Hydrothermal Vents and You

There are vents in the deep ocean (hydrothermal vents) that give off methane, which bacteria eat. (link HERE) The bacteria are then eaten and so on, until untold millions of crabs are able to survive, deep under water, in these little ecological niches.

Are we different from these hydrothermal vent crabs?

I say yes, we are, because we are conscious, and will increasingly learn to control our own destiny and evolution. We matter. They don't.

The crabs are an evolutionary dead end.

If you read my earlier blogs, you will see I make an argument to support the view that universe was created for conscious beings. Not vent crabs. Sorry, crabs.

Ok, so I see a weakness in your logic this time.

Perhaps you should read what many of the great minds are saying about consciousness and free will: there is no such things.

I'm not kidding.

Descart said, "I think, therefore I am." But apparently he was fundamentally wrong about that.

So you might want to rethink this blog post.

I have no idea what your point is. Apparently, you don't either.
