I’m Afraid Homosapien Has Had His Day.

All over the world, fundamentalist belief is gaining power. The stupid and ill-educated are easily scared of things like eclipses and earthquakes and flying machines, and this complicated world is overwhelming them. They long for the good old days– some time around the 12th century.

The modern world does not frighten me, but these folks do. As an environmentalist I’ve complained bitterly about how humans have stupidly degraded their own life-support systems. But now I think the great die-off that’s underway is just part of the grand cycle of evolution. No religious prophecy of “end times” — any one can see what’s coming.

The good old days.

The question is, will some new species, one that is truly sapient, emerge? Stripped of the power to do harm, equipped with a vison of stewardship? Or will life devolve into forms more suited to an inhospitible environment, forms like the ones that survive in the deserts, in the mountain peaks and ocean depths? Is intelligence a failed experient?

I would rather entertain people and hope they were educated than educate them and hope they were entertained.
