Really. Did you?

Try reading "Watership Down" or "To Kill a Mockingbird"

Ishmael is good read. ;-`)

Ishmael is a 1992 philosophical novel by Daniel Quinn. It examines mythology, its effect on ethics, and how that relates to sustainability. The novel uses a style of Socratic dialogue to deconstruct the notion that humans are the pinnacle of biological evolution. It posits that human supremacy is a cultural myth, and asserts that modern civilization is enacting that myth with dangerous consequences. It was awarded the $500,000 Turner Tomorrow Fellowship Award.

Your thread title is so depressing OP. For a while, I thought we were in 1830.

WTF?! Mythologies effects on ETHICS and how that relates to SUSTAINABILITY? What a bunch of freakin' Godless earth-worshipping bullshit.

Did you ever read a book? Shakespeare read the family Bible - which is stil on display in his house in Stratford-on-Avon. THAT book influenced MOST of his writings. He didn't need a freakin' Turner Tomorrow Fellowfuck Award.

 Quoting: C. 285665


Watership Down I remember from school I found depressing. I started out reading biographies as a child. Except for one book called A Beaver's Story. I read every biography I could get my hand on. I rarely read fiction, but the last fiction book I've read that wasn't a disposable thin paperback was Uncle Tom's Cabin. And that was a long time ago. Life, IMHO, is too short for fiction unless it's Shakespeare or poetry. There are lots of non-fiction books that are very good.

Frankenstein is very good also, and the Moby Dick - well if you don't do anything else, read the first chapter. It is the greatest American novel after all.

Re: Did you ever read a book?
this forum is something like the digital inscription of God's rationale--were he to mercifully exist--for effacing humanity.

for those of you who have never read a book, I am calling you all the living embodiment of the argument against humanity's continued existence
