    Good point. Some of the worst human atrocities, like during and after war, expanded the victor’s gene pool. One study claims that one man in 200 on earth has descended from Genghis Khan.

    While looking for more recent studies, I ran across a couple more interesting ones discovering a significant loss of diversity of Y chromosomes, likely due to…[Read more]

    as crude as that will sound to many people still naturally feeling their strong shoulds and shouldn’ts.

    I’m not so sure that the feelings of shoulds and shouldn’ts is necessarily a naturally occurring one – at least not when it comes to sexual pleasure. It seems there are probably very few moral imperatives (such as p…[Read more]

    Fair point.

    WHO created the universe? I know it is god who did it. Who else is powerful enough to do that? Anyways sumthin can’t come from nuthin. Atheists just like to be contrary…either that or they’re communists.

  • Unseen started the topic Inception in the forum Atheism 1 hour, 53 minutes ago

    “Inception” is just a fancy word for a beginning.

    When we let theists frame a discussion as one about “the creation of the universe,” we have let ourselves be led into a trap, because “creation” does tend to imply a “creator.”

    If we  say, “You mean the inception of the universe,” we are reframing the discussion into one that doesn’t presume or…[Read more]

     scientifically that such strong social connections in fact enhance survival in some species

    And of course the opposite. Sexual harassment and abuse, an extremely toxic and malicious by-product of human sexual behavior, no doubt does mostly the opposite. May pass on genes but for most cases in human history, in a less than ideal or beneficial way…[Read more]

    It seems obvious that there is an evolutionary bias toward sexual relations that can pass along genes, anything else is frivolous in a sense Humans evolved to be sexual WELL outside of their fertile zones. So yeah, you could call it “frivolous” in that sense but it has numerous other benefits than simple procreation. Passing on the…

    Here is an article “Is Gender a social construct”? from  Sunday school Dec. 1st.  Like most debates or arguments it is often down to the meaning we assign to words.

    it has numerous other benefits than simple procreation

    It’s now about people (and say, bonobos) enhancing their social connections to each other via sexual pleasure, as crude as that will sound to many people still naturally feeling their strong shoulds and shouldn’ts. I would bet that some day it will even be provable scientifically…[Read more]

    I don’t understand why evolution would select for sexual fluidity.

    I think most people, by nature, take their own inclinations/orientations for granted, unless prejudiced early on by culture. Not just for granted in fact, but as a primal essence of their self, when given the opportunity to be their genuine self. Growing up, I…[Read more]
