A Member Of A Fragile Species

“I am a member of a fragile species, still new to the earth, the youngest creatures of any scale, here only a few moments as evolutionary time is measured, a juvenile species, a child of a species. We are only tentatively set in place, error prone, at risk of fumbling, in real danger at the moment of leaving behind only a thin layer of of our fossils, radioactive at that.”
(Lewis Thomas, “Fragile Species”)

  1. My family every time say that I am killing my time here at web, however I know I
    am getting know-how every day by reading such pleasant articles or reviews.

  2. Fragile…yes. Tentative….perhaps. However, we were created by an all powerful God in His image, and made to be the dominate beings on His planet earth. Yet, we must rule with compassion. We must serve with humility. And we must be aware that, in all of this, we are very much fragile and tentative…
