Mother Gaia

Mother Gaia, I come on behalf of all humans to apologize
for destroying nature and beg for forgiveness.
Oh my beloved
We' re sorry for being so selfish,
We never meant to kill nature.
That wasn' t what I mean by .
Nature is adaptable. No matter what you
do to it it will simply change and take on
new forms. it has survived worse things
than you.
You are however in the process of
changing it so much that you can' t
live in it. You' re not killing nature,
you' re killing yourself.
That' s what mean by .
You think that just because you can' t
live, then nothing can,
You' re ******* yourself over
big time and won' t be missed.

Every species pollutes, but only one species tries to stop it.
Every species gets sick, but only one can figure out why and stop it.
We can't run very fast, yet we are the fastest living things on the planet.
We're not very strong, yet we can move mountains.
We have no wings, yet we've flown higher than any animal can imagine.
Our voices aren't very loud, yet we can talk to our brothers on the other side of the planet, even further than that.
I have seen more than the keenest of hawks, gone faster than the quickest of all cheetahs, moved more than the strongest ox, and I'm only a sixteen-year-old human.
No species is perfect, but we are the only ones who are trying, and you misanthropic ************* think we are a disease on the face of planet earth, as if we are not mother nature's offspring, but an awkward orphan that was not adopted, but who simply forced it's way into the family. The house to man is the web to the spider.
What you're living in was once in the ground, it was all apart of the earth once, and it still ******* is, the pollutants in the air were once in the soil, and when the day comes that the last bit of green vanishes from this rock, it will still be far more spectacular than it was before life developed on it.
There is an infinity of beautiful secrets hidden throughout the universe, from the smallest of particles, to the most massive celestial structures that your mind can barely imagine, these natural marvels would never be appreciated without us.
You think humans are the only ones causing extinction? They're not. But we are the only ones attempting to stop it. The earth is better off with us.

The 'pollution' made by other animals is taking a **** . It is biodegradable and fertilizes the soil. You're flat out ******* wrong. On the other hand, I think that those stupid enough to support fossil fuels and not the better alternatives (we could be raking the surface of the moon for helium 3 right now but people are more likely to support a war than a space program) yet we're still killing ourselves. China is going to have a cancer epidemic and the US is next if it continues with it's pollution. It's not just global warming, you're dumping chemicals into your food, water and air.

Actually, we do have one evolutionary perk. The way our hips are designed, we are designed to run long distance, and a fit (Kenyan) human can outpace any animal over a long distance race. A horse may be faster, but the human will still be running by the time  the horse has tired.

1) your comment doesn't make gramatical sense.
2) By calling humans cockroaches and then saying we won't survive is counter-intuitive cockroaches by there very nature survive. While humans will eventually reach other stars seeing other races we will not have changed, we will still abuse other nations and races for there resources. But they will cheer when we go
3) Humans will, in some form, survive it is in all of our natures. why do you think sacrificing our well-being for others is so hard for us, we survive and we will commit genocide in order to save our selves.
4) We survive at the cost of others, if we reach past our own star you better believe that we would try to exploit them
User avatar #73 to #65 - rhetoricalfunny (05/03/2013) [-]
1) While my command of the finer points of grammar is rather lamentable, it is insignificant because you still understand what I mean.
2) By calling humans cockroaches I equate them to a pest. The metaphor isn't intended to replace every aspect of the original subject with every trait of the compared. Only to the ones that demonstrate the point the speaker is making.
3) It's in our nature to survive, yet it's also in a Crow's nature. It is nature to survive. It was in the nature of dinosaurs to survive as well, however they no longer exist. While it is true that there was a force no one could predict or control involved. In our case we think we can predict and control whatever catastrophe looms on the horizon. The simple idea that humans can endure anything is nothing but self centered. It is true that we have endured many things that no one can look at and consider insignificant. But compared to the might of the earth? No, this is something we cannot survive.
4) No, we will not reach other stars. I find the idea of looking and reaching other stars so ******* funny. It's like you think you're free to **** on the planet we have because there is another out there. Yes, there are millions of planets capable of sustaining our life. But neither you, nor your children, nor the Seven generations after you will see these places.

just commenting on your 4th point.
how do you know that we can't reach another solar system? we have already been beyond our solar system, albeit with probes, and to have touched down on other planets once again with only probes. you said that we could not in 175 years we cannot reach the other stars; this i agree with but eventually we will i'm oing to estimate about 500 years before we land a probe on a planet in a solar system not of our own. With another 100 years before we have a crude colony on said planet. In 600 years we will acomplish what no other race, to our knowledge, has done before, and i find this facinating. Even if it takes humans 1,000 years to reach another solar system we will. we have roughly 5-6 billion years before our sun destroys the earth. as you said we are pests, and pests are hard to get rid of. By the time we reach foriegn stars both you and i will be long dead, both forgotten by time, as will both of our 7 generations after us and the next 7 and the 7 after that; but by the 40th Generation we will finally touch foreign stars.
User avatar #130 to #126 - rhetoricalfunny (05/03/2013) [-]
I'm sorry but have you even seen the state of the world? We're more likely to destroy ourselves in nuclear war then we are to reach the stars. Let alone have the technology and funds to inhabit other planets. On our current course we won't even see 40 generations of humans.

There is first the issue of finding an inhabitable planet. A chance so absurdly slim it may as well be impossible. Especially considering the chances that this planet even exists. Now the universe is greater than we will ever comprehend, and they exist. But we will never find them. We will never find them. The idea that we even may serves no purpose other than to reassure you. We do not have another planet to go to. If we **** this one up, we're ****** . We will not see human's continue.

You seem to only be going on the assumption that the sun is our only timer. Have you taken nothing from the original post? Because you still fail to see what a self centered human you are. Did you know popular predictions for human extinction are at 100 years from now?
I can guarantee you we will not see other stars.

Here`s a Vsauce video for reference on space. The thing worth noting is that this is given we were to focus solely on space travel, and managed to solve all of our problems here on earth.
Here is the doomsday argument, which focuses solely on growth of the population. ars-population-explosion.html
And this is the 100 years thing.

Interpret this as you will, but given the state of the world now, I cannot see any universe where we find another planet.

well i appreciate the links, and have realized the difficulty of reaching foreign stars. I still think however a small number of basic colonies will exist on say the moon. While i agree with the one planet one chance thing too, we could at least in some form continue to stall out the extinction of humans until say 250-500 years or so. it's also kinda depressing actually that we will never go beyond Sol.

No, this quote is the stupidest **** I've read.
Humans are not natural,
"We can't run very fast, yet we are the fastest living things on the planet.
We're not very strong, yet we can move mountains.
We have no wings, yet we've flown higher than any animal can imagine. "
Everything in nature demands a balance, and where is ours? We claim to have transcended the natural law.
We take and take and take. We only try to fix something because we ****** it up in the first place.
Just because everything we know had come from the earth at one point, doesn't mean everything is natural. We produce pollutants, that destroy living matter and would never occur naturally. Ever.

Nothing ***** more over than humans do. Yet want to know something, other forces fix more than we do. Despite our "trying."

Without us animals could reproduce and adjust themselves to their environment. Predators and prey would exist with harmony, neither outpopulating.
The Ozone would fix itself.
Endangered species could reproduce.

Humans are ******* themselves. And though there are people who are trying, assuming that as a whole the world is better off is just ******* stupidity.

In regards to the picture. You cannot own land, you cannot ******* own the sun or the stars. Because you will die. And the world will succeed you again. No matter what we as humans do, ultimately the world will claim us, and everything. EVERYTHING we've made will be brought back to nothing.

The only way we can ever hope to succeed is to find a balance. By living with nature and not trying to conquer it.

Because you cannot conquer nature. You cannot transcend natural law, and trying will reward you with a violent reclaiming of the balance you have disrupted.
User avatar #109 to #56 - defensive (05/03/2013) [-]
Not natural? Are you high man?
Human are as natural as it gets. We just used our natural advantage(our brain power) to it's fullest extent. Your right when you say that we cannot own materials, but we can reshape them to fit our needs and desires. That's what makes humans so great! We can adapt to almost any problem that we face. We have come to the top of the food chain for a reason, because we are simply the best. You may be correct when you say that humans mess a lot of the environment up, but look where it ends up. Have you ever flown on a plane? Ever driven in a car? Are you not in your house on a computer right now? I'd say that the materials are doing a better job creating such complex and amazing machines than they were sitting in the ground. You don't know the future of human kind or what we will be capable of. If you are so fond of keeping to your version of "natural order", then go back to Africa and start killing animals with your bear hands. The Earth is better off now than it would have been if humans never existed because we have brought such wonderful creations and ideas into this world.

Natural law
It is present in absolutely everything. Every action has a reaction, everything is in balance.

And if you're going to say "Hurr everything comes from earth durr!" Then you're a ******* idiot. No not everything man made comes from nature, everything existed in the earth at one point, but without our interference skyscrapers would never exist.

If there's one single reason. Consider this. Without us the earth would continue with balance, forever. Every animal, every plant would live healthy. All contributing to a worldwide sustainable ecosystem.

Cut the 'balance' **** . What do we have to balance? Nature?
There is no such thing as natural law, you just made it up to try and prove a point. The only natural laws I know are the laws of physics, and they don't say **** about being a hippy. I didn't say that we were pulling full made computers out of the ground you illiterate. I said that the materials have a purpose now that we are using them. Without humans animal life would continue for a few million years and die out, Earth would become inhospitable and that would end the end of that.

"There is no such thing as natural law, you just made it up to try and prove a point" Here's an example of your clever ******* attempts to simply tear down credibility. By saying this you can completely disregard the subject in question and then declare victory like the ******* piece of **** you are.

"and they don't say **** about being a hippy." Here's another little quip, by calling me a hippy (you didn't even spell it right ******** ) you resort to second grade name calling and disregard anything I say, cause after all the words of a "hippy" don't matter.

" Hardly self centered to like the species that I am"
That's the definition of self centered you ******* idiot.

I never said that the accomplishments of humans were insignificant. And if you want to latch onto your species to validate your own insecurities that's ****** dandy. But don't forget that your species also ***** eveyrthing over. In fact your species is the only one that commits genocide, wages wars, causes extinction and pollutes. No others species on earth would have killed one another with an atom bomb. It doesn't ******* happen. An atomb bomb would never come to exist in nature without humans, and that is what makes them unnatural.

Jesus **** . Your stupidity is rubbing off. I can't organize my thoughts and I am growing tired of this ********* . You will never admit your wrong. You will disregard everything I say and declare yourself a victor so I really do not give a **** . I can only leave you with this. These are facts.

Humans are ******* with nature and refusing to fix it. This means that the very thing they rely on, nature, will not be able to sustain them. And eventually they will all die because they ****** with nature. However nature will be able to repair the damage done, and eventually thrive. Humans on the other hand won't.

I don't see how I am trying to validate my insecurities either but if that what you think then whatever. We may be the only species that commits genocide, wages war, causes extinction and pollutes, but we are also the only species that create cures to sicknesses, tries to fix the environment and tries to prevent natural disasters.

Perhaps, but when an idea like this comes in, with such wide support. It's hard to see the brightside.

I know for a fact, that we will not, and cannot continue as we are. And something like this comment, the picture and the words. They encourage humanity to continue it's course without regard.

We need to find a balance, everything needs a balance, and mankind has lost, nay taken that balance. We think ourselves invincible, and everything we do bears no consequence. However you can ignore gravity, yet that doesn't mitigate it's effect. Everything we are doing is building up a reaction, one that will tear down everything we've created. The only way we can escape this is to abandon mindsets like these. We need to recognize that men are not superior, we are not advanced. We are as dependent upon nature as ever. And there is no amount of "forward movement" that will fix this.

Perhaps this talk of "finding a balance" is a bit too broad for some people.

Men are not above nature.

User avatar #135 to #134 - rhetoricalfunny (05/04/2013) [-]
" I don't think that we are hurting the planet nearly as much as some say we are"
This is the one line I take issue with. We are hurting the planet, much of the damage will be irreparable. And so many people don't understand the scale at which we are.
In fact so many people underestimate how much damage we are really doing.

Yes, technologies for fuels are being developed that make them safe, clean and recyclable. But very few are actually utilizing them. Money drives everything, and these ideas though more beneficial to us, don't make money. (In fact some companies end up buying out the rights to technologies that would be beneficial for humans. Cancer treatment, alternative energy, etc. and then they get rid of them for the sake of keeping their profits.)

For me it's not a matter of pessimism or optimism, but one of pessimistic realism.
It's entirely possible for us to attain the balance we so desperately need. But no one wants to do that. And furthermore so many don't even think it is necessary. (As well as those who don't realize how sorely we need it.)

Technically thats true that everything has come from the materials of the universe so its all "natural". But on Earth, you couldn't find the molecule combinations for those aerosol chemicals. They only come from man made factories so in that sense they are not "natural."

The same goes for the new atoms that we have discovered (117, 118)
These are also found no where on Earth except in the labs of scientists that slam atoms together trillions of times to try to make a new atom. I would not call these new atoms natural because as far as we know, they can not be found anywhere in nature and if they are harmful to other life species, you can't defend them by saying they were made from protons, neutrons, and electrons that are from nature.

You live on a spaceship, it's an entirely closed system and relies on a fragile balance of supplies and an ecosystem to keep you alive. somebody thinks it would be cool to destroy half the plant life on it and dump chemicals into the water filtration system, then release harmful chemicals into the air filtration.

Earth is a space ship, people are literally THAT retarded.

Yup, was stupid enough to look it up and post before thinking about what the last line meant. Thanks

Without humans every animal, every plant, and every single thing on earth will live with this thing called a BALANCE No
the earth is most certainly not better of with us.

I thumbed for the pic, not your rant.

Yes, every species pollutes, but none with the effect that mankind has.
Yes, every species gets sick, but we are the only one to create plagues to ravage our own kind.
Yes, our technology is great, the achievements of our history, the monuments our kind has built, the things we have done boggle the mind. These are things to, rightfully, be proud of. Things to, rightfully, celebrate that others of our species have done these things.
But, along with this comes the knowledge of the atrocities men have acted upon one another. No other creature has done the horrible things to each other that we have done to our own kind. Although, with this comes the admission of the bravery of those who stood against the evil men who have done such.

The point being, you are right in saying that we are not an "awkward orphan that was not adopted, but who simply forced it's way into the family.", how ever, to claim that we are not a blight on this planet is naive at best; intentionally misinformed at worst.

We are changing this planet's climate, altering it in such a way that eventually we will destroy entire ecosystems. Yes, life will go on, yes, life will adapt. But, the point is that we have the ability to stop this process, to act as stewards and guardians of our mother planet, rather than as we have; as rude children destroying their own play pen while fighting over toys and food, all the while defecating and urinating over everything.

We need to make a change, we need to step up and take responsibility for the damage our kind is causing to our planet. We are not a parasite on this planet, not naturally, but due to the way we have lived, we have become one. Thankfully, we have the ability to wake up and take responsibility for the damage we have done and stop acting as parasites.

Your reply severely lacks in thumbs. It's a great rebuttal on their argument.

I wish I could have the optimism you possess.
#77 to #74 - tomthehippie (05/03/2013) [-]
Not optimism, realism.

Yes, we are unique in that we have the ability to completely destroy this planet.

America has enough explosives to, not destroy the earth, but make it uninhabitable.

But we also have the technology, the scientific knowledge to be caretakers of this planet. To use our mother planet's resources responsibly, while maintaining quality of life for every man woman and child on this planet.

How ever; are we going to? Honestly, I'm not sure. It is one thing to say we can, you can't argue that we can't stop polluting and take care of our planet! The technology is there to do it! You can argue that we wont; because those in power don't want to.

it's amazing what we have the potential to do, there's no disputing that.

But it's disheartening what we chose to do.
#133 to #132 - tomthehippie (05/03/2013) [-]
Exactly my point. **** , we should already be colonizing the moon! At least starting to build habitations for said colony!

**** , the international space station should be complete by now!

Instead? Instead we have ********* arguing about letting two men marry each other and how elevating the US's healthcare system to the levels the rest of the First World enjoys is evil socialism (ignoring that we live in a Socialist Republic).

There is so much I want to say. Step one, we are also capable of creating whole new ways of using and producing energy that help stop most of this. In fact, much of the world is focusing on how to live in better harmony with nature. Second, It's not necessarily nature that I would worry about when it comes to mankind's survival. I worry about cataclysmic events happening that cause us to loose most of our society. The earth has gone through many mass extinctions, and very little has survived them. We need to start focusing not only on preserving our planet for as long as possible, but on becoming able to travel to and colonize other worlds.

To be fair though, if we set off all of our nukes, we could kill EVERYTHING and make the Earth uninhabitable to any of the kinds of lifeforms that have ever existed on this planet.
