I am an atheist asking a question...

What evolutionary viability is there in a homosexual relationship?

Nobody seems to want to answer that one...

None at all that I can think of. Yes, we do find homosexuality practiced in nature (though it is usually more of a dominance behavior than a "lifestyle" behavior). However, as a Christian, I do not believe that everything found in the animal population means that it is okay for humans. Some animals eat their young while others engage in cannibalism. Neither one have any evolutionary viability nor should be taken as an example of proper morality.

I know that I'll get slammed for this, but while I believe that homesexual behavior is a sin and is considered by God to be one of the greater sins, I do not hate homosexuals. God loves homosexuals and so do I. God just hates the sin just as he hates all sin. Some homosexuals become Christians and find that the urge ends. Others have to struggle with it for the rest of their lives, just as some struggle with other sins for the rest of their lives. God gives us the power to triumph over sin, but humans -- and I certainly count myself human -- often give in to sin rather than triumph.

As for atheism, that is most definitely curable! If all I knew about Chritianity was what I read in all of these Young-Earth Creationism threads, I would probably be an atheist, too. It's embarassing to see the willful lack of knowledge. God loves you and Jesus Christ gave his life on the cross for you to be reconciled with God the Father.

I used to believe that there had to be some sort of leap of faith required -- a faith in something that might or might not be real. However, after growing in Christ and seeing miracle after miracle -- especially the changes that God can make in people's lives -- I realize that faith really involves trust more than anything else. Christians are not guaranteed a life free of persecution and temptations. Nor are we guaranteed to be wealthy and free of temptation. What we are promised is that, if we put our trust in Jesus Christ, he will be with us every step of the way and we will spend eternity with him.

If you want to talk more, please FreepMail me. Blessings upon you.
