All people are born good.

Actually, I think some are born messed up and will stay messed up, sorry to say.

Those of different religions who would persecute us just because of what we believe, murderers who take the lives of others, every type of abuser imaginable who poison the lives of their victims, heads of huge corporations who pollute and mutate our land and food supply for their financial gain, everyone who would inflict any type of evil imaginable upon another... it seems to me that all of them have bought into this lie.

This is simply not true. Most birds have a poor sense of smell already but the smell of a human will not make any bird abandon its young.

All the countless birds that have died from this myth.
I was told that when I was a child. I believed it. I think the myth was probably started by adults who didn't want their kids to bother the baby bird, but wouldn't it be interesting to know who was the first person to say this and all the other myths that have been made up. They all started somewhere with one person opening his or her mouth. The power of speech has many consequences.

That you can run down other humans and call them all sorts of names and consider yourself a Christian. That runs just opposite the teachings of Jesus.

False flag operations. E.G., 9/11. You have your myth, horror, and lie, all in one, and it's by humans to humans.

Myth that there is any point in dedicating your life to collecting possessions or powers. As time comes, and all of it turns into puff...

That a god exists who cares about everyone and that things happen for a reason and that there is justice thereof.
Of course people want to believe this- it works emotionally, at least for an individual. But until it can explain human cruelty or the suffering of billions in poverty or the pain of animals at the hands of people...
Oh, and karma is in the same category. A belief, not a fact.

I really would like to know if 9/11 was a false flag operation / inside job. I have my suspicions, of course, but we are living in a time where it is VERY hard to know anything with certainty. Sometimes I wonder if people knew all the absolute truth about everything what would the world be like? My guess is that the world would be like a big fire ball soaked with blood. It very well probably is a blessing that we do not know everything.
