RE: God is about to punish humanity again!
Yeah, no. I honestly can't see anything you said happening, especially if we come back the the extinction of the species you mentioned before.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: God is about to punish humanity again!
Volcanoes have been erupting on earth for billions of years. They are natural geological occurrences.
We have a pretty good idea on how they work. No imaginary gods are required for volcano eruption.

So, which god are you trying to prove caused a natural occurrence ?
I can cause a natural occurrence. I just snapped my fingers and something natural somewhere just happened.
See how easy that is.

It has happened before, and it will happen again.
Just because you can't see something happening doesn't mean it can't happen (or that it can, for that matter). It only means that you can't see it happening. So that says something about you. Not about the subject of the discussion. Cool

I didn't say the species was about to go extinct as a result of this natural disaster, I said the weaker specimens of this species, the ones who can't afford enough food, the poor, would be culled. Leaving only the ones who can afford enough food. The rich. There's your natural selection, your survival of the fittest, your evolution. It would fit straight into the 'Origin of species'.

RE: God is about to punish humanity again!
Extinction events are nothing new to this planet. There is a reason that 99% of life does not any longer exist. Volcanic events, giant asteroids, geological events and all kinds of things. So to think we are immune to that as a species would be ignorant and naive considering the amount of science that we now understand.

I think it's an interesting topic. Thankfully due to technology I don't think that surviving as a species would be an issue (we'll probably be colonizing mars and the moon before then) but your idea of how it will affect those who are unfortunate enough to be in dire circumstances does indeed bring up an interesting point.

If things get bad, the amount of money you have is moot, unless you plan on eating it.

I'm pretty sure that natural selection is the progressive adaptation tending toward positive traits within a community. Not the culling of poor people.

RE: God is about to punish humanity again!
FYI: there have been other bottlenecks in the existence of homo as a genus. Near-extinctions. Close calls:
in 1815 Mount Tambora (Sumbawa) erupted and crashed crops in Europe and America for years.
The 'little ice age' of the beginning of the 17th century probably was the result of another such massive volcanic eruption in the 'Ring of Fire' on the other side of the world. But Wolf Blitzer and Christiane Amanpour weren't "on the ground" to tell us about it in our neck of the woods.
The human DNA record confirms that hominids as species (Neandertals and Denisovans too) went through the eye of a needle when Mount Toba (Sumatra) erupted 72,000 years ago. Scientists say there was a bottleneck in the hominid species right then of only a few dozen individuals left! In the whole wide world!

We were very very nearly wiped out as a species right then.
So we've been living on borrowed time ever since....

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

Yellowstone park is overdue to go kaboom according to averages.

So is Katla in Iceland.

You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.
