I've seen a couple topics asking whether the world would be better without money, or at least the love of money. But what about us? Could the world
be a better place without humans?
Take a moment and think with me (not that I believe the world would indeed be better without us). Without humans, there would be no mass genocides,
animals would not be forced into extinction, but rather naturally selected for it, forests and rain forests wouldn't be cut down, and there'd be no
master animal to rule the planet like we do.
I'm sure there are more reasons, but are humans so truly special that we are the ones who make the world a good place, or would it just be better off
Personally, I say no. Humans are a marvel of evolution (or God, whichever you prefer). Our emotive, intellectual, and abstract ability to think are
profoundly above any other creature on the planet. Sure we do a lot of bad things, but animals eat each other, they fear and hate one another.
Humans do the same to animals (and other humans), just on a more massive scale.
Here's one vote for humans.
