Please post the name of any African country where the population is decreasing. Our population is set to double by 2050 and is the fastest growing population in the world.

Africa - Africa’s Population Set to Double by 2036

Your worries are better placed elsewhere.

Learn to comprehend English. I didn't say that populations are decreasing. I said that if you don't get your famines, civil wars, and health problems under control, they will be.

You said the entire population would be killed off. If a population is going to drop to zero it has to decrease along the way doesn't it? I understand that Americans don't do very well at math but yeah that's basic knowledge.

I stand by my statement. Africa can't feed or medically care for the people it already has within it's borders, and you expect that as those populations grow, famine and disease won't take it's toll? The only reason population is growing is due to the foreign aid you seem to detest.

Hey, I'm all for pulling out of Africa, closing the borders, and letting Ebola burn out while your citizens starve to death because there is no more food supply from outside Africa. Have fun with that.

Really? Please provide proof that our growth is due to foreign aid. It's clear that you just like to make things up and wallow in ignorance instead of having any actual knowledge base. You could actually read that article I posted to find out why our population is growing and then perhaps you'd write some posts where you share something other than made up facts and figures.

You got called out for weak math skills and weaker logical reasoning but at least we agree missionaries like you should stay home.

I'm not a missionary--where on earth did you get that idea? Do you think that the only volunteers in teh world are missionaries?

I also didn't say your growth was due to foreign aid. i said that if it wasn't for foreign aid, you'd have a lot more disease and starvation. Your current Ebola situation proves that. Add in AIDS medication and food for areas in severe drought, well, you get the picture.

So not only do you make things up. You also can neither remember nor reread something you just posted. Intelligence of a doorknob.

You love to twist things to try to make a point, don't you. Guess what, it's not working.

Thinks back about the streets of Munich and Paris and notes that the most aggressive street beggars there were white.

As for Africa, it doesn't have a food problem; it has a food distribution problem. More effective road and train networks would help a lot. As would the reduction of tariffs on food imports.
