    PopeBeanie,

    I don’t have a promo code, so I don’t make any money from saying this, but Temu has some fantastic Atheist symbol auto decals, they did at one time have Atheist symbol cuff links, and they have some fantastic pro-science, pro-Enlightenment T-shirts that say things like: “Science Doesn’t Care What You Believe,” “Science: Like Magic, Only Real,” and “My Rights Don’t End Where Your Feelings Begin!”

    Needless to say, I’ve bought a whole mini-wardrobe of these shirts, with plans to buy their tin signs for home finishing that display factoids of various branches of scientific knowledge. Temu really is for “Shopping Like A Billionaire!” 😎

    “Science Doesn’t Care What You Believe,” “Science: Like Magic, Only Real,” […]

    That’s cool, and makes me smile. I’ve noticed before how great their marketing to westerners is, making me think they’ve hired some savvy westerners to translate, and maybe they have a marketing department with westerners employed. Speaking of which, I’ve noticed how culturally savvy ChatGPT is. After all, everything that it “knows” is compiled from human writings around the world, now on the internet.

    Robert and Unseen,

    Paul Ehrlich’s “The Population Bomb was wrong from the get-go, and his famous wager with Julian Simon about shortages of resources only punctuates that.

    Also, if 4 billion was the carrying capacity of Earth, then–since scientists estimate that there have been 100 billion Human beings since humans came into being–Earth has reached carrying capacity up to 25 times. (I say “up to” since for most of our time on Earth, the bulk of humans were either stillborn or died in childhood and children don’t use as many resources.)

    All that exists is Energy and it’s slowed-down form Matter. These become resources when humans apply thought and effort to make them useful for human flourishing. Resources are thus as infinite as the Universe and as the human mind.

    Sure. I mean, setting off 1 nuke a year for 10,000 years is the same as setting of 10,000 nukes all at once. We all know that. And plus species never go extinct anyways, right? Trex and company had all the means they needed, because all that exists is energy. Too bad they did because they make good pets down at the creation museum.

    LOL, your response is more creative than mine would have been. I concede.
