Why do humans feel the need to save every living creature on the planet? It seems like every week I’m getting an e-mail from someone to support some cause. What is it in the human psyche that allows us to believe that we understand Mother Nature and natural selection better than nature itself. All of these single-minded, non-thinking, and non-critical thinking people who feel the need to save every living thing on the planet are wrong. If humans were meant to say if every living creature on the planet there would be no mother nature and there would be no natural selection. Natural selection is put into place in order to guarantee that the strongest of all species are left on the planet. This is a very simple concept and yet as smart as humans think they are their ego will not allow them to grasp this idea properly.
If we use critical thinking we would be able to deduce that if every living species and creature on the planet is allowed to live and natural selection is not allowed to take its course the entire species is weakened. Now I’m sure there is someone out there thinking that every living creature on the planet has a right to be here and a right to live. This idea is further from the truth when we are talking about natural selection. In nature animals that are not producing offspring that are healthy and strong natural selection kills them off. In nature strong mothers who bear weak offspring will naturally kill the weak baby. There are people that believe that this act is inhumane and I agree 100%. The act of an animal killing its sick and weak or broken offspring is inhumane but they are not human therefore it is a natural process. I would go on to argue that it is a necessary absolute natural process.
People who believe they are doing justice by stopping this natural process of nature are not using critical thinking. They allowing their own ego to get in the way, and showing a God like arrogance. When humans feel they can take the place of Mother Nature or the natural processes of the planet it can only in horribly. Humans do not have the capability because of emotion to make decisions on whom and what should live and who and what should die on this planet. It is arrogant to think we know better than Mother Nature. It is arrogant to think we should interrupt the process of natural selection. There is a great deal of animals that will kill or discard their offspring if touched by human hands. If you just use common sense you can come to the conclusion Mother Nature does not want or need human intervention. This means humans keep your hands off and ideas of saving every living creature out of Mother Nature’s business.
Now I hate to see animals kill their helpless little offspring but that is an emotional response. Our emotion has to be controlled and sometimes completely eliminated in order to use critical thinking. If we are able to calm our emotions and keep ego in check the understanding, every human on the planet should not be alive should also come to mind. This idea may be very hard to swallow but it is the absolute truth. We have doctors who play God and want to save every single human on the planet. Humans are only yet another species of animal therefore natural selection has to also take place in order for our species to thrive. If we allow every unintelligent person to breed and have offspring who are a little more unintelligent than their parents, then in a few generations what will we have? Will we eventually breed ourselves back into the Stone-Age? Don’t let these questions Shake your emotions, sit back for a second inhale, exhale and then think about the question.
I do not mean that someone should decide who’s smart and should live and who’s dumb (unintelligent) and should die. This would interfere with the process of natural selection. What I’m saying is, if we allow natural selection to take place as it does and should in the animal kingdom we should also allow the process in humanity. Harsh as it may seem it is the way this planet was setup to function. If you interrupt the natural function or natural flow of anything you disrupted the process and the processes become weaker. The funny thing is human intervention no matter how hard we try can only last for so long. Over time nature and the processes of natural selection will take place no matter how hard humans try to intervene. Human intervention and the “we must save this, we must save that” attitude cannot prevail over the natural processes of this planet.
As long as humans are under the mindset that they can save every living creature on the planet and every species on the planet we will eventually destroy ourselves. Think about this, an animal with a birth defect in nature by chance is allowed to breed. That birthed defect is carried on to the next generation, within a couple of generations the group, if they survive that long will become weaker, not able to hunt, and will even die off. If there is another stronger group and these two groups meet one group will eventually conquers the other weaker group. This is the process of natural selection. Natural selection cannot be avoided, it can only be slowed down but eventually the process of natural selection continues. Humans trying to interrupt nature and natural selection can only slow the process to a short time. Eventually the process will catch up with us and balance will be attained. The planet will find balance even if it means killing off an enormous amounts of the human population.
In closing, I would like to say the next time you see natural selection at work and your emotions compel you to step-in, stop, think, and then let the process happen. Sometimes humans are just not meant to interfere in the affairs of planetary balance. Natural selection is not a negative occurrence; instead it is a positive and necessary occurrence on this planet. Use the brain which has been allowed to evolve within your body to evoke critical thinking. Then try to understand how to become more like nature and have less of a God complex. Allow yourself to understand that these processes are necessary to the equilibrium of this planet.
We as humans cannot save or kill Mother-Earth but the Mother-Earth can save or kill us and to think any other way is just foolish.
