Food, water, shelter, sewage and electicity for 7 billion folks would require more logistcs than for the population of Jacksonville.

Boy you guys really seem to hate the Duggars.  Just vicious about them.  I guess that is not the kind of "diversity" and "tolerance"  you are normally so proud of?

LOL  - Well, anyway, why Jacksonville, Florida of all places?  Why not London or Moscow or Sydney?


Not knowing who this person is, I looked her up in Wiki, and I see that she is a conservative Christian (why does this not surprise me?), is married to a guy named Jim Bob (Oh, brother), lives in Arkansas, and has a bunch of kids with biblical names.


Remember what Bill Clinton used to say about Arkansas?  'Thank god for Mississippi.'


Those facts alone should tell you something about this couple and their idiotic philosophy.  One can only hope that this sort of moronic thinking is not shared by very many other Americans.


LOL

Even though I don't think it's wise or worthy of some kind of special admiration to give birth to 19 children, I support her right to make that choice. Same for Nadia Suleman (sp?), BKA "octomom."

Well being pro choice is about supporting OTHER PEOPLE having a choice.  Even if that choice is not one you would ever entertain making.  Being pro choice is not just about abortion it is also about the ability to CHOOSE the kind of family you want to have. 


One big difference between the Duggars and the Octomom is the Duggar children come from a family that can take care of the children.  Even though I personally would never be interested in having a uber large family in a resoulutely home-schooly, super-churchy, type of setting.  Those Duggar children seem to want for nothing.

If those kids are being raised in the suffocating fundamentalist Christian atmosphere in which they're being taught that:


every word in the bible is absolutely true;


homosexuality is a sin;


Jews are Christ-killers;


no matter what the circumstances, abortion is always a sin;


evolution is a lie and Darwin was wrong;


climate change isn't happening; 


atheists are going to hell;


- or, in other words, that they will grow up to be uncompromising conservatives -


Then, yes, I'd say that those kids are being greatly harmed in their upbringing by their parents.

I agree Solfeggio

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle
Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. Plato..

I think you both sound exactly like the mirror image of the fundamentalist, bigoted and judgemental coin.  The Duggars however flawed they are have nothing on you two.

Jacksonville  Florida  is the largest city(in area)in  the contiguous U.S.


I did not mention any  hate  toward the Duggars.  I shyer comment and it was in the context of the world population.  The  Duggars are a Reality  TV show family  with  19 Children. Their 20th was stillborn in the last trimester in December 2011.


 I am not one to dis large families.   I am the 9th surviving child of 13 pregnancies, I have an aunt who raised 14 children to adult hood

I couldn't care less about her children and have never seen their show. I'm just of the opinion that three-quarters of humanity are morons.
