Please explain where you've seen it disproven. It may not be 'proven' per se in humans(but theres a heck of a lot of evidence for it) but it's been basically shown in bed bugs. We could not figure out why DDT no longer works on bedbugs, but the best guess is that we made them that way through 'forced' evolution.

There was a story not too long ago about how they found a really old tooth in Israel and that shifts the whole 'Africa' thing.

Evolution has never been disproven, but it has never been proven. It's impossible to prove something you can't see does or doesn't exist. We've never seen an animal evolve and we have never seen God. Both rely on faith.

Evolution relies on faith? I thought it relied on 'logic' and 'reasoning'.

Wait, so...as long as you have your religion, you don't need food, clothing, or shelter? Out of curiosity, how are you typing this without using technology, which you "don't need?"

how do you think people lived life without technology? yeah, they still survived. i'm not saying we should all be amish, i'm saying that to people who are religious and really love God, then He should come before any other worldly thing.

Food most definitely goes above God. If you could give up either one of those things for the rest of your life, 99% of sane people would choose to give up God.

That's not what I mean at all. Yes we all NEED food and other important stuff, but if you were stuck in a desert and there was no food, I would turn to God for help because He is always there for me.

I don't want to start a religious debate, I'm just saying food doesn't go above God.

What? Homosexuality is legalised... homosexual marriage is the issue. Lesbians have the lowest STD rate, and straight people have STD's too... ** is more likely to spread the HIV virus, but again straight people can have too. Also gay men are less likely to wear condoms because they can't get pregnant, and there isn't as much education for safe between men, as between men and women. Being gay doesn't mean you'll get an STD you just have to be smart and safe about having **, the same as if you were straight.

The whole ex-gay thing is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. You think ex-gays are all liars? If they have no desire for the same **** anymore, then who are you to tell them they 'secretly' still do?

Okay, I understand, even though being gay isn't on the same level as being a liar.
Anywho, if your friend were to fall in love, would you want her to get married?
If liars can marry, why can't gay people? Especially because lying is actually morally wrong.

That was a real dignified rant right there, but you just told me that you can't think of being gay as right. You can't see a gay person as a right person. You see homosexuality as a flaw, a flaw that should be fixed (i.e. your pedophile comment, as if you should "cure" a gay person like you would a child molester.)

That is not equality.

OK. Let's say I have a friend who is a constant liar and lies to her parents about everything. She's still my friend, she's just as human as anyone else, but what she does is wrong. I don't support her actions but I still love her. We are EQUAL. Is there something you do not understand?

They are both "curable" in the same way???? Which is by making them undergo hormone treatment to make them sterile and lose their ** drive or physically remove their ** organs to stop them releasing hormones? Well yeah, straight people are "curable" the same way.
Are the "handy little facts" dependent on social conditioning thinking that homosexuality is wrong? Facts like how 30% of teenage suicide is committed by gays and lesbians? And how one in every 3 transgender people commit suicide? And studies have been done that most of them grew up in familys and communitys that taught and showed hatred and rejection towards homosexuals.

Just because they commit suicide, doesn't mean we should go straight to conclusions by legalizing it. Homosexuals have more chances of getting STD's.

What do you think people did before there was plumbing?
Paedophilia can't even compare, paedophiles are hurting children who can not consent. Homosexual's attraction doesn't hurt anyone. Paedophiles can't just change even if they don't act on their urges they are always going to be attracted to children. Which is why they use chemical (and if the paedophile connects physical) sterilisation because that changes the hormones which change the **** drive etc...
Why would you want to do that to people who aren't hurting anybody?
Ok, so you know how every foetus is physiologically a female until about 6 weeks right? The male foetus receives a massive dose of male hormones called androgens which first form the testes, and then a second does to alter the brain from a female format to a male format. This is determined by the Y chromosome, it's just the way your brain and body work (although external factors can interfere with the relese of hormones in the

As I said earlier, 'I'm not comparing them in a way in which I think they're alike, but in a way to show that if both are caused by brain abnormalities, then they are both curable in the same way.'

You want me to really pull out all these handy little facts about how homosexuality affects the homosexual and others?

this is what religion does to some people, i swear. of course there are good points, but you are a human being and you can't even recognize other human beings as equal to yourself. that is disgusting.

You are misinterpreting everything anyone who disagrees with you says. Stop acting like you're smart and you know it all, because you're still a kid (so am I, but I don't think I'm right all the time). I'm not saying kids are stupid, I'm saying you don't understand a lot of things in this world.
This whole time I've been trying to tell you I DON'T!!!!!!! think less of a person because they are gay. They're just as human as anyone else, I just don't agree with their actions. I don't hate them, say bad things to them, or do anything that causes depression towards them.
So don't go around telling people I believe that equality's for dumbfucks, because I believe in every bit of equality.
What's disgusting is your attitude to anyone you disagree with. Grow up, and realize you're not the only one who has an opinion on here and stop calling anyone who disagrees with you a bigoted freak.

Just because animals are like that means it's NATURAL.
And my guess is the only reason it hasn't been confirmed by the scientific community is because it's horribly difficult to study these kinds of things. We're dealing with human beings, so a lot of tests and experiments are hard to follow through with. Especially when it's being rooted down by people like you.

And why do you go around saying being gay is a choice then? Do animals choose to be gay?

Animals have nothing to do with the human species. Basically what you're saying is 'Animals can do this, why can't I?' Yeah? Well, animals can live in the jungle and take a crap anywhere they like, why can't I? It's natural?

People like me, huh? If you actually weren't so hard headed you might even realize why we think this way. I tried to convince myself being gay is alright, but I just can't.

Why can't straight people just be happy unmarried and living together? Why does anyone have to get married at all? First of all, to be told they can't get married means they have less rights. I know if I was told, "Mayrose, you are not allowed to get married because (insert ridiculous reason like "The Bible says so" here)," I would be **** pissed. It's completely unfair.

Marriage shows you will always be faithful to each other (or that's what it's supposed to represent) and love each other, and it's something everyone should be able to experience. Also, "As a group, married people suffer less absences from work, less illness, and live several years longer. They seem to suffer less from depression and loneliness and are less prone to commit suicide."

It's also pretty sad that only 60% of adoption agencies in America accept applications form homosexuals.

There actually has been a study that shows that a homosexual's lifespan can be decreased by up to 15 years.

Besides, that only says stuff about heterosexual married couples. If you look at statistics for only homosexual married couples, it would be quite different.

And no, it's not sad. I'd rather have a mom and a dad rather than 2 moms or 2 dads. It's unfair for the child.
