“We do not know why people are heterosexual. Maybe when we figure that out, we can determine why some people are not,” he said in an interview with WWBT-TV.
People are heterosexual because we were born (and designed) that way. There has been a confusion over sexuality for psychological/emotional pleasure and sexuality due to biology. As it turns out, humans need the opposite sex to reproduce naturally. That simple requirement makes us all inherently heterosexual by default. The rest of what we do as humans with our sexual proclivities is just an attempt to satiate our psychological desires and not a result of an absolute demand by preordained biological imperatives.

This is a story about an “atheist” “scientist”. I didn’t mix anything, it’s part of the story and the whole reason why his opinion is being vaulted to the fore as if his credentials lend his viewpoint more weight than the average person. In the same manner that Dawkins is trying to pioneer the eradication of religion, this poser is following suit.
I am a scientist, I believe in God. The zero sum result is that I demand proof from science and know full well that when it comes to the singular most fundamental question of existence, “Why?” There is nothing but an echo chamber of sentences that start with “probably” and contain the words “might have”. There is a parallel and an explicit use of faith when we start to piece together stories as though they were fact when no one was there to make the observation. It’s always extrapolation and never direct observable proof.

“Like same-sex matrimony, Krauss said that slavery, too, was ended in a generation, adding his belief that the same dynamic applies to religious adherence.”
Problem: slavery still exists, just not in this country at this time.
Theoretical physicists are great, they’re like science fiction writers with self-authenticating credentials. Ask any string theorist to provide solid scientific observation of strings themselves or the 7-14 extra dimensions predicted by the theory and you’ll find nothing more than FAITH in mathematics. There are too many “unknowables” for atheists to be able to wipe out the questions that have been pervading human thought since we were cognitive enough to have such thoughts.
Are there facets of religion that are probably fiction? Yes.
Are there facets of science that are definitely conjecture? Yes.
Is there a difference between fiction and conjecture? It depends on who you ask.
You are mixing Atheism with "Knowables" and "Science". Atheism speaks to only one thing, a disbelief in Gods - it does not speak to science or knowledge. It may be true that many Atheists do have a stronger belief in science than a Theist might, but that is not a requisite connection.
Science is evidenced based. Religion is not, hence the reason they keep pushing all that "Faith" nonsense.
Even the greatest scientist of all was a theist. And so was Darwin.

I “blame the black guy” for being caught on camera robbing a store MOMENTS before he assaulted a cop. I do, it was in fact his fault, the skinny dred guy he was with was probably egging him on but didn’t actually throw punches.
Race has nothing to with being a craptastic human being but he just so happened to be of a darker skin tone than an albino so we’ll call him “black.” I’m as dark as the president but labeled “white”, weird how those labels don’t translate to reality. But race isn’t the issue, no matter how badly race-baiters want it to be.
The actions of the rtarded (sic) dead man (18+ is an adult) that tried to kill a police officer in his own car are the issue So please, for your own benefit and that of your fellow citizenry, clue in to reality. Wake up. At least try to. Just this once. Succeed.

New slogans for the protestors t-shirts/signs:
I AM AN IDIOT
FACTS MEAN NOTHING
GIVE ME YOUR STUFF, I’LL TAKE IT ANYWAY
I DON’T GIVE A **** ABOUT TRUTH
VICTIMHOOD IS A WAY OF LIFE IN THE HOOD

This is the true animalistic crappiness of the world we live in.
The Stoning of Soraya M. is a movie that is “based” on a true story and has the exact same details within it, but the stoning involved not only the father of the woman… but also her son. One of the women who played in that movie also narrated the film about the young girl shot in Iran during their protests: “For Neda”
All the BS about whether people deserve to be shot flies out the window when they do things that make them deserve to be shot at. I don’t advocate violence towards people but sometimes they do that to themselves. If this was my grandfather…. Turning it around, would these people want their grandparents beat up by random people at a gas station? Seriously, where’s the empathy anymore? Race baiting polarization has destroyed our connection to each other and it sucks.

The headline is incredibly misleading…
it assumes these jellyfish have a spine in the first place.

I was a research scientist at a high-tech facility who was called “God-boy” by my colleagues after I refused to denounce the existence of God.
The stereotypical pompous (ironically) holier-than-thou intellectuals are a reality, at least they have been during the course of my life.
Sadly, many of these left wing-nut liberals are thriving while they teach our children in our public schools, our colleges, and our universities today! They are spreading their errant beliefs like a cancer, that rotts the souls of our youth! It is written; "In the last days there will be a great falling away from the faith (of the gospel of Jesus Christ)." We are seeing this occur during our own lifetime!

Guys, don’t believe the hype. As a teacher I was told yesterday that “common core” is going away and will now be called next generation standards or some such. They are only re-branding the stuff, not ditching it out right.
In TX I saw Common Core on my kids texts. TX is supposedly not in CC at all. I complained to my district and was told the state law forbidding use of CC only actually says that CC can not be the "primary" source of instruction but can be used for supplemental assignments like homework.
I had blood shooting out of my eyes I was so pissed at her response. I am definitely running for school board next time around on this issue and going to push for any teacher or admin or district personnel to be fired if they allow a CC lesson or text even as supplementary material.

Is the climate changing? Yes.
Has the climate always been changing? Yes.
Are we capable of effecting the Earth’s climate to the extent that we can “reverse” whatever change is happening at the moment? No.
Might as well try to make a weather machine.
Idiotic bureaucrat is idiotic.

Neat, they censored “b a g g e r”. Good on you Blaze!

How did this d-****** get re-elected?
I love Florida but really disagree with people who would install this idiot back into office. At least I don’t live in Orlando.
Neat, they censored "b a g g e r". Good on you Blaze!
The Orlando area is loaded with people who are holding their hands out for gubmint checks. Grayson also got back in because he actually supported his opponent's primary challenger, who was a very weak and unpopular Republican who had no chance of winning. Florida has so many great things but there are a lot of people who I wish would just move to Southern California where they can have all of the communism they want.
