Interesting thread. Just spent a good 20 mins reading through, and I have to say, both arguments have some substantial advocates.
I'm still a noob here, but overpopulation and overbreeding is one of my favorite topics, mostly because I have made the desicion to not breed.
What I find facinating is, why humans continue to breed even though we live in an age when it can controlled? I know that some people must produce
offspring to keep the species alive, but why do we as a species produce offspring in areas where the chance of survival is almost zero? (Third World
countries, poverty stricken inner cities).
And why do some people, even go on to produce ridiculous amounts of offspring, when they are clearly not needed? (Sighting the article above and in
referance to the Dugger's, or whatever the name is of that obcenely large family).
Just my thoughts and observations. I'm really enjoying this thread, and will continue to come back for some more insights!
