Evolution, True Or False
It comes down to choices, which are not always beneficial to us. We tend to experiment with things, yet any gleaned information remains inadequate.
The fossil puts to rest the notion, popular since Darwin's time, that a chimpanzee-like missing link—resembling something between humans and today's apes—would eventually be found at the root of the human family tree. Indeed, the new evidence suggests that the study of chimpanzee anatomy and behavior—long used to infer the nature of the earliest human ancestors—is largely irrelevant to understanding our beginnings.
Ardi instead shows an unexpected mix of advanced characteristics and of primitive traits seen in much older apes that were unlike chimps or gorillas (interactive:
Human mind & psychology
Human mind, psychology and development depend on the exchange of the knowledge of truth. Truth can only be found in its original state and in its original milieu long before it went into hiding in particles of matter. Humans evolved possessing territorial instincts, but also evolved to be quite narrow-minded. At the time of no scarcity of game, open spaces and plenty of food man fought another man. I suppose the fear was the factor. One clan met another clan, perhaps racially different from themselves, and with them came curious suspicions. Man fights what he does not know for what he knows is himself and his kind... he assumes. Eventually this desire to destroy anything that is foreign went on for millennia embedding and marking the human genome its message. These are the origins of racism, parochialism, bigotry, nationalism or religious intolerance. Today this fight donned but only a different garb. The war is on but it changed forms. Sports, scientific, religious, economic or technological competitions stem from those primordial restless genes. And although it seems like we are advancing but the pace is less than that of a tortoise. Let me tell you why. The inherent warlike traits resurface from time to time and the propelling mechanism is the ego and the pride of life. And like it is written, [1John 2:16] For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. It makes sense, doesn't it? Anything physical, but only amongst humans, has an identity, self, and then comes the ego and with that comes pride. This chain must be understood, for if not it will perpetuate itself bringing more suffering and interrupting our progress. First comes the grasp of these facts, then comes the knowledge of something much higher and much better, but one must decisively forsake the old in order to gain the new. Only then the new knowledge can lead to wisdom. Wisdom is activity itself; one is deemed wise for the way one behaves.
