humans are actaully herbivores. our bodies are designed that way. omnivores or carnivores have sharp teeth, we do not. they have claws, we do not. our digestive system is related to a herbivore's digestive system. not a omnivore or carnivores. thats why we have too cook our food. natural omnivores or carnivores do not need to cook their meat.
Every race in the galaxy has done the same thing to their planet as we are to ours! It's the way of life. If the human race wishes to survive, we need to perfect space travel in order to find another inhabitable planet so we may continue the human race. That is the true legacy of the universe! Human's will learn in time what they are doing to each planet they live on. They will learn and they we correct many mistakes we have made in the past. If we don't wise up, the human race may no longer be alive...
ive noticed for awhile
what do we do?
what is knowledge without action
you brought this to our attention
so we can dwell in dispare
along with every worthy thing on it
at our hands

Sorry,239, but we did not always cook our meat; any more than we cooked vegetables or cereals. We simply found, over time, that cooked food was easier to digest, and tasted better. People still eat uncooked meat (Steak Tartare?). My mother often ate raw liver; because she liked it better raw. Many diners will order "blue steak"; raw in other words,or as near raw as makes no difference. And by the way, our teeth are very sharp!

Thanks Brysing, saved me from having to point out our canine teeth.
One comment on overpopulation. Humans as a species are growing. We have been for quite some time. The scientific truth of the matter is that a living species is either growing, or it is dying. There is no such thing as a stable population of a certain number. Yes we have done much to our environment to change it, that is one of the reasons we as a species have been as successful as we are.
Keep in mind if you are the sort who thinks that the earth would be better off with less people, you are advocating the death of people you care about. Say you think that there should be 2 billion rather than 7 billion (for an example). That means that you think that only 2 out of 7 of your friends and family should live. Can you make the choice of who has the right to live? Would you like it if it was random? Remember, you are included in that 2 out of 7. That isn't very good odds.
The best thing we as a species can do for the environment and ourselves is try to find ways to minimize the damage we do. Keep in mind also that we are not the only animals or plants that are damaging to the environment we live in. A lot of people assume all the "damage" to the earth is our fault. A lot of it isn't. Life is brutal. Living creatures will do anything up to and including damaging their environment to survive. It's a fact of life that if a species isn't willing to do that, it dies.
Some people do care for the environment. There are many scientists working on cleaner more efficient ways to live the way we like to live. Many people recycle (myself included). Better to spend your time looking into how you can help the problem than talking about how we're overpopulated and things are changing. Things will always change. It's up to you and those around you to make sure you try to change them for the better.

I see what is going on and personally i believe this is normal, as horrifying this my seem to us this is part of our Earth Mother's cycle. I find it imposable to believe that these occurrences are brought on because she is mad at us. one thing the Earth Mother teaches us in this human experience is that she is all about change for the bettering of your self: Plants do it; animals do it; she do it. These natural geological and climactic events is the way the Earth Mother protects herself and flow in-line with her cosmic order. I do admit that we may do things that may seem harmful and may shorten the atmosphere and environment that is comfortably viable for human existence, but it is something that is bound to happen sooner or later. sometimes we fail to see that the Earth Mother has her own life cycle to play out, just as we do and her other planetary siblings as well. another thing every thing we use comes from her or her cosmic physical outer realm (outer space)in some way or another, and returns back to her someway or another as well, so I don't think so much is going on, this is what is suppose to happen. also i don't believe this is a personal attack of any kind.
One thing no one should do is dwell on yesterday, learn from it and move forward. Events, moments occur every second of everyday the best thing to do is look onward and also a lesson i think we can learn is, how to grow and be self improving while respecting our self, each other, our Earth Mother's domain, and the cosmic universe.

Yes,forte! The Earth is changing, as it has done for millions of years. At times my country has been covered by a tropical sea, then it was a desert, then it was covered in ice.It has gone through many changes, animal, vegetable and mineral.
As much as I hate what is going on now, I believe that this time right now IS a cycle. The time of death is creeping ever so closer and not because of all these disasters or myths; it is because we have already had our cycle of birth, now its time to move on to the spin of the wheel.
