I've been thinking about evolution, and it has occurred to me that there are 3 problems with it. 1.) evolution by definition is a reactionary process, so how can it look forward - eg how can we as end results of the process ask "what if?" 2.) humanity has the potential to self destruct - Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged recognised that we were the only species that could do that - how can an evolved / reactive process develop a self-destruct mechanism? 3.) At what point along the evolutionary process did it decide to split out into separate genders, and where can we point to to demonstrate this? Any thoughts?

Anything but answer my question, eh?

I am not sure why I am saying this since Mr. James is apparently gone, but I feel the need to say it anyway.  I will not think ill thoughts towards him because of this discussion.  I am grateful for the understanding I have about evolution, and looking forward to learning more.  I really don't find myself thinking, "What if...? very often in this regard.  It doesn't seem to be necessary.
