THIS IS ONLY A CHANGING WORLD AND IT IS NOT VANISHING SAYS EMMA SPRINGFIELD



 EMMA SPRING FIELD IN HER EXTRAORDINARY COMMENT SAYS THAT THE WORLD IS NOT VANISHING BUT IT IS ONLY CHANGING


Oh my. I have some definite thoughts here. First of all I do not believe our civilization is vanishing but it is certainly changing.

Lot and his daughters did escape Sodom and the wickedness there. But you left out the fact that they then committed incest. Is that better?

Michael Jackson's children are irrevocably harmed by the lives they have lived so far. Purchasing children is wrong. At the same time giving homes to children who would not otherwise have one is commendable. For that Michael Jackson and Elton John did a good thing. Other celebrities have done the same thing and been applauded. Who is right and who is wrong? And why is one right and the other wrong?

President Obama trying to convince leaders of other countries to dictate what sexual practices to allow is perhaps questionable. Americans (I am one) seem to believe that our way is the only way. Suggestions are acceptable; force is not.

Climate change is something I feel strongly about. It is getting warmer. We are exiting a small ice age. Of course we are getting warmer. Can we stop it? No. What we can stop is the pollution we are poisoning our world with.

There are dishonest politicians in every country. Some countries have no choice about which dishonest politicians are in charge. In a democracy we hope to choose people who are not corrupt. We are not always successful but we hope.

Condoms being made to sexually active teens disturbs me less than unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. I would like to see more education about abstinence and personal value in schools too. Perhaps the need for the condoms would be less.

The ideal for a family is one mother, one father, and children. That does not always happen. Unplanned pregnancies happen. And sometimes there is a family that loses a member for whatever reason... death, divorce, desertion... whatever. I raised my children by myself. They all have the same father and are the product of my marriage. My husband chose to leave and I was left to raise them alone. I do not regret much but my children deserved so much better than they received.

If every nation would destroy all nuclear weapons I would be happy. But I am pragmatic enough to know that even if that were to happen they would probably come up with something worse.

Pesticides and chemicals used in farming has produced mixed results. Larger more nutritious food is available for us. But the side effects  for some of them has caused a great deal of damage. I have mixed feelings.

Has the world changed? Yes. Are humans on the way out? Not yet. Are the changes all good? No. Are they all bad?  Certainly  not.

  2. It was very kind of you to print my feelings about your post. Also kind to provide a link to my site. I always enjoy the thought provoking posts you write. They make us stop and think which is an important function. It takes away the mindlessness as we normally move through life.

  3. The world is changing as are the people in it. I am grateful that I am the age I am so that I won't get to see the inevitable changes. It's too scary even to think about.

  4. I mostly agree, but I see homosexual rights as human rights, so for Obama to speak against the oppression of homosexuals is no different than speaking against slavery, infanticide, or pedophilia, so to claim that he’s intruding into other people’s affairs doesn’t seem to me to ba true statement.

  8. Emma your apprehensions cent percent I also own.The world has changed a lot.The 'worst' is much more than the 'best'.People mostly think of their 'self' only not the damages that they bring on others to get their 'self' satisfied.Very good version of yours.Will there be any remedy for the overpowering evils? Who knows? Can't predict,

  9. That's true. Although in the news we see it changing to the worse that it seems it's vanishing. I'm hopeful that it would be better though.

  10. Change is happening, better or worse, only future will tell.

  11. I've been thinking about this for a while lately. In a sense, the world has already vanished. The world vanished for the poor in the industrial revolution. Now it's starting to vanish for the middle classes. The real question is: What can be done about it?

  14. Well thought and well presented...The world is changing and the direction of it change is so scary. The old are unhappy, that they could live to witness these days. My only fear is, whats the hope for the young ones?

  15. Change is the one constant besides death that we have in life ~ Each moment is a gift and to trust that the universe will deliver ~ It is 'either the glass is half full or half empty' ~ What you focus on is what you will get most times ~ Worry serves no purpose but to drain one of energy ~ Wishing well each moment.

    Happy Weekend to you,

  17. Being the pragmatic person I am I will try to give my twopence without treading on toes.

    The world is fast-changing but I am more concerned of having nuclear weapons lying around and a president or prime minister deciding to "press the button" than about two men or two women kissing. In previous posts, the author of this blog has used the word "sodomy". I would rather use the word "love". people love. we love our partner, our children, our nature, out friends, our family. We love. That's part of our human nature. We also hate. I would be more concerned about that than the end of the world. Precisely because too much of the former could accelerate the latter.

    With ISIS around, an ever-growing and stronger arms industry and corruption and bribery rife, it is no surprise that we think that we live in the "worst of times". But at the same time we don't die at 30, women have the vote in most countries around the world and our children have more opportunities. We are also a more connected world than ever.

    Make of that what you wish. I have chosen to believe that we live in the "best of worlds". :-)

    Greetings from London.

  18. Change is inevitable. Some is bad, but not all. We have to adapt, but also stick to our moral principles.

    1. "We have to adapt, but also stick to our moral principles."

      I'm 66, and I've seen many moral principles change even among conservative Christians who claim that "the Word of God is unchanging."

  19. well said Emma.

    Change is constant and we are born with a natural ways to adapt with the change, it is just how we immune ourselves to the constancy of change and how we evolve ourselves... Goodluck!

  20. I enjoyed reading Emma's thoughts. :)

  21. I believe that climate change, over wich we have no control, and/or nuclear power over which it would only seem we have control, might gradually bring about the vanishing of the world. It won't happen tommorrow or within the next 10-20 years, but it's not very far away. I hope I'm completely wrong about that.

  22. Yes, watching the news does lead us to believe the very worst about our beautiful world...that it is doomed.
    But, surely, we can change things...if we can only pull together instead of fighting...so I try not to worry too much...

    A thought-provoking post, Joseph.
    Thank you so much...:)
