We fear what we do not understand Since the beginning of time God has given us the unique ability to think and learn We have been created with the necessary instincts to observe our surroundings in order to gain a broader understanding of our existence We have a natural passion to learn about what is new to us However when we observe something unfamiliar we distance ourselves from it and eventually fear its existence Our judgment prevents us from understanding and learning about the reality of its properties and characteristics It is part of our human nature to recognize ourselves as supreme dominant species when we feel that something can become a threat to our dominancy we immediately develop a tendency to fear it thus we gain an urge to destroy it Humans have a vast history of conflicts with what they do not understand This turn of events has led to paranoia and eventually the destruction of what we personally judge is a source of danger The first example that I will be presenting is the conflict between Man and Nature Since the early 1700s sailors have mysteriously lost their lives while on a journey into the unknown Tails of sea monsters were documented in books and stories of their existence were carried on from generation to generation Later we came to understand that we were only dealing with what we presently recognize as sharks The shark was a new type of species which we knew little about After the reports of shark attacks on humans the hunting of those beautiful animals was initiated By the mid 1900s thousands of dead sharks were laid on the shores It was not until a decade later that humans ultimately realized what kind of impact they were having upon this delicate species The shark specifically the Great White was an animal that we did not understand The reports of the shark attacks caused fear
