All are inevitable. Furthermore you know they're going to depopulate the world and make you a statistic.

Why would you choose to exist in this world if you have a choice?

For those who said they would choose not to be born, if you have the option now, would you make that choice for your future children not to be born as well?

There is no if. We all chose to be here now. It's called free will. No pain, no gain as the saying goes. We chose to be born so our soul can gain experience and hopefully learn the lessons we decided (before we came here) that we needed for our soul to grow and evolve.

to be chosen to be created is a priviledge. Knowing that this existance on Earth is temporal and there is eternity afterwords, makes it bearable to live here. There is hope in Jesus

Re: If you had the choice, would you choose to be born?
Despite being grateful for the life God gave me, I would have to say no, I would choose to skip it. Does that make any sense, I don't know. I guess I feel guilty to say I would rather not have been born, but that's how I feel.

I have already been instrumental in that choice, sending them back to God.

It sucks, it hurts all the time... but it was the right choice.
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.

Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

Re: If you had the choice, would you choose to be born?
Honestly, given that life that I have had lead, the answer would have to be no. Since it's already happened, the only thing I can do is not bring any children into this fucked up world.

You asked the question on an off day for me. I'm usually more deluded and chipper about stuff.

Population control is insane. Let the control of the numbers remain in the hands of the population. No one wants to die just because a small few think the world is over populated.

If we go back to depopulation we will end up in concentration death camps.

For every low point in life, there is a high point... and they wouldn't feel so high if we didn't have low points to compare. See without bad times, we can't appreciate good times - and life would be bland.

1. growth, learning
2. health
3. joy
4. pleasure
5. livin la vida loca

Bad times are inevitable.. but good times are too :)
It's impossible to be remembered forever because those that remember us will eventually die out too. EVERYONE is a petty statistic.. but who cares, at least we're alive. Can't it be fun? I couldn't help but laugh that you listed death as a bad thing. Here are a couple quotes
------------------------------------------------------------

"I'll tell you a secret... God envies us. He envies us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again."

"One day I plan to be a family man happily married
I wanna grow to be so old that I have to be carried
Till I'm glad to be buried
And leave this crazy world
And have at least a half a million for my baby girl"
------------------------------------------------------------

The only thing worse than death is immortality. Could you imagine being stuck here forever? We all need to go at some point.. 60-70 years is a pretty good run.

"Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome"

Why would you choose to exist in this world if you have a choice?

Honestly.. I don't know if I want to exist in this world. My life is a stretching series of low points and those high points I speak of are much too rare for me. The only thing that keeps me going is the anticipation of a better life with a frequent string of high points but this shit is getting old and I'm tired of waiting. I used to be religious.. and things were so much easier. Human responsibility was reduced to nothing, it's all god's will, and wishful thinking in a fantasy land. But then I grew up. Now my mind is free and everything's clear, but the world feels much colder.

As far as having children goes.. I'm a little nervous about having a child. What if he has a life like mine? I don't wanna bring someone into existence just so they can feel like shit and not want to exist anymore.. kinda like the way I'm feeling right now. But on the other hand, having kids is said to be one of the greatest joys in life. That's too good an offer to pass. I just hope that if I do have kids, they live much happier lives than mine.

BTW someone on here called you a pessimist.. but that's bullshit. These are fundamental questions that rational people have always pondered.. and everyone here should address them to think and reflect on their own lives. You'd be a mindless idiot not to ask yourself these questions at some point in your life.

Yes, only because there would have been no one to take care of my mom and dad, and for the sake of the homeless dogs I rescued. That's what makes it worth it, I have done some good.
