are the Geeks, for they shall internet the earth
Commentary by Doug Chick
When I read Arthur C Clark's 2001 Space Odyssey, as a young man, I
envisioned the turn of the century as a great advancement to humankind, and
for the most part has been. We have shuttles that make regular voyages to
space. We have lasers and computers that can perform operations as delicate
as brain surgery and we have satellites that can relay data, voice and
television to a 42inch
Plasma Screen monitor that will cost me a divorce if I even think about
buying it. And we have weapons that can destroy entire continents. So how
can it be that religious extremists whose brains are not capable of created
even the smallest of technological wonders are in charge of the largest
countries and the most dangerous weapons? I don't understand?
As political borders come down religious ones quickly rise in their place.
Faith based countries are beginning to emerge from around the world and as
it once was in the past so will the violence be again. So as political
leaders hammer flat the once round globes in their presidential offices, the
sound of war drummers beat at a blacksmith's tempo. And once again Jews,
Christians and Muslims are spilling blood over desert dirt that presents
itself as being holy. How much death and destruction can such a small piece
of real estate harvest? How can history repeat itself so many times?
