Me personally, I don't think we should even be classed as mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but we do not.
We move to an area and we multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed, and the only way we can survive is to spread to another area.
There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus.
Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet.
This post was inspired by Agent Smith.

Well, something definitely went wrong during the evolution process.
Humans have gotten to the point where we don't have to struggle to survive, we don't have to hunt, kill, or work for our food. (Talking about the general population here). We can simply drive to the super market and buy a steak. To me, that's the end of evolution, what else is there to do besides survive? What is the point of living as a human being if its not survival of the fittest?

I am just writing this see what everyone's thoughts are, there so many unknowns.
Chimpanzees, our closest living animal cousins share 98% of our human genes, meaning that for 98% of our genes, there is a similar gene in the chimpanzee genome. Even mammals that look quite different from us share a large percentage of our genes; small and furry mice share 92% our genes.
One of the most provocative arguments for intelligent design focuses on the recognition that DNA is an information-based system. Yet skeptics argue that biochemical information is not genuine information. Instead, they assert that when scientists refer to biochemical information, it is merely a scientific metaphor. New research by a team from Harvard and Johns Hopkins University—in which researchers encoded an entire book into DNA—raises questions about this objection and helps to powerfully advance the case for a Creator.

What people seem to ignore completely. Is that Pathogens infect these single celled organisms and make them more complex as they interject RNA created from absorbing other organisms and transfering them together. Much more quickly than sexual reproduction can ever achieve.
But humans were genetically engineered. There's to many patterns in our DNA.

The mastery of fire was probably the single most important thing which set our species on our current path.
Fire allows our civilisation to prosper,so far.
Will it be our ultimate survival tool-or our ultimate doom?
