But if we stay: We are the universe looking at itself, knowing itself. We are the conscious in the seemingly unconscious universe. With all our treachery, our bad, we can still try to understand the bigger picture, and the more we try (it feels) the closer we get. It's worth knowing more. I want to know more.

So we all die and nature takes over and evolves on without us like it has for so long until our sun dies, and then it dies. Or, you kill us and our beloved planet and.. thus eventually leading the apes that will come after us to be asked the same question and so on and so forth till there are no animals left... the final species of sentien plant will be the last species thus ending all life as catus's know it. roflao. life must therefore be inherently evil.

Or the apes on planet KOI-314c beat us to the punch. Cuz that place looks cooler than here, and it's bigger. Big Grin

Because our species is a going concern, at least for the moment.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: Give me one good reason why the human race should continue
Well, I am a human, so I'd consider that a pretty good reason. If you don't find that particularly compelling, consider this; We are the only species which we have observed that has been able to unlock the secrets of the universe as we have. Nothing else even comes close. If your point is "We are bad for the planet" or whatever, there are bigger things out there than planet Earth - and no other species has the foreseeable potential of exploring anything outside of our planet. We may one day find a way to travel an near light speed. Unlikely, yes, but it isn't completely inconceivable. You cannot say that about orangutans, or dolphins (despite what the Adams would have us believe). Big Grin

1. being that killing the human race is inherently evil
2. no matter all the bad humanity has done there are enough people to balance that out overly
3. killing humans means you to unless you are to be the last evil ever
4. lastly the humans are the only ones that can do ultimate god like deflect comits {noty right at this point} or bigger picture stuff. at all.

There is no evidence for your first premise.
The other three are incomprehensible.
