If you knew for certain that the World would end in 100 years hence, would you still have children?
Consider an ever decreasing services of police, health, a lack of everything, and a calender that runs backward to the end...20 years to midnight...19 years to midnight...
Even if I knew the world were going to end, I would live as if it were never going to end. Frankly, it is hard for me to argue having children now, I find it difficult to find meaning in this materialistic money success driven world. So I don't know.
Yes, I would. Only after having children you would realize how much happiness they bring to your life. 100 years or 1000, it does not matter. Enjoy the life as it comes.
Suppose that you did not have children because of the possibility of the world ending in one hundred years. But that one of the grandchildren that you did not have was going to be clever enough to help solve some of the problems the world has.
Sorry - a complicated thought but cannot break it down into a smaller sentence or make it easier.
Interesting question which should pull some diverse answers. As for me, it's 3 kids and 8 grandkids too late. But if it weren't, my answer would be NO, I would NOT have children. I believe that it is too late to hope for 'cleverness' to save the day, and wrong to expect anyone, including children, ours or anyone elses, to provide us happiness.. that's our own job.. And as for being fruitful and multiplying.. that request was made long long ago, and we've already done it, to the tune of billions. If in fact, we really are 'all in this together like one big family, so to speak' ..then why would we want yet more children, when we aren't providing for all those we have now?!?
No, I wouldn' t, because I wouldn' t like to "see" them suffer.
