So, payingpeterback.com was finally retired. I had owned it for nearly 4 years. The original idea was that sometimes you have to rob Peter to pay Paul. Well, we were going to pay him back. The blog quickly turned into my blog where I rambled on about this and that but mostly science related things in recent years.
That’s where this new domain comes in: ilovebeinghuman.com. Think about it. Sure you can be proud to live in your state or your country. Maybe you have pride regarding where your ancestry lies. That’s all fine and dandy but at the end of the day it’s about being a human being.
I chose this name because of a campaign I saw about loving your ethnicity. That’s a double bladed sword really. I think everyone should be proud of who they are but careful not to boast their superiority over anyone else. A football rivalry? Sure. Battle of the bands? Yep! When it comes to saying you’re a better person than the next because of race, gender or religion then I draw the line. That’s nothing but asking for trouble.
So, enjoy being a human being as we all are. If you’re reading this you’re human (and a googlebot). Love it because in the cold, vast enveloping darkness, all we have is each other to see it through. Love being a human because we’re so very lucky to have this opportunity at this point in time to understand the world around us in such great detail. No other animal is capable.
So, join me in love for the human race. We could be our own greatest enemy but we are also our own greatest ally.
