    A good question....

    Do we as a species deserve to exist...

    Have we given back anything that would merit our continued existence... hmm

        Maybe that is where the ancient/modern religions belief that we should suffer came from? (which for the record I disagree with)

      Who's the judge? The human race is a collective of individuals. Can we defend our own behavior, or that of our species. They're different questions.

          Individuals are humanity though. Are we all the same?

            Ok when a team goes and competes, it is the team that wins. Yes they are made up of individuals but the team is also an Entity.

            When you defend just yourself and not humanity, are you going to be defending 'all' your molecules collectively or do they have to each defend themselves individually?   hmm

              Hollie Thomasposted 6 years agoin reply to this

              No, what I was attempting to say, obviously not very well, is that I couldn't defend humanity. I can defend myself, and also point to a few errors in my ways, but I cannot defend my species. They have done despicable things, but not with my blessing or approval.

      Knight - when a rabid racoon bites a human, we don't annihilate the entire racoon population.  When a lion attacks a trainer, we don't annihilate the entire lion population.  I stand in defense of my life on the planet and my worth as a human.  I vow to protect other animals who cannot care for themselves.  Do away with the warmongers, rapists, abusers, haters.  I shall not lift a finger against the judges.

    I think I've got it.


    Defend Yourselves is the answer.

    We as a species tend to defend those that can't defend themselves. We root for the underdog! We sacrifice even our own lives to protect others, not just other people but all kinds of others.

    That is a why we should be aloud to exist.

    the human race is being judged as a single just as the human race judged other races as weak or beneath them american indains africans turned into slaves the point is if you had to defend the exsistance of the human race how would you do it by reading the post already put down all i see is arguements about judging individually and i live my life good as a whole the human race is on the block so defend it there is no question about individuals i know alot of you do live good lifes from what i have read about ye but i am asking how do you defend the human race not individuals and so far ye have not stop thinking like individuals would be a start now try again if you think you can defend the exsistance of the human race............
