It's an act of biology.
Some sex acts are sinful, others are acceptable, some are beautiful and there are even those that are commandments (or good deeds) in some religions.
They are all fun (at least for some of the participants)!
You say that like there's no overlap.
Kind of reminds me of that quote on the Simpsons:
Reverend: Get a divorce.
Marge: But isn't divorce a sin?
Reverend: Oh Marge, practically everything's a sin. Have you ever sat down and read the Bible? Technically we're not even supposed to go to the bathroom.
is the bathroom thing a joke
or is it technically true?
and if it's true
It's a joke. :P There's no way it could be true the same way sex alone couldn't be a sin either.
The more a man is an artists, poet, thinker, the less randy he becomes.
Only the brute is good at coupling, because copulation is like poetry to the weak of mind.
To copulate is to enter into another but the artist never emerges from himself and so has no time for fucking.
Its a sin if you say or think that is. Whats right and wrong, we can choose regardless of what anything thats said in the world by anyone. We once were human, but not anymore.
What do you mean "not anymore" -
is this a biblical reference? Evolutionary? Help me out here 'cause I think like where this is going.
Sin is imaginary. So it's an act of human.
sin may be subjective
but it is not imaginary
sin means to transgress a religious or moral principle
not everyone has religious principles
but pretty much everyone has moral principles
so almost everyone on Earth (both religious and non-religious whether you're theist/atheist/etc.) would agree that killing a bunch of toddlers is a sin
P: I love the color blue
S: your opinion is imaginary
P: No, my opinion isn't imaginary. My opinion is subjective
If one doesn't believe in divinity, sin is nonexistent. Sin means...
Nope nevermind. I'm not going down definition drive again.
sin means to go against a religious and/or moral principle
doesn't almost everyone have moral principles?
Sin is a transgression against divine law.
"any act regarded as such a transgression, especially a willful or deliberate violation of some religious or moral principle."
This is why I didn't want to play the definition game. My dictionary says otherwise. Generally, people are talking about a god when they talk of sin. I'm going with that definition.
What if I say, "throwing away chess pie is a sin"? It's obvious there's no deity involved in that. I've simply acknowledged a wrong-doing according to my own personal moral principles. Other people might not agree but that does not make the sin imaginary.
For me, sin implies more than just wrongdoing. But language is subjective so blah blah blah you get the picture lol
why don't you admit defeat and call it a day?
Throwing away chess pie is a sin, btw.
Well I can see how someone would think so. It's wrongful to waste food.
I got the joke, though.
Because there is no winner or loser. I was explaining my definition of the word. So I'll just call it a day at that.
And here I thought I was the party pooper on amirite
Looks like you've taken that title
good for me
No, I think you were quite accurate before :P
Act of human, but if its forceful then its sin.
if it's forceful
I would define that as rape to be specific
and to clear misunderstanding
Forceful sex is not sex, it's rape. Let's refer to it as such.
Also, I'm pretty sure the major religions don't really condemn rape at all. Their gods don't condemn it. So it's not a sin even if you are religious. Any condemnation of rape stems from secular moral philosophy.
It is interesting that rape is not specifically condemned by most of the world's religions. The Bible frequently condemns "fornicators" and "sexual immorality" in general but rape is never singled out. On a list of types of people who won't enter heaven: murders, drunkards, homosexuals...but "rapists" is nowhere to be found.
Not only that, but it's more or less condoned. Or at the very least viewed as a crime upon property rather than a crime upon another human being. Like the verse that says that if a man rapes a virgin girl he has to pay her father and marry her.
Go forth and multiply.. Not real specific as to methods.
Of course there is the possibility of misinterpretation and it was actually "go fourth and multiply", indicating that practice is required. :)
That was actually supposed to be a math lesson to encourage the multiplication of numbers.
Well i know that but when she was alive the cheetahs weren't calling her a sl-t.
are we human or are we dancer
That amazing song
It's called are we human by the killers
I don't even know what that means? It is not a sin.
it is not a sin. I don't like when peopel use people as living sex toys,though.
act of human!!
An act of human doesn't make sense. It's how we reproduce you dense fuck.
I don't believe in sin. Humans do it. So it follows that it's an act of humanity.
so do animals
and in a way, bacteria
and all those other good stuff in our little world
I didn't say it was created/owned by humans.
Also bacteria do not reproduce sexually, but asexually. Yet, I did just learn about bacterial conjugation. That's an exchange of genetic information. It's not reproduction since no new organism is created. But it's sort of similar. Even so, not sex.
Wouldn't an "act of something" be the same as "an act done by something"?
Sex is done by plants and animals. Thus, sex is an act of plants and animals.
I didn't say you said it was created/owned by humans
"in a way, bacteria"
So... What was the goal of the comment?
to say what I had to say
If sex was a true sin it would be more enjoyable... :)
Are animals sinning when they have sex? I saw this thing online, it talked about a cheetah named Supermom, who's DNA is in 10% of cheetahs worldwide. I think it's kind of funny, how if a human woman had that much sex, she'd be dubbed as a whore queen, yet this cheetah is essentially a hero to her race. I think we as humans make sex a taboo, and maybe we should think about that.
I doubt the cheetahs think of her as a supermom
it's not like they know her DNA is in 10% of their kind
any act becomes "sinful" if it is done entirely without beneficial purpose or for selfish reasons
Entirely without beneficial purpose eh? What of those who murder to get a person out of others' lives? They are doing it for others' benefit.
excellent point, murder becomes heroic if the public wants it, but if a single "selfish" person is to do it, it becomes unacceptable, i am not trying to justify murder
I know. I'm saying, what if a small group of people want it? Another guy does it to help them. Is it justified then?
most will probably say, that the small group of people is at fault here, and the guy who does it, whether because he had to, or a perfect excuse- "duty" ,in someways, is exclude. i personally think that acts such as murder or sex are done wrongfully when the other person commits the act because he wants to and he can, thereby stepping and putting aside what the other person has to say, in short a murderer or a rapist is an excessively selfish person to me.
Yet, wouldn't that mean that anyone trying to help others gets no credit?
indeed, thus the idea is born that we should help others without waiting for asomething in return
Credit isn't much of something in return. Even so, better for the people doing actions to get credit for the actions than someone sitting around.
Tis like asking if sex between rabbits, squirrels, or mouse lemurs is immoral. We are animals. Rabbits don't even question an invisible possibly real deity, they just go at it and enjoy their short time on this planet. Makes me want to go act like a rabbit for a couple weeks. :)
Sin is when you break god's laws. But that is not a natural thing.
Human nature is... essentially everything that people are capable of. None of it is unnatural.
So that being said... it's the latter. Assuming god doesn't exist and sin is an entirely man-made concept which is most likely the case.
This question is an act of horrible grammar.
an act of nature, actually
Either way it is good.
It’s a part of being alive.
Depends on your beliefs; if you believed in reincarnation, then reproduction would not be essential, thus making sex a sin.
My general understanding of reincarnation is that you can get reincarnated into anything living. With that being, the population would slowly digress as people get reincarnated into non-human beings. Also, the people that are reincarnated into a human again still have to be born, making sex a necessity.
