Coral Sea a biodiversity hotspot for sharks


To those of you who eat Shark-fin soup and  shark parts all the time! The sharks are going to get the last laugh!  Please Read on:

To read a new article entitled, "Coral Sea a biodiversity hotspot for sharks " please click on the following link: http://www.australiangeographic.com.au/journal/coral-sea-a-biodiversity-hotspot.htm

From the article:
"THE CORAL SEA, OFF Australia's northeast coast is one of the last remaining places brimming with large predatory fish such as sharks and tuna, a study released on Saturday found." How it disturbs me when I see the phrase, "one of the last" used in reference to another form of life on this planet! What does this say about our species???  How much longer is it going to take some people on this planet to get it??? If the sharks on this planet disappear there is a very good chance that many forms of life on this planet (including our species) is going to disappear permanently!
Are those of you who live in countries where shark fishing is out of control, not listening to the experts of science because you are so arrogant and selfish and greedy that you will not stop what you are doing to save all life on this planet, just so you can have a bowl of tasteless shark-fin soup at your tables?  You may think you can do anything you want in this World, however the joke is going to be on all of you who eat shark-fin-soup and other parts of sharks! Shark fin soup, has been found to be toxic to the human body as has eating shark parts!
"There is no accepted scientific evidence that shark fin provides any medicinal or health benefit!! In contrast, studies show that shark is among the highest levels of toxic mercury that is found in fish. And, that mercury can be very hazardous to our health."  This last statement comes from experts at:

So before you eat that next bowl of shark-fin soup or next piece of shark meet, think about what you are doing! Think of the grief and pain and suffering not only you have caused the sharks of this World, but also the grief and suffering you are going to cause your family and loved ones when they are at your funeral,because you have  selfishly refused to listen to scientific experts concerning the toxicity of shark-fin soup and shark meat!  This is what is going to happen to your body because of the  mercury poisoning it is going to experience, because you refuse to stop eating shark-fin soup and shark parts: Can you live with these?

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed



Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia



A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed



Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein



The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi



The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller



Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns



Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama



Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -



Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being



The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
