What? The art you see in the universe is a product of an entity's expression of creativity, how do you know it's not sexual?
I fail to see your point.

Still nothing, perhaps you linked the incorrect post?
Your post there:

"1. Does it cause human suffering.

2. It does cause human suffering.

3. We don't want human suffering therefore it is unethical.

There, scientific enough for you?"

By your own post, you refer to ethics with your point number 3.

Yes, it's presenting a reason why something is unethical, still failing to see your point.

That's not surprising. If you were a woman you would understand the sensuality involved in creating art of any kind. It's not all that different than creating a child or an orgasm. The inspiration strikes and must be acted upon while the muse still possesses you, otherwise nothing comes to fruition, IOWs, frustration instead of satisfaction.

By presenting a reason why something is unethical, does that imply you are invoking some sort of ethics?

What is your boundary for ethical or unethical testing (Step 4 of the scientific method)?

So .. you don't think there are female asexuals? Interesting:

From what I've seen on the internet, ad hominem attacks are declared when someone calls you an insulting name.

But that's just being a jerk.

However, you have put forth a legitimate ad hom attack. Umm, congrats?

I never said that I don't believe that there are women who are not interested in having sex.

Female sexuality has nothing to do with you.

Natural processes, of course.

If you're going to use that premise to argue that there really was a Flood, that will be nothing new.
We've already heard that many cultures believed in dragons.
If you're going to use that premise to argue that dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time, that will be nothing new.
No! I wasn't arguing any such thing. I was just making a point about the ancient symbol that Nimrod/Marduk took and it was the dragon emblem and it has been seen all over the world. No I don't believe there was any literal real dragon involved in that history.

We know that Greek was written in the area where Jesus was crucified LUKE 23:38 and they the Greeks must have had some role in the event.

Do you deny that female asexuals exist? Asexuality is simply having no desires for sexual activity, no sexual attractions, and no pleasure from sexual activity, it has nothing to do with male or female by definition. So if you classify female and male asexuals differently then it proves you are being dishonest, it also demonstrates you know nothing about sexuality as a whole.

Everyone has a set of ethics. Ethics are subjective, based on social pressures and genetic traits inherited, developed through natural selection. We lump them together and call them ethics.

There were lots of people named Jesus, and many still have that name today. So?

Drunks and junkies are alive when they have those hallucinations. I think its unfair to compare them to a person who is temporarily dead until they are medically revived via CPR or other methods.
'...why is it that every single religious belief produces vastly different NDEs?'
It might be that God lets souls experience the after-life in a way that won't make them doubt their religion when they re-enter their bodies. For example, if a Muslim dies and experiences a Christian Heaven and then returns to his body, he probably wouldn't want to tell his fellow Muslims that Heaven is a Christian Heaven. If he does, he might be beaten up and/or killed.
Oh, that's handy then innit? But as it happens many NDE's also involve people merely feeling as if they are walking around their own bodies and don't get anywhere near heaven. This alone of course falsifies your claim that all NDE's are about the Christian version of heaven. Unfortunately those out of body experiences also happen to all rely on subjective rather than objective evidence.

The Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland has put Intelligent Design back into the equation.
The Big Bang theory is still valid but the Higgs Boson Particle actualy existed before the Big Bang and was the spark that sent the Big Bang in a predetermined course, so the science reflects.
It is now possible to see before the Big Bang and determine the existence of other dimensions.
Basically the Higgs Boson was the blue print for everything that was to be from the farthest stars location to your hair color. Yes. It even allowed for evolution as we are now finding out.
So you can look at Creationism creating Evolution. Who the creator is, no-one knows, but we do now know that the Higgs Boson Particle was a tool used to set our little slice of reality into preplanned motion. It's incredible.
