100,000 years ago, there were several different kinds of humans on Earth. Then super-volcano Toba erupted 70,000+ years ago and pushed Homo sapiens to the fore. Now, we're faced with a looming 'bottleneck' called global warming.
Our current human population is so numerous that multiple mutations have occurred alongside the potential for genetic engineering. "Over the past 10,000 years, human evolution has occurred a hundred times more quickly than in any other period in our species’ history."
What will the new species be called that may arise the devastating results of our current quagmire?
New Humans In The Offing
Is it time for nature to take its course and 'thin the herd' to see which of our newer mutations will be beneficial towards the further evolution of our species? Especially, since mankind is making remarkably little progress in genuinely comprehending that there can only be one God (one Creator) no matter what the anthropomorphic tribal name given by different religions. If we'd just more fully realize this, then perhaps we would treat each other more like brothers and sisters? [Oops! I just realized that we already do generally treat one another like siblings (sibling rivalry)]. Perhaps 'friends' would be a more appropriate concept to aim for. Brethren implies those of a like mind which is limiting. We need those who are more enlightened towards the Universal Mind.
I once knew a fellow who would openly state, "I'm a racist. (pause) I believe in the human race". I can only hope that he was right.
Note: If there is a population crash in the future, after the 'new humans' rebuild society, perhaps they will be a bit more astute than we have proven to be. At any rate, they won't have the oil reserves that we've had to fully repeat our kind of industrialization errors even if they do muck it up as badly as we have. I just hope that they develop interstellar travel before a truly 'natural disaster' brings about an extinction event that finishes us all off.
