Get what right? Humanity is an extraordinarily successful species and we haven't even been on the planet for more than a few hundred thousand years. If you think the squirrels have got it right try living their lifestyle.
Sin has cursed us....
Sin.....and the human race will never get it right because we are all born rebels against a Sovereign and Holy God as we follow our pride to it's continuing destructive end....
Only Jesus Christ got it right by living a sinless life that He may fulfill the laws we break every day, that He would be bore the wrath of God on the cross. It's by HIS righteousness alone where a man may be saved from the destructive road....did that answer your question?
Because we are fallible human beings. We sin, make mistakes, are selfish, are greedy, are jealous, are envious, want revenge...the list is endless.
The first known civilisation recognised,the sumarians,sprang out of nowhere,with schooling,taxes,irrigation etc already in place from the start.It also came with a system of royalty being recognised as the ruling elite,and was tied strictly to this,deviations or attempts were punished as severely as possible,death.This system is a system of control,ideally suited to the ruling elite,with a mind to staying in place,and despite the illusion of freedom and democracy,is still in place worldwide.How can we ever adapt and improve when held mental prisoners in the status quo?
The big brain was a horrible mistake
Too many opinions on what it means to be "right."
