    This is just around the boundary of religious discussion.

    Be careful.

    :Later,
    There is a different between sharing of knowledge on appropriate topics and
    the intention of having tricky religious discussion.
    In the latter, the what, how, where, and why including the either good and
    bad preference are cried out in dismay to the dead end.

    The adopted stance can lead to wrath, killing, slaughter, war and continuous
    flaming even in cyber space.

    Let me give you an example. A detail comparison of the many ancient writings -
    lets take the Koran and the Bible in this discussion
    where specific topics like "anger" "punish", "mercy", "love", "hatred",
    "forgiveness", "insult", rebellious", torture and so on
    cannot be termed as religious discussion.

    Where can we learn all these differences? Not often in the classrooms
    but fortunately in a forum where people can share whole heartedly in a
    more civic and sincere manner can be very beneficial for our well
    being to be a more mature person.

    Have an open mind and ENJOY!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The liberal view that we make our own good, sufferings
    or death is by the actions we take is very true indeed.
    One known action is man's tendency to disobedience.
    At times you disobey your parents, teachers,
    business partners, team members, heads of
    department, colleagues, schoolmates,
    friends, spouses, children,
    true or not?

    when you're old and almost passing on, remember to write your name in it and leave the book to someone else in your will to carry on

    True to say that there are folks refusing to learn
    because of their ego and pride. Have met many of
    such people in my life time in the work place as well
    as in some educational institutions.

    Why people are not peaceful?

    The inability to connect to the Ultimate Reality
    Having no tranquillity in the human heart
    Inability to have clarity in the human mind.

    How to make the heart to be cool and contented?

    The absence of desires, anxieties, wandering thoughts
    and even passions.
    (This is very difficult indeed for modern human
    beings living in this fast and materialistic world)

    The lack of faith and easily being a victim of anxiety.
    Inability to remain undisturbed by currents
    waves, happenings and even war fare in cyberspace.
    The lack of suitable knowledge on how to break down
    walls of hostility between people.

    Efforts to build calmness, coolness of thinking when
    dealing with fellow human beings.

    Fortunately there are people who are blessed with
    inner peace. Usually they have the skills to
    reconcile conflict and take on the role of peacemakers.

    However people can also acquire this ability
    through prolong well guided training.

    "Men do not mirror themselves in running water,
    they mirror themselves in still water.
    Only what is still can still the stillness of other things."

    - Chuang Tzu

    "Victory breeds hatred, for the defeated live in pain.
    Happily live the peaceful, giving up victory and defeat."

    - Dhammapada

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    If a man has the ability to sing with praise and
    love unconditionally all his sorrows shall vanish
    and his mind will be bestow with abiding peace.

    Some want more.
    Some need more.

    Some want all
    Some want enough.

    When 2 individuals want something in common, but there is only enough for one, they fight.
    If the 2 individuals have a gang, its a gang fight.
    If the 2 individuals have an army, its a war.

    Pardon me but this thread is a tad bit idealistic, there can never be enough for all and there can never be more than enough for anyone.

    Hell, arguments can break out over which brand is better, much less how much oil I can take.

    agree - give out TVs plus satellite - 100 more channels of mind boggling rubbish to burn a day out on!

    give out more junk food as well so that we cannot move off the sofa. Less people on the streets.....more peace?

    Even a place like Clubsnap can have quarrel here and there. As long as there are human beings, how would there be peace on Earth?

    No way!!!

    You have good points as mentioned above. To say in one word, it's man's greed
    that has brought his downfall. He wants to conquer so that he can keep everything
    to himself.

    When given a choice, man will have different preference. Some like it black, some
    like it red while some like it yellow. But the choice can be influenced by current
    trend. For example, black cars are not in fashion since the late 1960s. Forty years
    later black cars are back in fashion again.

    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Confucius said, "To demand much from oneself
    and little from others is the way for a
    ruler to banish discontent".

    But how many people in powerful position
    and high status in society can practice that?
