Default Important question

Peace

Since the majority of the world's religions and faiths possess a mono-theological belief, why can't people use this commonality to promote peacefully coexistence? I have my views and answers on why we can't and how we can, but I want to hear your opinions, beliefs, and facts.

Its because people are egocentric. We are naturally inclined to defend/favour ourselves in values, traditions, etc. in which we IDENTIFY ourselves. Also people will just resist that change of who we are....perhaps superiority of religion..."my ideas, values are better".

Of course some people can....however, most people cant.

One reason would have to be, many religious peoples beleifs are so strong they don't want another religion to be somewhat on a higher level then there own religion, Like many Christians beleive that buddhism, astrology, and other things in that matter are the work of satan. They beleive that there people (christians) were only saved by christ, and think that believing in these other ways (including other religions) are like a one way ticket to hell. So there beleiving so strongly makes them hard headed believe christianity is the richous religion. In a way that they can keep order in there people, this may sound wrong but its almost like Hitler believing that Jewish people were wrong, so destroy them all and his beleive would be the only one. Its very much bullshit, but people with beleifs as strong as that think they dont have to respect people of other religions, races, or ways of life, because its not the one they beleive in. This may not make sence to others but thats cause im not the greatest with words...

Because how many gods you believe in is quite irrelevant to everyday matters that cause conflict.

But not as irrelevant as you may think, because alot of everyday conflicts end up with at least a small link to someones beliefs

Very well stated. I see this and would like to see a greater understanding achieved. I'm a big dreamer in some regards, but an even greater visionary. Thank you for your comments, they were well received.

I can tell you how Africans and African decedents can regain their natural peace and tranquility. If "we" re-learn what was whole (holy) we can regain our holistic health and well-being. Cultural rebirth will place Afrikan people in a position where no wo/man can determine nor control our fate (that's the abbreviated answer).

Now for the world... The originators have to seek and return to their origins in order to restore order and teach all of the rest of the Earth's residents how to live correctly.

To clarify. When Europeans robbed the tombs of the Gods they spread a 15% understanding of the holistic sciences that they stole. This distortion of supreme knowledge and lifestyle has polluted the minds bodies and spirits of the planet for thousands of years. The architects have to reprogram the mental computers of the misinformed to promote proper living.

This is like me stating the demands of the Black Panther Party to the President of the US and him concurring, I understand this, but this is but a snippet of my views.

Not everyone. Some of us just want to survive and be able to facilitate resources to our people.

To more specifically answer why we can't, I have a real story that can explain.

I had a person steal some Cd's from me. He scratched my name off of them and wrote his name on them. Brought them in the attention of everyone, to claim his ownership of them. He was from Texas and listened to Screwed up music, the Cd's he stole were Wu and Nas. Everyone with a clear understanding could easily determine that my claim to them was authentic due to the following facts:

-There was evidence of an attempt to destroy the original distinguishing markings on the item.
-There was evidence of an apparent remarking (renaming) of the item.
-The item was not of the nature of the possessor.
-The item was of the nature of the person that claims that it was stolen.

Apply this story to the story of the grave robbings of Africans by Europeans, add the understanding of the escalation of "modern" technologies around that time, and you'll get evidence that the original holistic (holy) way of being was stolen misinterpreted and disseminated to the world through racism and imperialism. This abomination has destroyed humanity and its relation to the one Supreme Being.

If someone steals something they will not return it because it would be know that they are thieves and criminals; therefore they would have to relinquish control of all stolen rights to the goods and services stolen and be held accountable. The powers that be will never freely incriminate themselves.

I apologies if I offend but I state my understanding as of present. I'm tired so please excuse any laziness in my verbiage and articulation. TBC.
