“Of all the problems facing western society, there is one question that I suspect will come to determine the answer to many of the rest. Will the West find a way to continue to have children, or will it not?
There is no escaping this question, because it is the one that evolution has ordained for us. Creatures that successfully reproduce replace those that do not. Traits that encourage reproductive success get selected for, regardless of what you personally think of them.
Most people do not really comprehend this at a deep level, because they have odd and distorted ideas about what evolution is.
In the popular conception, evolution is something that serves to make creatures awesome. It is effectively nature’s version of the Apple R&D department.”
