1 - Homosexuality can be (but not always is) a natural predisposition in individuals
2 - A LOT of conspiracy theories and/or 'evidence' presented for said conspiracy theories on ATS is laughable at best and sad at worse

To be natural, something must go with the flow of life instead of fighting against its current. For something to be unnatural, something must try to swim in an unswimmable direction.

You mean like when salmon swim upstream to spawn and create new life?

I think that people who brag about their IQ are neither intelligent nor wise and would make the worst possible leaders.

In general...I think that people who have a strong desire to lead...are usually bad leaders.

I think that if you are repulsed by homosexuality you are likely a latent homosexual.

I think that the more you protest..the more I am convinced.(preemptive strike : ) )

Aliens exist, and they aren't (all) demons.

The only good corporation is a dead one. I don't have anything against small scale Capitalism, but not corporate.

9/11 WAS an Inside Job.

I generally enjoy associating with Communists, even though I don't necessarily agree with everything they believe.

I (provisionally) like Ayn Rand, but I also tend to think that Milton Friedman needed an exorcism.

Virtually my entire religious/spiritual belief system would probably count. In particular, however, my worship of Kali Ma, who most people see as a monster.

Some of what David Icke says makes a lot of sense to me. Some of it, however, doesn't.

I don't crave drama, and I don't like doom porn.

I think Carl Sagan was science's (and/or atheism's) answer to Paris Hilton.

For the first half of last year, I actually started learning to like atheists. Then I started reading this forum.

I consider most of atheism's celebrities to be obnoxious, to varying degrees; with the exception of Steven Fry. I would probably like Richard Dawkins, however, if he wasn't such a fanatic, and so full of anger and hate.

I'm aware of how much some feminists hate men, but I wish they didn't.

Homosexuality doesn't bother me as much as it seems to bother some people, but I don't necessarily want it to be in close proximity to me. You can do whatever you want in your own space though, and I don't condone anyone killing or bullying you. I don't want you creating a legal scenario where the severity of a crime varies, depending on the social identity of its' target, however.

I am deeply afraid of Christians, to the point where I literally can't physically be around them any more. I'm not afraid of Jesus Christ; I'm afraid of them and their judgement of me, because they always think I'm damned. I also don't like the fact that they attach guilt and fear to literally everything that exists outside of their own belief system.

I don't believe abortion is always wrong. Mostly, perhaps, but not necessarily always.

I don't think capital punishment is always wrong, either; but I don't think it should be used very often.

ET Beings are real
Humans are bio-mechanical machines inhabited by Spirits
Book Religions are for Mind Control purposes
Earth is a School for Divine Spirits
Humans live many lifetimes on Earth, and on other planets
Most planets in our system are in fact inhabited, in higher dimensions
Humanity, as we know it, originally came from a far away Universe
Our World Leaders are Retarded

If it's unswimmable, then how do the salmon manage to do it?

Also, I support population control and would rather have just a few million people on this planet.

1. Contary to the popular opinion that mankind is superior and/or a chosen species by some god, I think that mankind is the worst mistake mother nature ever made.

2. As long as humans are ruled by their chemical makeup, this world is as good as it's gonna get. Could get worse, but not better.

3. I think the planet is about to undergo a cataclysmic change.

4. It should be against the law for children to be actors. It's ruined too many lives.

5. All booze and drugs should be by medical prescription only.

6. I think battered women are just as responsible for their plight as the batterer himself.

7. The burying of radioactive waste from nuclear plants should be illegal.

8. I think the U.S. government should stay out of the affairs of other countries.

9. If second hand smoke is so bad for everyone, then all tobacco items should be outlawed and removed from store shelves.


TEN. Men should have a joint in the middle of the spine so they can bend over and... eh, never mind.

So to answer your question, what is natural is if there is to be life, there must also be death.

I never asked you a question. I only disagreed with your characterization of nature. I still do!

I think you misunderstand what the terms "natural" and "life" imply.

Once again, I disagree. Furthermore, your long, bloviated attempt to justify your original statement only demonstrates a strong sense of arrogance, and not intelligence.

See ya,

O.K. I'll play along.

I believe we've lost alot of our freedom.

I'm begining to believe in the 9/11 inside job, all though not thoroughly satisfied witht the popular opinions Couldn't it be they knew but didn't know where?

I believe we will have another false flag event before election time.

I believe the mainstream media is leading us down the wrong path and either letting themselves be manipulated or going along happily with the government.

I don't believe our votes have counted at all especially since initiating the DieBold voting machines.

I think most politicians give lip service to get elected, and then quickly forget what they promise when they learn their way around the system so, they can get rich off of our backs.

I've got some other ideas but that's enough to flame away at for now.

If by arrogant you mean I am firm in my understanding of all of this which we call life, then yes, I'm very arrogant. However, I'm not implying that I know everything. Also, I forgive you for your insults.

All I'm saying is, happiness comes when you are yourself, and don't put on a great big act. Some are prone to loving those of the same gender, others are different. What they do on their own lives doesn't effect you and has no impact on our species, unless homosexuality becomes the majority's preference.

Oh I -know- I hold some unpopular opinions. Like, I for one, and a social conservative-fiscal liberal. I am alllllways hearing people (proudly) quip, "I'm a social liberal fiscal conservative!" I even listened to a local corporate media terrestrial radio host ask on air, "Whooooo'd be a social conservative fiscal liberal?!" Turns to his radio partner, "Are there such things as those?" Then asks anyone who is one, to call in and admit it, if they dare. No one did. It seems to me, that the majority of people are social conservative-fiscal conservative, social liberal-fiscal conservative, or social liberal-fiscal liberal.
Guess I stand alone on this'un.

My unpopular opinions:

1:ESP is a normal natural ability that we all have in some shape or form.
2:The spirit world is not full of evil beings, in fact most contact is from loved ones that really care about us still.
3:Christianity has lost its way, however, it is what is in your heart that counts anyways, so the religion does not matter that much to begin with.
4:RON PAUL 2012!!!(it is actually a very unpopular stance with my friends)
5:That 9/11 was not an inside job, but that our policies in the USA DID create it.

Also, I forgive you for your insults.

What insults? I was only being honest!
An example of your arrogance:

I think you misunderstand what the terms "natural" and "life" imply.

Your long, bloviated attempt to justify your original statement:

Life is all of this, everything, the whole shebang we experience. Rocks are incredibly natural, because they do what rocks do: They are made, exist, break down, and are spread to the four corners of the Earth. Rocks cannot be anything but rocks, and what's more, rocks don't try to be anything but what they are. Rocks don't try to make an effort to be trees. Rocks are rocks, trees are trees.

We are, in the same way, naturally natural like the rock. And if we are to be natural, then this body will grow old, get sick, and die. Which is why we should try to stay healthy if we want a long life, but expecting yourself to live forever is very unnatural. Thusly, living implies death, death implies life. Over the course of time, however, we start to do very unnatural things. We try to be who we really aren't. We play a funny game with ourselves. We give ourselves an identity, a persona, and we act the part out until the day we die. But when you live in a completely natural, spontaneous way, you'll notice that not only do you feel better with yourself, but at peace with life, and comfortable with others. So, if you're gay, be gay. If you're straight, be straight. This is a great big world we live in, and there's room for all kinds. Besides, there's more important things to worry about than whether homosexuality is right or wrong, like what you'll be having for dinner today.

I didn't see an intelligent part. Did I miss it?

See ya,
