-Are you a God?

- No.
- Are you an angel, then?
- No.
- A saint?

Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Why Aren't All Humans Still Living As In Mesolithic Or Even Paleolithic Times?

I'm reading Zecharia Sitchin's book The 12th Planet again. It brings up some interesting ideas and questions.  Chapter 3 says:
"What was it that after hundreds of thousands and even millions of years of painfully slow human development abruptly changed everything so completely, and in a one-two-three punch - circa 11,000-7400-3800 BC - transformed primitive, nomadic hunters and food gatherers into farmers and pottery makers, and then into builders of cities, engineers, mathematicians, astronomers, metallurgists, merchants, musicians, judges, doctors, authors, librarians, priests? One can go further and ask an even more basic question, so well stated by Professor Robert J. Braidwood (Prehistoric Men): "Why did it happen at all" Why are all human beings not still living as the Maglemosians did?""
This is just a brief post to ask that question. As I've said before, did someone wake up one day, roll out of his, or her, bed roll and exclaim I'm going to start planting, I don't know exactly what, but I'm planting something. First though let me build a plow. While I'm at it I have some ideas about houses and a town, let me explain it to you. Houses, well yeah I know you've never heard of them. A house is....
