    Months of formal courting in the company of your lady love's family, clandestine love letters, and an offer of marriage with the expectation of a dowry?

    Let's throw some data into the discussion:

    First up is data on the racial preferences expressed by white men and women.



    Next up we take a look at how people of all races act based on the millions of data points in the OK Cupid database. This chart shows willingness to reply to
    a person of another race:



    For instance, an Asian female will reply to 22% of contacts made by an Asian male, 17% of contacts made by a black male and 29% of contacts made by a white male.

    The the stars and planets align and women actually reach out to men, this is what we see in the form of responses from the men:



    When we increase the seriousness of the relationship and look only upon marriage, this is what we see:



    When we look at risk of divorce, then we see the well-known high divorce rate for interracial marriages. Of note is the growth of unstable interracial marriages amongst the young. The older generations actually had marriages which were more stable than same-race couples, likely due to the social stigma and the couple therefore being very certain that they wanted to have a life together. Younger couples seem to have bought into the hype of "enlightenment" associated with interracial marriages and so these marriages are falling apart more frequently than same-race marriages and this divorce disparity is increasing as we look at more recent cohorts:



    If we look into the nuts and bolts of the failed marriages, we see that when white women are involved, the risk of divorce skyrockets compared to when it is a white man in the marriage:

    According to the adjusted models predicting divorce as of their 10th year of marriage, interracial marriages that are most vulnerable involve White females and non-White males (with the exception of White females/Hispanic White males) relative to White/White couples. Conversely, White men/non-White women couples show either very little or no differences in divorce rates; or, as in the case of White men and Black women, are substantially less likely than White/White couples to divorce by their 10th year.

    You can't read their theology and figure out what they're supposed to believe? Certainly, you can't know what is really going on in their heads, but it's a safe assumption that they buy into it, just like you can't know for certain that members of the KKK are racist but it's a safe bet.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Very nice info. That last indented paragraph doesn't surprise me one bit.

    There you go again with your Liberal Totalitarian impulses again. There were 121 responses in this thread and they all focused on touchy-feely statements. Mine was the only one to include data. That upset you. So a 121:1 ratio still doesn't satisfy your totalitarian control freak impulses.

    Here's a thought for you, if you don't like reality being injected into a discussion, then continue to ignore reality instead of trying to compel people to act as you would prefer them to act. Simply don't comment on data.

    The Bible is full of all sorts of contradictory and confusing things that many Christians do not embrace as their theology. Quite often they describe it as history rather than the actual teaching of god.

    It is hilarious that you claim to bring data to the discussion while referring to me as a "Liberal Totalitarian." Your only (very subjective and absolutely not data-based) justification for that label is that I disagreed with you.

    Your data was as completely irrelevant as mine was. Data implying what sorts of mate the average person chooses for themselves has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with whether or not interracial couples are acceptable.
