Humanity Is In Peril With The Loss Of The Ability To Reproduce ‘The Death Of Our Species’ – Another Catastrophe Now Threatening Humanity Is Our Rapid Decline In Fertility


    by Alan Barton, All News Pipeline:

    ooking in John Chapter One we see in verses Four and Five, speaking of Christ Jesus, that “In him was life; and the life was the light of menAnd the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

    I bring this up because as I was researching for information on the declining birth rates of not just this nation, but the world as a whole, this scripture came to mind over and over again. This light speaks of more than just the giver of Truth, but far more. To me it is literal; He is the Light of Life, the power that the Sun uses to shine (nuclear physics is His creation as well) and fuels Life on this planet, and so much more. (All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made). This means by extension that as He is the Light of the world, not just spiritually but physically as well, then He is also the Life of the world. There is a reason that this is the first portion of John’s testimony of Christ as it is the most important thing to know of Him. But my intent is not a religious diatribe, but to showcase or highlight (forgive that unintended pun) the following information.

    TRUTH LIVES on at

    Light represents Life in so many aspects of art, philosophy, religion and even in science that it is often used as a synonym for Life. The Shroud of Turin, which is doubted by so many as being real, has the impression or image of a man on it that resembles the corpse of someone that was horribly crucified complete with blood stains and the newest (read as supposedly more likely to be accurate) carbon dating of the cloth indicating it is around 2,000 years old which is just the right timing for it to possibly be connected to Jesus. The theory is that upon His Resurrection, He gave off a burst of light as His spirit reentered His physical body and that it burned into the cloth the image of His actual appearance. Perhaps true and I prefer to see it as such even though I am not absolutely convinced it is. The main point is that Light is Life and that is where I wish to start.

    Back in 2016 there were a number of news shows and papers that announced that scientists had captured the flash of Light that sparks when a sperm meets an egg. Sure, there were the obligatory naysayers, but many reports on this finding were published including a Fox News report from April 26th that stated for the first time, “researchers have witnessed the exact moment conception occurs— and have recorded the ensuing explosion of sparks that form when sperm meets an egg.” From a Telegraph report saying that researchers from Northwestern University in Chicago noticed that “some of the eggs burn brighter than others, showing that they are more likely to produce a healthy baby.” “The bright flash occurs because when sperm enters an egg it leads to a surge of calcium which triggers the release of zinc from the egg. As the zinc shoots out, it binds to small molecules which emit a fluorescence which can be picked up by camera microscopes.” “These fluorescence microscopy studies establish that the zinc spark occurs in human egg biology, and that can be observed outside of the cell,” said Professor Tom O’Halloran, a co-senior author.”

    I find it beautiful how science and scripture complement each other when that linkage is looked for.

    That does not, however, give any clue as to why the birthrates have fallen so precipitously over the last few decades. There is a tipping point when sperm count and sperm motility decline below certain limits. When sperm populations meet certain limits and when those sperm are not swimming as a healthy sperm should, then the birthrate drops. You may have a lot of sperm but if it is not swimming as it should then the chances of conception drops off dramatically. From 1950 to today the birthrate average of the world as a whole has dropped from 37.844 per 1,000 people to only 17.668 per 1.000 people. That is less than half of what it was near when I was born. (source, Macro Trends) In the United States the birthrate was down to 1.6 per 1,000 and that is a good average for the western nations as a whole. Russia is lower at 1.5 while China is a bit higher at 1.7. (source, World BankStatista dot Com states that “In the United States in 1800, the average woman of childbearing age would have seven children over the course of their lifetime. As factors such as technology, hygiene, medicine and education improved, women were having fewer children than before, reaching just two children per woman in 1940. This changed quite dramatically in the aftermath of the Second World War, rising sharply to over 3.5 children per woman in 1960 (children born between 1946 and 1964 are nowadays known as the ‘Baby Boomer’ generation, and they make up roughly twenty percent of todays US population). Due to the end of the baby boom and increased access to contraception, fertility reached it’s lowest point in the US in 1980, where it was just 1.77.” Please note that when the birthrate drops below 2 the population declines and the future of that population is in dire straits to even exist very soon. Then add in the effects of war, pestilence, and disease and the future of this world is at risk of there not being any humans on t soon enough. God has told us that will not happen, but it will be close enough before He steps in to save the world.
