The Roles of Humans and the Relationship between Humans and Earth

This is an open discussion that is basically about "the roles of humans" and "the relationship between humans and earth". All opinions are welcome. (as long as they are not insulting in any manner to anyone and as long as they are, preferably, centered around the main questions of the discussion)

The main questions (which are to be discussed separately and with more details within the discussion) are:
1. What do you think the primary roles of humans are?
2. What do you think "the nature" of the role of humans is?
3. "Humans have to seek to satisfy their basic (material and immaterial) needs for survival, but this should in no way keep humans busy from doing their role, or roles." Do you agree or disagree? Why?
4. How do you describe the nature of "sinning"?
