|Nature - it couldn't give a shit!|
People could evolve to be more convenient too. Like take this gay marriage thing for example. If we could just have millennia of human evolution coalesce into a singularity of convenience none of this would be going on either. First up, there would be no genders or sexuality. It's not like we'd even look the way we do now. We'd just be these large, soft, silvery coloured balls. Nourishment would be taken from the air by osmosis and the overall population would be kept stable by the fact that each ball could only produce a single offspring, with the parent ball dying and providing nourishment to the other balls as soon as the birthing was complete. There'd be no need for family or community or the arts or conversations about the whites and the blacks and them from over there. No heteros, no homos, no in-betweenies because when the world is just a big ball covered in smaller balls all knocking together and saying nothing it doesn't matter what your name is and where you come from. Well, that's what you'd hope for at least. No doubt a fly would get into the ointment somewhere. Still, at least it would be a good place to start from - a bunch of squishy balls rolling around the fields.
Ah, that'll be the dog scratching to come in again. Here she is, always laughing. I wonder will she be as happy when she's a barrel on one corner of my raft. Half five now and the sun's already up. I can see a couple of bullocks out there in the field trying to ride each other. Not ones to let having their balls crushed in a vice put them off a bit of the oul sex. Take that intelligent design!
