I took another look at the Muslim Demographics video
and I’m quite dismayed. Unknowingly, I was recommending a Christian-based piece of propaganda.
I was so daunted by the Muslim growth statistics (> 8 per family) that I overlooked the purpose and intention of the video makers.
First of all, when a video or article starts off with, “According to research…” it should send up a red flag. What research? Any statement with that introduction should be suspect and carefully scrutinized. The narrator continues to tell us that in order for a culture to “maintain itself” for 25 years, there must be a fertility rate of at least 2.11 children per family. He goes on to tell us that most European countries has rates of < 2.0 offspring.
The fact is the planet needs 0.0 offspring per family for a few years—a pregnant pause. The earth needs time to rejuvenate in many ways: soil all over the world is near depletion, the seas cannot sustain fish populations with industrial fishing ravaging and working havoc on the marine biology. Whales are committing suicide; even immeasurable schools of herring, whose numbers reach into the trillions, are dwindling perilously. The base of the food change is not inexhaustible.
The video demonstrates how religion distorts and deranges perception of reality. At the end, the narrator divulges that it is Christian based and urges, “as believers, we call upon you to join the effort to share the gospel message in a changing world. This is a call to action.”
A Christian membot can only interpret this “call to action” as an exhortation to jump into bed and start making babies. They are likely to believe this snake oil salesman that their culture will disintegrate unless they meet the Muslim challenge baby for baby.
Afterthought: A close friend of Paul R. Ehrlich of Stanford tells me that he is quite disappointed with the ineffective results of his life’s work. The Population Bomb
(1968) bombed in its predictions for mass starvation by the ‘80s. We’ll see how seriously he’s taken in the next two decades with the Muslim-Christian population war rampaging unchecked.
