    hamlet69, it was probably a huge advantage for humans, when they were "new", that they are agressive and destructive creatures. It has, sadly, become their greatest disadvantage in recent times, but that's evolution for you.

    I started a thread something like this before, so I know where you're coming from, but there doesn't seem to be a better explanation. (Of course, there's always the Biblical explanation, but I don't think that's what you wre asking for).
