This is more of a question towards Christianity, rather then the disproof in god. i myself am an atheist, so im going to "hell" anyway for not only
not believing in him, but also questioning him and his power, so please don't state that...
Now! I, as well as many others, may have stumbled upon something. Was God wrong? Not in the sense of his existence, but in the sense of his
As most of you have noticed in other categories on this forum, many animals, invertebrates, and vertebrates are quickly disappearing off the face of
our planet, Earth, also created by god (in some minds). Some people don't see how serious this is, even if a single Genus under a single Family under
a single order disappears, it could spell desaster for our planet. An unbalanced world.
Lets take for example the Great White Shark. Every year many of them travel far distances to reach an ever shrinking food source of anchovies. When
the anchovies come for breeding season, a large amount of predators, including, but not limited to; birds, dolphins, sharks, man, and other fish. The
population of anchovies is also radically decreasing.
Besides the rapid loss of food, the Great White Shark, as with most other animals, has the worst enemy of all, Man. Man is constantly hunting animals
for skin, food, clothing, or simply collection. We destroy habitat, we pollute the air, we even have killed mass amounts of corral by the slight
increase in global temperature because of our effects on the planet.
What does this mean? Lets say we manage to succeed in the destruction of yet another species, The Great White Shark. what happens?
The loss of a major predator would be catastrophic. Eventually leading into an explosion of population in other predators. such as jelly fish.
eventually the entire oceans may have the horrible possibility of becoming unbalanced and in correct. possibly also killing of a numerous amount of
other species simply by having a newly populated predator in the waters.
Leading back to my original question. Was god wrong?
in many believes, creationism suggests that God created man, as he created many other things, or possibly all other things. But was Man a mistake?
If Man is one of the leading causes in the depletion of all these species, along with polluting the air, the water, and the earth itself, not only
that, but the overuse of natural resources, some that we can never re-gain, the abuse of deforestation, and so on. Wouldn't that mean that god made a
mistake in creating us?
or! If God did create us for a reason, wouldn't it be to destroy this planet? if so, why?
metaphorically, we could very well be gods eraser. It may not have been us that was the mistake, but earth? maybe God needs us to fix is misfortunes
by distroying our own planet?
so, i want both atheists and theists to answer these questions as they have had me pondering for quite some time. thanks for taking the time to read
my rant. Happy posting!
