RE: Is there a reason why xtian families have a bazillion kids?
I was scanning some 'news' online yesterday during lunch and ran across an article about a couple (in Michigan I think) who are expecting #13. They have 12 sons from 22 down to baby. They didn't mention Quiverfull but did say they are Catholic.

If ya can't recruit enough of them guess ya have to breed enough of them. Dodgy

They have to "outbreed the muslims"[1].

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Well I guess that might be called a point....

Yeah, I saw that article too. As soon as I saw the headline I said "let me guess... Super religious" yep Facepalm

Same after the move to agriculture.

No different as cities started to grow.

Nothing to do with religion.

In-group-ness evolved as a protection mechanism and this behaviour then became codified and ritualised.

This ain't rocket surgery.

The more interesting question is ... why wouldn't atheists have a bazillion kids?

Atheists tend to be more educated which has a pattern of leading to less procreation, they also are less likely to adhere to traditions which can result in producing these old big families.

It's largely Catholics among the Christians that still really produce the high family rates. I suppose Mormons and Amish can be considered apart of that group too. They also have desires to reproduce to keep up their enclosed cultures.

RE: Is there a reason why xtian families have a bazillion kids?
I remember this Christian leaflet I once read and it mentioned families with many children and how condoms are a sin and how we should be helping those families.

They featured a family with 12 children, trying to make you feel sorry for them, not having the money they need to raise them.

Oh but wait! The particular organization handing out the leaflets helped such families. You know, as long as they were Christians.
