Genetic evidence shows that all of us are the descendants of a tiny group of modern humans living in Africa around 70,000 years ago. In other words, we are all brothers and sisters sharing the same family tree originated from a few hundreds of Africans. Then why are there so many hatreds among people with different colors or different beliefs?

Hatreds cause conflicts. Conflicts fuel wars. The world is spending an astronomical amount of resources on military activities. Why are we being prepared for killing one another instead of helping each other for the survival of humankind?
