I am a 78-year-old American male and I am neither superior nor inferior to anyone. I am just a guy who can do some things and not do many more. I have something alcoholic to drink most nights, but not a lot. I smoked for 34 years, but was fortunate that I could give it up, so I know about the problems of some addictions. The reason I write this is because of the deep pit humans have dug for themselves. We need to stop digging, and we can. There are too many of us. We need to stop increasing and concentrate on solving our real problems. We need to find a way to provide adequately for a huge and aging population. We need to stop rewarding those who already have the wealth of the world in their pockets. We need to stop insisting that some unlikely dogma is the only correct one, and killing those who disagree. I am an agnostic and that consists of admitting that I don’t know the truth about God and creation. There are many brilliant people who believe in each of the existing religions, religions whose dogmas deny the validity of all the other dogmas. That is absurd. We are all really agnostics because none of us really knows the truth. We say “God willing,” and then act as though we are God, as though God (who we believe created everything) has no power at all. STOP IT!
