Sex is a very religious experience...it is even used in certain Masonic rituals.

I am watching it now but was anxious to share. So far I can tell this will challenge the beliefs of some on this board, as well as other learned members who don't necessarily subscribe to the dogmatic.
Either way, I found it alluded to some interesting theories for contemplation.
Be back later...
OK - so far this is a well produced docu, tastefully blending the basic rudimentary elements of the big world religions, and then suggesting the underlying symbolisms and how it all relates. This resonates with me and I hope others will enjoy it also.
...Now I am 38 minutes in and I am not sure I like where this is going. It has taken a "sex is bad for the soul" kind of turn. You know, like, "Desire leads to suffering" type stuff. I may end up being sorry I posted this before watching in its entirety...
,,,One hour in and now it's not "sex" that is bad, it's the orgasm!
...Just finished and, according to this video, the secret knowledge of the Universe is Chastity - as defined herein as the building of sexual energy between a Man and Woman by way of intimacy without climax (or "spilling of the Holy Spirit).
This is explained by using Kabbalah, Tree of Life, Hebrew letters (and their corresponding numbers), as well as Biblical scripture (proffered as being cloaked symbolic messages hidden).
I dunno...I liked how this started but am disappointed with where it went after that. Feel free to comment...

I would openly challenge any "Christian" to successfully prove that sex is a bad thing, using only the Song of Solomon to do so.

I thought sex was simply a physical release of pressure building up inside people. It's all the people thinking it's super special or has magical or religious properties that create all the issues in my opinion. You can create another human via sex so that is special. It is a needed and enjoyable part of life. Getting married I believe was simply confirming both are committed to raising any kid who may be born. Without a commitment by both if a child is born, the mother and or kid will likely suffer from a lack of resources or support the father would offer if committed or married. Just my opinion.

Am i missing the obvious here? Sex without "seed spilling" means no more humans in the future. Or is that the plan?
So whilst you may gain universal esoteric knowledge, you doom the species. Sorry but seed spilling for me every time!edit on 12-7-2012 by Flavian because: (no reason given)
