This is just going to open a can of worms of other topics that you'll just be biased against. You'll respond with "love is not defined by ***" and then I'll respond with "Either or, As an adult, I can't date a 16 year old and say 'we're in love with each other, we aren't having ***, so it's ok'". Then you'll respond with "That's against the law and that I'm talking about two consenting adults". I respond with the fact that you don't see the hypocrisy in your statement. You'll respond that you're giving up and that it's a waste of time to argue with me. Pages later, we'll rinse and repeat.

Sorry to **** in, but if you don't do anything physical, is there a law against "dating" an under-aged person? I don't believe there is. Even kissing them could be illegal, but simply saying "We're dating and in love" isn't against the law. Arranged marriages, for example, still do happen in the US and are very common around the rest of the world. Sometimes children are promised even before birth. These people would be "dating" even if they've never met.

The consent issue, on the other hand, is a perfectly valid point. That you seem not to believe consent matters in these situations (or at least you're writing it off as hypocrisy... which honestly makes no sense... can gays not consent?), is another matter entirely.

It's not some shadowy international syndicate doing this; it's the US govn under the lead of Obama. And it's happening in broad daylight.

Obama gave Egypt to the radical muslims. He's assisting the radical muslims in Lybia. He assisted the govn unions in Wisc in their attempt to overthrow the duly elected state govn. I hate to upset your sad little existence but Obama's doing exactly what he means to. He's setting up and supporting as many islamic states as he possibly can. The muslims know this which has directly led to the increased violence in the ME over the last 2yrs.


If this makes sense to you, the terrorist have won.

I disagree. While it's not science, it is one of the more widely held counter views to Evolution and therefore, should be mentioned, if only to make students aware that another view exists. I don't think it should be taught, but a passing mention is important, given we're talking about educating people.
If it is not science it does not even earn mention in passing, not even so much as a "intelligent design is not science, this however is:" disclaimer. NONE.

There are other classes for discussion of religion. Science is not one of them.

So long as its a widely used dispute to a theory, it has a valid place being pointed out as so. You can scream and cry about it all you want, doesn't remove the reality that as a widely (and sadly) accepted alternative, it should be mentioned. You want to pull a black and white, go ahead. Doesn't change the fact that the world exists in the grey.

For something to be taught in Science, it should abide by the Scientific Method. I think that's simple enough.

You could be absolutely correct. I'm not sure if it is or it isn't. You would have to define "dating" and what part of that is actually illegal? In any case, I would wager that it would be frowned upon by society regardless.

You lost me there...

The hypocrisy statement was in reference to the hypothetical response in regards to "homosexuality isn't defined by sexual intercourse" to "the ***** goes in the ******" statement. I presented a relationship (an adult and a minor) and my assumption was that she would say that is "against the law". The reason why she would probably say that is because she would make the assumption that they are having sexual relations. That is a fair assumption because that's what couples do. So the hypocrisy would be, why would you assume homosexuals don't do the same, given "homosexuality isn't defined by sexual intercourse"? How is it that you can make the assumption with a minor, but not with the homosexual?

On a scale of one to Varus, she's Varus's right-wing cousin as well. Here's part of our conversation:

I tried to explain it to you but you don't seem to understand it the same way. I could explain it again, but I really don't see the point. I could actually give you examples right here on my facebook friend list of people that are working on this all over the world but I really don't win anything with that.

My great uncle used to say "in the business you don't win anything, you'll lose for sure" I posted this as I post everything else I find interesting, like the Marxist School in Morrocco. You don't want to understand it, you seem to prefer to distorted and mock me because of the way I see politics, I really don't care. As a matter of fact you are just proving my point of how close minded and unable to understand other points of view some people are. So keep going, it's working great for my research on how people on the left are so much more inclined to react and "scream" to something they don't agree with. The people on the right just read it, maybe comment and keep going. For some reason you guys can't do that.

Of course I don't understand it the same way. I think that's obvious? I'm attempting to point out how your thoughts on this seem, for lack of a better term, paranoid. I'm sorry if my ribbing upset you - I'm trying to get you to see how you're appearing to others. Even in your response, you paint over half of the population as "screamers" and the other half as rational... just a sentence after saying how some people are close-minded and unable to understand other points of view.

I understand that you think Marxism is responsible for these revolutions and the Wisconsin teacher unions. I just don't understand how you can, as there seems to be no evidence of it (if anything, I'd think you'd argue it's a fundamentalist Islamic uprising in the ME).

What followed were 5 youtube video links from her with self-avowed Marxists claiming that the working man is rising up all over the world and we'll soon all be brothers in communism. All of them are white, shiny-eyed, kinda grungy, and likely have no idea where the ME revolutions actually happened. Smiley: oyvey

Actually, the reason it's illegal is because it is feared that the adult would take advantage of the child. *** is where the law draws the line, because otherwise it's a rather ambiguous law.

Not that any of this matters, because your statement about vanilla sexual relations between a man and a woman did not garner (and would not have garnered) the response you expected.

Ah, gotcha. I saw "That's against the law and that I'm talking about two consenting adults" and wondered why your issue was with the subject of consent between the two parties. I don't think many people would use "it's against the law," but rather, "a child is not able to give legal consent," hence me assuming your issue was with consent as opposed to a weak argument. My bad.

Wouldn't not being able to give legal consent be considered illegal if done?

If it's consensual, how is "taking advantage" weighing more in that relationship than in any other relationship? So, the girl just turned 18. Is she really that much different than a year and some days ago?

Except for the "harmful" part - it's not. Before you even start digging, don't bother posting your link from some conservative and/or christian website detailing with no empirical research how being *** is somehow a health risk. Been down that road before, and like anything else that comes out of your head, it's stupid and factually incorrect.
