I’m inventing a new word. The name for a religious belief that is the opposite of evolution. I call the Extinctionists. Evolutionists are people who believe that people and animals are evolving – and getting better. Evolving into something greater – improving.. But and Extinctionist is the exact opposite. Not only don’t they believe in Evolution – but they envistion ultimate destruction. To them the end of the world is near – the end of time – and we cease to exist. They justify this position by expecting an afterlife – but if they are wrong – we merely cease to exist. We become extinct.
I have made the opposite choice – to evolve – to move forward towards a better tomorrow. Becuase after all – our existence is all we have and if we lose that – we lose everything. And if we make the wrong choices – we will merely cease to exist along with millions of other species who have failed to evolve. I say – the extinctionists are wrong. And that we should resist the direction the are trying to take us in.
