I believe that even you should realize that you have not answered what comes next so do give it another try.

Eric---I told you, it's a minority like other minorities.
I think you can read between those lines.

Here is a START. "Ye shall NOT add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you."
Have YOU supported ADDITIONS to the COMMANDMENTS?
The wave offering is not an addition. Its a clear commandment doofus

Since when is Rotello's opinion a scientific study? What are Rotello's qualifications? What does "many" mean? Two? Three? How about 40%? Is 40% "many gay men"?

Hugh----Once again, I HughBe love some men e.g. sons, friends, father etc and have affection for males on this forum but does that make me gay? NO.
Those fellows are GAY because they want to FLOC the rear orifices of other men.
Wow, I never thought you were that dense. You know, men have two "orifices". Could the other 60% be interested in "flocing" the other orifice or having their other orifice "floced"? Read the study. Become educated.

I but know the commandments, and therefore ask why do ye diminish ought from it:
Lev. 23
15
And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the day of rest, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the waving; seven weeks shall there be complete;
16
even unto the morrow after the seventh week shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall present a new meal-offering unto HaShem.
17
Ye shall bring out of your dwellings two wave-loaves of two tenth parts of an ephah; they shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, for first-fruits unto HaShem.
18
And ye shall present with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams; they shall be a burnt-offering unto HaShem, with their meal-offering, and their drink-offerings, even an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto HaShem.
19
And ye shall offer one he-goat for a sin-offering, and two he-lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace-offerings.
20
And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first-fruits for a wave-offering before HaShem, with the two lambs; they shall be holy to HaShem for the priest.
21
And ye shall make proclamation on the selfsame day; there shall be a holy convocation unto you; ye shall do no manner of servile work; it is a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
22
And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corner of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleaning of thy harvest; thou shalt leave them for the poor, and for the stranger: I am HaShem your G-d.

What a weird statement: finding race and the n-word (whatever that means for you in implications) given that the entire human 'race''* is of African descent.
*Unless you have some Aldebarans in your backyard we have no other 'race'.

Apropos skincolour and homo-sexuality:
Phenotypical variations filling up the fringes of recurring mutations.

We allready saw that the phenotype most likely occurs during pregnancy as a hormonal reaction to extreme stress followed by overload and to little hormone production.
Usually in extreme submissive relations with a macho, overbaring 'husband' that in general humiliates his wife.

So from that perspective we need change in that attitude. And stop harping on phenotypical changes that like skincolour cannot be helped or remedied.

Typical heterosexual macho behaviour as well as old fashioned within marriage attitudes are to blame.

MAAT, that's my whole point.

As to use "of African descent", the scientific word is ne__gr__oid race. Topix equates that word with another similar derogatory word and won't allow its use. "Of African descent" was closest I could use without mangling the word as above.

By now i usually know what your point is.

But this one was rather oddly phrased. As in could the point not have been made differently.
I know all the connotations of the n-word.
How do you figure 10 %? USA, right now demographics in particular i suppose.
Minority being the point and phenotype.

But frankly we are all ne_gr_oid...though not all living in America.

Skip any race/deme/whatever since it makes no sense and is more about politics and prejudice than anything else.

Fasting for as little as three days can regenerate the entire immune system, even in the elderly, scientists have found in a breakthrough described as "remarkable".

Although fasting diets have been criticised by nutritionists for being unhealthy, new research suggests starving the body kick-starts stem cells into producing new white blood cells, which fight off infection.

Scientists at the University of Southern California say the discovery could be particularly beneficial for people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients on chemotherapy.

It could also help the elderly whose immune system becomes less effective as they age, making it harder for them to fight off even common diseases.

The researchers say fasting "flips a regenerative switch" which prompts stem cells to create brand new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the entire immune system.

Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose and fat but also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells.

During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells.

In trials humans were asked to regularly fast for between two and four days over a six-month period.

Scientists found that prolonged fasting also reduced the enzyme PKA, which is linked to ageing and a hormone which increases cancer risk and tumour growth.

So, does nature mandate a violation of gun ownership laws?

The physical part of human action is the putting of the ideas and thoughts that we have into concrete form.

1. Jump off of a high building.

2. Stick your head into a shark's mouth.

3. Kiss a rattlesnake.
The examples listed above are dangerous consequences of acting foolishly or a they carry a cause/effect relationship - there's nothing legal or illegal about any of them.

Eric---10% of the world population is gay. 10% of the world population is of a race that officially begins with an "n" but the best that can be posted on Topix is "of African descent". Both are minorities.

Maat----What a weird statement:

HughBe--- Indeed Maat, his statement is weird and bizarre.

Maat---- finding race and the n-word (whatever that means for you in implications) given that the ENTIRE human 'race''* is of African descent.

HughBe--- I believe that his weird comment was due in part to the fluctuation in hormones that afflict him ever full moon.

Maat---*Unless you have some Aldebarans in your backyard we have NO other 'race'.

HughBe--- Good point, Maat. In my mind RACE is a non-issue and was not under consideration but ABNORMALITY was. Race does not determine the qualities/value of a person. The true value of a person lies in his or her integrity, ability to be just, fair, kind and merciful.

So race is of no value except to those who are deficient in one or more of the above qualities and who are trying to reassuring themselves that they are not lacking when they are in fact INADEQUATE.

Finally Maat, I shall say something which I believe that I am saying for the first time i.e. I like you. Your current post has deepened my admiration and respect for you as a human.

Earlier.

There is mention of a disease condition resembling AIDS in the anceint ayurveda and aside from this this disases codntion the medical treatise contains amazing information on germs, immune system, therapies, formation of sperm/ovum, inoculation, brain surgery, 3000 methods of surgery, heart and its functions, plastic surgery, bone setting, diet, classes of life forces and how they move the organs and how their imbalance adversely affects health etc. etc etc

QUESTION ON RACES

If phenotype manifestations are a result of genetic mutations, then:

1) How does one account for the marked anatomical variations and vast intellectual differences among the races?

2) Can the genotype of an African be manipulated in the lab so that his phenotypal features and mental abilities match those of say a Japanese or a European?
