Humans are not “Artificial”

In response to the anti-human who attacked Discovery Channel headquarters, I would like to make a simple point.

Man Made does not mean Not Natural.

Humans are as much a part of nature as everything not human. It is simply our nature to adapt our environments to suit our purposes. Many animals do this. The steppes of the Serengety are kept clear of forest by the destructive nature of elephants. Beavers cause widespread changes in environments upstream of their dams and the only real difference between a beaver dam and Hoover Dam is that we do it so much better than they do. Likewise termite mounds and skyscrapers.

It is our nature to build. It is the anti-humans who are unnatural. No other subset of a species tries to actively destroy it’s own kind.
