World population: How big is 7 billion?

The global population is expected to reach 7 billion Monday - just 12 years after hitting 6 billion - and the milestone has many pondering the complex challenges associated with billions more people on Earth in the coming years.

Shame on you again godsfool!

I pray that God will now send His righteous judgement upon you for continuing to spread such garbage. Look it is obvious that you are an agent of satan as you post such lies. You are not content in trying to force your way into heaven, which will fail, but like Jim Carry stated (you)/he wants to take as many with him as he can.

Yes, you are a fool as your name implies (godsfool713) and, you are the fool of the god of this world satan!

Careful Watchman,I had my post deleted for calling this individual "God's Fool",even though that's what is implied.GF can say what he/she/it wants to...( if "it" is perhaps one of the alien galactic commanders hereon,so maybe not having a gender as we earthlings know it ),and very aggressively too.

No problem. I will leave when God is ready, not a day before. I was kicked off the GET Team site long ago when hooking horns with Gankans, when he started posting this same type of garbage.

Those are some strong words, watchman42, and I am not sure they are justified. Sounds like the spiritual sherrif has died and left you in charge. I bet you were kicked off of the GET team site for the venom in your words and not the fact that you locked horns with Gankans.

There is a way to do it and you have set a remarkable example of what not to do. Temper your words.

If all 7,000,000,000 were in Alaska, each would have .06 acres to each their own, and .025 acres each if they were in Texas! Am I rich yet?

It's plain to see, what we need is another good old fashioned holy war crusade to cull the population.

The problem is the separatism that religion creates...the I'm better than you because I believe something different mindset...Why are we destroying each other and destroying the earth using fossil fuels when clean free energy sources are already available? Nasa has admitted to finding 100s of potentially habitable planets already and we haven't even begun to explore....Populating and exploring the universe feels to me like something we where created to do

Gmansaid,

Yes, they are very strong words and they are meant to be. We are living in a time where this New Age group and others like them are in direct opposition to God and His Word. If you are one of them then it applies to you as well. God's word is very clear, as there is only one way to heaven and only one! Those saved go to heaven and the rest spend eternity in h e l l. Godsfool states the exact opposite to scripture.

If you disagree with the standard - the Bible, then you are on the same path as godsfool. Jesus said that there was only one way to heaven, ONLY ONE. Why? To show everyone the correct Way. If you feel that godsfool is justified in deliberately misleading thousands on this site, then you couldn't be more wrong.

I'm very serious about godsfool's message being satanic, because it is. She, he, it is trying to teach that God really isn't Who He claims to be. If you agree with this and godsfool's decision to promote such falsehood then you too are blind.

The Bible is very clear, there is only one way the one can be saved and only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ. He said it Himself in John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Jesus also warned in Matthew 7:13 "Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it."

Religous fundamentalism is a good way of describing it. If they keep us fighting, maybe we can expedite the apocolypse?

Exactly...It takes a arrogant narrow mind think your beliefs are more justifiable then 2/3rds of the rest of population and that that justifies death and persecution...How much more obvious does it have to get that we are being held hostage to serve an evil purpose

I once had a nice lady from Texas tell me if all the Ice melted in Alaska, it would be the size of Arkansas. I told if that happens, she better learn how to tread water real good, because the only thing left of Texas would be the Davis Mountians, and they would be a island.
