Evolution's Sex Drive and Population Decline.
« on: 23/11/2006 14:43:22 »
Being it accepted by most that we have evolved a drive to reproduce, why is the population declining in many places? I know about the pill, but it seems to me the drive is for pleasure, and gratification, and the reproduction part is a mattter of conscious thought.

you kind of answered your own question. youre correct, if the drive is for pleasure and gratification and not neccesarily reproduction, and we have reliable birth control, the population can easily go down in many places despite just as much drive.
