Right you are............because all religions have been corrupted, twisted and rewritten by greedy and nefarious men.
You won't hear me argue against that.
But, for now, our Creator isn't running the show. He is (for now) allowing the fallen ones to operate this principality.
Agreed. The Rothschildes, Rockefellers, Warburgs, and Morgans are running the show.
Has anyone else noticed that the more casual sex there is the higher the divorce rate and the more one parent households have gone
Yes, but remember..."correlation does not equal causation". It's chief tenet of the philosophy, logic, mathematics, and the sciences. In order to
establish with even reasonable certainty that there is a causation
or causal corollary
you have to also illustrate that all of the other
variables that one would likely hypothesize as contributing to the divorce epidemic WEREN'T at play.
For example, think about these possible variables:
1. The decline of the DOMESTIC purchasing power of the dollar and/or economic parity. Any time the economy sucks...divorces, abandoned children, and
runaway spouses increase exponentially. Think of all the stories in the depression of men bailing out on their entire families. Granted...it might
not have been a "divorce"...because at that time you could move a few states away, assume a new name, remarry...and more or less no one was the
2. If you look at correlations amongst instances of "casual sex" across generations you find that there is remarkably less instances of divorce
amongst the later-half of GenX and the Millennials than there were amongst baby boomers...despite living in a society in which casual sex is even MORE
the norm than it was in the '60's. This tends to support a theory where casual sex is almost entirely irrelevant to the rates of divorces as it has
more to do with the psyche of the generational archetypes as they play out in the generational constellation. (see: Generations: The History of
America's Future by Strauss & Howe)
3. Compare the graphs here between "crop yields" and "per capita divorce rates" in the United States. As soon as the "green revolution" of the 70's
hit you can see a correlation between per acre crop yields and an increase in divorces...they follow the same curve more or less, although since crops
are affected by droughts and whatnot you get a little more of a jagged upward trend. Does this mean that mechanized farming causes divorces? Of
course not...they were just two simultaneous events that just so happened to ALSO correspond w/ an exponential increase of the population.
4. Does this mean that an exponential increase in the population has driven BOTH farming AND divorce rates? I'm not sure. Possibly. It does make
sense that divorces, casual sex, and the need to produce more food per acre would ALL correlate to an increase in the population. After all...there
isn't much spousal infidelity if there are no other mating options available...right?

It is the children that suffer when two people decide to bang each other without courting first.
Yes...but only when birth control isn't used, fails, or the unwanted child is still brought into the world without being aborted. I don't want to
turn this into an abortion thread...I respect your views and I don't want to try changing them. All it takes is a little responsibility and then
casual sex doesn't hurt any children at all.
Aren't humans suppose to be the "thinking" animal?
If so...then we have appear to have failed miserably on many, many, levels. I think of our species more as exceptionally clever monkeys...but monkeys
My husband and I are one soul in two bodies. Two hearts beating as one.
Good for you.
It's a difficult thing to find.
