Darwinian Natural Selection in Today's Society

(Originally posted on my personal blog, BrainlessGeorge.com.)

I stand firm with my thoughts on Darwinian Natural Selection. I’m quite sure that it has happened in humans in even recorded history. I think that the technological advances, and forms of entertainment, all have implications of evoluation. Since the dawn of man we’ve been evolving and furthering our thinking.

Why?

To better survive in an ever changing world. Adapting to our surroundings? Check.

Take global warming for example. Without furthering our understanding of it we would simply be doomed.

“Greener” energies are now available thanks to the evolution of modern thought and scientific exploration.

just food for thought.
Okay, enough of that.

I’m working towards quite a few new schools of thought. I’m writing a short story about what life would be like without religion, and having known everything we know now about the economy and environmental shortcomings…but because it’s too late to imply that we could have this on earth, in my lifetime…I’m writing in the form of a futuristic galactic expansion, where humans travel to, and inhabit, a newly discovered earthlike planet capable of harboring lifeforms aplenty.

It’s just a little fiction story, but with a perfect Utopian setting and greatly increased understanding.

In my opinion…this natural selection will occur with humans, and the problems of radical religion will be the problems of yesteryear. How will this come about?

Well, there is a growing community of Atheistic or other non-religious people who aren’t ashamed to speak their minds and be “out” about it in the same sense that homosexuals come out.

This will grow to a spurt of non-religious marriages, and in turn non-religious children. They could marry other non-religious folks and work towards a larger community of understanding. Someday, I hope, this will bring about mass change in the theocracy not only our country is run by, but the globe. I think that this could mean great things. The intellectual elite will become the majority and, in turn, natural selection will have occurred.

How is this natural, you may ask?

It’s VERY common for people to date and marry those with similar beliefs, or lack thereof. It’s only natural to seek a significant other with things in common.

Someday, hopefully, the mass ignorance and delusion that radical religion grasps will be obsolete leaving a more intelligent and learned society, to better handle the problems and issues that arise.

But that’s just my way of thinking.

Now, a music video I've found proving evolution and the intellectual elite in music.

Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and the oceans since the mid-twentieth century and its projected continuation. Global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the 100 years ending in 2005. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes that anthropogenic greenhouse gases are responsible for most of the observed temperature increase since the middle of the twentieth century, and natural phenomena such as solar variation and volcanoes probably had a small warming effect from pre-industrial times to 1950 and a small cooling effect from 1950 onward. These basic conclusions have been endorsed by 30 scientific societies and academies of science, including all of the national academies of science of the major industrialized countries. Many large business empires began as meager ventures, and then grew under visionary eyes that seized opportunity and had an eye on the brass ring. Many of the richest men in history began with next to nothing and became successful through their spirit and drive. That is why America is the land of the entrepreneur. Despite the economy being so bad off right now, this is a great time for the right kind of entrepreneur. Not necessarily a great time for the entrepreneur purveyor of underwater woven baskets, but if you have a solid business plan, every detail mapped out to a tee, then you have a decent shot.

You are so true, sir.

No amount of Neanderthal sex could ever make up for terrible taste in music.

George Sansbury: The hardest thing in the world is being in love with a Christian. She asked me to go to church with her.

Relationships are give and take. You have to draw the line in the sand somewhere, and if she can't accept that, then its an omen that much, much worse lies ahead.

My brother married a rabid Billy Joel fan . No one, and I mean NO ONE, is that good a fuck.

The hardest thing in the world is being in love with a Christian. She asked me to go to church with her. I told her the closest thing I could do is go to a Unitarian Universalist church.

Ugh.

I agree. I think we're moving away from religion. Children need a lot of reinforcement from adults to believe in god. I have two kids, whom I'm raising agnostic. That's two I'm putting out there. They'll have kids...hopefully....say four. They'll have kids...you get the point.

In todays bubblewrapped society, survival of the fittest no longer applies. It is now survival of the loudest. How do you think things like euthenasia, favoured by the majority in most sectors of the civilised world, remain criminalised ? By small pockets of nutjobs that can collectively make more noise than the civilised majority and effectively keep politicians shitting their pants at the mere thought of broaching the subject. I call this the "Dictatorship of Arseholes".
