Maybe the Melonheads are really any genetics where intelligence is not coupled with compassion and where the cognitive elite simply do as the dumbest humans do except with a lot more brains to attain what they desire. Maybe anybody who is smart but immune to any charitable feelings for other humans based on their shared context is really a Melonhead in training. Perhaps anybody born with the dumb luck to be very bright who does not temper it with some empathy for people not as bright as he is will always just be a monster waiting to happen. Remember, no matter how big your brain, there is probably a guy right around the corner with an even bigger one who regards you as “subhuman.” Maybe there is really so little distance between all men, including Melonheads, that any of them can make the same mistakes in life and be judged unworthy for it if they are not willing to pray for grace. If the ruling classes are really so bright then how come they can only make things worse and never better? Wouldn’t it be something if they evinced real intelligence and could improve the lot of everyone else around them without having to put them into chains of one variety or another and steal away with what little they have? Now that would be a Melonhead that was worth a damn.
Perhaps the ongoing tragedy of the planet is that no matter what time you live in or under what circumstances, the real curse of all these hominids of various flavors is that none of them is bright enough to achieve any lasting peace, build anything that persists for long before it is torn down or create any principle that is any more useful than any given sentence in the Bible. In this way they can all be lumped together as different varieties of failures. Perhaps forgiveness and redemption is what every single one of them truly needs and that means that Christ and the doctrine of grace applies equally to all of them no matter what they think of themselves. If this were the case, there is only one hominid definition that truly matters and it is the division of the repentant and the unrepentant. Once you start to see this the way that God might see it all, you will find yourself saying just like he probably does … sorry, but they all look alike. There is not one of them that has not gone astray as soon as he is born. Some of them so far astray it is highly unlikely they would ever reform … others there always seems to be some small hope for.
Pondering these things gives you another kind of perspective on this subject and no matter what, remember I’m no prophet or seer and can never say for sure what happened more than 100,000 years ago. I will always just be making educated guesses.
