Indeed, but with the political correctness of homosexuality, good science is often rejected for the mere fact that it's not politically correct. That's not what science is about.
Sorry - nothing on autism.
For what it's worth, LeVay continued looking for years after the above interview and recently gave up looking for a gene that causes homosexuality to become a homosexual activist.
"I can't help it. I was born this way. I have the VMAT2 gene! Do you think I have a choice in how I am made? You are the bigot! You are trampling my civil rights. I demand we order society to accomodate my inclinations!"
Thank God for reductio ad absurdum.
Yeah, but maybe his initial discovery will come into play later. Perhaps in some unrelated field. That's the way science works. And we're just on the surface of understanding how the brain works.
And for the record, I tend to accept people pretty much as they are -- though in my experience, if their sexuality is the major event in their lives, they tend to be fairly boring people.
You are welcome. The list of who to ping helps.
The abuse of real science continues.
LOL -- seems I've heard that definition before. I suspect you may be faith-delimited. You might be carrying "the gene". Did you have a high incidence of Dutch Reformed among your ancestors? ;^D
I'm sorry, I took those words out of the Bible (Romans, chapter 8). I didn't think up predestination. The Lord said it. I'm only about a 3 point Calvinist myself...I don't claim to understand everyting about how God does things. I agree, we all need Jesus to save us, however, I don't think Paul was making that stuff up. I was also trying to mock the whole idea that there is a gene responsible for all our 'bad' behaivor; do you remember when it came out that there was a gene that predisposed one to alcoholism? Or how about the one for stealing? Those have all been 'found' in the last 30 years by some supposed expert in DNA. If you didn't understand my comments as mocking, then I obvioulsy failed at the joke.
I find this highly amusing only in it's blatant bias: This guy found a "God Gene", a "Gay Gene" yet the Gene that explains why some people are lazy insipid slobs who soak off of the rest of us seems to elude him. OOPS! That's right! I forgot, that wouldn't be PC!
We can't experience exactly what an ex-homosexual (or as Scripter says, former homosexual) has experienced, but we can read what they write and listen to what they say.
There are thousands of FORMER homosexuals - it's not just that they are always "fighting" their attractions - many have left it all behind them.
Their stories and their testimonies are not only largely ignored by the media, they are repressed by the media. Why, one might ask?
Because their stories expose the lie that the "gay" agenda is based on - that being "gay" is carved in stone, genetic, they are "born that way". It is behavior, and psychological dysfunction, and it can be cured. Not in every case, but many. Similar to being an alcoholic - any alcoholic who wishes to get clean, can. Some don't want to. And there are thousands of former alcoholics who don't obsess about alcohol.
I'm one of them. You could waft any kind of alcoholic beverage in front of me (or the finest hash, which I used to smoke) and I wouldn't be tempted.
> I refuse to accept that religious belief, like love, is a condition of the organs.
Why? Emotions are easily controlled by drugs. Brain damage... or repair of brain damage... has been known to completely alter a persons personality, tastes and beliefs.
> Romans 1 certainly does debunk a LOT of arguments.
Ummm... does that include debunking those who think they're wise because they think that Romans 1 debunks their opponants?
