In Genesis 1 we see the handiwork of God in creation. He created man in his own image. He created male and female. In Genesis 1:28 it says, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” We see Adam and Eve having Abel, then Cain, and then Seth. In Genesis 5:4 we read that Adam and Eve begat sons and daughters. This carried on person after person. You can read the genealogy in Genesis 5.

However, there is a growing problem. It’s not that we have too great a population, but rather that worldwide fertility is declining. It’s being reported that every industrialized nation today has fertility rates under replacement levels. Our guest today has indicated that we are heading for a demographic train wreck, which he is terming a “demographic winter.” Demographers and governments know about it, but no one can figure out what to do about it.
