Reducing Human Population Growth

Due to the indoctrination of World Religions and their control over the masses, prior peoples were told to procreate the next generation to serve their god or gods. They were told how to live their lives and taught about sinful thoughts. Most of which are the very reason our species evolved to the top of the food chain. However now we see those who have superior intellect readily debunk the notions and tales of those religious leaders and their stories. What is happening now is that non-believers in Allah, God, Santa Clause or other Creator are not reproducing as much as those who do believe in superstition, voodoo dolls or World Religions.

There are many theories as to why this is. Some say it is because those with better reasoning capacity realize the costs and responsibilities of having and raising children, while others simply follow their religious doctrines and/or innate characteristics to procreate. There are many now without children who seem to be quite content not to have kids and appear to be anti-religion. So then, here is a thought; if you want to slow down population growth, which is said to surpass 50 Billion by 2065. We all know that at our current rate of water and food consumption that this is unfeasible and will lead to poor health and more importantly adverse human rights.

Some might argue that if everyone believes in a different religion that they will continually have wars and therefore limit population growth thru killing each other. This in fact could be true, yet less than 1% of the people who have ever lives have died in wars from our written historical record of the last 10,000 years. This one-percent is complete insignificant so that is not going to work, even though some have said; "war is a things which gives us purpose," and perhaps it is. Likewise books like the "God Gene" and other writings have asked questions such as "Did God create man or Did man create God" i.e. Man had a need to explain something he felt but could not understand or comprehend, but believed there was something else.

Now then, if we get rid of religion completely, we can save money and stress, which is killing us and causing health issues of our citizens, while simultaneously controlling our ever-increasing population growth. The money we save can be used to help those who still have invisible friends and talk to them selves some much overdo psychological help. Think about it.
