Nice blog post, well researched. I had none of this information when I was deciding whether to have our son circumcised 15 years ago. All I knew was that something didn't seem right.
If foreskins were so detrimental, how could we have survived as a species for so long. Evolution obviously favored the retention of the foreskin, otherwise it would have disappeared.
Ultimately, my decision was not based on science but the Bible and the sanctity of one's body. St. Paul said that circumcision meant nothing, it was the love and faith in your heart that mattered. Finally, I've known physical pain. I figured if my son really wanted or needed to be circumcised when he got older he could make the decision and he would survive the pain. I've had worse things done there and survived.
