I dont see humanity as just self-destructive. Humanity evolved in cooperative and competitive modes, which are highly complex.

Because something is unknown now, doesn't mean It is anything else but unknown now. Tomorrow it may be a different story. I can't see what is gained by being anything but optimistic concerning humanity. We just keep getting better and better.

Its unknowable at the time that it is unknown. The universe may be self ordering, but the human, despite instinct of self preservation is self destructive. What do you mean unierse is not perfect? Compared to what?
