Yet again, just when you think you've seen and heard it all...

 

How on earth can someone non-existant give consent to being born? I can only say he must be mad.

He's not alone, he's part of a movement that is against having children because they say people are only born to suffer. Basically this is just a product of the selfishness of this world and the way children are grown up believing they are the center of the universe.

 

If I were the judge I would solve this by giving that idiot a big fine for hindering the judicial system with stupid claims.

It is true that the antinatalist movement is against having babies, because they believe procreation is morally wrong.

 

Is this man an antinatalist? I don't think he fits the definition unless it is a new radical form of antinatalism.

Yes

Quote from Matilda, a brilliant West End musical:

 

“One can hardly move for beauty and brilliance these days

It seems that there are millions of these one-in-a-millions

These days

Special-ness seems de rigueur

Above average is average—go figure

Is it some modern miracle of calculus

That such frequent miracles don't render each one un-

Miraculous?”

"a vast amount of human misery could be avoided by people simply not existing in the first place."

 

Well, yes.  That would include the misery he is now causing his parents if he didn't exist, I guess.  So he has a point there.

 

Just shows another slant to satan's agenda against Jehovah's original purpose.

There's a supposed to be a  fine line between madness and insanity. I someone made that fine line wide enough to walk on. 

 

Both are defined the same: The state of having a serious mental illness...With that in mind, I'm thinking we are focusing on the wrong thing here. Everyone wants to point the finger at the young person who is upset with his parents, but do we ask why he is upset with them in the first place? Perhaps he is merely a product of his environment, yet he is the only one being called the "bad guy" here.

Basically what I'm saying is that there's more than likely more than this story than meets the eye. We simply don't have all the information. Still, despite that, many would be quick to call him "mentally ill", like the state of being ill makes him the villain. Sure, suing his parents for bringing him into this world isn't logical, but that is an action, and not a state of being.

@Bjern true but just the idea of suing ones parents , to me seems crazy.

I agree with you, the anti-natalist have a strange philosophy however this guy is taking it one step further by suing his parents,  it is bringing a lot of attention to their cause.

Are we drifting into a completely different subject?

Depends why the young person is doing this. I can't imagine a child doing this to loving parents who were never abusive.

Yes you're right!

We don't know whether he is seeing psychologist or psychiatrist? :lol1:

Perhaps he would "need a physician" (Mark 2:17). Not sure how that is funny however.

Everybody has a different sense of humor, if this is not to your liking, than no need to re-hush the quote...

I am not here to defend my sense of humor to everybody...:whistling:Please move on....:hugs:
