I'm doing a little personal project, and as a starting point I am listing all the problems that humanity has. So far I've got:

Religion & ignorance
Environmental carelessness
Big business
Inefficient government systems
Improper handling and distribution of wealth
Media
Crime
War
Unfair distribution of natural resources
Disappearing human rights

I know there must be more to add. Fire away.

Honestly, you know what's wrong?
Humans. We're a disease, a plague, a leech to this planet.

If flies were extinct, life on this planet as we know it would die.
If humans died... Well, the earth would heal itself and be better than ever.

A bit bleak don't you think? Do you really think we're beyond redemption?
As for religion... yes it really is poison for the most part, sorta like a social heroin.

(Note: I'm a hypocrit, I've had my moments of species self-hatred as well.)

the biggest problem is the lack of pie. If everyone was eating pie, there would be no war.

Opium for the masses, as they say

But I guess some people just need their fix to get through the day.

No it really isn't. As I said before, it's the tolerance that's the problem. If everyone just accepted other people believe different things, there'd be no problem. Don't try and act all "I'm above religion", because trust me, you're not.

Oh, I love humans, I'm a narcissist actually.

But I'm a realist with a sharp tongue



If you were really a narcissist, you wouldn't care whether or not humans are ruining everything.

The problem with religion is that it's a flawed concept, religions try to give all the anwers to life, which besides impossible makes them absolutist. An absolutist view can never be moderate or tolerant for long.

You had just as hard of a time swallowing my theory on humans and their relation to the planet.

Add hypocrisy to that list plz

I guess I'm a self-contradicting silly person then.

Every concept is flawed at some stage. And maybe one of the religions does give the answers to life. Who the hell knows? And it's not only religion that's absolutist. Political parties can become absolutist, hell, even our own opinions and perceptions can be absolutist in nature, so it isn't religion that's the problem, as opposed to how we treat others with different views. Why can't people get that through their thick skulls?

For what? If you want to wipe out all those human characteristics, you can start by offing yourself.

At least half the people that complain about how bad the world is are contributing to humanity's self-destruction just as well.

Cause they're thick

Let's agree to disagree on religion, you seem like a decent dude.

I know it's been pointed out how you've contradicted yourself, but do you realize that you have just admitted to CONTRIBUTING to the problem you are so desperate to cleanse?

You guys are whackos.

If you wanna start solving the problem, give away your computer, money, internet, house, and move out into an isolated place and live as a hermit or some ****.

Live like an animal.
