Tell me why.

Ours is not to wonder why but just to do and/or die


I posed some simple questions a number of articles back and I’d like to begin this piece by asking them again, because they’re fundamental.

Don’t they know how many of our own poor can no longer afford to heat their homes? Don’t they know how many millions die in the developing world from malaria because we won’t allow them access to DDT? Don’t they know that a million children a year die or are simply blinded for life by withholding the distribution golden rice? Don’t they know how many lives could be saved by supplying the poor with drought and disease resistant GM seeds? Don’t they know that switching from growing food staples to growing biofuel crops for cars only the rich can afford has more than doubled prices of basic foods? Don’t they know about the people killed in the food riots? Do they actually know anything? Do they care anyway?

  1. The answer is in the common conclusions of real science, religion and spirituality:

    1. “The Sun is the Creator, Destroyer and Sustainer of every atom, life and world in the Solar System” [1].

    2. Or as Max Planck [2] observed the source of “a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together … We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.”

    1. “Solar energy,” Advances in Astronomy (submitted 1 Sept 2014)

    2. Max Planck, “The Essence of Matter,” from a speech Dr. Planck presented in Florence, Italy in 1944, entitled “Das Wesen der Materie” (The Essence/Nature/Character of Matter) Quelle: Archiv zur Geschichte der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Abt. Va, Rep. 11 Planck, Nr. 1797:


  2. Thanks for posting my comment. Bad things happen because a “conscious and intelligent Mind” endowed humans with free will to act selfishly or selflessly at each moment along the journey of life.

    Human life is a continuous battle against selfishness. We have no way to know if anything else struggles to walk life’s tightrope.


  3. Drug Prohibition with its denial of medicine to those in need is just as much a crime against humanity. And yet it gets short shrift. Kinda makes a feller wonder.
