unbelievable numbers

Ok so through several links beginning at the Ramblin Pastor Man, I found the results of an askmen.com poll that are just unbelievable. I would be interested to see how these numbers would look in a survey with better methodology than self-selection.

here are some of the numbers from this admittedly unscientific sample:

Should a couple live together before marriage?
>> 60% say, “Yes, it is a good test to put the relationship through before marriage.”
>> 21% say, “Yes, living together is pretty casual.”
>> 10% say, “No, a man should enjoy his freedom while he can.”
>> 9% say, “No, it is not morally acceptable.”

If there was no chance your partner would find out, would you cheat on her?
>> 37% say, “No, I might be tempted, but I love and respect her too much.”
>> 32% say, “No, I might be tempted, but cheating violates my morals.”
>> 15% say, “Yes, but I would feel guilty nonetheless.”
>> 13% say, “Yes, she can’t be hurt if she doesn’t know about it.”
>> 3% say, “Yes, I already cheated on her.”

91% of these men see no moral problem with living together before marriage. 31% have already or would cheat on their partner. Reckon if there is any connection between these two results?

Here is the page where askmen.com keeps their survey results.

Again, notice that 59% would dump their girlfriend if she became fat and 86% are unsatisfied with their sex lives. Any connection? wow.

reminds me of something, and I’m not sure why, but here tis

Galadriel: “For within these rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race.”

Galadriel: “But they were all of them deceived, for another ring was made.”

Galadriel: “In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret a master ring, to control all others.”

and this

12 “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be enslaved by anything. 13 “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
