These were kids close in age having sex under the legal age of consent. If you say that they cannot consent, then what you’re saying is that these girls having babies or miscarriages never actually existed despite the whole school knowing who they were, or you are saying that the girls are ALSO gui...

“Human experience is fallible and cannot be trusted” is, ironically, a pretty iron-clad argument for why we should disbelieve people who claim that they have a magical invisible imaginary friend that totally exists but they can’t prove it. Some theists have hallucinated a religious experience. Some...

Minors absolutely CAN and DO give consent. Don’t confuse what is legally ALLOWED and what is real-life, actually POSSIBLE. There is a difference. I'm sorry, but this is a really regressive frame of mind. Minors cannot give consent to have sex with adults. Perhaps a minor might think that they can, ...

Or men and women with good sense can just go on having sex and ignore ridiculous, unreasonable standards. There is such a thing as living apart from or above the influence: men who make the choice not to force women, and women who think explicit consent who think men begging for sex are weak and st...

The last quote is true because nothing can be claimed to be knowledge without it being known with absolute certainty. Human beings by themselves cannot make knowledge claims because the fallibility of the human mind, first of all, prevents anything from being reliably understood as absolutely known...

I think you don't like the premise and didn't answer the questions because you're smart enough to see a few steps ahead in the argument, you might accidentally say something very similar to my position. And what would that be? that one might think that a person going to a club might be more likely ...

You keep avoiding the question of mens rea and falling back on the same one-liners. Do you think mens rea should not apply for sexual crimes? Intention and awareness can always be a point in trying to prove guilt or innocence, but it should not be the entirety of deciding if a sexual crime happened...

Ok, but Mikah does make some good points. I haven’t had a large number of partners, but I rarely got anywhere with women by asking for consent. It didn’t take me long to figure out why, either. Asking for consent when a woman is already willing to have sex comes across as begging for it. At least wi...

Human instinct is really just reason working behind the scenes. I see it more as an expected result of evolution. The kind of animals that are thought not to be capable of anything resembling reason behave in the ways they do because of what we call instinct. A fly doesn't think about the situation...

The necessity of God lies in epistemology. I had to look that term up, but the definition I found wasn't at all plain, and seemed to me to be very muddled. So I've abandoned trying to figure out what you mean by that sentence. The problem of doubt is there’s really no such thing as absolutely doubt...

What's wrong with just seeing humans as one of "family" of the world's life forms? I'm not sure what you mean by 'wrong' here, but I'm guessing it's just easier to exploit others when you paint them as something inherently "different" and "worse". So this is more matte...

^ I would say that a good scientist doesn't conclude anything as an absolute. Even with the best available scientific rigour, there's always at least a crumb of doubt which a scientist respects. But we usually get away with it when we translate pure science into applied science - technology. Invent...

^ have another look at the OP - the last three paragraphs are all about comparing science to religion and end with a call to reject science and “get on your knees and pray” Despite what the OP says, one can pray, and still trust in science I think it's more about how far you can trust in either, wh...

AngelRho, let's say I buy a car and it turns out to be a lemon. And, the salesperson used all sorts of manipulative and pressure tactics as well. Should we go back to the old days and force people to be stuck with it or should I be able to get the money back? With a car certain protections are in p...
