    Speaking of intelligence, can you let Jim figure out what a boy is, before asking him to work on "men and women"?

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Obviously, if males have dominated women since the beginning of time they must have evolved to do so. That is why it has been that way all this time. So there is no reason to change it now. Give into your evolutionary drives JimL!

    Jim I just don't understand why you are so against the natural order of things!

    I am 76 and I have never really known any man, personally, who considered women inferior. So yes it is an unusual position.

    You keep making these moral judgements with no basis.
    All moral judgements have a basis. Theists will say it's God. Science will say its the natural evolution of human behaviour to ensure the survival of the family and community and cooperation so that the human species survives.

    Well we have thousands of years of human history to learn from, and primate history. Isn't nature great!

    Well obviously then men dominating women has survival value. I'm good with that, how about you?

    Not surprising you don't know this, since you can't even figure out what a boy is. :mile:
