Evolved Sensibilities

"God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man, man destroys God, man creates dinosaurs…” So said Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park.[1]

Primitive humans believed in the supernatural, the fantastical, to explain things their mind could not. Much of their daily interactions were inexplicable to them before. Gradually, experience educated them as to the predictable laws of nature, causality, and, eventually, their fellow humans.

The sensibilities of today’s evolved, modern human have, thankfully, grown beyond these embryonic stages to view everything with pragmatic eyes that see the world as it is. As a species we no longer need the crutch of superstition to explain our world. Vestiges of this primitive world view can be nostalgically and romantically seen still today when the very young put belief in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, or little people inside a battery powered toy causing its movement. To this natural, enlightened end, now only the most naïve and uneducated humans actually believe in democracy or common sense.
