i did. but since you have a lovely habit of starting threads with no original thought of your own and never returning, it seems a bit like spam.

so, what do you think?

We can start by thinking about the people who have died because of the ban on DDT.


What do you think?

Let's say DDT would have done what it was designed to do, do you believe in the eradication of mosquitoes?

What is important to you?

A human life or a bug that has killed millions of people?

A forum user is obliged to provide some kind of original content with an initial post. If you're too lazy to, or don't care, don't bother posting.

That's very simple reasoning, Iron Horse. Maybe consider the effects of the loss of such an abundant creature

Well I knew you wouldn't actually answer the question, you never do... still waiting on some answers in the GOP thread.

But here's the reason I asked the question:

I remember once in a thread about the environment you said we shouldn't worry because "the earth is in good hands" and that God was in control.

So why should humans intervene and wipe out a bug that God created, but not do anything about the impact they've done on the Earth?

We should ignore everything we haven't done, smoke our cigarettes, and read our Bibles.

If I remember what I said correctly, I think I mentioned that my family does recycle the glass and other materials we use. We also grow vegetables and keep several farm animals. We process and preserve much of what we raise for our food supply.

The scriptures teach that we are to be good stewards of God's creation.


Back to the topic:
THE DDT BAN TURNS 30 � Millions Dead of Malaria Because of Ban, More Deaths Likely > Health Issues > ACSH


From the link:
"Around the time of the DDT ban, Dr. Charles Wurster, chief scientist for the Environmental Defense Fund, may have revealed how some environmentalists really feel about human beings when he was asked if people might die as a result of the DDT ban: "Probably...so what? People are the causes of all the problems; we have too many of them. We need to get rid of some of them, and this is as good a way as any." [UPDATE: Wurster later denied ever having made the statement, saying it was misreported by another EPA expert.]"
