We torture and kill two billion sentient living beings every
week. 10, 000 entire species are wiped out every year because
of the actions of one, and we are now facing the sixth mass
extinction in cosmological history. If any other organism did
this, a biologist would consider them a virus."

As a freshly graduated biologist, I can say that this ****** has no idea what a virus is. That distracts me from the rest of the content.

I remember when I was 15 and edgy. I thought just like that. Now that I've actually SEEN the world, and all the people here, I ******* love it. I love this planet and all the cool people here. Humans are awesome, and I'm happy to be around during some of our greatest moments in history. For every bad thing the human race can do, and does, we are also capable of so much more love and caring. Humans naturally want to help eachother. It's part of our evolution to want to help. Humans are ******* awesome. All you have to do is go out and see for yourself.

2 billion sentient living beings every week? Humans are the only sentient beings on the planet... If 2 billion of us died every week we'd all be gone inside of a month.

First, humans are not the only sentient beings. "Sentience is the ability to feel, perceive, or to experience subjectivity. Eighteenth-century philosophers used the concept to distinguish the ability to think (reason) from the ability to feel (sentience). In modern Western philosophy, sentience is the ability to experience sensations (known in philosophy of mind as "qualia"). The concept is central to the philosophy of animal rights, because sentience is necessary for the ability to suffer, which is held to entail certain rights." (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentience)
Secondly: If you are going to calculate the rate of extinction, you have to include everyone being born. Although it would be very difficult to maintain a population with that amount of deaths, but since sentient is not a term only applicable to humans, this problem does not arise.

We may have caused our fair share of damage to the Earth, but we are also the only species trying to save it

Probably my favorite line from agent smith but now that I think about it

wasn't agent smith a virus?

We don't even hold the damn record for most species killed. Cyanobacteria do. Cats come in second with 33 and we come in third with a lousy 13. See, we've driven quite a few species NEARLY to extinction, but killed very few alltogether. Plus, we try to preserve some that are probably gonna die on their own if we don't. I mean, have you ******* SEEN coral reefs and pandas? It's like nature wants those things dead, but we refuse to let go of them.

But evolution before us wiped out more species than we can ever try to imagine   
I dislike people when they say how humans are destroying the nature and whatnot   
it's not like the nature is a sentient being, then we could say that cats are destroying the nature cause they caused 33 bird species to go extinct, we are part of the nature itself and even if we kill every single living being including us the nature will move on   
its not like we're killing nature itself, no it will always adapt and change we're just screwing ourselves over

YEAH HUMANS SUCK LETS BASH HUMANITY WHILE PROVIDING NO IDEAS AS TO HOW TO HELP FIX THE PROBLEM


this is why I get pissed at Rise Against. People who bitch about how bad humanity is, but provide ZERO input on how to fix the problem, deserve to die a slow painful death



ALSO. ******* ALSO: Animals go extinct all the time. that's part of nature. We're the most powerful and influential species by far. The reason so many animals die out is because we're instinctually driven to eat other animals. It isn't wrong, it's NECESSARY.

******* NECESSARY

No they wouldn't. We'd still be an animal.

humans rule... yeah!
gotta kill everything to prove that. stupid living things...
#3 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/11/2014) [+] (2 replies)
I have to disagree, we as humanity are driven by greed, nature in its own capacity teaches through instinct not to take more than it can handle. Humans are driven by money, we destroy environments of animals just to develop another strip mall or produce another factory. Animals eat what they kill we have people who hunt for sport just for the thrill of the kill. I am by no means a animal activist or vegetarian or **** like that, I just know humans in general are greedy and contribute so much to the destruction of the planet. There is no way to fix humanity because there is no way to abolish all evil, it must remained balanced until we spiral towards our inevitable destruction.

User avatar #23 - dabronydude (05/12/2014) [-]
humans are just winning,
many animals have caused other species to go extinct and in nature all things die, change,
live and get wiped out, we simply evolved to the point of saying No to nature and are trying
to survive.
#4 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/11/2014) [-]
yeah, animals destroy the planet, humans will never change they are set in their ways, and that is why there is no way to fix us, unless EVERYONE becomes mindful of the consequences of their actions, i myself am guilty, but am too lazy to fix it
