overpopulation
    #315504 - 05/12/01 09:49 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I think people need to start dieing. theres too many people out there, most of which are idiots! TOO MUCH REPRODUCTION IS GOING ON!!! too many stupid slutty pregnant teens everywhere with their little to non- educated boyfriends holding jobs at the local McDonalds, particularly in the US, TOO many stupid stupid disgraceful mormon people having 8 children per family in high hopes of spreading their filthy religion, too little world wars going on that would really help us lower the population, too many disgusting little bratty bugar nosed kiddies running around overcrowding every fucking school in the fucking US, too many soccer moms out there hauling their precious angels around everyday, too little airborn deadly diseases that would also help lower the population..blah blah blah

i'm disgusted of our race i hope we all die soon!!!!!!!!!!!!

we will be dead soon if the fucking NASA people don't start shipping people off to mars

ok i'm done

I also agree that the world is becoming dangerously overpopulated.

We're not rebuilding after the war here.

Don't worry. Cloning will eventually solve the population problem.

In the US 90% of the people live on 10% of our turf.....
over-population per-se is not a problem....gluttony,waste, consumerism, and poor management of our time is.

By the poor management of time i mean majority of people are doing something the majority of the time to errode and degrade our natural systems and balances.

On the bright side i believe the earth to be a very good self-preserving entity. You may not think so, but you need to view large time frames, we live to much in the moment and think we are important...we are not! most anything and everything we do is completely meaningless in the big picture...good or bad, it does not matter.

It only matters in the sense of perpetuating our genes to a higher level of beings. To do this takes much time and many mistakes. Stupidity is just as important as intelligence, it weeds through all possible wrong scenarios until in the end we get them right.

The thing is we are only in the first stages of this and IMO all basically idiots so we have a long way to go.....the smartest of peoples are still oh so close to those snot nose kids it not even funny. And yes our current course could lead to some type of mass destruction, drowning ourselves in our own stupidity. If this happens, it happens because it needs to happen,the big kahuna of "YOU FUCKING IDIOTS *POOF*....TRY AGAIN".....

Next time round perhaps we get it right....this scenario can be taken 2 ways....macrocosm/microcosm.....the latter is already happening in your everyday life and death. The former is when we as people just don't get 'it' and we all gotta go, don't under-estimate the power of Gaia she can and will do this, with compassion, although it may not seem so.

There is no way other scenarios such as world domination by evil and mass destruction will play out, it just aint happnin' we work out our existance or the powers that be greater than our own will take charge....chances are we wise up...

But all this is is only relavent to this plane of existance.
Death is no more than a revolving door...you die then you are spit right back with hopefully more knowledge or stupider', like I said it does not matter which they are both important, each learning do's and don'ts....

Earth no longer? then this cycle is replaced by a new like i said this is only one plane of our existance, may seem important here and now, but trust me its not, we have many better to choose from and from what i've seen this is the bottom of the barrel so no matter what is played out it is only uphill from here.......'

I see what youre saying, but when you say "we" are you referring to life or the human race?

I hold a firm belief the human race will end soon due to self destruction and that, yes, another race of species will eventually become dominant, unless the earth will remain in the state of nature that preserved life and kept the earth in a steady cycle for so long before we, as humans, started killing more food than we need, colonizing, conquering, etc.

thats all i have to say for now.

Overpopulation will that not lead to hunger and starvation? Or will this economy be able to feed them? I dont think it will. Depletion of resources then will become seen. I think the people who see this will begin to self produce what they need. If not they will be dependent upon the eroding US economy. Food stamps anybody?

.....................................................................


As of this minute, the current world population is: 6,095,937,655
Starvation Deaths This Year: 11,456,943
Rainforests Acres Cut in 2001: 20,348,064
Species Extinctions in 2001: 74,876

In my opinion, saying the Earth will balance out the human population
by disease, storms, etc. is nothing more than wishful thinking. The amount of deaths from
these natural reactions is quickly refilled and exceeded.
I once read that the number of fatalities caused by war in the 20th century, meaning
all of WWI, WWII, etc. etc. could be replaced in only six weeks.
I do not believe the Earth will necessary solve our overpopulation
(perhaps it is trying but failing) problem, rather it is our
job.

Jen- the 'we' I'll explain later.......

Agent Cooper-I'm throwing this together hastily in a hurry....but first let me say you are correct

Here is the type of conflicting type of information you find on the web.....our future here is widely disputed from 'doom and gloom soon'... to.....No problem!....

The U.N. last year revised its year 2050 population projection to 8.9 billion, down from 9.4 billion. The change was based on the world's continuing birthrate decline and on the rapid spread of hiv infection, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.....

In 30 or 40 years the world pop. is expected to reach around 40 or 50 billion. I ask you, how can we reach this level of people and leave a smaller footprint on the Earth. Things are going to get worse before they get better, but we crawled out of the swamps there's really no reason we can't crawl out of this.

"saying the Earth will balance out the human population
by disease, storms, etc. is nothing more than wishful thinking"

Your right storms, disease (?better chance), or any current natural phenomena will do little. But as you later stated "it is our job" is more my philosophy it all depend on whom you see as your employer? Mindless job or mother earth...she shows us the indicators on what we need to do to continue, if we don't listen and start doing her footwork we will pay the price.
I also have seen a blissfull white light coming from the mouth of infinity, its my training film, incentive package, and retirement benifits all rolled into one. She showed me this via her creations as a helpfull aid in doing the great work that needs to be done.......

I agree que. We should definitely listen to the Earth
and know our place within nature.

When I see barren lands that have been clear-cut for profit, I hear the Earth say:
Curb your consumption, eliminate your systems of greed, stop exploiting
forests and waters and animals, and only breed
when
necessary
.

Just guard against the relaxed and apathetic stance of waiting for some
big solution to come along - Everything will be okay because in the cosmic
scheme of things nothing really matters, blah blah blah & when things
get really bad, the Great Mother Earth Spirit will come along and straighten everything out
so dont worry bout nothing cept rubbing these crystals I bought at the New Age store, blah blah blah.

I hear this alot within some spirtual circles. I believe this attitude
is incredibly lazy, diluted, removed, and detrimental to the great "Gaia" so many
pay lipservice to. That's all I'm saying.

Our personal actions are vastly significant.

"Our personal actions are vastly significant."

True very true.

The cross-road is drawing near...
Will our race chose the right course?...

I honestly have no idea...

Looks to me like a few of you have a little bit of a "God" complex, you mean to tell me that this mostly benevolent being we all live on dosin't hold all of our fates in her hands?.

All it would take to destroy 90%+ of the world's population, would be a massive volcanic eruption, one that would/could be able to blow enough ash into the earth's atmosphere so as to block out any sun light for 3+ years. Not to mention a number of other things that could devastate the human population.

" i'm disgusted of our race i hope we all die soon!!!!!!!!!. ".

Don't let it get to you Jenny, there's too much beauty in the world to let frustration and anger get the best of ya. and if you don't like what's goin on in the world, do somthin about it. We ain't on a one way street ya know, things can change. If we can all somehow tame our egos and learn to live in harmony with each other, and with all the other wonderful life on this earth, even the Mosquitos =) then and only then will we be ready, or close anywayz to transcending to a higher level of being.

Peace...

I say all of the inconsiderate self conserned bastards in this world (almost everyone) should stick their mouth around the exaust pipe of their car and inhale deeply.  That way the bastards can stop using up all of the earths prescious rescources and hey it might just cut down on car emission pollution :smile:
I think I am going to dedicate my life to funding abortion clinics and China and India civil wars.  Lets all burn civilization down to the ground so that mother nature can reclaim what is rightfully hers, death to all the shaved apes![exclamation]

I can see a world where this is no poverty and no war, I can also see us attacking that world because they would never expect it. :wink:

I think we need a MAJOR world war. Unfortunately, that would probably involve nuclear weapons which would be nice for population control, but not so nice on the eco-system. Out of war comes new technology, etc. Its not all bad.

I think that mankind is for the most part just begging for a real ass kicking, by forces far greater than our own. And to think that there arent any greater forces than us is just plain foolish ignorance.
