Human Superiority Might Be An Evolutional Fault

Charles Robert Darwin (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) is the first man ever who seriously put into severe debates the question about the evolution of humans and animals which, you know, resulted from a process that he called natural selection.  Darwin spent most of his life studying the different stages of their development, the usual mental and physical signs that distinguished them from each other and the special features in their behavior. In fact, Darwin’s unique scientific theory of the evolutional process of organisms hides much deeper questions in human mind that you can even imagine.  His plausible theory makes me sometimes contemplate over the following:

“Is humankind the only predominating breed in our planet?” and “Whether this breed is superior to all of the rest? “

At first, obviously – yes. People, however, often subconsciously show that it’s unfounded of them to pretend being more precious, kinder or more superior to animals, for example, except for their ability to reasonably speak and communicate.  We all too often become victims of our own egotism. I mean we often think we have the right to whop, hurt, fight or kill someone else without a reason. Do you think we have the right to destroy because of the fact we think we are “predominators”? Who are we to kill a living soul, a living creature, a child of some mother?” Who am I to judge?” and even “Who is the judge to judge?” Isn’t he a person, too? But, yes, yes, yes… this is a country which has lows; this is an authority which has rights and so… I know that and I also know it is the only way to keep things in order.  But something has to change, something which can make us a better breed.  Don’t believe me? – watch The experiment (2010)movie.


The abovementioned theory of natural selection is the process by which genetic mutations that enhance reproduction become and remain, more common in successive generations of a population.  These creatures have better genes to survive in the wild and adjust to unfavourable conditions.  They have the right to kill, to fight because they have to survive. They don’t vie with each other for money or drugs; they neither steal cars nor do they commit a crime for a handful of jewelry.

 Then, again, Why the hell* are we  better and more superior to other animals on that planet?  Or all

 this is our vindication that human superiority might be an evolutional fault ?

…let’s try to be humans…

The “magic” stream of Cleopatra


These waters are so-called “the magic stream of Cleopatra” (Pamukkale, Turkey) because an ancient legend uncovers the secret of the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt who loved to bathe in these waters in the ancient past BC. Furthermore, the legend says that when a person bathes in this stream he can feel unusual ten-year rejuvenation on him by the time goes by.

All that myth sounded extremely interesting heard by the words of our male guide. I couldn’t believe I was standing in front of the BC history, nor I was completely able to believe in his words. I was just looking how people enjoyed swimming in the river; how they seemed to believe and hope in that ancient legend they were exposed to. Although the river was dirty and unpleasant at some spots people were swimming and laughing as if they could deeply breathe the air and feel that ancient atmosphere.

Here comes the question of money. Of course, as every other world-famous destination, each person should pay an entrance fee before he could take a bite of that great experience. The entrance fee was 10 euro and guess – no one did it. A lot of people in our group, however, thought it was an effing dispensability to pay this fee because nobody apparently believed in miracles. This is exactly what I think is wrong with us – our dispensability to believe in miracles, to hope, to dream big…  It is not worth paying 10 euro to take a bath in the “stream of Cleopatra” only, but it is worth paying this money to believe that these waters have a magical power to change destiny.

      …we exist when we hope…
