At cross-purposes with G-d?


The following midrash (which is based on the language of Bereishit 6:18) raises interesting philosophical problems:

"When the world is suffering and destroyed, one may not procreate, so as not to build while Gd is involved in destroying the world."

(Midrash Tanchuma Noach 11)

Have a great day,
