Reproduction ought no longer to be considered a basic human right for all mankind everywhere, both men and women equally.  As in Haiti, it is very troubling that over 100,000 dead people have to get buried by bulldozers.   We are losing ground in the struggle for the people already on the planet to live as well as they should because of pollution and depleting resources.


 

Nonself-defensive competition against others (fighting against others) is the root of human evil.
Let's try to overcome humanity's drive to reproduce on this finite planet.
Anarchism + perfect understanding and compassion within the citizenry = utopian socialism.

A group of ants on a pile were standing around.  One ant says "I think there are too many ants.  They are taking away my resources, and I fear for my self."  Another ant says "I am an ant.  That I am."  A lion above sees the ways of the ants, and the lost lamented joy.  Some of these ants think they are lions, yet they are ants.  How could an ant be a lion when he is clearly an ant, in an ants place?  They question my paws that destroyed one pile, yet they are blind to the view I have.  As the ants torture each other with wars, thefts, rapes, and greed.  As those that are said to live and walk the way of the lion, are known by the lion to walk behind their doors in sin.

That's not very nice, to kill people because of their weaknesses.

The primary concern of my religion is the White Race's survival, expansion and advancement on Planet Earth. Indeed, a Whiter and Brighter World of beautiful and healthy people.

What is good for the White Race is the highest virtue; what is bad for the White Race is the ultimate sin.

I prefer an indivisive religion that aids modern civilization, which needs cooperation among the people of the world.

Religion can't help but be divisive, and for any number of reasons, the primary one being that it is invariably anchored in unjustified baroque assumptions that it holds immune from criticism, revision, or rejection.


A new era of humanity is not possible while it continues to hold to old forms of divisiveness, like religion.


It will be possible once we acknowledge the one thing that unites us all, our shared humanity.

I wonder about religion necessarily being divisive based on where I've arrived philosophically.  I'm not sure if I might be a little inaccurate by calling my beliefs, religion, because it is not really a faith in the classic sense.  The principles I believe in are based on observation, and I didn't want to involve speculation in determining them.  Yet I do believe in them like I might believe that eating will allow me to have energy to do things later on.


Calling it philosophy might be too general, though.  It provides more behavior motivation than I would consider philosophy to provide.  'Philosophy for living' might fit as a description, but it is somewhat wordy.  Language is a source of many problems along with its usefulness.

I think that you have expressed your position very articulately. 


I wouldn't think that calling your view 'philosophy' would necessarily betray it, at least, not in the original sense of the meaning of the word. Even referring to it as 'faith' need not traduce it if by faith one does not mean historical and metaphysical propositions without evidence.


Good post, oddjoe.

Namchuck, thanks.  I have benefited from your posts a lot.
