My day started good as most days usually do. I try to choose the attitude I want to work with for a given day. Today was going to the public library and attending critical thinkers presentation.
Interesting topic on the agenda. The genome project national geography team did - in bringing about the understanding of genetic ancestry. At some point of the presentation, I teared up because of a comment one of the participants said - " ... we are 99% similar genetically but we kill each-other on superficial differences ... "
After the video presentation, discussion ensued and there were attendees that associated spirituality with being 'one' - created by the 'one' - which of-course was met with critical answers like - how can a 6000 years religious point of view explains 200,000 years genetic evidence that we evolved from homo-sapiens?
May be it is a human condition to make sense of the unknown so it fits certain containerized explanation ? Something that fits certain belief system and make it all good and neatly folded. I saw the presentation as something the added to the solidification of religion being outdated and historical relic that needs to be shelved - to be remembered as one of the evolution stepping stone.
