The increasing urban spaces has somewhere sidelined the aspects of basic human living values and is mainly focused on boosting the economic activities. The increasing density of the cities may give rise to the situations like 'Emergency of Waste Consumption' which will effect the race of humanity and natural system in the long run. #humanity   #urban   #settlements   #dense   #waste   #consunmption

It is true people are very wasteful. Not only people that renew, reuse, recycle, upcycle, and so on are great but I do find freegans awesome as well.
Still though it is considered taboo to have people scavenge and find ways to not waste what once was called garbage more often than not.

The Story of First Humans and the Evolution of Humanism :-

The earliest primate with two distinct qualities – grasping the fingers and binocular vision, evolved around 65 million years ago giving rise first to prosimians and then to monkeys. Other mammals do have binocular vision but the combination of the above two provided the ground for an ease in adaptation with the environment.

About 30 million years ago, some anthropoids migrated to South America, where they evolved in isolation. Around 25 million years ago, anthropoids that remained in Africa split into two lineages: one gave rise to the Old World monkeys and one gave rise to the Hominids. Hominids includes the apes and the hominids (humans and their direct ancestors). Apes exhibit the most adaptable behaviour of any mammal except human beings. Once widespread in Africa and Asia, apes are rare today, living in relatively small areas. No apes ever occurred in North or South America. #humanity   #humanrace   #humanism

I find it important to acknowledge all things that exist. Ignorance does not rid of prejudices and people should understand this by now.

There is work to be done, but no jobs.  What does that tell us?

I'm not sure this follows, but it's at least thought provoking.

The Original Judgment

The judgment described in the Egyptian Funerary Texts is the foundation on which modern theology stands.

When the particulars of the judgment were first recorded (most probably some time around 3000 BCE), a judgment of living people was described. Actually, two types of inspection (the word “judgment” in the hieroglyphic is also used with the meaning of “inspection” [inspection of the temples]) were recorded: one focused on the physical traits of the man being inspected and the other focused on his ability to speak a certain language.

The ancient Egyptian priests transformed the “life after Judgment” into “Life after death” and thus the concepts of soul, afterlife, and immortality came to be.
The modern translators followed the example of the Egyptian priests and carried on with their deceit, obviously in order to protect religion. They announced to humanity that the authors of the Egyptian Funerary Texts (the oldest texts and at the same time the oldest religious texts of humanity) were obsessed with magic and thus felt free to mistranslate a number of key words in order to prove their point (James Allen, the American contemporary expert in the hieroglyphic, refused to go on with the deceit but, unfortunately, he chose to just stop translating those terms in order to protect his colleagues of the past).

An article entitled “The Original Judgment”, with word for word translation of relevant hieroglyphic passages, can be found in the link below:

http://dtango.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/the-original-judgment.pdf

A few days ago a similar article, regarding the making of the concept of the soul, was posted and is available in the address:

The US and Britain respect no one and value nothing except Imperialism. There is no possible way they could ever make up for what they did to these people, makes me ashamed to be an American. I have been feeling that quite a lot in recent years.

With the emergence of megacities - the life of the urban humans have considerably fallen down as far as in terms of quality of life is concerned. Megacities do hold an important economic node, but there's no reason hyping a specific city beyond its limits and its carrying capacity. #urban   #human   #settlement   #living   #values   #sustainable   #humanism   #system   #natural   #carrying   #capacity

I have a little "What would you do?" that came up in my life lately.  I'm curious how people in the community would address this... or if at all.

 I volunteer with Big Brothers/Big Sisters in my area, and my Little (8yrs) is a great little guy who happens to live in a crap situation.  Single uneducated mother, low income, etc, etc.  His grandmother is very present in his life and is highly religious, no surprise there.  I'm not trying to turn him into an atheist, but we've spent a lot of time recently on cause and effect, logic, the universe, just to get him to start thinking past his situation a little and especially focus on school and reading.  He's very young and mostly we just try to have fun, but I think I've been making progress.
    So, the bombshell.  His grandmother wins a 3 million dollar lottery.  Yes, this has the chance to change their whole situation, but what does she do... she is squandering it.  He tells me stories about her spending $500 on scratch off tickets every day and the like and that God is helping her out because he loves her.  Now, I'm really worried that this will set him down a bad path at an important point in his life.  Not only is he talking more and more about God and putting more value in money, but in a year or two they'll be out of money again.  
    I'm an outsider to this family and it's not my place to say anything.  My responsibility it to my Little though, and I'm a bit lost on what lessons I can help with to steer him out of this.

My article on what secularism isn't. Apparently a lot of religious folk cannot grasp the concept of secularism:
http://futiledemocracy.wordpress.com/2014/03/30/what-secularism-isnt/
I've always been ever so slightly bemused by the term 'militant secularist'. It is generally used by two groups primarily; those who wish to oppress the rights of the religious and presume seculari...

Most people think that this kind of censorship is protecting them. That there is good reasons to block such things. Internet over the world and including in the US has surveillance and censorship... and it is increasing all the time of these things. What do you think of all this?

Many prestigious scholars attempt to unify society by promoting Humanistic Themes.
Many attempt great strides within Philanthropy are ironic benefactors of great ancestral disparity (Anti-Life/Anti-Human).

Excellent blog post written by a former pastor exploring nonbelief.  

I can relate to a lot of what he is experiencing as I only gave up my faith/belief in god about six years ago and went through a very similar experience when I was in the process of losing my religion.  Humanism has become my life stance since that time and it is the most fulfilling philosophy that I have ever discovered.
