Re: Sinosauropteryx filament melanosomes challenged

Rescued from truncation:


Actually I do not think we are in any position to say that high intelligence or a technological civilization are adaptive triumphs for more than a very brief span of time - we seem well on the way to exceeding the carrying capacity of our environment and, perhaps, may be a very short-lived evolutionary experiment as things go. We have been an industrial civilization for only about 200 years, and already seem well on the path to not only destroying our own resource base
but eliminating the opportunity for a future industrialized civilization to
arise. If our civilization collapses, where will the next one get its oil, its metals? I'm almost 64 years old and I hope our civilization will last out my lifetime, much less the rest of earth's history! My money is on the bacteria.
