I fully agree, i have always wondered if some day a big hand is gonna come out of the sky, see its marbles are just too dusty with germs called humans will use a scoop to clean up the mess we have created. We are nothing but a virus that keeps spreading and spreading. For many in 3rd world countries, population growth minus the education is power and a way to create and control wealth. We have destroyed the planet for future generations, for good.

let's start with the southern hemisphere. The people there can't seem to stop having kids there knowing full well they can't afford them.

ChrisJ1968, you are an idiot. He's not saying we should kill people. We should just limit population growth and I sort of agree with him.

Ban surrogacy, if you can't have children naturally the first thing you should be thinking of is adoption. I think it's almost inhumane to go to these enormous lengths to create children when there are so many children out there that need parents.

Secondly, make all birth control free and legalize abortion everywhere.

At least I'm contributing by being gay!


most countries that have birth control and abortions are already below population replacement levels. It's the poor countries who can't seem to keep their pants on.

any country above 2.1 is above replacement level and is a cancer on the world

And you are gay.



Okay, I take it back.


lol. classic

but seriously. stop giving money to Africa. Stop giving them immunizations or giving out HIV meds like candy. Starvation and disease is the reward a people earn when they populate without the means of taking care of their own.

Reminds me of the scene from the matrix where Smith tells Morpheus that he considers humans a virus, as all other living things work in a equilibrium. Where as mankind, like a virus consumes and destroys, i have to say when he said it i did agree, there has not been many human civilizations that have attempted to live in equilibrium, the only one i know off the top of my head is the american Indians.

Not sure if serious? You might want to consider a shot to the head at some point.

i'm deadly serious. Why do we keep trying to feed starving African kids when their lives only amount to **** at best anyway? They live in squalor in shanty towns or **** huts. They are plagued by every manor of disease and they bread like rabbits. Look at the birth rate list. All the intelligent countries have rates far below replacement levels where as a **** hole like Niger as 7.5 children per woman. Jesus should have said "Blessed are the ignorant, starving poor, for they shall inherit the earth" because smart people aren't having kids.

I mean countries where people have a chance to make something of themselves. Where parents, for the most part, have children responsibly. Where there is education, high literacy, and regular access to sanitation. If that's what you mean by petro/nuclear military industrial complex.. then yes... That makes the petro/nuclear military industrial complex freaking awesome in my eyes.

"Intelligent countries"? Developed countries, more likely. They don't have the same education as us, the same rights, quality of life and so on. We spent centuries in Europe (which is where you come from, unfortunately) in dark ages. We died of plague, starvation, war and ignorance due to the Church. Guess why there are still people in Europe (people that populated modern day America)? Oh right, they squeezed out so many babies as they possibly could because the mortality rate was so incredibly high.

I don't think we should necessarily "feed them", but I think it's our responsibility--since we have developed a certain type of society--to support them and try to get them on their feet.

Oh and I do not care for one second what "Jesus" may have said. He was just like the people you are expressing your dislike for; poor, starving and married to a prostitute. Ah, right, and he was Jewish, don't know why Christians got that confused.

Have you ever looked at an atlas? Moronic statement.

Population growth is happening across the board, except maybe in places like China.
I would say that a fair amount of the animals native to the USA would think that it is over populated with humans.

lol. for some reason I always saw Africa as being mostly below the equator. my point still stands. most countries south of north America and Europe are general crap with a higher than replacement level of births and according to this guy are plagues on the earth.

P.S. population growth is 'NOT' happening across the board.

http://en.wikipedia...._fertility_rate

look at the data. Any country that has a higher than 2.1 birth rate has a higher than replacement level of births. Look at the countries with the highest. It's all Africa.

Again it seems you have missed his point though. We are all a plague on the earth, not just the ones from poor countries. Also the poorer nations probably have less impact on the planet than developed ones.
