From his amazing capacity for rampant, conscience free predation to his incredible self worship and ego loving idiocy, mankind has been an excellent example of how to consistently do the wrong thing to perpetuate his species since the dawn of creation.

Whatever we may occasionally disagree on, AG, I respect you and find you to be extremely ethical. I agree with the above statement, too, with all my heart. The biggest question i have for anybody who wants to listen is this:

How can we do everything wrong over and over and over, in so many different areas of life, and expect the planet to just keep giving us all its bounty?

 How can we spend a thousand years worth of resources in a hundred years, fight dozens of unnecessary wars, and expect to have enough resources left to have food, medicine, and people care?

Eddie,
Thank you for your vote of confidence. Considering the credibility problem I have here because I am a Christian, never mind that I am a hard boiled, do the math, science educated geek in regard to what is true and what ain't in the physical universe, that helps muffle the mockers somewhat.   

Always remember that when I debate you, I am doing it in the spirit of the following wise proverb:

I was raised in Kansas and that's they way the people of good will communicate there. I'm certain that in Texas, it is no different.

By the way, I just watched a fantastic video of the Monarch butterfly life cycle in the Western Hemisphere (Monarchs in other parts of the planet don't migrate or, if they do migrate, they migrate a much shorter distance).

Every year, hoards of them fly through Texas on their way to the Mexican wintering haven (that the Homo SAPS there are busy illegally logging and destroying because, uh, "they've got to feed their kids" . It seems Homo apex predatorus stupidus is well represented in Mexico too. And the (fossil fuel based) pesticides and herbicides emitted from crop duster aircraft in the USA kill thousands of Monarchs before they get there.

The irony of watching the video footage of a Monarch being wasted by a crop dusting aircraft is that the documentary video was SPONSORED by ExxonMobil and David Koch. How ecologically friendly of them. 

The "the Mexicans are the worst bad guys"  ;) SPIN is present in the video. These fossil fuelers are VERY clever. Please observe the amount of time they devote to all the damage being done by illegal logging (interviews with law enforcement, illegal loggers and  biologist warnings with lots of dead tree footage) compared with less than a minute of a crop duster plane spraying a field and offing a single Monarch.  Not a SINGLE interview with the drop dusters and not a single recommendation to outlaw crop dusting, OF COURSE! Profits must be preserved!

But the life cycle info and footage of these delicate beauties that fly 2000 miles every fourth generation (they KNOW where they are going without being taught. They caught some in Kansas, moved them to the East coast, and they still found their way to Mexico!  :o :emthup:).

Here's the video if you haven't seen it. Please let me know if you have witnessed the migration. Be sure to thank MKing for helping bring it to you.
