Progressive Science and Beliefs to Feed World Popuation
The basic division among life forms is between the simpler Bacteria and the more complex Eucaryotes. (Patterson & Sogin 1992):
I. A. Science has Progressed and Added Whole Kingdoms.
When I was in school there was only the Plant and Animal Kingdoms. Science has progressed and added whole New Kingdoms.
Although many people are aware that there are millions of different kinds (species) of living organisms on Earth today (although our own species is doing its best to drive many of them into extinction), surprisingly few people are aware that these organisms are now divided up among no fewer than Seven Kingdoms.
We will be concerned with the Yeast Fungus.
Kingdom: EUMYCOTA (some prefer FUNGI)
Species: Agaricus brunnescens -- the edible (supermarket) mushroom.
I. B. Yeast Fungus may be able to Feed the Increasing World Population.
As the human population grows, it is ever more important to temper our levels of consumption of the Earth’s dwindling resources. Humans currently consume at least 40 percent of potential terrestrial productivity, and some 30 percent of the land on Earth is used to pasture and feed livestock. Food reserves are the lowest they’ve been in 40 years, yet—thanks to an expanding population that the United Nations (UN) expects to grow to more than 9 billion by 2050—the demand for food will increase dramatically over the coming decades. Climate change, reduced productivity of agricultural lands, overfishing, dwindling freshwater resources, pollution from fertilizers and pesticides, and a host of other factors mean that this population increase will place a disproportionate burden on Earth’s ecosphere. Something has to change.
Nutritional supplements such as Whey have been used to provide more protein for food. The problem with Whey is that is a milk product and thus is dependent upon cattle. Cattle have been shown to be a very expensive food source.
Yeast is a Fungus and its growth and production is not tied to the expensive cows. Yeast supplements are the future to feed a world with an increasing population. Yeast can be grown in vats 24/7/365. No hormones needed, no GMOs, no pesticide, no planting or harvesting. Yeast is a pure nutritional supplement to be combined with leafy greens and root vegetables.
Birth Control Methods
II. A. Population Control is Needed Worldwide.
Along with better food production, people must learn population control. The resources of the world should not be taxed to its limit, but we should reduce population to more manageable numbers. Education in Birth Control is recommended.
Birth control is how you prevent pregnancy before it begins. There are lots of different methods that work really well and are easy to use.
Vasectomy is 99% effective. It won’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom to help stop STDs. It is time Men started to take more responsibility in birth control. The man may make a sperm donation to a sperm bank prior to a vasectomy.
The implant is 99% effective. It doesn’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with your implant to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
The Patch is 91% effective. It doesn’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with your patch to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
The Pill is 91% effective. It doesn’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with your pill to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
The shot is 94% effective. It doesn’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with the shot to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
The sponge is between 76-88% effective. It doesn’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with your sponge to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
The ring is 91% effective. It doesn’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with your ring to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
Breastfeeding as birth control is 98% effective. It doesn’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom for help stopping STDs.
Cervical caps are between 71-86% effective. They don’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with your cervical cap to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
Condoms are 82% effective. They help protect you from STDs. Use another birth control method with your condom for even more pregnancy preventing power.
The diaphragm is 88% effective. It won’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with your diaphragm to help stop pregnancy and STDs.
Female condoms are 79% effective. They help protect you from STDs. Use another birth control method with your female condom for even more pregnancy preventing power.
FAMs are 76% effective. They don’t protect you from STDs. Use a condom with FAMs to help protect you from pregnancy and STDs.
There is One Progressive Belief System.
II. B. A New Progressive Belief System Is Needed.
Science has now demonstrated that there is only One Race of Human. Therefore we should learn to help members of our own species rather that fight one another.
On Fighting and Self Defense
From the Baha'i scriptures:
The world is but one country and mankind its citizens... Let not a man glory in that he loves his country; let him rather glory in this that he loves his kind. "The Tabernacle of Unity, " Bahaullah
“O people of the earth!
“The first Glad-Tidings which the Mother Book hath, in this Most Great Revelation, imparted to all the peoples of the world is that the law of holy war hath been blotted out from the Book. Glorified be the All-Merciful, the Lord of grace abounding, through Whom the door of heavenly bounty hath been flung open in the face of all that are in Heaven and on earth.
“The second Glad-Tidings . . .”
--Tablets of Baha’u’llah, pp. 21-22
O ye lovers of God! In this, the cycle of Almighty God, violence and force, constraint and oppression, are one and all condemned. (Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 149)
I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. (Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 29)
Mankind must not only learn to feed the world more efficiently, but educate for Birth Control and Cease Fighting.
