    With which of the following statements do you most agree based on your opinion and your interpretationof the statements?

    A. Since the beginning of recorded human history, the human race has gone only in a positive direction and advanced as a species and civilization.

    B. Human civilization has made some progress, but has had many bumps along the way, some of which has set us back decades, maybe even centuries.

    C. The human race has changed very little, except now we have more advanced tools instead of just sharpened sticks, bones, and chipped flakes of rocks.

    D. The human race has doomed itself because of its ignorance and arrogance.

    I voted B, but my ideal answer is more of a mix of A and B.

    We think that we've civilized ourselves. I'm not sure why. We still have the same mentality that we did a 1000 years ago.

    In technology we have advanced. But since we haven't advanced any other way...it makes that technology dangerously unguided by ethics, morals or responsibility.

    Like children playing with matches.

    E. All Of The Above. Why Limit?

    Depends on the day. There is always Hope. Some days, Hope has no strings attached.
