According to Charles Darwin and others, natural selection chooses the path of one creature or another according to how fit it is through it’s evolution up the tree, starting with the big bang and ending with humans.
Truth is, life was created to evolve through natural selection, but now human selection determines the path of life, Not Nature! We decide whether life lives or not according to it’s value to us.
In Florida, the blue leg hermit crab is restricted because it’s worth money to the industry, even though there are trillions and are in no danger of becoming extinct. But the poor red leg hermit of which there are very few of and could possibly go extinct are not restricted and people can take as many as they want because the industry doesn’t want as many.
In Hawaii a three thousand dollar jewel tang is kept by itself so it don’t get sick with all the others that are not worth as much all mixed in the same water.
In Alaska they shoot wolves from a helicopter because of the value difference between them and elks, and in every corner of the world there are rich slobs laying around doing nothing for society but depleting all the resources and surviving, while hard working people die everyday because humans selected them out according to their value.
We may have selected natural selection out in exchange for the value to human system. But?
What if nature choose by value?
Whether we add to the world or just took from it.
How much would we be worth?
Would we still be here?
Maybe we better give the choice back to nature where it belongs before the choice is no longer ours.
