Will we progress from this into…
Humans, even at this point of their ongoing evolution, could best be described as ‘Killer Apes’! Why do I say that?
Let’s face it, our world is filled with war as well as the threat of war, and killing other humans and taking their resources seems to have become, or perhaps always has been, the national sport.
Of course, fights between nations have gone on for millennia. Oceans of blood have been spilled! Not content with that, some nations have made a determined attempt to conquer and control the whole world. Rome comes to mind. More modern examples are Hitler’s Germany and, currently, the United States of America.
And of course, humans are still evolving. A nuclear war would put an end to our orderly evolution and those who survive it will be affected by the radiation. It is, therefore, entirely possible that what would emerge would begin to look like the lower image.
Listen, I freely admit that I don’t see humans through rose-colored glasses. My feelings about humans are very contradictory. Often, when I see what they do, I am horrified and I fear them greatly. It seems that, lead by people like Pol Pot or Hitler, there is no depravity or brutality that is beyond them.
Look closely at the face of the gorilla. Do you think it is angelic or satanic? I can see a head like that comfortably sitting on the shoulders of many humans: Mao, Hitler, George W Bush, Tony Abbott, etc.
Occasionally a few humans stand head and shoulders above all others. You know who they are: Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Buddha, Jesus, Hugo Chavez, those who fought against slavery or who invented life-saving medicines and medical procedures, etc..
Unfortunately, the ‘goodies’ are small in number compared with those who have caused great suffering to mankind and massive damage to our beautiful Planet.
How can we bring our better nature to the forefront of our evolution before nuclear war destroys our world? Certainly not by supporting war, greed, violence, dishonesty, depravity, etc.
Only we, the thinkers and the carers, can save our world.
Time is running out!
