Classified under Ramblings:  I am now at a stage in my life of deciding whether or not to eliminate my incessant reading of the over abundant dispatches that fill the bulk of today’s media reports.  For myself, the constant fixation of narratives about the death and destruction of human beings, cultures, religions, environments and governments, along with the idiotic decisions and infighting of world leaders has become a wound in the spiritual atmosphere of life.  Darwin may have been correct in his theory of evolution when it pertains to the nonhuman existence and evolutionary growth of life, but for the human species, he is totally circumferential.  The concept of natural selection, that being the gradual elimination of undesirable traits over time which eliminates inferior species and behaviors has not shown any viability when considering the human population and its continued embrace of ignorance and intolerance. A lack of understanding and total lack of enlightenment combined with an unwillingness to recognize and respect differences in opinions or beliefs of others will never change, as we all can acknowledge from the constant barrage of social media .

The best that can be said is that though we do have the capability of advancing those secular elements of our existence in the fields of medicine, technology and science, the human population has not advanced itself beyond its penchant for the destruction of others and by applying the history of human ignorance going back thousands of years, chances are, we will never develop beyond the stage of cave dwellers.  Neanderthal man continues to survive and prosper in today’s world.
