Science Daily provides me with much interesting material drawn from across the spectrum of new scientific advances from a variety of fields. The article entitled “Origin of human genus may have occurred by chance” discusses one of the explanations for Homo Sapiens superior intellect and ultimate survival as global climate change “event” which altered the physical environment of our pre-human ancestors such that we ultimately evolved.
This article essentially dismisses the global change argument and therefore concludes that our emergence as a subspecies, is genus occurred “by chance”. This opens up a fascinating but controversial discussion of who we really are. Are we merely the ultimate survivor in the pure expanse of evolutionary forces? Or do we posses a spiritual nature which completely alters the interpretation of humanities very existence.
I have often referred to French Jesuit paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin whose quote “you are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience but a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.” This understand of the nature of who we are completely alters any concept of “chance” in ultimate human evolution.
Is there evidence for such a belief. I believe there is. Read the book, the blogs, be open to your own perception of the world. The truth is out there.
