    No, it isn't.

    Yes, it is.

    Was I talking about that?

    I was saying, when pedos will know the death is a certainty, they will think very hard before choosing their hobby.

    This is just more childish debate. Obviously, unconditional love isn't limited only to one's own offspring. It can be extended, and is extended, by a great number of people towards all sorts of others. Your statements of absolute on the subject are incorrect. Listen, if you can back up your argument or construct a rational argument instead of "yes it is", even though it's already been established that your absolute statement isn't absolutely correct, then maybe we can continue this. Until then, childish arguments and appeal to emotion are not intellectually sound and honest enough to engage with.

    Such a device can be used for more than just the pedophile/kidnapping that has been discussed for the most part in this thread.
    Wow, you are REALLY paranoid. You're probably the kind of parent who randomly searches his kid's room and goes through all of his personal possessions "just in case" he/she's doing something bad, aren't you.

    Why are you so worried about your kids doing things like that? If your kids are the type who would do these kind of things, then you must've not done a very good job raising them.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    it is "a deviation" from the norm... it is not simply "deviation".

    She made a perfect analogy regarding "DETERRENCE".

    Yes it is

    And

    No it isn't

    It was condescending

    And

    One can unconditionally love many things that are not their biological children.

    Really? Really? Jesus Christ. Who is going to do this death march of yours? And why would only pedos think very hard before choosing their hobby? Why not murders? Why not regular rapists? Why not other criminals? You're making very limited arguments with no substance, logic, or data to back your claims. If it were as you said, criminals would be affected by the death penalty at large. If a murderer knew that death is a certainty, they would think very hard before choosing their hobby. But they aren't. Many studies have shown that the death penalty has at best a very limited deterrent effect, if one at all. Thus, your supposition is incorrect.

    ... Are you saying that his scenarios ARE NOT possible? Perhaps he is simply more in tune with what actually happens, for I knew and know lots of underage girls that sleep with their boyfriends that are over 18... hell even 25 years old and I knew a couple of guys that used to steal a car and then drive them into walls befor they lit them on fire. You sound like the type of person that lives in a bubble.

    yep... and argument against deterrence in general, not just pedophiles. *nods up and down*

    Does this help Elena? It was now posted twice, so the repitition might help.
