    No you cannot. You said “nothing but” x, y and z. This is clearly rubbish unless your perspective is that all forces of nature are purely destructive … which would make the term ‘destructive’ pretty redundant if the only thing there is is ‘destruction’.

    Do not make false claims and expect people to just accept them blindly.

    Mankind is in its adolescence (we still haven't outgrown our imaginary friends - gods); mistakes are part and parcel of growing up. We treat juveniles differently from adults - no matter how heinous the offense, the penalty is usually less severe than for mature folk. I suggest we take this fact into account before we make a decision on annihilating the human race for perceived crimes against nature. We're a long way from species maturity - only 2.5 million years. In all probability we're the youngest species on the planet! Kids!

    Beneath the denials, the hypocrisy, the false bravado...

    Where,

    each and every body is wounded,
    every mind fractured,
    every heart scarred,
    every 'soul' thirsty,

    confusion in the eyes,
    sorrow in the heart,

    where 'human' dignity has become a plaything,
    where the dwelling is one for worshiping of death,
    where death is cheaper than life,

    where youth has lost its youthfulness,
    where young bodies are displayed like chattels,
    where love is made into a business,

    where trust means nothing, friendship means nothing,
    where affection is for sale to the highest available bids,

    Well...

    So, what is it even if you win (or lose) the uni-verse?
    You are still left with nothing but ashes in your hands

    Yet,

    man's tears may give birth to the phoenix,
    once the eyes turn away from exemption towards accountability.

    Humans are, in the most general of terms, bad, but paradoxically they're the only ones who know what good is. Momma nature, in my humble opinion, wields the h. sapiens double-edged sword like a pro. She, it seems, is prepared to make major sacrifices to ensure we last long enough to learn how to correct her flaws. We must press on! For our own sakes we must!
