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.

GONE AND FORGOTTEN: WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF ALL PEOPLE VANISHED FROM EARTH?

“What if we weren’t around?”


I sometimes think about what life would be like if people disappeared from Earth. My intrigue sparked when I first saw the television show on the Discovery Channel Life After People. It was a one hour show that would explain what happens if people were to vanish from Earth. The show talked about the animals would reclaim the land, and how long it would take for the building we built to collapse. Almost immediately, grass and trees would grow into the buildings and engulf vehicles. What’s the most interesting is how long would it take to cover up any reminisces of our existence? Will that time ever come where people won’t be here on Earth? What would an Earth without us look like?

As time progress, in a few billions years the sun is suspected to swallow up Earth. My question is, will there be people on Earth when this happens? If so, can you imagine the hell they’ll go through when this happens. But, if you know anything remotely about the science involved, people will be dead long before this happens. Well why, why would people be dead long before this happens? It’s from the fact that we only have a limited room for growth and only so many resources that contribute to our quality of life. And because the Earth is a living breathing organism in itself. So it can’t last forever, yet it’s traveling through the cosmos to God knows you where. But speaking of God, that sounds like an interesting theory. Could religion possibly be right, or maybe not?

Or, what if people die out here, but the evolution starts over once again. Maybe, because after the sun engulfs the Earth, other planets will eventually follow suit. Then the universe will reach a point where the universe can no longer expand, then we will have yet another big bang. The universe will sustain back to its original state and expand once again. Then there will be yet another ability for evolution to take hold. Could that possibly mean as human die off, we will reemerge. Or is it possible that the universe has expanded beyond capacity before and we are leftover from some previous universe?

In the end, a world without people is hard to comprehend to us, but not in the universe. We are very small in the grand scheme of things. Humans on Earth are like a grain of sand on a beach, and Earth in the universe is a grain of sand on an even bigger beach. So our existence or nonexistence is small, but my intrigue is open nonetheless.

MAKING MOVES: SPORTS TEAMS THAT HAVE MOVED AND PLACES THAT NEED A FRANCHISE

“What’s with these sports moves?”
Growing up, there weren’t that many sports shake-ups regarding franchise moves. But, just in my small time as an adult, I have witnessed a few moves that were odd to me as well. There were the Vancouver Grizzlies to Memphis, Tennessee and the Charlotte Hornets to New Orleans, then Hornets to be renamed to Pelicans. Don’t forget the expansion team in Charlotte called the Bobcats. And how about the move from Seattle Supersonics to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Now that’s just the NBA, don’t get me started on the NFL. In the past couple of years St. Louis Rams moved back to Los Angeles along with soon to be San Diego Chargers to LA. Oakland Raiders are now moving to Las Vegas. Well, why the moves?
In my opinion, the main reason for the moves are because of financial opportunities. Oakland Raiders might be able to make more money in Vegas than Oakland. Or how about the Supersonics leaving Seattle; could it be that more revenues are being generated in Oklahoma? Because to us as the fans, we just want to see our favorite sports teams play. But to the front office of these organizations, it’s a business like any other multinational organization. They are profit maximizing firms that must adhere to their bottom line. But, it is all about money for the moves? Or could there be another reason for the changes?
There is another reason, and that is that issues concerning the stadiums can run in excess of a lot of money. For instance, the team owners don’t own the stadium where they play. So there are a lot of tax dollars being allocated to these stadiums, and that means money from tax paying citizens. And if you’re a franchise that has not been winning games, you might have to move. People will grow to resent the organization because their money is being spent on a non winning team. Now, you ask, how does winning effect the economics of a city. Take Cleveland for instance, when Lebron James went to Miami, the city lost a lot of money. But later recouped money once he returned. Why, because local businesses were making money due to the Cavaliers winning. Places such as restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and hospitality services.
The third option for moves, are to build a new loyal fan base. When the Seattle Supersonics moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City Thunder, a new base was created. There is a whole generation that doesn’t even remember the Seattle team. And with the past few seasons making the playoffs, they have emerged in this new city as a basketball powerhouse. Could this be the direction more franchises go for? How about certain teams that should move? How about the Buffalo Bills in Buffalo, New York or how about when the New Jersey Nets came to Brooklyn, New York. Some of these places should move and it’s for their own benefit. More people are willing to jump on board, and the reach is not only in the city, but nationwide; along with global building. Trust and believe, Brooklyn, New York is a much bigger market for basketball than the state of New Jersey.
So overall, what now? Will we see even more moves in the years to come? Some of these teams are still in smaller markets. Markets that are not as attractive to people as the bigger places. Los Angeles is better than St. Louis and Las Vegas is better than Oakland. Now, not all moves are good, but for whatever the reason, dollars and cents are the bottom line. And will be the reason for changes unless there is a better deal for other reasons to stay.
