petesmith, we are not talking about anarchy literally, anarchy is also a form of civilisation-like monarchy, democracy etc.

and that is why anarchy does not work
if noone sought authority
the it would have a chance
but we all love power
we crave it
so it will'nt work

Can you give me an example of one. I don't see how it can be different from the definition.

The "Idea of God" was a concept created out of man's inane need to justify its existence and what it was not yet capable of explaining rationally. However in this day and age superstition is best to be given no serious thought. The idea that humanity is "dependant" on the graces and authority of god to continue its existence is an absurd notion at best.

ok, first of all the main question is "do we live in anarchy?'

we wandered away from the dudes original idea

and yes we do live in anarchy

in all this world
there is not one major ruling government
and that in turn bringsforth wars and famine and all that good stuff
and anarchy is not a government
its the lack of government

(by the way its libarata)(not liberta)

Das Kaptal, God means different things for different people. Even if you don't beleive in God, you perhaps still need to have faith in something, which prevents your life from being meaningless. The search for meaning in life is as much relevant in this 'modern' age as it was 5 thousand years ago

Athiesm is the absence of faith it free's you from your pre existing religious dogma.

My life is quite meaningful without god I find your statement quite absurd the Idea that we need to accept superstition to live a meaningful life is quite pathetic. I would agree that the search for the meaning of life is relevant however it is best done by using rational means. Claiming that the sun rises because Ra deems it so or that "God" controls ones life is nonsensical dribble.

note what I said:
quote:

Thus as I presume you agree too, you need to have meaning in your life-that meaning can be beleiving that the sun rises because of Ra, or that all terrorists must be killed to stopping global warming.

I dont have faith in anything I believe in something based on evidence faith is acceptance based little or no evidence hence I dismiss it.

You may consider that to be particularly nihilistic so be it.

hmm, as a sidenote perhaps too much reliance on logic limits a person. There is much more to life than dull evidence based analysis and logic.

Athiesm is beneficial in that you discover life for yourself. It is not beneficial when you rule out the possibilty of life having any divinity, any mystery.

Evidence based analysis and logical thought are the reasons for humanities evolution from hunter gatherer and feudal societies. It has been the driving force for change in a society it's the reason you and I can sit here and enjoy this pleseant conversation.

Athiesm is benificial because it refuses to accept superstition as a credible force within the universe. I dont rule out the possibility of mystery there are things that cannot be explained however science and rational thought will eventually prodce the answer's to these questions. However divinity is a completely useless and over used concept.
