Just Passing Through

As we enter a new age of social panic and religious hysteria, it might be good to step back and look at our common journey as humans. After all, we've had a pretty good run for a couple million years, and although the last couple thousand have been a bit problematic, the next couple hundred will likely sort things out.

While things like climate change, disease and starvation are understandably unsettling, the evolution of untreatable bacteria now well-underway will resolve things like overpopulation and carbon consumption in short order. Like other species before us, and many now on the verge of extinction, our exit won't matter much to those that survive or are yet to come.

Like they say, we're just passing through.
