David Benatar is the world’s leading ‘antinatalist’ philosopher. His controversial book ‘Better Never To Have Been’ argues that the suffering of existence always outweighs any potential good and that it is morally wrong to bring new human beings into the world. A small but growing community of Antinatalists believe that we should stop reproducing and allow humanity to go extinct.

Benatar engages with Christian philosopher Bruce Blackshaw on the myriad of questions raised by his philosophy and whether antinatalism is a logical consequence of his atheist perspective.
