In a sense, I agree with you and I intentionally wrote this
Nevertheless, we humans _must_ demonstrate our God
given gifts and that is strictly a day by day (perhaps moment
by moment) matter. If I remotely recall (IIRR), the English
language is littered with references to "dinosaurs" and
"Neanderthals" (now both extinct) that indirectly imply that
survivability _is_ a real measure of aptitude. It is our faith
that the God fearing person is the one who will ultimately
triumph over the wicked and the perverse, but "God fearing"
does imply that we know our own responsibilities to that
There are some possible scenarios where the human
race could perish against all sincere, genuine and God
fearing efforts to the contrary, but these examples are
scant few compared to the multitude of foolish acts of
rebellion to God's wishes.
by Grace alone we proceed,
