But you have to admit, the fact that he thinks he's qualified to debate evolution and natural selection is cute (in the same way that a baby making his first boom-boom is cute).
Kind of like delusional thinking that government is there to protect you.

Psychiatrists? I thought we were talking about the mental health profession?
A mental health professional is a health care practitioner who offers services for the purpose of improving an individual's mental health or to treat mental illness. This broad category includes psychiatrists (D.O. or M.D.), clinical psychologists (Psy.D or Ph.D.), clinical social workers (MSW or MSSW), psychiatric nurses, mental health counselors, professional counselors, pharmacists, as well as many other professionals. These professionals often deal with the same illnesses, disorders, conditions, and issues; however, their scope of practice differs. The most significant difference between mental health professionals are the laws regarding required education and training across the various professions.[1]https://en.wiki pedia.org/wiki/Mental_health_p rofessional
And what do you have against ducks?
The people who determine which "mental disorders" to include in the dsm manual are compromised mostly of psychiatrists, true or false?

I wouldn't recommend you for a job at a suicide prevention hotline.
You're just a bit on the long-winded side.
You almost have ME looking for my old .38
All due respect of course.
rabbee: yes a am sure, that the world committing genocide for the third time. always feel they have no need, for G-D or me. because you feel your doing, so much better with the devil.

suicide prevention, begins long before the person decides to stand on the edge of a cliff. and you cannot prevent more crime and corruption, with more G-Dlessness. the world has been trying that, for about 5700 years again. and guess what, it still don't work. as the further you get, from TheTruth of G-D, the worse it gets.

the united states, is in worse shape now. because of their establishment, of the secular occult religion. than it even was under, the corrupt form of christianity. even the cancer plague rates, has dramatically spiked as a result of this. from one in 50000, to about one in ten.

instead of winning wars, we are now in the, perpetual state of continuously losing them in stagnation. and you think, we need more G-Dless secularism to correct this. taint never going, to happen that way. as you can think that, the water swirling around in your toilet won't go down or over flow.

as you cannot fix the symptoms of G-Dlessness with more G-Dlessness. you cannot use the same kind of aniG-D thinking, that got you into this demonic situation to get you out. you can only make it, worse and worse that way. as i already know the ending of this story, for the world that just keeps doing it that way. as your flooding of antiG-D corruption, shall meet with the flood again. and you are all, held accountable for that murder/suicide.

Alfred Kinsey's and colleagues' study on male and female sexuality marked the beginning of a cultural shift away from the view of homosexuality as pathology and toward viewing it as a normal variant of human sexuality.

Kinsey had criticized scientists' tendency to represent homosexuals and heterosexuals as "inherently different types of individuals."

Therefore, he introduced a 0 to 6 scale to classify sexual behavior or fantasy from "exclusively heterosexual" to "exclusively homosexual" (the "Kinsey Scale"). The "Kinsey Reports" found that 37% of males and 13% of females had at least some overt homosexual experience to the point of orgasm; furthermore, 10% of males were more or less exclusively homosexual and 8% of males were exclusively homosexual for at least three years between the ages of 16 and 55. This is where the frequently quoted "10%" figure comes from. 2-6% of women reported more or less exclusively homosexual experience or response. A more modest 4% of males and 1-3% of females had been exclusively homosexual after the onset of adolescence until the time of the interview.

"Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories... The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects." (Kinsey, et al. 1948 Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948), p. 639).

0- Exclusively heterosexual with no homosexual
1- Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual
2- Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual
3- Equally heterosexual and homosexual
4- Predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual
5- Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual
6- Exclusively homosexual
(Kinsey 1948), p. 638

EVOLUTION?

1) Does evolution mean a creating of something new and superior in terms of information content from something inferior? This claim is as silly as creation from nothing.

2) Macro-evolution - bodily transformation of one species into another species, is pure BS.

3) Minor changes via gene mutation in a species can take place .

4) Before tackling macro-evolution, people should first dwell on the question of origins of life in matter - how did sentience arise in insentient matter?

5) Sentience, as a particular gradation of consciousness-energy with a specific rate of vibration, could have arisen in matter if and only if it was previously involved in matter and simpl.y emerged in matter when the surface conditions favored life on earth.

HughBe -- Look into the scriptures and there you shall see the WAY. If you are bent on following a man follow me as I am on the WAY. The law of God does not FLOCK around and I don't when dealing with it.

Frijoles---Whose "scriptures"?

HughBe--- God's scripture meaning the words He gave to Moses and all the prophets.

Avoid CORRECTED "scriptures". Use the most ancient versions.

Frijoles-- Why should I flock your way?

HughBe--- Because I am on the ONLY way. There is no other way but the way that was delivered to the prophets.

I'm not buying it. No more than I buy into your other definitions.
What comes to mind is a tiny minnow trying to swim upstream. Noble thought. But utterly useless, futile, and waste of all time.
HughBe---They are converts for whatever reason but it is certainly NOT scientific.

Frijoles---So, now that you have defined religion, your next project is to redefine science?

HughBe--- I shall now define religion and it is a belief in gods or God or the supernatural.

Definition of SCIENCE it is the study of the "world" that we live in and so its pillars are VERIFIABLE, REPLICABLE, OBSERVABLE etc.

Science is NOT faith it is NOT religion and so for it to REVERSE its position on a matter e.g. the classification of homosexuality as a mental health disease it means that the pillars of science must have been applied and led to NEW scientific discoveries. What are these VERIFIABLE discoveries?

Tell me CoR, how do you approach proving a mathematical equation?

Do you omit some or any of the steps or facts? If Not why not?

Having answered the above, link the concept above to evolution and teach me the TRUTH of evolution.

POLYTHEISM SCORES OVER MONOLATRY, MONOTHEISM & PAGANISM:

1) It's an egregious error to talk in terms of my god and your god.

2) These callous distinctions have been made by the so-called prophets with each trying to prove through force and threat that his god is simply the best while the other archetrypal beings or rival gods are inferior or evil. This parochial approach forms the basis of the Babylonian cults like kabbalah, Baal worship, Judaism, Islam and Christianity. This is the worst mistake one can make when it comes to dealing with the multiple powers of consciousness since it invites perpetual strife and imprisonment in narrowness.

3) If one is a believer the best appraoch is to respect all the various archetypal beings of the numerous planes of consciousness-energy. Respect the good and the bad powers so as not to antagonize any and to invite the blessings and help of all these powers of consciousness. In this way, the world is not divided into warring religious camps and at a deeper level of being one is not assaulted by those archetypal powers who one ignores, opposes and reviles. So, in this way, polytheism is superior to monolatrism, monotheism and paganism.

4) Monism exceeds polytheism and is the total conquest of the whole of nature and being that're simply seen as manifestations of one reality.

SUPRAMENTAL YOGA IS SUPERIOR TO MONISM:

1) The supramental yoga exceeds monism and takes its stand on the unified field of consciousness-energy as manifested through the supramental range of consciousness-energy.

2) The cardinal error comitted by nondualism/monism is to consider consciousness the source of energy which is simply impossible and so in the final analysis monism falters and becomes mumbo jumbo.

3) Monism fails to recognize the fundamental difference between consciousness and energy that are like the obverse and reverse sides of a coin or the 2 ends of one pole of existence. One is intelligence, the other force. They form a unified field that is inseparable in their ultimate reaches where the highest ranges of consciousness and energy merge.
