Also, the planet will die eventually...it will be swallowed up by the sun.

Humans like being alive

Yes that’s true. We like ourselves. But we’re high maintenance materially that’s all.

Our brain got too big perhaps..beside that, the human is just an experience of consciousness that’s all...

I’m just reporting my surround Henry. Humans are huge mess and waste makers, they are a drain on the delicate biosphere.

I’m not a materialistic person personally...but I’ve been born into world of not my making and design, same goes for all new borns coming in.

hey, you don't wanna off yourself: I get it

all I'm sayin' is: in light of your distaste for humanity, and with you bein' a human being, your desire to stay alive is surprisin'

if man is vermin and should not be then you, vermin, should not be

so: why are you?

Our environment is going downhill. People are angry about it, they have a right to be. Especially the young who could conceivably witness the worst of it. Meanwhile "Orange Man" is trying to reintroduce coal because he thinks science is fake. It's like putting your foot on the accelerator when you're headed for a cliff with your kids in the back seat.

no, gary, it ain't...you've been hoodwinked

people are angry about nuthin'...they've been hoodwinked

don't like coal? support atomics

and: if climate change worries you: plant trees; leave people alone

Dontaskme wrote: Thu Sep 17, 2020 5:40 pm Evidence shows that a sixth mass extinction is occurring now. Unlike previous mass extinctions, the sixth extinction is due to human actions. Some scientists consider the sixth extinction to have begun with early hominids during the Pleistocene.

The other 5 extinctions are...
Ordovician-silurian Extinction: 440 million years ago.
Devonian Extinction: 365 million years ago.
Permian-triassic Extinction: 250 million years ago.
Triassic-jurassic Extinction: 210 million years ago.
Cretaceous-tertiary Extinction: 65 Million Years Ago.


Earth's 6th mass extinction event under way, scientists warn. Researchers talk of 'biological annihilation' due to human activity.

Humans are an anti-natural, omnicidal, unsustainable species. We have triggered abrupt, extreme, lethal and irreversible climate collapse. This will result in biological annihilation, including human extinction, before 2035, most likely. There is nothing to be done, except to accept our fate. Our species is a parasitic plague. We have killed our host. Permafrost and Methane leaking into the atmosphere. Mother nature is bleeding out.

We can predict the future by observing the present by remembering the past.

Great stuff, I love the dire way in which it was delivered, that ought to get the attention of the idiots of the forum.

You get my vote, go get um, I'll definitely support you! ;-)

Is that what it's all about? Climate scientists are lying to dupe us all into communism? furthermore, if socialism were able to save humanity from self-destruction where capitalism cannot wouldn't that make socialism worth pursuing? Or is it better that humanity destroys itself rather than sacrifice some liberty (albeit mostly the liberty of wealthy corporations)? If it came down to either/or, which is more important, sacrificing some liberty or life itself? Question to you, Impenitent. :?:

Great job GC, I concur with your sound logic. And that's why we find ourselves in the position we do, the inability to look at ourselves and self regulate, as they said in the USN, "to tighten our belts," as it was time to do our job, that R&R (Rest and Relaxation) was over. We all need to know when the parties over, and it's time to do what we should do, if for no one else, for our "children’s, children’s, children." I mean what kind of parents/grandparents/etc are we anyway?

I’m talking about the play of consciousness...go figure, no wait don’t bother, you probably won’t understand that there is no human to kill itself, but no worries,it’s your belief,not mine.

Consciousness is the only knowing there is, and this knowing is observing and reporting what it observes, which is manifested as knowledge, which once again as I’ve said multiple times, informs the illusory nature of existence, in that there is only what is appearing within consciousness itself, aka nothing being everything.

As consciousness we can predict the future by observing the present by remembering the past.

As for your apparent adverse hysteria in what’s being discussed here, I’m simply not interested in that. I like to discuss what’s really happening, not what I think, desire, want or wish to be happening.
