I can't believe you forgot pizza. For shame.
I think it would be kinda cool to have your soul (personality, brain, morals, etc.) reincarnated, while your consciousness went on to an afterlife, so you could see - from a 3rd person perspective - what you would be like under different circumstances. That would be really fascinating.
I've got to agree with OP on this one. The US wasn't established on Christianity, but rather religious freedom. And, to me, yes, that can also mean the freedom to not have any religion at all. I think some people just jump too quickly at "BLRGH! Atheists want to destroy religion and have everything their way! BLRGH!" argument (not necessarily here, but in general). There are plenty of religions that believe in many gods or even no gods at all. Honestly, as someone who doesn't even believe in a higher power, this whole topic doesn't really bother me. I just think that the whole "under God" and "in God we trust" thing can get kinda annoying. It's hypocritical. We don't have an official religion, but we teach all of our children to pledge allegiance to God every morning in school. Don't get me wrong, if nothing were to change, I would hardly even notice, but that's because it's been ingrained in all of us by this point. I care about this, and think someone should step up and change it, but I'm pretty sure no one would be up in arms if that never happened. The scary hypothetical is the outrage that would follow if God was taken out. But, alas, that's another topic for another day.
Alright. I see where you're coming from now, but I don't think people really think like that. At least not anymore. Considering we have over 7 billion people on the planet, and we're reproducing much faster than we ever were before, people feel very secure about existence. Some just don't like abnormalities. Being gay is different and people find it weird or gross. Most people have grown up knowing men and women love each other and then they find out that's not always the case and they get confused. Gays are screwing up the innate social order they have believed in for as long as they have lived and they just don't always want to accept it. Luckily, that's not so much the case anymore, but it's obviously still an issue, hence the post and what not.
Well, yeah. Everything you're saying is pretty true, but you're arguing a point that hasn't been made. lol. The post is purely about the social aspect. But to contribute to the conversation anyway: You don't have to have sex to have a baby. Plenty of women can impregnate themselves to avoid anyone doing something they don't want to do. Also, the 9:1 ratio is purely hypothetical. Homosexuality, like you said, is a genetic anomaly and could never occur so much it overcomes the norm, especially since gays aren't exactly popping out babies like it's nobody's business. (Technically, there may be some genetic link to it, but I think you know what I mean)
My school is the Garnet Gulls, as in red seagulls. The seagulls aren't red though, so it's kinda confusing. I mean, a gull is a pretty bad mascot, but I like it. We're a beach town, so it's fitting.
BOLBI FOR PRESIDENT!
It's a spartan's face and helmet. The arc from the club is the feathers of the helmet and the golfer is the face. His elbow is the nose and the gap between his arm and his body is the eye.
I don't know if the quality has gone down. There may be a lot of shows that aren't particularly funny or entertaining, but many shows have movie-quality effects and budgets.
I've been dying to make those converse wings.
I'm sorry, Gavin. I promise that from now on I will only post about the most important and life-altering topics and never let another trivial problem plague the depths of my potentially earth-saving noggin. Just for you.
Huh. I guess you are what you eat.
Unfortunately, it's not and I'm surprised too, Stick. Memebase should have been all over this for at least a month.
But when the human race began, didn't we hunt animals with hand-carved tools, skinning them and building fire to keep warm? I think humans have always had a slight upper hand when it came to intelligence and competing with nature and the division between us and animals is just growing larger as we expand our aspect of life and their's seems pretty consistent. Also, babies are incredibly smart and learn at amazing speeds. It's less about adults "training" newborns and more about newborns learning from adults. They just mimic what they see until they're capable of being taught through language.
