    It is not subjective it is objective. But the answer to your statement is obvious, not everyone does it.

    The purpose of parenthood is an after the fact result of not thinking properly do to the stimulation and excitement of sex. Nobody wants to be a parent.

    And do animals "delude" themselves in this same way?

    Do you need a dictionary for subjective? It was your opinion.

    But if you want to keep it within organisms (lol) then it's still not superior in any way. THe lowliest POS can reproduce....it is not remotely based on skill and these days, not even on the ability to protect and provide (for a man) or nurture and raise (for a woman). It is based on people just hooking up...easy peasy. And if they get pregnant, then they often have kids. It's the path of least resistance. Even an abortion requires action.

    To be superior, you actually contribute something to society...and that doesnt mean body count. It means actually sacrificing and raising good citizens. Both you and your offspring contribute to society. However non-parents can also contribute just as much to society. Reproduction is not remotely the main criteria to 'superiority.'

    Quality, not quantity.

    Are human beings not animals, and subject to the same basic instincts therein?

    Nobody wants to be a parent. Some delude themselves into thinking they do and others delude themselves into accepting their fate.
