not enough souls

there are too many people on Earth and not enough souls to go around.

In the year 1, there were around 200,000 people living on planet Earth. Now a mere two-thousand-eight years later, we’ve got 6.77 billion, an increase of 33,850% – or an average annual population increase of almost 17%. No wonder we’re eating the planet, we’re like a bloody fungus.

Around 137 million humans are born Earth-wide each year, and 56 million die – leaving 81 million new bodies a year to house, feed and rip-off. This is a much more realistic annual population increase of 1.1%.

Some guestimate there’s been 30 billion people born since since day one, leaving more than 23 billion human dead scattered about since the beginning of human history. That works out to 3.43 dead people for each live person now walking.

I’ve been thinking about requesting my 3.43 dead souls and putting them to work cleaning up my karma so I get a better deal in the afterlife.

The trouble here on Earth is there are only a finite number of available souls, and the live human population keeps growing. 1968 was the last year where there were an adequate number of souls to stuff one in each new born body. In the 41 years since then, each year there are more humans born and a few less old souls to go around as stocking stuffers.

This leave more and more humans each year born without souls. And the frightening thing is these soullesss humans tend to become CEOs, Politicians, Army Generals, Navy Admirals, Pederastic Priests, Police, Politicians – you know, professions with no moral codes. But the preponderance of them become Bankers.

And since more and more of the new born soulless create more and more Bankers who then feed in the same financial waters, they’ve proliferated so much they’ve turned on each other in a financial feeding frenzy like pirate piranhas, and they’ve devoured our national economical foundation leaving us in financial electro-shock therapy.

So I think we need to develop a new born baby test to see which ones are soulless. We could isolate the soulless ones and give them extra special Ethics classes, then forbid them to enter any profession that requires morals.

Or maybe we just kill all the Bankers and use them as fertilizer and toilet paper testers.
