We have been heading to this point in time ever since the industrial revolution and the ever increasing abuse of our planet in order to produce ever more profit from an ever increasing population.

So whilst yes population explosion is in the mix it is also the means that we have used to service that population that we need to consider.

The tools we have used were inert (coal, oil, timber, etc) until we invented the industry to use them and so laying blame upon them is like a murderer blaming the knife that they used to kill someone.

Science and technology can do harm in the hands of the wrong people but look at the benefits - health science for one - without the immunization programs we would still be experiencing worldwide effects of smallpox, diptheria, polio, etc etc

Science and technology drive the quality of our lives, who would want to be without electricity, clean water, sewerage facilities, etc etc

Without science and technology we would still be living in the Dark Ages

Whilst the mother may have possible medical contraindications (not treatable psychiatric conditions) we also need to consider there are significant conditions that some unborn will suffer and endure a very poor quality of life if carried to term so their needs should be considered just as much as the mother.

Of course people who want a family plan for it otherwise they use contraception and those who do not have to face the consequences if it is just unprotected sex.

Take at good look at Finland the first country in Europe to promote the idea of a universal basic income to everyone irrespective of whether they are working or not.

Will be interesting to see how it works out .... and how those not working manage to fill the hours of their days ?

The reality is that we have been here many times before as science and technology have dragged us kicking and screaming into the future.

Look back when the horse and cart were replaced by mechanized vehicles and then the industrial revolution that put thousands of factory workers out of work replaced by machines, agricultural practices made the farm labourer and the horse extinct with the evolution of the tractor and mechanized food production.

There are so many examples of huge changes in the workforce over time, and we are about to go through yet another one, this time with a much larger global population.

All religions intrinsically have good intentions at the time of their creation, however, it is the way they are interpreted and implemented over time where they consistently go astray.

At the top of this page is an "About" in the menu bar - open it and it states :-

"CreateDebate is a new social networking community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. We’ve done our best to provide our community with a framework that makes compelling and meaningful debates easy to create and fun to use.

Our goal is to build CreateDebate into an incredibly useful learning tool that will help groups of people to sort through issues, viewpoints and opinions so that consensus and understanding can be reached and better decisions can be made".

Unfortunately human intervention is predictable, if we used Create Debate for the purpose it was established then there would be no need to debate this topic.

We accumulate our opinions from a variety of sources, sometimes without questioning the validity of the information and thereby assume we have gained knowledge which may be true or false.

It takes critical intelligence to differentiate between the two and the necessity to change our minds.
