    My step? Get rid off all the hate. It's ok not to like things, but people seem to really get extreme if someone does not agree with them.
    Get rid of all the hate? Well obviously. But for the purpose of this thread that's kind of... not the answer I'd expect. I think he means a change that if there were a ruler of the world, he could enforce it. We can't just make people stop hating.

    I notice that people who say "keep your religion to yourself, don't cram it down my throat" would jump at the chance to cram atheism down others' throats.

    From a purely cynical point of view, I'd say:
    Remove all humans. We are the only creature on the planet that's destroying it. Remove us, planet saved.

    Unite all countries under a single government, eliminating the need for military funding, thus allowing us to redirect an entire world economy towards a united education system and technolagical advancements...

    Please guys, let's keep it clean and keep politics bashing, nation bashing, and religion out of it.
    Um, I don't exactly know how to tell you this but, when I was 17, I went on a trip & experienced exactly NONE of the effects or benefits you are stating.

    If seeing all the trees bend down to form a tree-tunnel over the car I was riding in & if sticking your hand in a fishtank full of oscars & thinking you are tapping on the glass from the outside & if riding in that car & going under or rather, experiencing going under the same single overpass approximately one hundred and seventeen times, then yes, if all that makes the World a better place, by all means, my Mushie friend, go go go.


    BTW, I already have had ALL those "benefits" of how I feel about the World since I can remember. Either we are born with empathy & such or we learn it by nuture, so, the 'nature or nurture' argument is born, but Mushie, you didn't discover it. It has raged for a long long time ^^

    Thanks for keeping it as civil as it has been, but discussing religion is not really appropriate for these forums.

    I'm going to leave the thread open for now, but if the religion topic continues, i'll probably close it, sorry!
    Splenda!!! :D

    I love you in my tea <3

    i'd still argue mushies over nukes though, for two reasons.

    1. cheaper
    2. nothing to clean up afterwards
    Considering the number of druggies who've axphixiated themselves to death on their own vomit, I suggest that you are incorrect about #2.

    Wrong. Making me absolute supreme dictator would fix things, however. A chicken in every pot, and a smoking hot gaming rig for everyone.

    As much as I lie, I'd end up catching the entire world on fire.
