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 ✌️
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.
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.
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.
The real issue is not are humans a disease, Are our actions destroying the earth? In which case i would say yes, That we are destroying the earth and that those who do will be destroyed. However, Sin is inherent nature in all of us, But we can find mercy and a new to live that does no harm to the earth. Think about it, Why are there wars? Greed? Power? Lust? Simply to satisfy 1 person or a group of peoples desire. Those align with sin. But thats just 1 example.
Just since 2016 2/3 of Australia’s reefs have been “bleached”. They are dead. In the last ten years, The ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. This is not a natural cycle of the Earth’s climate change. Humans are killing and raping the planet into oblivion. People need to stop procreating, Supporting companies that produce excess waste, Allow alternatives for fossil fuel be used, Deny the cattle industry, And adopt Native American ideals. Since none of that will happen as long as white men run the show, I bid the human race farewell, It hasn’t been fun, And you deserve whatever happens to your egocentric greeedy corrupt ass.
The human race is just like the cancer virus, We spread so fast and destroy everything in our path.
We must be eradicated, For this world to survive.
I am the cure and i would end the human race very soon, The streets will burn and once the flames are gone, Nature will reclaim this planet from us
We are fucking the world up bad, We are destroying it and we won't stop in till were all dead. We are the cancer on the world. Diseases like the black plague or measles are like the planets immune response while we are the sickness. We are the disease that is killing the world.
Ever looked at satellite programs like google earth? If you do you'll see the true extent of humanity's spread across the earth. Just about 200 years ago, The American West was vastly unexplored by 'civilized' people. Now, There are few places in the west that haven't been destroyed by human expansion.
Okay, I'll just get to the point. Humanity has been more taxing on the Earth's resources and on other species than any other inhabitant of the planet. We consume mercilessly and take whatever we think is ours. Our existence has been a mere blip in the history of the earth, But I'm certain that our intelligence as a species has led to a form of entitlement that is quite literally destroying our only home.
At this point, It seems that animals are running out of places to live. That may sound ridiculous, But when you look at a satellite image of an entire state and realize how much of the verdant green that used to cover the continent has been covered by towns and fields, It becomes painfully obvious. The national parks of this country are the only true remaining wilderness, As, Like an infection, We've spread to cover every acre of space that we possibly can.
Because of our entitlement to the luxuries that a 'modern life' has to offer, We've systematically destroyed species, Resources, And environments. Because we feel like we're owed a nice home and a plot of land, We've spread to cover much of the wilderness that thousands of other species, Which are equally important to us, Have inhabited for millions of years.
Okay that's my rant, Hope it made you think.
It beggars belief that we believe ourselves so important in this world that we consider everything in it to belong to us, Rather than us to belong to it. We started life on this magnificent planet in a respectful way, As many primitive tribes still do, Then modern society came along with its toxic, Corrupt, Abusive, Selfish and depraved 'norms'. Nobody really gives a toss, Not even the seemingly shiny, Happy, Loving families, Just as long as they can get on with their 'shop and coffee bar' days. It sickens me. We expect, Expect, Expect. Every now and again we'll watch tv about some disaster and mumble a few words, 'poor things', 'oh no', 'that's awful', Maybe send a couple of quid to ease our consciences, But then we'll go in the kitchen, Get a bag of crisps and turn over to watch some old rubbish sitcom and forget all about it. We are parasites to this earth, And simply don't deserve it's support. The ultimate arrogance is that we are now exploring other planets to use and abuse, When we can't even look after this one! I take comfort in the thought that there will come a time, And it won't be so distant, That there will no longer be resources enough to sustain us and we will become extinct.
WE WERE PUT ON THIS EARTH FOR A REASON, I understand why people put yes but if GOD did NOT want us to be on earth he would NOT let us be here right now whilst i am sat on my bed typing this, I am not going to put a big long massive speech but earth is beautiful with or without humans.
There are many reasons why it is wrong, innacurate, and downright unhealthy to view humanity as a disease. Three important reasons include the following; viewing humanity as a disease devalues the self and others justifying harming oneself and others, this outlook is prone to harbor a sense of guilt which leads to fear or overly passionate activism, and finally, humanity does not fit the criteria for the definintion of disease, "A disorder of STRUCTURE in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that effects a specific location and is not and is not a result of PHYSICAL INJURY." In other words 'global warming' or 'deforestation' is a 'disease' but humanity itself is not! That is like saying "Bacteria is a disease" which is completely untrue; we need many types of bacteria to survive, and most strains are harmless. The only way to define humanity as a disease is to do mental backflips to define the earth in such a way that humanity can appear to be a disease. This equivocation is an example of how a metaphor can easily be taken too far.
TLDR You cant do anything to make the world a better place by looking at yourself and others as a disease. We are part of this earth and we may be diseased, but we are a patient. Love one another. Help others. This negative outlook is damaging and nihilistic in the worst way.
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.
