Dying of starvation, eating your own young so as not to waste protein in times of famine (hey, if you starve they're going to die anyway but if you eat them then at least you have a chance of making it), having no defense against disease or predators and being completely at the whims of nature sounds like a swell plan. Tell me again why you're on the internet and not hunter-gathering nomad?
Elephants devastate forests.
Which competitors? Humans don't really have any competitors thanks to our ability to transcend out environment. Adaptability is an evolved trait. Look at us, we're crap! We aren't fast, we're not agile, we have puny teeth, nonexistent claws, we're not especially large and we're not especially strong. All we have is adaptability, group cohesion and long distance running ability. That's it. So we adapt to our environments and we adapt our environments.
Nature has a tendency to be interrelated. It sounds so cool except "interrelated" generally means they eat each other
Finally you're starting to get it.
U think im some hippie that gives a shi t if humans are more evil/devastatig than other creatures. Im not. I know we are and im ok with it. You're the one who cant seem to accept it. I cant believe you're ttying to deny that humans are the only species that will specifically aim to eliminate any other species in our way.
Competitors with humans would be:
Perhaps today, competitors to humans doesnt seem realstic, but guess what piggy, we had competitors. I know its difficult because it doesnt fit your
condescending rebuttels, but its true. We hoarde them together in pens or reservations where they are allowed to exist (or sometimes we just kill every one of them like the red wolf).
Elephants ravage forests yes, but they leave plenty behind and they dont take more than they need so stfu with another horrible example.
If you fuk with us and you're a different species, you die. If you touch our food, you die. We are much more evil all in all and its not even close.
Please stop with the misguided beaver and ants examples. Its not even close to they way we shape the environment and the way we cultivate to benefit us and hurt other species. Intentionally.
