Wow... Could you not ever be more mistaken. The most basic of goals in all forms of life whether human, animal or vegetable is to ensure that life continues and our genetic code is passed to a new generation. All this subconscious biology forms the framework for our conscious mind and prewires the paths to the goal in millions of tiny little decisions every hour of every day, some conscious and some not. Yep... Right up to asking little Jennie if she wants to go to the movies.
Ramius, the issue here is not that biology does or doesn’t provide subliminal ques or desires. Yes it does. The original premise was that every act of sex was driven by the desire to procreate. Sorry, that’s absurd.
As a sixty-one year old male, I can verify for you that procreation is not my personal goal when I have sex.
You folks have got to get off this kick. You’re killing yourselves.
After my daughter was born four days after the bi-centennial of our nation, I had a vasectomy. What’s your explanation for thirty-six years of sex without the ability to have children? Doesn’t that blow just a wee little hole in your claims that we only have sex for procreation? Well, yes it does.
Now please rant on about why I have sex.
You two have sought to take the humanity out of sex.
1. you’re not doing it just because it feels good
2. you’re not doing it for self gratification
3. you’re not doing it just because she’s a cutie and you want her
4. you’re not doing it to enhance your relationship
5. you’re not doing it because you love her, but you don’t want kids yet
You’re just fooling yourself. You really want to procreate, and you’re too stupid to know it.
Give it a rest you two. Your arguments are unsustainable, and verge on the absurd.
