Slow it down, Son

October 2007

Slow it down, Son:

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

And God blessed them. And God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth. (Genesis 1:27–28)

Earth filled: CHECK
Earth subdued: CHECK
Dominion established: CHECK

Maybe it's time to stop with the being fruitful and multiplying?

I'd agree but then seeing we + most of the first world already have a negative growth rate, it's probably not us you need to convince, but the Chinese, Indians, Africans, south Americans and other middle eastern and Asian people.

Then you probably need to convince every one that we don't need as many cool toys as companies would like us to have, and that we don't need to individually multiply in size.
