The elements were orderd and directed by the power of God and his Word and they obeyed at once. What we think would take a lot of time naturally does not take its time when God says for it to be.

Good idea.
It was research on pedophilia which got me interested in Evolution in the first place.
Evolution disfavors pedophilia, and that is why I say that pedophilia is an aberration.
Pedophilia is never found among animals in the wild.
The closest exception is in the bonobo species, in which adult males hump emerging female juveniles.
Even then, the adult males do not penetrate, and they continue to show preference for mature females.
Creationists can call this a "just-so story" if they wish, but it is apparent that healthy relationships prevailed throughout most of our evolutionary past. Men, women, boys, and girls spent their entire lives in the company of men, women, boys, and girls. They therefore related with men, women, boys, and girls and men, women, boys, and girls should be related to.
The nuclear family system messed all this up. Children grew up lacking younger siblings or younger cousins to nurture, so they grew up to be pedophiles.
This is all validated in intercultural study. Where boys and girls are free to relate with each other, sexual abuse is unknown. Examples are the Trobriand tribe of Melanesia (Malinowski [1927] 1953: 55, 57; 1929: 55) and the Muria tribe of India (Currier 1987). In cultures where boys and girls are kept separate, sexual abuse of children is common. Examples include Balinese society (Mead 1949: 72, 106; 1973: 138) and societies with practice ritual sexual abuse (Muensterberger 1967).
For anyone still preferring to turn to the Bible as a solution to sexual abuse, I suggest starting with Song of Solomon 8:8.

Well... I'm not sure how the Nuclear Family is the cause of pedophilia, but I suspect the isolation of that family may cause more incest.

There was a lot of debate over the sexuality of Alexander the Great after that last movie came out. I suspect that ancient Greeks practiced a degree of isolation between men and women but not to the point of commonly endorsing pedophilia. Well, maybe a movie is just a movie but......

And you're a petty troll, so don't bother me if you can't put up a rational argument.

Meanwhile my observations on obsessive-compulsive behavior stand and you can provide all the demonstrations of that you wish, but I'm going back to the debate on Evolution unless someone wants to produce a rational argument.

I gave a civil poster a civil response. Besides, it is on topic as far as practical applications of Evolutionary theory are concerned. If you think it's inconsequential, tell us why.

Who says that I endorse either behavior? I simply group them together as alternative sexual lifestyles that do not result in procreation.
You can't win this because you'll have to compromise the gay issue to stay free of the pedophile issue. I'm betting that you're going to embrace pedophilia before you'll ever give up on gay political issues.
You serve your master.
What? Why and how would you have to "compromise the gay issue"?

You keep makaing incredibly stupid and indefensible claims. Like a train wreck it is hard to ignore you level of hatred and idiocy.

Do you think pedophilia is a evolutionary thing? Inherited...OOhh, come to think of it that's really creepy.

I just can't think how pedophilia relates to evolution or creationism.

Are you a pedophile, or a recovering one? Do you belong to NAMBLA.

No. If you'd read, you'd see that I was stating the opposite.

Now you're bound to your master. You're shaming pedophilia and your master won't have it. Your freedom is gone forever.
