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…
