Selection can create
finally balanced harmony from the chaos of randomness and chance
Chance is the greatest
force of creation.
Selection is simply exploiting chance.
Selection puts order in chance
Humans where created with the
ability to know of the consequences of their actions. This trait has both
blessed and burdened us with the ability to select behavior with an intended
outcome. Thus we have the ability to know the consequences of our actions
or the actions we manipulate others to select. These actions can be for
the advancement of all life, or only for human life or for the lives of
only a select few humans. In the process of pursuing our goals of economic
and population growth we often select actions that are detrimental to
the continuation of life on Earth.
It is easy to endanger
life when one is intoxicated with power.
We may also consider whether
this is good or evil, or even if there is a good and evil? Perhaps it
is egotistical to think humans can know if this is really good or bad.
May be, it just is? Just as selection, just is from chance.
Sometimes selection favors
Sometimes selection favors the priest
Natural selection is the great
driving force behind market economies and as long as environmental conditions
can support capitalism this economic system will do well and perhaps better
than many other systems. However there will come a time when chance, and
selective pressures will change the system as we now know it.
