Fallacy of Holocene Extinction Thesis


American scientists are reported to have studied and concluded a prediction of mass extinction of species including humans on the Earth, unless present ways of humanity are changed. According to them, this would be the sixth extinction process on the Earth with one of these being extinction of Dinosaurs 65 m years back. Another conclusion of the study is that animals are dying at a rate 100 times of the normal death rate as an indicator of the beginning of the mass extinction.

First of existence of dinosaurs on the planet is doubtful as nothing can be certainly said about what happened even 1 million years back what to talk of 65. What is presumed comes from shear imaginations of a few persons who are managing their lavish livelihoods through such theses without doing any productive work useful to humanity.

Dinosaurs are said to be gigantic flying animals which is quite impossible. Natural evolution causes enlargement of size of a living species only when it is too much lethargic and gets lavish food at the place of its lying. Such a species of life has no chance of flying.

Birth and Death Rates of Animals

Death of animals at a very high rate as reported is due to their taking birth at even higher rate. Overall result is that number of species as well as population of each on the Earth has been on the rise. Any observant person of over 60 years of age would easily concur on this through his/her observations during the last 50 years.

Genesis of Life

About genesis of life, Scientists opine that it evolved once some thousands of million years back and species have been evolving from that genesis since then. This thesis too is wrong. Life keeps on evolving in microform and then evolving every moment of time wherever suitable environment is available.

What goes Extinct?

Any species of life becoming redundant in overall designs of the Nature goes extinct on its own. It is an autonomous process like that of evolution.  Species of life go on becoming redundant and go on becoming extinct all the time. Humans commanding the planet in their own selfish interests, their moves may make redundant even some worthy life species also. For such mishandling of affairs of life, humanity is made to pay a price in terms of miseries.

About Extinction of Humanity

Human life is no more dependent on natural circumstances for the humanity choosing a highly protected lifestyle path using their intellectual faculties, altogether different from that of Nature. However, the Nature still governs lives of wild animals. So humanity would never go instinct for natural reasons. Only death rate will remain high for higher birth rate. About a century back, a few thousand deaths of humans at a locality used to make a great difference, but today death of a million humans becomes a thing of the past in a few days. See the cases of recent disasters in Haiti in Africa and Badrinath in India.

In-spite of the humanity being in command of human life as a whole for its intellectual way of living, there is going to be a change of composition of human life – from the present with physical dominance to intellectual dominance.

Division of Humanity

Over a period of about 3,000 years, some humans have been working intellectually while most others rely on physical work for their livelihoods. From the point of view of intellectualism, this puts humans into two distinct classes – sub-humans and super-humans, with the former performing physically with their bodies, the latter use their intellect. Fundamental difference between the two classes is their working sub-consciously and consciously. It is expected that these two classes would come to recognition in another 1 century which would lead to a clear division in humanity into sub-humans and super-humans.

Extinction of Sub-human class

With machines taking over physical operations and doing better than humans, and artificial intelligence being used to control machines, sub-humans would soon become redundant and become extinct. This would reduce total human population on the planet to a great extent, eliminating many problems humanity is facing today due to overpopulation. That would be the golden period for human life on the Earth. Let us hope this happens soon.
