Topic: Serious Discussion / ARE We In The End Times?

I do not believe we are in the “end times” as you say, but I believe that it is a very looming possibility that many people will not take easily. We are in the natural process of thins, and you cannot predict what will happen in the future, you must live in the present and only in the future will we ever know.

I believe that if we are in the “end times”, it will be a man-made disaster brought on by somebody who does not know what they’re meddling with.

With the world’s “End” will come a new “Beginning”.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Gay Marriage

I strongly support Gay and Lesbian marriage being that I am pansexual myself. (Meaning that I am blind to a person’s gender and who their identity is, who they look like on the outside, and I go for what I see on the inside of people and who they are.) I do not see marriage as a religious ceremony, in fact, anything but.

I don’t believe relationships and love should be dictated by a person’s religious beliefs, but instead on what they believe inside. This is part of the reason people have such a hard time accepting things, they force themselves to believe what their religion believes, completely shutting their mind off to what they believe and who they are. They don’t understand that though you may belong to one faith, that you don’t have to agree with all the practices and beliefs of that faith, but instead be true to yourself, no matter your religion.

If it is as you say, that homosexuality is “unnatural”, then tell me, is heterosexuality natural? You’re going to answer yes to it. It’s not about the title homosexual, bisexual, heterosexual, but it’s about love. Something that most would say is in your nature and one of the most powerful things on Earth. I am arguing on the behalf of all people who believe as I do, and say that it’s not about the titles, it’s about who they love. If you were to have a girlfriend or boyfriend, and somebody were to attack you because of your romantic interest, you wouldn’t pay any mind to it because you love your significant other. The human race is of NO risk of dying out, and won’t be for millions of years.

Polygamy is different in every way possible, being that they are openly cheating on the one they supposedly “love.” I can guarantee you a polygamist will not view it as such a bad thing, but they do not truly love their husband or wife if they choose they don’t want to spend their life with them and them only.

You cannot point to a book written by a group of men saying: “This is God.”. That is generalization in it’s own and to classify god as one thing is blasphemy by your own rules.

My point being is this: No matter what somebody does it’s always going to be wrong in the eyes of another. Where DO we draw the line? Sure, if what you say is true, BILLIONS of people will be offended, but it’s not their decision to make, nor is it the churches. Gay marriage is not going to hurt anybody, in fact, the ONLY thing that will happen if gays do get married is that they’re openly showing their love and respect for eachother. There’s not going to be a world war, there’s not going to be a natural catastrophe nor is the human race going to go extinct.

They will be proud of who they are.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Cyberbullies and bullies

I’m not saying I agree with the practices of bullying and cyber bullying, but I’m also not saying I’m not guilty of either, which leads me to believe I am able to raise a fair opinion on this issue. What people don’t understand is that bullies of any kind do it because of insecurities about themselves, pent up emotions and no way to talk about them or letting them out.

People do it because they might have something going on in their life, because they’re hurting or because they’re going through a bad time. They believe if they can make another feel their pain, feel how it feels when said thing happens, that it will be better because somebody will know.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Animal Rights

Man’s primal instinct is survival, and what he fears will be what he kills or tortures. I don’t believe people have the right to kill or torture animals, but they are necessary to our survival. We have been given animals and plants for diversity in our planet, we are omnivores because of this and if one animal goes extinct, we will likely find something else to eat for our own survival.

I believe animals should not be seen as beasts and creatures but more as a being that was placed on our Earth for a reason, I do not see domesticated animals as pets, but more as companions that we choose to care for and walk alongside. People do not have the right to torture or abuse animals, because if you think of it, if it were a human, people would go into a frenzy. People see animals as beings lesser than them because of their difference, they feel threatened and therefore will kill for their own needs.

No matter who you try to convince to change their ways, I’m sorry to say that it’s not likely to happen. People will continue locking animals in cages, killing them for a nice fur carpet, and eating without giving a second thought to the life they took away for their own needs.

I do not disagree with hunting for food, it is in our nature, so long as the person doing so appreciates the sacrifice made in order for them to live another day and have their needs met. I see it as a beautiful thing, the animals giving their lives for ours, and it leads me to believe they are of a higher mental state than even us.

Just because people may not see who they are inside, does not mean there’s nothing.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Quote Discussion, Current quote: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

“God is a concept by which we measure our pain.”

This can be interpreted in many ways, and I believe that God is what people make him out to be, that no two people’s opinions of God are the same, and they will play and manipulate God into their own image of who he is and what he believes when they cannot know.

If something goes wrong or right, it will either be “Thank god” or, “Why would God let this happen to me?”. People don’t know what or who God is, or what his actions and motives are, and therefore cannot generalize him as such.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Debate: Is Human Nature Inherently Good Or Evil?

I believe you cannot classify the human race to a title such as “Good” or “Evil”, because essentially they do not exist. I believe it’s in people’s nature to be generally neutral. Who a person decides to be will be decided on their upbringing and their own beliefs.

I think that every person is different and has different values, but that’s not to say they cannot be good or evil as you put it. Everybody makes their own decision and has the freedom to do what they may, even if they don’t believe so. Their freedoms do have consequences, but if somebody would like to become a mass murderer, they have the ability to do so, no matter the consequences.

I don’t believe the human race steers toward a particular title, that sometimes people make mistakes and people can change, but it is in our nature to do things that some would classify as “Evil.” The general population is run on Greed, on thinking they deserve something more so than somebody else. People think the world owes them something, and that can lead to corruption of their mental state. My point being, is that people will make mistakes and do wrong, but without wrong, how could you even classify right?

People will either learn from their mistakes, or let them swallow them. It’s not up to you or I to judge them.

Topic: Serious Discussion / What happens after death

Marcus Aurelius, Emperor of Rome:

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

This is exactly how I feel, and what I’ve gathered from it, is this: Live your life, no matter who you are or what you will be. If you are unsure of God, it will all be okay. Don’t worry about it. In the end, nobody living can know what happens after death, and in death, is only when we will know. Don’t spend your entire life stressed out over what may or may not be, instead, enjoy your time here. If there is a God, you will be forgiven, if there isn’t? Well, it won’t matter because you made your time last. No matter what you believe in, what’s done is done. We will all die, it’s inevitable. We should spend our time here coming to terms with this, and making the best of it.
