One could also say that the use of the term "population" is problematic in that it's associated with (micro)evolution within a species.
Macroevolution is, effectively, evolution within a population that includes more than one species.
The current - or next - state of the arms race is hypersonic missiles. Nuclear versions of these will require hypersonic counter-missiles, if not energy/beam weapons, to neutralise..
If such missiles became so fact that there's no realistic defence against them, then I'd hope that...
Due to my being about to go out when I typed my previous post, I made a boo-boo, which I've now corrected.
To save anyone having to go back to read it:
1) True RNGs are based on stochastic natural phenomena, such as radioactive decay;
2) Pseudo-RNGs are based on algorithms to...
You seem to be back-sliding, AMorrow.
You'd acknowledged, in a earlier post, that you realised it was a bad idea - regardless of what you call it ("A onion by any other name...), yet you appear to be still trying to make it work.
All that's needed is universal access to birth...
He suffers from Asperger's, as far as I know, which may explain his lack of social skills (inappropriately calling people paedophiles, etc.).
He's also had to resign as CEO of Tesla due to certain run-ins with the SEC, and recently came under fire for his tweets - the SEC are...
I'm glad that you've finally realised this.
Universal access to birth control is all that's needed.
Let women decide for themselves whether they want to get pregnant every time they have sex or not.
The term "population control" conjures up images of hordes of people...
I faced somewhat similar animosity from someone in a pub in the UK.
He was an Irish chap who was banging on about the British. Turned out he'd been in the Royal Marines but had refused to serve in Northern Ireland, and had either left or been "let go". He seemed to think that...
Global Contraception Programme.
There's a policy that would help control population growth.
If you want to campaign for global population management, start by opposing the "Global Gag Rule":
"The global gag rule forces health care providers to choose between U.S. global health...
Most of the old nuclear powers understand by now that strategic nuclear weapons are not viable due to MAD.
As a result, they are shifting the emphasis to tactical nuclear weapons.
However, the "wanna-bes" - North Korea et al - still want to be nuclear powers.
I think it might help to consider the interaction between Nature and Nurture.
Although I've never seen this analogy used before, I think of this in terms of dancing round a maypole.
The maypole represents Nature, in the form of genes.
Nurture is represented by the ribbons.
I'm sure he has - and by others over the years - but if he hasn't grasped this basic concept that evolution takes a long time, then it would explain why he doesn't understand/accept any of it.
I'm perfectly happy to continue talking to him - as long as his misunderstanding is...
