|5 And while there is a downside,
6 Which is that we now have anuclear weapons and will certainly annihilate ourselves,
7 Unless we kill ourselves off with bpollution first,
8 There is no evidence of any kind that we were created in the cimage of any God at all,
9 Let alone a dpersonal God who cares about whether we are good or evil or go to church or give alms to the poor or anything else.
10 In fact, from what we know about history,
11 It looks like pretty much of an archaeological certainty that it was Man who invented eGod,
12 In his own image,
13 fBecause Man was afraid to be alone.
14 And it was also Man who made up the idea of good and evil,
15 Because it helped keep people in line,
16 And people had to be kep in line if they were going to work together,
17 gAnd develop advanced enough civilizations to produce plenty of things,
18 Not to mention nuclear weapons.
CHAPTER 211 Moreover, we've had enough history by now to know that everything always goes pretty much the same way,
2 No matter how hard anyone tries to do things any differently.
||3 No matter how great and peace-loving a religion is,
4 hMankind always turns it into an excuse to commit genocide.
5 No matter how istrict a morality any Chosen Nation tries to enforce on itself,
6 It always degenerates back to the basics of human nature,
7 Which is obsessed with jkilling,
8 kAnd the accumulation of territory and possessions and money,
9 lAnd sex,
10 mAnd status,
11 And not much else.
12 No matter how zealous a culture may be about the pursuit of nknowledge for its own sake,
13 oIt always turns into nothing more than a quest for new technologies that can be used to increase our ability to commit genocide,
14 So that we can have more territory and possessions and money.
15 And that's why all cultures eventually revert to pbarbarism,
16 qAnd all Chosen Nations eventually stop being Chosen,
17 And the rmeek always get it in the neck,
18 No matter what,
CHAPTER 221 Besides, other branches of science have shown that there's nothing whatever we can do about it,
2 Even if we wanted to.
3 We can't change ourselves,
4 Becase most of our behavior is determined by the sgenes we were born with anyway,
