Is that just an excuse for us intervening into their world for our benefit? In most cases everything in nature has a beter chance of survival without man. Man is the most distructive species on earth. I can't think of one problem that exist in the world that wasn't caused by man himself.
that's quite an accomplishment. you managed to make a statement that is entirely false.
since we are in a beekeeping section, i'll stick to the beekeeping portion of your statement.
Is that just an excuse for us intervening into their world for our benefit?
yes. assuming you believe your above statement, you should not be keeping bees. it would not be for their benefit. since you choose to keep them, it must be for your benefit. if this is true, you are responsible for caring for them.
it is the same with anything we have. dogs, cats, horses. i happen to have horses. if they were in the wild, they would not be immunized, have their feet tended to, or be wormed. because i keep them, i care for them. because i care for them, they have every chance of living into their late 20's or early 30's with good health. that would be a very rare thing in the wild.
would you apply to evil man the same "survival of the fittest" theory that you apply to your livestock? that we should not feed, provide clean water, immunize, etc. those who are in need? we could seriously reduce evil man by simply refusing to care for those who can not/will not care for themselves. how about defective or ill children in 1st world societies. what a drain on resources! oops...got off the bee thing....sorry. just that the last was an interesting thought.
