He's got me outnumbered 346-2. Anyone close?

Could anything be more irresponsible? Opinions please.

And ..... best comments/jokes on this dude's name will win a prize. Should be fun.

I'll start - His wife obviously didn't think it was Yuk.

To be fair Cog he is really only responsible for 13 of the 346. Not like he can tell them not to do it. He cant even remember their names.

@OP: I guess with me he has me outnumbered "undefined". 346 ÷ 0. Unless you want to count that they were alive at one time, then like you it is 346 ÷ 2. And then if you want to count the fact my wife was about 15 weeks pregnant, then it is 346 ÷ 3.

Well apparently this guy found a lot of women that did not find his semen yucky. Perhaps more lucky?

Okay, that was so bad people might find it funny simply because its so bad?

@LogicForTW: Well apparently this guy found a lot of women that did not find his semen yucky.

I'm guessing that he got all of his 13 kids off the same woman. She would have been constantly pregnant from marriage to menopause, and after 13 children she'd probably have lost her teeth and be a prime candidate for osteoporosis. What a life.

Probably should of read the article. I incorrectly assumed he fathered 346 children. (ASSUME makes an ASS out of U and ME) Okay: just me because you called me on it, but then the spelling does not work ;)

Quote from the article:

"Pavel Semenyuk, 87, always dreamed of a large family and was thrilled when his wife gave birth to 13 children."

It is not hard to get a willing fertile female partner pregnant. That is what happens when you have lots of unprotected sex. He probably could be a little proud that his wife gave birth to that many health children and raised them all.

And then those kids going on to have an average of over 9 kids each as well. He even admits to not being able to remember the names of all his descendants.

30 of the children go to the same nearby school. There would be no bullying or messing with any of those kids with so many family members around hah!

This guy really does highlight the scary fact of human population growth, one couple more or less responsible for 346 people in the world in 65 years, (a guess based on when he started having kids based on his stated age of 87.) And at current rates, the man will be responsible for over 1000 in 85 years.

There was a mother that gave birth to 69 children in Russia. Back in the 16th century, but the records are somewhat suspect.

@LogicForTW: This guy really does highlight the scary fact of human population growth

Genetic evidence points to a population bottleneck after the Toba eruption about 70K years ago, with some estimates suggesting that the human species was reduced to as few as 1,000 breeding couples. So the present population of the world is quite amazing.

Of course, the creationitwits claim that it's possible to get from one breeding pair to a population of 7 billion in about 6,000 years.

"Of course, the creationitwits claim that it's possible to get from one breeding pair to a population of 7 billion in about 6,000 years."

Well of course literally anything is possible if see scientific facts as subordinate to a deity wielding magic.

Ofcourse mathematically you

Ofcourse mathematically you can go from a single breeding pair to 7 billion in less than 2000 years if each fertile woman of breeding age (especially at the start!) had 8 or more kids each. (Based on death rates and average female fertility rates etc over that time.)

But numerous studies showing of generations of intense inscestious relationships (say the first 5 generations or so) would lead to crippling dna defects that would of doomed the entire human race to die out in the first 100 years or so.

I do not get creationist/absolutionist: they say they do not want to think that a chimp is our distant distant relative, but they have no problem with with a grandparent going back a mere 300 generations, (instead of potentially millions of generations for a chimp relative,) to have been the result of a sister and a brother, and then had more babies (with at best!) a first cousin, which in turn had babies (at best!) with a 2nd cousin as their lineage.

Creationist basically say: I would rather my lineage to come from my uncle also being my father, my aunt also being my mother. Rather than: a million generations ago a chimp carries a common ancestral pool as I do where neither the chimp nor the human was even recognizable as a chimp or a human, (that evolved later over thousands/millions of generations.)

Perhaps not surprisingly most family trees depicting adam and eve do not show adam and eve's kids paring off to have new kids. Instead saying stuff like "begot" and saying the family on average lived for ~900 years.

These absolutist probably do what they do best and not think much about it. Even if they try to say they have a big problem with chimps and bonobos etc are our very distant cousins separated by millions of generations.

Women in the West are just neglecting their duties. That's all I can take from this. You give a woman an education and suddenly she wants to be president.

I feel dirty and need a shower, the Daily Mail ffs. However I'm not sure if a man with over 200 great grandchildren whose name is semen-yuk hasn't rendered irony entirely redundant.

And yes I agree, with the human population explosion the largest problem we face in the 21st century such behaviour is deeply immoral. Sadly there are still people whose ego is so great they put their own desires ahead of the welfare of all else. The irreparable harm such behaviour does to the planet's environment is sadly now becoming all too evident.

I decide long ago that I would die childless. I have two nephews and a niece, and thanks to my wife's first marriage 6 grandchildren. Being a part of their lives has been and is a privilege, and I have no regrets.

If humans, and a great many other species, are to survive much longer, a change in attitudes is going to be required.
