I noticed in the one post you had made that you "were back - at least for a bit". Does this mean that you've taken your atheism elsewhere? Haha kidding aside, nice to see you posting again - please do stick around!
Thanks for the friending, Tom - I appreciate the encouragement on the post. I highly recommend viewing the Rockies at some point in everyone's life, particularly if you can dedicate a few days time, and do so leisurely. What a view.
It's about which pays off for people, making (such as planting or throwing a pot) or taking (such as taking another person's cropsor pots) by force. Once weapons technology became so efficient, with metal blades, those who were physically stronger (men) and willing to dominate by force were reinforced. The flip side of the technology/human culture coevolution is that Dominator culture is now destroying the planet permanently. We're taking and taking from nature, without regard to natural limits. So Partnership Culture is likely to be the only kind of culture which supports long term sustainability on Earth. Taking was a short range optimum but it's not a long range optimum for a species utilizing all of a planet's resources. My impression is that you're focused on blame rather than stepping back to see how humanity has been molded by technology.

Actually, the rednecks are here and everywhere. Let me say, I'm not a big fan of these people. That's putting it mildly. Need I describe them? You know who I mean.This seems to be the time of year when they come out of the woodwork. Here in Indiana, as the weather gets nice, the motorcyclists are out in full force. I hate the noise cycles make. Then there's the Indianapolis 500 fans, the majority of which are rednecks. Interview them or a typical Pacer fan (big news as they face the Miami…See More
"Happy Holidays is a good enough saying for anyone at Christmas time. I support the phrase "happy holidays" rather than the bullshit most Americans were taught. Let's go back in time to look at meanings here. "Holidays"…"
