Atheism is simply a lack of belief in God/s. I agree with atheists that it’s not in their job description to argue, ‘burden of proof’.
The burden of proof does lie with the one(theist) making the claim.
At a minimum, as a theist, I do believe the basic assumption of some kind of grand creator is not in and of itself irrational . I believe there is such a thing as rational theism as rare as that might be!
Pro, pro, pro!
For some reason the ‘archons of the apocalypse’ are obsessed with these issues!
1) sex is awesome and if you don’t like it there’s probably something wrong with you.
2)all animals have sex in every imaginable way. There is no sin in sex; but there are cultural mores. Porn in and of itself isn’t necessarily evil; it would be systems of exploitation and coercion that make the act problematic. Tantra and the Karma-sutra allude to the idea that all kinds of sex can be an avenue of spiritual enlightenment .
3) I suspect those against prostitution have hidden misogynistic tendencies.
Here is the rub though: all of these things need to be premised on non-coercion and non-exploitation! No one should be unduly coerced into any of these behaviors! Of course, in our world today, the whole economic system is premised on coercion and exploitation so there’s little chance that any of these could be healthy. In this system, at this time, regrettably, one inevitably is a pimp or a whore!
Also, in modern societies the age of consent needs to be at 19.

Well, the reason is simple, because that would be fair! You see, if a Mexican, Chinese, or Saudi, wants to immigrate to Canada then it only be fair that Canadians be guaranteed the same right in return; and the laws of those countries should allow such immigrants equal rights as citizens!
Why of course it is! It’s also one of the most insidious types of taxation!
We can reasonably deduce from the behaviour of world governments and world economic systems that C.C. is a hoax!
The Liberal elite and intelligensia found it acceptable to ignore and dismiss the basic needs of the majority of their citizenry! They ignored Maslow’s hierarchy of needs! Moreover, they allowed their friends to set up vast systems of usury to profit from peoples basic needs via predatory systems of finance!
The result of liberalism is one is either a pimp or a whore! And this was the best they could do!
a note on demographics: 10 billion my mid century is my understanding.
Please, Mr. Trump, take environmentalism seriously and start the process of ending the business as usual approach to polluting. And please, address all forms of unnecessary pollution. Thanks!
