Does Media Reflect us or are we directed by the Media ?!!

I know this was a very long time ago but I couldn’t write till now so I will explain my argument in this post why I think that Media directs the society and doesn’t reflect the society.

My first point is against TV shows and social media – can you name few things that you have and Idea about but actually you have never personally experienced ?

Movies and Media make you know a lot about things you will never experience in your life just think for a second if this things aren’t true means that most of your Ideas are not.

I mean like :

  • you think you know Muslims but maybe you don’t have any Muslim friends
  • Maybe you are an atheist because of what you hear about the evolution theory but most probably you never red the book
  • Maybe you believe in God’s existence cause of what you hear at church but yet you never red the bible yourself .
  • ChartsMaybe you think that USA is the greatest country in the word yet you never searched the reasons why and saw the statistics yourself

and the list goes on forever.

Media sells you the idea the you need to trust them because they are the experts so you listen to someone who knows how to use logic to sell his idea , charismatic , clever and uses few book references and scientific expressions and BOOM!!! you believe him and start living by his words , ever thought what if he was wrong ?

My second Point is for movies. They are made so well that they make you believe that whatever they present is true . Come on some people believe in Aliens because of movies but yet they never red a book about space.

Haven’t Most of us when we were young tried to do some karate moves after watching a martial arts action movie ?!

wait haven’t the children of today try to dance , wear , talk , act , think , etc… like their favorite movie stars

Is that something you would like your children to do or to learn ?

My third point is about Music and that would be a short one most of the top hits talk about sex, sexual desire, money , power and self love . Imagine that today’s teenagers when they are trying to be romantic they send a song called ” Am in love with the shape of you ” to the girls they love and surprisingly girls find it really romantic.

Girls today learn from songs that if they aren’t sexy they ain’t worth to be loved

Boys learn they if they dont have enough money and power sexy girls will never be interested in them

That’s why always the jerks are more popular.

and of course you must have noticed the sluttier is  a pop star  the more fans she gets again relating fame with sex and money .

That shouldn’t me a normal thing our children dance the same way .

Ask your kids what would they do if they got really rich and it will shock you.

Why I am ?

the biggest question that never left my mind , Why I am? why do I exist ? does life have a meaning ? do I have a purpose or do I just exist cause am an accident of the universe ?

The problem that this question can’t be answered individually I could never know why I am ? if i don’t know why we  are ?  us , the universe , nature and everything that exists . I have searched for answers in science , religion and philosophy and the result was that I had more questions I was never satisfied with any answer I found .

Scientists like to believe that all of the universe was an accident something came out of nothing and that kills the question why ? I mean if that’s the case then there is no purpose for our existence and if there is no purpose then there is no value so why should we care , why should we be good and how to decide what’s good ? believing that the whole universe is an accident leaves you with more questions to ask than answers you get.
religionsReligious People like to believe that God created everything with an intelligent design  and after that he created the rules of what’s good and what’s bad and for us to prosper we need to follow those rules and the purpose of life is to be good to go to heaven or be bad and get punished in other ways the purpose of life is to prove to God that you deserve to be in heaven. Well that gives more questions than answers as well and my biggest question of all why would God do all this to test us anyway we wouldn’t be here if he didn’t create us from the first place ?   but yet I always stop and think that maybe the problem isn’t the religion as it is the people and how they understand the religion and God.

 

thinker-at-the-gates-of-hell.jpgPhilosophers like to believe that everything is right and everything is wrong at the same time philosophy gives you a way to think but can’t give you an answer it shows you how to think and choose for yourself but can’t tell you rules or what’s wrong and what’s right cause it has many variables if you are very good and philosophy and logic you can convince the same people with two contradicting ideas at the same time and make them really confused I love philosophy but it never satisfy you with answers actually it makes you asking question like crazy.

 

quote-einI know that in this post I said what many of us think of and ask , some of us think about it some chose not too as it never ends and no one has answers but I believe that we are missing those answers cause we need all these three parts of life to come together the truth needs to use science , religion and philosophy to show itself to us we should forget the details and thinks about the bigger picture we wont have answers unless we mix science , religion and philosophy I thinks many of you would say that that is not possible and that it doesn’t make sense but actually I believe that it can’t be done by it is already happening we are made of these three combined . Each human being is made from science , religion and philosophy.

You think and learn by using the scientific method , you live by your own philosophy and you have rules that you live by depending on you own morale believes .

You and me we are a mix of all three so is the truth of our existence we can’t know it unless we combine all these three parts of life.

I believe that what science , religion and philosophy explain doesn’t contradict each other , it completes each other put that in mind and everything will start to make more sense.
