Desert
    #11211818 - 10/09/09 12:48 AM (8 years, 16 days ago)

In a land where every drop counts, the Hopi have always sung for rain, prayed for rain, danced for rain, and dreamed about rain.

What is the US version of this? What is our metaphorical desert? Love?

The Georgia governor prayed for rain and now they have the worst floods in state history. Sounds like something I would do if I were God... :strokebeard:

We lack progress, or we just sing about, pray for, and all around desire more of it?

The American dream is to own all the world resources and to dominate the world with our beliefs, and of course drive a huge SUV. We pray for this daily along with the rest of Congress.

To the american superorganism as a whole, Status (usually represented through money and wealth) is by far the most important thing.

"Nature is like a sculptor constantly improving upon her work, but to do so she chisels away at living flesh." H.K. Bloom

"Is God willing to prevent evil but not able? Then he is not omnipotent...
Is he able but not willing? Then he is malevolent...
Is he both able, and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him god." Epicurus c. 300 BCE

"When I brought up the fact that 'No drug is good or bad, they're all just A drug, what someone does with them determines the postive or negative outcome. Look at medicine, those are drugs' Reponse was that 'well medicine solves problems' well so does LSD." -Learningtofly
