Mills of the gods

Mills of the gods

For the first time in history there are more people alive than dead. In other words, the majority of people who have ever lived on the earth are alive today. There are about 6 billion people alive today so that means that we will eventually add six billion people to the rolls of the dead. If we continue to die at the present pace, how much will our popuulation growth have to slow down in order for the quantity of dead to catch up with the living ? Doesn't it seem to you that logically there should be more dead people than living people ? Wouldn't proper world balance require such a thing ?
