Today is Veterans Day. This is a holiday that America should try to place in the history books. In a civilized society war should be a thing of the past. War should be considered a primitive solution to our problems. War should be a distant memory; something that our kids have problems even believing ever happened. Our kids should be asking us if it was true that people were once so stupid that they launched wars and killed each other en mass.
Maybe the Christian fundamentalists are correct. Maybe there is no such thing as evolution. Humans donâ€™t seem to be evolving these days. Well, their technology is evolving but their society is regressing. On the other hand I would not exactly call this â€œintelligentâ€ design either. Maybe we are here as part of an experiment gone bad? OKâ€¦itâ€™s not evolution and itâ€™s not â€œintelligentâ€ design. So Iâ€™ll just call it â€œpoorly designed evolution.â€ What do you think?
While I express my thanks to our veterans today I quietly wish that we would stop producing them. Perhaps instead of spending our treasure to produce more veterans we could simply take good care of veterans that we already have produced. Think about it!
