Wow... I am always humbled by the beauty of our planet.

This just got me thinking. The human perception of beauty in nature can't just be a coincidence. What if humans evolved the ability to perceive the beauty of nature as a planetary defense mechanism? I believe that if humans were emotionless droidlike beings, we would have destroyed our planet (or ourselves) centuries ago. The human perception of nature's glory is possibly something that we had to attain in order to prevent global catastrophe.

Unfortunately, too many people live in cities now. "Civilization" is much too industrialized for our own good. Thus the destruction of our planet's beautiful rainforests and animals...

Thanks for the image links, however are they in a larger format than the link you sent?

Photobucket shows them a t 480x319 or something much smaller than I was hoping. If not thanks for trying still love them.

Well one thing you could try (but as far as I know it won’t work on some browsers, although I could be very wrong) try and copy and paste the picture from the opening post, The paste it onto paint, then save it to your compute and it may be bigger or im not sure if this would work but try enlarging t on paint.

Im not computer clever as you can see ^

I went through literally thousands of pages today I can’t seem to find them anymore that's why I had to link them via photo bucket.

Purely magical photographs and yet somehow very disturbing. What is this world going to be like for our grand childrens grand children. Dear oh dear, one day we are going to all wake up and realise just how destructive we are.

God bless planet earth and all that sails on her.

At the rate which we are going, in 10 years these places/scenery will exist only on pictures.

We as most the intelligent creatures on this planet are doing our 'intelligent best' to destroy our beautiful world.

Beautiful. Let's hope your message gets throught to the right people. But I must say I'm not holding my breath.

Try copying them onto paint which is on your computer, then saving it to your computer from that and then make it your screen saver

People don't destroy nature because they like it. Most of them need to survive. Blame "civilization". Where you can't eat if you don't build empty houses and cars and cruise ships.

Thank you OP for the wonderful pictures our our home.

As for our destruction of the natural world, I am reminded of a line from Moonstruck.

"Don't # where you eat."

Well I didn’t take the pictures so I can’t be fully sure of that but either way you’re kind of missing the point of the entire thread sadly.

beautiful pictures, when I look at them I get a image of how we should all live carefree and not have to worry about going to a job or paying the government, it would be great just to live off the land.
