No Humanity Left! :(


War from NewNews.co.uk

Earth is beautiful but we have ravaged it with our pathetic conflicts and wars for controlling resources. It has more than enough to sustain all living beings on it, yet millions of humans starve and many die. Mankind is puffed up with its technological development but it forgets that it has little to no humanity left !!!

Does it not bother us that our neighbor-whether in our neighbor hood, or in our neighbor town, city, state, or country have little to no food to eat. Thousands of children are malnourished, many die with hunger. Does it not bother us that we fight over water even though water comprises of majority of the earth? We care about making profit even in supplying water! Countries go to war over rivers, mountains, and man-made boundaries.

Governments wage foolish wars, empty the state treasury while getting in debt. No education for the masses, no healthcare for the people, but skyrocketing budgets for the ministry/department of defense. No food on the table of thousands of families, no affordable quality education for the middle and “poor” class but tons of budget for a new defensive gadget called Nukes.

Does it not bother us that people are starving in many parts of Africa and Asia? and in many parts of Europe? Does it not bother us that people are still not back to their normal lives from the natural disasters that struck them years ago, because we all have forgotten about them and have got ourselves busy with our favorite teams and their championships!

The earth is beautiful but we have ravaged it with our pathetic wars. Mankind is puffed up with its technological development but it forgets that it has little to no humanity left !!!

The day when God told His Angels that He would create the vicegerent on Earth. Angels asked the God that will He place therein one who will make mischief and shed blood? God said that He knows what they do not know [1]. He ordered Angels to bow to the Human, and everyone bowed save Iblis– the Satan. Puffed up with his pride and his achievements he said to God that he was better than the human for He (the God) created him from fire but human with clay [2].  The arrogance led him to eternal humiliation, and was exiled from the noble company of Angels.

Do we not see that humans today are in abundant of arrogance. Arrogance and ignorance taking the toll of mankind. There was one thing that Iblis-the Satan did not grasp due to his arrogance. He did not notice that God did not just created the human with clay but He also taught human the nature of things and thus raised him above the ranks of Angels [3].

The ravaging beasts on this Earth can seize being arrogant. This Earth is for us but it is not for eternity. One day each one of us has to leave this place so why not trash our arrogance aside, flush our jealousy and egotism away and work towards the betterment of the mankind as a whole?

The Earth is beautiful but we have ravaged it with our pathetic wars. Mankind is puffed up with its technological development but it forgets that it has little to no humanity left!!

But following the footstep of Iblis– the rejected will only destroy our Earth even further. So why not we stop our arrogance and cultivate our humanity amongst us. We are humans the ones taught to know the nature of things !

  1. D.I.D.

    Greed, arrogance and lust – the most devestating sins of mankind.

    The world is full of people like Iblis/Satan in attitude if not in form or purpose – and from these people springs the problem barricading world peace. Peace is no fun for evil-doers.

    Even more troublesome are those who believe that they commit attrocities for a higher ideal to the point where they believe that they have not committed atrocities.

    Humankind must make the choice that we have always had; peace or war, prosperity or destruction, life or extinction. While technology may be used as an agent of death and destruction, other technology can bring whole nations closer together, and with newfound understanding of itself humankind may yet make the right choice.

    I wish god had made deceit and lies non-existant, even arrogance sometimes leads to betterment but twisting the truth or the word of god never seems to accomplish anything.

    I think arrogance is also part of vanity of people and I doubt the world will ever change, each time you find new things to be arrogant or to lie about to survive, the strong the weak, God and Satan, religion or science, conflict and stagnation, etc.
