The average Pygmy dies at age 23! I sure hope they don’t follow Western age of consent laws over there. They’d all go extinct. They’d damn well better start knocking up their girls at age 15 or they’ll go the way of the dinosaurs.
This also shows that the modern “minors can’t consent to sex” and “all sex between minors and adults is wrong, evil, and pedophilia and should be punished by death” is not just wrong, but it’s also insane. What if the Pygmies practiced this idiocy? They’d die out. Is that what the bonehead West wants?
“Minors can’t consent to sex” and “All sex between minors and adults is wrong, evil, and pedophilia and should be punished by death” are not scientific statements. In fact, they are wildly anti-scientific.
Science doesn’t wade into the quicksand of human morality. That’s for the moral philosophers, the cops, and the legal system to decide.
And they’re not even true statements. The second is a moral judgement, and those are never true or even false. They’re simply outside of science.
The first pretends to be science but it’s false on its face, and even in the more nuanced sense, it’s anti-scientific as there’s plenty of evidence it’s false.
