Zeresenay Alemseged Finding the origins of humanity

I love this stuff. Finding the origins of humanity, anthropology, archeology and History have been favorites of mine for a while. I guess it started when I read what to day is still a favorite of mine, namely H.G. Wells’s ‘A Short History of the World’ which despite being dyslectic, I could hardly put down… and then I discovered and went on to listen to H.G. Wells – The Outline of History audio book read by Bernard Mayes and it is a truly stunning production.

I’m a big fan of most of the Sciences and I guess that’s natural enough since as a Metallurgist/Engineer I studies a few of the sciences and drifted towards the others. The money orientated specialties bore me, to me the invention or the understanding is far more important to me than the financial rewards.

I guess if it came down to whether or not you can ‘take anything with you’, I figure knowledge, understanding and a clear conscience would be about it, and if there is a hell, it’s going to be not being able to hide the truth or your motives and if it’s a place, it will most likely be full of Lawyers (spit on the floor) Pedophiles, Politicians, Bankers, Corporate Executives, Religious Bigots, Arms Dealers, Corrupt Police, Lazy Doctors and Hummer Drivers… why would you be scared of just ‘burning in Eternal Hell, if the alternative was an eternal Hell with the aforementioned?
