Rather like someone trying to pull themselves up by their own proverbial bootstraps


Firstly, thanks for ignoring the rest of my comment.

Secondly, you undoubtedly intended that to be disparaging, but I agree with it. Why should we not attempt to improve ourselves? Humans have intelligence, self-awareness, the ability to plan, and to create language and culture. Why should we not use the tools that evolution has handed down to us to rise above nature and improve ourselves?
