So you're saying that the minute our ancesors picked up a stone, and made it
into a tool, they were laying the foundations for our downfall? Or that early
metalurgists were doing the same? Surely it is *through* our use of natural
resources that we are allowing for greater evolution? How else could we support
a growing population? Without our use of resources to support the population,
there wouldn't be any possibility of evolution...
