Topic: What I'd die for.

I would die for nothing.

This doesn't make me a bad person to say that I wouldn't die for Religion, for Love, for Family…

Humans at their core are for self-preservation and I don't consider it cowardous. You can often get more done alive. Many "brave" people go to their deaths and gain nothing for any cause they might have held to heart.

I am passionate for many things and I hold a strong bond with my boyfriend, I'd rather none of us die. If I needed to risk my life to save him I would but I don't think there's often any realistic scenario where it would be my death or his. If so I can't predict what would happen and I consider it a bit vain to assume I know what would happen.

There's no need to die for my religion, I can live and celebrate what I believe in. That's how people can see you as a good example of your religion. The best way to spread your belief is to simply be a good example and be open to questions the best you can. Fear, Death, Force won't change belief it'll change only appearances and enforce hatred. I don't believe in forcing others to believe.

Dying for something could even be considered the cowards way, you aren't living to see it through, you aren't facing the hard times that come from pushing for change or standing against, or fighting back. It's much more powerful to live through hardship and come out standing ready to share your story.

We aren't Jesus (if you're not religious just treat this as a description) so we have no reason to die for the problems of this world. We need to live to change them.

Movements have been started and the world changed because of death. For Good and for Bad, but those that died weren't the ones to face the horrors of the aftermath that the living had to face you come out on the other side. I believe there should always be another way.

We should all die for nothing!

We should all stand for living to create change!

The only thing we would die for is to ensure the survival of our genetical footprint.

Mich Millner, no, not even that. Something else will come along. And our genes seem to be mighty fucked up.

Mich Millner, Even with that in mind, aren't humans rapidly messing up the process of natural selection?
Mich Millner (puhn)
Opie ♻️, isn’t „messing up“ part of natural selection as well?
Opie ♻️
Mich Millner, I'd think not. If natural selection is about giving an advantage, the variations that mess up would not be 'selected', so wouldn't be part of the natural selection. Part of the wider process of evolution, yes, but not the successful choice. Natural rejection... winners of Darwin Award

Opie ♻️, redefining to the theorie, both outcomes are part of it, I like the term natural rejection 😂

Thanks, Cinder, for this card. I think it relativates the... let us say... a bit radical religious cards here on SOLA lately.

Cinder, in the 21st century... back in the 80s I hoped that human kind will get over it (RADICAL RELIGIOUS OR OTHER RADICAL BELIEVES) within my lifespan. I fear I was wrong. I think, when you are not able to accept or even laugh about jokes about your believes, you start to be radical. A narrow road. And dangerous.
