Voluntary Human Extinction  
Really - I just don't get it. Do these people honestly hate humanity that much?

I don't have a problem with their pessimism about the current heading set by humanity - I don't think that's arguable by any intelligent person. I have a problem with their answers to the following questions -

Don't humans have a place in Nature?
Are religions to blame for human overpopulation?
Why not move excess human population to colonies on other planets?
If we spread life to other planets, wouldn't there be more chance for it to survive?
Will human extinction solve all of Earth's problems? (specifically, not pressing the button has no test at all, and the "yes" page is far too rosy on the one hand, and far too apocalyptic on the other)

I don't think there is a single argument they're making that the simplicity or deep ecology movements are not making better. And since I agree with them about everything except the voluntary extinction of the human race, I think they're mostly dicks.
