We were discussing the Gnostic belief that this material world is evil. A friend of mine asked why, if that's the case, don't Gnostics just commit suicide and escape this world? After we cleared that up, then she wondered why they would have sex and thereby risk bringing more people into this evil material world.

But my point in posting it was just that it was funny at the time and, as you noted, pretty much non-sensical out of context.
