This is not thieism.We are not told by our god to go forth and propogate.
12 years and we have now reached 7 billion up from 6. 2045 most probably 9 billion.
As the population increases so dramatically there is more competition of scarce resources which will present as war revolution and quite possibly genocidal consequence.
As the population increases it will be subject to a more fragile demographic which places large numbers of peoples in hazard when any natural occurance such as hurricane typhoon or drought occurs.
As the population inreases much as we may personally care to recycle and do things of a sustainable manner(getting off the grid) our presence alone on this planet produces environmental harm which will make the future untenable.
There is no technological solution, eventually the population will stablize. Hard to say exactly when but maybe about 12 billion or so.
Problem being, with 12 billion oe so, the human population will have such a hard sustainance existance in a largly poluted environment with little in the way of unowned space, berift with war and territorial agression as each nation tries to feed its peoples, mass deaths and such occuring of such frequency...dharma will be quite quite hard to engage in.
Think not..you are quite deluded.
Forget your biological imperative and your lonliness. It's great to teach and have a householders life but one may be had with one child as well as two or four or more.
Forced sterilizations of course not. Planned parenthood and birth control....yes by all means.
Billions will die before their time if we keep going this way. And those that live their standard of living in many cases will not be lives worth living.
Well some may say...well Look at those living that way right now.
Correct and true but the presence of a fault in a thing does not mean that thing is entirely faulted.
WE cannot stop trying to be good and do good things as occasionally we may do bad things...the logic is faulted that proposes that. a form of nihilism it is.
WE must all do what we can
in this specific work to support planned parenting, not accidental or thought devine inspiration of parenthood.
There are just to many of us.
