While we have come a long way in scientifically explaining how we have evolved from a fish to a person, what I want to know is why, if we are so smart, can’t we evolve socially? Why do we continue the insanity of wars? Why can’t we learn to work as the human family for the common good?
The superb PBS NOVA program on Charles Darwin’s explanation of the evolution of living species and how science is now answering questions that Darwin could not made me reflect, not only on natural evolution, but also, on social evolution.
I do not doubt that humans have physically evolved, that our brains have enlarged over the eons, and that we have some incredibly brilliant scientists, but where we seem to have not evolved is in our ability to work as a human family to make the world a better place for the human race. Why?
I welcome your thoughts on this, and I have more of my own on which I will elaborate in future posts on this subject.
