The world is not overpopulated.
"The world is teeming with people, and we don't have enough room on this planet!"
Wrong-o. This one is easily debunked. The entire population of the earth can fit easily in the State of Texas, leaving the bulk North America and all remaining continents empty. Even population control zealots can't (and don't) deny the math. The world is not "bursting" with humans who are practically falling off the planet. In fact, people take up hardly any geographic space at all. If you don't believe me, fly over the United States and look down. You will see mostly vast, empty spaces. Most of the world is vast, empty spaces.
"But people are breeding exponentially, and the population is rising much more quickly than ever!"
Not exactly. The worldwide fertility rate has dropped dramatically in the past 40 years. The effects of that drop have been masked, at least temporarily. Why? Because people are living much longer these days, so tens of millions of people are “staying” on Planet Earth longer than ever before. Fewer people are being born, but fewer people are dying as well. However, in the next 30 years, the world’s population will peak, then decline.
In fact, the real disaster on the horizon is underpopulation. Even today, most developed nations are not reproducing to replacement levels. With fewer young people to work and greater numbers of elderly people, we are in for a catastrophic economic meltdown. The natural population pyramid (many young people, fewer old people) has been inverted. Demographers have been warning of it for years, and now panicked nations* have started paying women to have more babies...without much success. I remember years ago when Nightline with Ted Koppel did an entire expert-riddled show exposing “The Birth Dearth.” I thought for sure the rest of the mainstream media would get on board. But instead they backed Al Gore and his climate change hype (which comes with predictable cries for depopulation).
*Russia, Britain, Japan, Germany, Australia, Estonia, Lithuania, and Austria to name a few....
"Okay, but even so, we don't have enough resources to feed everyone even today!"
Wrong again. The World Food Programme says, “There is enough food in the world today for everyone to have the nourishment necessary for a healthy and productive life.” The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization says "The world currently produces enough food for everybody, but many people do not have access to it."
Why don’t people have access to the overabundance of food we produce on this planet? After all, we have the technology it takes to build sound infrastructure and to provide clean water and nourishment to everyone on earth. Why can’t that technology be accessed and used by every nation? Well, because of things like civil war, power-hungry warlords, corrupt governments, and inept leadership. Even human ingenuity cannot overcome one thing: sin. As long as governments choose to starve their people, and as long as evil lives in the hearts of warlords and their minions who use food as a weapon, we will see more famine.
So, just how did the myth of "overpopulation" come about? Check out this cute little video for the facts:

Remember, there is someone formidable who hates human beings and wants to see them gone. Do you know who it is? Hint: It's not God.
