New entry: Antinatalism vs adaptationism.
Apparently this is some ideology called “bionatalism.” It’s like natalism except more hateful. When you argue against adaptationism as applied to human behavior, the first attack …

New entry: darthbarracuda’s attempt at debunking the Asymmetry.
Rebuttals to the Asymmetry seem to pop out with some regularity, mainly because it is the most well-known antinatalist argument. I think this is too bad, as there are many much stronger, and more i…

New entry: Richard Stallman, founder of GNU, and his bizarre “rebuttal” of the Asymmetry.
Richard Stallman is a prominent open software advocate who also writes on political issues. I was told that he had written a rebuttal to the Asymmetry, so naturally I was eager to read what Stallma…

The creation of any new life is a profoundly irrational act. It is perhaps the most eloquent demonstration that the reproduction of our societies is a form of mass delusion.

New entry: Pushing more of the antinatalist buttons.
Many antinatalists will already be familiar with the “red button” hypothetical, which asks a person if they would push a red button that would instantly kill every single human being on…

"Pertinently to this they say that Midas, after hunting, asked his captive Silenus somewhat urgently, what was the most desirable thing among humankind. At first he could offer no response, and was obstinately silent. At length, when Midas would not stop plaguing him, he erupted with these words, though very unwillingly: ‘you, seed of an evil genius and precarious offspring of hard fortune, whose life is but for a day, why do you compel me to tell you those things of which it is better you should remain ignorant? For he lives with the least worry who knows not his misfortune; but for humans, the best for them is not to be born at all, not to partake of nature’s excellence; not to be is best, for both sexes. This should our choice, if choice we have; and the next to this is, when we are born, to die as soon as we can.’ It is plain therefore, that he declared the condition of the dead to be better than that of the living.”"

Aristotle, Eudemus

About this community

Antinatalism is the position that procreation is wrong. Antinatalists are like childfree people, except that they also take a principled stance against all procreation, not just their own. Life entails suffering, and this suffering has no reason to exist.

I don't break rear windows and steal children's car seats but I love this guy, his work, and his message in this clip.

Here's a link to the study most environmentalists don't want to talk about: http://oregonstate.edu/ua/ncs/archives/2009/jul/family-planning-major-environmental-emphasis

Wow, I just found out about this "ideology" called bionatalism... Well, it's really just natalism. But they don't shy away from calling women immoral for not having children.

"Bionatalism is a back to basics survival guide for Humanity. Human birth rate is dropping fast due to human hedonism and individualism, effective birth control and anti-STD drugs and anti-natalist ideologies like ChildFree, MGTOW, Zeta male ideologies. If the decline of birth rates is not stopped, Humanity will cease to exist."

Great, I get lumped in with MGTOWs?? Fuuuuuuuuck

"People who come into existence are not harmed by their coming into existence. Rather, the existence of people or other conscious beings is a prerequisite for there to be harm. I would even admit that some people lead good lives. Nonetheless I am an anti-natalist, and I do recommend to reverse any pro-natal decision on the grounds that many people will suffer unspeakably even though all parents might have only good intentions regarding their offspring: The pleasure parents derive from having children and the bliss some people experience in life are inextricably interwoven with the pain countless other people (and non-human sentient beings) experience. Let me clarify this with respect to the institution of the slaughterhouse: The pleasure most people derive from eating meat is inextricably interwoven with intense suffering on the part of the animals that are raised and slaughtered. The animals’ suffering is not compensated for by the fun most people experience when they eat meat. Pointing to some animals that have decent lives and are killed painlessly is to no avail. In a similar manner, the joy that a considerable number of people experience in their lives is built upon an ocean of suffering. As every procreation implies a lottery (genetically and socially) and as history has revealed to us what man is capable of doing to his counterpart, any decision to procreate should be reversed. – While there is no such reason to reverse a decision not to procreate regarding those few who would presumably lead decent lives and die pain- and fearlessly."
(Prague 2010). Historically informed anti-natalism. History has laid down for all to see the good things and the bad things which people can enjoy and must endure and the atrocities which some people can administer to many others. Presumably, most of the good and bad things will not disappear if ...
