You act as if we are harming nature.
FOOLS! WE STILL ARE PART OF NATURE!
The computers we use are as natural as the dams that beavers make!
Our space craft are made of materials found on earth, and reconfigured to fit our needs.

While it's sad that we are an inconvenience to other creatures and forests,
we have to accept the fact that our cities and byproducts, are entirely natural results of our existence.

Beavers build dams for homes, which then block rivers and kill thousands of fish by cutting off their water supply. Predatory invasive birds and animals travel to other countries in search of food, driving native species into extinction.

At the rate we are going, we're an unstoppable train of destruction, and you know what?
That's okay. It's okay to be cruel, merciless, and heartless. It's how evolution brought us up to be. Our ancestors had to die countless upon countless times, in various horrible ways due to the merciless ways of nature. And what... are we supposed to simply turn the other cheek and be merciful?

We are at an age at which we question whether we have our own souls or not, with our knowledge exponentially increasing every year that goes by, despite the negligence that is more visible in our population today.

Our useage of prosthetics and artificial organs, is simply a reconfiguration of the materials found and fabricated in mother nature. Nature doesn't give a damn about who lives and who dies- it either tries to replace the dying species, or tries to save them by adapting them to the new scenario.

Birds now make nests in our gutters, and rats live in our sewers, with a bountiful supply of water not easily found without rivers.

The world can live with us and without us.
Evolution has finally come to a close; we can fight off death, and doubled our lifespans
from 40 years to 80 years. We can replace organs.
We can revive the dead with defribulators.
We are the fittest, and we survived.
Victory comes at a price, and we are the victors.

This is actually garbage.
Sorry to break it to you funnyjunk but beauty isn't everything.

This is manipulative and false.
Use the image of nature as a beautiful woman. Make it seem as though the fierce competition and force of nature isn't what brought us here. Its just because we're dicks.

You can't "destroy nature" because it can adapt and change. The biggest mass extinction we have record of is the appearance of oxygen. We are fucking it up so that WE can't survive here.

Ok then. Abandon all technology, transportation and convenient supply systems and go live in the woods and eat mushrooms/hunt for all your food and clothing.   
   
Oh wait. You won't. FYI, we're expending A LOT less poisonous emissions than any time in the industrial age.

Kind of related, I guess.

Yes, I realize Death looks like an emo with antlers.

I wish i could be as oblivious as all the top commenters here, its sad to see that the general consensus is everything's all okay and hunky dory, and if you think differently you're a hippy fedora wearing fag. Humanity is really fucking up nature, consuming before reproduction of resources can catch up, go look at all the hunters slaughtering baby seals or snow leopards for their furs and tell me humanity isnt destroying nature.

We're not killing the world. We don't have that kind of power. We're killing ourselves. When your body gets invaded by germs/viruses, it warms itself up to kill them (fever). The earth will gladly do the same with us.

I see this as Earth smiling down on us as if we were nothing to her. You may as well be pointing a water gun at her. The people are brittle, fragile, breaking apart in the corner behind a smog of pollution while Mother earth is completely unaffected. This isn't a statement on how we're killing the world; it's about how we're killing ourselves and the earth is above it all. The motherly figure isn't upset, she holds a neutral smile looking down on us committing suicide. You can attempt to pull that trigger, but she isn't the one who will be affected.

Or at least that's what I got out of it.

Quoting ryderjamesbudde, who deleted his account & the original comment:

"Every species pollutes, but only one species tries to stop it. Every species gets sick, but only one can figure out why and stop it. We can't run very fast, yet we are the fastest living things on the planet. We're not very strong, yet we can move mountains. We have no wings, yet we've flown higher than any animal can imagine. Our voices aren't very loud, yet we can talk to our brothers on the other side of the planet, even further than that. I have seen more than the keenest of hawks, gone faster than the quickest of all cheetahs, moved more than the strongest ox, and I'm only a sixteen-year-old human. No species is perfect, but we are the only ones who are trying, and you misanthropic motherfuckers think we are a disease on the face of planet earth, as if we are not mother nature's offspring, but an awkward orphan that was not adopted, but who simply forced it's way into the family.

Oh, yeah.

The strong "humanity is cancer" message. The idea that humans don't give a fuck about nature when the entire concept of nature is a man made idea and the idea that humanity doesn't care about nature is an idea made by people as well. If people didn't care about nature, we wouldn't say we didn't; we wouldn't constantly complain about dead animals and deforestation; we wouldn't devote a considerable amount of scientific research and work to reversing the negative effects we and other species have had on the planet; we wouldn't be the creatures that care more about a process that other species couldn't possibly comprehend

People say it's our nature to destroy our environment, but most of us don't take pride or gain any satisfaction from the destruction of nature, and in popular media, the destruction of nature has been made into a symbol of what not to be. You can't convince me I am a part of something horrible if everyone around me is so willing to hate humanity because of the things we supposedly are inclined to do.

I mean, mother nature isn't even a real thing. It's a personification of what humanity likes about nature, but what if I asked you if you would you be willing to save all the venomous spiders? The disease ridden insects? The diseases in general? You do realize that death and destruction are as natural as beautiful waterfalls and big trees right? You do realize that nature is at war with itself? That it constantly kills and rebirths itself? And that when it starts to face some sort of damage, it always invents some sort of vehicle to reverse said damage? We have done the most damage, but we have reversed the most.

People should stop acting like they're so wise just because they can point out the flaws in things. Naivety and cynicism are equal forms of cluelessness.

"I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in human evolution. We became too self aware; nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, a secretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody’s nobody. I think the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal."

"We are creatures that should not exist by natural law"
Oh go fuck yourself.
Things that "should not exist by natural law" do not exist, because it's against the fucking laws of nature.
And for exactly whom should we "deny our programming and walk hand in hand into extinction" ? The rabbits? Why? So that this stupid floating rock could be rid of one its most prominent feature?
Who do you think humans are anyway? We are the fucking planet. We were molded by it over the course of millions of years and as such we are its most perfect and beautiful creations.
Just because we have done, and will probably continue to do some pretty horrible things to each other does not overshadow all the incredible things we have accomplished. And they truly are mindblowingly amazing. I mean, recently, we sent a goddamn machine to fucking MARS! MARS - a planet MILLIONS of miles away from us!! And we get images and data from it! Do you have any fucking clue of how awesome that is, in the truest sense of the word. We are constantly learning new things about the universe, and in turn we are learning about ourselves. Something that no other species is capable of even comprehending.
We are beings of almost limitless potential who are just as capable of great acts of compassion and love as we are capable of doing unspeakable evil.
If we give into hatred and bloodlust, with the technology we have today we will without a doubt wipe ourselves off the face of the planet. A failed experiment, ultimately just a small blemish, we won't have harmed the planet in the slightest, it has had vulcanic eruptions more devastating than our entire history.
But if we stopped being greedy fucking assholes, lay down our weapons, realise that we are all one and that the most important thing we have in this world is each other. That hate and war and the suffering we cause is just a manifestation of our own fears. That love truly does conquer all..
Then and only then can we start exploring the universe in peace.
