The following is a snip from a comment to a facebook post by a friend of mine regarding the terrible recent mudslide in California. It is a perfect illustration of a large chunk of “the problem.”
such a tragic sequence of events. Nature is damaged to such an extent across the world. Our prayers go out to all those affected
I agree, totally, how can I not… that it is tragic for those who chose to live in such a precarious place and I, too, send prayers and good karma forth to them and their families.
The bold italics were added by me and are the focus of this brief little quip.
Nature … is not damaged.
In any way, shape or form.
This is just like the completely bogus anthropomorphic global warming hooey. Nature is going to do whatever it does. Nature does not recognize that people are there.
If you “relate” to this person’s comment, you have shown that you have zero understanding of nature and science. The people who are telling you what to think have zero understanding of nature and science. The people who are telling them what to say are doing so only to generate revenue … from you.
So, please, stop, think… okay?
