HUMAN ARRIVAL: HOW DID WE AS PEOPLE COME TO BE

“From the past into the present.”


the beginning

The scientific theory is that man started to evolve some 315,000 years in the continent of Africa. And from that point ventured out into the world coming in contact with all types of obstacles along the way. But eventually we have made our way to today and continue to evolve. Now, this does not go without criticism from people of deep religious faith who believe otherwise. But the academic belief still holds strong in our society. And these two opposing side have been at odds for hundreds of years. Even in the past people lost their lives, one in particular Galileo Galilee who challenged the churches views on the Earth.

theory based on what

Where do these theories come from, or better yet, how do scientist really know for sure how many came about? One of their ways that they observe is through observation of creatures from all different walks of life. Then from watching what we are as a creature we try to figure out the closest species. And what they have come up with that is closer to man is the idea that we broke away at some point from our ape cousins. Well, where does this come from? Through the fact that we share a 99% strain with apes. Because there is a reason why we have for so long tested apes when trying to figure out the cures for diseases in humans. When you’re dealing with a creature only 1% different then you have a lot to stand on.

continuous process

Are we still evolving, and the answer is yes. Well how do we know if man is still evolving? The reasons being that we make leaps and bounds with technological advancement. This will inevitably cause the human brain to expand, thus new creations made on Earth. Which is a form of evolution. Because the idea that we were in horse drawn wagons then cars then planes is a testament to the evolution jumps. Now we have rovers in space on the Moon and on Mars. So, to an extent the idea that we as humans evolve continuously exist, but at what time do we stop evolving? Will we ever hit a point where we just can’t know anymore. There is an end to everything; a finite amount of anything. Our universe has a time in which it will expand beyond limits. So will our minds reach a point to stop expanding.

PREDISPOSITIONS GONE: WILL DNA EVER BE MANIPULATED TO WIPE OUT HEREDITARY DISEASES

“Re-engineering Humanity.”


WHAT IS DNA?

DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid, which is the hereditary strands of material that can be found in humans and most of all organisms. There is information that is stored inside that is code made up of chemical bases: Adenine (A), Guanine (G), Cytosine (C), and Thymine (T). There are 3 billion bases in the human DNA chain, and 99% of those are in all human beings. Now the bases pair up with each other for base pairs; A with T and C with G. Now each of the bases are attached to a sugar and phosphate molecule. Then you have a nucleotide that comprises of a base, sugar, and phosphate. There are two strands that comprise of this nucleotide that move in a spiral motion called a double helix. DNA has the ability to replicate itself.

HEREDITARY DISEASES

These are typically diseases that are caused because there is an abnormality in the genome. Meaning there is something off with the entire genetic makeup of the person. You can inherit the abnormality from a parent or there could be a mutations issue in the gene or gene group. Many different illnesses include: cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s , and high blood pressure. Now my question is, will there ever come a time scientist will be able to go within the human DNA chain and restructure certain components so that we can eliminate hereditary diseases? That would mean making adjustments that may on some level effect other aspects of the human DNA chain.

DRAWBACKS

Humanity has evolved into what we are today for a reason. And that reason is forever unknown, but there is one thing for certain. Removing certain elements from the DNA could ultimately leave us susceptible to other diseases that are unknown to man. As interesting as it may seem to want to remove the sicknesses from the human body, we have to remain cautious abut all the drawbacks. Because there is no such thing as all good and no bad. Every aspect of life has a drawback, so what would the drawback be for altering DNA. Another issues may not be diseases, but the characteristics that make us what we are as people could be altered. Altered in a way that may effect how we look or communicate as humans.

CRACKING THE AGE OF MAN: WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT

Image result for oldest HUMAN found

“The interesting look into the human species.”


Scientist have recently found the oldest human remains in Morocco that date back some 300,000 years ago. Up until now one of the oldest sites was in present day Ethiopia. And there are a lot of questions being raised that go back in time. But I now have a few theories of my own regarding ancient history of humans. And my theory is maybe we didn’t just evolve in Ethiopia and spread out over the world. Maybe we were evolving at different parts of the world and we all share a common DNA link. Because would this mean that life for humans originated in present day Morocco. Because the bones in Ethiopia are 100,000 years younger.

And if this is all true, what does this say about human evolution. I wonder will anymore bones be found that go back even further in human history. Or will we find out that the Earth may be older as well. We as people have so much about the world that we don’t know about. We’re so wrapped up in Image result for oldest human foundthe constructs of what man has created, that we lose sight of the nature aspects of life. Nature aspects such as how we managed to figure ways to populate ourselves. Sexual procreation is something we know and just do. But did we know that then. How expansive was our human minds? Or was it something that nature put in us to just do and we didn’t think to understand why. Kind of like any other species. They don’t know they are procreating they just do it.

But, I have another question regarding the age of man. If scientist keep finding remains that are older and older, what will this do to the faith base in society. See, the belief in a deity is from faith. There is nothing tangible Close Up Photo Of Holy Biblethat points to anything spiritual as the creation of man. Yet science has always been the obliteration of religion. Because the more we learn about our human existence, the less religion has relevance in society. For hundreds of years, there has been a clash between the science community and the religious community. And this is a fight that does not look to be slowing down anytime soon.

In the end, the findings of scientist have left us as humans baffled for centuries. And will continue to leave people baffled the more we find out. I read somewhere one time that asteroids carry cells made possible for life to evolve. Could it be that we find out that humans are the real aliens. Maybe this planet was not mean’t to support us. That in itself would have so many implications as to the age of man. Because asteroids are leftover rock from the Big Bang, which is believed to have created our universe. Maybe, just maybe there is life in another universe. But, the more we research the more we will learn.

WHO AM I: THE IMPORTANCE OF IDENTITY

“Does where you come from matter?”

I have heard my whole life regarding heritage as a African American to forget about it. You’re an American, who cares about the past. And that makes sense if not for other groups of people holding on to their heritage. Another thing I’ve witnessed in my life has been the festivals and carnivals held in the name of other people’s heritage. So if everything revolves around America, how come no one ever tells Irish, Italians, Jews, Polish, Germans, English, to abandon all beliefs from those regions. In America we still celebrate these groups with events each year.

As a matter of fact the Confederate Flag, representing a group of men who aimed at keeping us enslaved is seen as a proud heritage symbol. But when I flag the Pan-African, African American Liberation flag there is an issue. So I started to think, why? You would think we are the only group seperating, but living here in New York City gave me an insight into multiple groups who still hold on to their own groups’ heritage. Well, why is it such a problem?

For starters, having a strong ethnic identity is power. Look at the groups of people with a strong cultural and ethnic identifier: Chinese, Indian, Nigerian, Jews, and Italians. These are just a few groups who take pride in their ethnicity. So much so, that their is a preference of their children marrying within the group to guarantee the continuation of the group. But the previous groups I just named are very powerful. They are rich in success, self-respect, discipline, and feel less inferior as it pertains to others. Not that they feel they are better, they just expect more.

When I look at the population of Black people in America, we use t have this in our community. But something took place over the past 30 – 40 years that changed all that. Not to mention, Jim Crow and Slavery. We are the only group in America without names, religion, homeland, military protection, nor government that will rally for the community. Yes, we are Americans by way of legality, but in order for the system to move, it usually has to involve a victim from the White community before they act.

So it brings up the question, who am I? When you live in a world where you are so frowned upon you start to search your lineage. Hoping to find something, anything that will give you an insight into where you come from. Why is it important? Because my whole life I have been reminded that you’re only a visitor, this really isn’t your country. Then if not here, where? Free slaves founded Liberia, and they have their own country. But what is our land? If I leave America, I’m still a visitor somewhere else. So I go where do I go?

In the recent years, companies like Ancestry and 23andme have aimed to aid people in their search of self. I have often contemplated using one of these services. Researchers have spent years testing groups throughout the globe. So there is a very strong confidence in the test accuracy. People may say, who cares, but I do. Like I said earlier, I am constantly being reminded either you don’t belong or you have no history. And the more disdain you receive the more you want to find out. And I am not asking for anything any other group has: cultural identity and their “own” base.
