Considering that sex is one of the main staples of human existence, why would a person put their eternal soul, which there is no evidence to suggest it exists, ahead of life, that they have now?
Sometimes I wonder if people post those kinds of comments here, just to get someone to argue with them, or are they so uninformed that they really believe what they are saying?
Is it really logical and rational that we are born to spend our lives preparing ourselves for how our 'souls' will exist after we are dead? If the ultimate is a soul in eternity in some sort of imaginary paradise, then why not just have souls that go immediately to the final place, and skip all this earthly stuff?
Could our forefathers, who dreamed up these scenarios, have found their lives so meaningless, that the only way they could cope was to imagine that they would have something better when they died?
I am asking the questions, but I don't know the answers, nor does anyone else, though many claim to have the whole thing figured out.
That was a good post, Booots.

Point of contention: we know the answers. It's stupid to imagine a deity is concerned with our sex lives and that the social stigma attached to behavior will follow us into the afterlife. These are social rules that exist to reinforce cultural values, norms and mores - to create social hierarchies with which we can place people.

They have nothing to do with an afterlife and everything to do with in group/out group.

No, I don't claim that debating is what "I" do here, because since I came here this place has been a constant attack and defend situation, which was occurring before I came.

I would like to see some serious debate.

I am also very concerned about the harm and hurt that you have suffered in your life, and I hope you can resolve some of the issues so that those old wounds heal.

I have been very seriously mentally ill, and am still diagnosed as chronically suffering from the same illnesses, but I have been stable for about 12-13 years, and I hope that will continue for the rest of my life.

I had one of the worst life experiences I would have ever imagined happen to me, just 6 years ago, and I did not relapse during that, so I think I might be able to handle most other things that life throws at me. To date my experience in 2006 was the worst event of my life, 2nd only to the relatively sudden and tragic death of my brother in 1963. I have recovered from both of those events, and I do not ever want to endure again what I went through either time.

I hope that you can heal from your tragic event, and perhaps find some humanity within you so that you can again treat others with some form of kindness.

No man should ever treat a woman the way that man treated you, and though I am a man, and I have faced many temptations to take advantage of the vulnerability of a woman less physically strong than me, I never did that, nor would I ever want to.

Even if you support the believers on this site, and don't agree with the non-believers, we are all human beings, and we all have a right to be treated the same. This is a discussion site; it is not a battle zone.

I was wondering the same thing. He is known as an attractive man, and a great actor, but he also had a period when he sort of got a reputation because he was caught and reported soliciting a prostitute, which should have been no one's business other than his and the prostitute. My curiosity is aroused as to which part of him you remind him/her of.:)

I've found, that during times of grief, you will often find out just how little most people really have things figured out. When faced with death or the death of a loved one, atheist will often seek God and Christians will often deny Him. Most people truly don't have it all figured out at all Booots.

For the same reason we hide a lot if things from kids, they're kids.... To protect them & let them enjoy a nice, safe, nurtured childhood.
Would you tell them that you weren't really listening when they rambled on for 20 minutes about some cartoon?
Would you tell them that you deliberately took out the batteries of that damned noisy play gun that grandpa got, just to have quiet?
Would you show them your adult toys or movies?
Would you show them your ass & explain how you like it fingered and why?
Would you shower with your kid?
No, you don't hide anything from them, you lie to them and tell them some things are taboo just because you think they are. Your battery example is just you being dishonest and selfish, then expecting them to learn without instruction. That's going to raise complete idiots instead of teaching them anything.
