I think blogging is good for personal expression, you are only limited by what you know and what you don't know. I did not have a satisfactory education, as i was forced fed religion, from an early age. I have life experiences though as a result of how i was treated, i consider that i have attended the University of Life, without text books, only learned lessons, from coming to grips with the human condition.
I am very interested and curious about other cultures, their lifestyles and history, and what makes them tick. I wish i knew every language so i could relate with the people and know them. I feel that we are flawed as humans, because of the lack of communication and understanding of how other people think and express themselves. We become insular and selfish, and ignorant about the other.[tribe].
History has shown us, that we have intelligence, which maybe used for all the evils perpetrated by our ancestors and to the present day. We have intelligence for living peacefully, displaying kindness and goodwill. We have intelligence for trading with other people foriegn to us. We do NOT have intelligence for our own survival as a species.
We are part of nature whether we like it or not, and we have turned our back on it. We need nature more than we think for our survival. All non human species of nature have the intelligence for survival, even when we eadicate them, wilfully or through ignorance. I feel that we humans are destructive hybrids of nature, resultant from a very serious mistake that happened in the primal pool of biological division of organisms. Humans have the intelligenc for learning, and we need to be re educated, and i believe that nature needs to be our educator, the lessons are illustrated for us if we want to see them, just step outside and begin the lessons, you do need to look and listen though.
Transexuals [they are not transvestities or cross dressers] are special people, they are misunderstood by many who see them in a sexual light only. I only identify as female and with female and i was born in a male oriented body, confusing and not nice, as it creates a very difficult journey, which seems you are travelling on a different road to everybody else. My experience is that it is impossible to erase this journey and begin again, which causes initially, self doubt and confusion about what is happening and why cannot i stop the process?, for many people this leads to depression and suicide. Gender is what is between your ears and sex is what is between your legs. Transexuals have the same sexual orientation as everybody else, you maybe heterosexual, sex with males, bisexual, sex with both, or homosexual, sex with females. Yes it is very confusing and which is understandable for those who are not on this journey. I am heterosexual, though i adore born females, and wish to be like them in every way. I have been on this journey for many years and i have achieved accepting myself, and having self esteem because of it.
Interesting talk about intelligence and design in USA, particularly from the Discoverey Institute, where learned people claim that Charles Darwin got it all wrong, it is so interesting that they are not criticising the scientists of today, only the trail blazer of theory of evolution, such heroes.
Intelligent Design as a catch phase is an oxy-moron, as biology and biochemistry are unable to be patented or converted by ignorant and ambitious designers hoping to create a Branded science product. [Intelligent Design]
The "creation" theorists are attempting to pervade education and traditional religious organisations, by planting their own believers in positions of influence and power, they have the ear of the President and heirachy of the catholic regime in the vatican.
It is a shame that science has been hijacked by corporations with the help of politicians and others with vested interests, such as god fearers. The hijackers are able to create their own versions of truth in science, and feed it into the biggest and best propaganda machines. Business as usual.
Water is the basic for all living matter, it is not blessed with intelligence, or living qualities in itself, it needs oxygen for maintainence of life. This is fact and not a belief system. The belief systems of today have their origins in the long ago past, before Charles Darwin. We have enough madness in our world today and we should not let a "new" madness prosper. Lets keep our hearts and minds to ourselves.
