Increased evil, trouble and diseases OR increased awareness of their presence in our days????
Do you think our society is more violent than before? Do you think we are sinning more than the people in the past? Don't you think most of the diseases, the community betrayals and conspiracies have been there ever since the creation? There is a theory I came across during the study of non-communicable diseases and violence: they have all been there ever since creation but we are just having increased awareness of their presence in these days. This is partly due to improved diagnosis measures, science and public health. This means that most of the evil we see as new or increasing in our days might have been the past in the same amount or even worst but people were not aware of them.
I have tried to think of this theory in our spiritual world and societal peaceful living. You see, practices like homosexuality, joining Illuminati, sexual workers and pornography are among the new sins according to our community judgments, but the question is;, didn’t these things happen in the past? Don't we remember the homosexuals of Gomorrah and Sodom? How about sex workers? Don’t you remember the woman who cleaned Jesus using her hair? How about pornography? Don't you remember the acts of Babylonians and other non-Jewish nations that could openly sleep or rape women in the open??? What sin is new that has not been part of human race??
Talking about diseases, they have always been here with us but we did not know. Most of them would be thought of as witchcraft but they were diseases. About violence, ever since the time of Cain and Abel, there has always been violence in people. People have murdered each other throughout histories; brothers have betrayed their brothers or parents selling their children. Everything we call evil or that we have just realizes recently has always been there. And actually, the worseness of our times also is not certain. Since our populations increased and biodiversity too, our acts, our sins followed the trend but this may not mean they increased or became worse. Thus considering the context of now and of the past, then we could even be doing better than we think.
What is the cause of this deception? Maybe because of civilization and improved science, most of what was normal in the past was diagnosed and seen as evil, disease or violence. Yeah, that is the answer, what was normal in the past looks abnormal now because of some contexts and thus we wrongly perceive increased evil and violence. I was looking at the trends of HIV, when the prevalence is high, it may mean that people are aware of the values of testing and thus national registers capture them. Also, it may mean that they are taking ARVs and this living long. So the increase in prevalence may actually mean the best thing happening in the country. Don't you think it is the same explanation for what seems to us that our world is getting worse in terms of morality and living together ethics?
What is the point? Please, investigate into my insight? Is there no sense here? And then if there is sense here, there is a need to have and maintain HOPE in our world, we are getting better day by day. With this new hope of cleanliness and righteousness, then we can believe in good and ultimately achieve it. The common news and belief that we are not getting any better could be the big cause of our doom. Keep hope arrive, tomorrow is better.
