this the wrong way. I am not directing this at you, because it is a very common misconception.

You know what, I think they actually did it. They actually messed up our earth. This is the beginning of the end for most of us.
This misconception is really the basis for the majority of humanities current problems.
They actually messed up our earth
She was never OUR Earth to begin with, but we have treated her like she was.

People seem to think that humans are "our of place" on earth. They talk like we "shouldn't even be here".
Whether you are a creationist or an evolutionist, in either case, we are meant to be here just as much as the tress, the grass and the ocean. If you
are a creationist, then we were intentionally put here by God, who put everything
here and there is no arguing with that.
If you are an evolutionist, then we came from nature and "chance" just like the bugs, animals, trees, plants, etc. therefore we are just as much a
part of "nature" as every other living thing.
When I hear people suggest that man is somehow "misplaced" or out of place on earth, I can't help but wonder what their train of thought is. Are
you suggesting that we're "not supposed to be here"? Since "man" is the source of everything bad on earth, then we must be our own creator,
right? Are you saying that "nature" screwed up by "letting" us evolve?
My point is, Man is just as much a part of the "big picture" as anything else in nature. We are just as much "at home" on earth as the ocean, the
skies, the plants, animals and fish. Whether or not we make mistakes is another issue altogether, but this mindset that man somehow shouldn't even be
here is just ignorant.
