Well, conversely, from some points of view, the human race is a cancer to
the earth. Whatshername, who sat up in that tree for all those months is
a good example. She sat up there and got a lot of attention, but in the
end, she came down. And so did the tree. The thought process is a dream
that emerged from a "realization" that things are fucked up and are only
going to get worse. I'll betcha a beer that I can find at least 10 things
that humans have done to screw up their own habitat to your examples of us
doing something good for it. We're shitting where we sleep, which is
something all the rest of the animals know instinctively not to do. I'm
glad that you have a more positive view of the human race and its
capability to adapt to its ever-decreasing supply of o2, and its
ever-increasing supplies of toxins that we create, but I cannot share that
with you.

Again, you misinterpret what I said. The thought of a humanless planet
earth being beautiful is not the same as the thought that everything is so
fucked up that suicide is the only answer.

How would you know how phoney a 'kiss kiss sisterhood crowd' is? (: If
you did, by some chance, get invited to such a gathering, you'd quickly
realize that your foot is deeply implanted in your mouth, because there
are no such power trips involved (at least not in the circles I swim in).

Another misinterpretation. What I said equates to the phrase: It ain't
over till it's over. Now how does one get a taste of that? (:

But my point with the post was really this: Someone mentioned signs of
the end times or whatever. What I was trying to do was ask the question:
Does believing that there will be an 'end' cause it to happen? What if
there were no "signs" or prophecies predicting the end? Some folks, like
yourself <?> may not believe that such a thing will happen, but the
numbers are against you. Will the belief that this will happen propel it
