Anybody but a total idiot knows that human numbers will NOT continue to 
increase at the present rate.  Why don't you and your Aryan buddies take a 
demography class?  Our growth rate has already slowed and will continue to 
slow.

Well, it is "natural" to avoid death--all animals seek to survive.  I agree 
that this is a bit extreme, but you can hardly call it unnatural.  One could 
even use this issue to argue why humans are different than animals--humans are 
much MORE likely to accept calmly their impending deaths.
 Yes, human civilized systems Are very complex, as opposed to
>primitive societies.  This is not natural nor desirable,

Of course it is natural--how else would those systems have evolved into 
being!!!   Leaf-cutter ants have evolved their community system,  
wild horses have evolved their community system, dolphin pods have 
evolved their community system, and so have human beings.  Just 
because it is more complex than you would like to deal with, does 
not make it unnatural.  Some days I don't feel like dealing with it 
either, but I am hardly going to reject all the things I don't like 
while still benefitting from the things I do like--for EXAMPLE, 
computers (or are you communicating with us telepathically?).


I am not sure I can continue this thread--certain people have advised me that 
you are a troll!  I am trying to form an independent opinion, however....
