Sir Charles Darwin the man who wrote the theory of evolution must be as I type this post turning in his grave and the establishment creaking under the strain.
The only thing which appears to be evolving recent years is hate!
I recently watched the block buster movie Noah, starring Russell Crowe, the most poignant part of the film for me was when Noah’s little daughter bent over and picked a flower, Noah’s response was; “Br careful everything has a purpose.”
Everything was put on this planet with a purpose, people, animals, plants, the oceans, everything but as you will read below they are not doing very well any of them.
And it’s the above items on our planet which are tearing apart, Sir Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution; the only thing on this planet which has evolved since Sir Charles died, is hate’.
Are people evolving?
The human race is probably more unfit than in any other part of the history of mankind, post flood, billions of people around the global are struggling daily to come to terms with 21st century life, be it economically, physically, spiritually or mentally.
According to Medical News Today, one million people commit suicide each year; you could call it a kind of “inverted evolution” because it is getting worse each year.
According to World Hunger Statistics Total number of people that die every year from hunger is almost 8 million poor souls and it’s not getting better it’s getting worse
Total number of people who died of hunger today 21,000
More than one quarter of the people on this fine planet is starving or roughly around 2 billion and that’s evolving too, it’s getting worse every year.
According to WHO; 56.4 million deaths worldwide in 2015 resulted from disease
But isn’t the whole idea of evolution the survival of fittest?
Well yes but we consider the West as the fittest and the strongest but it’s not the case anymore.
More than 69% of US adults are overweight 35% of U.S. adults are obese. Obesity affects 17% of all children and adolescents in the United States, which is three times the prevalence from just one generation ago. Nearly 32% of children and adolescents are either overweight or obese.
Obesity, then, is evolving at an alarming rate in the US.
According to Newsweek every year, about 42.5 million American adults (or 1 in 5 of the adult population in the United States) suffers from some mental illness, enduring conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, statistics released Friday reveal, guess what? It doesn’t seem to be getting better anytime soon.
When you consider the refugee crisis recently with 100 million people fleeing the hell hole often referred to as the Middle East along with the wars and the hate and the terror attacks on innocent people here in the West, you have to come to the conclusion, rather than evolving into a better species mankind is drowning in its own vomit
Surely the animals are evolving? Well, yes they are into extinction!
WWF report: Wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020
It’s already over for many animal species: In just three years’ time the World will have lost two-thirds of all wild animals.
This amazing statistic from The Living Planet Index goes on: The number of wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020, according to a new report, part of a mass extinction that is destroying the natural world upon which humanity depends.
By 2050 they will all be gone but don’t worry the world we know won’t be here to witness the event.
Will the last animal alive on Earth be the fittest; is that the meaning of evolution?
Are plants evolving? Oh you bet!
Meeting the needs of today while preserving the planet for tomorrow (Monsanto)
Our wonderful scientists have decided to play God and manipulate nature, changing the DNA of crops in an attempt to create a more profitable farming environment, but they have kind of shot themselves in the foot by crating Frankenstein crops which in trials have killed hundreds of rats and mice with tumors and in nature wiped out billions of bees in the process.
Half a Billion trees have died in California and Colorado recently
Are Plants Around the World Really Dying?
A new study reveals that plant growth across the globe has decreased in the past 10 years, despite the observed increasing trend of the prior two decades.
Plants evolving into extinction then!
Our wonderful oceans are doing well surely?
Nope; Oceans just as bad
Our oceans are in a similar condition, with the Fukushima accident poisoning the Pacific and the stricken nuclear plant sinking deeper into the ground and no known way to fix the problem, the only option is to wait and see what happens in the next 50 years! It really is that bad.
Warming seas are causing toxic dead zones all over the world’s oceans killing billions of fish, tropical barrier reefs around the world are dying due to the warmth and with massive over fishing we are causing too much stress on the fish which are left, without doubt, we are too far down the line to save our oceans, they too, soon will die just like the fish inside them and the animals on land.
A study by Boris Worm, PhD, of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, -- with colleagues in the U.K., U.S., Sweden, and Panama claims all ocean life will be extinct within the next 25 years. Once again the world we know won’t be here to witness the event.
Is anything evolving then? Yes! Major earthquakes!
Major quakes up by more than 400% since 1900
Major earthquakes have risen more than 400% since 1900 despite USGS telling us otherwise, in the first 16 years of the 20th century 97 major quakes were recorded on Earth compared to 2, 697 in the first 16 years of the 21st century.
Volcano activity shows a similar spike to the quakes.
Our Planet in general, well no, that’s struggling too…
The Arctic sea ice extent for March 2017 was the lowest March extent in the 38-year satellite record. The extra warmth is causing the Arctic to leak methane 200 times faster than usual as gases turn parts of Siberia tundra into ‘trampoline’ soil. Atmospheric methane concentrations are of interest because it is one of the most potent greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere, more warmth more methane, more methane, more warmth… and when leaked into the sea methane will kill all marine life. A deadly patch of warm water along the American West coast called the ‘Pacific blob’, stretching all the way from California up to the Gulf of Alaska, is thought to contain huge concentrations of methane and is responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of sea birds along with other marine life in the area recently.
This winter, the Arctic was often warmer than Southern US States and Southern Europe, parts of the usually warm Mediterranean countries were so called thousands of acres of winter crops died causing huge shortages in European supermarkets.
Lightning strikes are on a 12 to 24% increase: The phenomenon appears to be worsening with climate change and last November a rare phenomenon "thunderstorm asthma” claimed 6 lives in Australia.
The increase in temperatures in India Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan have become so extreme thousands of locals die every year with temperatures often hitting 50 Celsius, 130 Fahrenheit, melting roads and cars.
Well that’s my take on evolution, there is a lot of evolution going sadly, and it’s all evolving the wrong way!
