  1. The sexual morality of traditional religion tends to be based, not on solid
    ethical principles, but on a set of taboos about what kinds of sex God does
    and doesn’t want people to have. And while the sex-positive community
    offers a more thoughtful view of sexual morality, it still often frames
    sexuality as positive by seeing it as a spiritual experience. What are some
    atheist alternatives to these views? How can atheists view sexual ethics
    without a belief in God? And how can atheists view sexual transcendence
    without a belief in the supernatural?

  2. I’m not sure what makes her think that CHRISTIAN parents, believe that sex
    is “dirty and disgusting”, and teach that to their children. I’ve never
    heard of this before. She’s definitely using VERY rare or EXTREME examples,
    and DECEPTIVELY – APPLYING these to CHRISTIANITY OVERALL. HOW can ANY
    HONEST & INTELLIGENT Person,ALLOW THEMSELVES to ACTUALLY BELIEVE such
    MANIPULATED BS??? 

  3. This woman has not read the Bible on the topic of sex. There are idiots out
    there in the “name of God” that has made really dumb statements about what
    can and cannot be done regarding the matter, but God only set standards
    that would honor his name, not things that would disgust us Christians…
    She is supposing that I am a Christian because I believe I have similar
    feelings to what Jesus taught so I’m going to follows Christ teaching. I
    think I am starting to see how truth is rejected because we want our own
    logic to be justified…

  4. In the rest of the World, I think problems have been compounded in the
    modern age, where sexual customs, attitudes, myths and taboos that arose
    from a village or traditional setting, struggle to stay relevant by
    imposing itself into the modern World as a social streaming and social
    engineering mechanism. More so with the introduction of Western Scientific
    educations that blasted away centuries worth of social stratification and
    allowed for social mobility overnight (with an education providing keys to
    status and luxury in the modern age, versus other virtues, qualities, or
    assets that arguably have become less valuable today).

    So that sexual activity (through the ages of sexual initiation, teens and
    pre-teens, which often still remains uninformed in many parts of the World)
    has been used as some kind of a yardstick to channel and shunt individuals
    to their designated posts in society (sector, how high up the ranks they
    rise, and equity or holding capacity across lifetime, all highly relevant
    to society at large) .

    Who wears a “French cap” (oldest form of contraception) and who sends whom
    down skid-row (For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge), with degree of curvature of
    the female spine and angle of pelvis during intercourse, affecting
    (deliberate or unintended) anal penetration . Which when achieved assigns
    percentiles of your population into the less desirable positions of society
    supposedly (upon fulfilling other criteria or conditions, which of course
    can just as easily be manipulated).

    So this myth goes anyway, which if true, suggests that psycho-sexual
    metrics has been secretly applied to organize society by what goes on
    “under the covers”. This even as a superstitious myth, is a very powerful
    tool indeed. Yet needless to say, is most improbable (unless there was an
    effective means of census and surveillance, which even the most state of
    the art technologies today would have problems with). Moreover, if there
    actually were organizations (Banks, Capitalists, Governments) conducting
    themselves by these standards and regulating society in this way, without
    first making it common knowledge, this would be decidedly unethical and
    immoral, as well as quite likely illegal.

  5. Great talk. This was one of the best explanation about the transcendence of
    sex:
    we have words and make them to poetry, we have sounds and make them to
    music, we have reproduction and make it to sex.

  6. Miss skipticon said very true , almost obvious . Atheism makes more sence
    than Genisis , the prophets and new Jerusalem .

  7. Love this talk by Greta Christina on atheism and sexuality: “Atheism and
    Sexuality” Greta Christina Skepticon 3

  12. and you have still not offered any explanation as to how something complex
    enough to design and create out wonderfully complex universe could have
    come about? You just assume if I can not understand it GOD DID IT. If you
    can do the above in a rational scientific manner I MIGHT consider what you
    say. until then, “keep your superstitions deep inside your mental prison
    and let us grownups make our own decisions.”

  13. MRI testing has proven that religious cognitive behavior stems from an
    evolved neuron pathway disorder which effects the need for protection,
    authority and adoration. It also reflects a slight form of dementia which
    culminates thoughts of wish thinking and search for delusional superstition
    to effectively obtain security through solidarity with kin like individuals
    which could afford them solace and reinforcement by proselytization.

  14. wo wo wo, not “I’ve just had a babby” What the hell? What about you had a
    babby therefore I don’t wanna have sex with you any more? If someone ever
    denies you sex, when they would normally do it with you why not have sex
    with someone else?

  15. We didn’t evolve from Apes nor monkeys. Apes are in other words anthropoid
    mammals and monkeys are primates. And humans are homo sapiens. You made a
    huge categorization error. The big bang wasn’t an explosion it was an
    expansion of space-time. Typical mistakes of a science illiterates. With
    monstrous mistake like that how would someone possibly take your arguments
    seriously. Since the difference of a troll and you, isn’t much.

  16. You must live in a different world to me. 80% of everyone I see are
    atheists and boy there are some ugly atheists – many nerds in speckled
    cardigans coming out of the Skeptics Society and have you been to North
    Korea lately?

  17. In other words, Darwin’s theories were indifferent from those of say,
    Lamarck – who thought Giraffes stretched their necks while reaching for
    leaves – because he had missed out completely on the nature of sexuality as
    the determinator, as the source of variety and the mechanism of gene mixing
    etc. Which is to say Darwin didn’t HAVE a theory of evolution. He saw that
    life Evolved – pointed out by Lamarck too, years before – but he offered
    nothing new. Until Wallace sent HIS in for publishing.

  18. Greta Cristina can kiss my ass. Yes, i know, i’m a fucking misogynist. Blah
    Blah Blah!

  19. And what is misogynistic about anything I said? Is it misogyny to point out
    the guys side? To notice that sex with a vagina that has had a baby pushed
    through it is far less pleasurable than with one that hasn’t? The bit that
    gets me is the bit after when she says, just so you know I’ve had a kid, I
    noticed, I visited the exit wound no need to tell me.

  20. ???? Well first my initial point was, you just had a baby therefore I don’t
    wanna have sex with you. “As to why you wouldn’t just find someone else.
    The answer is: you love that person, are devoted to them, and can wait a
    bit. Oh, and aren’t an asshole.” Well one you seem already decided I am an
    asshole so pff. Can I wait a bit? Should I? Do I love anyone? Am I devoted
    to them? If so wouldn’t they be kind enough not to ruin their vagina? Am I
    ignorant of child birth, no thats why I’m grossed out

  21. As a theist I can interpret the ancient book anyway I want to since it is
    frigging ambiguous. Since God is not held to any moral standards
    whatsoever, I can kill in the name of God. For you to think I need to find
    a verse in scripture justify my moral thinking, is problematic.

  22. The broccoli analogy made me smile. When I was sixteen or so, I came up
    with a similar analogy, though my vegetable of personal revulsion was lima
    beans.

  23. It just proves that something can be equally made up and believed,
    otherwise we are lacking our own intelligent design and revert to name
    calling, bullying, public ridicule, slander, or worse – violence to force
    others to see it our way.

  24. I don’t know that I agree. Not necessarily the whole Christian thing, but
    in this specific instance they may be on to something. Look at things like
    the divorce rate (and who is filing for them), the amount of people in the
    welfare system (you have to pay attention, because they divide up the
    statistics), incarceration rates, so on and so forth. Even with the
    availability of birth control, there are an alarming number of single
    parent households. Statistically, this has not been a good thing.

  25. and no doubt the proper way of punishing someone for sex outside of
    marriage was death. The Bible is very good at killing people for everything
    decided as “immoral”.

  26. He was beaten and tortured in our place? Wait.. who was going to beat us up
    if jesus never came?

  27. jesus is coming back any day and this women refuses to chose jesus and
    continues to promote atheism. those who go to hell will have no one but
    themselves to blame. she could chose jesus right now and be saved, instead
    she continues to spit on jesus and all thats holy.

  28. Are you punking us? Did you get molested and abused as a child? You said
    you were friends with a six year old? You actually put out a comment
    basically saying that you are a phedofile.

  29. It’s really up-lifting to hear such sensible and positivist pro-sex
    activism coming from a WOMAN. There, I said it. Seriously though, I was
    raised by an angry divorcee art student and I was born in the early ”70s –
    many early memories of viciously angry divorcee women rant about cutting
    their ex-s dick off, just a whole shit-load on nasty female-chauvanist
    behaviour through-out my childhood. Then I went through 2 relationships,
    13yrs and 7yrs, with flakey hippie self-styled feminist types. CONT

  30. You’re really blowing things out of proportion, aren’t you my dear chubby?
    It was purely an observation on my part. I’m relatively happy and quite
    satisfied with life in general. I haphazardly clicked on this video by
    mistake to view a woman flailing her flabby arms waiving them
    simultaneously in the wind expecting an arriving airflow to lift her up
    into the heavens! BUT there wasn’t any wind fit enough that could
    accomplish such a task!! She should have at least worn appropriate
    clothing!

  31. If you’re referring to my comment possibly, I’m sorry but I just can’t get
    past her flapping fat arms! No offense but she makes valid points in a
    boring way! If you want to hear a professional spokesperson on these issues
    tune in to: CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS DEBATES…

  32. Let’s look at her broccoli analogy. What if there is evidence that you are
    more likely to get a disease from eating broccoli than eating some other
    kinds of food? Should broccoli then be regulated?

  33. Fortunately agnosticism, ignosticism, atheism and other non-religious
    philosophies are growing. Organized religion is dying. Slowly but surely.
    You’re in no position to say what fools believe considering the fact that
    you’re obviously no professor or expert in anything. Your idea that Jesus
    is coming back any day now has been around since medieval times. The
    peasants in medieval Europe used to believe that Jesus would come back and
    relieve their suffering. But he didn’t. We’re on our own.

  34. Are you seriously basing your entire view regarding this matter on one
    person’s vagina? WTF?
