The most succinct and simplistic example of why "slippery slope" arguments fail off the bat.

Apart from the 'slippery slope' logical fallacy, the Babble says the Jesus was tempted in the wilderness. Therefore, unless you're willing to argue Christ was a sinner thoughts un-acted upon can't be sins.

Is there a connection between porn and pedophilia? People get horny. People watch porn. Not the same as killing. You have a very slippery slope

Poe? PLEASE be one... I don't think I could bear it if anyone was genuinely this damn stupid...

Y!A is covered in a thick layer of trolls, I'm not worried about this one.

The leap of logic from watching porn to becoming a paedophile positively spans the cosmos. And then killing 'and stuff'. Perhaps S&B meant 'snuff'! LOL This is just too funny for words.

Impressive. I didn't know that you could get that slope that slippery.

Beer leads to heroin. In fact, mother's milk leads to everything!_______________George

Uh, if that is your personal experience then you are a very, very scary person!

Jump to conclusions, much? Porn does not turn you into a pedophile, stupid.
Whenever I lust after other people, I remind myself I'm married, and look the other way. Problem solved.

I just love the nonchalant tone: "Then later on, you're a pedophile. Trufax are true."

Everything starts as a thought. Whenever you go to the races, you may get excited and bet money. After a while, you become addicted. Then later on, you'll start paying to fuck horses.
Or, if you want to look at it another way:
Everything starts as a thought. Whenever you feel bad about things, you may get sad and read the Bible. After a while, you become addicted. Then later on, you're a batshit fundie who bombs abortion clinics.
Kind of the same with killing and other stuff.
There. Fixed it for you. TWICE. Now sit down and have yourself a nice cup of shut the fuck up.
10/2/2010 5:47:24 AM
Ah, so this sort of explains why fundies are so evil... what with their constant, graphic thinking of gay sex, abortions, pedophilia and mass murder massacre of Muslims. They spend all of their time thinking of those issues. No wonder they're never happy.
Yeah. It explains a lot!
Except maybe, just maybe, correlation doesn't imply causation.

Not everything starts with a thought. For example, your post.
10/2/2010 6:02:33 AM
Everything starts with a thought. Whenever you drink sacramental wine, you might think it tastes good and want more, so you try other alcoholic beverages. After a while you become addicted. Then later on, you're screaming and beating on your wife.
Kind of the same with killing and stuff.

Weeeeeeeeeeee! That was a fun ride on the Slippery Slope.

You may be onto something.
1. Young boy's mother thinks about how nice it would be to have a priest in the family; he is then pushed towards the priesthood.
2. Young man attends the seminary.
3. Young priest attains congregation.
4. Priest fondles, suckles, and anally probes young boys.
5. Church pays molestation victims hush-money.
6. Priest moved to unsuspecting new congregation, cycle begins anew...
7. Molestation victim, now a disturbed adult, embarks on a three-state killing spree.

I think this deserves some kind of award for being a total non-answer.
10/2/2010 6:36:27 AM
And the award for greatest Non Sequitur Slippery Slope goes to... The Skin & Bone Diet!
10/2/2010 6:40:29 AM
So thinking about something is the same as doing it? WTF??
10/2/2010 7:01:41 AM
That is what is truly stupid about this type of Christianity. On the one hand they keep telling us we have "free will" but on the other they condemn us for our thoughts. It's not like we are acting on them. Thinking of robbing the bank isn't the same as actually robbing it and only an idiot would think it is.
I've had "impure" thoughts about women for over forty years, and yet I have never assaulted one.

"Everything starts as a thought. Whenever you lust after other people, you may get horny and watch porn. After a while, you become addicted. Then later on, you're a pedophile.

Indeed. Just ask Tony Alamo and David Koresh. Both right-wing Fundamentalist Christians, just like you.
Me, I fap to pics of Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page. I play online "Quake IV" deathmatches occasionally. That's it, really.
And that's the difference. Certainly between you fundies and we Atheists.
'Porn = paedophilia'. Non-sequitur, much?

Everything starts as a thought. Whenever you lust after other people, you may get horny and watch porn. After a while, you become addicted. Then later on, you're a pedophile. Then you cut off your grandmother's head and have sex with her neck. Then you run naked in Times Square and go berserk with an Uzi. So don't start. Begin by avoiding the number "13". While you're counting everything - the number of steps between your bed and the bathroom, the number of words in a sentence in a newspaper, the number of slices you make in the tomato - you won't have time to fantasize about sex or killing your grandmother. If that's not enough, try making sure you always touch the light switch three times and say the word "teapot" before turning the light on, and taking three short breaths and one long one each time you breathe.
