What if We Are a Mistake ?
What if we are a mistake ? What if God never intended for one of its creatures to take over the planet.
If you accept the premise that we are an ape that made it big. Or even just entertain the thought. Then let me continue. Maybe God has creations of life all over the universe. But by circumstances and luck we have evolved. A creature that has long legs and long arms. And a brain that grew beyond the accepted.
If you think about it we are not really well equipped to live in the wild. As defenses go we have none. At least not physically. We can't run fast. We do not climb very well and we are weak. Not a good combination when going against a hungry lion. But what we do have are long legs for walking upright and freeing our hands. Long arms with hands and five fingers that work very well and very precise. Stereo vision, good eyesight and we can see color.
But of course the crowning achievement. That which without we would have ended up on an evolutionary dead end. Our brain.
But what if this was not supposed to be. A creation of sorts that got away from the cook. Our species has taken over the planet and killed the Garden of Eden. In some ways, we have become God.
We were originally designed to live around 40 years. Our brain has elapsed that with medical science. We have redone the surface of the planet. Wiped out whole species of animals. Built huge cities with huge populations to go along with them. And yes we are trashing the planet. Perhaps even killing it.
Maybe we are an anomaly. Something that happened when God turned its head.
