    Why not admit it?

    Let's face it: As a species, we're the nastiest, blood-thirstiest predator on the planet!

    If it walks, crawls, flies, swims, or just sits there and grows, we'll kill it and try to eat it (maybe). Hell, we're so damned blood-thirsty that we'll create the damnedest reasons to kill our own to slake our thirst for blood: 'They don't look like us', 'they don't pray like us', 'three hundred and and fifty two years ago his great-great-great-great-etc. grandfather pissed on my great-etc. grandfather's grave'.

    What's so difficult about recognizing ourselves for what we are? Maybe then we can try to be something different: human.

    I kind of think that the 2 posts above show you what's going on.

    The first one says have patience. It's still new and it takes time to change.

    More time than we are looking for it to be. We evolve slowly in both our physical and mental aptitudes. But we are learning faster than we can asslimulate and it leaves rough spots. It shows where we are not ready yet.

    The second one says, So what? We are what we are. Deal with it. Whether you agree or not this is the way it is. That this is our nature.
