"Stone Age Art, and Some Extinct Species."

"Stone Age Art, and Some Extinct Species."
Dear Readers,
Today's article will be one of the last posts for 2012.
So, I shall be taking a long writing break after the Holidays.
Christmas is coming soon, the celebration of Jesus Christ birth, our Savior.
I love the Christmas Spirit!
Anyway, I should be getting ready for my journey back home to New York, for my dear family gathering reunion in the Spring of 2013, if that is God's will.
Packing things in my suitcases will be a memorable challenge for me, since I still suffer from health issues such as asthma, allergy, post traumatic syndrome (PTS), a painful overweight, swelling limbs, so on and so forth. Please, help me God!
I may need some kind of help. I think I am not able to travel alone the way I used to...
Thank you for lingering with me for a while, dear readers!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 TO EACH and EVERYONE!
Now, I'll post today's article.

The world population has dramatically increased since the last Stone Age. It is the total number of living humans on Earth. As of today, it is estimated to number over 7 Billion by the United States Census Bureau. The world population has experimented continuous growth. The global population expected to reach about 10.5 Billion by 2050, and grow even larger over the passing years. Some analysts have questioned and concerned the sustainability of further world population growth, citing the growing pressures on the natural environment, and global food supplies which could become a shortage of food in the future, or even nothing to eat at all for so many eventually hungry humans.
Would they eventually become cannibals? I wonder...
I'll be dead by then. Thanks God!
The engineering of our planet Earth was engraved with the most perfect species conceived, God's Almighty creations. Yet many of them perished long ago, and were extinct forever from the face of the Earth. I wonder why...
I think modern inhabitants -human beings- encrouched on the rights of other living species by over hunting and over taking their natural habitats have got a lot to do with that. Therefore, the most vulnerable ones encountered being wiped out and sent to oblivion.
Who are the worst predators in the world? I wonder...
This article enfolds a fable with a moral enlightenment: EXTINCTION IS FOREVER. PLEASE, PROTECT OUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT THROUGH CONSERVATION.
Many species have the status of endangered, but many folks still don't care about them. One day, there will be nothing left to eat, if human overpopulations keep on growing by the Billions. I won't be alive at the time when those events happen.
However, I am still concern -as a good Christian- for the future generations to come.
I pray to God to reach out for a Brotherhood of Christians in Action to save the world.

"SOME EXTINCT SPECIES."
Yes! I feel sad for the extinct species...
Columbian Mammoth, Extinct Species.
Woolly Mammoth, Extinct Species.
Mammoth Fossil at a Natural Science Museum. Extinct Species.
Most populations of the woolly mammoth in North America and Eurasia died out around the time of the last glacial retreat, as part of a mass extinction of megafauna in northern Eurasia and the Americas (North, Central and South). Until recently, the last woolly mammoths were generally assumed to have vanished from Europe and Southern Siberia about 12,000 years ago, but new findings show that some of them were still present there about 10,000 years ago.
However, the Wrangel Island is an island in the Arctic Ocean with a severe polar climate. This remote Arctic island is believed to be the final place on Earth to support woolly mammoths as an isolated population until their extinction about 2,000 B.C., making them the most recent surviving population known to science.
A combination of late climate change (warming), and the presence of paleo-human hunters probably hastened their extinction.

The thylacine, an alpha predator marsupial, commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger, was a native to continental Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea. He was an amazing and unique animal. It is thought to become extinct in the 20th Century. Intensive human hunting is generally blamed for its extinction, but other contributing factors may have been encroachment into its habitat. The importance of life until its gone, the loss of species is truly a criminal act on a grand scale. We -humans- could be next...
The last Tasmanian Tiger, Thylacine, died at the Hobart Zoo, Tasmania in 1936.
I keep wondering if weapons kill animals, they can also kill humans and destroy the whole world as well. Don't you think it is about time to change the world for a better world!!
HAVE A BLESSED TIME!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR READING MY POSTS!
