DAY 83: Stupid Freshman

Man, history has biffed so many things. I get the whole, "trial and error" concept, but come on, people. Like, who in their right mind thought it would be a good idea to divide humans based on their race, religion, or gender? Obviously, that's just it, they weren't in their right mind. Religion is somewhat understandable (this isn't to say that it's acceptable) because it's nearly impossible to prove something with a backbone based in faith. What doesn't make logical sense to me are race and gender, because they're innate characteristics that one doesn't have the option to choose. I know this is at the forefront of most discussions nowadays, but I keep reading, watching, and learning, and the more I do, the more I realize how primitive we still are. To put it in perspective, the modern form of human has only been around for about 200,000 years, but for a major evolutionary change to persist it's said to take about 1,000,000 years. That means, if we considered this evolutionary phase "Species University," we would currently only have finished our first year of higher education. Keep in mind we're on a strict 5-year plan. So young, so naive, so much to learn. Stupid, stupid freshman.
