How are we still around?

Work In Progress / 07 October 2020

Today’s blog will be brief.

Basically, the idea that’s been noodling around in my head is this:

If we’ve been around millions of years, how can we still be this stupid? 

Clearly, the idea of reason and proportion are out of whack, when most people will fight about anything, especially petty differences, at the drop of a hat.

If we as a species, can’t do a better job of discerning what is worth fighting and killing each other, how did we make it this far?

It’s baffling to me that the general populace of humanity hasn’t figured out that the key to peace and understanding is mutual respect and acceptance. Allowing others to be different than you, allows you to be different from others. The fact that a basic premise like this isn’t something already culturally engrained as part of basic knowledge and wisdom of humanity seems to suggest it’s a lesson we never learned.

How can we have not figured this out yet and created a better world? How can we still be fighting over the same stuff written by people thousands of yeas ago claiming to speak to their god of choice and using it to fight with other people and the minor differences between your old book and their old book and god of choice?

Were we always idiots for the most part, as the human species, or has something made us collectively dumber?

Most importantly, when will the human race get past its ugly, awkward teenage phase?

In the meantime, I made some art:
