You seem like a good girl
Your man is very lucky to have you.Now if rest of us guys WHO WANT A FAMILY AND A KID let's pray we can meet that "special one".

But back to the topic, can anyone really come up with a proposed idea to fix this problem?

Well aside from my previous suggestion of women marrying into my hubby's family tree, we could try getting women to marry and have kids earlier in life. But then it would cause some to cry sexism if they were told to have kids sooner to increase the chances of males being born. I'm sure some would see it as an attempt to get women back in the kitchen and out of the workplace, so that wouldn't work... I'm sure I will have a brilliant idea just as I fall asleep, and then instantly forget it of course, but as of now I'm coming up blank..

I wonder if scientist can make a way to make it born as a boy

Anything could be possible these days.

And to my own suggestion, wouldn't that me neat?
For those parents that wanted a boy or a girl

I'm sure they probably can since they can tell which sperm carry an X and which ones carry a Y chromosome. And we have in vitro, so it would be fairly simple I would think to make sure only male embryo's were implanted. But there will be many people who will fight against it.. There are quite a few people out there who are worried about "designer children" and this would be a step down the path of parents choosing what traits their children have prior to conception.

Less men being born is a problem for me as a guy how?

and particularly if a larger percentage of them are Gay from all the estrogen?

Men are always in the more difficult position if your single... AND cause most of the violent and other problems and compete for good jobs the most too...

so, this would be a good thing... less guys around...

I hope that men do go to 50% of births and that half are born Gay

That's my kind of world to live in

lots of art and music, great clothes, no problem meeting women... no major competition for many jobs women might not want to do and good pay for doing them because they need to be done...

Keep pissing those birth control pills into the water supplies Girls, I dig this situation.

with all due respect, lunacy it is...



Thanks for the respect
Not sure what else to say. Or maybe I do...

Our technology is advancing exponentially. Think about comparing 80s computing power to the current
This exponential growth is not unique to computing power though. Same applies to medicine. Actually pick any field in science, medicine, technology... Now compare say 1900 to current 2008. Impressive no? Exponential growth in all these fields. In one century.

Now according to this article it will be the around the year 4000 (I think) when the decline of male births equals 100% (if it keeps the same rate).

That is 20 centuries right? If you don't think we will achieve what I said we would in 20 centuries then you haven't been paying much attention

Yes, i presume your right. SO, there goes that idea. When i guess where back to square one and coming up with an idea to the solution.

Are you serious. i mean it would be fun. But, in the long-term it would be threat to mankind.It's like us enjoying our gas and driving around, even though were killing our planet and ourselves at the same time.

A threat how?

Not unless it became like 10-1 odds,

Nothing remotely like that actually is in evidence at this time

6 Billion and growing, I agree with those that say there is plenty of room handled right still, but none the less, we have reached cockroach proportions almost in terms of survivability

No disease will eliminate us, nothing short of a full scale end of world scenario...

and in actuality as we expand now into other environments, even other worlds as a real possibility this next century... a small gap in M - F ratio an only make things more pleasant for all...

We got to 6 Billion, this Century!!!

This is nothing to fear

Fascinating that i would come across this thread right after watching this documentry. www.cbc.ca...

I don't know, with the number of diseases, infections, etc. that are becoming drug-resistant it is entirely possible that one day one of them will mutate into something that will wipe out a significant portion of Earth's population. And with the way natural disasters have been getting stronger I think it's only a matter of time before one of those wipes out a significant portion of the population as well. We may not have to wait for a man-made disaster for half the population or more to be wiped out. Scary thought, that.

First, I have to say your post made me laugh. Second, do you know where one might find more of the documentary than what I assume was just a preview?

The operative word is HALF the population

I would have no numbers on this, but given our attempts to eradicate simple insects like roaches or ants and the methods we use.

It would be extremely unlikely that we could, given genetic diversity even if we tried in the face of human resourcefulness as well ... actually eliminate mankind from the planet

It would take allot worse than a germ, I have seen things that claim, even our best bio weapons designed for the job... couldn't be 100% effective as a humanacide, given 6 Billion plus people

so, a slightly higher percentage of females than male

considering... one, (okay very tired) man could in theory impregnate 100 women

I just can't see the actual threat

I'm one guy I have Millions of sperm!

given modern science, I myself could take care of a small city if things go badly (via test tube of course i'm not a lunatic)

Hmm.. Says it's unavailable.. The one I watched was only 2 minutes long. It's listed a few videos down from the one you linked to. May have to wait till tomorrow and then try it.

Edit to add the following rather than doing a separate post:

I was being optimistic I think. I would say that if a virus/infection/etc. were to evolve to the point that no drug we have, or will have at that time, could stop it or slow it it would take out a lot more than half the population simply because of how mobile people are. One infected person can conceivably infect thousands of others with one trip to the store, let alone the rate at which people fly. A "super-bug" if you will could potentially be spread around the world before we even knew what was happening.

In theory he could, in practice it's unlikely what with the female cycle and other factors (diet, health of the male as well as the females, any drugs that may be in their systems, etc.). It would at least take quite awhile for all 100 to become pregnant.

The threat is highly unlikely to happen in our lifetimes, so I suppose it's not really anything to worry about at the moment. But what happens if the last males are unable, for whatever reason, to make any sperm carrying the Y chromosome that are also capable of fertilizing an egg? Long shot scenario, I know. But hey, this is a conspiracy site!

Also, most younger men now have lower sperm count or Testicular cancer.


What? Please provide a source for this statement.

Girls can't be pregnant if they wanted/have to. Watch the video! This is the biggest crisis to man besides global warming.Well, actually more important then global warming
