    Why is there people still being born in this world?

    There was a child, someone that all humanity was expecting and one who brought hope to all humanity, ¬®Jesus Christ.¬® Why do so many people still bother to bring children to this world if according to scientific predictions, this world will collapse in less than a  century?

    I'm really not sure what this question has to do with Christianity or Jesus. The basic biological imperative to procreate is kind of obvious, as is the basic physical pleasure reward that we humans and many animals feel during sex.

    At the base level life is self-replicating chemistry so logically we've evolved to keep that up.

    For some reason or another, especially in the younger generation today, my generation, it seems like people just want to have kids, just to have kids. No one is waiting, or thinking their lives through anymore, planning on career and waiting until they're financially secured. The generation of today and the future generation and the way the world is, when people want something they expect to have it right away, and not sit around and wait.

    I personally feel its just because people want kids, just to have them, its like a facebook status or something people can brag about or show off to the world, I've yet to meet someone from my generation that wants kids because they want to raise them, and be responsible and be a good parent, the answers usually come out such as; "Because I want a Mini-Me" or something along those lines.

    So to answer your question, I think in this day and age, no one cares that the world might end, they just want things while they're alive.

    These comments may offend some people, but these are just based on my personal experiences and the people who are in my age group and in todays' society.

      Wanting to have  kids and seeing some of them getting lost in life is not very attractive to me.

      The more educated& affluent classes are waiting to have children until they have completed their education & are established in their careers. It's the uneducated & poorer classes who unthinkingly have children before being financially pr

    Many people have a tendency to be cynical and pessimistic about how they view the world. However as your question alludes to the fact that they continue to have children in a world they consider "no good" or "doomed" indicates they don't really believe it's all that bad.
    If one truly believed these were the "end days" why plan to have babies? It makes little sense. The reality is you can't keep kill hope. Just as we all know for a fact that we're going to die it does not keep us from striving to enjoy what time we do have here.

    Perhaps we need to look at the world through another set of beliefs instead of trying to modify everything to fit our personal 'religious' beliefs.
    This world offers much to those who learn to enjoy it. 
    There have been thousands of doomsday predictors over the years, and so far none have been correct.  If the world collapses it will be of man's own doing, and for selfish reasons.
    But, with hope for a better future, there is no reason to believe that humanity should not continue to procreate.  The problem with that statement is that when religious people fight against birth control, they are actually contributing to the overpopulation problem that will eventually cause mass starvation and death.
    God makes few mistakes and when we see the increase in same sex attractions, would one not take the time to consider that perhaps this is nature's way of slowing down the overpopulation  problem.
    Living in past fantasies and refusing to acknowledge that God knows more than man does not help with the troubles in this world, it only adds to them.

      There`s no way to stop that, but the next or two generations will suffer the consequences of today`s generation`s flaws

    Does this question have to do with the world coming to and end? Or is it purely based on religious beliefs?  Because I know that people don't follow adequate birth control methods which is why babies are still being born. Of course pro creation is biological. Not at all the logic of this question. See,s rather stupid iMO.

    What "scientific" predictions are you referring to that say this world will collapse in less than a century? And what has that got to do with the first part of your question regarding Jesus being born and giving hope to humanity? I'm not sure your question makes any sense. Sorry.

    According to the Word of God... 2nd  Corinthians 4:16
    "Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day."

    God brings His creation into being, not man.

    My question is... why do people look at life this way? Just like people saying that the world would end in 2012. You can't live everyday like your world, your life is going to end. People have kids as part of life. It brings them happiness. Something else to live for. Life wouldn't be life if we lived as if it will end tomorrow. What would life be if we lived that way.

      By having kids, we`re only inheriting them a worse world

    Same logic applies to it like our buying things again and again,growing corns and vegetables constantly and eating meals daily. As regards extermination of the world, so many prophesies proved wrong and nobody is sure of it like nobody has any inkling of one's departure from this planet. I think, this will be  suffice to satiate your query. Also, enjoy this life and at the same time  welcome and rejoice the birth of a new one. Each life is precious whether one is rich or poor, great or anonymous, weak or strong, dark or fair, successful or struggling....... To see the difference is to diminish the magic of life, just feel it with all your heart, mind and soul and be immersed in all bliss !

      There is more meaning to life than only enjoying it.

    Titen-Skull is pretty close to it, except that we seem to be first sensuous before we think of procreation. Pleasure or desire has become the first prerogative, but yes, procreation is strong.

    Those familiar with my answers will know that I put God first always. So what's happening here is a part of His plan. Souls come into this world essential to manifest His Light. When He feels the need to change things - at His Choice Hour - then we will get something different. Let's say that procreation seems to be necessary for the time being in so far that it pleases Him.

      with that logical line of thinking, would it not be also true that God has created the homosexual phenomenon 2 offset the overpopulation problem looming before us? exponential procreation unchecked is fatal 2 the survival of humanity.
