Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise man")
Homo sapiens is the scientific name for us, humans , on the earth. It is a latin word, meaning – wise-man. Now the question is are we, the Homo sapiens- Human species , on this earth --- really “WISE”, in the true sense of the word.
In the Natural Habitat of our Planet , we, the homo sapiens , are the only species, that can use our intelligence, consciousness, for development of self and for others.
But, to the credit of our species is, We are the ‘sole species’ that can harm and kill other members of our species. Even the most dangerous animals, need not fear of their own kind. Have you seen any species, that kill the members of the same species? i.e., Tigers killing tigers, Deers killing deers, Parrots killing parrots, etc., In Nature, that does not happen. If at all it happens, its an exception. Ofcourse, the few carnivorous animals devour other animals , only, for their food requirements.
We, the Homo sapiens , lost the capacity to live harmoniously with each other, may be due to our intelligence, even though we belong to the same species. We have built barriers between us and fight , in the name of Religion, Caste, Class, Race, Country and other 100s of reasons, and hate each other, KILL each other. And people kill others in the name of a ‘cause’ or invent some divine or sacred causes for doing harm to fellow beings and other beings and justify the killings. This is most disgusting, horrible and sad. And we should stop calling our species as ‘wise’ or ‘intelligent’ than other species on this earth. We are the most ‘destructive’ and ‘dangerous’ species, ever inhabited, in our planet , and due to our Ignorance, going in the direction of destroying all the natural habitat of our beautiful earth, which has given ‘LIFE’ and ultimately destroying ourselves, due to our GREED. – (“Yeh Dil Maange More”)
