What are Future Generations going to be like? In the past the most fit to
reproduce were the people that had the skills to gather food and protect
their offspring. This required a certain amount of intelligence and good
health of the parents that would be passed on to their children through DNA.
Today the most productive people that our civilization depends on are in
most cases using birth control to reduce or eliminate their offspring. What
are future generations going to be like 5 generations from now?

European women have on average 1.4 children
African women have on average 6 children
Since 1950 90% of the worlds population growth has been in the third world
Currently 98% of the worlds population growth is in the third world
By the year 2050 world population will double to about 12 Billion
Currently a child dies of malnutrition every 2 seconds

The above numbers are from nation to nation, but this dysgenic population
explosion is occurring within every nation as well. Putting a incredible
strain on the earth's resources.
