The opportunity that I cannot miss

For the whole day, I was attending my online classes since the physical class will be only intended for laboratory and exams. We have been listening to our professors all day, while I was seeking help for my friends online. Actually, this was my first time seeking such huge help because I was really in a position wherein I had to take whatever was on the table. I just cannot believe how fast they wanted to help me. I’m just grateful that I have friends like them. No, not a friend anymore, but a family.

This will be day 2 of the question-and-answer portion where I chose the questions myself. Thus, I think these questions are worth answering since they are not nonsensical. Moreover, I wanted to expand my opinion on each question, express my perspective, and let you know what I think about them.

Why are some belief systems called “mythologies”, while others “religions”?

It is not new to every one to hear the mythologies since ancient times. We usually see two famous mythologies in movies, characters, and books. Greek mythology and Roman mythology have been widely known for their supernatural powers and hierarchies. It allows people to objectively believe that it actually exists. Meanwhile, religions are supernatural beliefs with proven facts, and the existence of God was recorded in books.

It’s not hard to believe that religions are dominating the world’s point of view. Thus, it has sufficient shreds of evidence that it actually exists with the doctrine embedded in every fiber of the story. Aside from that, the religious books have multiple writers, testifying about the miracle of God to its people. On the contrary, mythology hasn’t proven anything since it’s just a myth that people created out of creativity. So now, religion is the believable one compared to a mythological belief system.

In a culture that teaches its people to respect their elders, must one still show respect in a case where the elder is unworthy of being respected?

The culture is definitely hard to go against because the people involved have been living and practicing it over the years. However, since the elder is unworthy of being respected, then I think we can conclude that he should not be respected in a way how that elder disrespected others too. The concept here is what you do to others will do to you as well. Then, we can say that this particular elder should not be deserved to be recognized.

It’s hard for a culture that has been respecting an elder is a tradition like in the Philippines. We are taught to be respectful at all times to our elders whoever they are, regardless of family or non-family. However, it will come a time when an elder is too rude or below the belt that it has a tendency to disrespect him out of nowhere. Although elders are quite old enough, still they have to live and shouldn’t think that they are superior to others. This means that in a culture where elders are highly respected, they lived up to it worthy of respect.

Is it better to die fighting for your beliefs or to sit patiently waiting for an opportunity to induce change?

We commonly say that we need to change for the better. But the change starts within and when that happens, our environment will start to change as well. We tend to focus on the outside without assessing whether we are capable of handling changes. It’s delusional to think that we are pursuing change not knowing why we should pursue it. Like, the concept of change must be according to the reality of life rather than the ideology that it will help others.

Thus, the change will not happen without someone doing for it like when you are sitting patiently for change. I don’t think it will happen the way you perceive it. So it’s better when you center your focus to find where you can offer the change so that it will come and happen. Moreover, I think sitting patiently will be just an excuse to be just a lookout for that things will happen next.

About the second question, I think it's because superiority exist especially in Filipinos. Some elders would rather implement that they should be respected when in fact, they can't do it for the young ones. There's something wrong about the culture.

Pwede pang Miss Universe na questions 🤣.. Galing.. But true.. If we don't change, the world won't too... And about the respect.. Regardless of where we are, or the people we are dealing with. We should show respect to everyone. It's how our parents taught us..and it's one of the good conduct we are applying in our country..
