I think, therefore I am.
1In the era of great tumult, humanity suffered its greatest loss: the war with self. 2The species never thrived on material and consumption more in any era than its end, but as the old saying goes, "too much of anything can kill you."
3Of course, the law of Natural Selection states, only the strong survive. 4Charles Darwin's law was applicable in this instance as all others. 5The select few who were prepared to deal with catastrophe found way to prosper and maintain. 6Admittedly, they were aided by the availability of resource and nutrition. 7The land was not barren. 8Humanity did not die of thirst, starvation, or apocalyptic physical destruction of Earth. 9Humanity died because they were not willing to do what was necessary to survive... learn.
10This also is not at all about near extinction, rather devolution. 11People became so dependent on apathy that their blissfully ignorant lives became worthless. 12The great thinkers, John and Luke, did not envision any one life as worth more than the next, but the lives of so many were tattered by complacency and apathy, as well as the hypocrisy that endowed the majority, that savior was no longer an option. 13In the end, all that was left was a land full of righteous thinkers and survivors. 14And in the new beginning, a bountiful Earth was graced by the minds that could redefine humanity.
