The reason most people believe it is wrong because evolution would tend to try to eliminate non-reproducing portions of the population. One would
hope that at some point people would have intellectually evolved far enough to realize that humanity is not at risk of extinction with 6 billion and
counting. Trouble is evolution is just a complex set of simple mechnisms. Instinct is the base mechanism of evolutionary pre-programmed behavior and
attitudes. The utilization of creative minds to improve the human condition serve humanity almost as well as evolution and at some point may be more
important. If you can get beyond your easychair instincts you might find a new perspective on this and many other subjects.
You have no evidence to back up what you say, at least i have statistical evidence that shows that AIDs is targeting gay men. And are you a biologist,
beacause if you are i would gladly reconsider. All you are saying is an OPINION, my posts are FACT. There has been much done reasearch on evolution
and survial. These instintcs you say that are built into us, are natural. Nature has programmed us to have sex with the opposite sex of course.
This is from the July 2004 issue of Scientific American:
"Mickey Has Two Moms
No sperm needed: mice are born from two eggs
By Diane Martindale
Being fatherless took on new meaning in April when a research team, led by Tomohiro Kono of the Tokyo University of Agriculture, created mice from two
eggs. The group's achievement does not promise a new way to make babies; rather it helps to explain how egg and sperm work together and why males are
vital in normal reproduction.
The process that created the mice is akin to parthenogenesis, in which an unfertilized egg develops on its own and produces viable offspring. It
occurs in some lower creatures such as fleas, lizards and turkeys. The barrier to parthenogenesis in mammals is thought to be genetic imprinting, in
which some genes needed for embryonic development are turned off in the female genome but switched on in the male genome, and vice versa. Thus, for an
embryo to grow properly, it must have one set of chromosomes with a female imprint and the other with a male imprint. In past studies, mouse eggs have
been induced to replicate without fertilization, but they survive only briefly....continued at Scientific American Digital "
Notice the scientists say: "why males are vital in normal reproduction."
So go do some research before ranting your OPINIONS.Now i have scientific evidence that leans towards gays being abnormal, and most major religions
also agreeing. Both science AND religion are agreeing on this topic. Are you to say they are all wrong?
