It seems to me that God/Universe/Nature whatever you want to call force that organizes things really likes life, at least on planet Terra. We find
life in all sorts of places our science never expected, doing all sorts of things. Evidence for lost species apparently rather quickly replaced in
their ecological niches by new ones.
Many appear to have a function in the great mosaic of life, perhaps all and we humans just haven't figured it out yet.
Bees pollinate plants helping to bring forth the fruits and feed many species.
Bacteria explodes into life to gobble methane that might be dangerous for
Lions chase and eat gazelle, gazelle eat grass, the grass eventually eats the
leavings of both the gazelle and the lion.
Nature appears to have designed things very well indeed.
So here is what I don't get about all the 'green' types that are so militant
to 'protect' nature.
Didn't nature also design us humans? (lets put aside all the stuff about
aliens for the moment)
I see humans with huge 'movements' to save the tigers or the polar bears or
the owls or all sorts of things, if we are supposed to by natures plan care
for the earth where is the movement to save mosquitoes or the virus that
causes smallpox (didn't we pretty much make that one go extinct?Did nature replace it with AIDS?) Did nature
leave a list for her gardeners that I just haven't seen?
Or is it possible nature actually means for humans to make changes? Could too
much carbon have gotten locked up in coal and oil and nature needed it
released to keep feeding her lovely green plants? Maybe she really wants a
warmer earth? Will that hurt humans? Likely, but so what if its for the
greater good to the universe?
Isn't it wrong of us humans to pick and choose what lives and what dies on a
