What are some ways you believe could unite humanity? I think for starters we should try and just be human, not by reading a book which tells us the best way to be a human, not by trying to find the best system for all humans to go by, no, by simply communing, which basically means to not just communicate but understand as well, which leads to acceptance of others. That was rather general so anything more specific would be welcomed and reading books (regardless of genre) and trying to live by your own system which works for you is always recommended as well.

Nothing unites people like a common enemy. Thats how we started with tiddly little tribes of a dozen people and after several million years ended up with gigantic warring nations.

Bring on the interstellar war.

Yup... interstellar war is the quickest way to unite humanity. First we have to invent interstellar travel, find a hostile alien race and wage war on them. This is not sarcasm, but the sad, sad truth.

A way to unite humanity? Simple.

Gather all around in a gigantic circle, the pope, atheists, christians, catolics, buddists, etc., spark up a humongous fat blunt with some crazy weed.. and pass it around. Pass that shizz, and smoke that shizz.

And that, my friend, is the answer to world peace. No jokes, heh. :)

As there are pessimistic views, there are optimistic views. But the truth is, humanity cannot be united, its imposible, due to culture diversity. Even if.. IF, a huge new gouverment unites all nations..? There will always be revolutionaries.

Now that's an idea! The only way to unite IMO is through mutual respect for said diversity. Replace the competitive culture with a cooperative one. I can't see mankind ever uniting under one banner of God or no God but each to their own and all that doesn't stop us getting along though. Or it shouldn't at least... but it does.

The LSD in the bread makes all the villagers dance in the yard.

Know about it already. Apparitions of the saints and the Virgin Mary as well as alien sightings are all possible to manufacture with this according to the CT. I can see how it could come into play if real.

It could work if everyone converted and became a buddhist.

I agree that mutual respect for diversity would solve one part of the equation, resolving competition over limited resources and eliminating economic disenfranchisement would be the other part.

If you think the international population of earth (as opposed to a few individuals and small communities) could ever achieve "mutual respect for diversity" then I want to know what YOUR smoking ;)

I think Interstellar war is infinatly more likely.

Wait, I thought this interstellar war you spoke of was just going to be a fictionalized enemy to unite us? Not real aliens with laser guns and prison ships?

It'll never happen. Diversity, by definition, entails competing ideals and goals.  The only way to attempt to "unify humanity" would be Saruman's way, by "removing those who oppose us."  But even if you believed in genocide, regardless of whether it were possible to achieve, "imposing unity" would be just another bloody stab at totalitarianism.  As long as there are people living on the world, there's going to be competition, disagreement opposition, and, at times, war.

I am quite certain it will be united, a totalitarian approach no doubt, painful for some. Hopefully splendid for the majority? I only say this because that is simply the way it seems it will go. Since the dawn of civilization humans have slowly been losing freedom for safety as the form of governments have only increased. We used to have tribes, then clans, then kingdoms, then empires, then we will have supra-states, and finally one globalist state. Nothing conspiracy theory about it and it might take a good while to get there but unless something doomsday wipes us out we are almost certain to achieve a one world government. Maybe not the definition of uniting humanity for some but no matter what form of civilization or government we have and live under there will always be personal choices to make on who we will be ourselves as individuals.

Uniting humanity does not have to be solely a political phenomena. As we make individual choices we can choose to help just those within reach after helping ourselves or during and thus those who choose this are already part of a united humanity that has existed since the inception of our species for if there had also not been cooperation, agreement, understanding, and, at times peace, then we would not have survived as a species at all.

Can't wait....
this point is interesing in that Stephen Hawking recently made a comment about how an alien civilisation would most likely to be hostile if they come in contact with us.

What makes you think it can be united??? Just because we're sentient and intelligent, we're still animals.
