I did say that if it was caused by humans in any way we should help, didn`t I?

Canoas: And what`s wrong with liking the Beatles?!



On a serious note though, taking medicine is not `playing God` anymore than wearing your seatbelt while driving, so please don`t go there.

@CrakrJak and auburnjunky
We use man-made medicine to prevent, treat or cure diseases in humans and pets and well. Maybe you should stop using modern medicine, you don`t want to go to hell for "playing god", do you?

Also, they don`t play favourites on what to save, you just hear about the favourites because no one is interested in the others. No journalist has ever said "Hey, lets report how the south-african beetle was saved from extinction instead of showing cute pictures of pandas, everyone likes beetles."

Eat one reignblazer. I am entitled to speak just as you are.

I will say that if you have nothing to contribute to the topic, it is YOU that need to shut the drat up!

@AJ:

By that rationale we`d all still be stuck in the middle-ages.

Seriously, it`s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

CrakJak, tigers, pandas and whales are endangered largely because of human poaching, deforestation, whaling, fishing and ocean degradation. We also play favourites with the ones we want to destroy.

AJ: If you haven`t figured it out by now, yes, the eco-movement is indeed trying to play God in their efforts to stop `natural selection`.

They also play favorites with the ones they want to save, like with pandas, tigers, whales and such.

It kills by snot congestion. To me, it sounds like a terrible way to go. Let me get this straight, so now we have a nasty disease in both our top pollinating species?!

Are they seriously trying to stop natural selection?

Okay. Let me rewind. If this is a man-made illness, then fine. Make amends. Find a cure.

If not; Leave it alone!
