  1. Malthus believed that the earth can only support a certain number of people.

    Technological advances in fertilizers and other agricultural practices are used to produce far more food than in Malthus's time. At this time, distribution of the food is a far bigger problem than growing it.

    It makes sense that even with technology, the natural resources of the earth can only sustain a certain number of people.
