    (SEMI-OFF-TOPIC):

    Before this turns into a debate between Christians and Scientologists, I'd like to remind everybody that everybody has the right to their own opinion and that you shouldn't force your opinions onto others.

    I myself believe in evolution and the Big Bang, but I'm not about to start telling people "YOU BETTER BELIEVE IN WHAT I SAY"

    (BACK ON-TOPIC):

    Anyway, Hakeem, I'm not saying you said that, but by the context of your post, it seemed to me that you were implying it. I apologize if that was not the case. :)

    That was me and not hakeem. Ppl have the right to believe what ever they want, but when there belief system crosses over to where people are getting hurt because of a certain such as ALL RELIGIONS. I think its ok to say, stfu before we put you in a mental institution. I believe in a high power. A God maybe. But thats all there is to it. I dont understand why people need a story to go with a God. Are they trying to understand him? Indentify with him? Who knows, cause at least I know you cant do either. If there is a God, let there be a God. And live your lifes in peace, dont try to go ahead and kill people who dont belive in the same God you do. Thats especially what I think is ridiculous, monotheistic religions that go cursing out other monotheistic religions. Like, how dumb can these mofos be. And we have politicians who think like that, thats the kind of shit that scares me. Like hello!!, anyone consider it might be the same mofo god if theres only one. Anyone consider were his play fukin toys? Scientology doesnt have all the answers, even people who belive in it say that there is a higher power. So why can't everyone forget about religion and live there lifes in peace? Besides the fact that everyones mental and doesnt know how to express themselves? No clue.

    Dam I was hoping no one would notice.

    No. But I don't see how you're getting that out of what I said.
    Whether or not utopia can be achieved is irrelevant. You would give up before trying, and thus never be able to reach it even if it is possible. Because you believe that it cannot be achieved, you can never be a functioning member of a utopia, should one ever exist.

    You're never going to do anything by not trying at all.
    No. Everyone is peachy keen here. Even if it wasn't, I may not possess the ability to help the people currently in need in my area. If someone is dying of cancer, what am I supposed to do? If someone is trying to commit suicide I can probably save them, but I can't save anybody when there is nobody around that I can save.
    Of the Canadians I know, 0% of them have expressed the desire to kill me. It has not occurred to me to kill them.
    Yes. Don't you?
    Funny how that works huh? Why do you think we aren't monkeys anymore? One might attribute it to a difference in brain functioning.
    There is a difference between killing someone and being better than them. Neanderthals died off. We didn't kill them. As an evolutionist you ought to know how this type of thing works.

    I am not saying you said anything about monkeys. I was simply talking to Hakeem after the "On-Topic" part:

    Was referring to this:

    The underlined portion.

    "Utopia" = "u"-"topos" = "no"-"where" = not to be found in world, by definition.
    So use another word :D .

    Incorrect. The word can be seen in two ways.
    ou-topia which means no/none place. Just like you said. But you also have.
    eu-topia which means good place.

    Binded it means a good place that does not exist. However people will try to create a world like this. Once it's created it wont be called an Utopia anymore however.

    yes, it should "work", not "fail". I'm "sure" it will "never" happen though.

    Uhm Hakeem, oil really isn't important.
    There are so many alternative energy sources, once they realized oil will run out soon they will be mass produced.
    They are already being mass produced in my country: windmills.

    There also is nuclear power which we get from France atm, we barely use oil as a energy source except for cars. And we have electric cars. They just expensive.

    Let's not forget all those other alternative energy sources like mixing salt water with sweet water (creates energy somehow). Using the waves of the sea as energy.

    Honestly, this whole thing about oil is pathetic, people think it's everything because the big oil company makes you think that. There is no real need for concern.
    If oil runs out and all countries run out of gas my country that relies purely one alternative energies will rebuild the world lol.
    I'm not sure but I think most western European countries are trying to go to clean never ending energy.

    You lost me right there. Oil is going to run out soon...? What? Where are you getting your facts? Its not going to end for another lifetime or two at least. Oil is very important, right now it is important enough to go war for (Which has been done)

    I don't know shit about oil running out soon ,my point is that it wont matter if it does.
    And there are multiple oils, I'm talking about the black oil that comes out of ground.
    Not about oil made out of plants recently etc.

    I'm not "sure" of that. What does mean "work"? Do you mean, economically positive? Providing sane social relationships? That would be a pretty laughable "anarchy".

    Oh and Airandius, you're half correct about utopia, yet I think I can remember "good place" is written "eutopia" and not "utopia", if we refer to Thomas More. He used both, to explain his book, saying basicly that the island was both an "eutopia", a good place, and an "utopia" (from outopia), a place nowhere to be found, but language only kept Utopia :) .

    The fact that it is laughable is the exact reason why it won't "work".

    Nevermind.
    I was just trying to point out anarchy is probably not supposed to "work" as you say, and that a "system that works" is something that makes no sense for me, since I still don't know what "working" means for a system.

    No I will try to make the world a better place, so one day everyone can live in a peacefully society, although I have a good amount of doubt that it will us humans can ever achieve it.

    Well technically we encountered them several times, because archeologist have found bone remains of humans and them together from a battle. They would have actually survived if we did not kill them off, but I guess were not brute apes anymore. Although some of us are still uncivilized, even though we may not be monkeys. :)

    Anarchy is a step towards utopia. It means the removal of all governments so that our consciousness will govern ourselves.

    Utopia = my bedroom at night.

    ANYWAY, as it looks now it run out for at least 20 years idk. But we still have plenty.
    So let's worry about things that are actually closer to home.

    - Economic Crisis
    - Global Warming
    - Mayan Calendar
    - People believing in the above problems.
