Wake up call

Post by glooey » Fri Jul 01, 2011 8:27 am

Question. If you are a genius, why are you not out in the real world solving the practical problems that mankind faces instead of indulging in this virtual masturbation?
Answer. You're not a genius.

Thanks for the wake-up call. I was drifting off there.

Do you consider philosophical and spiritual thought to be useless?

The greatest and only problem of mankind is untruth. And the solution to that problem is to know the truth, and make it known to others. If you haven't found this solution, then you are living in a dream and not the real world, regardless of how many practical problems you've managed to solve.

Ok you bigmouth anonymous shit-slinger, give me at least three reasons why mankind deserves to be helped, and if I'm convinced, I'll put in and do all I can (ps. I can do a lot more than the average joe, if so inclined)
