We could nuke them, which would end their suffering in milliseconds. Oh, but we are all about life, so we feed them just enough so that they can breed more starving children and increase the misery in the world. If we baptized the children and then killed them, they would go to heaven wouldn't they? Would you be showing love by ending their suffering and sending them to heaven, or would you be a monster because you did not let them suffer longer and die in pain and agony? Sorry, just the old Nazi in me from my youth coming through. I wish that there were not times that it made more sense than religion.That is already an untenable solution and further you assume two things, this would end suffering and you haven't been dehumanized yourself. The growing modern corporate-techocapitalism that is simply the most dominating, out of control ideological force in history simultaneously dehumanizes and represses.
Your nukes are the very product of this calculable dehumanizing process in virtue of technology.
First point - no, it would not end suffering. It would only end the suffering for however many million that we killed. If we could up that to a couple of billion, that would end a lot of suffering, but not all of it. As to dehumanizing, you make it sound like being a human is a good thing. Personally I think that rats have us beat. To be honest, I don't think that there are many things more disgusting than humans. The beauty of this from a moral perspective is that no matter how many millions that you kill, you are still alive to be forgiven. However, if you simply kill yourself and spare the rest of the world, then you cannot be forgiven. What a dilemma that religion has created. Figure out the age of reason. Baptize all of the poor and starving under that age and then kill them. Instant Salvation for millions! Next, kill all those that want to be martyrs. Instant salvation for more millions (although a my guess would be that most of them would chicken out when the found out that one was all too willing to grant their wish). If you could grant instant Salvation to that many people, you could become the second most holy person to walk the earth. Only Jesus would be greater. You would have saved more people than any apostle, any evangelist, any Church Father, any Pope, any priest, and you would only violate one commandment doing it. Since no body other than Jesus is perfect, all of the former have violated at least one commandment, too. Yet, have they done so much good doing so?
Perhaps I should stop thinking about this. It is starting to sound to good to be true. Maybe you are right and it is untenable.
Second point - you say that as though I should care. I don't.
