I mentioned  in a previous  thread  that we are separated by ethnicities....Such as African Americans, Irish Americans, Italian Americans, Jewish Americans etc......I failed  to mention then that in the last  20 years, there has  been  an increasing  percentage  of  interracial and inter faith  marriages....I predict that in the  next  20 to 40 years   there will be  so much more mixing  of ethnicities  and faith that when someone asks  what your  nationality is you can  honestly say   100% American....... ....Because   by then  America  will be truly  unique in our  genetic  makeup, and since  we share  the same  double helix  DNA, we will all truly be One in the same...........Since  people  also  marry outside  their faith, I also  predict that religion  will only  be getting  in the way  and  the majority will choose  to be  Agnostic  or  even go with Atheism....Wouldn't  it be great if  everyone  wakes up and  realizes  that god  is not real and  they can live a normal, happy life,  without  praying  to this  mythical  creature...............I would  be interested  in your  comments.....

And, what about the people of Chihuahua, Sonora, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Jalisco, Baja and the Yucatan? This continent just doesn't belong to white Norte Americanos from the US or Canada.

Freethinker, you're correct. I should not have used the term 'white' Norte Americanos. My mid-statement. Not your lack of clarity. Apologies.

We are one is a good concept. It was also a song by an African entertainer called Lucky Dube. He said that people, trees, and all the animals "were one." This included all people and all colors. He had the right idea but unfortunately he was killed in a car highjacking in South Africa, apparently in the presence of his young son.

Will this idea take hold worldwide? I think it will, but it just takes some more time. Children today are more racially tolerant than their parents. They also tend not to believe the old religious myths. With computers now, the information age has come forth. All they have to discover now is that life is not all about dope, and get over that old teenage saying "there's nothing to do." Wake up and get a life. There is plenty to do.

we are one - works for me, as long as I don't have to be American...

There's really no country where all is well. But what I want to say is: if we want to be ONE - as we are, because we're all stardust - don't hide behind stupid borders, don't greet a flag, don't mouth traditions, don't throw your ancestry about, don't allow people to look up to you or down on you. Leave all that stupidity behind! We are people of the universe, so why do you bother with nations?

What's wrong with reaching for the stars? I know I'll never get there, but if I want to live according to the things I believe in, I'd better start getting myself and my surroundings into the right shape.


"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."

(Henry David Thoreau, in Walden, Chapter 18: Conclusion)

Yes, some of us in the USA have Europe envy.  The USA has so many stupid cruelties - the mistreatment of the poor by drug laws, the criminal justice system, and generally failing to care for them.

The USA does well in freedom of speech.  It's shocking to most of us that just saying something or writing something could be punishable by law in many European countries.  At least if they are talking about ideas - information like nuclear bomb plans is different. 

Some time back, I remember seeing a piece on NOVA about a Russian scientist named Lysenko and his efforts to create an alternative model to genetics, describing how trait inheritance behaved.  In that portrayal, he was shown having an argument with a Russian geneticist (whose name I don't remember) about whether elephants were the descendants of wooly mammoths.  Lysenko mocked this man, telling him, "You've never even seen a gene!" and pointed out what he saw as radical differences between the two species.  The geneticist's response was simple and wise:

Don't just look at the differences.  Look at the similarities.

More than anything else, I suspect, that's what humankind needs to do: recognize that we share far more in common than the differences which may separate one from another.

That's funny, Mindy.

When my wife first got to this country I would tell friends sometimes of a problem I had with her. Ultimately it came back as "you need to tell her this is America." What the hell does that mean?

Like if we lived in Germany I could tell her "this is Germany." WTF?

Yep, We Are One but most of us are still working on it.
