Why is it that all the godless environmentalist wackjobs, who I presume would believe in evolution, what with it kinda being the only working theory, completely ignore the circumstances of their own existence?
This planet isn't a garden, it's a snow globe. Now I happen to like the fact that it's one third iced over during winter and too cold to live in comfortably in many areas, with vastly suboptimal weather for life, I still wear shorts when it's cold enough to freeze your spit before it hits the ground. Some time in the next few thousand years, if history can be anything resembling a guide, this planet will turn back into an ice cube, with glaciers working their way down to kansas. The several billion people and accompanying wildlife will be slaughtered wholesale in the fight for the remaining lands. Since it's currently cooling despite higher than normal solar activity, it may be time to start shitting yourselves right now. If we could actually warm this planet up to a level where it doesn't spend 80% of the time looking like a Christmas decoration, it would be the best thing to ever happen to humanity. Global warming alarmists bring me great amusement.
Then there's all the crazy conservationists. If we happen to kill off a few species, why is it a problem?
Evolution is a process of elimination.
We've got some owl variant that only lives between such and such, obviously this owl sucks. If it didn't, it would range over a wider territory. If anything, it should be our duty to nature to weed it out for good so it can stop wasting space. Every time we save a fish that only lives in one river, or a bug that only lives in one valley, we're trying to prevent what is supposedly the natural course of life on earth.
I have no problem with not hunting whale X to extinction. Regardless of my views on hunting something that might be smarter than me, it's stupid to exterminate a viable, valuable resource. Especially in the wasteful manner that commercial whalers practice. Ending civilization over a bait fish that only lives in one river? That's just fucked in the head.
