Guns and Moses

23 Feb

According to a recent Gallup poll, an overwhelming number of Americans are in favor of women serving in combat. And both  sexes seem to be in agreement, with 76 percent of women and 73 percent of men claiming to be in favor of the idea. Seventy-four percent of those polled said they would vote for the move, while only twenty percent said they would vote against such a plan…

We’ve come a long way from our Garden of Eden haven’t we?

That got me to thinking about what it would be like to live in a world without guns, killing and the desire for violence and  it occurred to me that once upon a time human civilization did have such a time.

When humans first appeared on the planet there were no guns…but then over the years humans learned to use their brains and began to develop tools to make their lives, their work, their desires and their defense against predators easier.

And gradually, only a few thousand years later, we are headed towards a society where most everyone will own or will advocate the owning of a gun for everyone else’s own protection…and from whom? Each other!

Apparently despite the laws of man and Moses and most specifically “Thou shall not Kill”, we have decided that the best way to not kill is by giving everyone the ability to kill. Do you suppose this was what the religious law givers were hoping we would  do?

In any case we’ve gone from not being able to kill, to killing, then to religious beliefs and a god that forbids killing, to revolutionary governments that protect our god given rights to kill, to weapons of mass destruction that will kill us all if we dare to use them… and now look where we are…debating whether we need more guns or…fewer guns and whether or not we need women to join in on the fun?

It doesn’t make a lot of sense but this is where we are today and despite our country’s apparent love for Moses and his laws it seems that we have chosen to love guns more. I doubt that we will ever possess the courage or the where-with-all to go back to where we started so now we have to figure out how we’re going to remain safe with all of these guns around to tempt us into being deadly.

And after all of this debate there is only one thing that I now know for certain!

Asking someone like Ted Nugent what he thinks is a complete waste of time.

If only evolution and sense had more of a relationship with each other.
