Oh dear god(no pun intended), please tell me this video is not discrediting science by using faith. This is basically saying science is a fail and we should all just have faith?

I'm sorry, I will NEVER BLINDLY follow something with pure faith. I'm a man of evidence and factual proof. I will follow science any time before having any faith in any gods or divine entities etc...

I am speaking as a highly trained professional who works with people who have been sexually abused and unfortunately with people who have themselves sexually abused others.

You and some people who have commented after you seem to think that it should be ok to "show pronography to children... it's the parent's decision... and what right does our government have to interfere...".

Let's look at that closer? We know from case studies and nationwide (and international in some cases) surveys and studies that children's exposure to illicit sex through real life viewing or through pornographic material is correlated with earlier sexual experiences, higher rates of teen pregnancy, higher rates of teen STD's, and sexual deviance (particularly in schools)

We also know is it is linked in children to Acute-Stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, higher rates of depression, higher rates of suicide, and higher rates of other mental health diagnoses than not being exposed to such materials.

Thank God the government steps in when it is supposed to (to actually protect its citizen's from something) when people like you are walking around thinking it's ok to let a 5 year old watch porn.

Did you also know its a Child Protective issue when there is domestic violence in the home that the child has witnessed? Or do you think thats just an issue between parents, and the government has no right to interfere with what goes on in your home? Some things, whether you believe it or not, have been found to have serious mental health effects on children (witnessing domestic violence, viewing pornography, etc).

Not all children are affected the same, and some exhibit no symptoms. But being "okay" with things that have been found to cause innocent children harm is the thing that's ****ed up.
I never said letting a 5 year old watch porn is ok. You must not have read my whole comment. I also said that when the parent feels the child IS MATURE ENOUGH, then they should know about sex. I DID NOT say that when the child turns 5 he can watch porn.

I learned about sex at a very early age as well because it's EVERYWHERE and I was curious about it so my mom sat me down and discussed it with me, what it was, what it means between people, the positive and negatives of it, etc...and guess what? I'm not some man-whore sleeping with all the chicks I can get and have a bunch of STD's and feel like I was sexually abused at all. It's the kids that DON'T get lectured from their parents, and they just hear all the talk from school or their little friends and they totally get a wrong message and THOSE are the kids that end up having a baby when their 13 and getting STD's from having multiple sex partners, etc...

The biggest problem I have seen with the distribution of games is that, lets say comparably, that games are like a vhs movie, adult content historically was separated and placed in a different location within the physical building that sold or rented the material. That places such as the Gamestops and Wal-Marts of the world, place Mickey Mouse next to Madworld on the store shelf creates a brand confusion (this example is Wii) that could be construed as being intentional and has led to a wide spread belief that video games and toys are in fact the same thing, of course, this is wrong. So long as retailers and renters choose to not physically separate titles based on content then it becomes incumbent on the publishers and legislation to attach further warnings on the box to point out that there is, in fact, a difference in content, and a different target audience. Sadly with companies like EA marketing M rated content to minors the gulf is only widened and that failure to point out a difference now falls to the political body, which caters to the lowest common denominator. The lack of precise self regulation begs the intervention of gross inaccuracies.

While we're at it, let's just go ahead and put a sign om every single door of every single vehicle warning all occupants of imminent death if someone makes a stupid decision. Seriously? Do they really feel this is needed? This is absolutely pathetic.

It's not to protect a consumer from choice, it is to protect a retailer and publisher from possible causal links associated from actions taken by those who also happen to play games. The point is to protect the retailer and publisher from being dragged into court for possible negligence from poor marketing.

These warnings were added to cigarettes to indemnify big tobacco from the plethora of class action law suits resulting from marketing products to minors not to stop people from using there products. As time has marched on those warnings have been relaxed as the product marketing has become more responsible... as an example in many states try to purchased flavored cigarettes or cloves... you can't. In those states the warning is now relaxed to states, the smoking by pregnant women is bad... not that it will cause cancer.

What you are describing is not science. Good science does prove causation and also provides explanation for that causation. This does neither.
There's a difference between causing cancer, or increasing the chance to get cancer.
Smoking does not cause cancer.

Science proved that Coca Cola Light can even increase the chance of cancer because of the sweetner they used, which at first was meant as a medicine.
There was even a science that 'proved' that Milk could increase cancer, even a paper that bread could increase the chance of cancer.

From your anti-gun standpoint, it's been suggested in multiple studies, and common sense, that anyone will use a gun eventually, if you're paranoid enough to buy a gun to protect yourself or think your desperately need it, you're paranoid enough to use it if somebody looks at you in a way you do not approve.
