Some have tried some time ago ... Let us quote the Our Father:

"And do not submit us to temptation" changed recently in "And don't let us get into temptation"

When we see what has been done in the name of Christ and even that it is happening within the Christian church (churches without gilding it is quite rare) I do not believe that this aphorism is really taken seriously. .human nature always takes over! : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen:


Absolutely. It is terrible to think that religious conditioning can be an alternative to the neglect of entertainment in our societies. We are not far from the choice between plague and cholera.
Human nature which would always take over, is it not always that which pleases us in our illusions, whether that of eternal religious paradise, of an ecological Eden, of a drug, or of virtual reality d a video game?
So you have to deal with it. The culture that opens us to a whole lot of angles of view and the research of how our universe works seems to me a good palliative to entertainment by channeling our nature.
A well-placed curiosity leads to the acquisition of the most objective knowledge possible, provides us with a better understanding of our situation, puts it into perspective, in addition to giving us keys to solve concrete practical problems, and with the jubilant side of discovery of the unknown that we find on the way.
For the definitive answers to the existential questions, let us leave it, the political ideologues, the prophets and the messiahs have already proved that they are vain and even harmful or even fatal.

"And do not submit us to temptation" recently changed to "And do not let us into temptation"
more literally: "do not carry us into a test" which only makes sense in the context of the entire sentence.
Likewise, there is no Christian church, as if there is harmony among all the denominations. There are interpretations of text, often taken out of context, resulting in loads of "churches" (assemblies) who say Christian. as others would call themselves Buddhists or rationalists. :?

When we listen to the teens of the 1960s and those of today, we can largely assume that the decline was much more than 4 points ...

I do not think that the IQ is really lowered, but rather that like wealth, it has condensed.

The same. Between Ahmed and him, it is necessary to appeal to specialized decryptors. But let us be careful not to "carry us into trial" (sic). : Mrgreen:

You replace "condensed" by "concentrated" or better by the formula "concentration of wealth" ...

Sorry no better!

When we talk about decline in population IQ, this is a statistical average ... so the concentration, condensation or the term you want does not change anything!

And sorry but we see the banks of the various governments and current leaders, the condensation, if it exists, certainly did not happen there! Where is it condensed?

And I still don't understand the analogy with wealth ...
