Interesting words from an exil-afhgan. It's well worth reading.

We're an omnivorous species, not predatory, at a basic bilogical level... we've scavengers in effect.

Humans are just fiercely territorial and fearful of the unknown.... a consequence of emotions I think.

Well, we're not meat eaters - our stomachs are not designed to handle raw meat... we are omnivorous - for the simple reason that,as a species, we are weak and feeble compared to most animals both now and during our first years... the reason why we developed technology.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Guys, I just thought of something.

WTC Towers...
Tower of Babel.

Built tall as a representation of the strength of humanity...

Crushed to show our weakness?

Oh dear

FYI . Petronas Twin Towers in Malasia are the tallest towers in the world to my knowledge so surely if some "god" wanted to destroy a symbol of man's power and kill thousans of his own those would be targeted. Plus They weren't destroyed by a natural phenomena ar something that can be interpreted as an act of "god", they were destroyed by our supposidly fellow humans.

Guideline #14 of the HLP Forums: Don't insult an admin. Don't insult anyone, for that matter; insults will get you nowhere but out the door. We will ban you again if you don't listen, and this time not temporarily.

If it was me that he was speaking to about "Insulting an Admin" Apologies, that link was not intended as an Insult but rather as an amusing way to state the fact that comparing the Destruction of the Twin Towers to the Tower of Babel was a very Controversial  statement. Apologies for any offense Caused.
