If humans were to be wiped out and became extinct overnight, would the end of the human race be a tragedy? Or would it be a cause for celebration, the end of a malignant tumour in our ecosystem? Maybe it would be neither?
The loss of humans from this earth would be tragic
We bring something to this planet that no other species does
Human beings are the only species with an advanced level of reasoning.
Human technological & scientific progress has so much potential
It would be tragic if this potential went unexplored because of extinction of the human race.
Without humans, many other animals would go extinct
The extinction of the human race would cause other extinctions, making it a tragedy.
With no humans left, it would have no meaning.
There are no humans left to give it meaning
There are no humans left to consider the event a "tragedy"
The method by which be became extinct would impact how tragic the extinction was
Two different scenarios
An argument considering the different outcomes of two extinction scenarios
The world would be better off without us
Extinction would prevent future generations being born into this world that is so full of suffering.
We’re a virus with shoes
Humans cause immeasurable destruction and devastation to the earth’s environment and its other species.
