Are we really the best creatures of current evolution, if we’re destroying everything that led to us ?
Because we’re one of the first creatures which started to occupate whole world and created their own environment instead of living in environment and trying to survive in it. Plus we are trying to understand whole universe, I donť think that beaver could do that.
In terms of evolution, which is mainly about survival and proliferation, it’s bacteria who are the best creatures. They outnumber us by far and they will survive long after we are gone. Some of them can even survive space.
The reason there is life at all after 5 mass extinction (6th is ongoing) events is because of bacteria.
So even if we screw up and kill entire ecosystems, life will propably just go on in the long run.
