Primitive humans made up elaborate, fanciful stories to explain their innate evil.
Even today, most humans still find it virtually impossible to accept the truth about themselves.
It’s funny, isn’t it. Prior to the advent of humans there was no evil on planet earth.
All forms of life did their own thing as nature intended: they procreated, protected their young, killed other things for food, fought off rivals, competed for mating rights, etc.
But no other life form had the kind of brain that could allow them to sit down and plan how to kill others of their kind, how to invent new weapons that would give them an advantage, enable them to destroy whole cities. No other life form embraced greed as their raison de etre. No other life form developed cruelty and torture and turned it into an art form. No other life form enslaves as humans do or carries out rituals like burning witches or sacrificing virgins to some mythical being.
If you think about the amount of evil in our world, we humans have little to be proud of. It seems that each human is born with evil already there. Whether it emerges depends on the circumstances we are born into.
Gaddafi was killed last night and according to report, it was not a pretty death, and not according to the images I saw, images caught on a cell phone. Wild animals could not have done worse.
Humans will now compete with each other for the rights to grab Libyan oil. I suppose Britain and France will put in a strong call but the U.S. will inevitably be at the front of the queue.
With Gaddafi gone, the rest of Africa is open for an invasion of competing nations all wanting to grab resources before others do. If they can’t get them via deals, they’ll get them by military force either overt or covert.
The only way to rid planet earth of evil is for humans to become extinct, every single one. Given there are 7 billion of us already, if we keep procreating as we are, the evil multiplies as well. Imagine how the world will be if we reach 20 billion or 50 billion. It’s too awful to contemplate!
Humans are a terrible evolutionary mistake. Other animals have brains but they do not work the same as ours do. Where did our evil come from, you may ask?
Religious people have to blame the ‘GOD’ who made them. Atheists have no such answer. We just have to live with the fact that we are a despicable life form, try as best we can to curb our base instincts, and wait for the human race to destroy itself which may not be far away.
Is there no hope, you ask?
None that I can see!
