“Men prepare a meal for enjoyment, and wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything”
Ecclesiastes: Read this book. Live this life. Know these Words.
The fundamental book on futurology and the art of predictions has been written in the last part of the 3rd century Before Christ, a book of the Jewish Ketuvim, one of the three sections making up the Hebrew bible and part of the Old Testament: Ecclesiastes.
Nothing is new under the sun says Ecclesiastes, what happen yesterday will happen tomorrow. All the actions of man to build a better world or to prolong their life in even are inherently vain, futile, empty, meaningless, temporary, transitory, fleeting or mere breath, as the lives of both the wise and foolish men end and will always end in death. Wisdom, enlightenment is merely a mean for a well-lived earthly life; there is no eternal, mystical or spiritual meaning to it. In light of this senselessness, one should enjoy the simple pleasures of daily life, such as eating, drinking, and taking enjoyment in one’s work.
All people all people face death says Ecclesiastes; the world is full of risks, both political and economic, yet life is better than death, and we should enjoy life when we can. Men should enjoy life, but should not be greedy. No one knows what is good or wrong for humanity says Ecclesiastes; like for yesterday, humanity is still marching toward its grave. Righteousness and wisdom escape us. Mortals should take pleasure when they can, for a time may come when no one will.
The natural laws of the Universe are ruling our lives and mankind destiny, not whatever form of gods or heavenly entities. In 2014, like forever since the origins of man, religions, in the name of God will kill even more people; there will be more wars and more natural disasters that have nothing to do with either good or evil.
Your future, you are the one creating it. You create your own future, your own misery. God has nothing to do with it.
There is only one thing good for man: life itself!
Make it enjoyable.
