Evolution and the species Homo sapiens

Sapiens..... the Online English to Latin to English Dictionary reports back that it means wise, judicious as in, "a wise man, philosopher." However, one has only to read the newspapers to understand that this description of our species is at least over generous. The fight of bible thumping people over science and the evidence that life did not just pop out of the ether, is another indication that perhaps we should change our name to maybe, Homo plumbeus, or Homo bardus, or Homo profundus tardus.

I saw this video and wanted to share....
