Here is the quote I was referring to and you could not find. Here you reference how "other animals" have no problem controlling their populations. To which I challenged you to give me one example of an animal--meaning other than homo sapiens--that did so. You gave me an example alright--Native Americans.

Sorry, I missed the point of your question. The key word I missed was "other". Thanks for clarifying.

Frecs, I'm not saying that any other animal is consciously deciding not to have babies or to kill their own babies or to abort their own babies. I'm saying that other animals babies die naturally if there is not enough food to support them.

Going back to the origin of this thread, humans have the ability to create food at will through agriculture. Wherever, and whenever we want (pretty much). There is no shortage of food on the planet right now. Starvation is a distribution and political problem if anything.

Let me ask you this...why has the population growth of the US slowed just recently? and do you think it's a good thing that it did?

Chris
