The suits are seeking monetary damages on behalf of potentially millions of users of the three companies.
Cool! I'm a user of google and facebook, so if they win, I'll get some mone... oh, wait...
I simply don't understand how this idiotic flood of lawsuits from everyone suing everyone else is still allowed. I mean, has anyone stopped to think of how much time and money is wasted on stupid cases? Not that this subject isn't important but come on, seeking monetary damages on behalf of the users?! WTF?!
There are many instances of one species wiping another out of existence.
Causing the situation by means of their actions and not doing anything (or very little) about it?
No, of course not, but the specific situations you mentioned are man-driven. Besides, no species become extinct in those situations any more than, for example, the Iberian Wolf became extinct; they disappeared from southern Portugal and Spain but they're not extinct.
We are natural, indeed. Unless someone else created us (I don't believe in a god or a "superior entity", btw).
So we're either a glitch in Nature's seemingly perfect system, or a far technologically superior alien race made us.
That's actually a thought that crossed my mind a few times. Not that I give it any credibility or much thought at all but sometimes I imagine that we're nothing but tiny little particles in someone else's universe. Kind of like the galaxy in MIB 1
Again, as I said in the comment I replied to a few minutes ago, those are not naturally occurring situations, those are situations created by man.
Rats didn't swim to easter island and cats were introduced in some regions by humans, too - not to mention that the latter are a species created by humans.
Look folks, it's quite simple: species don't anihilate each other just like that, because it would disrupt the whole ecosystem around them. This isn't rocket science and even farmers (no disrespect meant, it's just that farmers are not biologists, just as biologists wouldn't know how to grow corn) know what happens when some animal species gets wiped out from a region. The effects can be invisible or can be catastrophic. And Nature doesn't "let" such things happen just like that. The whole system is "built" on a very delicate balance.
Enough babling, I think I made my point.
Although logically correct, I don't think your arguments are valid, because you are mentioning situations that do not occur naturally in nature - they are created by man.
Actually, Bananatree3 is right: we are the only species that destroy our own world and lead other species to extinction.
What you are talking about is natural selection, something that occurs naturally; what Bananatree3 was talking about is doing it on purpose, in a unnatural way.
