All it takes is education. Intelligence is what sets the human race apart from all other living things. We have the ability to think, plan, and carry out actions that benefit us. Animals on the reef can't "think" and save themselves. We have put a whole lot of species in grave danger and those species can't do anything about it. We got them into this mess, and it's gonna take us to get them out. If the public was educated we wouldn't have this problem. People would realize the problem and correct it. Unfortunately, 90% of Americans are ignorant on very basic principles such as pollution, harvesting of animals, etc. People don't think for the future, they do what benefits them at that point in time

Wow great thread. Now my 2 cents We are repeating history we came from Mars, were we did the same thing screwed the planet over used it up without regard for the next gen
Look at the signs...... Space men it was us! (Nature waste nothing yet we use only 10% of our brain? make sense?) We destroyed one planet and we now destroy another. The history is written we just just chose to ignore it (or hide it ) in order to make a buck.
We have almost come full circle when we finely kill this planet the wise will go to yet another and start over but they will leave the high tec crap behind just like before. Because if we can rape our world we will.
Better to start in the Stone age it will take thousands of years to get were we are now, and maby just maby we'll learn this time. before it's to late..........

i'm still going to, but not without some measure of guilt.

i don't think education is going to help at this point. i'm sure you all know of the giant garbage heap in the ocean...

I love the Martian theory (as if we inhabited Mars prior to coming to earth) but I tend to subscribe that non-human life inhabited and migrated from Mars (or Venus). If humankind made the voyage, I would think we would be far more advanced.

What I find most interesting though is how many global warming debates seem to neglect the fact that it is inevitable. The Sun is constantly expanding outward from its core and in to our great solar system. Our pollution and planetary neglect may well indeed worsen the situation and even possibly speed up the process, but therein lies "our" debate.

Either way, the Sun will eventually engulf all of the planets before collapsing unto itself and creating one of the most beautiful things in existence, the super nova!

Based on that logic, it almost seems more likely that life began on Mercury as our Sun was very young and the distance ratio created an ideal scenario for life. Perhaps life then advanced to Venus as both parasitic and symbiotic organisms would certainly struggle to survive. Venus to Earth, Earth to Mars, and beyond!

And I agree, great thread!

I believe the theory is that there was intelligent life on mars like ourselves that slowly destroyed the planet as we r today and eventually there was a mass extinction that only bacteria survived. Then a large meteor or asteroid hit and sent a colony of bacteria that eventually landed on earth that evolved into life on earth. Either way u make a very good point

i don't think there was ever any life on any other planets in our solar system. the idea sounds as fantastic as a god who loves all creatures, but designs them to eat each other alive.

Idk. It seems pretty plausible. Especially considering the first bacteria on earth were anaerobic and could possibly have survived in space. But to be honest until its proven fact its all a matter of opinion.

Life feeds on life.

I do often wonder about the logic behind something that could create such a complex system and not be able to turn down the pain and suffering, at least a little bit.
