I think we re destined to destroy ourselves because as humanity advances it comes at cost an just because we are excited of the new advances we tend to ignore the consequences

I don't believe we're destined to destroy ourselves, however, the millennials might destroy themselves.
I'm Gneration X. Sure we flipped the bird to just about everything. Mainly we flipped the bird to divisions, sects, and social classes of any sort.
But millennials seem hell bent on being the most racist, divisive, and bigoted generation of all time.
They have no inclination towards empathy or solidarity.
They view life as a genie in a bottle. They rub it and make demands.
Anything that challenges their perspectives are shunned, maligned, and ridiculed.
They actually F***ing have the unnerving audacity to consider themselves enlightened
when they impose their pity on those they deem less advanced than themselves.
They vandalize the past, but replace it with nothing.
Anything other than instant gratification is considered a gratuitous hindrance.
My generation failed you.We took the hippy notions our parents gave us and kept it to ourselves. We figured we'd give you the freedom to learn on your own and everything would fall into place. The result: a caveman mentality with all the niceties of modernity.
"New advances" will not destroy us, but an age of social barbarism will.

SO in a long an complicated way you do agree with me because that barbarisms will be caused by us humans not alien from mars an I m figuratively speaking incase you dnt understand they will not be any outside influence it will be us humans an I m generalizing because they are always going to be those who re innocent but their innocence wont save them from the destruction of what u call barbarisms

I change my mind. Aliens from Mars will destroy us.
They are super-duper pissed off, and I mean pissed!
I can't stress enough how pissed off they are.
Just Google the face of Mars. Look at it.
It looks extremely pissed off to me.
They are capital "P" pissed, pissed, pissed!
Why are they so pissed? Good question.
They're pissed off because our rover has over stayed its welcome.
There is a mighty big government cover-up about this, but
I'm here to blow the lid off this thing!!!!!!!!!
According to Dr. Jethro Halfwit, they are so pissed off that they literally tremble with rage.
A rage without remedy. Oh my god!!! That is awfully pissed.

Dr. Jethro Halfwit seems pretty credible to me, but let's assume he's mistaken.
Maybe he'll be really pissed off when his theory is proven false.
I mean enormously pissed off.
So pissed off he'll use his intellect to destroy us all.
He'll put banana peels every where when no ones looking,
And slip, bang, we're all dead.
Deader than a doornail! Dead, dead, dead!!!
