Something recently occured to me...
Human evolution is at a near stand-still... at best. At worst, we are in a state of regression.
It is a common misconception that evolution is always a progressive occurance. Most people do not understand the folly in this type of
mind-set. It is perhaps even worse than not believing in evolution all together.
Society is disillusioned by our advancements in technology. They see the new technology and assume that "we" are getting smarter... That "we"
are getting better. What is not usually realized by the average person is that the vast majority of our creations, brilliant ideas, and amazing
masterpieces of music and art are being produced by a very small percentage of intelligent people.
The human gene pool is about to dry up. Why? Because there are too many people in it. The human population is now so great that any mutation (for
better or worse) has no chance of surviving in our gene pool long enough to affect all human beings. All of our good genes are being soiled by
inferior genes before anyone even notices they exist. And even if a mutation did have a chance of success (and believe me, the odds are
infinitesimal) it would take thousands upon thousands of years to affect all of humanity! We'd have seperate sub-species of humans by that
There are few factors of natural selection left for humans due to modern medicine and welfare programs... "Inferior" human specimens live and
reproduce every day, where in the natural world they would have died off already, rooting out the weak branches of our species and leaving
plenty of room for improvement.
The end of the Mayan calendar is 2012. Some interpret this as the doom of everything. However, the Mayans supposedly saw this simply as the end of a
cycle, and believed that humankind has been through several cycles already. Is it possible that 2012 is going to be the great equalizer that
our species needs?
It's just a thought, but what if aliens are preparing for a mass weeding of the human species? Marking those they've decided to keep (or not keep)
with implants? Taking samples of our DNA? Or maybe they don't plan on keeping any of us...
This is how I see it happening:
1) Mass collection of "good" human DNA.
2) "Defragmenting" (for lack of a better term) of our DNA.
3) Complete genocide of the human race.
4) Repopulation of the human race via "good" DNA (clones, test tube babies?, etc.).
5) Aliens act as mentors for the first few generations of the next cycle.
6) Aliens leave new generation to themselves for a while, leaving behind a legacy of legends, myths, and stories of ancient "gods."
If this is the case, it is doubtful that any of us will be chosen to stay alive for the next cycle...
