Goodness gracious

Have you even had a moment, an hour, or a day that renewed your faith in the fundamental goodness of humankind?

  • Sims Medieval cheas is a resource site gathering all of the various codes and hints for better game play. Many of the codes here are intentional built in by the game developers so don't feel bad for being a cheater if you use them.

  • да , только внутренняя чистота помыслов определяет веру в человеческую доброту.

  • What a profound question that reminds one to take stock of life and count blessings. Each single moment is an opportunity to see beyond ourselves and to know the limitless possiblity of good...

  • yes.

  • I went bowling with a couple of my friends this past week, and there was a man and his son who was about for at the station next to us. We had one of those six-pound yellow kids bowling balls, and my best friend Amy (devilswife1993) offered ours to him when theirs got stuck at the end of the lane with the pins because we didn't need it. When he asked if we needed it back, she said we didn't, and a few minutes later while Victoria was bowling, she and I both saw the boy use it, and the dad was helping the boy bowl the ball to knock down the pins. It was sweet, and it's renewed my faith ... for now, anyways.

  • There are far too many to contain here but this one stands out.  I was in church for the late mass and there were two gaunt figure across my pew, one was a malnourished young boy and another was a crippled man who gave the only coin he seemed to have to the donation box passed along after the homily, the boy knelt all through the mass and I thought about the many who cried for want of shoes, this boy must have been crying out for his father. And then, there are personal accounts I found most inspiring in www.GivesMeHope.com  
  • но иногда озарение все таки прорывается и люди кажутся добрее))

  • Not in all humans. But in guys, that's for sure. Wasn't actually that long ago, actually. But well... when someone's amazing, they're amazing.

  • Hmm... Well, it's been quite awhile since I posted, might as well get a couple of these things done, eh? (Not like anyone reads this. >.>) Anyways.

    I can't say that I really have. I don't see humankind, as a whole, as evil, nor do I see them as good. I could say that I believe that humanity is a type of parasite (yeah, Matrix concept, but I sincerely believe it), that we are continually destroying the earth that we stand upon. It's kind of a scary topic for me to think about, even though this is completely irrelevant to what has been given to me at hand.

    All in all, there isn't a real isolate incident that has proven to me that humankind is good. There are things we do that are good, I suppose if you look at it from a certain light. But I feel that we are more harmful than good. The good things we claim do -- give to the poor, take in orphans, farther science that can cure those harmful diseases that plague mankind, and the like -- are selfish, in a way. It isn't to help the earth as whole and even if it was it brings up my next point... We only do something to insure our own kinds survival.

    I do not believe that anythings is "good" or "bad". I believe that there are things that are bad and things that are good. Like, say, not eating an animal. I don't see someone who eats animals as a bad person, nor do I think that the act itself is evil. However, I also do not see it as good. It only "insures" that person's survival and in doing so, takes a life.

    If you look at it all from the perspective I see it, nothing we do is good but nothing we do is really bad. It's like a double-edged blade, I guess you could say. I'd never condone murder, and I think it is entirely wrong and there is no justification of it, but say that a murderer does kill someone. That's one less mouth to feed. It wasn't an act of kindness upon the earth, though that one person might cause "global warming" to sky rocket if they had gotten the chance to live (and I do not base my arguments on potential, as a rule) but he has also taken a life. One that was undeserving of death, in my opinion. It was not fair for him to take that life. Well, I guess I just put myself in a loophole while rambling, didn't I?

    Well, I guess I should stop this before I start condoning murder, huh? God, what alcohol can do to you, right? Anyways. I guess, I'm just going to end this with: I don't think humans are good or evil. There was nothing that could solidify any claims to righteousness we may have. Yada, yada, yada, yada. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

  • А что там снисходить-то? :))) Меня как родили с этой верой в паре, так она со мной и проживает под одной крышей уже ...дцать лет. И укреплять её не надо. Она крепка до неимоверности! По крайней мере гораздо крепче меня самой ;) ))) Моя ВЕРА в ДОБРОТУ людей непоколебима! :)
