If we are indeed heading for a 6th mass extinction, I wonder if this will trigger the next step in our evolutionary path; if there is one at all.

personally i don't think we've got a lot of time left. i think in the next 20 years it will be so evident no one can deny it. we're going down hill and every day we pick up a little more speed.

When you see a mass die off of pigs, be worried...
Also murdered in 2009 by the USDA are victims of other species:
27,000 beavers, 1700 bobcats, 81,000 coyotes, 2,000 gray foxes, 336 mountain lions, 1900 woodchucks, 130 porcupines, 12,000 raccoons, 20,000 squirrels, 30,000 wild pigs, 478 wolves.

How many can recall when the earthworms would cover the sidewalks and streets after a good rain, cover them so much that you couldn't walk without stepping on them. I haven't even seen an earthworm pop itself out of the ground in a long time, not a single one, they would quickly go back into their hole when approached or touched. There are less sparrows, and I haven't seen a night hawk in years. As the song goes, where have all the flowers gone....long time passing. But for me it's questioning: where have the earthworms gone?
Similarity to human structure -- Pigs are mammals. Consequently, all of the major structures found in humans are present in the fetal pig. With proper directions, they can all be readily found, especially with large, full term fetal pig specimens. There are a some differences in structural details, mostly relatively minor in nature.
