great book EVERYBODY needs 2 read

The Fall: The Evidence for a Golden Age, 6,000 Years of Insanity, and the Dawning of a New Era

Quote

It is not natural for human beings to kill each other, for men to oppress women, parents to oppress children, for individuals or nations to accumulate ma**ive wealth and power, to abuse nature, to even despise our own bodies and feel guilty for experiencing natural desires. The roots of our current malaise lie in an ego-explosion that happened several thousand years BC. Primitive pre-civilization men and women lived longer, healthier, happier and more productive and fulfilled lives than we do. We need to learn from their approach to life rather than dismiss it. This is the revolutionary thesis of this well-researched, highly praised volume, overturning the accepted wisdom of the last few centuries.

let's be honest. the only unnatural thing about humankind's self-annhiliation is how long it's taking.

the black plague? aids? stupidity? my current state of unemployment and the despicable way i plan to finance my film.

i mean c'mon. someone has to be enjoying this. no?

we once lived in the garden of eden............    no  it doesnt have to be this way.   get perspective on life... read a book .. this aint a guilt trip  is just truth..

only problem is we need to get rid of a few billion people.....  but beutiful mother nature has a plan for us....  mayby one day when there is again 1 giant  contenint  aka Pangea Ultima

the knowlege and wisdom learn from books like this will mean the return to Eden.
