The difference between weather and climate...

The world would be more peaceful without humans on it, the major proponent of anthropogenic mass extinction. I mean the universe is indiscriminate, it is asymmetric. There is a giant fusion nuclear reactor in space and molten nickel beneath my feet, tell me how a unbiased eye peeking into this universe would not find that horrifying. It will never be peaceful when there are groups of people that find peace off of someone's poison.

Over how great a time period? Are we talking? It's more peaceful than during the mid and early 20th century but wars probably happen less and on a small scale than during some of the Palaeolithic Age.

@Gareth_BM Just as time goes by. Wars definitely happen less nowadays but there are still wars.

Depends on what you call "peaceful." I mean, things seem to have gotten less peaceful because, before, the peace was held with strict authoritarianism and intimidation.

At least watch the first 30sec of my link. It just goes to show.

@reece I did and then, I realized that the speaker in that video is a stupid, retarded sexist who has no respect for men or women! He's a sexist sh*thead and he doesn't deserve my mercy or my grace!
