Long story short: being an educated liberal atheist is like having a disease where your testicles rot and fall off.
Never a truer word said in jest. Anon.
The Inductivist is too delicate to mention what happens to educated liberal atheist females.
If political and religious preference is passed down to children then over time there will be more conservatives - this has been a problem in places like Turkey and Egypt where "conservative" means Islamic jihadist but perhaps among Western Christians this is not such a bad thing and will lead to a different society.K
If we survive at all. Anon.
For a long time (well, long in my timescale-I'm young,) I've been saying that the Amish, Mormons, fundamentalist Protestants, Orthodox Jews and maybe some conservative Muslims will inherit America in my lifetime. Of course, as things stand today, they'll be sharing it with the descendants of border-crossing alliterados. Me, I'd like to have a large family without having to drink the Orthodox Kool-Aid or convert to Christianity, as I am allergic to the concept of God as a trial judge in need of lawyering and hate the dominant Jewish culture in America (it's either impotent pallid yeshivebochers jerking off to tales of the IDF's might, or ballcutting vegan feminist communications majors and their emasculated alimony donors of the future,) but do not believe in the divinity of Christ. We'll see how that one turns out.
My college roommate came from a more or less classic American Jewish leftist family - his parents were lefty college professors. Yet for some reason they decided they wanted to have a lot of kids and had 8 of them. So it's not impossible to be fruitful and multiply without being a religious fanatic, but being a fanatic seems to help. Good luck finding a yiddishe maydel (or for that matter a modern shikse) who is willing to raise a pack of kids with you. Here is a hint - the lowest birthrates in Europe nowadays are found in the countries with the most sexist traditions (the southerly countries). The women there realize that their men won't lift a finger to change a diaper so they are not enchanted with the idea of raising 6 or 8 children (or even more than 0 or 1) entirely on their own. If you can convince your spouse to be that this will be a joint effort she might be willing to have more.K
BBetter start early.
It's true that part of the problem (which the Orthodox who marry young don't have) is that modern Jews are getting married at age 30+. This is no problem for men but for women, age 30 is already more than halfway thru their childbearing years and not only that but their better half, where they are more fertile and have few problems with pregnancy. There is now a huge industry involving fertility treatments, in-vitro fertilization, pre-natal testing, etc., etc. most of which wouldn't exist if women were having their children closer to 20 instead of 40. K
And strangely, they seem happy to forego the anti-breast cancer effects of pregnancy before age 30, and then wonder why they are breast cancer victims later on.Anon.
Don't be silly - any evidence of truly dangerous health effects associated with behavior that fits within the liberal definition of acceptable or good will be ignored, whether it is abortion or gay bathhouses or whatever. Better to focus on the danger of drinking soda pop. Breast cancer has gotten far too big a share of the attention and fund raising anyway - there are a lot of less "sexy" cancers such as lung, bladder, etc. that get almost no attention because the victim groups are not as popular with the media. We are approaching the situation in the Soviet Union where every single issue, even seeming "scientific" questions such as "global warming" are viewed thru a political lens.K
