Tom Sarbeck replied to James Healey's discussion What is the purpose of sex? in the group Conservative Atheists
"Joan, I checked CA's Penal Code and see provisions on age differences but nothing on whether pregnancy results. With a bit more enthusiasm I would find the date of the SC case, the dates of changes in the laws, and the text of older laws. In my…"

"The story said the boy's parents had insisted on a statutory rape charge. Their motive? Before I venture a guess, I would want to know the penalties of the various applicable laws. The story didn't say whether the DA had wanted to charge…"

"Sam, if you are still checking responses to your seven-month-old post.... First, some context. I see many "leftist" policies as soft-headed and many "rightist" policies as hard-hearted. Your analyses above are incomplete enough…"

"Thanks, Joan, I don't remember where I first heard of a one-cell mutation that evolved to eyes. It might have been in a comment about Dawkins' explanation. I don't know who once said, evolution is wasteful. It is; for every mutation…"

"Richard Dawkins demonstrates the evolution of the eye "Creationists and supporters of Intelligent Design like to point to what they call the "irreducible complexity" of the eye as proof of the existence of a designer/creator. In other…"

"Oh dear, the "the law was intended to minimize the number of children on welfare, not protect a child from predatory adults! That needs to be clarified.  "

"Oh, I see what you are saying. Writing, as I did, implied design. Oh my goodness, NO! That is not what I meant. Thank you for catching this. The very last thing I want to convey is a design by a designer. Thank you!"

"Tom, in a very young Richard Dawkins video, "The Royal Institution Lectures for Children: Growing up in the Universe", he explained to children how the nerve cell evolved that was sensitive to light and how it changed over time within and…"

"More. Warning! Metaphors Ahead! I'm not picking on you, Joan. During twelve years in Catholic schools, nuns and priests had poured so much "concrete" around what they'd planted that the first fractures required a traumatic event.…"

Tom Sarbeck replied to James Healey's discussion What is the purpose of sex? in the group Conservative Atheists
"Uh-oh, Joan, are you saying "our reason for having eyes is to see"? That eyes have a purpose? I would have said, "I see because I have eyes", I hear because I have ears; I breathe and smell because I have a nose, etc. I'll…"

Joan Denoo replied to James Healey's discussion What is the purpose of sex? in the group Conservative Atheists
"Why do we have eyes? To see, of course. There is no value statement in this, it is just fact.  Why do we have ears? To hear.  Why do we have noses? To breathe and smell.  Why do we have mouths? To eat, drink, and breathe.  Why do…"

"Re statutory rape. Some years ago in California, an adult woman raped an underage boy (yes, it sometimes happens). The boy's parents wanted the woman charged with statutory rape. The case went to the state supreme court, which held that the…"

"Awesome topic James, I agree with much of what is already written here, but here's my perspective: - Sex is the most important act we perform; creating and raising the next generation of those who are like us is the most important thing we…"

"The problem is the leftists have made it our business. We have to pay for the offspring of other people's sex because of the welfare/entitlement state. We have to pay to take care of other people's Veneral diseases thanks to…"

Hello James, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with its freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and pervasive religions are used to control vulnerable superstitious people including defenceless children; how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.

Yo, A.T.:
Lots of syllables in your intro there. I know epistemology, theodicy and the like. Prefer to discuss philosphy in everyday English. Talk to me.
