The Jerusalem controversy is just another example of how religion ruins everything. Trump, sucking up to his religious base, wants to move America’s embassy to Jerusalem to side with Jews and Christians against Muslims as to who God gave this land to. In the Reality based world however, there is no God and Jerusalem is just another piece of dirt like anywhere else in the middle east.
How much are we going to spend on wars and crazy stuff because one group’s invisible friend doesn’t get along with another group’s invisible friend? What are the consequences of turning our backs on Reality in favor of old stories that just are not true? I think more people should be focused on this world, this Reality, and what we can do to make this planet a better place to live. Reality matters, old stories don’t. Why don’t we focus on exploring the universe, electric cars, and curing cancer instead? Let’s do something useful with our limited existence.
