    also now that you know what logic actually means try to use it properly
    logic is what makes sense making it logical. As someone has said in other threads, definitions change........ However my feelings will always be there

    3.) I don't believe we have unlocked the entire human potential, and are in fact hindering ourselves. No I don't have data to back it up. I have experiences. I've lived through my teems and into my 30's. I've dealt with people and society.
    4.)someone said society has nothing to do with it, but it does, I mean how can it not?
    5.) also the education system, maybe look at ways to change it so it focuses on basic needs like finances, survival skills aka eating, providing for yourself. At an early age. the human mind is a glorious thing, which hmm maybe is under utilized at the early stages.
    6.) Are you understanding what I'm saying?
    1.) but you havent? you havent provided one single solid rational "argument"
    2.) nope this will never happen lol
    3.) me neither which also has nothing to do with the fact that 13 does not equal 18
    4.) no it really doesnt, its very secondary to sciences, facts education, history etc
    5.) again where are you from this has been tried all through history this is why we have the age set like we do, id say every good parent/teacher tries this too. I know i do, they simply arent capable
    I know
    6.) yes i understand you are still failing to provide and sound, rational and or factual argument or logic

    I didnt say society doesnt have anything to do with it...I said that it doesnt *change* physiology and brain development...and the proof is everywhere that adolescents do not have well-developed judgement or impulse control. Too bad you didnt even bother to read the links but that's common in people that dont want to see anything that disproves their 'beliefs.' It's also a very 'adolescent' way of dealing with things you dont like...ignoring them. (Still not on board with 34)

    Many people pointed out that it would make 13 yr olds much more vulnerable to sexual abuse and predators...they'd be 'legal.'

    So we'd end up with MORE pregnant 13 yr olds...by choice and by force. How could that possibly be good? For them or for society?

    1.) no its factually not as the definition already proves, sorry ignoring facts and posting lies wont work
    2.) subjective definitions change, the definition of logic is not going to change. AGain its things like this that make it impossible to believe your are 34.
    3.) your feelings are meaningless to facts

    like i said earlier

    there are rapist, murders, child molesters etc that all think and feel thier actions were logical, they were wrong

    From his posts, he firmly believes that the 13 old is capable of having the good judgement to do so.

No one could make the numbers work in any reasonable fashion, unless they lived with their parents. Jobs out of high school pay little. Jobs for 13 yr olds? Arent even legal, lol.

    And you know what? Everybody decided it was a really bad idea. Funny...we were smart and decided to still BE kids WHILE we were kids. Huh...at least high schoolers have a little 'judgement' when confronted with cold hard facts.

    You completely didnt understand my post above, btw. It's not about how society treats our kids...it's about how our 'kids today' could make a marriage work at 13...basic numbers, and facts, and **reality**. It was about learning BEFORE making mistakes. It wasnt about society making them do anything or treating them in some way.
