"Questions: Where/what was human purpose “before it was stuck in the realm of religion”? Science seems an attempt to escape the realm (the swindles) of religion, so what preceded religion? An answer: Before religion, some people…"

"What is the scientific purpose of the human species? What is the scientific purpose of a disease germ? Who was the first disease germ and did it have a mate? So much for scientific purpose. Somewhere the truth is in there. Things happen."

Welcome, Blue Grey Brain, to Atheist Nexus. I, for one, do not believe there is such a thing as, 

"Scientific purpose of the human species"

because that implies there is a designer who planned the existence of Homo sapiens. I see no evidence of any such designer or planner when looking through scientific lenses. I don't disagree with Richard Dawkins, however, the process of natural selection ultimately comes to a specimen that can think, reason, make decisions, plan, and design, given enough time. Sadly, fools evolve alongside genius, who can con others into following. 

Is it not interesting that POTUS can bully his way into irresponsible actions even as scientists receive the first photos taken from Mars?
