march of progressA year ago, a Smithsonian scientist said she believed the human race was evolving faster than ever, basing her beliefs on factors such as:

  • improvements in healthcare
  • growth in human population

She went on to say that the most noticeable sign of our faster evolution is reflected in the neocortex of the brain where abstract thinking, long-term planning, empathy, and language take place. Our main potential hindrances, according to her, are the evolving microorganisms around us that look to take us down.

In my opinion, I think she was looking at humanity through rose-colored glasses that deny the inherent sin nature of humans. That is our biggest threat. If we were progressing faster in our abstract thinking, long-term planning, empathy, and language, then the following seven things would be non-existent or close to it:

  1.  There are lobbyists, pundits, and many others in our society who believe that even the worst criminals who are justifiably incarcerated should not get the death penalty, arguing that their human lives are precious. Then they will turn around and fight in favor of a woman giving the death penalty to her innocent unborn or partially-birthed baby and for the innocent sick, elderly, depressed, etc. to give themselves the death penalty with a doctor’s help.
  2. For all the talk about women’s rights and feminism, women (including feminists) glorify a male fictional character who physically abuses his woman, keeping him at the top of the bestsellers list as well as pushing him to the top of the box office at theaters. They also will rarely, if ever, speak against the abuse that women are subjected to under Islam. More women in the West are embracing it by marrying Muslim men who believe in sharia.
  3. Mainstream media criticizes those who criticize the brutal savagery of a false religion while they defend that religion as a religion of peace despite the fact history proves otherwise.
  4. Mainstream media and many others in society defend sexually promiscuous lifestyles that have caused an increase in sexually-transmitted diseases that can cause sterility, cancer, and sometimes death and have spawned drug-resistant forms of them.
  5. Since humans first started nations and empires, nations and empires continue to ultimately fail due to the same or similar mistakes that nations and empires made in the past. If we were so evolved in our long-term planning, why are the mistakes of the past repeated over and over?
  6. By the end of the 19th century, slavery had been eradicated from the planet because most people agreed it was barbaric. Now in our technologically, scientifically advanced world human trafficking is back like gangbusters.
  7. Every attempt in the past to create one world government by violence and deception failed, yet today some people within the top 1% are still using those tactics to try it again. We see it in part as they attempt to form a Middle Eastern Union with ISIS as their tool and to form the finishing touches of an Asian Pacific Union using the deception of the Trans Pacific Partnership.

So much for our moving to the next level.

23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. 24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Jeremiah 7
