As soon as the human brain developed reason and critical thinking, we rose to the top of the food chain and invented agriculture. This toppled the equilibrium that the planet had existed in for millions of years. People began living longer and we could support more people for longer. We began to expand and exploit more and more of the earths resources. There are seven BILLION people on earth now. All of them want to be fed. The only way to do that? Take even more from mother nature, use machines that poison the air, ground ,and water to continue our way of life. There may still be hope of turning it around and taking steps to limit our influence and to find balance again, but right now, Gaea is dying.
Earth must be beautiful without us, imagine all animals and plants everywhere, no contamination or wars or destruction just peace and nature. We are ruining earth will all of our pollution and trash. That's why I think that people are a disease to earth. I don't care if you don't agree that's my opinion byeeeee ✌️
Human for thousands of years have mined exploded and polluted the earth. We have polluted the oceans with our garbage and our waste. We have killed animals to extinction that shouldent of we pollute our air with the cars we drive we set of nuclear bombs that kill land for hundreds of years.
If you ask a biologist or a Darwinist, he'll tell you that every characteristic given to any animal, plant, or some other life form are given with a purpose. Human are equipped with extremely high intelligence. An intelligence that are tearing down the Earth, right now as I'm writing this. The human-race is behind many animal extinctions, destruction of forests and I do not believe that this is what Earth wants. Therefore my theory is that we are a somewhat failed construction.
We, as the human race are terrible, we go around taking and taking everything handed to us and never stopping to give back to the world or give it a break, i can't wait till we have been wiped out and wish there was some sort of way to see the results.
Tribes in mountains, deserts and rainforests are doing fine, yeah they might not have perfect things like water and food all the time but that's the westernised worlds fault for corrupting everything money, greed and power, lets just go back to catching your own food, building your own house and obviously that means strongest survives whilst the can recover, end me.
On a finite planet, nothing physical can grow indefinitely. The more of us there are, the fewer resources there are for each of us and for members of other species with which we share the planet. Human numbers have grown fourfold in the last century, from 1.65 to seven billion. They are projected to grow by a further four billion by the end of the century, driven by increasing longevity, a continuing high birth rate in some countries and population momentum, i.e. a historically high number of people of fertile age. Population growth rates worldwide are declining, but absolute numbers are still rising at one and a half million every week. Growth is also variable; populations are declining in some countries while continuing to grow rapidly in others. Since life appeared on earth, there have been several mass extinctions in which many of the earth’s species were wiped out because of climate change, volcanic activity, the impact of an asteroid or reasons we have not yet discovered. The plants and animals which currently live on Earth have continued to evolve over the 65 million years since the last mass extinction. But many scientists consider the huge reduction in biodiversity since the emergence of humans is now on the scale of another mass extinction. This is known as the Holocene or Anthropocene extinction.
Lick ticks on a dog. Flesh eating bacteria. Deep bore termites. Cant change what we are. Accept it. Sky is blue, water is wet, humans are a disease, we consume till victims death...There is no future, thats not what diseases care about. Our life takes life, we are universally feared.
With no regard to our environment we overpopulate, consume or poison our resources and then once their used up move to another area, noise pollution, air pollution, oceans getting warmer , plankton will go first then the food chain will be destroyed and we will starve ourselves to extinction. People , companies, share holders are never satisfied with profits always wanting more year after year, never thinking how their profits affect the earth. What would our planet look like without humans? A paradise with all creatures living in balance. We need to wake up and change our ways or we will become extinct.
We take more than we give, with the over population and are slowly destroying the planets wildlife and nature.
We should let more people die, and stop saving lifes that aren't meant to be saved, how ever horrible it sounds. We should find and use the thousands of other ways to protect this planet and our lives.
If you notice , for centuries, humans don't live "natural". We tend to destroy nature with a big smile on our face. We waste natural resources like petroleum on nonsense as where we can have a better alternative e.g. Cars running on water instead of gas. We also use a shitload of electricity and that sure produce toxic waste . I'm 20 from a rough urban area and I could see what the worlds coming to 😔
There is no notion of something being "proper" without the assignment of a goal. There is no notion of a "goal" without consciousness, awareness, and the possibility of awareness actively influencing behavior. The mere presence of negative feedbacks in a system, and the inevitable equilibrium that results, cannot be said to be a goal. Therefore, deviation from equilibrium cannot be said to be improper in and of itself.
Unless you are willing to accept the idea that the earth is an aware meta-organism, and has the ability to choose her actions, there can be no notion of "disease" that applies.
Think of what a virus/disease does. Slowly transforms it’s host. Destroying it physical form and changing it’s environment to one that suits it and allows it to grow. It feeds on the resources in our bodies to reproduce, attempting to ensure its survival. We are increasingly changing the environment we live in and devouring it's resources. Clearing rainforests, woodlands, pastures and all kinds of landscapes to develop and multiply into, spreading out to further inflict our host. Humans try to overcome our invaders by attacking with vaccines, antibiotics, and other medicines as the earth does the same with natural disasters of all kinds. It wipes out what it can to hopefully try to contain or eliminate the threat and it’s ravages. Are we terminal? Incurable? Like a cancer that takes so many humans? Debatable. But are we not just a microcosm of the universe itself. Galaxies invade and eat other galaxies, stars explode from inner turmoil, our sun grows and will one day consume Earth. The Earth itself quakes and erupts, spilling ash and magma onto the earth and gasses into the atmosphere. Lightning ignites forests. It's all just the chaos of the universe.

I do not believe humans are a disease to Earth. Humans have undoubtedly been hard on the planet, however, I believe ecology will correct any damages over time. This does not indicate that we may be entirely safe from the effects that we caused, however, I do believe the Earth holds the potential to heal itself over time.
Though the deleterious effects of man can be clearly seen, I think that to assume man is a disease by the implication of the question is to render man's existence as an accident, which doesn't follow any line of logic as to our arriving at the present circumstance of the world in it's natural order.
