as we shall see, nature is not cruel, only pitilessly indifferent
This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous-indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.”
This from Richard Dawkins’: ” River out of Eden”, who goes on to say: ” During the moment it takes me to compose this sentence, thousands of animals are being eaten alive; others are running for their lives, whimpering with fear; others are being slowly devoured from within by rasping parasites; thousands of all kinds are dying of starvation, thirst and disease. It must be so. If there is ever a time of plenty, this very fact will automatically lead to an increases in population until the natural state of starvation and misery is restored.”
Pretty rough, eh? But in this brutish jungle of ravenous, self- centered creatures, despite the always imminent danger, somehow little kittens survive.Little lion cubs, little baby elephants, little giraffes, unable to defend themselves, unable even to forage or feed themselves, still somehow live to maturity -else their species would have long since become extinct.
Love is a powerful genetic drive, so powerful that the full force of the jungle cannot force it to yield. Brutish animals put their own needs aside to feed these little creatures, even forage for them, even fight off dangerous predators, though they risk their own lives by doing so.
Love inexorably forces selfishness to give way to compassion, to s
We don’t need to find excuses for existence. Life is a struggle because that is what life is about. Live salmon fight the current, dead fish float serenely downriver. Be happy we are alive to fight the good fight, to be able to help each other

LOVE: n, a genetic attribute, common to most mammals, that encourages copulation cooperation and concerned parenting – -all necessary for species survival
