Malevolence in response to malevolence in response to predation.
nuke holocaust because terrorists nuked a city because US imperialism.
that's the "end-times" scenario i see most likely to happen. what would result from a sudden mushroom cloud over NYC or DC? it would get crazy and i could see many nukes going all over the place...
i think i misunderstood, overall life? predation is more destructive..
I agree with the malevolence part, but not the ignorance part. Ignorance is defined as unaware. Humans are perfectly aware of the dangers involved with recklessly cutting down trees and stuff. A better word to use is obstinate.
Loren Booda, as usual you have come up with a very thought-provoking poll. I chose Human Malevolence. I did so because nature seems to keep itself in check, and maintain homeostasis, until the introduction of Humans. In fact, the second stage of the development of an environment is caused by either natural disasters or human intervention (which is practically the same thing anyway).
