    For most of the history of man, he did not know what he looked like. He could see others, but could not see himself. If he thought someone else was not good looking to him, he may have thought, "I might look a lot worse".

    Since he did not see himself with his own eyes, it would seem he was not as likely to be so self absorbed. Also since he was constantly seeing others it would seem he would be more interested in others.

    Considering how selfish our people seem to have become, this seems that this all may be valid.

    Also mankind used to put most of his efforts to providing shelter, clothing and food for his family. Now many men do not even work to provide any of these things. The men that do work, work only a portion to provide the necessary things to live and work much of the time to obtain things that are NOT necessary to live.

    I think this is one reason that so many people are so depressed and not satisfied in life. It is satisfying to work to feed yourself or work to keep yourself warm. It is NOT deeply satisfying to work for a things to have recreation.

    Much of the effort of the people in the US goes toward fantasy football or games instead of real life. We will end up a nation in poverty.

    Philippians 4:8 [Full Chapter] Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

      This was a really good post, Lou! Thanks!

      Amen and amen

      And Philippians 4:8 has been running through my head all day.

        Thanks for posting this, Karl. Lou, great reply.

        Wow. If there is nothing new under the sun then self-absorbed college girls must have existed in ancient times. Maybe it was self-absorbed men--thinking of Narcissus. They certainly have lots more toys to express the love of self in our age.

        Someone was trying to convince me that big agro was a good thing. The person's argument was that, contrary to the word of God, He doesn't provide abundantly, so high-tech farming is necessary to feed the world. It saves modern man from malnutrition. And it freed him up to do many more important things than scratching for a living, like...go to space, make electronics, and cure cancer.

        It's not my intent to digress into the pros and cons of working the land. But on a higher level, only one of those things seems even close to important, and big agro plays a large part in creating the problem in the first place. I bet you can spot it.

        I ponder this frequently: I think this age has far more idols than any previous age. Lou pointed to one: self. As I trip through memory lane, I can see self becoming a bigger and bigger idol every decade.

        I also ponder how the greater ease of supplying basic needs may create more problems than it solves. One thing is for certain: it freed man up. And he hails it a great thing to be able to resume the great work that God put on hold, the Tower of Babel.

          If one reads Genesis they will see that is was Cain that first built cities and civilization.

          The followers of The Lord were shepherds.

          It is civilization that brought on the problems that this man sites. He is claiming that we need civilization to combat the problems that civilization brought on.
