RE: Life and death itself..
The fear of death is what instigated the belief in an afterlife in the first place. You have to be better than that. Do not fear death. It won't be your problem, you'll be dead. You won't even be able to think about the fact that you are dead. Your consciousness is a momentary arrangement of atoms in your brain that somehow allows us to have a sense of self-identity. Really, it is meaningless. We are completely meaningless in the grand scheme of things. Just do your part to better the human race. That probably didn't help, but you have to trick yourself into not caring. It is natural for the human brain, which is obsessed with self preservation, to fear its end. Do not fear it.

I think the climate change threat is falling flat, why? Because people don't act, they talk about acting all day long but never actually carry out what they plan. It is always delay after delay after delay, procrastination. It's all about convenience over conservation. What we need is a flagship, something national, and represented by a very popular personality.

They can't act, because the oil companies are the most profitable on earth, and they aren't afraid to turn that money into lobbying (AKA bribery). Lobbying should be illegal.

Also, the conservative propaganda machine have made a good job of making it seem like climate change is contradictory to the Bible, so nobody in the US will believe it. Despite the fact that there is overwhelming evidence for climate change, people somehow find a way to state ridiculous things like it is "not unanimous." One of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard is that the greater the CO2, the greater the efficiency of photosynthesis, so CO2 is good for the environment.

Conservation and halting climate change is not about "saving the planet." People need to start phrasing it like "Saving the human race" because that is what it is really about. The planet will carry on without us, but maintaining the current climate is all about maintaining the conditions that we humans have adapted to. So, greater CO2 concentrations may increase the rate of photosynthesis, but it will make it very hard for humans to survive.

Of course, the end of days argument won't fly with religious fucks because for them, the only way human existence can exist is how it is professed in their worthless little book.

TruthAddict, alvinbell is a bot. There are a couple tip-offs:

- his name ends with two digits. This isn't always a tip-off, but every bot I've seen uses that. ashley.hunt60 and martinb59 are exceptions, but you can tell because they don't fit any other criteria.

- his message was a complete and total non sequitur. This is a thread for discussing life and death and the way that people feel about it. What did it post? Some global warming rant. Of course, he could just be mentally handicapped, but the final (and most definite tip-off) is...

- he has a link advertising shopping coupons in his signature.

That last one is the most definite way to spot a bot.
