    The genetic issue is minor. People with asperger's, disabilities and other diseases live productive lives. People with worthless parents lead unproductive, gutter-trash lives.

    And the whole point of reproduction is to eliminate poor genetic traits. Just because you have flaws doesn't mean they'll turn up in your children. Just don't go sleeping around with your parents and siblings.
    A vote for eugenics is a vote for the master race.

    I guess it's more a question of the severity of the disease. I would argue in terms of the resource consumption of the disease. Diseases that require constant drugs, medical care, etc are a burden on society. It is easy to not have kids and not pass on your diseases; there are no moral conflicts about it... unless you are Mormon I guess. OMG MORE BABIES

    You could still adopt. And in the case of mormons they're just retarded because like catholics they don't believe in contraception :rolleyes:

    While I would agree that mormons have a lot of children I don't think it is because they don't believe in contraception. The don't have the papal doctrine of catholicism dictating to them what they can and cannot do. They just have a lot of kids.

    Not all mormons have five wives... those are polygamists...

    Every polygamist is a mormon but not every mormon is a polygamist.

    I know. in most mormon churches now, they speak against polygamy, since they are against breaking the law, even for something they used to see as a personal freedom.

    Polygami only works if there is a lot of wars and all the men die, then it might be a good idea...

    I dunno about either... one wife is usually more than enough. Can you imagine having 2 or 3 wives who are all always telling you what to do, when to do it, how to drive, etc....

    Men aren't designed to have wives.

    The whole idea of polygamists is that they raise their wives. I wouldn't even necessarily say that all polygamists are mormon, I certainly lived next to an Arab polygamist growing up (exiled royalty) who certainly wasn't mormon. But they raise their wives, indoctrinate them into "roles." Their relationship with their wives is completely different to what you think of in a "modern" relationship.

    You are correct about the Muslim Polygamists. Didn't mean to make polygamists religiously exclusive, I was just trying to keep it in context. Most of the time when the word polygamist comes up people are talking about Mormons.

    As for the more than one wife thing... I highly doubt the benefits would outweigh the drawbacks.

    To secure population growth. It´s not really valid today, but I think the phenomenon of polygami followed times with lots of wars, historically speaking.

    Yes, polygamy and polyandry both occur in nature for a variety of reasons.
