Peaceful Coexistence

Scene from a pond near my house in the morning. Heron and ducks.

Thought from a biologist, “Violence, sexism, and general nastiness are biological since they represent one subset of a possible range of behaviors. But peacefulness, equality, and kindness are just as biological–and we may see their influence increase if we can create social structures that permit them to flourish.”

Kudos to a few of my friends who try to bring civility and thoughtfulness to social media.

But, I think as humans we still have much to learn to just get along.

    THAT’S THE PROBLEM—WITHOUT FAITH IN A LOVING GOD, FEW WANT TO BE LOVING—BIOLOGICALLY OR OTHERWISE! 2ND CORINTHIANS 5: 16-17 —“IN CHRIST,…(YOU) ARE A NEW CREATION…OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY…ALL THINGS ARE NEW!”
