"No future triumph or metamorphosis can justify the pitiful blighting of a human being against his will." Peter Zapffe

The causes of oil spills is oil
I don’t think that’s a good analogy: it would be like saying the cause of rape is sexual violence or something like that. No, the analogy would be more like, the cause of oil spills is transporting oil all over the oceans in an unsafe manner.
Only if every instance of transporting oil all over the oceans in an unsafe manner causes at least one oil spill.
No… not every rapist rapes every day either.
Every rapist does rape at least once.
causes of rape:
-rapists – 0%
-the rapists’ past experiences – 0%
-the rapists’ DNA – 0%
-the primordial slime – 0%
-the big bang – 100%
i.e., free will is nonsense. the predilection to rape did not spring forth magically from between the rapists’ ears, but was the result of an incalculable chain of past events.
on the other hand, we can’t protect potential rape victims by locking up historical causal forces like we can rapists. so my point is moot. but not irrelevant.
The Big Bang is the most distal cause of rape. Rapists’ intentions are the proximate cause of rape.
