    u giv me this warm feeling, i totally agree with u. in all of these articles so far, i think yours is the best. yet it is not the humans falt that we raped, killed... it is evolution's falt. if we never evolved to be so smart, we would hav died off and the world would be in it's natural order. most of the things are destroyed by hmans. we make stuff to destroy stuff.why are we so killer!

    Response to this comment:
    Hypocrisy and Sadness

    I don't understand human hypocrisy. For years, the human has maimed, tortured, murdered, cut up, raped, burned, destroyed and eaten out of absolute sickness, greed, revenge and pleasure. When a bear kills one of us for food, we have to kill it or feel betrayed and we seek revenge. The truth is: Of all the lifeforms on this planet, the human is the ONLY beast. We are a terrible mutation that will be the doom of this planet and ourselves -- cancer kills its host and itself.

    Tim's death proves that without our cowardly guns and knifes and explosives, we are nothing more than walking wounds, lacking any special traits at all, except in our intent on destroying every single thing we touch.

    If the bear had NOT been murdered immediately by the rangers (who did so with pleasure I am sure), Tim would have forever been a part of a cycle he loved so much. Again, the rangers shot and killed the bear, thereby ending the cycle of death and birth. We just refuse to understand that if we are killed by an animal, we become part of that animal and its world. Why are we so special that we not be food for that which has no artificial supermarket and is only doing what it has done for centuries? It didn't do it out of pleasure, but out of hunger. Tim was in ITS world.

    We are attached to the body so much. It is merely a package. So what if it is used by a bear to survive? There is nothing wrong with that fact. Our corrupt, lying religious institutions make us think we are beyond these harsh realities. To be pumped full of fluids to preserve our dead body is better than being eaten by a bear!? I think we have lost our way. It is this anti-natural way of thinking that proves we are a mutation against all that is basic and true.

    I hike miles and miles each year and if I am killed by a wild animal and eaten, then I have become an instrument that allowed such an animal to live one more day and escape our onslaught of apartments and factories and slavery. What better way to assist nature. I would rather my meat be used to feed nature and my bones be bleached white by the sun then thrown in a box that costs $4000 only to be buried underground.

    Forgive my lengthy post, but I have weighed such thoughts over the years. Do not be attached to the body. It is an empty shell once deceased. Better to be consumed by nature than be filled with fluids that preserve us and be buried in a box 6 feet under the ground to rot without purpose. We have lived in the 14th Century far too long. Peace and Goodwill. I hope these words do not fall on deaf ears.
