    A team of researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have just published a study that claims to have mapped the human genome and discovered chromosomes related to sexual orientation in males. The study, "A genomewide scan of male sexual orientation," was led by homosexual researcher Dr. Dean Hamer and other pro-homosexual associates. Dr. A. Dean Byrd, a member of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) Scientific Advisory Committee reviewed the study and concluded: "The researchers' attempt to manipulate the data to come up with something meaningful was not realized. They find nothing and...

    Religious belief is determined by a person's genetic make-up rather than by any divine intervention, according to a study. After comparing more than 2000 DNA samples, the American geneticist who in the early 1990s claimed to have discovered the "gay gene" has concluded that a person's capacity to believe in God is linked to brain chemicals. His findings have been criticised by clerics, who challenge the existence of a "god gene" and say the research undermines a fundamental tenet of faith - that spiritual enlightenment is achieved through divine transformation rather than the brain's electrical impulses. Dr Dean Hamer, director...

    1.)Dr. Dean Hamer who failed to find a "gay gene": "Homosexuality is not purely genetic. Environmental factors play a role. There is not a single master gene that makes people gay. I don't think that we will ever be able to predict who will be gay." 2.) Dr. Dean Hamer was asked by Scientific American if homosexuality was rooted solely in biology. He replied: "Absolutely not. From twin studies we already know that half or more of the variability in sexual orientation is not inherited. Our studies try to pinpoint the genetic factors, not negate the psychosocial factors." ("New Evidence...
