One Hundred Thirty

It is not outside the realm of possibility that a mass extinction, like that of the dinosaur, will claim humanity in the foreseeable future. Should that occur, I suspect a new form of “intelligent” life will evolve to recapture the place that mankind—out of arrogant misuse of available resources—relinquished.

    On this ball, we are the “intelligent life,” or at least by comparison to other creatures. Even apes can’t be expected to do more than mumble a trained syllable.

    I suppose, we could “mass extinct.” Maybe through our overt use of antibiotics? Maybe flooding coasts, or some uncontrollable famine? Admittedly, I have sinful thoughts of eugenics.

I wish you would tell me what you think about this post...
