Can I subtly insult anyone else for no reason?
Before I read the debate you two are having, I wish to inquire: is this debate you two are having one that is worth reading?
This is an idea I've never encountered from any scientist. I've heard certain ignorant lay people put forth ideas like this, but this is just a non-issue. Are there credible people who actually make statements like this? If there are, I have never heard of them.
(I like this "Philosophy = Walking, 'Science' = Running" analogy.)

I mean, a scientist (alpha male) has no need for pornography even though the option to resort to it is always there, whereas a philosopher (virgin) is unequipped for anything else.
