    Could the kind people of the general forum assist in resolving an argument occurring in the spirituality forum.

    could you put this list in order 1-4 of the biggest factors that contribute to why people are generally not paedophiles. more suggestions welcome if you think they should be on the list. are there any that shouldnt be on the list?

    1 - society frowns on it.
    2 - its not moral.
    3- the physiology makes it impractical.
    4- human adults biologically do not find children sexually attractive.

    Do you mean 'not practicing paedophiles?'

    5. Awareness that in our society it damages the child and desire not to do so.
    6. Fear of being caught and punished.

    This #5 might be considered by some to be a subcategory of #2, 'it's not moral.' But it depends. Is #2 an expression of theistic 'God forbids it,' or is it an expression of humanistic 'do no harm.'

    no, we are specifically talking about people who are not paedophiles and reasons why they are not paedophiles.

    I agree with 5 & 6. I also believe that if there was a belief that paedophilia was healthy and moral thing that people would not be biologically opposed to it.

    It's probably necessary to distinguish between a ~15 year old child and a ~7 year old child.

    It's probably also necessary to ask why an adult would not be sexually attracted to a child (point 4).

    It's probably also important to realise that sexual attraction is a tricky, gray subject and may be radically different once stranded on a desert island.

    For instance, you might not be as "straight" as you think you are now once you are stranded on a desert island with a Calvin Klein model.

    Oh, by the way, it's probably also wise to give a general definition of "paedophile".

    paedophilia is directed at prepubescent children.

    just to clarify we are talking about people who are not paedophiles and the main reasons they (the general public) are not paedophiles.

    obviously you have thought about abusing children.
