  •  God was able to supply all men's needs, (5+ / 0-)

    until the concept of private property was invented and much of God's earth was declared off limits to the majority of the population.

    Some people argue that there are too many humans, so the resources have to be rationed and only those that comply with directions deserve to be sustained. What I'd argue is that humans are like other creatures whose rate of reproduction shoots up under stressful environmental conditions. Since humans are also psychological creatures, psychological stress likely does the same -- increases reproduction. Which, btw, seems to be born out by the rate of fertilization in association with rape, as compared to the rate of fertilization as a result of consensual relations -- the opposite of what poor Mr. Akins opined.

    I've noticed, for example, whenever we dig a new pond where there was none before and introduce minnows or other "bait" fish, the first thing they do, even though the available nutrients are few, is reproduce in great numbers. Frogs and toads do that, too. Tadpoles cope with a nutrient shortage by eating their own.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.

    •  hannah, what you are saying is (0+ / 0-)

      as wrong and ignorant as Akin.

      I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
