The sky is falling. The sky is always falling if not this generation then the next.

Today’s prospects for disaster are no different than the past whether from nuclear weapons, waring Nazis, global warming or Mongol hordes.

Anyone looking can see the present course cannot be sustained. Problem is those with any power to change the course are looking only at their own bank accounts where the status quo adds to their power.

Tragically, the bad is coming and there isn’t much of anything to stop it.

Such is and always has been humanity. Nothing new here.

I'm not so sure what will happen to the universe if we aren't here to perceive it

She couldn't care less.

Re: Putting God first before Self
AZPaul3 would no doubt claim that the reason is obvious: God does not exist.

Guilty as charged.

Unless, of course, you can show otherwise.

This simplistic explanation has nothing to stand on apart from the modern rationale that evidence of absence equates to absence of evidence.

Just like garden fairies, centaurs and humanist republicans. No evidence, no thing.

Unless, of course, you can show otherwise.

[looking at the third wall] There's that damn pesky evidence requirement again.
