I tried Reptilian...Once.

It could be served hot or cold, doesn't matter.

However, watch out for the side effects.

I chased a fly across the room trying to catch it with my tongue,
the wall WAS rather....abrupt. (Ahem.)


;)
You are what you eat...Indeed!

I remember after eating Blue Stilton cheese and homegrown chives from my herb garden, I awoke and chased a Reptoid that shape shifted into a toilet...I thought to myself, this damned Reptoid is trying to take the piss out of me!! ;)..

That's cool, I understand if you do not want people to be able to tell if you have an education or not. The world is a funny place right now, you can never be too safe I guess.

But if you went to a school and your school did have a basketball team, then they would have a captain, someone better than all of the others. Someone voted on by the others as the best. And do you know what that is called? A hierarchy. And let's say that particular team wins more games than the other teams and finishes in first place. Do you know what that is called? A hierarchy. Do you have a job? You probably have a supervisor as well right? And it is very likely that the company you work for has an owner right? Well that is a hierarchy too. Even had a stay in a hospital? Did you have a nurse? A doctor? A specialist? Well they had a department head and that person had director to answer to. And that is a hierarchy as well. LOL

Hierarchies have existed in the animal kingdom for hundreds of millions of years...naturally. Hierarchies were a part of every tribe, culture and civilization that has ever existed on this planet. Hierarchies have shaped all of Western Civilization. I am not going to apologize for that. I am not going to feel bad because I live in a house with windows and doors and not some cardboard Costa Rican Shanty town or some Tanzanian thatched hut.

It is pretty hard not having dominion over something when you are at the top of a hierarchy.

Witch Hunt,

I believe in Hierarchies, what I don't like is vicious control based on greed, abuse, lies and manipulations. The Bible is used in certain passages as a mean to enslave innocent, naïve people; yet some of its teachings may be uplifting and comforting to many.

When I am referring to "dominion" I am NOT talking about any hierarchies, but of the sick, vicious attitude to maliciously manipulate and deceive the members for money and the illusion of personal power: I am referring mostly to organized religion, not businesses, hospitals, schools or armies.


The passage in question is this one:

"And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." Genesis.

Which is in fact a license to naïve, materialistic, selfish people to destroy what is good in nature on the process polluting our natural resources namely rivers, lakes, oceans, air,
the soil in such a destructive manner the planet and our oceans are dying mostly by pollution and overfishing, not to mention the mania of killing and eating innocent animals of all sorts for "food".


Extraterrestrials of the light say our whole galaxy and the universe are managed by necessary hierarchies of all sorts that otherwise it would be almost impossible to attain success without those hierarchical space organizations.

I was in the army for a few years which is good example of a necessary hierarchy to succeed in its mission
and purpose: to protect the country and preserve the peace, it is not a vicious, manipulative hierarchy but very practical.

I say mostly religious, and other greedy, hypocrite organizations exist to take, to deceive and control others without any compassion for the wellbeing of the people, for all the creatures which live and depend on a healthy planet, not a polluted one, for Mother Earth or Gaia and every compassionate citizen of this world.

I believe the word you are looking for is "avarice"

I agree with you. My point was aimed at the low effort thinkers that want to believe in ideas that run counter to every single time-tested peer reviewed scientific principle that is taught in academia. It was aimed at those dimwits that want science to take a backseat to their feelings.

Also, I believe avarice is a very bad thing for a society in general and a person's well being in particular. Greed however is a prime motivator for a society's advancement....and growth. A bigger field to grow more potatoes. Own my own chickens so I don't have to buy eggs. And so on. There is nothing wrong with wanting a better this or a larger that, but avarice leads to the cheapening of the human soul. And eventually conflict
