What if there were no bombs, chemical weapons and other implements of war devised by man and no wars? And no unnatural pollution that causes so much environmental damage? No man-made forest fires? No wild animal habitat destruction? No slaughterhouses and other forms of domestic animal abuse?
The endless list of self-serving and cruel practices carried on by man leads me to a sobering question: Is it possible that the human animal, given all the bad things we do to each other and the Earth, our home, is a major mistake in the chain of evolution? Is man's superior intelligence also his undoing?
