Quote# 13423

Think of it like this (stupid analogy coming up :D): if you are allowed to live in a room full of candy and eat anything you want (:P), as long as you don't eat any Reses in the meantime. If you do, you and all your friends will be banned from the candy room. Simple as that. But the rest of the room is all great! I mean, free candy, man. That's probably the best deal you can ever get. The only restriction is Reses.

Well you live there happily with your friend for a few days, when one day, your friend (hey, it would've been you eventually, I bet. If not, kudos to you. :P) eats a single Reses cup, because one of the maintenance guys gone bad had told him that they tasted good. He tells you to try one, because it tastes great.

So you eat one (okay, maybe today you wouldn't, knowing what would happen, but these were Adam and Eve here :P) and then you are banned from the candy room. Simple as that.

Now of course, there's candy in the outside world, but you have screwed up on the unlimited supply.

People just keep eating Reses over the years. Eventually, it is just genetically implemented into our system! Every single living [wo]man is born having eaten Reses. It's built-in to mankind.

Mankind has become so poisoned with Reses over the years that we have killed the man who gave us the candy room to begin with! Now he is dead...

But three days later, he is back! He was dead, but now he is alive, because he's the candy man, man! [it goes on like this]

stupid analogy coming up

By Darwin! You are correct! That was totally stupid!

I don't like nuts in the first place, so this isn't an issue.

Also: one of the other maintenance guys could have removed the Reeses before these people came into the room.

Your metaphor has backfired.

I'd eat a Reses -whatever they are- almost straight away just so I could get out of that Diabetes inducing jail and go for a decent curry.

Why was the forbidden candy left in the room to begin with? Why even give them the temptation to begin with. No Reses in the room no problems.

Not sure what Reses is, but I'm guessing you mean Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Still, your analogy is apt because the dictate that Adam and Eve should not eat the forbidden fruit is really stupid. If you were given a choice to have anything you want except one item, than that seems petty and arbitrary and totally in keeping with the kind of god you worship.

Stupid analogy, indeed.
So, you would rather eat candy all day, every day, than learn about sexuality? Good for you, or something...
