"There have been at least four catastrophic events leasing to mass extinction...at least two of them due to species emerging qualities that make themselves or other forms of life untenable. Fascinating stuff if you have time to read about it."

"As Spock would say "fascinating". Cyanobacteria actually changed  he atmosphere, killing off life that couldn't adapt. I need to know how long that transformation took, was it just a century or two or was it thousands or millions…"

"It depends upon what you mean by "pollution", as, historically, there is extensive evidence of assorted life forms poisoning the planet. One huge example: The Great Oxygenation Event (GOE), otherwise known as the Oxygen Holocaust,…"

"Straight up communism, Comrade.  ;)  Competition(for resources) is no way in which to base a society, since it is antithetic to human survival, and we see this all around us everyday--at least I do.  Hence, capitalismo had got to go."

"What I've described are the evolutionary pressures that make us behave differently from the other great apes.  We all notice it when cooperation does not work, but we tend not to notice all the rest of the time when everyday life is made…"

Simon Paynton replied to Tyrion's discussion 'Do humans benefit the Earth? If so, explain.'
"I think the organising principle of human morality, and key to understanding it, is cooperation, and our need for it as a survival strategy, since we moved onto the savannah, and ever since.  Cooperation creates interdependence, which creates…"

matt.clerke replied to Tyrion's discussion 'Do humans benefit the Earth? If so, explain.'
"So a better way to rephrase your question is To which I'm afraid I must still ask you to define "harm" in the context of "the Earth". What does it mean to "harm" or to "benefit" a planet? And when you say…"

"The majority of human beings living on the earth in recent history do not benefit it. Why? Consumer capitalism/imperialism."

Gregg RThomas replied to Tyrion's discussion 'Do humans benefit the Earth? If so, explain.'
"@_Robert_: an unverifiable claim.  If a species in the past had eaten all it's food supply and then died off from starvation, there would be no evidence of that after a sufficient amount of time passes."

Gregg RThomas replied to Tyrion's discussion 'Do humans benefit the Earth? If so, explain.'
"@Tyrion: We are stuck in the NOW, the future doesn't exist yet and the past is a fading memory. Evidence is based on a person's mindset and worldview. Standards for what passes as evidence changes throughout time and will continue to…"

"Humans are possibly a great evolutionary mistake and we will be lucky if we survive another thousand years (and all other creatures will be Lucky if they survive us too).. All other life never kills off all of what it needs, there is…"

Gregg RThomas replied to Tyrion's discussion 'Do humans benefit the Earth? If so, explain.'
"@Tyrion: Silly question, you are asking it from a human point-of-view.  If no humans, there wouldn't be that question.  Who or what would ask it or answer it?"

Davis Goodman replied to Tyrion's discussion 'Do humans benefit the Earth? If so, explain.'
"Well...if you're referring to the predatory paracites...then yes...we are collosal predatory paracites...brutally disrupting almost every eco-system there is and making air sea and land less habitable for all organisms (bateria, plant life,…"

"Benefit is perhaps not the word I was looking for. Maintain the Earth in comparison to other organisms.  What would the condition of the Earth and its life be like had humans never existed? Better? Worse? I'm not really looking for a…"

Hi Tyrion and  welcome to Think Atheist. We don't claim to know any absolute truth. Atheism is a lack of belief in God(s) rather than a denial of them. Feel free to post a discussion on anything that you might like us to answer. We will try to offer you alternative viewpoints.
