worl peace wouldnt be peacful cause too much of anything isnt good.. it would lead to bordom.. unless there was a way that it didnt but that is not how things work in this world.. you NEED "bad" for" good" to stand out as "good".. youd have to change the fact that it in us... theres a time when it feels good to be stimulated but then a time when "peace" (relief) feels good thats why its called "peace" in the first place is because it stands out as peacful compared to violence.. if there was no "negative" vibes like voiolence "peace" wouldnt make sense there would be no peace itwould just be typical.. both sides its in us.. even if som1's attentions are good.. what if som1 fell in love with a girl he was about to fall in love ((with or whatever.. conflict over things such as people etc,..)

and its not just a "inevitable downfall" then you can say "inevitable up fall" BALANCE HELLOO both sides!!!! ! 1 !

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!. The world will end. That can be said as just damn near a fact. But then again "The inevitable rise of Man" as well, can be said to be damn near fact.

I just skimmed through some of the posts so I may be posting ignorantly but has anyone bothered to take the other side of this arguement. I saw some posts stating that humans inevitablely bounce back from their degradations and thats parallel to the point I'm about to make.

The only basis of comparison we have to say that humans are going to destroy themselves is our own history. We have been fighting ourselves since the beginning of our known existance. No doubt we are violent creatures. For those who believe in evolution, you know there is a reason we are this way. Its a tool to survive. Survival of the fittest and here we are. Despite the fact we have been killing ourselves throughout history we are still alive. Not only alive but more advanced then ever. In the last century the global population has more then doubled and we are able(not perfectly) to support this population. We have colonized the entire globe. We have technology that allows us to not be farming food but rather dedicate our lives to expanding thought. This technology is propelled by leaps and bounds by our wars. Suppose for example an meteor was going to hit Earth 10 years from now. We have today the technology to at the very least make a decent attempt at stopping it. If WW2 had never happened our nucluear technology as well as other techs would be much less advanced, maybe even nonexistant and we would be unable to defend ourselves against a meteor impact.

Dolphins are said to be just as intellegent as us. They have their own tools for survival and they are alive so it must be working out pretty well for them. I would hypothesis however that if they had a more destructive nature and fought each or other species they would adapt to their environment much more rapidly. As it is now I don't think they have a good chance of stopping the forementioned meteor.

Overall, I'm not saying its impossible to destroy ourselves. Species die every day because of the tools they have. It could happen, but I don't see any overwhelming evidence to suggest its going to.

By the way guys. If the world does end let's get together and set up a hippy camp. We'll have load's of fun while everyone else is getting fried. (lol)

In responce to the idea that the human species may destroy itself by means of either resourse depleation or nuclear war, perhaps the hominid is not meant to survive. It is more likely than not that we are not the pinnacle of organic evolution, but yet another link in the developmental chain. To expand upon this point, look at the dinosaurs, the planets first evolutionary attempt to create a singular dominant species. While they were sufficiently physically equipped to handle the threat of other species, they were not gifted the cognative capacity to adequately deal with a large scale natural disaster(metor, giant volcanic eruption,etc). We, on the other hand, have achieved our dominance through exactly opposite means, though in truth we are no less one dimensional. We are the opposite end of the spectrum. Perhaps a more harmonious balance between cognative capacity and physical prowress must be established by a species before a true planetary dominance can be attained. Or maybe i should do some research before i start expousing grand sweeping evolutionary theories?
