I am just sick of hearing that the world is overpopulated. If people could have a tangible view of the true scope of the world population then perhaps they would stop spouting all this CRAP!
People starve in this world because of greed and the need for power. Control people’s bellies and you control them! Trust me, the powers that govern in the poorest countries in the world do not live as those whom they govern. They have pretty nice digs and drive very sweet vehicles!
Let’s take a visual snapshot:
Here is the math:
Texas has 261,797 square miles of Land (this does not include the miles of water)
1 sq mile = 27,878,400 sq feet
7,298,481,484,800 total sq feet of Texas
Divide that by the number of people in the world:
6,602,224,175 (July 2007 est.) So if you want to do the math just change the current number of people.
1,105 Sq. feet Home per person…PER PERSON!
Ok, well let’s take my family of 7. We would have a 7,735 sq foot house! HOT DOG! We live in a fraction of that now! And imagine if you made high-rise buildings, say, 50 stories…give half the population the apartment life and the other houses. We would have parks, yards and lots of space.
Now understand this is hypothetical, and just a model to give the reader an understanding of how big our planet really is and to PROVE that we are NOT running out of space. Our world is just being mismanaged and people are starving, NOT because we cannot produce enough food, OR that we are running out of space; we just have a sin nature filled with greed and corruption. It has been well known for millennia; You can easily control the populace by controlling the food.
