If you go around the world you will in many places meet old place names like Land’s End, Cape Finisterre and so on. Later the Earth was the centre of the Universe. Religions made this a crucial issue. And religions still make weird somersaults of the mind.
Now we should know better than putting our species in the centre of everything. But Homo Imbecillus doesn’t.
Even environmentalists tell us that WE can change the way things are by changing our way of living. What do they mean about environmentally friendly cars, by the way? Cars releasing no carbon dioxide when driving? What would happen if every Chinese and every Indian were driving around in environmentally friendly cars?
Bacteriae have been here for a long, long time. We have not. They must have an ”intelligence” superior to ours. If not they would have been extinct.
