    The earth gives us life.

    End of story.

    It deserves some kind of recognition and respect for that role.

    I totally agree. But i really dont believe that a mosquito or an insect deserves the same rights as a human being. They really are not on the same status as a human..
    But being that said we should respect this earth to the fullest.

    Life, or Mother Earth, is a super-thin layer on this rock hurtling around a gigantic nuclear bomb.

    Regardless of who put it here, life may only exist here, and a cavalier dismissal of this simple reality is assinine.

    Especially from those who also declare all space exploration pointlessly expensive.

    So we're stuck in the petri dish with people who don't seem to want to grasp that we live in a HUGE PETRI DISH.

    /rant

    So without Mother Nature we all die. (Or never were more accurately)

    Some recognition is in order.

    Some acknowledgement that our technology has reached a level where the activities of a few could have consequences for us all.

    Something reasonable. Like our life support system is actually important to our survival.

    Was just simply saying the US does try to control the world, and the US desperately tries to be the policeman of the world...

    I just went outside and, in recognition of Mother Earth's good work, gave her a little feel.

    She seemed to like it.

    I think mother earth is a cold hearted bitch that needs to be tamed. Look at what she did to the poor people of Japan.

    Well seriously, some of you talk about the planet like goofballs who think she loves and nurtures us. Even if we set off every nuke in the world all at the same time, the planet would survive, life on this planet would survive and eventually it would evolve into a whole new set of creatures etc.

    The argument really isn’t about life on earth long term, it is about money for most (socialists) and the preservation of all life forms as they are now for others (enviro-nuts). Neither one is logical.

    The Earth does not give us life, God created all things for us to use and they react to a set of rules based on biology, physics, and what we do is controlled by our free will. Animals react based on nature within the rules the Lord set up.

    The earth is not a sentient entity.

    If it were the whack jobs that claim the Earth gets even for transgressions like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell might have a point to make.

    Are there things we can do better? Damn right and miracles can come with the power of prayer. The Lord answers all prayers but sometime that answer is no.

    The US does pay the most for the Socialist UN but what we try to do is influence not control or Germany and Japan would not be Sovereign Nations as well as some others.

    You can be green without being a weenie or radical about it. It seems logic goes out the window when ever this stuff come up.
