Subject: RE: BS: End of man-kind
"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."
King James Version, Genesis 1:28
This sentence sums up the problem perfectly. The earth cannot be subdued at all, and our dominion over every living thing is a display of our arrogance and ignorance to the other beings we share our planet with.
Luckily, nature has an answer and soon we'll go the way of the Dodo, another fowl our dominion over was brief and defined by reckless greed.
Shame really, we have so much potential.
