Why Don't They Know?

Why don't Jewish skeptics know that they have a sexual addiction?

Why don't Alzheimer's patients know that they have Alzheimer's?

You should turn your blog routine into a standup show.

It�s hilarious!

It is a mitzvah to ridicule idolatry.

Given how much you blame on sexual obsessions, one must wonder if you are engaged in just a wee bit of projection.

jewish philosopher said...

No, actually it's all the Jewish "skeptic" bloggers who call me insane and idiotic who are projecting their problems on me.

Do you think Lutherans speculate the same thing about those who leave their flock?

jewish philosopher said...

Ask them.

Larry Tanner said...

I ask because I wonder if your argument implies that sexual addiction underlies all rejection of all religious doctrine?

And by "rejection," we mean accepting an atheistic position, correct?

jewish philosopher said...

Sexual addiction is a harmful compulsion which is not specifically related to religion.

Larry Tanner said...

If I am a Jewish skeptic and not having a lot of sex, am I still an addict? Or is it simply the idea that I "could" have lots of sex that is part of my addiction?

jewish philosopher said...

What I wrote exactly is "I think therefore it is reasonable to suggest that the current wave of Orthodox Jews leaving Judaism is primarily motivated by a desire for greater sexual freedom – pornography, strip clubs, prostitution, casual sex, etc."

Sex addiction does not necessarily mean actual intercourse and there are some atheists who may be motivated by money or other things.
