it is our nature to learn we always hunger for knowledge but sometimes it is the one that leads us to destruction

I definitely believe that the pursuit of knowledge is the highest goal a person can strive towards; after all, ignorance has been a leading cause of conflict for millenia. However, it seems to be a bitter irony that often the only way to learn is to destroy.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

But isn't it already enough to at least stop at a point and realize, "hey! I think that must be all for now" However it's not. We do ANYTHING for the sake of this knowledge. It seems that the quest for this knowledge is exponentially progressing. We had the atom and we are searching more far in the outerspace, but still we are destined grow old , our body weakens,terminate to death. I do not want to sound biblical here, but in the book of Job and Ecclesiastes, we humans always thirst for more and we have so many questions though no matter we strive more, all and everything we have done will be soon forgotten then. The facts we discover will be just replaced by another fact. And everything will be just in pages that are soon to be aged and simply be over and done.

That perhaps is the ultimate irony of mankind's quest to greatness, that he is doomed forever to mediocrity, if even that.

*Yawns* Can we be new at life for like... 3 minutes?
Not smart, but not biased. Like little kids, that would be nice... No worries, no ideas either way.

That would be glorious, except within about thirty seconds or so we would start hungering for knowledge and forming opinions about everything.

Ethics is already overcome by science.
Simple living afterwards is a great reward in life.
But it is natural for man to seek and solve.

If only this world would be renewed, but that I think would come to the 2nd life after death. No more sexes, knowledge, opinions and ideas...

For science to truly benefit humanity it needs to be kept under control through proper ethics. Left unchecked, science is dangerous.

Trully. It is just questionable that, some intellectual and talented people have academically gained so many degrees to reach their level today, human mind is somewhat utilized in a great extent after revolutionary discoveries and experiments, but the simple thinking of beneficence or non-malificence over living things, that therefore is really hard to achieve.
