Its a good thing that the general public doesn't get to vote about which species to wipe out of existence.

I realize that's little comfort for someone who has malaria or is swarmed by them when going outside.
You're right. That's little comfort.

Mosquitoes are evil.

Disease-causing mosquitos (the others are OK)

Lionfish (horribly invasive and taking over habitats)

I'm seeing about more human deaths caused by alligators & bears. If it was up to you, which animals would be totally extinct? Now I like animals as much as the next person, but the ones who can always easily kill humans are another story & I wouldn't careif they were gone from this earth. & notice that they'll quickly kill an animal if it's killed a person. It's like an animal's life is more valued than a human's because we'd face consequences by law for harming/killing animals. If it were up to me, there would be no more of these animals on earth:


alligators
crocodiles
highly venemous snakes
highly venemous spiders


Now I won't say sharks because their home is the ocean & people don't really have to surf, etc., but of course you can't tell certain people that. But, it's personally fine w/ me to add sharks on the list too.

Now I know, technically people will say many things against it such as:

- the reason bears, cougrs, & maybe some alligators come into residential areas is because we're doing construction & their habitat is dwindling.

- well not all humans are more valuable than animals. What about all the prisoners who are murderers, rapists, etc. who contribute nothing to society?

- how scientists may be doing research on certain animals that may one day cure diseases/save us


Well, I'm not going to think about that. Certain animals just do no good. They just cause turmoil. & a human life should be more valuable than any animal's.

This is just meant to be interesting discussion, not to argue w/ anyone.

Humans kill more species than other animals, therefore humans should go extinct

Every animal goes extinct for one reason or another or evolves into something different. Humans will be no different. It's just a matter of time.

In a few decades or centuries, humans will evolve into cyborgs anyway, part human part machine. It's inevitable and it's the only way we can survive the coming A.I. Skynet takeover.

I have not read the thread. I would go for cockroaches and then anything poisonous (poisonous snakes, scorpions, etc.).
