25,000 species go extinct each year.
Is man next?
Since the original cell split and the first amoeba swam, the world has evolved. The process has continued, in million year chunks, until the present. At each step changes are made. Some species adapt to the world by changing their body, defenses or habitat. If they cannot survive, the process takes them away.
Mankind, with its big brain, doctrines of justice and articles of faith, is no exception. It's just that our timetable is faster, because we are quicker. When we are gone the big rock on which we live will continue to orbit, and perhaps another breed will emerge. Until that day, humans are part of the same process that brought fish onto land, birds into the air. And like the dinosaur, doomed by too much power without sufficient intellect, we too will perish from the earth.
A man once mused, "To do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law." Hide in Light shows us what that really means.
