7 billion? Holy moly... enough is enough people.
liberallarry, no doubt the pious will stomp all over you for lack of faith, etc.
For my part, I don't think God will bless our blindness and folly for only
obeying some of His precepts (in this case, "be fruitful and multiply").
The problem is not the number of people but how resources are managed and
distributed. What's sick is the privileged rich's wasteful and unappreciative
attitude towards this planet and its resources when millions (if not billions)
live on a dollar a day or less.
Over population has caused a noticeable decline in the quality of life, in this
country, over the last 30 years. I feel sorry for the children born today who
will faced increased scarcity of our natural resources in the future. An ounce
of population control today would reap huge benefits for them in the future.
