    How does choosing to procreate make one superior? In what context?

    I wish. Plan to be so soon.

    I deluded myself once I heard the words, "I'm pregnant!". I mean, how could this these two ever bring a smile to my face?

    They cant help it...it's the strongest urge for any organism, including humans. So it doesnt make anyone superior....for many, it's the path of least resistance...sex feels good, they have sex, someone gets pregnant, and then doesnt bother to have a abortion.

    Just like a cat or opossum.

    It's what someone MAKES of their life...or their offspring's life...that may make them superior.

    Agreed... except for the omission of the "an" in front of opossum, that is.
