Believing in intelligent design — or in my case, Creation — doesn’t make someone a nutjob.

Need some last-minute Halloween costume inspiration? Here you go. 

cosplay at its funniest

It’s funny to dress up as Muslim women and disparage another’s culture? How very classically white.

They’re…… they’re ghosts….

Why would anyone assume the people in the top picture are dressed as anything other than ghosts?

Biologists will tell you life started about 3 billion years ago, where you want to draw the arbitrary line of where individual human life starts is up to you, I could make a case for it starting anywhere from meiosis onwards. Where you want to believe a Human life starts is entirely up to you but you should probably acquaint yourself with the facts first.

Are you the same anon from earlier?

An individual human life has a definite starting point and ending point. The field of embryology, which stems from biology, studies the beginnings of life, especially life pre-birth. Embryologists are widely in agreement that the life and development of an individual human begins at conception. Practically any embryology textbook you pick up will say that.

That’s tough. Our first instinct is always to try to fix the problem, but sometimes when there’s no apparent cause to sadness we can’t do that.

I would say just listen, and ask the friend what they need.

If the sadness-for-no-reason persists for weeks or months, it may be depression, in which case you should encourage your friend to seek professional help.

Not encouraging them to have sex, but acknowledging that it happens and making sure they know how to help prevent unwanted pregnancies.

For Christians, I recommend the education outlined in this book. The book goes over how both “comprehensive sex education” and “abstinence-only sex education” are founded on erroneous assumptions and are inherently flawed. It also provides a guide for Christian parents to teach Biblical manhood and womanhood, and that’s what I would recommend.

For a public school or other setting, sex education needs to both educate teens about what sex is and how pregnancy happens and how STDs are spread and ALSO let them know it’s okay to wait and tell them that it is possible to wait for marriage rather than assuming they’ll all have sex anyway. Humans are capable of reason, and we can in fact control our impulses.

When I took a personal development class Freshman year we took a sex ed unit, and my teacher was Lutheran (keep in mind I go to a public high school). I wanted to shout for joy and loved hearing her teach, because throughout learning about contraceptives she CONSTANTLY reminded us we are under NO obligation to have sex as teenagers, and even provided statistics on why celibacy is healthier than casual/premarital sex. She often reminded us the contraceptives she showed us were not sure to work failsafes against pregnancy and STDs, and always said abstinence is the only contraceptive that works 100% of the time. She did not give out condoms, either, because she felt it pressures teens into having sex, or pressures teens into seeing sex as a normal thing that can and should be enjoyed on a regular basis as a source purely for pleasure, and not have any emotional element involved. She constantly told us sex is a beautiful thing that brings people together and creates life, and always encouraged us to consider ALL the consequences of sex before we do it. It was perfect.

That’s beautiful. That’s how it should be done. Go Lutheran teachers!

The book I referenced is written by a Lutheran grandma who did the research and made herself an expert on how sex education came about and how it’s being taught in order to protect her grandkids and help other parents teach their kids correctly. It’s amazing, but it’s also a little depressing when you see how far corruption has seeped into the church when it comes to how we talk about sex.

Anonymous said: My question is one that I hope won't offend, because I really respect you: In terms of abortion, I notice large numbers commonly used to describe the "genocide." 43 Million unborn children murdered in a year, etc. I can't help but wonder how we could have possibly sustained that many more humans upon the earth, when we're already starving, killing each other, and fighting for space. Your answer may simply be "God provides" but I would love to know if you could answer more in depth? Thanks!

We aren’t nearly as overpopulated as people think. If you go to POP.org, they have a lot of information on population growth curves and what it would mean to have so many more people. There are also people who do use abortion as a form of birth control, and they might find a way of preventing the conception of a new life rather than preventing the new life from being born.

Basically, if abortion wasn’t around, many people might be more careful to avoid pregnancy in the first place. That doesn’t mean we wouldn’t have unplanned pregnancies, but we might have fewer.
