Don’t forget – The Big E ! The Big Extinction Of Humans. > 99% of all species that have ever lived have become extinct! Therefore, our species – HOMO – has more than  > 99% of becoming extinct (< 1% survival). Evolution is the theory of natural selection and (occasional/some) random mutation!

A Humanist Credo:   

 
      Where shall the human spirit turn
 
      when ancient creeds are dead?
 
      What shall our faith as fuel burn
 
      when all our Faiths have fled?
 
      We trust the human spirit still,
 
      the tide that brought us here;
 
      the sense of good, the human will,
 
      to learn the way of care.
 
      The way is hard and wrong is strong,
 
      but we shall triumph yet,
 
      as more will join the human song
 
      to give, as much as get.
 
      To seek the best in you and me,
 
      to share and care for the earth,
 
      to serve a new humanity
 
      and bring world peace to birth.

      The world is too much with us; late and soon,
      
      Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
      
      Little we see in Nature that is ours;
      
      We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
      
      The sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
      
      The winds that will be howling at all hours,
      
      And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
      
      For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
      
      It moves us not; Great God! I’d rather be
      
      A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn,
      
      So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
      
      Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
      
      Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea,
      
      Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
 
      William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

About luckyme0

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
