I feel guilty. I am a threat to the universe. When the universe reaches maximum entropy it will be my fault. Woe is me, I am undone…
At least, that is what some of the chicks over at WowOWow are saying. Here’s what they have to say about the fact that I will soon have five, count them, five children.
According to Joan Ganz Cooney my irresponsible childbearing will result in the extinction of whole species,
“What alarms me is the much larger and more serious question of how large a population the earth can really support. For sure it cannot support a much larger population without straining the world’s resources to the breaking point. We simply don’t have enough water, food, energy and land to handle many more people without irrevocably harming the environment. Humans are taking over lands that used to feed animals in the wild and the population situation in Africa and other places is a terrible threat to the survival of many species. But we humans don’t seem to care about such matters so it’s on to having as many children as each family wants.”
According to Sheila Nevins my oversized family endangers Mother Earth,
“Thus the answers to population control fall back on individual responsibility to an over-production of the species. It is hard to see Mother Earth as a force to be reckoned with in daily living, as a living breathing endangered entity. Yet until we see the planet’s dire situation as individual responsibility — starvation, drought, and ultimate extinction seem inevitable as a result of overpopulation.”
And, according to Lily Tomlin my irresponsible childbearing will probably result in the destruction of the solar system, if not the whole universe,
“The human family is too big and getting bigger. There are too many of us humans on our planet and, unfortunately, even individually we are growing bigger. And the bigger the number and size, the more resources used and the more waste produced. We’re going to have to start polluting Mars or maybe shoot the waste into the sun and vaporize it.”
After reading these compelling arguments I have come to realize that my irresponsible procreation which threatens whole species, Mother Earth, and the universe is more ethically wrong that Darth Vader’s Death Star. At least the Death Star only destroyed individual planets. My large family will result in the destruction of the universe.
