The Real Danger To The World

The view that God is planning to bring this world to an end has been around for thousands of years. To say the least, those who still expect this to happen in the fashion of brimstone and fire from God have no understanding of what humanity is busy doing in this world. To progressive minds, the view is superfluous. At onehumanityproject we agree that God will not destroy the world in that fashion but if this should happen, we have nothing to gain or lose because we did not give this world to ourselves. But we should not allow ourselves into some theological debate in this context because it is not God who is the culprit. What we need to appreciate is the fact that humanity has shown beyond reasonable doubt that it is the one with the potential to destroy itself and therefore this world. It does not need God to do that.

People have talked about a nuclear holocaust and this should cause us to worry a lot. With the availability of destructive technology in abundance and a lot of carelessness around, what guarantee do we have that no mad fellow will ever come up with a nuclear bomb and detonate the same without warning? We have allowed human beings to commit suicide and we do not seem to know where this leads to. We have allowed systems that do not question such behaviour. Even if they do question, how convincing are they? We have come to give the impression that after all human life is not all that sacrosanct. These are really the kind of distortions that we are bound to pass on to the next generation and by that very token, placing a time bomb right into their own hands.

The world we have come to appreciate is one that is so fast and so unpredictable. It has thus become ambiguous and dangerous in the sense that humanity is groping for direction. We have allowed cash economies to dominate our world markets thus exerting too much pressure on those who could not afford that cash but are expected to survive anyhow. For cash anything goes and so human life could be sacrificed for the same. Those with all the money at their disposal could do anything under the sun without quibbles of conscience. We listen to world news only to hear that certain individuals are worth billions of dollars while others are worth nothing. We hear that in some countries animals are better fed than people in others. We celebrate inequalities as though they were normal and yet it could be convincingly argued that not all poor people are poor because of laziness. Today, many people are poor because the socio-economic as well as political systems that were put in place in the contexts that brought them up were discriminatory and oppressive. Such systems were never reversed in any radical fashion. Hence poverty continues to cause havoc even in contexts were such systems have been discarded. Worse still, many countries with natural resources in abundance have been denied, by certain systems, the opportunity to enjoy what nature has provided them with. Quite frankly, this is atrocious!

As long as we are not honesty in our dealings with others, the danger of annihilation will never come from God but from among ourselves. The same human being we would like to celebrate so much is the very being who could easily be the architect of the end of the world. Our worry should be how to stop the human person from becoming so mad. We reject the view that violence could bail us out. An atomic bomb dropped in 1945 did not do much to deter people from starting similar wars soon after. It simply demonstrated how much specialised we are when it comes to destroying our own. Nobody is proud of such an achievement.

We notice that values that used to be at the core of society are being eroded by the day. Of course the blame has always been on exaggerated moral norms and such rigorous socio-cultural rules that forced people to rebel. Family life is fast becoming a thing of the past and therefore obsolete. Parents find themselves so busy that spending quality time with their children is viewed as a luxury that many could not afford. Again we see priorities misplaced. Office work, executive meetings; clubbing and gambling seem to take centre stage. Children grow up with a distorted understanding of life and they easily fall prey to drug peddlers and sex predators. Then there is the greatest danger of losing loved ones to wars that we seem not to be able to bring to an end once we have started them. If we were to put all the foregoing pressures together, we could easily discover that we have actually created our own time bomb. There will come a time when many more people will see no reason to live a little bit longer. There shall come a time when people will be convinced that they could be better off dead than alive. That is the time the world must do everything possible to delay and deny.

The challenge then is to talk the language of the unity of humanity and to tell everyone that they matter most. All of us must continue to value this life we have and be able to pass it on to the next generation with all the glory and pomp it deserves. We must be able to look back and celebrate the fact that we passed on something valuable to those after us.

Can you imagine how awful it feels to look back only to be confronted by the death and destruction we caused? I am aware of brothers and sisters who have been forced to engage themselves in wars and battles in which the destruction of human life is the major objective. Some do kill in self defence and others for reasons that are not so easy to appreciate. In all cases, the horror that goes with the termination of human life is the result. No reasonable person will ever want to live with such feelings of regret after all. This is why we must continue to deplore in the strongest terms, all forms of engagements that are deliberately designed to destroy human life. We shall continue to maintain that human life is meant for higher things not premature deaths.

The argument in this context needs to be appreciated. If we all come to value human life, we shall spend our energies promoting it. We shall defend human life and in the process we shall protect our world. If we continue with the practice of putting human beings in arbitrary categories and even justifying activities such as wars and such destructive engagements, we shall have no other to blame than ourselves. We shall realise, rather too late, that the opportunities to live this life to the full have been lost.

This is why we must continue to deplore in the strongest terms, all forms of engagements that are deliberately designed to destroy human life. We shall continue to maintain that human life is meant for higher things not premature deaths.

The argument in this context needs to be appreciated. If we all come to value human life, we shall spend our energies promoting it. We shall defend human life and in the process we shall protect our world. If we continue with the practice of putting human beings in arbitrary categories and even justifying activities such as wars and such destructive engagements, we shall have no other to blame than ourselves. We shall realise, rather too late, that the opportunities to live this life to the full have been lost.

Passion for the unity of humanity all over the world. Without the correct understand

The view that God is planning to bring this world to an end has been around for thousands of years. To say the least, those who still expect this to happen in the fashion of brimstone and fire from God have no understanding of what humanity is busy doing in this world. To progressive minds, the view is superfluous. At onehumanityproject we agree that God will not destroy the world in that fashion but if this should happen, we have nothing to gain or lose because we did not give this world to ourselves. But we should not allow ourselves into some theological debate in this context because it is not God who is the culprit. What we need to appreciate is the fact that humanity has shown beyond reasonable doubt that it is the one with the potential to destroy itself and therefore this world. It does not need God to do that.

People have talked about a nuclear holocaust and this should cause us to worry a lot. With the availability of destructive technology in abundance and a lot of carelessness around, what guarantee do we have that no mad fellow will ever come up with a nuclear bomb and detonate the same without warning? We have allowed human beings to commit suicide and we do not seem to know where this leads to. We have allowed systems that do not question such behaviour. Even if they do question, how convincing are they? We have come to give the impression that after all human life is not all that sacrosanct. These are really the kind of distortions that we are bound to pass on to the next generation and by that very token, placing a time bomb right into their own hands.

The world we have come to appreciate is one that is so fast and so unpredictable. It has thus become ambiguous and dangerous in the sense that humanity is groping for direction. We have allowed cash economies to dominate our world markets thus exerting too much pressure on those who could not afford that cash but are expected to survive anyhow. For cash anything goes and so human life could be sacrificed for the same. Those with all the money at their disposal could do anything under the sun without quibbles of conscience. We listen to world news only to hear that certain individuals are worth billions of dollars while others are worth nothing. We hear that in some countries animals are better fed than people in others. We celebrate inequalities as though they were normal and yet it could be convincingly argued that not all poor people are poor because of laziness. Today, many people are poor because the socio-economic as well as political systems that were put in place in the contexts that brought them up were discriminatory and oppressive. Such systems were never reversed in any radical fashion. Hence poverty continues to cause havoc even in contexts were such systems have been discarded. Worse still, many countries with natural resources in abundance have been denied, by certain systems, the opportunity to enjoy what nature has provided them with. Quite frankly, this is atrocious!

As long as we are not honesty in our dealings with others, the danger of annihilation will never come from God but from among ourselves. The same human being we would like to celebrate so much is the very being who could easily be the architect of the end of the world. Our worry should be how to stop the human person from becoming so mad. We reject the view that violence could bail us out. An atomic bomb dropped in 1945 did not do much to deter people from starting similar wars soon after. It simply demonstrated how much specialised we are when it comes to destroying our own. Nobody is proud of such an achievement.

We notice that values that used to be at the core of society are being eroded by the day. Of course the blame has always been on exaggerated moral norms and such rigorous socio-cultural rules that forced people to rebel. Family life is fast becoming a thing of the past and therefore obsolete. Parents find themselves so busy that spending quality time with their children is viewed as a luxury that many could not afford. Again we see priorities misplaced. Office work, executive meetings; clubbing and gambling seem to take centre stage. Children grow up with a distorted understanding of life and they easily fall prey to drug peddlers and sex predators. Then there is the greatest danger of losing loved ones to wars that we seem not to be able to bring to an end once we have started them. If we were to put all the foregoing pressures together, we could easily discover that we have actually created our own time bomb. There will come a time when many more people will see no reason to live a little bit longer. There shall come a time when people will be convinced that they could be better off dead than alive. That is the time the world must do everything possible to delay and deny.

The challenge then is to talk the language of the unity of humanity and to tell everyone that they matter most. All of us must continue to value this life we have and be able to pass it on to the next generation with all the glory and pomp it deserves. We must be able to look back and celebrate the fact that we passed on something valuable to those after us.

Can you imagine how awful it feels to look back only to be confronted by the death and destruction we caused? I am aware of brothers and sisters who have been forced to engage themselves in wars and battles in which the destruction of human life is the major objective. Some do kill in self defence and others for reasons that are not so easy to appreciate. In all cases, the horror that goes with the termination of human life is the result. No reasonable person will ever want to live with such feelings of regret after all.
