Did Elon Musk Defend Humanae Vitae? Sex Without Procreation is “Absurd,” Tesla CEO Says

Whoa! 😱 What do you think of this?

Tesla and SpaceX co-founder and CEO Elon Musk defended the central concepts of Humanae Vitae in a 2019 Lex Fridman interview.

Musk reportedly does not consider himself religious, and may not even realize that he defended Catholic teaching.

However, he definitely suggests he does not believe in contraception, one of the basic principles of Pope St. Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical, which confirmed the Catholic Church’s long-standing teaching against contraception, abortion, and sterilization.

The conversation between Musk and Fridman centers on artificial intelligence, but in a 34-second clip, Musk explains why sex without procreation is “silly.”

“Massive amount of thinking–like truly stupendous amount of thinking–has gone into sex without purposewithout procreation. Which is actually quite a silly action in the absence of procreation. It’s a bit silly,” Musk says.

“Why are you doing it? Because it makes the limbic system happy? That’s why. It’s pretty absurd, really.”

This is not the first time Musk spoke positively of procreation. The 50-year-old Tesla CEO told Independent in 2020 that “people need to have more babies.”

“I think babies are super cool and really people need to have more babies because, it sounds obvious, but if people don’t have enough babies, humanity will disappear,” he said.

Musk has six living children of his own: five with his first wife, and one with his second. His first child died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) at 10 weeks of age.

Say a prayer for Elon Musk!
