Humans: Natural or Un-Natural
There has been a question lingering in this brain of mine since I can remember. Are we, as humans, considered to be natural? Well in this entry I will be describing views I have came up with on why we should be considered a natural element of nature. Feel free to comment, as always I love to read them. Thank you.
Natural Part of Nature
What really is the "Natural Part of Nature?" Could the natural part of nature be anything not dealing with humans? That statement seems incorrect because if humans are not a natural part of nature than why and how are we here. The fact of the matter with humans being a part of nature is that humans are part of nature. It may seem "Un-Natural" but the reality of everything humans have created is that it came from the earth, humans have figured out ways to manipulate that to create the buildings, cars, computers, and any other object you see on earth that is "man-made." Humans are nature, natural, and have the instincts that all animals have.
Think about this, an animals goal in life is to breed and eat. Straight to the point. As humans we are more advanced than "animals" are but humans still have the instictiveness to breed and eat also. Come on now there are over 6 billion people in the world, that should be proof enough. Looking at the animal cycle it can be seen that as more predators increase the food decreases. Take Coyotes for an example. When the rabbit population is thriving, the coyote population becomes thriving, why? Because there is plenty of food to go around. Once the rabbit population dies down from diseases and being fed upon by coyotes, would you not know that the coyote population will slowly start to decrease from straving coyotes and diseases. This is a perfect example of "nature" at it's best. No matter how hard coyotes try to increase their population it controls itself.
Natural Disasters: Tragedy's or Necessary
Let's face it Natural Disasters are seemingly increasing each year. Whether it be a fire, hurricane, tornado, flood, eathrquake or tsunami there have been more devestating natural disasters than have been seen in a very long time. Who can help but wonder, "Is this mother natures way of telling us we are over populated?" Are these natural disasters necessary? Natural disasters seem to be mother natures way of telling us "The more populated humans become the harder I have to try." Humans are doing very well right now and are thriving. Reason being humans have the knowledge to pro-long their own life. With advances in medical science and just science humans figured out how to cure diseases, which the animal world has yet to discover. Which seems to be as hard as humans may try our population can still be ruled by mother nature.
Well as much as global warming is talked about and feared I feel global warming is really just a load of BS that is instilled into our brains. Sure global warming is happening but how long will it take before it actually destroys the world and all man kind. Or more of the question, how can humans defeat this "natual disaster" from happening? This whole entry was made from a talk with a "tree-hugger" I had. To me I am as much of nature as any animal there is. Which is why I hunt. It is natural to do so, since the begining of time man has been hunting. To me hunting is more natural than being a vegan and afraid to eat meat because a poor deer was killed.
As you can tell I am a heavy set hunter and naturalist. I love nature and want to preserve it any way I can. Hunting to me is a natural part of nature and if I were to let that slip by me I would be going against what I was trying to do, preserving nature. Humans are nature and everything around is nature and natural. There has been a mind set instilled into our brains that because we built buidlings and cars we have become un-natural. But does a bird build a nest? Does a coyote make a den? Do humans make houses? We are a part of nature, there is nothing un-natural about a human. Humans are natural.
