    during the dark ages maybe not but now we are the ultimate creature. We hunt we kill and we destroy. But thats how we are, we cant help wanting to live. Everyone wants to live. If you ask this question you must want to die yourself.

    Your a human. Think of it this way. If monkeys ruled over us what would we do?. If they were superior and had all these high tech guns. What would we do? If i were you i'll just be glad that i'm a human.

    animals kill more other animals than humans, nature starts, and burns more forrest fires than humans have ever attempted, even ants have brutal wars, along with many primates and most predetory creatures, this world is not lolli pops an rainbows, it's very tough at times, . You got a pessimistic outlook, maybe the problem is not really a problem, just a fact of life on earth. So no I do not agree, you need to do some research, stop listing to 24/7 news dooms day talk shows and reading out in left field so called enviromentalist who all disagree with each other on everry issue. people are smarter than the media thinks, and things are never half as bad as reported all throughout mans history. If you want to find the bad in every thing, you'll find just the bad, if you want to find just good, you'll just find that, butr both are false, seek the middle, and let reality reveal the truths.

    Animals kill animals (domestic cats seem to do it for fun since they have reliable food source at home), lightning burns forests (when Mount Saint Helens erupted, it destroyed all the forests around it and polluted the streams and rivers to the extent that all the fish in them were killed). As for wars, think of them as population control (much like disease in animals). The planet is not a thing that has emotions, so it has no way of assigning value to actions.

    I heard a college student say that humans were the worst thing in the world. I asked him why he hasn't killed himself yet and he got ticked off.

    If you believe that humans are the worst thing on the planet, then go kill yourself.

    Humans aren't the only destructive beast. Too many of any animal can throw off an ecosystem. And not all humans are bad. It's too bad there are so many who are ignorant or angry when we could make this place even better.

    NO !! This planet was [CREATED]~!!! For the purpose of human habitation~!!. It's the bad influences that started from the mostly spirit~realm that has some feeling lowly about this whole system of things !! & since I'm sure that all are aware: We as in'hab`it'ants have the ability to make things right !!. It's our want for change is what might be what makes some feel that the ideas they have are the correct ones!?! Or was to go !?! ;-`{}`'R"r.r`r,r'.`,.

    It depends on how you look at it. I mean we are human. But you are right about we are damaging the ozone layer and it hasn't been damaged before. And if i had to pick a creature i would say the dinosaurs

    Yes, I agree!!! Humans are the most parasitic life form to inhabit the earth since it's beginning.
