Sorry for being so blunt, but what you ask is absolutely absurd. "Just try it" bull shit stupid Christians try to pull all the time. Look at it this way. Say I have a drug that will completely take away your ability and desire to have sex. So just try it, it doesn't matter if you desire sex now because you won't desire it after you take this pill. Why would I trick myself into believing complete non-since? That would be the most stupid thing a person could do.
