And the famous command “Go forth and multiply”
Wrong again, Write4U. The fertility in Europe started to decline in the 19th century. In those days probably everybody was a Christian.
Are you confusing decline in growth with decline in population? Even if we achieve a growth rate of .5% the population will double in 140 years (two generations). Any steady growth will produce a doubling effect. Only the time this will take is affected, not the result. As long as babies are born and we enable the population to live longer, we must deal with the result of exponential growth. I see this as the single most important and pressing issue when discussing quality of life for all. What is “good” for people is bad for the eventual consequence of any resultant growth.
