I, too, am sickened with where our race is intellectually.
Too many people are thinking how they were taught to think, rather than thinking how the were meant to, and society as a whole is exponetially weaker than in our primative days. With the increase of technology, our society has left all the thinking up to a select few, be it politicians who don't know their asses from holes in the ground, or scientists who will take a theory and propel it into the rhelm of fact because their own personal fears prevent them from challenging the validity of it...
As far as humanity is concerned, I have seen the evidence that points to our ancestry, and it is nowhere near convincing to the point of believing that we were once as gorillas, and before, as fish... Though religion is a touchy subject that even in my personal life i prefer not to have anything to do with, I must say, that the bible toters have a point, we are definately the product of some supreme intelligence. Chaos and chance don't even begin to possess what it takes to explain the first ten-billionth of one percent of our universe.
But humanity where it is today, is disgusting.
