We are going to find the defect/inactive genes that made us weaker, grow less hair, gave us the tendency to walk with our nose upwards and in a sense kept us baby’s with a brain which kept growing.
We are no more than a freak of nature prone to extinction. Just some leftover fossils in an earth layer and after the sun dies even this will vanish into nothingness. I wonder if we are stupid enough to make it happen within my lifetime.
