If evolution were true how do you explain homosexuality? If we are just here to past on our genes, doesn't homosexuality seem like a defect? If you're a evolutionist it does.
You see what kind of problems the evolutionary mindset has on society? Blacks and Jews are not evolved enough(racism), gays are a defect. I believe we are all sinners homosexuality is a sin just like lying and stealing are sins, even though we may be inclined to sin doesn't mean youre born gay no more does is mean you're born a thief or a liar. Are you born cheating on your spouse? Nope.
I really want to know how the evolutionist rationalize the evolutionary religion with the fact that homosexuality exist and is rising, that's the opposite of evolution, According to natural selection. The process weeds out those who do not have strong enough genes or any non-productive behavior. If evolution is true why is there homosexuality?
I doubt very much that homosexuality is on the rise. A lot of gay men and women used to marry the opposite sex just to be able to further their careers and to appear to be just regular people. Nowadays they are more obvious about who they are therefore there seems to be more of them. In fact the percentage probably remains true to the past.
Evolution isn't just about perfection. Evolution is really about experimentation and we are all part of that. The creation of defects is part of the whole bag. Mind you in a world where overpopulation is the greatest threat to humankind maybe it isn't such a defect after all. Procreation is fine and good and I am all for it but too many people have taken it too far to where you have starvation in countries where there should not be starvation. Maybe being too productive can be the problem that will destroy whole communities if it hasn't already. Resources are shrinking but populations are increasing. Think about that!
It is evolutionary beneficial for this to stay in the gene pool. Sexual feelings help to further human stock. If we werent supposed to have these feelings then we would only have a little of the urge to have pleasure.
It is beneficial for this gene (sexuality) to stay in the gene pool. Whether pleasure is sought out through male on male, female on female, male on female or shear masturbation, is of no consequence. The sexuality gene or the need to have an orgasm is useful and used. It is kept within the genetic stock as it is beneficial and used.
If the human race didnt use it, they would lose it!
Hmmm. I wish I had an answer for you, but I don't. I'll keep checking back to see what someone else says. All I know is that according to the bible, nothing is new,just the generation. Homosexuality has been around since the beginning of time.
Yes, but if evolution were true there would be no homosexuality due to “millions of years” of natural selection. Homosexuality would certainly no where in the animal kingdom, but constantly we see gays and gay activist using animals to justify their behavior. Not knowing that the notion negates the evolutionary process. Thanks for commenting.
The only things rising around here are your historical attempts to get your homophobic opinion out there, and your total lack of medical knowledge! Homsexuality is spoken about more these days and less people are homophobic, that is why you hear about it.
I know the answer. Evolution is a lie, but for those you still cling to this myth of evolution I would like an answer. I don't hate anyone I know it's easy to label rather than engage, but that don't fly with me. Have a good night.
Evolution is a fact and homosexuality has nothing to do with it.
Apparently you have no sense of Nature’s hard rule of odds and percentages, and quite frankly neither does your “jesus”, because physics rule in that world.
When a product is shaped or manufactured, the odds are that a percentage of the total will be flawed or imperfect, and the higher the number of product manufactured the higher the percentage of defects, and the same rule applies to people.
The reason you see MORE homosexuals today than you saw yesteryear is because there are MORE people. It’s nobody’s fault, its simply the rule of physics and that’s the way things are.
All you'll do is make the liberals mad with this thread. First, there'll be alot of "You don't know." Then there'll be alot of, "Homophobe! Homophobe!" Then a whole lot of acusations and off-polnt points. It'll all come to a head when all is lost and they drop a "Shut-up Stupid" bomb. Is this what you want? Well it's ok me.
Well for you it does not matter. You are a christian which means that you are not allowed to judge anyone of anything that they do. That is Gods job, right? You are offending some of Gods children, which you should feel bad about. Please keep your hateful comments to yourself.
If you feel so inclinded, Pray to your god and ask him to answer the question of why Athiest think the way they do.
<--- thinking, thinking... Ok stop stretching so far to prove your point. It doesn't make any sense.
Natural selection is a part of evolution. Not all of it. And not all of the human population is homosexual, allowing the species to still exist and prosper. Does homosexuality discredit evolution? No. And if you think so, that's your problem.
Been there, done that, I know more about evolution than you can imagine. That’s why I know molecule to man evolution is impossible and a religion. The difference is I asked questions. Whenever you’re ready to question the establishment and stop being told what to think look me up.
I haven't been told what to think. I have taken courses and read on my own to determine what I believe. You say you don't "buy evolution". I completely understand your disbelief in "molecule to man evolution" as you call it. But do you deny evolution all together?
Were you really asking a question, seeking out scientific reasoning, when you started this forum? Or were you trying to prove a point and promote your hub on the same topic?
I have no problem with variations, genetic recombination, adaptations, transduction, mutations, transformation, vital enzyme exchange through plasmids, natural selection, conjugation within a kind, observational and a proven fact, and supports the bible claims (after its kind)but when evolutionists try to take leap of faith with “Give it enough time you turn anything to anything look at these bones” that where it stops being science and becomes a pseudoscientific religion. and you guys can't even tell me how it all began and where the information came from. I‘ll stick with God and His word.
volutionist seem to think variations, genetic recombination, adaptations, mutations conjugation within a kind + TIME god= apes to human, but that's simply impossible. "The amount of information in the 3 billion base pairs in the DNA in every human cell has been estimated to be equivalent to that in 1,000 books of encyclopedia size. If humans were 'only' 4% different this still amounts to 120 million base pairs, equivalent to approximately 12 million words, or 40 large books of information. This is surely an impossible barrier for mutations (random changes) to cross" Dr. Don Batten, Ph.D.
precisely! and whom is 'represented' by these councils.
the time line: end of a war, transition from the 'love-in' days, of what were defined by both religion & medicine as evil days.
yet from that has stemmed the generation of the rainbow wearers. still, psycho's believe it is a mental disorder. The pressure to remove that stigma was because of the 'fundamental reality faced by the intellectual community that would infringe upon the religious and social classification of a group of individuals. That also might violate their civil or constitutional rights and the rights or beliefs of others.'
Oh NARTH, great resource! Please sense the sarcasm. The same group who just had their annual conference in my town. And believes they can provide therapy to young adults to convert them into being heterosexual.
Forced to go to these "therapy sessions"? If a parent wants their child to go, they can threaten them if they do not. And my tv? My tv has the president on it right now. He isn't telling me to be a lesbian.
I know what an enzyme is. I know what a plasmid is. But why you are bringing up vital enzyme exchange through plasmids in a discussion about evolution and homosexuality is beyond me. It only proves two things. 1. You can copy and paste 2. You have no idea what you're talking about
You still believe that they developed that the ability through evolutionary steps but what your professors won't tell you is they are losing information through the vital enzyme exchanges to develop a beneficial mutation, but they aren’t gaining any new information to do so. We are losing information, since we are not gaining that means no evolution is occurring. It's more complicated, but those are the basics principals.
No not in the sense you are made to believe, molecule to man evolution is a myth. Variations within the kind is a fact. But variation and mutuations have limits, and we are not getting any new information.
Vital enzyme exchanges? Enzymes are catalysts, right? So where does an exchange come in to place? I have no idea what you're trying to say. Yes, there are many beneficial mutations (somatic and germline), and mutations occur for various reasons, whether spontaneous or induced (most are induced). And can more information be gained based on mutations? Yes! Definitely. When mutations are studied genes can be isolated, and when genes can be isolated, cures can be found.
What information are we losing? Humans are losing information? Like skills, genes, etc? Is that what you mean?
Show me where we are gaining something new! Isolation is a form of recombination of already present material. Remember the fruit fly experiment? Find cures has nothing to do with gaining new information were simply unplugged lights instead of cureing the disease. Do you get a your first headache from lack of aspirin? No. Treating symptom is not the cure. Are you college or grad school? Because you’re being brainwashed, maam.
Not really if you know God's Word. We are in a fallen state. We were created of God image "perfect," but sin=death so we are getting sicker, weaker, dumber. Until Jesus returns and restores all things. Do we get younger or older with time? Older! Everything breaks down and winds down with time it doesn't improve no matter what you do.
Labels? What labels? I hate labels, so no, they don't make me feel smarter. In my opinion, you don't have a complete understanding of what you're talking about. Here is one article with some information, it is fairly recent: http://discovermagazine.com/2009/mar/09 … ey-used-to And it isn't a website dedicated to proving creationism. Sorry.
Why do you keep giving me that website?? Is that all you believe in? Is that your only source of information? Realize that the purpose of that site is to prove creation and discredit evolution. Don't you think it may be a little bit biased? Just a guess.
Look, truth (fitting name)...I concede all right. You are the man. You are right and we are wrong. Maybe this is one of the lessons you should teach in your future lectures. "How to stump Cole and crew."
It doesn't look like she was mad, truthhurts. Actually, her text appears calm and fluid. And from what I see, you're not making much sense from any perspective (besides your own). Please enlighten us with your vast knowledge and break down exactly what it was you were talking about. I'm actually interested here...
I guess I assumed we all spoke common english. You obviously like to create your own defintions of words by breaking them up into smaller parts and creating meanings that are totally irrevelant. Universe does not mean one verse, sorry to spoil the party champ.
One of the hopeful messages from cancer research is that most of the cases of cancer are linked to environmental causes and, in principle, can be prevented. Together, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences have recently published a new booklet titled "Cancer and the Environment," which focuses on the agents in the environment that cause cancer and what we can do to lower our cancer risk. Environmental causes include both lifestyle factors such as smoking and diet, as well as exposure to agents in the air and water. http://www.cancer.gov/newscenter/benchm … sue3/page1
Look at the grocery stores...look at the ingredients. People are consuming crazy amounts of unnatural sugars and fats...not to mention all the empty calories. On top of this, many people (including children) are inactive and glued to their televisions or the internet (such as us!). Furthermore, let’s look at pharmaceuticals. The drug intake in the all countries is ridiculous. We don't know what it is that we are consuming or combining together, and that's just prescription drugs! That's why certain diseases are on the rise! It has nothing to do with natural cellular degeneration or how did you put it...losing information.
And I don't mean for my sources to be biased. That is your opinion. The fact is that they are reputable sources, used by universities, professors, hospitals, researchers, etc. If alllll of those people are wrong, then I sincerely apologize.
“That's your opinion,” or did you miss that self defeating statement too. So it’s majority rule over facts. Well 60% of America believe evolution is a lie so does that make it true?
Encyclopedia Britannica documents that in 1845, a young doctor in Vienna named Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was horrified at the terrible death rate of women who gave birth in hospitals. As many as 30 percent died after giving birth. Semmelweis noted that doctors would examine the bodies of patients who died, then, without washing their hands, go straight to the next ward and examine expectant mothers. This was their normal practice, because the presence of microscopic diseases was unknown. Semmelweis insisted that doctors wash their hands before examinations, and the death rate immediately dropped to 2 percent. Look at the specific instructions God gave His people for when they encounter disease: “And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean” (Leviticus 15:13). Until recent years, doctors washed their hands in a bowl of water, leaving invisible germs on their hands. However, the Bible says specifically to wash hands under “running water.”
There’s a good new documentary out now called "Darwin’s Dilemma. If you want check it out. It’s late.

Which is true - Creationism or Evolution? Can both be right?It seems there are still arguments about whether the world was 'created' or whether it 'evolved.' What do you believe? Can you also accept the alternative view?
Change - mutations, adaption, survival of the fittest, variations based on the environment, and perhaps even some speciation, as in a new "species" of flies - are undisputed facts that do NOT contradict the Word of God and do NOT reveal evolution theory's premise, but rather reveal an...

Some one just accused me of making a personal attack on them because I said they are ignorant of certain facts. Any one who has interacted with me here will know I try not to make personal attacks, other than to make fun of people, and these threads are littered with snipped personal attacks on me...
