That would assume a premise whereby humans are on earth, but are not allowed to eat, build homes or procreate......absurd. Not allowed to breathe for that matter.......

Humans, animals, earth, we are all one......mental, physical, spiritual.....comprised of the same organic compounds, all connected, etc.......cancer is an aberration, DNA gone wild. So while some humans may be compared to "cancer cells" (I'm not naming names), this is a sweeping generalization and unworthy of robo's usually intelligent posts.Wheeewrobo hiker <robohiker at hotmail.com> wrote:

If you spread them out in their natural habitat, instead of stacking them all on top of each other in the non-sustainable, over-populated, heavily polluted cities, I doubt there'd be enough "natural habitat" to sustain us. So who wants to volunteer to go first??? Sorry folks, there's just too many of us. Open season.......!!!!!
Switchback replies: I hope you are not thinking of starting with Trail Pirates. I know a lot of hikers who would do that, but I figure you are my pal and would not. Say, I heard one time that there are more deer, bears, and trees in the continental US than there were when the colonist came over here from the old world.
I think I could buy the first two, but I don't know about trees. I think this might be true in the Sierras, since we control fires and trees have taken over so many of the old open areas/meadows. When they compare current pictures of different areas to the pictures of 100 years ago, trees are like weeds. I noticed this too in AZ going up for the 12,633 foot Mt. Humphrey expedition. Driving up to the parking lot, I noticed how the trees looked like weeds growing near the road. Sad how we screw things up for our human standards instead of Mother Nature's.
