I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed, and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are like a disease, a “cancer” if of this planet. hahah, I doubt if humans are as devestating enough to the planet to be called “cancerous”. However, we’re certainly not good for anything. We’re all selfish, generally mean creatures, who can’,t even survive in a natural world (No fur for warmth, no claws or venom to defend ourselves), and what kind of animal destroys it’s own habitat? The ONLY thing we have going for us is so-called “intelligence”, but is destroying the planet for all other living creatures, ESPECIALLY ourselves, really that smart?
First of all, are you able to be objective about these questions? Cancer grows unchecked, out of balance with the rest of the bodily systems (planet species) – Destroys healthy body systems as a result of its mindless growth (other species; current human-caused extinction rate is over 3 species per hour http://www.whole-systems.org/extinctions.html) – Consumes bodily resources in great quantities depriving healthy parts (energy, natural resources) – Threatens the life of the host, often destroying itself along with its host. Do you think that humanity is the cancer of the Earth?
Humanity does not grow unchecked; it is limited by resources, geography and predation (mostly disease, war, and genocide). It is better able to compete, starting with walking upright, the opposing thumb, and the development and use of intelligence. Human growth is not mindless. Much of the ‘developed’ world does lavish resources upon itself, but it is learning to restrain that hunger. In recent history it has acted without regard to its damage to its environment, but modern environmental sensitivity has stemmed that trend and is actually reversing it. If humanity is the cancer of the earth, it is the only known cancer actively working to cure itself.
