How can we cultivate courageous, non-violent dialogue between youth and power?
Dear Colleen, I said "power is violence" not "violence is power" (and I wholy agree with you on that), and when it comes time to replace the old model with the new there will be a power struggle (not everyone will want the new model), even if your beautiful smile was selling the new model others would find it equally offensive. As far as the young people on TED, While I believe in thier intelligence and that they will help influence the future (and please understand that I am not trying to put-down theTED youth or say they could'nt learn in anyway), I think a good percentage lack the street smarts and understanding of...let's just say the less priviledged.

Do we 'evolve' during our lifetime ? or do we only evolve as a species by passing on physiological 'lessons learnt' through reproduction ?
How about Epigenetics? We are still learning, and there are still many things unexplained, and I adree that Darwinism is a great lauching point. Yes there are some basic laws that we have come to agree apon, but still new things are discovered all the time that don't always fit and have flaws when it comes to some of those basic theories. Science is always evolving with each new discovery. But where do instincts come from, or feelings of deja vu of a place you've never been but come to find out that a parent or ancester had been there before your birth? Keep your mind open and don't burn all those people at the cross for thinking that not everything in the heavens revolve around the Earth

How does the baby bird know that eating the Monarch Butterfly will make it ill without ever eating it, or that it takes several generations of Monarch Butterflies to complete the migration cycle from Mexico to Canada and back? Those two examples come quick to mind. Many things get passed down in many ways. But as we make the world safer, stupidity gets passed down more and more instead of being eaten by wild animals...

If someone is a good person without believing in god only good choices. Does that make them better or worse in the eyes of god?
Which God? Whose God? What myths and tales we create to make us feel righteous. How we bend words to fit our needs to claim truth and power over others to create hate and war. God is Good, God is Great, and my God can kick your God's ass. If you don't believe like I do then the is no place for you here on Earth or in Heaven. Come on people...really? Is that the hatred your Gods teach? Then your Heaven could be my Hell. Also we prey for God to support us and screw the other guy God created through the miracle of life, wether it be sports, war, or a job interview. Good people are good people as good people, and thier good deeds amplify thier worth. Also people put good people in a position to do horrid things (Sometimes it takes a good person with a gun to deal with a bad person with a gun). Love, hate, love, hate? Man has created so many mixed messages with religion. All I know is that I enjoy living for so many reasons and try to enjoy them with other people around me, but don't f*ck with me...AMEN! :-) P.S. Why would a person who does not believe even worry...Or do you?
