jarhead5536 saidO come on Nick. We are far too stupid, territorial and short sighted to NOT blow ourselves up over something. Mankind 1.0 is not God's best work by a long shot...
Granted, I do not consider the human species the work of any divinity.
We've done a half-way decent job of not blowing ourselves up as of yet. The nuclear holocaust has not materialized for any nation or state, with the exception of Japan at the heyday of the bomb.
We have conducted some utter shit, such as Agent Orange over Viet Nam, supporting Saddam's use of chemical weaponry against Iraqis and Iranians, and giving material support to dictators while simultaneously heralding "freedom" and the recognition of human rights. However, this shit does not nullify the good.
[lack of adequate transition noted]
We also have under-appreciated science-fiction / social-fiction writers who help make us aware of the possibilities we face in our developing world, both dangerous and positively affirmative.
[at this point, I notice that I am rambling]
Do not be too hasty in dismissing the intellect, the generosity, and the wisdom of your fellow humans.
