There wasn't AIDS or HIV in the OT; are you sure about that? They may not have called it AIDS or HIV but it's certainly possible/probable that they had it. They should have listened? To what? Oh yeah, a shepherd who claimed he saw a burning bush and heard it talk to him.We are talking about STDs... not other sicknesses.. which I am well aware of. In the OT, there wasn't AIDS, HIV. But still, they should have listened as well.
Oh well, like I said earlier, you are free to choose what you will listen to.
I guess fighting off AIDS, and other STD's is what you want you future generation to do as well.
You're more than welcome to that. I'd rather not even catch those STD's.
Fighting off AIDS, yeah we're doing that. STD's if caught early can be cured. There'll be plenty of diseases for which to find cures for future generations. That's the great thing about evolution; just when you think you've cured a virus, it goes and mutates into something else that's resistant to the cure. And I'd rather not lock future generations into having a belief system. Philosophy and ethical behavior, definitely. Religion, don't think so.
Neither would I, that's why I've always practiced safe sex.
