Ha, got your attention didn't I?
Some recent posts in other threads have reminded me of the unhealthy obsession religion has with sex. It seems most of the major religions are positively frantic over sex and how to control it. Why is this?
Of course I have a theory. First, evolution has given us many drives but few are more powerful than procreation - sex. If I had to order them I would say breathing and eating followed by sex and then everything else.
The inventors of gods and religions were clever people and realized that for religion to be a large part of human life it had to be right up there in importance with eating and sex. What better way to make religion important than to fill it with rules about eating and sex?
What do you think?
