I believe we are made in the image of God and everything comes after that... I believe we are not animals we are our own above animals like you said "intelligent" I just don't believe we are intelligent ANIMALS.... I call it a belief because that is what it is to me.... and seems to be for you as well.. lol :DD Can you see it? lol :D You believe it is a fact and I do not!! AHAHA!! :DDD Sorry for laughing. I will step out now. :D Just guys leave it. :D It really is just all what we individuals think. No need to get on each other about it. :DD Just what you think and I think. (:
Why is anyone racist? Why do people dislike green beans? Hell, I hate green beans. I believe that racism will always be around, people hate differences and change, as this country is ruled by rich, old, white, men. It's always going to be that way, people will hate each other for their beliefs because it is different from theirs.
As for further detail into that, I don't understand how human nature works, we're pretty complex if I must say so myself. I don't even understand myself at times...
I agree with Stephen on thin it's due to how people catagorize one another, based on their own prefriences and how the "system" operates right from the start. Who gave the idea in colthing baby girls in pink and boys in blue the miniute we're born? These catagories, steryotypes, and racism are present right from the start of our lives. It doesn't have to be seen as a negative thing, your own individuality is what defines you, but it is a shame that people first judge others by first apparence.
People dislike other people for being different. If all skin colors of the world were the same, then people would be "racist" about nose shapes, hair color or about whether your earlobe is attached. People are *-istic (discriminating) about political opinions, lifestyles, nations, languages, religion and about every other thing that one could possibly think of.
Maybe it's a trait of human nature to want to divide all people up between "us" and "them".
Racism, homophobia, sexism - it's all the same. Pure ignorance.
Some people aren't used to seeing others of a certain race and this can unsettle them. Most unfortunately, others have been taught that certain races are bad.
It's just human nature to twist what we can't understand and sometimes make it the enemy. We can't stop it but we don't have a listen either.
Oh my gosh - this isn't about "God", it's about the relation between human and non-human ... Animal, being an organism consisting of multiple cells, who acts voluntarily, responds to stimulations of a wide degree, and contains a digestive system. The moment you can honestly say that humans don't meet any of those guidelines, is the moment I will accept your argument.
you know what, we arent animals. we are below animals. we may have been shaped in the image of jesus christ but we sure didnt live up to gods expectations. we are a failure of a race, we destroy and manipulate every little thing until nothings left. all we do is hate. poor animals should be insulted to be compared to us, just saying.
I respectfully disagree with your statement. To lump racism and homophobia together is un fair to people of color. No one in this country has wver owned gay slaves. I can choose to disagree that homosexuality is healthy and still love homosexuals. I cannot howeve,r say that I believe being black is not a good choice.
Colleen that is just what she believes.... I agree that we are not a breed of animal..... Who defined us as that? You really think we are no more than a certain type of animal? ): Nevermind let's just end it before anyone gets upset..... We all have different beliefs... (:
I was actually wondering how people can be a certain way to another just because of beliefs , ethnic background or color of skin... not a big ass argument of Baby Jesus and Animals.... just saying
I wasn't trying to hurt anyone and it's not just "teenage girl" that believes this... ): I am sorry you feel attacted. ): You may think He's imaginary. but not everyone is just like you. Good night.
You do step out, because you don't really know what you are saying. Go and belief in your imaginary person up there, you can't prove it, you can however see we are mammals, good night teenage girl.
I actually wasn't trying to argue if you can believe that. Okay Colleen. You know this isn't even about the actual question anymore. lol :D Sorry I annoyed you Miss. /:
I'm not feeling attacked, I'm annoyed that you refuse to use your logic. I know many people who believe in a god, but they use common sense with their beliefs as well.
It's not a matter of evolution or creationism ... leave the bible out of this. People are a breed of animal ... humans are defined as a breed of animal.
Racism is dumb. In this day and age, if we cannot set aside our petty differences in this country, than how can we expect a whole world to get along?
We are animals we are classified as mammals. We are just a highly intelligent form of animals. That is a fact, not a belief.
The human "race" applies to all different races, as we are technically a "breed" of animal, not a race.
... in my eyes we didn't come from animals ... im more of the sand theory .... you know bible
Touchy subject indeed. I had a good time reading this :P
Well I thank you for ACTUALLY answering my question :)
Hahahahaha. Glad you enjoyed it!! LOL :DD
I agree with Lily ^__^
