Humanities Redemption

What

does it mean

to be human?

Are we

just animals

or evolving

to become

something more?

Are we

victims

to our basic

instincts

unable to push back

and mature.

Do our passions

control our minds

or

can our minds

control

our passions?

Is our intellect

held ransom

by our biology,

millions of years

in the making?

Can the passions

of the animal

be countered

by our intellect

and sentience?

Will society

devolve

back with our

passions

holding sway?

Can our

intellect

understand the animal,

desire to move on,

thus show us the

way?

Was religion

just a means

of holding our

passions

in check

holding the animal

at bay?

Will our

machines

become sentient

with no passions involved,

with no hormones to

befuddle?

Will they see us

as flawed

with no hope

for redemption.

The battle rages

on with no

end in site.

The fate of

humanity

hangs in the balance.
