Strictly hypothetical of course--what would YOU do if you happened to come across or had access to a nuclear bomb that had the potential to wipe out all of planet Earth? Nobody can stop you and you know everything you need to do in order to set it off. Would you end humanity? Why/why not?

I don't think that would do it, but yeah I think at our current state we're a net minus to the planet.. I think given another few hundred years we will find a way to wipe ourselves out though. Too many ways, too many people with a red button in front of them.

no, why?

anything that survived would almost certainly die after suffering through decades of a nuclear winter, the radioactive footprint we'd leave behind, and extreme heat. and even though we're polluting the planet to an incomprehensible measure, it's still better than flat out nuking everything

we're gross. but live or die, in this equation, it wouldn't prevent us from doing more harm than good, because it's hugely harmful

Why would I do that? Makes no sense.

You'd killing pretty much everything, because you feel bad?
Oh, I had a bad day, I better go nuke Earth..

No, I'm not a murderer of children or adults. I do not take pleasure in harming others.

Yes.. I definitely would. This world is corrupted by greed and commercialism. I can't stand it. 90% of the real-life people I come across are scammers, and I'm tired of the number one driving force of life being money.

No. I don't blame the world for my problems. If I ever get to the point where I had enough I'd just off myself. leave everyone else alone.

It isn't my place to end others' lives. Everyone deserves the right to dictate whether they want to live or not. That would be incredibly unfair if I killed everyone, and destroyed such a beautiful planet we're fortunate enough to be living on. I don't care how ****ty my life might seem sometimes. I would never do something so selfish like that.

I'd go for it, but I'd prefer to do it in a way that would provide the least possible pain.

And the most glory for me.

No... Humans are not the only living things here...

And although we feel like we're important and cause destruction to this planet, let's remember on the Universe scale, we're pretty much nothing and have no impact on the rest of the Universe...

Even though life itself has no meaning, and whether there'd be life or not wouldn't change anything, I'm not suicidal nor selfish.
