    What do you think will help humanity to grow?

    Well I think one thing we would have to do is know our problems, even list them; and then go to work on that list. In example:

    1. Selfishness
    2 .lying
    3. violence
    4. creating false images
    5. spreading confusion
    6. misleading others
    7. perverted lust for things

    Of course one can make the list as long as you need it to be, but I bet a list exist , if we are to truly define ourselves. If you need a list in your research, just find a group of humans; and it does not matter what those humans believe in or don't believe in, you'll have your list. Rather than deal with my list, which has no group, I would like to examine a group, and I am open for suggestions.

    Suggestions for a group should include a willingness to be examined, or a rep. who stands by them. The goal of the thread is the growth of humanity, and what will help that.

    Growing away from the toxic cancer that is religion. Every time we make progress) it is the religious that drag us back and that have resisted progress by every means at their disopsal. -christianity rules in europe we have the dark ages, religion/christianity/islam gets questioned/ challenged we see the start of the enlightenment, scientific progress and the beginnings of challenges to authority. The concept of human rights and in particular the equality of women owe nothing to religion eve's curse lives on and so pervades our culture most people are unaware where the prejudice comes from.

    I agree that the list defined there is definitely what humanity needs. It also happens to be that every single one of them is breached by by the existence of Religions - Christianity in particular.

    education and tolerance
    Lets face it everybody is different for different reasons, so learn about them and maybe with knowing more about those whom one wishes to judge and hate one will gain a greater tolerance.

    the human race is fickle and stupid, and we can't seem to learn from our past mistakes.

    Interesting post; to " Learn " has importance in your conscious awareness ; how do you think we learned to be fickle and stupid?

    Re: What do you think will help humanity to grow?

    Once again I see the same old same old. No matter the faith some tar them all with the same brush in their own ignorance. There are branches of all faiths that simply do not fit the reality. In most cases I read about religions posted by some who do not know what they are objecting to. Of coursed some just want to vent for the sake of venting or in an effort to hurt others. Nice people!

    Humanity needs little help growing. it's like Kudzu in the South.
    What humanity needs help with is becoming something useful to the Universe.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.
