Evolution has no direction. We could get dumber and dumber.
31 March 2008 | by Gore_WonSee all my reviews

We certainly seem to be, judging from the comments on this film. It's no masterpiece, and it doesn't discuss global warming in as much depth as I'd have liked--some animations from Gore's film could've worked--but I think some people are being seriously misled by dangerously incomplete knowledge.

Evolution takes place over millions of years. Paleontologists consider tens of thousands of years too short a time to distinguish evolutionary changes. Humans have mass-hunted whales and other large animals only in the past couple of centuries, and we've already wiped out so many species. When a species disappears, not only do its evolutionary gains disappear from Earth forever, it also indicates serious trouble in its entire ecosystem. It tells us that something is very, very wrong.

Nothing but bacteria can evolve in our lifetime. It says much about human apathy to see such mean-spirited messages on here. People who don't care about animals don't care about humans.
