Default If there were no humans...

If the Earth didn't have any Humans on it, do you suppose that the World would keep on keepin' on? Or would everything just crumble into dust? I mean the Earth couldn't possibly survive without us to help it along, right?

It would continue just fine. Things went for billions of years without us, and will continue in some form after we are gone.

Mother Nature would flourish once again without us much like it did ten thousand years ago. Earth's destruction will continue until we learn we are nature and not above it and must obey nature's laws or until we destroy ourselves.

Every time I drive to a populated area I think the same thing.
This was probable a nice place before all the people came here and screwed it up.
I always enjoyed the program Life without people.

depends on the people. animal and plant life would be doing a lot better without some people, ~ the greedy stupid type.

but other people are doing a great stewardship of caring for animals and plants, by stopping wildfires~forrest fires ~harvesting plants for animal food ~ harvesting timber for lumber ~ protecting animals from disease & the elements ~ protecting aniamls from other animals. & protecting animals & the earth from people who dont care but think they know everything

then there are many who poison the oceans and the earth with their garbage, plastic , boby wash and shampoo, and cry ~ dont cut down trees, dont plant trees , dont dam the rivers, dont clean the lakes , leave the animals alone, dogs evolved into whales because this was natures way. the myth of 'natures balance'

One thing that I have wondered about is that in order to build a septic system at my place, I first had to get a permit, do a perk test, then hire a licensed and bonded contractor to install it etc. All of this at exceptional expense. But, anyone can throw a dirty diaper into the trash can. Just one of the many mysteries of the universe.
