Most people on this planet have a two to three digit IQ.
People who think they are smarter than everyone else, might need to read about Dunning–Kruger effect.
And I completely disagree with that paper since I am already smarter than the average bear...
I don't get what you're wanting us to believe or say. How and why does orgasmic ecstasy come about? The way anything else we enjoy comes about. Why do so many people love sweets? Or massage? Or interacting with pets? Or...
It's pretty simple, she is asking why all the species that have survived by reproducing in sufficient numbers find the process pleasant.
No seriously, that's how fucking absurdly stupid her question is. The real cherry on the top is that this is not the stupidest thing she's posted, and Breezy is even chiming in. As depressing as it is, she may not know any better, but it is hard to believe John doesn't.
No. I was asking about the connecting and bonding experience that reaches great heights of ecstasy and is almost spiritual, when you are with your soulmate/other half. As a side note, I brought up the fact that us having a sex drive that came to be from nothing with no intelligence is simply not possible, like it or not.
"the fact that us having a sex drive that came to be from nothing with no intelligence is simply not possible, like it or not."
I do not disagree that it may have come from nothing. But an intelligence was not required, just the inevitable forces of nature and evolution.
Animals with no sex drive stopped having sex, and thus offspring. How many times does it have to be explained to you that not all things come from an intelligent creator?
Oh wait, you're not just stubborn, you are as thick as a meter of lead.
Humans are the only animals that make a choice to copulate. SOME OF US HAVE BRAINS. The human species can choose to not have sex and procreate. All other species on the planet have sex drives that are geared towards procreation and no ability to control that drive. That's why your dog humps your led. Just be thankful you don't have an elephant as a pet. Humans make a choice... unless they are male.... Having orgasms is nature's way of increasing the population and that's about it.
All these sentimental heart and flower symbols reveal a tragic romantic strain which some have had the luxury of adding to the sometimes satisfying physical act of sex.
Lovemaking can start with fleeting eye contact followed by a lifetime, if you're damn lucky, of all sorts of intimate physical emotional experiences that dont necessarily involve the sex act.
I have been fortunate to have just a few sensationally memorable relationships. I sense you want to insist a god is part of the mix which I find abhorrent and want no part of sullying the private interactions I value.
As far as I can guess your god just likes to watch and serves no other purpose.
Not that God is part of the mix, just how these amazing experiences we are having come to be?
@Senta Christine: Not that God is part of the mix
Yet every religion that I've ever heard of involves some form of obsession with sex. Some religions have temple prostitutes, orgiastic rituals, polygamy, etc., while others try to repress, control, or eliminate sexual urges. I think the Catholics probably have the most diseased obsession with sex with their celibacy rules, virgin cult, and abhorrence of contraception.
And while many religions have worshiped male sexuality (e.g., the Roman god Priapus and the phallic festivals of Shinto), female sexuality tends to be viewed with fear and loathing.
Due to scary sexist male dominated societies. All religions are man-made or have been tampered with by men, but that should not detur anyone from believing in higher intelligence as the creator of our planet. Why do you think i believe so many are in hell and that hell is happening right here, right now, right before our very eyes?
All religions and gods are human constructs. What objective evidence do you have that a higher intelligent exist?
Sex is about one, two, or more people having fun. Your sexual partner's experience can make it enjoyable or unenjoyable.
How do u really know if your partner is enjoying it or just faking it though? I can only measure my own amazing experiences, but I have no doubt there is true love that is expressed when we become one with our other half. The other stuff, other ppl- well whatever. Just humdrum to me.
Senta: "How do u really know if your partner is enjoying it or just faking it though?"
Because if she were faking getting off two or three times before I did the Phpft ... Ding thing, then she should have been an actress making millions of dollars per movie.
Trust me. She weren't never faking it.
I'm sure none of my female partners faked it. I pleased the orally and sexually.
So you have no objective evidence for your god.
So all you have is subjective evidence from your mind.

He was faking it, trust me, no way could any man focus with that rabbit boiling away on his stove.
In the past I worked with someone that my friends and I would refer to as "hasenfeffer"; part of an inside joke than you probably get.
Any kin to "hasselhoff"?
Because you are a lunatic. Only a lunatic would tell an atheist scientist, that there are no atheist scientists. Remember, you asked the question.
What does that have to do with hell? And I have no proof anyone is a scientist. People pretend all kinds of things on the internet. As for my observations of hell being here and my beliefs about it that are shared by almost half the world... it only takes observing and examining your environment and then deducing what would possibly make this a fair universe.
“People pretend all kinds of things on the internet.”
I’m now wondering if that includes you.
What is it that you think I may be pretending? I didn't claim to be a scientist, but the person who did does not even have a good grasp on very basic science.
I think there’s a distinct possibility that you are a troll.
Not sure what a troll is. Please explain.
We are wondering that perhaps you are not a lunatic presenting their world view; that instead you are pretending to be a lunatic.
I'm not pretending anything and I am not a lunatic. I just simply don't agree with you and I am not a Christian either so I think that maybe confuses you. I have eclectic and deist beliefs like many New Agers.
You were rude to me by answering my question with a question.
Still waiting on the objective evidence that your god exist.
Not sure what a troll is. Please explain.
