Would the world be a better place without humans?

Humans are the largest animals on the planet to have a population of at least 7 billion — but they’re not the only ones. In fact there are species in the world with a greater population than that.
Chickens 18.6 billion
Ants 10 billion billion
Mice 210 billion
Bacteria 4 quadrillion quadrillion (1 quadrillion = 1015  – a million billion)
Birds 200-400 billion
Cattle 1.4 billion
Sheep 1.1 billion
Insects Insects – 10 quintillion (1021 – 10 billion billion)
I realise that whilst humans are only one species that fall under the “mammal” category whilst the Bacteria, Birds and Insects are a whole animal group so therefore there will instantly be more of them, however as the Mice and Chickens show, there are species with a population greater than that of humans and these other species do not try to ruin the planet.
About 3% of the planet is urbanised, i.e. populated by humans and concrete whilst the other 97% is filled with fish, birds, insects, trees, plants and everything else. So how is it possible that 3%… just one species has caused climate change, multiple wars, caused other species to become extinct… what good have we done for this planet? None, anything we have done is to benefit ourselves… and even worse… to benefit 1% of people.
If a human was to battle against a lion, or an elephant for example or even a cobra… it would win right, because it can use a gun or a knife. But, take that away and it has no chance. Our only adaptation that puts us above the rest of our species is our brain, and that’s it. There are animals out there that have developed craaazy adaptations to survive. For example the Horned Lizard can squirt blood from its eyes to scare away predators. A treehopper has an ant on the outside for protection… not a real one though:

Apart from ants and chimps.. supposedly we are also the only humans to go to war with each other.  However even chimps and ants only target one individual unlike us. We are also the only species that is homophobic (hundreds of species have shown to practise homosexuality), hence homophobia is unnatural. Racism and Sexism is also another quality we acquire that no other animals do.
 When i started writing this post there were 7,290,213,735 (7.29 billion) people in this world and when i finished there were 7,290,444, 329; so thats an increase of over 200,000 people with an uncertainty of a few million. There is an even greater uncertainty of other species however there are estimates.
SO my point.. our population is increasing very rapidly however we should be smart enough to let it grow whilst not taking advantage of the planet, we should be smart enough to know how to control this population growth, China did it, their population is estimated to drop below a billion in the next century. There are numerous ways of population control, my favourite: education. Educating people about birth control. War isn’t a way to control population. There should be no reason that is good enough to kill millions of people each year. NO REASON AT ALL!! Cancer does that on its own. It doesn’t need countries like America going to war in poorer countries in an attempt to gain more power. It is a thirst for money and power. GREED. Unlikely every other species, the 1% with the most power are in it for themselves. the 99% have the power to equal out the playing field. Every other species on the planet groups together to provide for the colony. Why can’t we do that too?
We’re only damaging the planet and everything that resides in it, would the world be a better place without us? I think so. So it’s time we started caring and stopped being greedy and selfish. At this rate we only have a few more centuries to live.
Hippie rant over.. lol

    "Maybe cheating in a relationship isn't the worst thing you could do, maybe it's just human nature?"

    Remember when you were a child, and your parents would tell you you're not allowed to eat sweets, or make a mess in your bedroom, and you'd do the complete opposite and crave it even more just because you're not allowed? Or if you're on a diet, you know you're not allowed cake or carbs, but simply because you know you're not allowed it, you want it even more? Well surely the same applies in relationships?
    Firstly, I want to start by saying we're not perfect, but perfection is something we should strive towards. Honesty is the best policy.
    A friend of mine is genuinely one of the loveliest people I know, with the best heart and the best intentions and I don't want to show him in a negative light whatsoever, simply provide you with an alternative idea. I've known him for a few years, however we only started speaking properly about a year ago. We both found each other attractive, blah blah blah, so we decided to book a hotel room. He ignored me for a few days, so obviously something was wrong, then he told me there's another girl he loves (obviously I didn't know this before), as they weren't together. I didn't think much of it, actually I was extremely envious of this girl, and that she has someone in her life that is so dedicated and faithful. A few months later, conversation escalated, and we once again decided to go hotel, and a few days beforehand he once again cancelled. This time I was pretty angry and upset, because he'd lead me on and then cancelled. Obviously we're not together but I'm my own person too at the end of the day and don't want to be lead on.
    Another few months later we started talking, innocent conversation about gym, films etc (this time via dm on twitter as I deleted his number and vice versa, I assume), and I had calmed down over the previous incident, he was a genuinely lovely person and I admire the faithfulness to his yet to be girlfriend, I hope I find someone like that in the future. But anyway, we decided to have a gym session together, as we live near each other we went to the park, and for the majority of it, it was a really good session, fun, productive (my legs KILLED the following day) but there was sexual tension, especially towards the end. My back was super sore from gym the previous day and he offered a massage, it was rubbish and he didn't get very far unfortunately as he was starting to give in, and couldn't resist the attraction any longer. Not a lot happened as I stopped him, before it escalated too far. I'd hate for my future husband to cheat on me, so I could only give this couple the same respect (they were together a few months at this point). The following day he thanked me, and was grateful for stopping him.
    The point of this example is, I know my friend loves his girlfriend very much but none of us are perfect and we all give in to temptation now and again. Many males/females cheat because they have a craving, and a hoe gets in the way that has no respect for the relationship and only wants his/ her needs fulfilled, few will have a conscience and stop anything

    Alternatively, on a separate occasion I was speaking to another friend about this topic. He told me that he's seen a sidechick/man save many relationships. His reasons were that if you have an argument with your partner, instead of ending the relationship, you go to see a sidechick/man, relax, then go back to your partner happy and proceed as normal. I disagree with his reasoning however I see the point behind it.
    As long as you don't make a habit out of temptation, and are honest... maybe we're too extreme when it comes to cheating? I disagree with cheating, and don't condone it, however this is just a thought. Everyone get's bored of everything eventually if you get too high a dose, it's just a matter of balance.
