Celebrating Pornography

Evolution’s Many Influences

It is unfortunate that the checkout lines at so many stores continue to display pornographic images which our evolution-informed culture continues to condone and celebrate. Entertainment journalist Aly Weisman, for instance, approvingly reports on the latest Sports Illustrated reminder to young girls that they are inadequate. Meanwhile the Hugh M. Hefner First Amendment Award consistently rewards evolutionists, such as Patricia Princehouse, Zachary Kopplin and Eugenie Scott, for their junk science. It is not that evolution created pornography, but evolution did reinforce and fuel a world view that did. Religion drives science, and it matters.

  1. Like it or not, pornography has been a part of human culture for thousands of years. Religion hasn't done anything to suppress it and it certainly didn't need any encouragement from the theory of evolution to thrive.

  3. Straightforward anti-evolution propaganda, it has nothing to do with science. I might as well start dragging up Christian endorsement of slavery or eugenics.

  4. Cornelius Hunter descends into irrelevancy. Inexorably. By his choice.

  5. Oirn was opposed by the british protestant world and instead a firm concept of a family helped give us a better civilization then others.
    Porn is evil in every way and should be illegal.
    They censor creationism or christianity but not porn.
    This must change too.

    6. Okay, I'll try. #1. Porn objectifies women.
      #2. A lot of men out there want to believe that all women want to have sex with them, all the time. Pornography encourages these men in this belief. And they might behave accordingly.
      #3. Pornography might make some men unhappy if the women they are involved in relationships with do not look like the women in featured in the Porn. This might encourage these men to cheat or leave these women. The consequences are more unhappiness, broken families, unhappy children, etc.

    7. What about Gay porn? No objectification of women; no family to wreck if the guy is single. In fact, there's no sex act, per se, on the part of the viewer. I'm not sure the Bible states its position with regard to voyeurism of digitized media. No doubt a passage will be found, which upon tortured interpretation, finds God disapproving and contemptuous of such pursuits.

  6. -3 there

    natschuster and Eugen forget that the purpose of pornography is to arouse sexual pleasure. Please spare us the hypothetical bad consequences. Women enjoy it too, don't you know?

  7. Pedant:

    Tobacco, illegal drugs, gambling, also give people pleasure, But they have negative consequences.

  8. Pedant, whining hordes of politically correct feminists say pornography is exploiting female body. You can disagree with us when we say it but God help you if you disagree with them.

  9. natschuster Tobacco, illegal drugs, gambling, also give people pleasure, But they have negative consequences

    A lot of things can have negative consequences. Christianity teaches that we are "fallen" and intrinsically sinful, even children. It makes people feel guilty and ashamed of their sexuality and their humanity. It compels couples to remain in loveless, failed relationships. Need I go on?

    1. Ian:

      We weigh the benefits against the negative stuff in everything. In regards to pornography, the negatives far outweigh the benefits.

    2. Thank you, natschuster, for another of your uninformed opinions.

      (Or would you like to provide evidence to support your claim?)

    1. "If pornography consumption leads to more positive extramarital sex attitudes as the results of the panels suggest, pornography consumption may be a contributing factor in some divorces via extramarital sex behavior," the study states.

      Maybe not.
