As long as the parameters I gave were followed (safe sex, consensual adults, no other relationship commitments) what is the harm? In fact, I think much good can come from learning about sex first-hand and not fetishizing it the way we do now.
Who's "we"?

What part of "They are among the most accurate (in technical terms, reliable and valid) of all psychological tests and assessments." can;t you understand?
...
The only part I don't understand is why you continue to ignore the facts on the matter and cling to an unsupported claim like this. They are not, you are buying into stereotyping and unsubstantiated claims.

OK. I said "Science teaches us what the universe is & what it consists of, but current science is far too ignorant to tell us that."
Then you said:
"Science never made claim to know everything (scientists haven't)."
umm.... When did I say "everything"?
You didn't.

I did.

The fact that science is looking for answers precludes ignorance (of the willful variety).

Contrast that with religion.

If your god exists, and is everything it is claimed to be by its believers (omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent)...
Then its already made its mind up.
Some will die and go to Heaven.
Some will die and go to Hell.
By design.
And there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it.
Why would such a being need to "judge" anything when omniscience is one of its qualities?
Cause you gotta rout for Georgia ir Alabama one?

Eh? Are you saying that a person who is unconscious has never had a conscious?
What?

You do know what being unconscious is don't you?

That's true.
Guess I spoke outta hand.
Why would a god wanting to "save" everyone utilize a deluge to wipe the planet clean of the "unsaved" before there was a "savior"?
Zat better?
And on top of that, it didn't even work!

Society. Don't you think society fetishizes sex too much? America in particular is so morally uptight. My French relatives are always making fun of Americans and their moral hypocrisy (although the French certainly have issues of their own).

No.
So I get to go to heaven even though I don't believe Jesus was a sacrificial messiah?

Read it again, Jethro.
My intention, RR, was to point out that there's difference between saying "We think we know" and "We know".

They may not have called themselves that.
IIRC, not per se, no.

Although guess what the first capital in the Western World was to have a Jewish Lord Mayor?

Yup, Dublin.

Bobby Briscoe, in 1956.

When Yogi Berra heard about an Irish Jewish Lord Mayor, he famously commented: "Only in America"...

Even at that, Briscoe wasn't the first Jewish Mayor - one William Annyas was elected Mayor of Youghal, County Cork, in 1555.

I knew two Jewish kids, growing up - the Flaherty twins. Nobody gave a damn that I remember.

Oh, and my little-old-lady-Jewish neighbor, a coupla years back, told me "Oh, Ireland? Safest place in the world to be Jewish. Christians all busy killing each other."

Truly, no-one gives a sh!t.

The word "made" was spontaneously omitted.
Apologies.
I hate spontaneous omissions.
