An Interesting Forecast for the US...

Original post made by Chris, Birdland, on May 1, 2009

As a preface to the following videoclip, I am reminded of a conference I attended when I was with a Big 4 consulting company. The conference was entitled "Survival of the Fittest" and it was referring to survival of companies. One of the key speakers was, of all people, the head of the SF Zoo who presented an analogy about which mid-sized mammals over time would be survivors in periods of severe change.

He asked the audience what mammals they thought would be the survivors in periods of rapid change. Many people guessed that they would be the muscular and swift ones like lions, leopards, etc. This zookeeper's answer was that it would be the ones that could adapt to many types of environment and could produce the MOST OFFSPRING. His answer was the coyote.

Now remember the OFFSPRING info above and check out this sobering video.

But what's YOUR personal point of view? Is being a Muslim a bad thing? Do we equate this religion with the extremists? During the "Holy Crusades" we could have equated Christianity with blood shed. Why does this always have to be a question/argument/debate about who's religion is the 'right' one? Why is it always Christians vs Muslims? How can we learn not throw more fuel on this fire? Could we post an article from the internet which shows religious harmony? I am neither Christian nor Muslim...but I pray to Jesus. Here is my prayer: "Jesus, save me from your followers"
