The Crying Game

    When all is said and done, what would humans leave as their earthly legacy? Would it be, like the dinosaurs, a bunch of fossilized remains that taken as a collective did not mean much, except that they ruled the earth for millions of years, only to be eradicated in one swift swoop by mother nature. Mothet nature may look askance at Homo Sapiens" ; what might not be too benign is man' own overweening ego...when it comes to his ultimate destiny, self-destruction is an all too real possibility.

    Earthly legacy garbage.
    Homo Sapiens are eternal.
    "Mary Leakey has found at Laetoli in Africa, footprints which are considered to date from nearly 4 million years ago, and are identical with the footprints of modern humans except that they are somewhat smaller."
    However this does not correspond to the progressive theory of evolution so it is buried.

      It's not buried. If it were buried you would not know about it. What possible reason would science for lying about modern human existence? Nothing can be dated about footprints. The rock or mud under the footprints can be dated. But who's to say the mud didn't become soft again within the last 200,000 years. No modern humans have ever been takes within the last 200,000 years and no dinosaurs have ever been dated within the last 65 million years. They have no reason to lie, they just want the truth.

      To answer your question about what we will leave behind... stainless steel.

      I wish I could share your optimism about the longevity of Homo Sapiens as a specie, but at the rate that  humans are  devolving into  soul-less materialists, objectivists, reductionists and nihilists....their  self-destructive impulses unhampered by societal degeneration,  their inevitable march towards annihilation seems assured. Unless of course humans  temper  their  licentious ego with their consciencious spirit.
