Origin of War repost

We, as a civilization, continually make the same mistakes over and over again. A good study of history would make one realize that most humans were in a near constant state of war for the the last 30,000 years. Most likely, it all started when bacteria "A" ate bacteria "B"'s food particle, and we've been fighting ever since.

Thus, evolution began.

With the declaration of war by bacteria B, the three billion year war began. 10^114 innocents were raped. 10^99543 were killed, often eaten alive. At first it was between those that wanted to eat their food particles in peace and those who wanted to hoard food particles for themselves. At first, the two sides were evenly matched, but the hoarders ate more and got bigger, until they started to see the pacifists as food. Thus the war became more intense. The pacifists now needed a means to protect themselves from the predators. They opted for a variety of defenses, poisonous gases, calcium spikes, gorging on food particles themselves, but the wiley predators were always a step ahead of them. For three billion years the two sides battled, although the battlefield changed dramatically through that time. At first, the sides were clearly drawn, but as the conflict raged on, it was eventually forgotten what the fuss as all about. This took approximately two weeks. However, some three billion years later, a sign of change has arisen. For the first time in known history, a peaceful resolve is brewing amoung many of the thousand sides. People now willingly march in the streets and tell the alpha males to merrily fuck off when the they tell \ them to send their children to die. It's a start, more work is needed, but for the first time, the conflict between those who have enough and those who want more is beginning to be resolved. Let us push on in this effort!

On Stupidity - Repost

So let's see, the lame word of the day is stupid. People use this word and variations a lot. It's, well, stupid. I've heard the word stupid to describe a wide variety of activities, most of which aren't stupid. Most things are not stupid. What is true is that people have specialized intellects. Due to the conditions one endures (or concieves to endure) and the tasks one feels that they need to learn to please their food providers (usually parents.) These conditions are quite varied, and by adult age these lessons and methods of survival are quite engraned. People raised on TV and Books are not necesarily athletes and the memorization of motor controls is somewhat difficult, and stopping and relaxing and thinking activities through and reading and such is somewhat difficult to those who relied mainly on physical activities to get their "perks" and food. Consequentially, things that occur to some under some circumstanes do not occur to others. Remember, no one sees the world in the same manner; and it's primarally because of this. Our entire minds are the products of everything we've experienced. No one is stupid.

Okay, since we've established that people aren't actually stupid, why are so many people identified as "idiots"? It is because most people attach their egos, that being the part of our mind that we use to interact with the universe ie other people, social roles, dealing with others. Most people say someone else is stupid because they don't agree with them on how to acomplish various tasks. So stop doing that. Every idea is worth a minute of rational analysis. Take time to breathe and think. It helps the head.
