Pro-Death = REAL Pro-Life

In the words of Frank Herbert:

"Its ["it" being Life] aim is simple: to maintain and produce coordinated patterns of greater and greater diversity. Life improves the closed system’s capacity to sustain life. Life - all life - is in the service of life. Necessary nutrients are made available to life by life in greater and greater richness as the diversity of life increases."

It amazes me that the majority of people view evolution as a process whose aim is to create "better" species, and that we are the "best" and therefore entitled to do whatever we please with the Earth. The *true* aim of evolution is to create MORE species, not better ones. Biological diversity is the purpose of life, because a diverse ecosystem (and, by extension, a diverse planet) is more able to adapt to change and survive.

The human species has already destroyed one third of the other species on Earth by even the most conservative estimates. I mean, approximately 90% of biodiversity exists on land, so the appropriation of 40% of the land on this planet by the human species is a clear indication of just how bad things really are.

Anyway, my point at last: If the aim of life is the evolution of diversity, and modern humans are destroying that diversity at such a catastrophic rate, then to be anti-human, to be pro-(human)death, is actually to be *truly* pro-life.
