We are not worthy to continue our crap ad nauseam.
Saying we shouldn't be would seem to be subverting the universe and reality itself in order to appease a self-deprecating ego.
I suspect if the universe itself deemed us unworthy, we wouldn't be here.
Could even be an interesting discussion there if we start to include the nature of time and intelligence outside of human understanding.

Can any of you that consider that video dumb please explain why they think it is dumb?
why would anyone even need to tell you why they think it's dumb? we literally have entire threads devoted to why the socialist wet dream, the new green deal is dumb. actually several other words serve better, such as impossible, insane, destructive, ineffective, scam, irresponsible, among many others.
lets start with that imaginary train she sees herself riding in. the latest high speed train only recently got canceled, and that's in the democrat insanity capital of California. mainly due to the extreme high cost just to build it. estimated to cost $86 BILLION. for a short line just between two cities in California, LA and San Francisco. a piddley distance of 800 miles. and remember every single time high speed rail has been tried in both the US and Canada over the years, they have failed miserably. and we are not talking about just a train between NEW York City and Washington DC, but of covering the entire country in high speed rail lines, as per the insane new green deal. we are talking about tens of thousands of miles of high speed rail lines. not only is it pretty much an impossibility to do in 10 years or less (since it certainly won't even be started before 2020 and that only IF people are insane enough to vote people into office to do it). there are quite simply not enough people trained to design and build that much rail lines in that amount of time. and it wouldn't even be ten years. since first it would take a few years just to survey and design the routes for it. these things don't just appear out of thin air after all. plus several years to train people to do the work (and there still would not be enough people to do so even then). not to mention just how the heck would it even be paid for? based on California's aborted high speed rail you are looking at over TEN BILLION DOLLARS per 100 miles. just one rail line at a minimum between LA and New York city is a distance of 2,451 miles )as the crow flies). which alone would cost at least 24 TRILLION dollars. and that is just one line crossing the country. yet the new green deal calls for the all over the entire country. basically you could say to every major airport in the US, since the whole idea is to replace air travel. and fun question, just because this is supposed to be about cutting emissions. would it even produce less emissions having all those high speed trains all over the US, instead of things like flying or driving? that all by it's self makes the whole high speed train question rather doubtful, since i strongly suspect if it is not really all that much more pollution free than flying or driving. especially when you consider all the pollution and greenhouse gases that would be produced building it in the first place.
and remember high speed trains are just one small part of the new green deal and this idiotic propaganda film (that seems to be aimed at children and teenagers). with so much more "dumbness" involed in both the new green deal and this silly, crackpot film.

The mechanisms for things like self-awareness, consciousness, etc. clearly exist in parts of the universe and I'm not at all convinced they are the sole purview of humans.
The basis was that you essentially claimed humanity should be eradicated since you deem all of us, including yourself, unworthy of existence.
