What the World Needs Now ... Is More People

Most of us will agree that the most significant problem facing the world now and into the foreseeable future is that the planet has too many people. Overpopulation leads to food and energy shortages, wars over property and water, and the myriad problems that come from that one simple dynamic.

Most of us.

There are exceptions and you don't have to go far to find the source. One is a woman named Michelle Duggar who is the star of a reality show. Nice science credentials. She has 19 children (and wants more). During an interview recently on the Christian Broadcasting Network she insisted, "The idea of overpopulation is not accurate." She says the population of the world could be contained within the city limits inside of Jacksonville, Fla. (My calculations show that Jacksonville would hold about 1.3 billion people stacked front to back, shoulder to shoulder. 'Course if you stack them like cordwood, you could get a bunch more, but I'm not sure anybody wants to live that way.) She says we need more children because they bring joy. (Story here.)

Where do these people come from? Jeeeeezus!
