It is obvious to any privileged human being who has had the luxury of some form of education, that at the rate our species is going, with the destructive capability we possess, we run the great risk of not existing for very much longer.
There is not much hope for the future of the Human race as it stands today : potential pandemics, wars raging between neighbouring nations, the war on terrorism and the rebuilding of nations, the instability of the Arab nations, climatic changes through the increase of natural disasters, the global warming effect of industrial emissions, poisoning of the oceans with the chemical industry’s waste products and the shipping industry’s petrochemical dumping and the continuation of nuclear arms testing. The disappearance of forested areas, the destruction of wildlife’s natural habitats for farming purposes, over harvesting of oceanic life, the list goes on and on….

The human ability to conquer their fears, has always been a defining attribute. If we can control our fears, we can face and overcome all sorts of obstacles. Once humans feared volcanoes, believing them to be the houses of spirits and deities. We do not subscribe to that school of thought today. Once humans feared natural disasters as being the punishments of deities, this too is proven to be suspicious folly. Rain, wind, and lightning not to mention the Sun, the moon and stars, have all at some time been the reasoning for the existence of supernatural beings who are in control of our destiny. The reasoning at the time was sound enough, humans although not as advanced as humans perceive themselves to be today, were proportionally intelligent enough to come to the conclusion that if you can control something, you must be superior to it. If something in your environment controls your movements or inhibits your ability, it must be superior to you. As humans are hierarchical in their nature, then something superior to us had to be nothing less than a deity. Even though this train of thought seems archaic and somewhat tribal. It is the same train of thought that we technologically advanced humans accept today as being correct.
We do not fear the volcano, the elements and the splendours of our night skies. Science and technology have proven them to be natural phenomena. We do however still have the need to believe in a superior being. We need to be able to have something to use as an excuse to continue to live our lives we the way we do today. We cannot have a society based upon the laws of chaos; our hierarchal structure gives us the scale on which all things are based. We as every other living creature upon this planet have to fight in some way to survive. From the searing desert heat to the chill factors at the poles, from the shantytowns of the poor to the penthouses of the rich. All these environments have there own unique problems that have to be overcome. The one parameter, which is universal in all environments where humans flourish, is hierarchal structure.
The problem faced by creatures that have become the dominant species of a planet is a simple one. When the known environment is under the control of a single human or a collective, whom do they have to answer to ? On the way to greatness, humans had to invent an entity that controlled everything in the universe. This was the only thing the ruler or rulers of a country or empire would bow to.
Human early civilisations bought on the need for rules and structure so they could flourish and spread. Powerful intelligent leaders of the early civilisations knew that if they were to control, it would be through fear. When the fear of death by your physical superior is no longer an actual threat, then fear of what your master bows to, must be appropriately worse as it could happen at any time. Gods came and went, some societies were not ready for only one God to rule absolutely everything and so Gods of Gods were invented to continue hierarchal structures. With the introduction of one supreme being, an entity so great it could see all, know everything, dispense absolute retribution at a whim and represent the absolute immaculate human, the total accomplishment of absolute power. Everything that humans held to be good and true, stemmed from this entity, as it was perfect in everyway. Rules passed to a select few under mysterious circumstances, gave rise to what has governed this world since the time the human race began.
Blind faith.

When you think about it, you as an intelligent human being, capable of so much, are asked to believe that an entity that we at this present moment in time cannot understand, is controlling everything in the universe. Not only does it control an innumerable amount of star systems and their entire contents, but it controls everything you as an individual have and will be subjected to. It will then make you give an account of your life and reward you accordingly. Due to the necessity of this entity to embrace everything good, the creation of an evil counterpart duly followed. This counterpart could not represent as an immaculate image as the one representing good. It had to be fallible. Something that represented good was to be the Achilles heel. This threat of an eternity in companionship with this evil counterpart is now the accepted school of thought. Humans were responsible for the existence of words that mean good. Humans are also responsible for the creation and meaning of words that mean evil. Heaven and Hell or the equivalents thereof are creations of humans. Angels and demons are creations of the hierarchal structure. But you as an individual are expected to believe these things not only exist, but you are to fear them. Iconic-based religious schooling tells you to fear something that you know for a fact cannot exist.
Humans fear everything they cannot explain, and they need a scapegoat for everything. If something wonderful happens in your life then you thank your god for being so kind. If something terrible happens then it is put down to either mysterious workings by your god or the actions of the evil counterpart. In reality when things go either really well for people in life or really bad, is the result of a chain of events that you may or may not have been a contributing factor. We as humans are born into an alien environment than the one where our lives began. We begin to breath a mixture of gases we call air and the first time this air enters our physical beings, our lives as an infant begin. We are not asked if we want to be born. We then try to survive as best we can until our physical frames can no longer function properly and we eventually cease to exist. That’s it. There is no more and no less to life than that.
Humans are fallible. We are not immortal. We want to be immortal. We so desperately need the promise of immortality, that we are willing to bow and worship icons and ideals. Without this immortality reward at the end of a long and hard life, most humans would rather end their existence by their own hands now, as their futures are not going to change in the very near future if at all. So why should they ? The thought of immortality not being the case when you cease to exist as a human being, is a dangerous and frightening thought. Dangerous and frightening if you still believe in the need for the entire religious movement as it stands today. The removal of all religious behaviour in the world would bring on the end of humankind. Without the safety and comfort of what religion offers and had to offer to exist, humans would revert back along the evolutionary ladder. The reintroduction of the laws of the jungle would mean the annihilation of many cultures, and eventual extinction of the human race. What is needed is a simple, logical solution to the problem.
Too many great nations have used too much time to invent long and complicated solutions to global problems as not to offend anyone who is involved in the problem.
Simplicity is the answer. Going to the root of the problem and changing the foundations of all cultures is what is required. Small changes at this level will expand exponentially as to give every society that exists today, a chance to start over, and still have all the ideals of their own religious convictions intact. It removes the need for one global faith. It means that every religious movement that exists today can exist tomorrow and function basically in the same way as it has always done and was invented to do. This will also bring around the question for the need of some religious movements to exist. The society, which allows the existence of the movement, will also be the one to make the decision for it’s continuation or demise.
Humans need to be in control of the future of mankind. Where accepted religious convictions leave questions unanswered in a veil of mystery and the unknown. A simple solution can give you answers to all of these questions too. Answers to global problems here and now, answers to potential global problems too. The simple solution gives the need for weapons to be a critical part of our future. Human folly and wishful thinking would try to give a solution that meant the cessation of all wars by the abolition of weapons. The cessation of wars is attainable with weapons and the reasoning is very logical and simple too.

What we do still fear is the future. We cannot control the future, therefore we fear it. Humans need the ideology of hope to reason our existence. We need hope. This solution will give us the hope we need. We had it all the time. Now is the time to use it. Do not think that we can wait. Our history shows us. Humans suffer needlessly every time.

This project draws a heavy price. What you are about to read will ask you to dismiss everything you have ever believed in. Then ask you to believe in the necessity of its folly. We as a species trying to survive, have become our own worse enemies. This book will prove this is a necessary evolutionary step. We are destroying the very fabric of life around us. Our natural given environment is suffering, thus the environment of every living creature on this planet is in danger of extinction. Even our own human influenced environment is suffering. We are destroying the very buildings we create with the pollution we produce. Our needs and wishes far surpass our environments. We constantly want more and more of everything, when others want nothing more than to be allowed to live. Human ego exacts a price. The price will be our existence.

What is one of the most common wishes of children throughout the world ? World peace and an end to all illnesses, so they never have to needlessly lose a loved one again. Most humans know what it means to a child to lose someone they have loved with all their being. We all lose loved ones for the wrong reasons. The loss is hard to cope with. Not every human has had the privilege of receiving love. Humans have an incredible ability to accept what life has to give us. Even when this means the death of another Human life becomes part of the accepted environment without remorse. Human life has to have a purpose. Without it, we may as well destroy ourselves now.

Evolution in measured in stages. Human life is measured in this way too. Humans have taken the first steps of awareness. Now let us take the first step into Human self-awareness. Because we demand the existence of hope in our lives, we have always looked for a better existence than that, we are experiencing. Humans have invented the concept of what a heaven must be like. Every human who has ever contemplated this, is sure that it is better than living here on earth. Humans invented the existence of this heaven out of necessity. To give it an image humans can understand. We express it in a human manner, following human values, and human structures. For heaven to exist it has to have a creator. This creator could not be a human. This is beyond our capabilities. Thus deities and their respective religions were born.
Variations arose purely because we do not all live in the same immediate local environment. Those unique environments created the uniqueness of each religion. All religions preach love and well being for the faithful. Few practise this. The assurance and well being a true believer of a deity feels, is the way they want everybody to feel. To such an extent that our species are willing to kill fellow humans until they understand just how good this feeling is.

This solution can give you the same assurance and feeling of well-being. The only difference between this solution and the one you may have found elsewhere is the lack of a deity worship. Worship of a deity is unnecessary. It is a human trait invented by humans for the soul purpose of control by fear. This solution will put the hope of mankind back into its rightful position. In the hands of humans. It is not an impossible task, this solution requires faith too. Faith in ourselves. We did not have any influence in the creation of humans, but surely we ought to have an influence in our future. The same amount of faith we put in our present religions, should be given to the will of the human species to survive.

We prove time and time again, if we believe in something, there is no task we are not willing to undertake and overcome to show our convictions. We believe that a bridge will support us every time we cross it, or we would not use the bridge. We believe the engineers using their own restrictive mortal capabilities, are correct in their assumption of the materials needed to build the bridge. When a human who has the title of engineer, tells you that the bridge will hold your weight, we accept it readily. Or there would not be any bridges.

Show the same faith in our ability to secure our future.

Humans lack any form of natural protection. We use tools. Other species on this planet utilise tools too, but none in comparison to us. Our intelligence is our primary form for defence and separates us from the other species on this planet. We are not superior to these creatures, we are just better equipped to survive in different environments through the use of our intelligence. In fact if you look at any living organism on this planet, they are the at the very pinnacle of their own evolutionary ladder to survive as well as they do in their own environments. They live in a food chain. We do not. They need their forms of defence and attack purely to survive in their given local environments. We do not. Yet they do not kill each other needlessly.

Be thankful our ancestors ventured out of our previous environment. Humans are like all other living creatures on the planet with the ability of motion, we are explorers. We are the only mammalian species that can transcend all barriers between different environments. We can survive the heat of the deserts and the bitterly cold conditions of the polar regions. We can survive temporarily in alien environments too. Humans can enter the void of outer space and the deepest oceans. Due to this we have always put ourselves above all other creatures on earth. Humans are as much part of the animal life on earth as the mightiest elephant or the humblest insect. We have just evolved into the dominant species, even with all of our physical limitations.

Humans are fiercely proud of all our achievements, proud to boast of our intelligence, yet we kill each other for all the wrong reasons. War teaches us one useful thing. The need for defence. Without defence our species would perish. We have mastered the art of defence to such an extent that we can extinguish the very existence of every living species on this plant, millions of times over. We wrongly use the principle of the need for defence. All armed forces throughout the world defend borders. These are human defined borders. We made the natural mistake of thinking the world had to be split up into regions. Human defined regions. We have always concentrated our defences of our own local environment. This governs who and what believe to be true, so why not? The solution to this problem as one of many, is to make humans aware that our local environment is the ENTIRE planet.

We still need to defend ourselves, but now the enemy we face is not another human being and human belief, it is the unknown threats we will face in our future. We have so many challenges to face, both terrestrial and extra terrestrial. Viruses still kill humans everyday, the likelihood of a devastating impact from another celestial body etc. There are many threats to the survival of our species. Do not let humans be the reason for our despise. Although not in our immediate future, the necessity to leave this planet will arise. Thus our future thus lies in the exploration of our universe.

This book is based on many things, human history of achievements, human behavioural observations etc. Realising of course it can only be written within the spectrum of the collective knowledge of humans at this time. I am not asking you to believe in great unexplainable concepts. I am asking you to believe in the only thing we humans have. We have it every second of our existence, ourselves. I am asking you to believe in something you can see, feel, ask questions to and receive answers, and something you as an individual can influence. Something that you can understand no matter who you are. Even though different people will interpret the solution differently, the essence of it cannot be misunderstood.
This is survival. Not survival of the strongest. Survival for every human being.

There is no entity that is all forgiving, all knowing, ever-present etc. If there were such an entity, why should it bother with a self-destructive species, like humans? No entity will give you eternal life in the heaven of your choice. The universe teaches us that even from the tiniest organism we can see to the stellar giants, death is inevitable. Immortality is a human wish. Only a mortal being can wish for immortality. Being born of human thought, immortality is what the human race must endeavour to pursue. We know the answer to immortality is not available here on earth. Logic depicts that we must search elsewhere. We know the vastness of the universe; we also accept that we will not be able to do this in our own lifetime. It will take generations of humans to achieve universal exploration. We cannot achieve any of this, if we do not stop trying to eradicate every living thing on this planet.

The book gives an acceptable logical solution to, amongst others, the following subjects :

The meaning of life
Why are we here?
Where did we come from?
Why Humans are the way we are.
Why Deity worship arose.
Why Deity worship was a necessity.
Why Deity worship needs to be changed.
How the world’s population can achieve the ultimate goal of peace, without the loss of a single human life.
A description of what our future could hold.
A solution to the transitional period caused by the lack of Deity worship.
How to understand and cease the repression of all people.
How to unite EVERY nation.
Explain the true equalities between the sexes.

All of these questions can be answered by the simple logical interpretation, of one human who found out what true love is about, it’s about surviving as best you can and giving your children the best possible hope for a brighter future.

This is the reasoning of one human, who on a journey through life, found understanding through experiencing true love for the first time. How can a solution born out of spirit of true love, not give hope for a future? Every member of the Human race can share this feeling, it can also be a prominent foundational parameter, helping to secure the existence of the human race in the future. Answers born of love, have to be the best answers a human could ask for.

Read this book with an open mind, and it will open your eyes.

Some people believe that as an individual they cannot make a difference. We have been taught by democracy the influence of many. An individual reached the solution. I truly believe that this solution can make one of the most prolific differences in the history of our species. I truly believe that the influence of one truth, is greater than any other influence. As does every deity fearing individual. It will show that humans can save the human race, not a God. Before you judge me and the solution contained in the text. Read it ALL, then, and only then can you judge it to be true or just another false message of hope given to mankind by a fool. I do this to ensure that the people who have shown me what true love means, have the best future possible, after all that is what we all want for our offspring. Our future is their present, never forget that.
