So I was having a beer and chat with my workmate the other day, who I had only known a few days. We got on to politics (as ya do) for a brief moment. We started talking about the state of the world and how it's come to be this way, and what we think the solutions are. I began to explain the basics of The Zeitgeist Movement, which I see as the best hope humanity has right now, which he completely ignored and actually interrupted, in an 'all-knowing' tone, with these words.. wait for it... "everything you need to know, about whats happened, what's happening now and what we can do about it, is all in one place.. the Bible"
.. Obviously in my head I thought 'this conversation is over!' .. But went on to calmly argue that the bible doesn't have a real plan how to get us out of this mess. To which he replied, "when you have faith in our lord, you just know it will all work itself out, it's all happening for a reason and it will all work itself out" .. Obviously it became clear to me that there was no amount of reasoning that would help this man come to realize the truth. So I politely said "probably best for us not to get into a debate about this" .. I quickly finished my beer n got the fuck outta there!
But the problem still lingers in my head. Just what the fuck can we do to help people like this?
.. How naive really, of any man, to actually believe that the answer to everything can be found in one book. A book that actually provides not a single factual explanation of anything, nor provides any feasible suggestions to actually help this species!
It's people like him, in moments like that, that make me lose hope, and quite frankly, be embarrassed to be the same species
