Re: Homosexuality is a Choice(Not!)

Birth order shows one of the strongest correlators for predicting homosexuality. Technically, the foetus has already formed, so there is no genetic change, and the theory goes that an immune response in the mother (still an environmental change) from previous male children will prime her defences a...

Re: ...and thanks for the badge!!

Non-sequitur, syllabear. Yes, the Bible was written by humans. However, Christians don't think that, do they? They, however inexplicably, fully believe it to be the literal word of their God. Don't you? It is this belief in its contents, and the claim of its authority, that influences their actions...

Re: Homosexuality is a Choice(Not!)

Fact is, there are a lot of straight males who are into gardening, antiquing, interior design, dance music and broadway musicals. And there are a lot of gay men who like beer, sports, hard rock, are slobs, and...whatever other stereotypical "regular guy" stuff. Well not gay, but 'prissy' I guess wo...

Re: ...and thanks for the badge!!

I'm sorry to butt in once again to this topic, but I can't help but noticing a double standard on the side of Phytotron/sine.wav. Please bear with me while I explain: On the one hand you claim that the Bible is the word of man (and not God). Yet on the other, you blame the book itself (and religion/...

Re: E-House

Any house thats not either a) in a block of flats (for space economy) or b) buried at least partially under the ground (for thermostatic economy) cannot be considered as a house for the future. Preferrably, I'd like to see housing that tunneled far under the ground (inverted appartment complexes): y...

Re: Homosexuality is a Choice(Not!)

but these things can change and mutate over time. You cannot "mutate" from a heterosexual to a homosexual (or vice-versa). Individual cells can mutate (cancer) but a personality, or any generalised condition of a person cannot change through this process (since mutation occurs on a cellular level, ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biology_and_sexual_orientation While its possible environmental factors have something to do with it (note for example, this may include the "birth order" hypothesis, so while environmental, it is not a choice), at the end of the day we don't know for sure, and the evide...

Re: ...and thanks for the badge!!

I know God prefers you to eat fish, but this topic is beginning to smell from all the red herring. Sylla would be better off trying to help Word in the impossible task of justifing his creator's horrible commandments rather than trying to argue about free will, something he obviously hasn't spent m...

Yes it does, try and think about it from a wider perspective
