    There are actually a number of researchers out there that think at least some examples ‘gayness’ maybe caused by other diseases, as in are symptoms of another disease such as stroke effecting the brain, or caused by viral infections. These are all external forces (perhaps infection started in the womb, complications at birth, or after birth), rather than genetic (as in coming from mother and father’s genes). Although some diseases may affect someone’s genes (like a cancerous mutation), it doesn’t mean these individuals were ‘originally fertilized/developed that way’.

    Of course this is still under western research. The field is very different once you get to eastern research (Japan, China etc) which view homosexuality under a continuum, that sexuality is fluid, and that people may change sexuality over a lifetime. There is no stigma behind homosexuality, it was never a crime (and sometimes praised), it is rather normalized that many people switch between sexual preferences. In some cases certain eastern cultures never had a word for homosexuality because it was never taboo to begin with, but natural part of cultural development. So in their perspective ‘homosexuality’ is more of a societal concept, rather than something people are born into, or influenced by environment/nature or nurture.

    Hermaphrodites are not homosexuals, or not necessarily heterosexual, or necessarily bisexual. They might be or they might not be. Some are physically more male biologically and some are more more female biologically. Some might have oversized clitorus/micro-penis, and a vagina/uterus. But no ovaries, no testes. Some might be sterile, some might be physically Able to produce sperm, others might be able to get pregnant.

    It’s rather complicated, being that they are biologically/physically between genders, and may be more female than male or more male than female depending on the situation.

    Blinks is actually comparing gayness to cancer? A disease? I thought it taken off the list of mental disorders/diseases decades ago…

    If there was a cure for cancer would one take it? If there was a cure for gayness would one take it?

    I’m pretty sure this organization would agree that gayness is a disease that can be cured… Just like cancer is a disease that can potentially be cured. That’s sort of its point with the “ex-gay” concept.

    Maybe you need to rethink your analogy.

    Eye for an eye, they were quoting the Hammurabi code.

    Are we back to the days of the roman coliseums, that people want to see televised snuff films?

    If its his own cave, or he had permission from the owners, then let him have at it…
    It kinda reminds me H.R. Geiger’s work it as a sort of alien lifeform look to it.

    “OneOfSeven77 ”

    What you just described is what is called a ‘protection racket’.

    No church or organization should have to get the right to ride from anybody else in a free society… Free speech, freedom of association or not to associate… What they did was a form of ‘bullying’…

    Kumi in the conspiracy theories, the Mason’s actually ‘control’ the government. The secret puppet masters so to speak. Heh heh, thus the reason why all the ‘secrecy’. Pretty much the story about Masons in every ‘fictional’ story they appear in!
    In reality several mainstream religions ban members from being Free Masons.

    Catholics, Eastern Orthodox churches for example.

    Even Church of England.

    But Catholics also targets of conspiracy theories as well, and have secretive aspects as well.

    Also a lot of secret societies depending on the particular branch is based off of Gnosticism. Which is not exactly ‘Christian’ (although as a religion it grew up and coexisted around the same time as Christianity). Some versions of Gnosticism view Lucifer and God as essentially polar opposites, but needed for balance. Yin/Yang. As in one represents ‘order’ in the universe, and the other ‘free will’.
    Others such as Rosicrucian’s adopt a lot of pagan ideas and Egyptian hermetics and kabbalism. The “God” in their traditions is a sort of mix of Christian/Osiris/Allah, etc.
    In general the only requirements to become a member in many of these societies is simply believe in a higher power.

    Kumi it was largely in humor (poking fun at conspiracy theorists). I know many Free Masons that are excellent people.

    Although you will find people who will definitely criticize over the use of ‘ritual’ and ‘secret mysteries’ based on biblical principles about such things..

    Thy apparently claim to have named it after the American fighter squadron Hell’s Angels who flew in China during WW2.

    I know of a number of ‘clubs’ with “history” behind them as well, except the members found Jesus, and changed their name to something less demonic.

  • [18] December 2, 2014 at 4:10am

    You trust the Shriners? I.E. the Free Masons (aka Illuminati or not) and their secret ‘rites and rituals’?

    But I guess its too simple and basic of conspiracies to blame Free Masons about everything! Although its a trope usually to think of them as ‘evil’.

    808 patriot, it was the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Not simply a tree of knowledge.

    Remember it was Adam who was set up to name all the animals then pass that “knowledge’ to his wife, as well as explain to her the knowledge of the garden, and what she could and couldn’t eat, and the “knowledge” of the rules passed to him from God..

    Actually some evolutionists believe at least some animals do have ‘sentience’, and an ability to learn, make decisions, and almost as developed as humans. But that animals of all types including humans are still controlled by base instincts and emotions. “They are born that way” as the LGBT crowd like to say (ironically they look towards sexulity in animals to justify their own animal-like behavior).

    I hope that Penn Jillette made you understand it in a Christian’s nature to show others why they believe, in order to try to save themselves from themselves Like he said t would be a very uncaring and selfish person if they believed they had a way to save others, and didn’t share that salvation with others, and kept it to themselves.

    So do some black people ironically. They see education as being a form of ‘white privilege’.

    It’s not the kids fault they dress the way they do, its the parents fault for letting them dress the way they do. Don’t attack the kids… attacking the parenting skills…

  • [3] December 1, 2014 at 1:25pm

    Keres, what kind of person would someone be if they didn’t ‘care’ about another human being that was hurting themselves by their own actions/beliefs/thoughts?

    You don’t even seen animals of the same species or similarly closely related breeds necessarily ‘work together’, unfortunately. Selfishness is a normal human trait.

    Altruism might exist in humans, but often for selfish personal gain as well. Being nice because they are likely to get something out of it.
