The Future

Skip Navigation LinksHome Page > Evolution > Social Order > Future

While tempted to say: "There is none" it is more accurate to say that our future is limited by our Human Nature and Political Will rather than evolutionary forces.

Evolution has taken us as far as it can and now is the enemy. Those things that stood us in good stead while we were primitive animals: aggression; reproductive drive; physical dominance and other less “evolved” behaviors now threaten to bring us to the edge of extinction.

Many activists blame science and technology for the pending destruction of humanity and possibly all life on earth. Unfortunately, humans are an under-evolved species emotionally and instinctively. We are still the victim of our nature and there is little chance we can overcome it since most of the world likes to believe we are not animals. As long as we refuse to acknowledge our true nature, we will never be able to reach our full potential. Worst yet, we will almost certainly destroy ourselves.

This will come as no surprise to those religions throughout the world that predict the end of our world. It has become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
