1) Why does the american people care about their election even though they are relatively educated ?isn't the US president just a Puppet or what ?
2) When the US creates things like ISIS , kills massive numbers of people and does not respect the humanity and rights of others , and the People stand still and do not stand against that in a serious and large manner with them supporting the acting mechanisms with their work and taxes and while they enjoy the wealth and power their country get's over that .. aren't they ethically responsible for that to ? and by that they then deserve a certain kind of punishment ?
3) (the following has nothing to do with the previous questions) ... what accompanies your thoughts of death ? one man once said that we are like a slave that pushes a rock up a mountain .. with the slave being the consciousness and the rock being our minds , since we tend accumulate memories and experiences and knowledge and at the moment of death all that fades in a tragic and quite ironical manner ... i mean .. i know that that knowledge would give us some extra physical joy in life and some extra Euphoria but is that actually worth it ? aren't we then slaves of the pleasure that our minds gives us from time to time ... ?
Not sure what the question is, but Americans care about elections because they are entertainment, like the Super Bowl. A sporting event of the mind. The president isn't a puppet. George W. got us into Iraq and Obama got us out (letting Isis in)
it's kinda hard to punish incompetence. The problem is that we are a democracy, so we have to make compromises. We compromise so much that all substance is gone and all we are left with is talking points for the next election, And... well, we got guns... so it leads to these kinds of issues.
knowledge doesn't fade, it is passed on. Your thesis is flawed
That's a loaded question.
Whilst some parts of some religions often try to get along with others and that's something I applaud.
There are just as many fanatical religions or parts thereof who refuse to get along peacefully even within the same religion and only have great harm in mind to anyone of another sect view or religion.
Some people don't have any beliefs and that's their prerogative too.
The "My stupid belief is better than your stupid belief." factions.
Always the greatest disdain is reserved for those believes that are almost, but not quite, like their own.
It was mean to be.Or, put another way, why would unevidenced beliefs require compassion?Why would you applaud unevidenced beliefs?The "My stupid belief is better than your stupid belief." factions.That is my position.
I suspect, however, in many cases religious divisions are just a proxy for economic discrimination - the haves trying to protect themselves from the have-nots.
As far as "unevidenced belief" Thats your view and one you are more than welcome to express.However that does not detract from the higher majority who do believe and puts you in a minority view.Although your personal view / belief is still valid to you..
This isn't a view or belief at all. It is simply being open minded enough to see the evidence what is there (or not there). And involves making a justified decision on what we know. Saying that something can't be explained, and then claiming it must be the result of a higher power is a gross contradiction and is the result of a closed minded view.We're lucky that the scientific community is open minded enough to accept new evidence and even adopt entirely new ways of thinking which help us progress as intellectual beings. If everyone simply accepted a blind faith and gave up, we'd still be a very primitive civilization.As for actual beliefs, people making a claim there is a god might be right, but since without evidence they can provide no valid justification for their claim, this ultimately gives no reason why anyone should accept it. The same applies to conspiracies and the acceptance of such a claim without evidence, and is ultimately on par with believing in supernatural beings. Of course this does not apply to conspiracies and cover ups that have been exposed, and claim makers providing compelling evidence which one can draw a justified conclusion from.
