    *many. Not man. (browser is too slow)

    In my opinion, it is because they are selfish, who think about themselves and how they would feel about having a baby. Most people dont calculate what the person will feel or be when he is an adult.

    LOL.

    I think it happens, because sex is good.

    You can have sex and not have babies.

    No clue what the **** you're on about.

    The comment fits the topic.

    Don't like it?

    I think sometimes when two people are caught up in the moment, the world fades out and all that matters is the desire, and whether protection is used becomes a moot point as rational gives way to the desire. It can be very difficult for a couple to stop that ball once it is in motion.

    Has something to do with birds and bees getting into the cabbage patch when a girl doesn't keep an aspirin between her knees but I forget the particulars now.

    It's called nature. Designed to keep the species from extinction. One is actually selfish by choosing not to have children.

    Because they forget that babies turn into adolescents.

    It's obvious, the more money/longer they can stay on welfare. With us that have to pay, not so many babies .

    I would go with 'normal animal instinct'... parenting is not really about selfishness.. to do it right, it is probably one of the more self-LESS things a person can do. But of course, that does not imply that everyone does it right, or even that there is a 'right' way to do it. :confuse:

    I think its selfish for people to have babies who can't even take care of themselves...In this day and age it seems like the majority of babies are created out of accident rather than planned. Mainly among the youth who believe that at 20 years old they are ready and able to bring a child into this world without seriously thinking things through.

    Plus it seems like people in general are just flat out irresponsible. Sex is great, do it all you want, just be responsible. I've managed to have sex quite often especially back in my early 20s and I still managed to never have any children. It's really not that hard...

    But to answer the OP's question as to why folks have babies? Well in the year 2017 the answer for a whole lot of them is because they screwed up.

    Not one but two of my best friends were just about to break up with their long-time girl friends, when they got pregnant. Whoops? I don't think so.

    How is having children "selfish?" Children are incredibly costly and time consuming.

    Reproduction is what drives all animal life. It's the only way to carry your genes forward into the future.

    Something that consuming can also be made for selfish reasons, as it satisfying you needs.

    Beer is also consuming. You need to work to get it. I am drinking it now..and it is good.

    It is because biologically we are designed to produce children. Part of the reason I wanted (and have) children is that I knew I would be a good parent as would my wife, and we would produce good, productive children. They aren't grown yet (19 and 17), but they are well on their way to becoming that.

    But we are different than animals. We can reason.
    Like the philosopher Aristole said.

    We are more intelligent from animals, but we are not different from them. We are animals. Socialization doesn't change that. We still have the same primal desires to mate and eat.

    You're trying to disguise the real argument you are making against having children as something else. People who have children aren't the selfish ones, the people who don't have children are the selfish ones. 99% of the people who choose not to have children are materialistic, selfish, and debauched left-wingers who can't stand the idea and responsibility of caring for children. They'd rather have more disposable income, more vacations, more sexual partners, etc. They've determined that these things are more important than carrying forward their genes into the future, which is effectively a form of suicide. Their lineage ends with them.

    Humans are distinct from all other (yet encountered) life forms due to the meshing of our instincts and our logic- two opposing internal forces that we must balance. Yes we can reason, but if we only reason, we become machines. If we abandon reason, we become animals. We are seperate from both only by embracing and balancing both logic and emotion.
