I'm not asking you to agree with my bizarre opinion, since it literally contradicts human nature and the purpose of all of mankind's current achievements in the world...

However, I hate childbirth. I hate the idea, and it's wrong to me... it's wrong to make more people. The more humans we make, the worse life is. Humans are the cruelest creatures in the world and I think we evolved in reverse. We should evolve back into monkeys... I mean apes... whatever...
I wish I was a mad scientist... cause then I'd invent a radioactive field that would neutralize all the sperm on the planet... Every man will shoot blanks from then on...
Then... Man would realize the futility of everything and all war would cease.
And finally, after 100 or so years, we'd all be gone and there'd be peace on earth... We'd hope the next advanced species would do the same....
Plus, baby's are just so annoying... always crying and shit. Humanity would save the world from itself.

Of course the question is simple... If mankind truly is a plague upon the earth, and upon each other, then wouldn't it benefit everyone, even ourselves, if we didn't exist.

Just make it where people like you can't reproduce.

To exist means we can experience pain, so essentially living is painful. But death is the unknown so we can't just throw all life to it.

Child birth isn't necessarily the issue, but rather educating kids to have good critical thinking skills so that when problems arise they can solve them. Currently videogames do a better job at this than the education system ...

But to answer your question: nah. Making us revert back to an animal state where we aren't as sentient and don't realize how contextually bad human nature is would be comforting due to blissful ignorance but it doesn't solve the problem. The problem is humans being stupid. Only way to solve that is by education.

Mankind is terrible, all those poor animals that the humans kill for profit and food .-.. The human race should go extinct so the animals can live in peace.

I agree with the part where humans are cruel... But humans can be taught what is "moral" and "good" and become useful in society. It's the tainted majority who manage to take up office in the higher order. And that's where we get the wonderful wars that have been happening....

So you can't really say it's "all" humans.

Not everyone takes part in it.

Those who do .... They do it for various reasons....

Don't worry... I also wish I wasn't human... I'd rather be a basil leaf.

So don't forget to add the plants as well "Why can't we revert to cucumber branches instead?"

Animals are horrible things too. They eat each other.

What do we owe Earth? Nothing. We simply live here. Of course it's better that we maintain it, but reserving our need to breed isn't going to please Earth at all.

Your statement is as ridiculous as killing your dog because it took a shit on your couch.

Interesting point of view. However, the right and/or ability to reproduce is a personal decision people engage in. I agree there are parents out there who shouldn't be, but by the same token, there are people out there who want to be parents and can't, for any number of reasons - accident, medical, disability, genetics. So a certain percentage of the population already fits your criteria.

Not to be mean in any way, and I'll probably catch flack for this, but sometimes I wish people had to pass a test in order to have children. The things I've seen people do, and news articles bear this out, prove that some people really are better off not having kids. Granted, there are a lot of good parents out there, but there's a lot of bad ones, too. Since children learn the most in their early years, their parents go a long way to shaping who they become.

But it's not just for the earth, it's for each other...
Who do humans harm more than the earth and the animals? Each other... Our existence has brought suffering upon ourselves...
And I don't care what any transhumanist proggressive says...

Mankind shall always be a species defined by war, torture, abuse, oppression, and dictatorship... We go though monarchies that oppress us, to anarchy, where we oppress each other, to stable democratic governments, which won't last forever... Eventually all of our governments will either turn against each other or on their own people.

If we ceased to exist, we'd be ending all of our own suffering and agony... And it's the only possible way

Even with education, there'll still be terrorism, war, and sadism within the world..

Would a destroyed world be so bad? Let's say all humans, and animals were sterilized or killed in a nucleor explosion or something... The plants would die too, since there'd be no carbon dioxide for the plants, and animals would be unable to carry on... only insects capable of surviving radiation would survive, but no carbon dioxide for the plants, so eventually, everything would die.
In fact, maybe that would improve the earth... it'd be quiet. No war, no animals, just roaring waves and sunsets upon a barren, peaceful dirt landscapr.

They say nucleor weapons deter peace... but when you think about it, the weapons are so powerful they prevent war... and if the entire world did get into a nucleor war, then we'd have world peace instantly. Earth would join other peaceful planets like Venus, Mercury, or Saturn? Mars, I'm not sure, they might have life there. And sadly Pluto's not a planet anymore.

Maybe earth is actually the most backwords planet in the solar system.

No but seriously you're not seriously suggesting we stop populating. We'd die off as a race. It seems you want that, and I gotta say if that is the case get psychiatric help.

Yup, like I said existence is painful. Nothing getting around it. But death, again an unknown so I would rather stay in something tangible, or making us even more stupid by de-evolving us into monkeys doesn't solve the problem either.

Is extinction really that bad... in fact, it might be the ultimate evolved form. Like the dinosaurs, they've evolved way more than us.. they've transcended nature... rather than calling them "Extinct" think of them as liberated. They've been liberated from natural selection, the food change, the circle of life entirely.
How? By becoming extinct. The dinosaurs are finally free from the endless, pointless, nihilistic existence they had. They did what? Roam around, eat, sleep, fuck, repeat....
Why continue such a pointless existence? What benefit does repopulating do? It means there are more of your kind, but when you're dead, is it gonna matter that you continued the species?

I mean how does reproducing improve the lives of the particular individual creature? The only reason they do it is because of the bondage of instinct. It's like fate in a way, they're given a preset desire to reproduce through evolution... Even though reproducing in no way improves their lives, an aspect of their brain manipulates their desires.

Right now, we're nothing more than hamsters running in the same wheel for all eternity, extinction is the only hope each species has for rest and liberation

You got a point.... de-evolving wouldn't bennefit us, mass extinction would. I mean, is it really so bad to not exist anymore? I mean, it's only instinct and nature that makes people wanna reproduce. All of it's just a manipulation of the brain...

We need to get on with the species, so our brains form to care for children. The only reason sex is pleasurable is to make us wanna do it... of course sex isn't a problem anymore since condoms exist. We end up continuing the cruel cycle of nature

Plus, isn't it kind of selfish to have kids? They may be born with horrific disfigurements, or be kidnapped and raped or something... There's just so many uncertainties in life. And there's no guarantee one will enjoy life.
To give birth is just to force the burden of life upon another... If you can't communicate with your unborn child, then you're bringing them into the world, with a burdon forced on them, forcing them to exist, and forcing them against their will to continue the circle of life
