if god said reproduce on the earth and keep on doing, wouldn't the earth become overcrowded?

and with the animals as well, they have to reproduce too. nature's balance makes it possible for everything too work as it does. things die and things be born.

I want to know what gods plan was for the earth before the fall, when he said fill the earth and multiply, and the animals, surely the earth would have become overcrowded, because nothing would eat anything.

    Not if he took the reproduction ability away from people. He gave it, he can take it away.

    He said "fill" the earth not over-fill. Animals would be born and die since they did not have eternal live. God's plan will be fulfilled according to hundreds of prophecies (here on earth).

    (Psalm 37:11) But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

    (Psalm 37:29) The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it.

    Depends on what century you live in.

    In 2000 BC, overcrowding = 10,000,000 people

    In 1000 AD, overcrowding = 200,000,000 people

    In 2000 AD, overcrowding = 7,000,000,000 people

    There are a lot of people whining about how many people there are, and they're too stupid to look at China, India and Indonesia to see just how easy it is to fit 2x or 3x more people easily in their own area.

    When you have free time go to the Tondo neighborhood in the Philippines (in Manila). There are about 72,000 people per square kilometer.

    Nowadays yes, because healthcare is improving so there are less deaths. But then there would be so many people there would be riots, we'd run out of food, gas and other resources, so in the end, we'd all die.

    That's actually starting to happen now.

    7 billion people. :0

    God didn't mean do it forever. Read your Bible and see what it is really saying.

    That part of his proposal has now been achieved. Man has subdued the planet.

    I've always wondered at what point we could hang a large "Mission Accomplished" banner and ask, now what?

    Just one more example of how the Bible does not apply today and should not be taken literally.
