    If ever I feel the world population is too large relative to the means to support it, I would advocate better means not less people.

    "When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."

    My own opinion, which is the same as the opinion of genetic scientists, isn't on thee. I guess the experts would have to choose "that question is above my pay grade" as their response.,
