Sex & God: Of course I have this book

So I recently got a copy of this book:

The book is Sex & God by Darrel Ray. He was kind enough to send me a copy (you rule!)

Darrel Ray did a study where he surveyed 10,000 secularists and their views on sex, so I bet some of this book will be partially based on that.

I will be reading and reviewing this over the next few weeks, because there’s nothing I love to talk about more than these two topics.

You can get your own copy of Sex & God on Amazon, btw.

Edit: Bracin’ Mah anus.*

    You know, you’re just “asking for it” displaying an image of yourself holding a book.

    Dr. Ray’s method of tabulaiting and correltating answers from a self selected group of partcipates is the pinnacle of Scientific Reasearch.

    Truly impressive arrangement of his statistics.

      So… How else is he supposed to study the sex lives of seculars/atheists without it being a self-selected group? He mentions this as a limitation of his study.

        I suppose the only other option would be to do a study where the participants were not self-selected for their secularism, but rather, taken from a broader pool? So you ask a few questions at the beginning about religious identification and belief, and then move into the sex questions.

      So, crypto-secularists are underrepresented? Non-secular respondents lied about being secular to skew the results? Their reported views are self-reported as well.

      Secularists who are not active in the community or blogosphere may be underrepresented. But then the study examines exactly what it says it examines, and seems valid insofar as its reported design, and does not seem to extend conclusions beyond the noted limits.

      Which is how any study is done. Some are more limited than others. All these things are addressed in the literature: methods, participants, data collection, sample population, results, analysis, etc.

    Not afraid to say this: I kept re-reading “Bracin’ Mah anus”, thinking it was some sort of Latin or Celtic code you slipped in there at the end.

    I felt saddumb when I finally figured it out. :-(
