The evidence is in your hands. What evidence? I see an iPad. Are you saying that the iPad IS the scientific method? Or is the iPad a product of the scientific method? If it’s a product of the method, then you are using a product or element of the method to prove itself. That’s circular reasoning—yo...

If you can show that something is reliable, which the method is supposedly known to be, then you can also show that it is rational without need for evidence, or facts outside subjective awareness. If that is true, then it is rational that evidence is not necessary to justify belief. But the process...

What are you on about? The law says you can get married at 18 if you want to. No law dictates marriage at 30. In Mississippi, you cannot get married before 21 regardless of gender. To get married earlier requires both sets of parents to give permission AND it had to be approved by a judge. You’ll f...

Marriage is a commitment to another person. You make vows to be there for them and stick with them. How can a teenager know who is compatible with them for the rest of their life? That's nuts. I hate to say it, but, honestly, that’s one of those things that doesn’t get easier the older you get. I’m...

I want it shown for the record that AngelRho has defended child marriage on the basis of religion, and thus as reasoning for the idea that minors can consent (with adults) because: "teenagers are much, much more mature and aware than adults give them credit for. I wish we lived in a society th...

I’ve never met anyone who let a 15 year old girl get married. The laws are on the books to establish what parents are ALLOWED to do in the way of protecting their kids. It doesn’t establish a requirement that girls get married as soon as they turn 15. To even do that, parents have to get court appr...

I do not believe ANY underaged sex is appropriate, regardless of age. Adults should know better. You say that, but the majority of your post is saying that AOC is just a number, that it doesn't mean they are or not able consent, and I guess defending that 15 year old girls can get married. I think ...

The weakness of screaming for evidence is no one can force you to accept evidence when you have it. Interesting that you say we scream. How many people do we know of who raised their voices to that level when asking for evidence? I can't think of one. Good point ToughDiamond. It's like AngelRho is ...

The point being that it’s illogical to say that young people cannot consent. Young people have sex with each other all the time, so it’s not really about consent. It’s about whether you believe sex with an adult in a position of trust and authority really is safe and acceptable. Yeah, and that shou...

. Even so though, I don't think students have so much power over teachers that it would ever be justifiable for a teacher to have any sexual contact with a student, even if they argued the student pressured them to. A teacher being accused of doing such if they haven't though, that is a different m...

^ I remember that case from the 80s where the parents of a bunch of kids at an elementary school were able to coach their children to make false accusations of sexual abuse. A lot of people's lives were ruined before it was revealed to be a bunch of bunk. Also, I imagine it's more difficult for mal...

Oh, I’m sorry, I don’t recall naming names. :lol: If you fit that description, that’s not my problem. :mrgreen: At any rate, the whole “evidence, evidence” does come across as a little screechy at times. By that I mean specifically those who demand evidence with no intention of ever accepting it. N...

Yes but you initially brought up your mistaken belief that students have more authority than teachers in response to someone bringing up teacher on student sexual harrassment/rape. What mistaken belief? Oh, that student’s have more authority? I never meant that they have more authority. They do hav...

The weakness of screaming for evidence is no one can force you to accept evidence when you have it. I’ve already stated in depth the problems of demanding evidence. If evidence is that important, please explain to me why anyone should use the scientific method when there is no evidence for it. Inte...

Ok...So you are arguing that because you're paranoid the kids you teach want to get you fired, you think that means generally speaking it's really kids who have authority over the teachers, and therefore its not really the teachers fault if they fall for a student and have sex with them. I’m not ar...
