A couple interesting infographics


DuggarsTheEndIsNear

Recommended Posts

I'm posting this here because it reminds me of the Duggar's claim that we can all fit in the city limits of Jacksonville, Fl (for what it's worth they aren't wrong, since the entire population of the world could sit and/or stand next to each other and still fit in the confines of the city; but that hardly means anything).

This person originally made a couple images showing how big a city would have to be to fit the entire population (then 6.9 million people) with the same density as famous cities around the world. Then, after numerous people commented that the hypothetical cities weren't that big and clearly there was more room for expanding populations, the original poster went back and changed the maps to how much space we would take up if we all lived like the average person in certain locations.

Thanks, that was good. We all know the "there's no overpopulation problem" argument is stupid, but these graphics really help show us why. I think even the Duggars could understand them, but they probably wouldn't accept them.

I agree with docmom, that was a great link. Totally agree that the Duggars would still not accept them - they love their flawed logic!

Technically, it doesn't look to me like there IS an overpopulation problem IF all of us lived like those in Bangladesh. Of course, this would mean giving up our consumerist lifestyles, ditching meat-heavy diets and quite a few other changes that many of us simply aren't willing (and maybe even not able) to make. We're squandering resources while others are barely making do with the minimum.

That infographic puts me to shame.

Overpopulation has to do with carrying capacity of an ecosystem. It's not a pure numbers deal. As long as you're putting back as much or more than what you're taking from an environment, there isn't a problem. But, once you start removing more than what you put back, the ecosystem suffers and problems like famine, disease, drought, etc occur.

And, yes, the UAE uses more than the US because of Dubai and the recourses needed to provide everything they've designed.

What are y'all talking about? Food comes from Aldi, not, like farms and stuff like liberals buy their food from.

With this many kids, we have to make sure every penny counts. After all, food doesn't grow on trees!

      So angry right now.  If I could return to Luxembourg tomorrow and renounce my citizenship in this stinking shitpile of a country I would.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.
