Yes so let's discriminate because they're different. Just like when Africans used to be called a different species like people such as yourself.

He's ascribing intent to something that cannot have any. It's just a system. There is no purpose to what evolution produces. It just IS.
So homosexuality doesn't encourage reproduction. So what? Neither does an infinite number of other activities humans enjoy.
Besides, homosexuality still provides social benefits for the individuals, which in turn can benefit the species as a whole in some way.

But at basic levels of organisms, they reproduce asexually. So what does that tell us? Actually, I don't know, but it doesn't sound hetero to me.

IMPOTENCE IS THE DEVIL!
And...evidence for your claims of disease (you know, save AIDS, which is pretty much a case affecting homosexuals disproportionately limited to our country), shorter lifespan (that doesn't have to do with, you know, the increased suicide rates brought on by people like yourself), and for the idea that homosexuality is just a method of dominance in all animals.
The facts don't seem to support you all too well.

This is why even in animals especially primates homosexual coupling is used primary to induce submission of weaker males.
Despite popular assumption, this is almost never the case, which I think is interesting! When this assumption was tested, studies showed the lower ranking animal tops, or the animals trade-off evenly. IMO this indicates homosexuality developed so animals would get along with each other. It seems to promote equality, fairness and social bonds rather than dominance.

Christianity is simply wrong.

Well done for assuming gene have an intention! (I blame Dawkins)They don't. What works stays, though only roughly. Homosexuality is beneficial to society in terms of reproduction, though not the individual (peer or group selection). And in any case, we don't base our morality on what we think strands of protien want, normally. Otherwise men fighting to severe injury or death over women/food/houses and killing stepchildren would be fine.

Ah, good ol' FreeRepublic.com .
Where would we be without your ultra-conservative punditry?
Remember, kids, a "free republic" is one in which you're free to toe the party line of the religious right.

Oh dear, just wait until someone comes up with a viable method of genetic recombination, that doesn't involve sex...?
Then metaphorically "all hell will break loose"...

Same applies to religion, by the way.

"At a very basic level an organism has one mission and that is to survive and reproduce."
only as a group. next...

Good point, because there are not enough babies around.
6/30/2009 7:50:13 PM
and the idea that anything a human does with his sex life in this society today has any real bearing on survival is pretty stupid and naive of you.
that's the wonder and freedom of living in a privileged and advanced world like ours. so many of us no longer need make contribution to the species, we are free from what we have to do, so now we can do what we want to do.

wrong. it's freakin amazing.

Fundementalism is simply wrong. One does not need to read Dawkins or any other scientist to know that. At a very basic level an organism has one mission and that is to survive and be intelligent. Fundementalism flies in the face of this basic reality. Also the very method of thinking is dangerous to the organism and exposes the organism to greater incidence of being laughed at and shorter lifespan. This is why even in animals especially primates fundemental thinking is used primary to induce hysterics of smarter organisms. Acceptance of fundementalism is naive and just not very smart.

However, they same nature you advocate, make people sterile, make women and most men survive well after their reproductive years are over, and exposes the organism to the same infections with heterosexual sex. Second, homosexuality is not used that way in the animal world. In fact, it´s performed exclusively by alpha males over alpha males. Submission of the weaker males implies KILLING THEM. Please, do some research.

Follow your advice and fuck off right away.

In nature, the submission of the weaker males means DEATH. They don´t have prisons, you know.
