Why would humans do this to other humans?

Terrorist activities based on an excuse of religion; ridiculous laws based on religion; Running and management of a territory based on a religion.

All these actions and judgements, based on a piece of story from a time where people justifies their account of extraordinary feats on things they do not understand. These accounts became an awe to many others who are curious to hear about it, eventually believed it because they do not understand it either, and by believing they can put their mind at ease at finally getting a closure.

Fast forward this accounts to the 21st century. How much evolved humans have become. Things that had no explanation then, are now proven existences. So why are humans still so blind to believe something that was psychology material then, that most probably now can be explained as part of natural geography subject? Is the philosophy then really worth its weight in gold now, if you just think what is being said in the text in a logical way? You most probably would agree, unless you still believe that “Do unto others as you have them do unto you” is something that only a religion can teach, then perhaps this author can start a new religion after this article, and to base this religion on logic and attaining pure logic (reference to “Star Trek”).

Back to the topic: Why would humans subject other humans to misery, hurt and unheard terror, based on outdated information that they take it as their religion? This author have a theory: What had been taken as valued information then due to that period’s lack of understanding, is now taken advantage with intended self-gain on the perpetrator. By using modern psychology to prey on weak-minded humans, these perpetrators are able to make use of others to do all their dirty work, while they gain the fortune they wanted and live as they dictates (which they use religion to mask their true intention).

With that being said, there is no end to the terror they can bring about to the lives of others, as long as there are weak-minded humans around, they are at risk of being manipulated. This author urged readers who understand and who may know somebody at risk, to guard those vulnerable and weak-minded individuals, so they may not end up being prey to these terrorist, and became scape-goats to these perpetrators.

As this author mentioned in a post long ago, there is no such thing as a religion that preaches on terror and killings of humans to attain enlightenment. No religion in their right mindset would encourage you to fire a gun or bomb (also because there isn’t such thing during those times unless they are aliens from other planets).

Be safe, humans.

Short note

The author would like to apologize to her readers for going silent for the past one year. It is not for mourning the lose of a person she considers a grandfatherly figure of the Nation, but it went deeper into multi-layers like an onion; with many other events happening to the author’s life.

Welcoming a new addition to the family; a new career path; new outlook in life are all part and parcels that made up this onion. And while finding new materials and researching on topics that she will soon publish in the coming months, the author hopes that with this short notice of apology, her readers will be patient while the author completes some of her final editing before posting in bulk.

*Pinky promise*

Thank you.

Argggghh…So Confusing with a capital ‘C’…

I’m taking some time off from my usual studying period, to write out a frustration I had over the last few weeks. It was just some casual remark by some of the members in a forum. But to hear such remarks made by some of them members, especially from some that have vest experiences in life and all, it’s really hard not to push it off and not giving it another thought.

What exactly had me bugged for so long?

It all started with some pen, paper, and a topic that I have always been fascinated. I studied on the topic for about 2 weeks, penned down the important notes and information for the article, and when I felt lost, I looked for professionals in an online forum for information. When I’m done with the piece, I had it sent to the publisher. It was all done on a whim, and to try my luck to earn an extra few pounds. I never expected that the little article got published and as a result, I got paid my due.

I started writing a few more, and it had been a successful few months. But real-life work kicks in, and I stopped that hobby altogether with my photo editing interest. That was when I started dabbling on the blog experience. And this is the result.

I was having a chat with some of my close members of a forum one day, and one of them, an uncle asked about my school. I related the difficulties I faced, and the knowledge I gained otherwise, and he looked at me with disbelieving eyes.

“I would have thought you’d take up something more related to language instead of computers! It doesn’t seem like you at all to do something you have no confidence with.”

I was taken aback by his remark. What amazed me further is the few others agreed with him! They advice me to consider a switch of programme, but I had already done half of the programme! I would like to make a change but both topics are something I enjoy doing, and I feel that what I currently pursue will be useful in my future too.

That is what got me confused these few weeks. I do not know what I should do.

What should I do? Advice anyone?

Touched by a song…Hmmm…

Well…a long time since I last post up there and this one is exceptional..I just so happen to be working when I first heard this song, and it’s so full of emotions I was moved to tears, especially the first verse of the song where the lead singer, Hayley Williams sang about a childhood affected by sadness from a broken family, but sometimes letting it go and believing what is true to ones’ heart can heal what afflictions caused by ones’ bitter childhood.

It’s a song by Paramore and it’s titled “The Only Exception”. And here I will post the lyrics to this song:

When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched
As he tried to reassemble it
And my momma swore that
She would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I’d never sing of love
If it does not exist
But darling,
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
Maybe I know, somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we’ve got to find other ways
To make it alone
Keep a straight face
And I’ve always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable, distance
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I’m
Content with loneliness
Because none of it was ever worth the risk
Well,
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
I’ve got a tight grip on reality
But I can’t
Let go of what’s in front of me here
I know you’re leaving
In the morning, when you wake up
Leave me with some kind of proof it’s not a dream
Ohh…
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception
And I’m on my way to believing
Oh, And I’m on my way to believing…

“DON’T GO AROUND POINTING YOUR FINGER, MISTER!”

I recently encountered some very disturbing occurrences in my current working place. People starting to take the law into their own hands, some who are more senior (at least 3-5 years in this dept) bluntly putting the blame on the juniors who are still fresh green grass just plucked from the hills. I stepped into this dump 1 year and counting to half a year more; starting from a very basic task as cleaning up the soiled toilet paper that were thrown carelessly about by the very same team who were in the same dump 3 to 5 years back.

When I phrased it nicely, they were in need of administrative help, which I provided for the time being, since I was the only other female around (apart from an old nag who is deadpan about her scope to seem only wood-dust to cover the manure), but as the group developed, and expansion is in place, all hell rolled out.

A new management, new arrangements, a new bull, and simply overrides the grass the older 3 members (and seemingly wiser) of the herd graze, and plant it to a new calf.

If I were to term it in a manner of a construction sector, the scene would look as such:

Contractor-A got the project to build a sky scraper, and with the blueprint it developed and location selected, started putting down a foundation. Happily they built, and about half the building was erected. The landowner, having some financial issues, went bankrupt and was brought over by another landowner, who discontinued the tenure of Contractor-A and got Contractor-B to continue what has been left off. So in a brusque manner of handling over what has been done, Contractor-A left Contractor-B with very little information to carry on,  especially leaving out crucial information that will complete the structure of the sky scraper. In the end, Contractor-B, with very little to continue, simply start building further upwards, and finally, the whole building collapsed.

Crucial information, not enough training, and not given enough time to slowly expand properly, is what will result in the current situation I encountered. And I hope it will really go down like that sky scraper, then the impact will be felt, and the attention will be refocused back to the dump.

What I mentioned here can be applied to any aspect of  life, from the way a business would rise, to the way the Earth would crumble. It is a cycle that cannot be broken, and if it is broken and refitted improperly, the wheel will still breakdown in the end.

Let’s hope this be a lesson well learnt to all readers who cared to read about this article.

My rant ends here.

There goes my Earth Hour Sign :)

Sign up for Earth Hour! - I VOTE EARTH: Sherine Tang
   Earth Hour 2009 by WWF – Sign up for Earth Hour!

Yes I know it’s a little hard to accept, and also a little hard for the Government to help out on this issue, but if every little bit counts, and everyone put their mind to it, it can work, and it will save the Earth.

That’s for today; I haven’t had much inspiration recently, and I ponder on it; why?

I’ll come up with the answers to it soon, I’m very sure…

For now to my dear friends E and C, I hope a little time out, a little soul searching will yield the answer to the pondering question you guys are facing; and I’ll gladly lend my ever listening ear to your woes.
