I hate killing, but I'm going to give you a truth that we all run from. Our entire existence, meaning the existence of every creature from the
microbial to the giant whales of the sea, of every plant, tree and flower lives in a system of kill and be killed. "Nature" would not survive without
it. Humans cannot survive if they don't kill something every day.
Sure, we say it's okay to kill this, but not that; those, but not them. We justify killing this living thing for food, but not that living thing just
for the fun of it. But, in the end, all humans kill things.
It's what nature wants.
A tree attempts to grow higher than other trees in order to steal as much of the sun as possible, thereby killing the smaller trees (thereby killing
its own kind). Monkeys kill monkeys. Birds kill birds. Humans kill humans.
Again, I don't like it any more than anyone else, but this LIFE!
We don't want to face the fact that there aren't enough people dying. Seven billion alive today, 20 billion tomorrow, a trillion somewhere down the
line. Nature doesn't want this many people alive. The environment just won't be able to handle such uncontrolled human expansion. The wars aren't
killing enough people. Diseases are losing the battle. And we are the ONLY species on the planet without checks and balances. We were supposed to only
live for 25 to 35 years. We beat that, but we will sorely SORELY pay for it in the future.
Life is about killing. It's just the way it is.
Note: Speaking only about the numbers, the 2004 tsunami killed about 300,000 people. This number was replaced by births, not in years, not in months,
not in days, but in roughly ten hours. Make of it what you will.
