For the rest, one is left to masturbate to porn, perhaps child porn (animated or not), and regular porn. That sucks, and there is nothing to do about it. Perhaps a compromise is having sex with a sleeping child without them knowing it (so, using sleeping medicine). If they dont notice it is difficult to see how they cud be harmed, even if it is rape. One must distinguish between rape becus the other was disconsenting (wanting to not have sex), and rape becus the other is not consenting, but not disconseting either (so, unaware of the action becus of sleep or coma or something like that). There is also the possibility of bodily harm that will be there after the person wakes up. This is especially the case with small children since their bodily openings are not large enuf for a regular sized male penis. To avoid this one shud not penetrate.

It was physics - and not God - that created the universe, according to scientist Hawking. Now, I wanted to put my question to him in this fashion on the main page, but it possibly might cause an uproar: "Stephan Hawking says God wasn't involved in creating the universe; it was physics. Well, Steve, if you know that much about the universe, then try getting out of your wheel chair!"

So in order to beat this evil occultic force you need a light occultic force you need an occultic force that is of the side of God of love on like almost like on the side of the Angels OK as opposed to the demons all right and so as a shaman I am like a multi-dimensional or hyper-dimensional being okay I am able to perceive multiple different frequencies of light beyond my five senses and it allows me to see into these other higher dimensions that these entities these pedophiles these rapists these murderers these really high up people that they almost like hide in the shadows in nobody can see that because the third eye ain't open okay and that's where things like fluoride and stuff like that comes in so the horns the horns are hey man you mess with the Buffalo you get the horns bro and if you ever tried messing with the Buffalo that doesn't work out too well for many people this right here this is coyote skin according to the Navajo the coyote is like the trickster almost like almost like a benevolent force so I'm wearing the skin of the trickster I got two tails here okay so the trickster messed with the bull got the horns okay and the face paint is representative of the Native American tradition of like donning on warpaint of some sort only this is only this is a war that is of like a spiritual nature okay so because it's a war of a spiritual nature you need symbolism okay in the symbolism here for me is you got the blood on the sign the bullet holes Q sent me this shows the the the secret war in the behind the scene. Hey if you don’t know who Q is Q is the highest levels of the military in the intelligence community disseminating above top secret information to pay attention to the republic so we can take our country back from globalists and communists and satanists.

WHITE POWER #racist rationalwiki.org

I am white and proud of my race. Hence my name "WHITE POWER".

I dont know why, but rationalwiki seems to have a thing against white nationalists.

Today, according to the latest U.S. Census - only 23% of the American population under the age of 18 is WHITE. Already, four U.S. states are MAJORITY NON-WHITE, and 10% of all counties in America are MAJORITY NON-WHITE. World-wide, White women of child-bearing age comprise only 3% of the earth's population. Do these FACTS disturb you? They should. Visit http://www.americannaziparty.com and http://www.stormfront.org.

The Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is an example of a deadly disease arising in animals deemed to be "unclean" by the Mosaic Law for human consumption, such as bats, snakes, cats and camels. In addition, developing countries in which basic needs — including hygiene — are poor, income is scarce, or are run by corrupt and/or atheistic cultures and governments there is often a history of poverty and famine; their societies in turn would develop a culture reflecting a wider variety of foods eaten (see: Atheism and economics). Where people consume such animals in poorly regulated food markets with poor health systems (see: Atheist hospitals in China and Atheism and medicine and Atheist hospitals) — especially if the food item is improperly prepared and cooked - a coronavirus can take hold in the human population and then spread rapidly to other people.

First of all, I have a biblical worldview. And Christianity is a world religion that started in the Eastern World.

Second, in 2000, there were twice as many non-Western Christians as Western Christians. Christianity is seeing rapid growth outside the Western World. And evangelical/pentecostal/biblical Christianity is growing in Western secular countries like the UK, France, Germany and NZ. In terms of geographic diversity, Christianity is far more diverse than atheism/agnosticism. Please take a look at my Christian songs from around the world page. Does RationalWiki have a atheism/agnosticism songs from around the world page? I think not! Atheism is a boring and depressiong religion that breeds despair and not joyous singing and choirs!

Third, the global market share of atheists/agnostics has dropped post 1970 (fall of the Soviet Union, etc.). Leading authorities like Pew Research, demographic scholars, etc. indicate that desecularization will not only occur in the world as a whole in the 21st century, but will happen in the Western World as well. Already, religious immigrants are pouring into the leading cities in the Western World. On top of this, religious fundamentalism is not only expected to grow in the world as a whole according to demographic scholars, but in the Western nations as well (Christian/Muslim fundamentalism).

Shabidoo, you are on the sinking ship. And the biblical Christianity fleet is growing.

FSTDT is now an utter circlejerk of hypocrisy

It is stunning that those who claim to champion free speech and equality have now:

-Shadowbanned -Deleted

Dissenting comments,

-Outright wanted to kill a POTUS (even when the same users would screech at any mention of Obama's assassination jokes)

-Openly wished death on the dissenting commenter, and blocked any negative comments.

You, the leftist Democrat morons have become THE true fascists. I'm not going to bother posting quotes because you would ignore them. But know what? You, and your divorce from reality will get Trump re-elected.

As for the "classic quotes":

When a leftist makes similar quotes in the other axis of the political spectrum, I often get responded with "one comment does not represent our movement".

>>If u have sex before marriage then in Gods eyes u are married to that person if a man rapes a woman in Gods eyes they are married it sucks for the girl but what can we do lol.<<

If you put this quote to a Christian website, I'm sure the rejection of its content would be same with the acrid leftist comments like "Castrate all white men so we destroy racism". But you all have to cherrypick the worst of Christian fundamentalists, while relentlessly supporting the globalist Democrat agenda. And strangely, Islam receives little attention while I know it destroyed many more lives than Christendom did. (The Conquistadors were supported by all non Aztec factions, and Aztecs were mass sacrificing assholes by the way, and I fairly cleanly remember around the end of Bush era, some of you were defending Aztec sacrifice as "those people felt honored!" and African slavery as "It was just indentured servitude" even though explorers clearly had reports of Kongo and Fan tribes sacrificing slaves)

I wonder if you are on the payroll or just brainwashed.

even Cuba is abandoning Communism, so how is your retarded system going? Trump won exactly because of "progressive" morons like you.

Our main problem here is propaganda fuelled miscegenation with imported negroes, not overseas white men playing around with the local girls, as they inevitably will.

Surely a white man that works to defend his land is a good white man, and the fact that he stuck his dick in a more than willing foreigner one time is utterly trivial.

Essay:Lol ATHEISTS are basically FLAT earthers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“We are all atheists about most of the earth shapes that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one shape further.”
— Probably not Richard Dawkins

Is a movement that aims to highlight the FACT that 100% of all evil-doers were believers that there is a planet earth (Earthists), and that if Non-Earthism (no belief in earth) was promoted, there would be no nationalism, no war for territory, much less evil etc. It also shows that over the centuries there have been many ideas as to what the shape of the earth is, therefore the only logical conclusion is Non-Earthism. Don't you find it funny that your beliefs about the earth (spherical earth and heliocentrism), just happen to be the only correct ones?

Earthism and Evil

100% of all evil has been done by earthists. People like Galileo and Giordano Bruno have suffered as a direct consequence of their particular earth shape beliefs. The act of indoctrinating children with earthism should constitute child abuse. Some of the deadliest wars have been fought as a result of earthism and nationalism.

Solutions to the Altruist's burden: the Quantum Billionaire Trick

Prerequisite concepts: Non-technical Introduction to the AI Deterrence Problem, And the winner is: Many-Worlds!

Followup to: The Altruist's Burden

One way to overcome the Altruist's burden problem is to stop being an altruist, to re-frame your impulses to help distant others as a bias rather than a preference. In the case of existential risks, there are additional reasons for doing this: firstly that the people who are helping you are the same as the people who are punishing you. (This is not the case for aid to the developing world). This is not an option that I personally like.

Another perfectly valid reaction is to just take the hit and accept that you will be taken advantage of as an altruist, but that it is worth it. This is also not an option that I personally like.

In this vein, there is the ominous possibility that if a positive singularity does occur, the resultant singleton may have precommitted to punish all potential donors who knew about existential risks but who didn't give 100% of their disposable incomes to x-risk motivation. This would act as an incentive to get people to donate more to reducing existential risk, and thereby increase the chances of a positive singularity. This seems to be what CEV (coherent extrapolated volition of humanity) might do if it were an acausal decision-maker.[1] So a post-singularity world may be a world of fun and plenty for the people who are currently ignoring the problem, whilst being a living hell for a significant fraction of current existential risk reducers (say, the least generous half). You could take this possibility into account and give even more to x-risk in an effort to avoid being punished. But of course, if you're thinking like that, then the CEV-singleton is even more likely to want to punish you... nasty. Of course this would be unjust, but is the kind of unjust thing that is oh-so-very utilitarian. It is a concrete example of how falling for the just world fallacy might backfire on a person with respect to existential risk, especially against people who were implicitly or explicitly expecting some reward for their efforts in the future. And even if you only think that the probability of this happening is 1%, note that the probability of a CEV doing this to a random person who would casually brush off talk of existential risks as "nonsense" is essentially zero.

A more exciting (and to my mind more preferable) way to overcome the problem is to quickly become so rich that you can turn charity into business by single-handedly changing the faces of high-impact industries. Elon Musk is probably the best example of this. I swear that man will single-handedly colonize mars, as well as bringing cheap, reliable electric vehicles to the consumer. And he'll do it at the same time as making even more money. The key to this tactic is scale. You can't contribute 0.00002% of the effort to colonize space or mitigate existential risks and reap 0.00001% of the reward: you get 0 or even negative reward if your contribution is below some threshold.

The quantum billionaire trick

But how can an individual do an Elon Musk job on existential risk? Not everyone is a good enough entrepreneur to drop out of grad school and come out with a $300 million startup before their classmates even have PhDs. Well, there is another way to make $300,000,000. Start with $30,000, and using a quantum random number generator, gamble it on the forex markets at a 10,000:1 ratio. Then in the branches where your gamble pays off, start an AGI company, hire the best people and build an FAI yourself. You could hire existing existential risk charities as consultants when you required their services. You can increase your chance of success in at least some branches by tossing a quantum coin to make key decisions. You could take, say, 50% of the universe for yourself and donate the other 50% to humanity. In your half, you can then create many independent rescue simulations of yourself up to August 2010 (or some other date), who then get rescued and sent to an optimized utopia.

You can also use your resources to acausally trade with a CEV-like singleton that might otherwise punish you for being a partial x-risk reducer, as mentioned before.

You can also use resources to acausally trade [2] with all possible unfriendly AIs [3] that might be built, exchanging resources in branches where you succeed for the uFAI sparing your life and "pensioning you off" with a tiny proportion of the universe in branches where it is built. Given that unfriendly AI is said by many experts to be the most likely outcome of humanity's experiment with AI this century, having such a lifeboat is no small benefit. Even if you are not an acausal decision-maker and therefore place no value on rescue simulations, many uFAIs would be acausal decision-makers. Though it seems to me that most people one-box on Newcomb's Problem, and rescue simulations seems decision-theoretically equivalent to Newcomb.

A win-win solution

What I like most about this option is that it is a win-win interaction between you and the rest of humanity, rather than a lose-win interaction. Humanity benefits by having a much higher chance of survival in 1 in 10,000 of the branches of the wavefunction, and you benefit by getting the lifeboat, removing the possibility of punishment and getting the rescue simulations. It also avoids the bitterness inherent in the first option, and the sucker-ness inherent in the second. That nobody thought of win-win solutions to existential risk before may be a testament to zero-sum bias.

1: One might think that the possibility of CEV punishing people couldn't possibly be taken seriously enough by anyone to actually motivate them. But in fact one person at SIAI was severely worried by this, to the point of having terrible nightmares, though ve wishes to remain anonymous. The fact that it worked on at least one person means that it would be a tempting policy to adopt. One might also think that CEV would give existential risk reducers apositive rather than negative incentive to reduce existential risks. But if a post-positive singularity world is already optimal, then the only way you can make it better for existential risk-reducers is to make it worse for everyone else. This would be very costly from the point of view of CEV, whereas punishing partial x-risk reducers might be very cheap.

2: Acausal trade is somewhat speculative: it is the idea that you can influence causally disconnected parts of the multiverse by doing simulations of them. A simpler explanation of how you can affect a uFAI in this way is to think about Nick Bostrom's Simulation Argument from the point of view of the uFAI. If you historically played a quantum lottery that definitely paid off in some branches of the wavefunction, then the uFAI will assign some probability to being in a simulation run by you, if that is what you pre-committed to doing (and if you actually follow through on your precommitment: the uFAI can test this by simulating you).

3: This idea is in part due to Rolf Nelson's idea of using the simulation hypothesis to acausally trade with uFAIs.Read his blog to find out more.

I think it is important to consider that Obamacare has raised health insurance premiums tremendously, and in doing so has forced more Americans than ever in the Medicaid program, which is objectively the worst health care program in the developed world. The fact that they will pay for enabling a lifestyle of sinful delusions regardless of whatever you want to call it, but will not treat legitimate medical conditions shows how liberal Obamacare has its priorities way out of whack. It is also true that pumping men with estrogen tremendously increases the chance for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and other conditions, and proves how inefficient government and the liberal agenda is. --William Grimes (talk) 16:00, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Hillary I'd classify as a Leninist. Technically speaking, there really is even a subdivision between Leninist and Marxist-Leninist. Hillary appears to have studied closely Lenin's, Leftwing Communism: An Infantile Disease.

Counterpunch magazine documented how Hillary built a vanguard party of a chosen few which is 100% Leninism. Marx made no such reference to vanguardism or the idea of a "permanent revolution."

I wonder where Trump falls in this scheme. What sort of commie is an isolationist-militarist-federalist with ambitions of outerspace-expansionism who ostensibly supports the previously discarded proletariat?

Good question. I had to point out today to the anti-neocon anti-globalists that Trump's Iranian policy is the same as the neocons. But it's how you phrase it. Instead of saying Trump's bowed to the neocons, you have to say the entire neocon movement suddenly woke up and saw the wisdom of Donald Trump.

But it isn't just a very bad country, it is a shit country. Korea is a bad country. Haiti is a SHITHOLE. Have you ever seen neighborhoods in Haiti, you can smell the dung from the picture... If we ridicule people who wave confederate flags because it allegedly glorifies slavery in 1860s, why should ANYONE defend Haiti? USA does NOT need Haiti. Haiti produces NOTHING. Don't get me wrong, I am sure that there are wonderful PEOPLE that originate from Haiti, but Haitian culture produces nothing... What neurological papers of essence come from Haitian Universities? NOTHING. Haiti needs USA. Haiti needs to be diplomatic around USA... Because USA is one of the best countries in the world. In terms of production, this CANNOT be questioned! In fact, it's not like the world would suffer if Haiti was governed by the USA!

Nicholas aka Presents/Remnants of God #fundie rationalwiki.org

To understand the forty and two months that the beast will reign, we must first find the method of time the Bible declares for prophecy. God says in Ezekiel 4:6 "I have appointed thee each day for a year" And we also find the Bible acknowledges a month to be 30 days long. Because in, Genesis 7:11 we see the rain started on the 17 day of the 2nd month and in Genesis 8:3,4 we find the water receded at the end of 150 days, then it says the ark rested on the 17th day of the 7th month. That's exactly 5 months. If we divide the 150 days by the 5 months you get 30 days per month. So 42 months multiplied by 30 equals 1260. According to Ezekiel 4:6, that's 1260 years that Papal Rome would reign.

On February 2012, in a thread on the MensRights subreddit about a distasteful username on a feminist board, he made a "joke" about how he wanted to violently rape one of its users. When he was informed the person in question was an actual rape victim and called out by said person for his abusive language and lack of respect for people with post-traumatic stress disorder, he complained about the very concept of trigger warnings and posted further graphic descriptions of how he would rape her again in a deliberate attempt to make her relive her trauma.
Choice statements include "I will make you a rape victim if you don't fuck off." and "I think we should give the guy who raped you a medal. I hope you fucking drown in rape semen, you ugly, mean-spirited cow."[53][54]

[…], if only towns and villages could and would do what they did as a matter of course until well into the nineteenth century in Europe and the United States: to post signs regarding entrance requirements to the town, and once in town for entering specific pieces of property (no beggars, bums, or homeless, but also no Moslems, Hindus, Jews, Catholics, etc.); to expel as trespassers those who do not fulfill these requirements [...]"

It is quite simple, sir. Please consider that gender is assigned by God in the womb, and there are only male and female (Genesis 1:27) and that is simply all that really exists. The Cult of Transgender tends to force those who even have the slightest inclination they are something other than what God made them, they suck them in. Then they lobbied the psychological institutions to push so-called "transitioning" as the ONLY remedy for gender confusion, which is caused by the fluoride and the birth control hormones in the water. When people realized they have made a mistake, they seek to undo the bodily mutilation they were indoctrinated to undergo and the Cult of Transgender shames and rebukes them and ignores their existence so the mental health professionals they lobbied continue to go ahead and push teenagers on hormones. Also of note is that most Transgenderism in men is caused by autogynephilia as well as social rejection, and can be the result of a co-morbid disorder such as autism, which is caused by the mercury in vaccinations that kids are pushed on at such an early age. So-called Transgendered folks have a suicide rate of 41 percent, and sex changes only increase this rate. We need to treat the mentally ill far better than we do, but the liberals keep on pushing this ideology that you can exercise veto power over the will of God because mere man thinks he IS God nowadays.

Medicaid is unequivocally the worst healthcare system in the developed world, so why is it being celebrated as a lifeline to the poor?

Therefore, trillions of taxpayer dollars are being spent to no avail. --William Grimes (talk) 16:07, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

All government run healthcare programs have shown to be total failures, but Medicaid is of course by far the worst offender, and the main thing that Obamacare accomplished was kicking people off better private programs and onto the subpar Medicaid program. While we indeed are pumping men full of estrogen in this country. Isn’t that what the liberal ideology of Transgenderism is all about? We’ve made men so effeminate through the feminist movement and by suppressing boys with Ritalin as the public schools treat boys like defective girls. Therefore, men now think they are women and seek to engage in experimental medical prosecutes that are detrimental to physical and mental health. We need to treat our mentally ill far better in this country, and RINOs like McCain who voted against repealing the Obamacare monstrosity aren’t helping. --William Grimes (talk) 17:27, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Deuteronomy 23:1: He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD. Let’s start off with saying that God doesn’t make mistakes. GOD CREATED US TO BE MALE AND FEMALE! God has ordained different roles for men and for women! Men go out and WORK HARD while women stay at home and take care of the kids and cook and clean! Yet, men insist upon wearing drag and taking estrogen and mutilating their flesh! Breast enhancements, cutting off their penises, and all of this other garbage! No matter how much money you put into this vanity, and no matter how many dresses and how much makeup you wear, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A MAN! YOU MOCK GOD IF YOU ATTEMPT TO “CORRECT” HIS PERFECT CREATION! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You can’t get pregnant! You can’t have kids! You don’t get your period! All you may have are some fake breasts and a fake vagina! Have you ever heard a transvestite talk? That’s conclusive evidence that you WILL ALWAYS HAVE XY CHROMOSOMES AND WILL ALWAYS BE A MAN AND THAT IS BECAUSE IT IS WHAT THE LORD HATH ORDAINED! OWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! There’s also women these days, these really butch lesbos trying to become men with a fake penis! Can’t have kids either! Feminism has run amok, and women aren’t just happy with being in the workforce and wearing short hair and pants and other men’s clothing!! They gotta have a pseudo-penis and chop off their breasts as well! That’s a total mockery to Our Lord Jesus Christ! SAY AMEN IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!!!!!! In the DSM-V, there is a mental illness called gender dysphoria! This is a MENTAL ILLNESS, NOT A “GENDER IDENTITY!” LETTING A TRANSVESTITE MUTILATE THEIR FLESH AND TAKE HORMONES IS LIKE GIVING AN ALCOHOLIC A FIFTH OF JACK DANIELS OR GIVING A MORBIDLY OBESE PERSON A BIG MAC! THESE TRANSVESTITES DO NOT NEED TO INDULGE IN THEIR MENTAL ILLNESS! THEY NEED HELP, WHICH CAN BE FOUND IN THE WORD OF GOD! HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LORD! THESE FREAKS OF NATURE ARE NOT CONTENT WITH MOCKING GOD’S CREATION! THE PRONOUN POLICE IN CALIFORNIA ARE MAKING CRIMINALS OUT OF GODLY FOLKS AND THEY LET THE SODOMITE DISEASE AIDS RUN AMOK!

This page is written in a very naive way which assumes that "coercion" occurs as some aberrant behaviour practiced by a tiny minority. No, strict religion *is* coercion. The clue's in the name - Islam means Submission, i.e. Submission to God, i.e. specifically, in the case of Islam, Submission to Sharia Law. It's the same mistake as those Arab hijabis who claim that they freely chose to wear a Hijab. Well no because their whole culture is making them believe that if they don't wear a hijab, they are sluts. It's an oppressive culture.

Of course, even though Namazie is an atheist, this point of view is a little extreme, so that's why she couches it in terms of rights. But the reality is, Muslim women will only be truly free when they become apostates. Arbitration or no arbitration

The Rev. William H. Grimes #fundie rationalwiki.org

I think it is important to consider that in the United States, the average life expectancy is 77 years old, while the lifespan of the average transgendered individual is 35. Defying God’s natural law has severe ramifications on physical and mental health. Pumping men with estrogen for long periods of time results in increased risk for cardiovascular problems, blood clots, and other issues ranging from excessive emotional distress to morbid obesity. For those with a family history of heart disease, this so-called “treatment” will cause cardiovascular related death more quickly than eating Big Macs and fries for every meal every day of the week while drinking gallons of soda and living a sedentary lifestyle. This is why I believe that “cross-sex hormone therapy” should be banned as it violates the first precept of the Hippocratic Oath; the strongly negative effects from this “treatment” proves God’s natural law displayed in Genesis 1:27. Therefore the most humane thing would be to reinforce proper gender roles and possibly administer an antipsychotic such as Pimozide or Thorazine, instead of doing the equivalent of giving an alcoholic a fifth of Jack Daniels as the essay clearly states. It’s enabling, it’s inhumane, and it’s inherently harmful and detrimental.—William Grimes (talk) 15:54, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Bullshit. Hell isn't cruel. God decides what is moral. Not you guys.

Yes, hell is forever. What is it like? Emotional, mental, and physical torment, forever and ever. A trillion years are not even a second. People are already there, begging for another chance, but they already had a chance. They're going to stay there, forever.

Many people had visions of hell. Demons came and told us about hell. One South Korean made a documentary of her experience In hell. One punishment for men for sexual sins are animals gnawing on your genitials. Bestiality will have demons twist your body until you drip blood. Blasphemy will have your tokngues nailed onto a table and lava poured onto them. Forever and ever... Masturbation will have your penis sliced... Over and over...

You guys ridicule and scoff at what I'm saying now, but you'll see. Satan has decided you.

A demon on the April and Wayne show described the worms in hell. Exorcized people on Emmanuel TV described hell. Many MANY revelations.

Cruel, unbearable torture.. For ever and ever. Never ending. You all are going to end up that way if you do t repent. You say a moral god wouldntmdo that? God makes the morals! You don't!

On average, when a girl is 13 years old, her IQ on an adult intelligence test will be in the normal range. The age of consent in Germany is 14. The age of consent in Uruguay is 12. The age of consent in Spain has traditionally been 13 and still is although it is in a limbo. The age of consent in Canada was 14 until a few years ago when the USA made them raise it. Phalometric studies, which measure male sexual arousal by penile blood volume, reveal that over 80% of males are just as sexually attracted to pubescent 12 year olds as they are to 18 year olds.

Evolutionary psychology theory strongly supports point 3, as males who reproduced with the full range of fertile females were far more likely to pass their genetics on, and to do so to a greater extent. The age of consent around the world was close to puberty up until the 1880's, when religious feminists groups invented the idea that it should be higher, originally done to lower prostitution rates Full sexual maturity, meaning tanner stage 5, is reached on average at age 14.5 in females, meaning that you cannot differentiate between a 14.5 year old girl and an 18 year old girl, based on sexual development.

About 25% of adult females will never pass tanner stage 4, which is reached on average around 13 years old. Underage teenagers also fall into the normal range of adult height and weight, although more so toward the petite side of normal, Tons of underage teenagers are having sex with each other and with adults and turning out perfectly fine, and your entire argument is based on made up bullshit that you have been brainwashed into believing and which has not a shred of legitimate evidence supporting it.

The brain of a human continues to develop until they are 25 years old, so you cannot use the lack of a mature brain to argue that a 15 year old cannot consent to sex but an 18 or even 24 year old can, and also see point 1 which shows that 13 year old brains support normal adult intelligences. Also, keep in mind that there are a lot of people who are very intent on lying about the facts, distorting reality, and doing whatever they have to do to manipulate your perception of the world.

There is an organized movement to demonize and criminalize empirically demonstrated as normal male sexual behavioral patterns. These people are filthy liars, and they have tried to infiltrate every group of significant power they are capable of infiltrating, in order to further their male hating agenda of bullshit. A prime example of this was their failed coup of the field of Psychology, in which their agents attempted to have sexual attraction to pubescent 12-14 year olds labeled as a mental illness called "hebephilia". Thankfully this attempt was REJECTED, and hebephilia is not a recognized mental disorder in the DSM, and the MAJORITY opinion of mental health professionals is that being sexually attracted to teenagers is NORMAL, and the opinion of the majority of people in dozens of first world countries from Germany to Italy to Uruguay is that it can be acceptable for an adult male to have sex with young teenagers!

Are there any plausible hypotheses about the evolutionary psychology of pedophilia?

We know that, up to a point, youthfulness is often an attribute non-pedophiles look for in a mate. For a long-term relationship, assuming the partners do not live in an industrialized society in which having a high school education is an advantage for a mate, it makes sense to mate with someone as close to pubescence as possible, since they have more years of fertility ahead of them. This would explain the fetish behind magazines such as Barely Legal and websites that advertise models who have just turned 18 and look younger than 18.

So maybe pedophilic attractions developed because it was more adaptive to err on the side of too young rather than too old. In pubescence, fertile young women still have many characteristics of children, and therefore it might be maladaptive for a man to be strongly repelled by childlike traits.

Maybe there were situations, in caveman eras, in which someone started a sexual relationship with a prepubescent, and that relationship continued into pubescence and produced offspring. Maybe those who did this had an advantage over rivals, by being the first to form an emotional bond with the child, and to claim the child as their long-term partner. Maybe this emotional bond was promoted by their providing the child with food and other resources; thus it also served to protect the child's well-being.

Who knows what complicated social purposes pedophilia might have served? Maybe, in a variant of the super-uncles theory, pedophiles served as caregivers for young family members, since they would tend to volunteer for roles that would put them in close contact with those kids. A counter-argument would be that their engaging in child sexual abuse would cause enough harm to those children to outweigh the value of the care they provided.

Maybe in caveman days, though, the resources they provided would have meant the difference between life and death for the child, so that back then, the pedophilia was adaptive.

They get called "child molestors" and such but they also get discriminated against solely on the basis of openly being pedophiles, without necessarily being called any other names.

When they get kicked out of places like Wikipedia, systemic bias is introduced into those sites' content.

Perpetuating that bias is in fact part of the stated goal of kicking those editors out.

People don't want them editing articles in ways that will produce a neutral point of view.

It's obvious that when liberals can't come up with a coherent rebuttal, they resort to calling their opponents "trolls." It's quite sad, really, because it represents the dumbing down of culture that is manifested by the fact that we are using scantily clad women to sell the double bacon cheeseburgers that are causing our people to be unhealthy and obese. The Episcopal Church keeps on declining, yet clergy won't rethink their approval of homosexuality. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, and liberalism is a mental disorder.--Elvis is King (talk) 21:35, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

you blocked me after i already re-made the change and didn't receive your message.

Unless you have got good evidence that grays dont exist, please stop saying in the article they are a figment of people's imaginations. I can easily suggest, "everyone knows that bug's create an imaginary blinding light when you have one, any one, in your sight. The sun seems to only be seen exactly as this is happening.

Being true, earnest and logically coherent with our atheism

I am going to charge atheists - virtually all of us here - with a serious accusation. There's a bug infecting their system known as the agnostic view. It is the belief that namely we can never be entirely, 100% sure that there's no sentient force in charge of our destinies (theism) or overseeing the cosmos in apathy (deism). That is 100% wrong. The evidence for theism or deism is likewise akin to zero and therefore we can rest 100% assured that no God whatsoever exists. It is moreover 100% within our human capabilities of reason to come 100% clear on this fact. Whoever maintains a view to the contrary is in essence affirming his faith to have faith in unseen possibilities. The view that God and religion are 100% human creations can never ever be refuted on a scientific basis. Your miserable attempts to cut God a 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% slack are 100% astray of the path where logic itself, i.e. the dynamic of human reasoning wedges us. The reason you are confusing your 100% illogical arguments for 100% logical is for the same reason that when we are sleeping and dreaming we cannot pick apart our dream from reality. Well, wake up. There's 100% no God! Fear not to say so dumbass! --Gewgtweg (talk) 21:09, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Definition of God:
Intelligence behind this life, creator (of natural laws, natural world, life etc.), purpose of life, etc.
Note for especially dumb people... Since God is the creator of the natural world (time, space and matter), the question -"where did God come from"- becomes irrelevant!
What God is Not
Mythical Creature
Invisible Man
Skydaddy
Any human invented object (including but not limited to shapes, sizes, colors etc. Basically, FSM, Zeus, Pink Unicorn, Flying Teapot etc.)

Referring to God as an invisible skydaddy and thinking, that belittles his existence... is no more true than calling gravity an "invisible super power" and believing it doesn't exist
The fool says in his heart, There is no God - Psalm 14:1

1 Nothing Makes Sense Without God
That is how I am going to kick it off. Nothing makes sense without God (in other words without intelligence, purpose and meaning)... And please, spare your delusions that we can "make purpose", "Darwinism Offers Something Beautiful" etc. This is a simple, yet necessary assumption. Everything works with it, nothing works without it. We are only different from a rock by the quantity and behavior of atoms. There is no purpose, consciousness, or virtue in this life. Everything is subjective. We are a cosmic afterthought. An accident that happened by chance...
2 No absolute morality
Yup... Morality is subjective... Most common explanation is that the feeling of empathy is innate (which then makes us wonder why do we condemn Sociopaths, who biologically lack this "innate" feeling)... But again, you can spare this BS and at least be honest, there is no reason for morality. There is no foundation for morality... Rocks don't need morality, we are only different by the quantity of atoms and their behavior... So whatever we think is moral, gets to be right... Also, do not delude yourselves that you can be "descent" human beings, since decency DOES NOT exist... Simply because we make up what is descent and what is not, by consciousness that DOES NOT EVEN EXIST... Because again it is just a bunch of chemicals interacting in a specific way... (what a cursed worldview, muttered he)

3 Teleological Argument
Whether you want to gish gallop and bring "evidence" of "bad" design... or make up some other stuff... One thing is undeniable... Life is very complex. As David once put it: I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. (Psalm 139: 14). The complexity that has been observed in the universe points to intelligence. Whether it is the feeling of balance, memory or the corneal reflex the proof is there... The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome. -John 1:5.
You can try to deny it, We can certify it!
4 The Prime Mover
Everything in this universe points to that one point where everything began (the clock turned on if you like)... Everything in this life has a cause, which in turn itself has a cause... and thus ad infinitum... There has to be a prime cause... an intelligent designer... This we know to be God

5 Fine Tuned Universe
Whether you want to invent the "multiverse" theory or "ancient astronauts", one thing is clear... The fine tuning of the world does not "go away". The ingredients necessary for life... The sources of ingredients (bananas etc.) being made up of the same DNA code (yes... DNA is an intelligent design argument, NOT one for common descent), air, ozone layer to protect us from UV lights are a clear indicators of INTELLIGENCE and not random occurrence!
As Paul once put it:
"Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." -Romans 1:20
6 No Absolute Justice
How often have you uttered the phrase "It's not fair"? Well it is not supposed to be... Because, once again, we decide what is fair by using our consciousness (which DOES NOT EXIST to begin with)... There is no objective judge, no order, no consequences for actions... If you get away with something, (e.g Hitler, who after an exciting and popular life of 56 years, after having fulfilled life's dreams, peacefully, and with AS LITTLE PAIN AS POSSIBLE, departed!) that's it!
7 Non-Atheistic Reality
The reality, as we perceive it, literally COULD NOT BE further removed from an atheistic view... We live with purpose, sense of morality, sense of absolute justice (call it Karma or whatever). We live as intelligent beings, made in the image of God. NONE of you can tell me, that you were raised or continue to live as a random occurrence with no morality, respect or decency! So on one hand let's convince ourselves we are a meaningless afterthought. But let us live meaningful, honest, loving lives. And give our kids the same understanding!
8 Life
The very fact that life exists is a smoking gun that PROVES the existence of a designer behind it. The complexity and design is UNDENIABLE.
9 Atheist's Existence being Predictable and Compatible
The Bible is clear that atheistic, scoffers and mockers will come... It is also clear that no proof is enough for someone who WILLFULLY denies the existence of intelligence...
Here are a few verses... "you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires" -2 Peter 3:3
"For they look, but they don't really see. They hear, but they don't really listen or understand" -Matthew 13:13
"If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’” Luke 16:31
10 No Good Argument for Atheism (EVER EVER!)
In the history of existence of the atheistic movement... NEVER HAS ANYONE GIVEN any reason for atheism... All the arguments center at scoffing theists... There has never been an argument for why someone should be an atheist--Kingdamian1 (talk) 02:37, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Taylor Swift is a succubus! If you lust after the flesh of Taylor Swift, you will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God! The evil succubus Taylor Swift has created a den for Lucifer in her wickedly sinful vagina, and Satan formed the evil nasty woman with perfectly circular and perky breasts because God would rather have weak trembling boys than STRONG MEN OF GOD! "Boys only want love if it's torture" this succubus has no interest in God and godly love and she didn't understand agape love so therefore she's a disgusting nasty woman who simply wants to have sex with as many men as possible and getting birth control hormones in the water and making men weak beta males full of estrogen like these atheist nerdy video game users who pretend to care about science! Wearing Pi shirts and taking advice from ENGINEER Bill Nye who claims to be an expert in biology, cosmology, astronomy, and meteorology! He's as much of a scientist as the manager of my nearest Wendy's! Little nerds on here can't even get anything right!

How's the autism, Frank? I think polio is less dangerous than autism because all these autistic nerds have no respect for their fellow man, and they cry and scream for no apparent reason because they're intellectually incapable of having a personal relationship with the Lord. If it wasn't for autism ungodly garbage like "hentai" and "My Little Pony" would have been eradicated by now. --Elvis is King (talk) 03:05, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
