I'm sorry if this has already been said, but I'll say it (possibly again).

Video games are a larger industry than music and movies. With that statistic, there is more likely to be a correlation between crime and someone who played video games, just because of the number of people that play some type of video game. To blame the video games is simply asinine. A few years ago, you might as well blame music, because more people listened to music than played video games.

My logic isn't faulty. I'm aware of the error here, it is the converse error if I'm not mistaken. It was simply to demonstrate the mindset of a scientist ;D

Confirmed for troll.
I do enjoy my occasional troll .

However, I still stand with mathematics. Science is flawed because people base decisions on correlation. Having something passed to require a warnings on video games is one example. Just because of a coincidence in a "study" occurs, people believe it is true. So I guess really, it isn't science that is all that bad, it is people's misconception of science. The intentions are good, but it can conclude what people want it to conclude, not what it should conclude. Once again, this case as an example. They use coincidence as a scapegoat for bad backgrounds. Though, math would stay definite, and no new research would be able to shake it.

Wow, in 4th grade i was playing GTA 3 and VC on my xbox, and im a man of peace and god. We also should put a warning label on forks saying that prolonged exposure to forks might cause castration, and we also shiould put a warning label on warning labels, otherwise we might become overprotec- o wait ****!!!

PS. This explains science

You can think it's "****ed up" all you want. Knowing what sex is / being taught about sex is a very different thing than watching pornography. I am not just speaking from my baseless opinions... 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.

All that attempt at logic is fine and dandy in theory, but in real life it doesnt work like it does on paper. Its up to the parents to decide whats good for kids, i highly doubt there is a parent that would go to gamestop look at a game entitled GTA IV (which is a federal offense, grand theft auto) and say "hmm this looks suitable for sally/jimmy, even though theres boobs, cars, and guns on the front". come on youre LOOKING for every possible excuse to prove your right when your logic is fallicious at BEST.

Also, my step dad had an ****** brother who showed him porn at age 3 or 4, he turned out fine.
