Quinn Quote Saturday

In fact, the real gods of the world--if there are any--are competent gods. They created a world that functions perfectly, without divine oversight or intervention. If we don't curb our population growth, the built-in processes of the world will take care of it. If we continue to attack them as vigorously as we are right now, the ecological systems that keep us alive will eventually collapse, leaving a world that won't sustain human life at all. We'll be gone--probably along with most or all large life forms of animal life--but life will go on and start rebuilding anew, just as it's done after every mass extinction of the past."-- Daniel Quinn, Pg. 61, If They Give You Lined Paper Write Sideways
