  • Check out these lyrics, then ask if human extinction would be a tragedy.

    It’s tragic to humans given we have transcribing the events for quite some time. Not too read or have an oral commentator to continue this tragic epic reduces the human to having no discernible purpose. A story with no end? Or one with no remaining whitenesses? And would seem almost like there was no universal godlike bring after all.

  • A large portion of humanity existing because of the efforts of a few (Alexander Fleming anyone).

    We are poisoning ourselves so our demise may well be assured.
