It is more like what would happen if the Black and White race disappears? Asian countries and American Natives weren't involve with destructive technology without Europeans. Africa had cannibalism and killing other animals. Without Asians, white race would have destroyed the world already. Africans would've have cause an extinction to all land animal life.

Don't bring Asia or Native Americans into this. They've been living with sticks and stones before all the Tanks and Bombs came out.


And yet Asians invented ammunition, gun powder, bombs, wide spread deforestation for needs of charcoal, crossbows, exploding cannonballs, flamethrowers, Frag bombs, Hand grenades, hand cannons and land mines. So what were they inventing these things for? To not kill people and use them for entertainment purposes?


and Bruce Lee Clones!!! Gotta love this little guy, amazing for a 5 yr old.

Do you think a tree falling over wouldn't make a noise if humans disappeared?

Also, that guy David Copperfield would be screwed.

should have added, 'mic dropped' after that post.

we need to call people out more on utter b.s.


In retrospect yes, because I don't know how a person could say "Asians" have done no harm to the world when you can draw a circle around Asian countries and over half of the world population lives there, in like 1/10th of the world's landmass. Obviously they aren;t using their inventive style for producing killing machines for their own good. And there I got evil again, damnit brain.

Our sun could shoot out a nova flare and cook all life as we know it. This is what I think happened to the dinosaurs and mars.

Alan Weisman's book "The World Without Us" is good food for thought on the subject. Apologies if it's already been mentioned.

"Standing at the DMZ, you always have to be at some bunker. There are guns pointed across and guns pointed back, and you can see the propaganda going back and forth — it's only two and a half miles wide — two of the biggest armies on Earth just seething at each other. And in the midst of these hostilities, these cranes waft in. Most of their bodies are pure white; it's like innocence falling down into the middle of human mayhem. They light down — they're light enough that they don't touch off land mines — and most of them winter there."

The universe maybe would be happy, mother earth in any case. Maybe nearby living alien populations in the universe would be happy.
The nature would recover, animals would live in a paradise.

It´s just us humans that harm everything, to be honest.

I guess the earth would feel like a dog that has become freed from fleas after years!

It is the nuclear one that is the big problem without people to look after those reactors , ship in all the fuel to keep them going et etc this planet would be a waste land very quickly if anything of any magnitude happened to it .

The Chinese invented gunpowder, rockets (and used them in warfare) and other nasties.

If there were no humans the Earth would continue to warm, just like it did in the age of dinosaurs, and then it would cool, and glaciers would cover much of the northern hemisphere. Animals of all kinds would continue to become extinct, and new animals would arise. Predators would continue to kill and eat herbivores in great numbers, and no EPA would be "regulating" what species lived or died. Continents would continue to drift apart sand collide, and seal levels would continue to rise and fall. Carbon emissions would fall, then rise again, with no help from a carbon tax.

Earth abides, no matter what. The only thing that would be different is that self-hating humans who blame themselves for every quirk in the Earth would no longer be whining about it.

The funny thing is... Asians gave up on the technology and guess which race used it to conquer the world? Exactly.

Ummmm what? I could kinda see the Native American in respect to the lack of mass settlement's due to having a way of life that followed the migration patterns of wildlife and certain locations for seasonal abundance of plants. However I am sure that giving enough time that they too would have built a industrious way of life if left undisturbed as populations rise and resources become more scarce.

Asia on the other has had a long history of industrialization. Even the rice patties are a monoculture that wiped out the pre-existing habitats and they have been around for almost ever. In modern times they have some of the most polluted and overpopulated areas in the whole world.


Almost all cultures kill other animals for food...not sure where you are trying to go with that statement as the average Asian diet is far more varied in terms of meat consumption. Literally anything and everything is consumed in Asia one way or another. Cows,pigs,chickens,horses,dogs....dolphins,whales,sharks, every crustacean imaginable. Hell the Japanese even figured out how to eat one of the most poisonous fish in the world.


en.m.wikipedia.org...
(This is the crazy poisonous puffer fish dish)

Just my two cents for free.

But, the Natives didn't fight for Gold or Money. That is a big difference. They would probably be less pollution and more living with animals. That is their culture with Spirit animals.

The world would become more beautiful to look at whilst being like that thought-experiment tree falling: does beauty exist if nobody can see it?


Meadows and forests would become wild and the seas would explode back into life and diversity again. Even my local stream would see a return of freshwater shrimp and the ponds would be teeming with pondskaters and caddisflies again.

The UK is devoid of apex predators so I can imagine the wild deer would spread out whilst domesticated animals would die out in a generation. Of course, that would bring with it a couple of seasons of overwhelming numbers of flies. I can imagine the air being alive with the buzzing of dark clouds of insects and the stench of millions of pig, sheep and cattle carcasses tainting the air.

Once the equilibrium was found, (imo) nature would tick-tick-tick along until the next iteration of sentient life evolved. Then again, would our 'asses-out' cousins from the rainforests not remain? They were doing fine for thousands of years and could carry on without blinking if the rest of us disappeared.

Good OP mate. Lots to think about there

Well you are mistaken, The Mongol Empire ruled nearly all of Asia and tried to move into Europe, so imagine how wide spread that army was, and then the Persians and Georgians pushed them out to create their own independent countires from the Mongol Empire, and then the Western countries overtaken by the Mongols started to decline fast by revolting and the Ukrainians and Belarusians revolted caused the Chinese empire to draw back their forces. So basically, the Mongol Chinese tried to their greatest extent to take over all the land they knew of and then were too wide spread and their ideologies didn't mix with the west and were turned upon.

Asians never gave up on technology, that is ridiculous. A nation that gives up on technology will fail, and the Chinese/Asians still prosper in a way to this day, proof in point.
