    save the world in one step

    simple game. which one change will save the world and why.

    for me, i think mandatory mushrooms. every person should get a handful of mushies for thier 18th birthday, and they'd have to eat them.

    benefits? empathy, tolerance, respect for nature on every level, and maybe the ultimate goal, the ability to think independantly. all from an early age

    Please guys, let's keep it clean and keep politics bashing, nation bashing, and religion out of it.

    How does eating mushrooms give anyone empathy, tolerance, respect for nature, and independent thinking? Are you speaking from experience?

    Another druggie trying to rationalize doing drugs.

    not trying to rationalise my hobby, just trying to find out how people would go about making the world a better place.

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

    1. cheaper
    2. nothing to clean up afterwards

    Honestly, I think it would be getting rid of the "R-word" which we should refrain from discussing on here. Or perhaps I should say, one thing that would make the world a better please, almost overnight, would be if people started living as if this is the only life we all have and interacted with others with that idea in mind.

    Inform Muslims, Christians and the Jewish community that all of their gods are one in the same.

    There is no one thing that would work.

    The best I can come up with is for people to share their experiences. Let racists live for a day as a minority, let bigots live for a day as a gay, let the rich be poor, and let the vainglorious know real pain, a thousand nine-elevens on the kids from jersey shore. People often do crazy things because they never begin to fathom what it is like for someone on the other side.

    Let them lose what you have lost, let them make the same sacrifices you have made.

    Very simple.

    Everyone, all around the world, all at once, /wrist at the same time. Voila, world saved.

    Oh, were talking about saving HUMANITY? Because that's not the world.

    Actually it's not, they believe essentially in the same god, just everything else around that belief is different, but it's still the same guy compared to say Buddha or Ra.

    Actually, going by your logic, that forms quite the conundrum.

    All three of those religions are considered monotheistic; I.E. they believe in ONE god. If, by your logic, they all believed that they worshiped a specific god, but the other two religions worshiped a different god, that would make them polytheistic religions. I don't think you want to tell a Christian that he's a Pagan :-)

    Also, Judaism, far as I know, is an offshoot of sorts from Christianity. As well, the general Muslim AND Islam beliefs hold that all religions worship the same god, they just chose to view him differently and give him a different name. Christianity is the only mainstream religion that is selfish enough to think their god is the ONLY god, and is different from all the other heathen religions :-)
