Mother Nature

I used that title as I reckon nature provides above and beyond and yet some find ways of being critical of it.

I posed a question on another thread which I have put here to see if anyone can enlighten me a bit.it relates to a friend I often argue with.

"During our conversations, he often states that mass starvations occurred due to nature, they just happen anyway. I on the other hand think nature provides in abundance and any mass starvation of humans or animals occur due to other human interference , so can anyone find examples of mass starvation that have no human interference connected to them? maybe sometimes when some pitfall has happened but I cannot find an example of nature failing in the way he is trying to suggest.

If those multitude of penguins in the inhospitable wastes of the polar regions can march thousands of miles to feed themselves and their offspring, then what to say of humans in much better regions?"

I think the natural droughts of vast areas in Africa hurt or kill 1000s upon thousands.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru.

I know what you mean.
That's why I actually said vast areas. Man, it would
be hard starving, no water, a family, a baby (always seems to be a baby!),
cracked, hot earth to go where?
Where you think there might be water. Where's the shade!
Very sad situation to be born into!

Maybe many have been pushed into those situations due to say habitat destruction? I reckon people would normally cluster round lakes,seas and along rivers also nomadic tribes who would have followed herds for food and liquid,perhaps that has been disrupted now.Why do we not see mass starvation of penguins in the most inhospitable places,unless some pitfall occurs.Even with our overfishing many seem to cope well

How strange that I just came across this thread and I had posted something very relevant on another topic with you POD ..
It was about how as humans we mostly don't "get it"... Survival I mean , and how mother nature needs no intervention from man in order to survive, neither do animals in the wild ... It's just "man" that is gormless and has no clue ....!!!
