Is there any intrinsic value in perpetuating the human species? Why have kids? What's the point? We are all going to die and will not be alive to witness the lives of future generations anyway. And whatever gains are made will be lost when the sun burns out in one billion years and the Earth becomes vaporized as the sun expands. And even if humans manage to leave the solar system, the universe itself will either expand and dissipate as the rule of Enthropy, or it will implode into a massive black whole, distroying any humans. So, why bother to have kids? Why do we automatically assume that reproduction is a good thing?
