    Every major problem we have today tracks hand in hand with the population curve. You don’t get credit for putting out the fire, when you are throwing kerosene on it with your Iron Age manic obsession with all things sexual. You don’t get credit when you force those least able to have big families to do so, under threat of eternal torment if they think critically and use contraception. You don’t get credit when you fight all attempts at the UN and individual nations, in an attempt to deny the use of contraception to those who need it most. You don’t get credit when you are part of the problem and you won’t admit it.

    It took hundreds of thousands of years for mankind to grow to the 2.5 billion people on the earth when I was born. In my lifetime alone, the number has almost tripled, expanding to over 7 billion. This is not sustainable. We are adding over 70 million people every year. Like a virus eating the nutrients in a petri dish, we are consuming our resources faster than they can be replenished, and if the trend continues we will die in our own poisons – just like the viruses in the petri dish. Our only hope will be for someone like Elon Musk to get our genes to another petri dish, (hopefully being selective to avoid Iron Age genes, if that is possible!).
