I think you need to spend more time observing nature.

All forests are huge battle grounds.

Most predators survive by eating the young of their prey.

Brutality controls all mating in the animal kingdom.

What do you think caused the fall of Rome? Corruption, including inappropriate sex.

I was mistaken, I am not supporting you.

I want my S & F back.

Serves me right for not reading the thread thoroughly.

Read the article, it explains your question.

Thanks for replying.

Third line?





I always read the article and I was being sarcastic Porn leads nothing and had but one moment in time they did have a impact VHS over Beta.


After that nothing they do not lead the way. They do use tech when they have a budget but they still use very small budgets 4 million is a drop in the bucket as far as movies go.



So to say they lead the way is a farce and the author of the article obviously has a swore hand and not because he wrote the article.

I think Christianity caused the fall of the Roman Empire.

When they were great, they were into Dionysus, god of wine. Only after they became Catholics, who in my opinion are not Christians, did they start to consider sex as a sin, and their civilization ground to a halt.

Where ever sexuality has been open, prosperity has reigned, were it has been oppressed, stagnation has reigned.

Porn lead the way, because porn draw a large paying customer base to their business, that has essentially paid for the development of the web. The author of the article is correct if you look up the history of how the web developed.

Except all of history has demonstrated just the opposite.

Sexually repressive cultures stagnate, while sexually liberated cultures prospered. Thus the Hellenistics were always ahead of the Abrahamistic religions. The west ahead of the east, and on and on.



all history? well do feel free to provide a few examples of this, Abrahamistic religions cover half the world and where are these hellenistics?. what about the victorians thay were uptight it never held them back in fact alberts son was a perv and ruined all his mother and father had built up with his constant debauchery

If this article is indeed true, and I have no reason to doubt it, then in my own opinion, it is a bloody darn shame. But hey, I guess I should be used to it, right? Humans don't do things for the sake of helping each other out, or advancing society as a whole, but more importantly people do things for their own benefit.
Adam Smith, unfortunately, couldn't of been more right.

People who say an "open" society to sexuality will advance us further and faster? I doubt it. Sure, America may not be the world's most "open" society to sexuality, but one hour of watching popular teenage programming on channels such as Much Music or MTV will reveal that you're culture evolves around immediate gratification. The more you promote "microwave society" and getting what you want when you want, the more you'll cause people to consume and want to consume. You're country is very much a democracy. You vote for the corporate interests you want by spending your money.

If you want more sex in society because things will be better, go ahead. But you're going to end up with the same regurgitated corporate mess as you are in now. People get what they want when they want, and Corporations will give it to them for a price. You throw sex in there and the drive is even stronger.

Call me religious, but one day you'll see. Everyone wants to be "free" so they think that doing whatever they want will liberate them, when in reality, you are doing what you want, but it's disguised as oppressive corporatism. Don't you see? You've voted with your dollars, and now you can't escape the "immediate gratification" culture that has enveloped much of the world.

Poet,

Don't you know that the Romans had huge sexual orgies just before the collapse of the Roman Empire?

If that is not sexual expression, I don't know what is.

How was the porn industry involved in the space shuttle program?

Well I guess porn doesn't have anything to do with technology then!

Thanks for clearing everything up.

Kind of like a necessary evil. Some of the best inventions and defense technologies are results of engaging in war.
No one likes war but some say this is why we participate, to keep the technology alive and huge segments of the economy operational.
All this regardless of their overall effect, positive or negative, on the society and the people.

Way to go.

Actually, materialism and lust are two completely different vices.

I don't know what makes you think you are the judge of cultures, but Western beliefs are far better than what most cultures embrace, where the privileges of a few are allowed to run roughshod over everyone else.

Choosing to wallow in ignorance has to be the most pathetic of vices.

Not that you care.

Ah yes, lets not pretend that lust for violence takes a back seat to lust for pleasure.

Clearly the love to kill and dominate, which is what 90% of the video games out there center around, draws its own share of the audience. The ability to create the graphics necessary for the blood and brains to splatter just right with a head shot in Grand Theft Auto has pushed it's own technological edge.

In the choice of vices, I'll take sex over violence and hypocrisy any day.

Ah, but I have lived long enough to know, what the best things in life have been, and they certainly weren't material, or violence and domination.

But this is so silly, and completely off the point of the thread.

Porn has been one of the main driving forces of the development of the internet.

Personally, I think it is succulently ironic.

Porn, dating sites, political forums, violent video games, and then everything else.

It is mentioned in Bible


(Genesis 2:7) God formed only a man: "...the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

bible.cc...

Realising the man needed a helper he then created helper

The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

www.biblegateway.com...:18&version=NIV

and then status of woman

Genesis 3:16: "...thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee."

bible.cc...

And then Sarai agreed Abrham to sleep and have sex with the maidservant

Genesis 16:2 :so she said to Abram, "The LORD has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my maidservant; perhaps I can build a family through her." Abram agreed to what Sarai said.

bible.cc...

Thus, porn is okay as long as it feeds the need of man and not just any man only the holy chosen people as it says in the holy scriptures

Deuteronomy 14:2, "For you are a holy people to YHWH your God, and God has chosen you to be his treasured people from all the nations that are on the face of the earth."


It is Gods wish to entertain holy people and to serve the need of chosen people and who are we to go against it. Goyims are only creatures of Jehovah made with features of human beings, in order to better serve and entertain the chosen people. Porn is okay as long as it serves the need for God's people.

No, it's money. As the man said, "Money is the root of all evil," including porn, including prostitution, et cetera, et cetera, ad infinitum.

The Internet (or, more properly, ARPANET) was created for exchange of military data, way back in 1969, when Al Gore was still dropping acid in college. So, the world-wide-web was born of WAR. Steve Jobs & Bill Gates made the damned thing accessible to the public all throughout the 80s and early 90s, and that was just one long money train, up-learning the Internet from scratch.

I was on the fekking net when there were only 4 destinations available to the public, right. And none of them were porn, but they all cost about $10 bucks an hour to access, if you wanted to visit the San Diego Zoo in command-line format. LOL

So the actual Internet was born for the sake of MONEY, pure and simple. That's when the Prodigies and Compuserves and America Onlines appeared and started reaming out our collective bungholes, which was very much like gay fisting porn every time you got your monthly bill.

But the big-time online porn industry didn't come online until later in the evolution of personal computers and the Internet. It may be a driving force now, but in the early days it was just a bunch of greasy, sleazy pedophiles transferring their kiddie porn at 2400 baud, like the worms they were.

Yeah that would be bad as the best porn ever.
I can see the new porn tech now as instead of computer screen
its a coil or beam focus going straight to the brain by passing
the optical system making perverts blind just like their momma
said would happen.
It sure took a long time.
Ooh I forgot the scientific amnesia on Tesla.
So sorry.
Carry on.
ED: Tesla's non Hertz waves has a sort of gotcha.
Some one has the technology and is not telling.
Do you think the brain has the same type of waves.
