    We are a crazy species. Who designed us? How could such a creature evolve? We are our own best ally and worst enemy. Is there another 'top of the food chain' creature that wars with it's own?

    Oh yeah. Chimpanzees. With whom we share 98% of genes.

    Hey, no wonder we're ape-shit crazy.

    Theory is, DT, that that is why homo saps are the premier predator... they got all the skills.

    We've certainly got the history records to affirm that. No other species on this Earth has ever done so much damage in such a short time, both to the ecosystem and to itself.

    We are an aberration in the natural world.

    Some think that's a sign that we were put here as opposed to naturally evolving.

    If it's intelligent design, then I gotta question the entities which did such work.
