Why did God make men visual creatures?

I know that Satan uses mens visual tendencies to cause lust- but every man thinks about sex/sexually with people other than their partner.

I feel angry that God allows men to be visually stimulated towards women other than his wife- and women are naturally monogamous and hurt by this. Why?

  • Men and women both look. Do all? No, not all the time, but everyone is likely to catch a glimpse of something, because it is unavoidable in society.

    If you pass this judgment on all men, and not most, as I'm holding you to your sweeping statement, then be prepared for judgment against you.

    Men are not, by themselves, visual creatures. Women can, statistically, view a greater color spectrum than men, and have better vision. What you are referencing is the product of socializing. Men are not inherently looking lustfully any more than they simply enjoy what they see, which is not a crime (yet) or a sin speaking biblically.

    Men are socially trained to adhere to the norms of said society. It doesn't matter what it is, or how messed up it may be, anything can be socially accepted.

    The norms you want may not be part of your area or circle of experience, which twists your perception of the human race. A white supremacist may hate people of color, or how America loves to cut a baby boy's genitals, yet holds protests against practicing the female version in other countries. You view all men as beholden to their lustful eyes, blame it on Satanic temptation, while simultaneously blaming men, yet thinking they're incapable of their own thought.

    People choose to follow their lusts, emotions, or take action in life. If people are indoctrinated to do so, normalizing any behavior is easily done.

  • Perhaps this characteristic is to better hunt and track prey. I'm referring to humanity in ancient times having to hunt for their food. So it doesn't necessarily have to be a negative thing.

Most Helpful Girls

  • Because whereas woman look to men for signs of physical strength, because biology says he'll make strong healthy babies and he'll protect the little on es, as well as herself, with mens view on women it's different.

    With men being visual, like the sway of a womans hips, to her breasts a d butt, it tells men on a biological level, that she is most likley to be able to carry and deliver his offspring.

    Bascually, it revolves around making babies

  • Evolutionary trait to drive procreation. Some men will think that, some won't. Doesn't mean they won't cheat. Women are not all monogamous by nature.

  • 'Every man thinks about having sex with someone other than his partner.' Is that your experience or is that what you have been told?

    • Both. Every guy on this forum and every psychology class I've took has all told me that men are programmed to spread there seed and that when they look upon an attractive women a dopamine chemical in there brain realeases and they, more often then not, fantasize about them (even if only for a few seconds.)

    • So you think every man wants to be unfaithful?

    • Im not saying every man wants to take action to be unfaithful- but view women sexually to a certian extent. Even if theyre in love and committed.

  • How do you know that about Satan? Texted him on Facebook?

  • Eyes are pretty important for survival… An eyeless version might have been tried by random mutations, but you know that guy died quick.

  • So maybe the ideal man is a blind one? What a revelation!

  • Because if we didn’t have the choice it wouldn’t be free will

    • Free will is an illusion anyway

    • @Archerer No it’s not, we can do as we please but must face consequences if caught

    • That is the illusion... You think you are making the choices but you aren't. It feels that way so we are happy, but we aren't actually making the choices. Just study your own thoughts carefully and you'll see you have no choice in what comes next. They simply arise in you.

  • Because it is just evolution, and there is no God. That is the answer, sorry if you can't accept it :( but maybe if you realize to truth you could stop being angry and start adapting.

  • because god isn't real. we are the product of evolution

    • How do you explain the unexplainable? Example- God spoke in almost an audible voice telling my my father died before I was told by anyone, I also levitated in my sleep once and had a hand pull my arm away from a dog that was about to attack me.. how could you not acknowledge a spirtual being with experiences like this?

    • sigh...

    • Whats the point of being on a religious topic if all you want to do is try to shove your theories in peoples faces and prove them wrong and to judge for the fact that they have spirtitual questions or beliefs? I dont get it.

  • Then why do women cheat, too

  • Why is your IQ so low?

  • Do you have a great body the guy wants to tell you have a great body and individually break down the assets

  • So Trump can get the uneducated, old, white, perverted, and racist men to support him.

  • There is no such thing as “god”...

    but men being visually stimulated allow us to pick the best genes to pass on.

  • There is no God, thats why there are all these things that make no sense when you try to explain things in religious terms.

    As soon as you remove God from this puzzle the problem goes away.
