I tend to think that human beings have a very underrated sense of smell, and that a baby's sex or sexuality is determined by the pheromones (as well as other chemicals) a woman smells or encounters before and during pregnancy. I think that's why there are roughly the same number of male and female babies born. Too many male pheromones in the air, a woman will more likely give birth to a female, and vice versa.

Well I believe in Jesus Christ the son of man but also the son of God. He tells of everlasting life, but implies in many ways that this will continue in the 7 levels of heaven as outlined both in Revelations and I think it was John perhaps. So this place we go, where matter becomes translucent or transparent (heaven is alike that of a sea of glass; revelations) (also conforms to my physics theory based on projective geometry to encompass the true meaning of space and time) is where we will live most of our lives. This low density of space here on earth is just weak being so far from the black hole which gives all life by consuming small particles and making larger ones able to escape it's event horizon- (they have a DeBroglie freq' that allows them to break mach angles of interaction with light, kinetically, as all particles in space use kinetics to interact, not magical photons or superstrings).
So if I am re-incrarnated, it will be in my same body unless I do something to really piss off God and Jesus, like commit suicide, which is the sin of sins that says to God that you are too weak and too faithless to enter heaven. So if you want to be reincarnated as a worm or a dog or something, just kill yourself. It's just plain stupid that anyone would want such a thing.
Why would we grow, why would we fight? For nothing but to be recycled like a can? Stupid.

Cool thread. I agree with you for the most part, you kinda went off topic couple times, but I really do understand the gist of what you're trying to say.
To add to that, I think everyone is a little bit homosexual. It's just the ratios that differ between people. Somone can be 80% straight 20% gay, 50% gay, 50% straight, 90%gay, 10% straight; its all over the charts... hahaha. I talked about this with someone and they totally agreed. It make sense to me.

The difference between human beings and other Earth animals is that with the human being, the Intellect itself is actively involved in its own generation management. We call it the developing personality. This likely began as a result of the level of intellectual sophistication making that feedback (bio-feedback) loop possible, which created the neural grooves needed to restructure the human brain to become open to that direct access, and was genetically passed along as an evolutionary improvement.
This made humans more open to innovative survival response, and fueled the increase in general intellectual sophistication, as opposed to the simpler animal brain management process which only involves DNA and its instinctive management hierarchy protocol structure. This is why a breed of dog will always respond to training as that breed of dog responds to that training - of course, within normal +/- ranges - as opposed to the breadth of responses possible from a human being, regardless of race or ethnicity. This also made humans less uniform from the neck up, even as large-scale die-offs and the inherent evolutionary challenges involved in a shrinking gene pool caused humanity to become a lot more uniform from the neck down than most other genus groupings.
Sexuality is a base-attribute, and while DNA can be contributive, the procreative imperative would only drive the need to put the jack in another human being's plug. It wouldn't make the determination about which plug or the gender of the human whose plug gets plugged. That would be the determination of the personality, since it's a higher function than raw reproductive urge.
As to what causes one human to be homosexual, as opposed to heterosexual, the reasons are always unique to the individual. This is the impact of having two distinct intellect management efforts that battle for control at all times. The DNA of the Homo Sapien versus the personality of the human being, and a unique person emerging as a result.
Frankly, with what we already understand about the formation of a whole person, the notion of Reincarnation seems too incompatible - on the whole - to be an accurate assessment of what people have experienced when recounting these past lives. There is a much more plausible explanation for the well documented indications of Reincarnation, but I don't have the time or inclination to expound on it here.
I will say this, sexuality is much more complicated than something that can be attributed to any one driver. It's uniquely balanced between the DNA and the personality, since sex and love are the two drives that fuel it and each of these is driven by one and the other respectively.
