Newsflash - the Human Genome Project has been completed - guess how many "gay genes" were discovered?

A: ZERO.

Oh? And did they find the "HETEROSEXUAL" gene in the Human Genome Project?



You might want to go back to school and take a few sexuality and psychology classes.

LOL I picture him as an angry old man, punching the keys on his computer to type his 1950s-era opinions about the world around him onto this big old internets thing, only looking up from the screen long enough to shout "Get off my lawn!!".

A "choice". Get real.

Biology should be taught as natural history - describing the mechanisms and processes of life - with no regard to origins.
Theory of evolution does not discuss origins, and is in fact one of the mechanisms and processes of life. As such, what is your issue with it being taught?

Ah yes - the old ToE does not address abiogenesis argument - sorry but that card has been played before and has little trump power.

As for issues with it being taught - I already told you - it discusses origins and I am opposed to any topic about origins being discussed in a public secondary school(this always trips up the either/or people who think that anyone who opposes teaching ToE must be advocating for teaching of creationism or ID).

Anyways - leave it at natural history. You obviously think that ToE is part of natural history - I do not.

There are plenty of threads where that can be hashed out - I only mentioned ToE here because someone asked me if I had issues with biology being taught - and I stated my objections. Any further elaboration would be off topic.

None - thanks for making my point - the choice to be heterosexual or gay is just that - a choice.
