    War is natural, peace is artificial.

    I’ve never been able to decide if Binkley actually knows what Portnoy’s up to, and is yanking his chain, or not.

    Portnoy’s not evil, he’s just mischievous. Binkley needs to be far more precise in his philosophical musings….

    Well, anaphylaxis is a pretty evil result, mischievous intent or no.

    there are times that one questions faith in humanity that we are all evil, but there are other times, that there is good in people.

    Binkley is just sitting in a dandelion dream world haze.

    The last two thousand years only?

    I’m sure he’s lost faith in humanity by now…it’s been over 30 years since Bink said all that (or Breathed drew it).

    @Omnius

    I agree with you!

    What was with all the “Bill the cat ate the strip!” nonscence from the past 2 weeks?

    “If you want peace, prepare for War” is still very true. We aren’t all that evolved.

    In college I volunteered to help students write their papers at our campus writing center. One day, a freshman comes in for her appointment, carrying a pile of school texts, along with a bible.

    “Uh oh,” I thought to myself, “I already know why she needs help with her paper.”

    Throughout most of the session she mentioned nothing about her faith, until we got on the topic of human stupidity (which was only obliquely related to the paper, tho’ i don’t recall what).

    “That’s why I don’t believe in evolution,” she said.

    “How’s that?” I cautiously asked.

    “Because humans have never gotten any smarter,” she said.

    I couldn’t think of an counter argument.

    Though human civilization goes back 10,000 years and maybe much further than that.

    @elbeck

    Are we speaking generally or individually? And ‘smartness’ in what exactly? Evolution may not cover that unless intelligence is a good trait to have.

    @elbeck

    It’s not that people haven’t gotten smarter. It’s that we never seem to get any wiser. Eg we never learn from ours or others bad ways not to do it again.
    Sadly there seems to be no gene for wisdom.

    In our current state and left to ourselves, we are most certainly hopeless.
