A time capsule of world changing ideas

This is an interesting little exercise. Seed Magazine asked a bunch of scientists the following question:

“If you only had a single statement to pass on to others summarizing the most vital lesson to be drawn from your work, what would it be?”

It’s like the reverse of that time machine shirt where you have all the information you need to change the world, it’s based on the premise that one day we might need to start all over.

The responses from the scientists are a bit boring and jargony. Like this one:

“The scale of the human socio-economic-political complex system is so large that it seriously interferes with the biospheric complex system upon which it is wholly dependant, and cultural evolution has been too slow to deal effectively with the resulting crisis.”

I think we can do better than that.

So I’m wondering what your answer would be. From your own experience. If you only comment on one of my posts this year, make it this one.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.
