At some point though we are going to need to take the bull by the horns and grow up to be responsible for our own collective destiny.
Something God told us we would never be capable of doing for ourselves.
We are not kids anymore, it is a thing here on Earth that we have to live on our own. I doubt God wants to hold our hands forever.
You're right, God doesn't want to hold our hands forever. That's why he said that he would bring the people who believed in him into a new world that he created just for us.
What you forget is that as long as this world exists, evil is going to exist to wipe out all progress. Until God removes the evil, we're all just going to see everything peak and then retract. As long as we have this back and forth (good vs. evil), we're never going to make real progress. For everything we invent, we're capable of using for both good and evil. You're never going to fully change the direction of men's hearts and ways without the Creator getting involved.
