REPLY #2 TO|
Boldfaced statements are parts of the original essay (or a subsequent reply) to which the respondent has directed his comments.
Italicized/emphasized comments prefaced by (R) are those of the respondent and are presented unedited.
My replies appear under the respondent's comments in blue text and are prefaced by my initials (MB).
(R) I am firmly against sex with the exception of masturbation. It is a diabolical mechanism which guarantees the proliferation of humanity.
(MB) You obviously haven't had sex with some of the women that *I* have! :-)
(R) The only way I see for us to escape the endless cycle of birth-death-rebirth is to eliminate the vehicles. I realize we
will just be shuttled to some other habitable third dimension lifeform but I insist you have to eliminate them as you confront
(MB) Well...until it can be demonstrated that those things exist, I'm afraid that I'll settle for having sex. After all, I might as well have something to repent should the need arise.
(R) If we all lived like truly celibate 'monks' it wouldn't be long before we could incarnate elsewhere and I am all for that!
Onward and outward!!
(MB) For now, this will likely have to remain an individual choice rather than any prevailing social trend.
