I tried to post a response here yesterday, but it didn't go through and I didn't have time to repeat it. DHW asked how I would explain the 4 groups of hominids, and the truth is, do not, and don't need to, because human is human is human. -Now this would be the point where David would jump in and try to tell me how geneticially or physiologically different they are, and I would not disagree. Yet, when looked at closely, it is noted that the difference between the four groups is minor, and that the only genetic mapping they have done is on mtDNA which only trace the maternal side of the line. Physiologically, the other groups are within ranges of variance comparable to what we see in modern humans today. So, I don't explain the other groups because I do not view them as different evolutionary groups. A human is a human is a human, and a dog is a dog is a dog.-This is not to say that the groups didn't exist, but merely that do not view them any differently than I would a differing breeds of dogs. When you look at the difference between a Mastiff and a Chihuahua: morphologically different in the extreme, and they probably would have difficulty breeding due to size differences, but they are not really different species.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
