I'm not suicidal or anything, but if you think about it, if the human race was wiped out, it'd be better for the planet. Isn't the human race, the only species where if it was taken off the Earth, everything would flourish? I mean we learn about food webs and stuff and how everything is important in it, but humans are like, they're like a pair of scissors cutting up the web.

Armageddon has to happen sometime. Maybe its now.

Well I think its something important to think about, and I want people to see it, so I think we should.

Perhaps we can get rid of some other threads? We have a LOT.

Talking about the humans' evil nature... While driving a car in GTA4, i was listening to one of the radio programs it had... Then i went across a really interesting radio program.
The radio animator was discussing the hunger issue with a young girl, she was pretending that she had the perfect solution to get rid of starvation...
"Instead of trying to reduce the number of hungry people... all we have to do, is reduce the number of people, simple. Just kill the hungry people." Something like that.
Now i know GTA4 is a game, but that game was made by humans... Now if we think about it, human logic can definitely reach that kind of conclusion.
But yeah, i'm one of the people who think that the polar shift will definitely happen in 2012, and with all the natural catastrophes that will come with it, the human race will sure be cleansed o-o

Reducing population would work, but for one, killing all hungry people would be horrible. Also, it wouldn't solve much. After a while, the population would go up to the same level again. We need to start changing our habits instead of always looking for an easy way out in my opinion.

Which is my point exactly. People are well aware of the problems they're causing, but they're not exercing the right solutions. I mean, for a kid to say it's better to just kill hungry people to erase starvation is just outrageous... It's very unlikely to see humanity doing something to stop hurting Earth without suffering some of catastrophe as a warning.

Ahh I see.

The sad thing is, lots of people are still in denial, there's irrefutable proof of Global Warming, yet they still refuse to believe it. Yeah, I know what you mean. Unfortunately, I think by the time people realize that something has to be done, it might be too late. I read somewhere that at this rate, in 40 years, all life in the ocean will be gone.

There's a whole site dedicated to saving the oceans.

http://www.oceana.org/2048/home/

Oh and if you didn't know about it already, there's this site called FreeRice where you can answer Vocab questions (there are more subjects now I think) and for every question you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice to hungry people.

Yeah I know what you mean... I hate people who play on the sympathies of others.

The site is sponsored by the United Nations though, so it must be legit.

Alright, well at least i won't feel bad for all the clicks i did there, they're surely helping someone out of their misery.

It's kind of frustrating to see how inactive this thread is... considering how people will get active once the true apocalypse falls upon them x ,x.

Tell me about it, I doubt even then it will make much of a difference. I remember I was surfing the net once and I stumbled on a forum, I don't remember what site it was on, it asked whether people cared about all the crap going on in the world, like global warming, world hunger, etc.

I was shocked to see that the most common response was that people really didn't care much. For some, it was because they felt like there was no hope, but a lot of people just didn't care. As long as they could watch their anime and read their manga, they're happy.

It disgusts me.

I kinda envy careless people like that xDD... They just live for the sake of living, no troubles at all. But well, i also blame the educational system which is, for most of it, unefficient...

Children and teenagers barely have any motivation at all during classes, the biggest problem of today's schooling is that they (Educational administration) don't bear in mind that a teacher's job is no longer to transmit knowledge. Knowledge can be acquired anywhere and almost free of charge. A modern teacher's job is to transmit knowledge in the best, most suitable way possible. It's not about shoving lessons down students troaths like in the middle age, that doesn't show results anymore...

If the teachers and parents keep being so lazy and half assed in their educations, there is no way out of this tragedy...

Well I don't envy them, because its easy to not care, just put it out of your mind and it won't matter to you. Meh I'm sure they have troubles, they just consider them more important than the troubles of someone whose troubles are a lot worse than theirs.

That's very true, a lot of my learning comes from going on the internet, Wikipedia, reading books, watching shows, etc. I pick up a lot of knowledge from those things.

Yeah that's so true, its not the teachers fault though. Its the system. We here at least, are constantly tested, its just test after test after test, teachers struggle to teach in a way that's good while trying to go through all the material. I've heard teachers express this. They would like to teach the way things should be taught, in a way that is interesting to the students, and in a way where we'll actually be able to retain the information. But the demands of the state/country and all the testing hinders that. They just don't have the time to teach the way they would like to.
