A few months ago I created a thread, not so subtly seeking ideas for wiping humanity off the planet.
Possibilities for the extinction of the human race. And I recieved a lot of good ideas.

I decided a long time ago that humans had failed miserably, our history speaks for it's self in my opinion. Crusades, genocide, empirical conquest, human sacrifice, religious tyranny, pick your poison. Generation after generation we continue to make the same mistakes.

I exist in my own personal little bubble, seperate from society. From my perspective I am able to have a very wide and equitable view of the state of our planet. We are the cause of all our troubles and those of every other organism we share this planet with.

But with that being said, I am only one person. Maybe I am wrong, maybe I just am not wired properly to see a redeeming side of humanity. I am on the other hand resourceful, patient, and very persistent. I am also fair.

So I have suspended my plans for the destruction of our race to gather more information.

What do you think ATS?
Can we get it right? Or have we used up our three strikes?

We can't afford to be praising nor dooming ourselves.

We *are* - and that's all that is.

We're all heading to the same place - just some faster than others.

There's no such thing as wrong - only learning the hard way.

In the grand scheme of things, although we are a messed up bunch - We're still part of natural creation.

Most of us are about to be wiped out by TPTB, they want the entire earth for themselves, when we are gone there will be just 2 or 3 million people left who will have all the benefits of modern tec and they will live the utopian dream.

My opinion is that it's unfair to condemn an entire race in a situation like ours. Yes everyone is complicit through their inaction, but the power structures on this planet have tried, and really done quite a good job, at dumbing people down. They use advanced propaganda and hypnosis techniques to keep people complicit, and the fact that most people are completely unaware of what is going on is only partially their fault. We were born in the cage, and what's more, we were told it was freedom. Couple that situation with education systems that are more correctly called brainwashing systems and you have a populace that doesn't realize they are doing it to themselves.

I think, if the current power structures failed, and we created another tyrannical era, we would deserve extinction. But I think if you really cleaned house over the whole planet, those who would remain would not be so...evilish.

They will still need someone to haul the garbage. Everyone has their place, the problem is who decides who goes where.

As long as we continue the archaic system of placing arbitrary value upon objects and commodities as a means of depriving and controlling others? Not a chance. We are worse than doomed. We're already dead and soulless - no better than the zombie shows and movies that we make without even seeing the parallels.

It's greed that turns even the best of us into slobbering, feral, cannibalistic idiots.

If the majority of us can forsake the trap of ego and a desire to be superior to others? Then we have a chance. Otherwise? Not so much.

Even the ancients understood this - as there are stories, even in the Bible, discussing how, one day, wealth will become a curse. We are precariously close to that point now. Hell, if students will murder each other in cold blood for iPhones or Nike shoes... imagine what they'd do for a yacht, a private jet, a Bentley, or a chance to ransack a luxury estate.

The point? I think we've already passed the terminus point. I think that inertia will carry us into a new dark age and possibly extinction.

We will not be allowed to bring our world to total extinction. We think of our world as ours and nothing could be farther from the truth. Earth has become extinct in sentient population many times and has been reseeded, to start over. The biggest problem we have is the fact that many very evil beings have been imprisoned here. meaning they can reincarnate nowhere else and they took over the planet a very long time ago. They turned it into a slave planet, although most of the slaves believe they are free and that is necessary to keep them producing for the monsters that run the planet.

You are failing to see the bigger picture. You are thinking about our current configuration of society.

Modern man, in it's current form has been on Earth for about 400,000 years. Is humanity any better than it was 100 yrs ago, 1,000yrs, 10,000?

I think the answer to that is no.

That is exactly what I am talking about Heff.

And we have been doing it through out our entire existence.

I think, instead of letting us continue our course of slow assured destruction. Someone should just put us all out of our misery.

I'm just willing to accept the job.

Human race


As far as we are aware, we are officially the coolest thing in the universe.

Lets see a black hole make dorito shelled tacos...I think not.

So ya...bit of a fan on its continued existance.

Dorito shell tacos huh.

That's the pinnacle of human achievement?

I rest my case.

Extinction:

Breeds uncontrollably
Decimates habitats and other species
Pollutes continually
Kills for sport
Fakes benevolence

I think that's enough for now.

Well... unless you're the cow who ends up in the taco!


Aww. Who the Hell am I kidding. I have no idea what animal actually ends up in Taco Bell food. It might be cow.

I think it's a cow. You ingest a whole salt lick every time you eat one of those.

In the grand scheme of things, we are a species of talking monkeys hurdling through space on a tiny rock, devouring everything in our path, multiplying like a uncontrollable evolving deadly virus.

If we don't kill ourselves, something out in space will, for their own safety...

Mankind isn't going to go extinct. Someone is going to do something that reduces our numbers considerably within a few years though.

Do you want to leave the planet intact or do you want to reduce the planet to a Schwarzschild radius of 9 centimeters? Inquiring minds want to know LOL. Btw, yeah I think we've failed, failed to take control of the system of slavery and thereby failed as a species and a society.

Cheers - Dave

That is where my plans come in.

I could care less about the Georgia guidstones, eugenics, or illuminati crap.

I am talking about a few motivated individuals looking to make the world a better place. To do that humans must go.

ALL HUMANS.

Every last one of us.

Me included, I'm not special.
