The “Common Sense” answer is to sell excess military equipment to allies that need them and buy body cams for every cop across the country.

What do you mean by “gay tendency expressed by the time of birth”?
I was referring to the gay tendency epi-genetic markers, that the study’s authors are describing, being in place prior to birth (triggered during pregnancy) vs. during childhood/adulthood.
Just because the child may not have reached the age to express their own sex drive and desires doesn’t mean that sexual experiences were not forced upon them prior to that time.

There are several hormones released during orgasm. One is known as the “bonding” hormone studied in women thought to drive them to want to stay connected to that partner. The hormones and their relative amounts vary by the type and intensity of orgasm. *******/clitoral orgasms in women and Prostate/Penile in men. Most hetero men rarely, if ever, experience the more intense prostate orgasm (i.e.receive anal sex) which is likely to drive them to want to “bond” with the one providing the experience both when it was a positive (for fun) and when it was negative (due to rape).

Yes epi-genetics is the mechanism that drives adaptation.
The epi-genetic events around the mother’s birth are set into the eggs she will produce her whole life. The epi-genetic events during the recent year(s), up to a day before, intercourse are set into the sperm (during creation) of the father. Stability in design from the mother, recent adaptations from the father.
What this study couldn’t show is which “gay” epi-genetic markers were obtained prior to birth due to the Mother’s choices during pregnancy, the Father’s choices before intercourse, or triggered by the individual’s choice(s) between birth and the time of the study.
This study only further enforces the view I came to about a year ago from previous epi-genetic studies:
Homosexuality is Not A choice. Homosexuality is the Result Of Choices – not all of which were made by the individual, some by their parents, some by the people the individual interacted with.
There is still Zero evidence that people are _conceived_ gay. Through epi-genetics some may have a gay tendency expressed by the time of birth while in others the expression is triggered through personal experiences (chosen and/or forced) during childhood/puberty or extended experiences (prison) as an adult.

When I was young and my grandmother was dying my mother explained that to Christians Souls are but the “drivers of a car that is the body.” When all worn out the body is left behind by the soul which then moves on.
Why is it that so many believers worry and fret about how and why some drivers want to customize their cars?

Really!? All one has to do to escape the Mounties is drive 55 mph??
I guess that is getting real close to 100 kmh and you don’t want to wear out the horse.

“Robots may be part of Christianity’s future”?
I think I’ve seen this depicted before… in the last few episodes of the latest “Battlestar Galactica” Reboot. Once the Robots find religion they start demanding rights… and it doesn’t go well from there.
Did you also note that the Cylons were monotheistic and the humans were pagans?
Actually you didn’t see this depicted in Battlestar Galactica since it took place hundreds of thousands of years in our past. According to that story, we are all descended from those robots through Mitochondrial Eve (Hera), who was the product of a union between human and cylon.
I would add pissed off to the phrase.

This guy works for some “anti-discrimination” blah blah place… I smell a plant – like Rosa Parks – a fully staged event designed to appeal to the public’s desire to “right a wrong” even when the “wrong” is a myth.
Why not the palestinians do it all the time. They fake injuries and show off "dead" people.

“While there is life, there is hope” – that the majority of such jihad seekers will similarly wake up from their stupor.
Killing the host cells (humans) containing the Evil (the bad ideas in Islam promoting jihad) does nothing to _Kill the Evil Ideas_. It only empowers the spread of the Cancer via revenge.
Only the cured cells (humans like this guy) can effectively cure the cancer of Evil Ideas within the Jihads while leaving them alive so that they can in turn help cure others and teach the next generation to be more peaceful.
It's happening, but not as fast as the average muslim is being swept up in jihad, unfortunately.
Continuing to pray that God enters the hearts of many Islamic extremists and they see His way. Then have the courage and strength to share His message

I looked into the identical twin gay studies a while back and those studies showed multiple examples of identical (DNA) twins where only one is gay. Were it purely DNA both should be gay or straight.
However, genetics don’t stop when a pair of DNA patterns combine. Epi-DNA affects the activation/deactivation of portions of ones DNA due to ones environmental/mental/emotional state, which are driven by choices of the parents. In the case of the father his choices affect the epi-dna of the sperm as they are developed (month after month) and the mother’s choices affect the epi-dna of the child during development (the mother’s dna contribution is set at the time of her birth). Additionally the choices of the individual during their childhood affects the epi-dna of their cells during puberty.
In short, it is not _a_ choice but rather multiple choices made by parents & child that will determine if the child identifies as “gay” in adulthood.
I joined late and “Due to high demand” I can’t get into the chat. Oh well, catch yall tomorrow (maybe)

She was 14 weeks when found Nov. 26 – The child might have been saved. There doesn’t have to be only two options. A third option which would have ended the pregnancy while saving the child could have been done. We have the technology, we just haven’t pulled it all together yet because both ProLife and ProChoice crowds are too addicted to the fight to actually work towards Changing the Problem.
we do not have the technology to keep a 14 week old fetus alive. we can barely do it with a 25 week old fetus, and when we do the complications are prolonged and severe. this was a tragedy, but given the family's wishes, it was the right decision.

Looks like there is a Chimpanzee costumed human between two other humans without costumes.
To call this offensive is to admit that YOU can’t tell them apart due to YOUR prejudice.

Luckily the power of an EMP falls drastically as distance from ground zero increases (inverse square IIRC) making it difficult for any single warhead to do damage beyond a small radius. The vast majority of electronic devices would not be permanently damaged, some would be fried, some magnetic media will be wiped, and the power may fail for a time but the idea that a single or even multiple EMP detonations will send a country back to a pre-industrial state is a bit of an overstatement.
That said, my server infrastructure friends always suggest that server rooms be built with a Faraday Cage around them (grounded metal mesh in walls, ceiling, and floors) as it is also good protection from lighting strikes.
People hear some scary name and common sense goes out the window. People seem to think it is a magic weapon covers all the US.

I don’t want to sound like too much of a plot geek but Mr. White was cooking Meth not just to cover healthcare bills but also to leave millions to his family since his partners forced him out of the mega-corp he helped found.
True but the medical bills were the catalyst that got him drug cooking (and he refused to accept money from his former partners to pay for the treatment).
I thought he wansn't forced out but left of his own volition to teach... But then again I have only seen 1 Season.
If I remember correctly I think Walt and his partner both liked the same woman and she ended up marrying Walt's partner. Walt took a $5000 buyout for his half of the company because he didn't want to work with the guy he felt stole his girlfriend (and the company beacame worth billions0.

Ray’s key point can be expanded to all Scientific inquiry.
If one does not personally repeat the science and confirm the results then they are accepting the conclusions as a matter of faith in the scientific rigor of others. This faith is far too often misplaced in those who’s income is predicated upon touting a false conclusion. (e.g. AGW fraud by CRU/Penn State)

That is essentially the question that I added to the Poll above.
