The Evolution of Gods
Have you ever wondered where the human species came from? Science has drawn a line in the sand and called one side Creation, the other Evolution. The debate over which theory is correct, sends the scientists into an eternal spin where each have their own true and false statements depending on who is doing the writing and who is doing the interpreting.
Science is never complete or absolute. As Einstein says, "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction". Similarly, for every theorem that science has written, an opposite can be written to disprove the other, resulting in endless insensible debates.
For questions like the ones raised above, we need to step back from ourselves and look closely at our surroundings and deep within ourselves. There we will learn the true meaning of what it is to be human, our effects on our natural surroundings, and our future as the most dominant species on Earth.
In The Beginning…
If you were asked to identify which country still harbours the most elaborate ecosystem consisting of a variety of small and large animals, jungles and savannas, one would have to answer Africa, the human species birthplace.
Given that the Earth was once covered with these same animals and millions of other mega-fauna species, an interesting question is; what happened throughout the rest of the world to eradicate the larger mammals?
Archaeological evidence shows that there is a direct link between the human expansion out of Africa, and the loss of large species around the world. America was once home to mammoths, sabre tooth cats, ground sloths weighing over three ton, and beavers the size of bears. These and many other animals were all believed to have been killed by hungry migrating humans.
If this was truly the case, two valid questions come to mind. Why is Africa still littered with such animals if this is where we all lived for thousands of years? In addition, how could mere humans travelling on foot with only rocks and spears have such a detrimental effect to the rest of the world's animal population?
During our life spent in Africa, we were successfully evolving alongside the other peaceful animals. As we slowly developed our hunting skills, the animals quickly learnt that we were an enemy to be feared, and knew to flee when they spotted us. After becoming over populated, we spread out across the world to find new homes and easier prey. The animals living in other parts of the world were completely oblivious as to what humans were and what they were now capable of doing. The animals were easy prey against the human hunting machines that had begun taking over the world.
We had the advantages of being completely localised in our beginning and the ability to spread quickly over vast distances, and we were able to fashion instruments of destruction to enhance our superior predatory instincts. These initial signs of superiority significantly characterise a distinction between humans and animals, one that we are exploiting to this very moment in history.
Power and Pace of Our Population
Before the advent of humans, the inhabitants of the Earth experienced five great mass extinctions according to the fossil record. The last of these was caused by a meteor impact that killed off the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago. Many distinguished people now believe that the consequences of human activity, represents the biological equivalent of a modern-day meteor impact.
By studying the fossil record and vast numbers of carefully recorded extinctions in our recent past, we have been able to predicate the rate at which extinctions have been occurring. What the evidence shows, is that extinction rates are now 100 to 1000 times higher due to the spread of humans over the Earth.
Given that the last five mass extinctions took place over thousands of years, the next great extinction could happen over just 100 years. We could go the way of the Do-do bird in only a single human's lifetime. No other species in all of nature's wonderful creations has had such an awesomely detrimental effect on the state of the planet.
It took all of human history for our population to total one billion. It then took only 130 years to reach two billion in 1930. Our third billion was achieved in just 30 years, and the fourth billion in only 15 years. We now total approximately 6 billion people. The night view of Earth above shows where we are most commonly populated.
To get this populated and advanced, we have been following an instinctive plan that has been etched into the very fabric of who we are.
The Human Plan
Nature herself causes many ecological disasters that destroy thousands of animals and plants. However, these natural events are all small and localised against the backdrop of the entire Earth. The continuous cycle of life and death allows Earth to recover quickly from the wrath of nature. However, humans change things permanently.
The human species is following a five-step plan that is being increasingly boosted by population growth that will soon achieve biological annihilation.
These five activities unique to the human species are having a measurable unnatural effect on the bio-diversity of this planet. How severe is this damage really?
After observing the wildlife of Africa, it may appear that the majority of species there consist of the larger mammals. However, after studies were conducted to focus on the smaller species, 50% found were completely new to science. The vast number of distinct species was overwhelming.
When scouring the forests for new species, we could only search up to a few feet above the ground until recently. Only now have we found ways of discovering and examining the life high up in the roof of the rainforests. Similarly, the depths of our discoveries underwater are severely limited due to the extreme pressure of the water. Oceans cover two thirds of the planet, meaning there is an abundance of life below we do not know about.
We have successfully managed to name approximately 1.5 million species. The bio-diversity on Earth is estimated to consist of up to 100 million species. If we are currently witnessing a dramatic and damaging loss of life in the mere 1% of known species, how can we expect to accurately measure the true effects of the human species? The damage from humans must be far greater than we truly understand. We must be losing species of life right now that we have never seen or understood.
The Nature of Humans
Since we are superior to all other creatures, one would assume humans to be the oldest creature and thus the most developed. However, the Bible and science both agree that we are latecomers to the Earth. We are only the last few pages in history. We defy the evolutionary process that governs the development of all other species.
Humans are conclusively different from all of natures other truly wonderful creatures. No other species on Earth is capable of achieving the incredible accomplishments of the human race. No other species have landed themselves on the moon, examined the sights of every planet in our solar system, or been able to play god by recreating themselves by means other than sexual or asexual reproduction. We appear to be unconventional anomalies in a master plan that has been disturbed.
Every species on Earth has a natural instinct to preserve the harmonious coexistence between themselves and their surroundings. Humans on the other hand, behave like a disease, continually spreading out, reproducing, feeding and destroying until all natural resources have been consumed. The interests of humans and the interests of nature seem to be conflicting paradoxes.
How, in the natural course of evolution, could we have possibly evolved into this? All other creatures have gradually evolved with periodic enhancements that allow them to survive without destroying everything around them. They have been provided with a safe level of intelligence, not a level that is dangerous to nature, like we currently exhibit. How could all these uniquely human traits have possibly occurred naturally? They do not benefit nature in any way, shape, or form.
