Devoid of religion, devoid of god, man the human ape stands naked. He thinks he has a god and religion, but ironically if this were true he wouldn't act the way he does.
Empty of logic, concerning his place in the world. He has no compassion for life as he feels he has dominion over everything, where in truth he is just an integral life form, fortunate to be sentient, though not even fitting all of the definitions of that word. He continues to kill, motivated by his ego, and quest for power, not necessity. He continues to pollute and destroy the very planet that through eons has evolved to give him life and sustenance, usually doing this because of the concept of money which he has invented, and given that concept a status above that which gives him literal life. He does not credit himself as being as rare as he is. A sad creature indeed, for there will come a day that not a trace of his existence will be visible, except perhaps a piece of plastic.
