Humanity~ what does it mean to you?

to msg 22, margo;
Humanity to me is having faith in something greater than ourselves that is pure goodness binding us all together in hope for a better today.

yes, that takes the hopelessness out of it!


humanity on its own seems to have been a failure, wouldn't you say?
how long are we going to go down that path.

personally, I get a lot more satisfaction dwelling on perfect creation than on where humanity is headed.

When I think of humanity, I think of creativity.

in the arts;
in literature;
in music;
in governments and legal systems;
in religion;
in science;
in sexuality;
in poetry;
in relationships and love;
and, unfortunately, also

in cruelty;
in war;
and in terror.

To me, that is what represents humanity. Our ability to conceive, imagine, design and implement new ideas in so many different facets of life; both for good and for ill.

the ^ above captioned statement best defines Spirituality, not Humanity....it would have been best written as:

From another angle:

If I were trying to get across to a REAL Alien, what Humanity is all about, I'd commend to it/they/thee/them, that if you study everything you can about us, learn it all, ponder it for eons, and construct carefully matched analysis and insightful deductions...that you STILL wont have a frick-frackin' clue what in the sam hill a particular individual human might do.

And I seriously think that is more important to realize than all the things we accomplish, together and apart, and all the things we do wrong.

its pretty hard thinking about the 'arts', when you are getting you toes and other things pulled off [war].

humanity; fail.
