Bloody hell, this forum seems to be a magnet for many self-loathing depressive/teenage angst ridden drama queens.
Tomorrow, a car crash will happen down the street of their residence and they'll say Mother Nature farted.
BlackOps719 sounds like the type ripe for performing massacres.
People just need something to hate now-a-days it seems.
By the way, to all those complaining about us leeching of the earth's "blood" and etc etc. Why are you even using a computer you hypocrite? Have you no idea of how your computer is powered?edit on 11-3-2011 by Somehumanbeing because: (no reason given)

Humans are an arrogant species that actually think that since we build big buildings and create roads and civilizations, that we can govern a planet.
The earth's crust only accounts for 1% of the total mass of the planet. We occupy 0.5% of that crust. Try to put things in perspective here. We occupy 0.000005% of the planet. (if my math is correct)
It's nice to be poetic, I suppose, but reality has to enter the picture sooner or later.edit on 12-3-2011 by beezzer because: speling errer
ah its so sweet to see the modern scientific rhetoric being spat out like its the gospel truth.
just like in the old days when christianity was the gospel truth.
propaganda at schools and uni clearly does work.
all you 'science worshippers' might want to consider that the science you worship which you think proves everything is unemotional and unconscious might lead you in a very strange and interesting direction in the future.
or maybe you just dont know enough science to know that the stuff i'm talking about is not so crazy afterall..
no use talking to you guys...
it'll probably take a few pole shifts before any sense gets through by the looks of it.
rapunzel222 - I coundn't agree more with the comments you have made here and it was a joy to see them, so I hope you don't leave the room.
I'd rather live in your world, or should I say reality, than many peoples' here. Science as a belief system is a pretty dodgy one to have complete faith in, and every civilisation over the course of history seem to have been convinced they knew what was what.....until the next event/discovery.
Also, as I understand things, scientific research these days goes with the money, no potential profits then don't bother. What could we be actually missing out on?
The concept of the Earth being Gaia, a living organism in her own right, has always struck a chord in me, and for years I have said that humanity is like a nasty dose of lice, initially just a nuicance, eventually a major infestation with terrible irritation.
Mother Earth having a scratch?
