You're talking animals here? You believe male animals look at another male and knowing it is a male and the fact it is a male makes it want to have
sex with it? No, not in a million years. Animals have a much lower reasoning power, along with a strong blueprint to reproduce their species. They are
not having psuedo sex for the pleasure, they are reacting to a dna blueprint that propels them to reproduce.
well - looks like we get to repeat everything we've just been through in this thread - right?
have you read up on any of the science involved - any of the links/references?
I think Sweden must be a magical land - a place where a major museum feels confident enough and forward thinking enough - to actually devote the time,
energy and space to something we can only bicker about
ah - Sweden...
(I know someone who works at this museum - which is why I know about this exhibit - fascinating - everything involved)
The exhibition is mostly based on the work of the Canadian scientist and biologist Bruce Bagemihl who spent nine years going through collected
literature about homosexuality among animals.
He found that homosexuality is widespread in the animal world and that it often involves life-long relationships, not just brief homosexual
encounters. The results of his research is presented in this show, which includes a selection of more than 1500 different species for which homosexual
behaviour has been documented.
having a hard time finding a better link - that's not in Swedish
it comes down to this I think: are you willing to allow for the possibility that we are not done with learning?
or - do we already know all there is to know about the animal kingdom?
We understand everything - animals - nature - ourselves?
pack it all up and go home now?
moving past the science of frisky poodles - I think there might be more...
