Who Killed Evolution

I have written a few posts about evolution in the past, and I had blamed us humans for standing in the way of evolution. I blamed humans of killing evolution by inventing the institution of marriage. I also blamed us for changing the rules of the game, from survival of the fittest to survival of the richest. Then I went ahead and blamed us for protecting the weak thereby contaminating the gene-pool. What about the time when I said humans bangaloored evolution by inventing tools to overcome their limitation. I had however put a disclaimer at the bottom of almost all of those posts and am I glad I had done that. I knew there were too many things I didn’t know. But yesterday when I was at work I realized that why evolution came to a sudden standstill, and this time, I can’t blame us humans for it; at least not directly. We come …

Why machines will overtake humans

I am a huge fan of Sci-Fi and there are quite a few posts on my blog where I refer to Doctor Who, Star Trek and other Sci-Fi series. But just because I like those TV shows, does not mean I believe everything in it. However, watching those has expanded the horizons of my mind. One of the questions I have wondered about is will robots and computers overtake mankind? I came across this post, Why machines will never overtake Humans? from Akshat Goel where he stated his view on the same. Some of the points that he mentioned helped me in forming my own opinion on the same and as usual I have a different view on things. He thought about this because of a movie that he saw, but I am not going to dissect the movie. But I will say this much. I don’t consider it to be …

Eternal Life

Medicine has progressed so much that people expect to live to a very ripe age. Ripe? Make it rotten. Human beings ability to count time has made it one of the most interesting topic. People love to hear how old certain person has become and they what the average age is of a city, (older the better) so that they can go and live there. We are being a race dominated by old people. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against old people. They have seen it all, and more often than not, they are wiser because of that. But how many old people do you know who are wise, as opposed to knowledgeable? How many of those old people use it to the betterment of the society? How many of them do you see telling stories, whether it is about a ghost, World War II or their childhood …

Logic – An Experiment of evolution

I read somewhere that even if 2% of over 80,000 parts in a Formula 1 car was not working properly, the car will not start. But the human brain can function even if 99% of the body was not working. No two human beings think alike. I guess we should be glad about that. Thankfully, even if we do not think alike, we are still able to reach a mutually agreeable conclusion, more often than not. There are however instances where some people or a group will reach a completely different conclusion which defies logic. Everyone has a tendency to do that to a certain degree. Call it instinct, conviction or what ever you like, but there is a limit where it ceases to be brilliant and becomes insane. There are also people who will listen to all logical arguments and yet come up with an illogical conclusion. There really …

Extinct – Humans

Human race is doomed. This assumption has been made based on two facts. 1. Humans marry. 2. Humans invent. We call this the height of human evolution. That is the problem with it. Since we have evolved as much as we can as a species, now all we can do is grow. As much as I would like to have the powers of X-Men, I am afraid that the best (or the worst) we can hope for now, is less hair. The future Humans will not fly or read each others mind; they will have less and less hair and the one with the least amount of hair will be considered the most eligible. Marriage is major difference between man and any other species when it comes to social groups. Evolution depends on male and female choosing the best available. It is a formula that has worked since the Big Bang and we are the living proof. The choice …
