Science Challenges Religion On Woman’s Sinful, Sensual Nature AOC Sexual Politics

Last week, we touched this same subject — with different researchers — in Science Redefines Innate Human Behavior. There’s no doubt that brain science and endocrinology are helping us understand what it is to be human, with far-reaching implications.
If human beings aren’t fundamentally ‘bad’ but ‘good’ instead — or at the least, significant numbers of us are biologically ‘good’ — humanist and secularist values ascend in importance.
Sensual awareness is a key part of humanism, which requires us to be open to receive information and experience through our senses. Think of it as perception and awareness of our surroundings by listening, smelling, seeing, tasting and feeling.
