Now, now... surely we can come up with better solutions to our world's problems than destroying the planet? Even if you've lost all faith in humanity, keep in mind that we're not the only species who exists on this planet anyway... =)

I would argue that however bad the situation is, destruction is never an option. Noone would gain anything from it. Obviously.

Who would benefit from our annihilation anyway?

I don't feel the world is in THAT bad of shape. Justin Bieber may be the issue, but I don't want to die over him.

I think the world is in a very bad way with everything going on (When you consider we probably know very little compared to what is actually happening) but no I don't believe it should be destroyed. My reasoning is 100% selfish. The world may suck but my life is amazing and I wouldn't trade my fiance, family, friends and puppies for anything.

No, but about 95% of the people in the world are pigs and should be "destroyed", not the earth itself. Only about 5% of the world population (probably less) is made up of decent human beings that are actually worth being spared.

And fortunately none of them are poor, starving or infected, so we'll cure poverty, world hungry and disease as well. Woo.

I'm not sure what you're getting at.

There's nothing outrageous or unusual about that claim whatsoever.

Yes. Obviously the only reasonable thing for us to do to better the world is to destroy it in its entirety. Bravo OP

When most people say we should learn from the likes of Hitler, Mao Tsetung, Stalin, etc. they mean we shouldn't repeat history and all of that sentimental jazz.

I'm saying that the 5% worth saving are likely healthy, civilized, financially capable people, ergo killing the other 95% will eradicate other problems. The title "decent human beings" no doubt has other strings attached. After all, if you're going to cleanse the planet, you wouldn't want one of the survivors to have an infectious disease.

For the sake of starting off right, make sure the 5% are all between 18 and 40, in good health, have been vaccinated, are all fertile, can all read/speak/write at least one similar language, know how to kill and cook animals and have practical field hospital training. For best results, make sure at least one is an EOD (explosive ordinance disposal) technician, one is a HazMat specialist, and one is a fully trained surgeon with a teachers degree from an Ivy League university.

For optimal reproduction levels, at least 40% of the 5% should have professional EMT training.

Let's assume you are insane enough to reduce global population to 350,000,000. How would they be distributed? (US population: 318,417,000)

No.

And I think that answer suffices.

Who decides what people are worth saving?

That's certainly the most disgusting thing I've read all day. Because some is poor, starving, or has a disease, they're pigs not worth saving? Try thinking that one over again. Although, based on the comment you made following that, I doubt that the above was an misunderstanding on my end.

The entire thing was a misunderstanding. I was irritated with the "95% of people are pigs and should die" statement. Obviously the 5% had some special undefined qualities, so I suggested that the 5% must also be healthy and all, just to emphasize how "disgusting" it is to state that 95% of humanity is worthless.

In other words, it is intentionally disgusting because the original post was disgusting. Rather than rage at it, I added to it. Exaggerated sarcasm. Similar to Terry's post but with more effort. You should have deduced that from the second post. You thought I was being serious when I used the words "optimal reproduction levels?"
