Well, it's hard because there are loads of wars and bad stuff going on. Humans in general kinda destroy the ecosystem but some good things do happen, so we do have a chance but we need to work hard and TOGETHER not individually and stop starting wars.

It's hard to say. I mean, what with all the wars and shit going on because of race, religion, sexuality etc., it's common belief that we're headed in the wrong direction; that our world is shit and no one seems to learn from past mistakes.

However there's always something good happening too; sometimes it's just being hidden beneath all the bad stuff that's happening.

So I guess I believe that we have a chance, but we have to work as hard as we can in order to get there.

all the time i see all this crap where everyone is hating each other, killing, being racist, ect. but then i see people doing noble acts of humanity, like doing nice things to animals, other people, cheering people up, or doing something for the greater good. whenever i see that happening, i get really happy, and i see there is still hope for all of us. even if it is just a little bit, there is hope.

Humanity isn't explained by a group, since everyone's just a human as everyone else. I think there's hope.

We are who we grew up to be after all, it depends on the parents to be good and raise them right >< with every new generation there's a chance to fix things and have humans well, not be shit.

Well, you got people who only care about money and fuck up the planet, and you got those who only want to see blood flowing on the streets, and then there's the media guys who want to have everyone else panicking, and then the "normal" people who thinks it's completely fine to bully and/or screw other people over, but you also got the ones that help protect others and find cures for diseases and try to stop the global warming and are very lovely.
But then again, it's easier to break something than to build or fix it, so in that case humans are not that great.

In general? Humans are idiots and untrustworthy. They need to prove themselves as otherwise if they want to be considered as a species with any hope at all for survival. :shrug:
I mean, let us face it, we are bringing ourselves towards our own extinction and not even doing anything about it. The longer we leave the pollution problem and all of those other critical issues, the less likely it is we will survive it all.

Not that the Earth will care, it will just rebuild once we are gone. XP

I have some ideas, but the tricky part is implementing them. I mean, the economy depends so much on things like fossil fuels that outright replacing them (in this case, with things like hydrogen fuel cells) would cause a bit of a dramatic change in the economy.
We most likely need to ease into it, and the sooner that gets going the better. If we intend to save ourselves from global warming (and it is happening), that is.
Otherwise we may as well just put poison in the water supplies and be done with it.

Not from what I can tell, since I rarely see any vehicles using anything but fossil fuels. cx
If they want to have a chance of saving the human race, they had better pick up the pace. Otherwise...
Well, the dinosaurs say "hello". XD

list of fully electric cars: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_…

nearly all major auto companies have at least one hybrid gas/electric model, or hybrid versions of existing models (the toyota prius and honda civic hybrid are rather popular)

the major issue with alternative fuels for cars at this point is that the cost of making them (and making them in a way people would want/could use) makes it pretty hard to actually get any on the road. believe me, theyre working on it, but theres not a lot that can go into action at this point. for example the most recent Tesla currently runs about 80k USD. the cheapest new full electric car i could find was 24k USD. and it didnt get popular at all because of the size- which was rather small, to cut the cost down. the cheapest normal-car-sized full electric was 30k USD. and electric cars dont tend to end up on used lots for any cheaper.

humans and human society in general isnt really the problem here- tell anyone how this electric car could get four times their current vehicle's "gas" mileage and theyll want one, regardless of their views on environmental issues or anything. the problem is the big energy companies and in some cases the governments- far, far from the entire human race.

I don't think my faith is complete but I also think it's because of my paradign. I try to see the world as Rousseau states "born good but society corrupts" but it seems like it's becoming more corrupt even within the womb due to outside forces like gmos. Like we fucked up the earth and it's balance like there needs to be more good even if there is good in the bad most of the time. Media has just skewed it so much to make a depressed society from the start with Propoganda and bowdlerizing a bunch of junk.. I just im loosing faith but I do try to be a humanitarian in the end because after all it is all a chain reaction.

Ah I just used it as an example of how society is pretty much getting its hands onto any little thing to destroy it like making bad food or something so when pregnant it can harm the baby, I'm not sure how to explain it but like it's just how the man or just media/society is digging very deeply into the population

Not exactly the point of genetic manipulation...
Reply
:iconstarboat:
starboat Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
its not the point but its far too often ending up a side effect, particularly since GMO operations are being pushed forward more and more without enough testing. its uncommon, but it happens, and companies that operate in these kinds of things are pushing for less regulations so they can keep doing it more- because itll let them push out more product more quickly and make more money.

like vintage-meow mentioned, Monsanto is one of the biggest ones doing this. theyve frequently tried to do things as crazy as copyright breeding techniques in farm animals and specific genetic makeups in seed, but thankfully, to my knowledge, its all been struck down.

Seeing how things have gone to shit already I dont really feel good about the future. We're all gonna disappear either way, if nature kills us or we kill ourselves but notice it after its too late.
Currently it seems like humanity is trying to fix the problems it caused by itself, the good people always try to fix the things the idiots break, I dont know where this is supposed to go

I'm a really optimistic person and as a base assumption I can't help assuming people are good so every time something awful happens or a person turns out to be terrible I'm really shocked and surprised

I guess at some point I'm probably gonna become jaded and cynical but idk when

Hm, somewhat. Some people are just (for a lack of better words) a great big bag of dicks, but not everyone is like that. Actually, a lot of people are trying to fix the mistakes we've made in the past and make the world a better place. So yeah, I'm pretty neutral. I think it's wrong to judge all of  humanity and say "There is no hope whatsoever" when its only one individual case, though.

Wow these results are really surprising D:
The way I see it, humans are the kindest and most caring animals of all. No other animals go out of their own way like we do to help others. Some of us even go out of our own way to help other species despite the fact that there is no gain in it for us, and that is amazing, no other species cares this much. There are always bad noddles but the way I see it, most of us are not those bad noodles. We've done amazing things that no other species has been able to achieve and its just really cool, its so strange yet interesting that this has all happened *u*

Yes, indeed, though I know people generally tend to be pessimistic about these things, or judge a whole group based on a few rotten individuals, such things x)
Yea, I agree with that. I don't know, we do bad things (with or without knowing), we also do good things.But I think that the majority of us tries to do what they think is best, even if that may not always be the best for others. I don't know, I think very few people act "bad" on purpose - what is good and what is bad is very subjective also.
And yes :dummy:

I also think its because of our impact on the earth and how much we have destroyed. Honestly, with how big our population is it would be almost impossible to prevent all the destruction we have caused, but at least we're putting in effort to keep our earth healthy too, even if it's just a few of us C:
