Giving birth is worst then rape

Yeh, this is just ignorant.
Get raped, then tell me whether you think being born traumatized you more, okay?

I've been raped.

I've been raped.
I'm really sorry for you,
but I still stand by my statement, if someone who won't remember, for example high or incredibly drunk, is raped then that is a disgusting crime too,
it doesn't matter.
Also being born lets you experience all those horrible things, the chance that someone might get raped is a direct consequence of birth.
If someone is born, i can guarantee that they will experience some kind of pain all their life, but i can't guarantee the same for pleasure.

Rape is not a direct consequence of birth, rape is a consequence of persons that are one of the disgusting persons on this world.

rape is not, but the chance of being raped is.

Also it is a great example that you can't guarantee that no unexpected terrible things will happen to a child during their life.
 
I know the title is a bit clickbaity, but stay with me and i will explain what i mean
1, First lets consider some reason why rape is inmoral:
  • it is non consensual
  • it is painful
  • it is a terrible experience which might hunt the victim for the rest of their life
2, applying the same to giving birth:
it is entirely without the consent of the child (as it is nonexistent)
being born is the most stressful experience in the lifetime of a human (even if the "victim" forgets about it, i think it is still worth mentioning)
And at last my main point:
If someone raped suffers any physical or mental damage as the result of the rape, it is obviously the fault of the rappist, so applying the same to the parents any and all negative consequence of being alive is directly the result of their selfish act of reproducing.
Their might be an argument that what if someone life is good? I think asking if what if someone enjoyed the act of sex, while being rapped is irrelevant, and also not a question many would consider moral to entertain.

As conclusion, i don't think all parent are committing a serious crime, with no way to be forgiven. I think if the parents bring up their child, and then help them become independent, then it is a just "compensation". But if any parent ever abandon their child, and as such don't repent for their action, I find them more inmoral than rappist.

(just a footnote: i don't hate my parents, in fact i do love them, but i still think that not giving birth is better then doing so, and if i could i would had chose to never exist in the first place)
This is a perfect example of how broken you can become by being an Atheist.

Ok, so is your reply an example of how close-minded bigotry walks hand in hand with Christianity?

Or are you perhaps not representative of everyone in a group you say you belong to?

Ty for adressing my points, and enlightening me.

Also as you know nothing about me, this "twisted" logic might just be a resault of a mental illnes i have born with. Simply saying that you think my logic is broken, and it is coused by atheism simply just wont cut it. (just to clarify, i don't have any mental illnes, it is just an example oh how you can't draw concluions, by that little information)


If i brought up a conservativ christian who beat their wife to death, and say: This is a perfect example of how broken you can become following the bible and the word of God

Also the reason why i originaly posted that, was because i wasnt entirely sure about myself, and i was happy to debate it, maybe others can find a flaw in my logic that i missed

after thinking about it, i might have misunderstood your point, if by :" This is a perfect example of how broken you can become by being an Atheist. "
you mean an Atheist will be capable of entertaining less confortable ideas, like not having a guardian angel that will make everything good in the end.
In this case I totaly agree with you, but i don't see it as being "broken", but as a good thing.

I'd make it simpler. The statements in the OP have got fuck all to do with beliefs in divine entities. If Led Zeppelin wants to contend otherwise, he's going to need to bring a little more substance than what appears to be a bigoted assertion.
