    Best answer: If you really think about balance and harmony with nature, you would have to realize that the first world is on technological life support. All of our gizmos and genetically modified crap is what's keeping us alive, far too many of us to be sustained by the natural resources around us.

    So we create unnatural resources and take what we can from the third world. We mock third worlders in fact we define them negatively as people who have not created first world nations. We look down upon them for their "primitive" ways and rough methods of surviving with natural resources, no waste, no flashy gizmos. When in fact these are the very people who tend to live in harmony with nature and will probably survive after our first world implodes.

  • Atheists, do you believe people can have false beliefs about what is right or wrong or do you believe that it is all subjective and that if?

    Best answer: "Existence exists" is the primary objective fact. To claim that existence does NOT exist is a contradiction. All other facts which are in fact factual come from the first fact.

    So certainly humans can have false beliefs about what is right and wrong.
