A Letter To Nowhere?

The following letter to the editor was sent to a variety of major English language newspapers in Canada, the USA and elsewhere. Versions of this letter were also sent to a variety of religious organizations. The response has been deafening silence. Not only has no one published the letter but no one has even bothered to contact me by email. In fact my web site statistics for the World Day of Conscience web site would indicate that the newspapers and other organizations that this letter or versions thereof were sent to did not even bother to look at the web site. . .

Dear Editors,

All human beings are invited to respond to the spectacular cosmic symbolism of the total solar eclipse "Eye of God" by observing World Day of Conscience on Wednesday March 29, 2006 and on all future days when this symbolic "Eye of God" metaphorically "looks down from the heavens" above our planet Earth. World Day of Conscience seeks to promote the healthy exercise of human conscience at all levels, from the deeply personal and intimate right through to "global conscience." World Day of Conscience should be observed in ways that call attention to, and seek redress for, any and all forms of injustices and abuses that occur in the world. Special attention should be given to those matters of conscience in the domains of human rights, civil liberties, and social justice, as well as serious environmental and ecological concerns.

All the individuals and groups who choose to observe World Day of Conscience are free to determine the most appropriate ways for them to do so. Religious and spiritual observances are certainly encouraged however non-religious manners of observing World Day of Conscience are also very appropriate. Suggestions for various ways of observing World Day of Conscience are welcomed, as are diverse forms of support for World Day of Conscience. At present the most urgent need for co-operation and support is simply to spread the news about World Day of Conscience as rapidly and as widely as possible to human beings in all parts of the world. Ultimately World Day of Conscience aspires to encourage the regular and healthy exercise of human consciences and to promote the global warming of human hearts world-wide.

I really can appreciate the wonderfull idea of embracing world conscience. Although I do have to express my concerns about the teachings of Mohammed and the strengh and power this belief is gaining in the world. Lets admit, if muslims cannot ditch this guy as their figurehead, then they have no hope of reforming from his BARBARIC ways.
Glad to have happened across you site though.

The idea is good in principle. Personally I would like to see such a day as one on which at least some of us consider how to develop some ecological ethics or rules for conduct in relation to our local and general environment.

A full eclipse is a suitably humbling event that shows (if further showing is needed)that we midgets of the universe are not ever going to be in full control of events.

By giving attention to our environment, and reflecting upon our actions, it may help us develop some better rules of conduct for keeping a foothold on our slippery bit of rock.
