This post might not seem closely related to Darwin, and I am aware of the tendency to deride folks who make too big a claim for all-embracing theories. I get that. However, this is about something really important, namely sexual chaos and its costly repercussions in many spheres of life, from mental health and child abuse to crime, the tax and benefit system and housing.
We all act on our beliefs, that is axiomatic. This is equally true for a sincere Christian gritting his teeth and forgiving somebody who hates him as Jesus commanded as it is for a sexual abuser of children who believes that he has the right to follow his urges. He must believe that or he would not do it. Unless, perhaps he is a passive agent of deterministic forces beyond his control. In which case, you might think, why criticise him?
and nightime turned into day as we were dancing closely
all of a sudden I lost control as I held her charms
and I caressed her, kissed her
told her I'd die before I let her out of my arms.”
