sixth mass extinction

If It Makes You Happy



The Earth is undergoing the sixth big extinction
in Earth's history, - this one caused by humans.




"Every creature is better alive than dead,

men and moose and pine trees,

and he who understands it aright

will rather preserve life than destroy it
."

Henry David Thoreau




I think I could turn and live with animals,

they are so placid and self-contain'd,

I stand and look at them long and long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,

They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,

They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,

Not one is dissatisfied,

not one is demented with the mania of owning things,

Not one kneels to another,

nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,

Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole Earth.

Walt Whitman

"Convergent evidence indicates that non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors.

Consequently, the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substrates that generate consciousness.

Non-human animals, all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopus, also possess these neurological substrates."

The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness



35,000 BC

Homo sapiens caused the demise of the genus Homo neanderthalensis.

This was probably done in three ways: by driving small family groups off of productive land, by genocidal extermination of a being seen as inferior - a communal sin and by intermarriage.

2004 ADDetailed series of population surveys that comb virtually every square yard of England, Scotland and Wales over 40 years show a sharp decline in populations of bird and butterflies of 54% to 71% with some species gone altogether.

1,254 native plant species showed a decrease of about 28% over the same period.

300 critically endangered species as well as 237 endangered and 267 vulnerable species exist in unprotected areas having a 50% probability of extinction within 10 years.

"This is the tip of the iceberg. There is a window of opportunity here. Many species across the face of Earth are hanging on to little bits of habitat."- Ana Rodrigues

Ana Rodrigues identified sites in the Andes, in Sierra Madre mountains in southern Mexico, on islands in Southeast Asia, on Madagascar and in southern India as areas of high biodiversity and low protection.

2007 In the spring thousands fewer seals were killed in the Canadian seal hunt in the southern Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Unusually warm weather led to the drowning of thousands of baby seals as the sea ice melted before the baby seals learned to swim.

In September three blue whales washed up on Southern California shores after a judge decreed in August that the navy can go ahead with a high power sonar 'test' off the coast of Southern California.

2008 Thousands of bats are dying from an unknown illness in the Northeast at a rate that could cause extinction.

At eight caves in New York and one in Vermont, scientists have seen bat populations plummet over two years.

A cave that had 1,300 bats in January 2006 recently had just 38 mostly underweight bats.

At another cave, more than 90% of about 15,500 bats have died since 2005.

"A quarter of all mammal species are now endangered, mostly because their habitat is disappearing." - Olivia Judson October 14, 2008



Goodbye Cruel Life




unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
