Conception/birth not accidental + Life sustainable Feb 4, 2007
Every human conception involves the cooperation of God, the author of life. If God allows conception, he will also sustain the life thereby produced. God is not, after all, cruel. People who place the earth/the planet above the human beings for whom it was created (on their scale of values/priorities) have things entirely backwards. You cannot rightly cherish the planet at the expense of the people for whom it was aptly created and abundantly endowed. Thank God for Jacqueline Kasun's debunking of the myth of overpopulation. I am sick of hearing from all too many people who have unwittingly swallowed the lie of overpopulation.
Boldly Questioning the Assumptions Jul 29, 2005
This book is controversial. It is controversial because it offers a point of view - backed up by copious amounts of factual data from scholarly sources - that is contrary to 99.9% of the available "information" on the world's population "problem". If one is to be truly rational in one's actions, opinions, beliefs and allegiences in this manner, it is imperative to question the assumptions on which one's view of reality are based.
The interpretation of population statistics is complex. This being the only book I have come across that makes a serious attemt to question and test what others simply assume, I cannot be 100% convinced that the state of the world is exactly as this author has ultimately interpreted it - but if only 5% of the conclusions drawn in this book are "unbiased", there is sufficient evidence to suggest that there has been a sustained, conscious effort by "powers that be" to produce evidence of an overly-populated world that is substantialy more rhetoric than fact. Could it be that the political and intellectual leaders of our consumer-driven Western world simply find it more expedient to blame "over-population" for the world's economic, environmental, and sociological crises, than to seriously question the values that underpin their own policies?
The time has come for us to be mnore holistic in our approach to the world's - that is, the human family's - collective problems. This book is a start.
Controversial but honest. Jan 27, 2003
I make it a point to read books attacked by most for being ideologically biased, while others hold the same book up as an example of clear thinking.
Read the book for yourself. Any open minded person will find her arguments to be: sound, rational, clear, and correct!
NO May 1, 2002
I haven't even read the book, i have read exerts and refuse buy such irrational ideal. Read Ishmeal!! EARTH is not OUR WORLD, we are defying the laws of nature and think it is OKAY! We need to control our population, or on a more drastic end stop feeding the homeless, stop curing the ill, allow nature to take its course thereby reducing our population. I would prefer the former to the latter, education and action concerning this worlds grave state need to be addressed and soon. IN THIS GENERERATION, we need to stop putting it off!
A horrible distortion of reality Apr 11, 2001
Kasun has written what I can only characterize as a completely biased, unabashed distortion of scientific reality, evidently from the perspective of someone who regards living six to a bed as normal, and to whom the welfare of our Mother Earth and all species are utterly inconsequential.
