Fascinating stuff.
Neural networks are a very fascinating study, the biological ones are interesting, but oh so inefficient, considering that our life spans have only recently increased beyond a few decades. The funny thing is how simple the brain actually is, it's not nearly as complex as some people want to believe it is, but it's simplicity is also it's strength, and thus why it's capable of being adaptive. You could actually take a human brain and rewrite the neural network to function exactly like our computers, of course there needs to be a way to keep the brain from degrading on death before that could ever actually happen.

<quoted text>Why does it matter the reasons, the results would still be more people in monogamous relationships.
When society puts homosexuals in the underground, things will be messy. Let them live as others and you might see them acting like others.
If they habd't made it an issue to start with, it wouldn't now be a (BIG WASTE OF TIME) issue now.

How much time has been wasted by this current admin-on such an already long time been NON-issue.

Just MORE, thirty years behind the times, step backwards to stupidity and regression bullchit.

What next, the "right for women to wear skirts above their knees? 2013!!??"

Are you saying just because we might not see something, doesn't mean it isn't happening?
That doesn't make any reasonable sense at all.
CONtrary much?
How do people get so stupid? Of course your idiotic strawman is idiotic.

Having no evidence for something doesn't mean it isn't happening. It means that there is no proof that it is happening.

And yes, I saw your follow up comment. It makes no sense either. Stop failing at basic English.

That's a little illogical and not a very good reason, because anyone with even a shard of an honest bone realizes, the ultimate, underlying reason that that agenda is even being pushed these days, is far more about the materialisTIC agenda, rather than the moral agenda.
Stop lying to yourself, or I shall not be able to "curtsy" back at ya lol.
Anybody with a speck of grey matter realizes that the government cannot continue to give benefits to heterosexual couples and refuse the same benefits to homosexual couples.

Good adjective huh? <and curtsy>.

I have a preposition for you-how about I LET you build me a bottomless well...and then I LET you fill it full of pebbles, but you have to use a pail with no bottom to do it.

How's that sound to you?

I'll let you figure out how stupid your questions was.
I already admitted I did not read the post above it slow enough for it to have sunk in.

Ergo-oops..my bad.

It's all about the materialisTIC-just like I mentioned.

Why we needed individual mandate options-you know-the ones opotus shoved out of the way BEFORE they even reaches the tabletops for discussion.

Another example of the current admins MORE wastes of tax payer time and dollars.

So, what you're talking about is kind of the opposite of the technological singularity? Or am I off in left field?

Speaking of the singularity...Want to start a pool for the date of the singularity? It may not happen for another 30 years or so, but I’m betting that this thread will still be alive when it does ;-)

Well, that would seem to be most consistent with which theory of the fate of the universe I think is probably more likely. But I've honestly not put a lot of thought into it.

<quoted text>I spread rapidly in part due to president Reagan ignoring it due to the false idea it was a homosexual only problem.
Also if homosexuals were allowed to marry they would be more likely to be in monogamous relationships. Thus it would be spread less quickly.
Either way, let god off the hook for doing nothing is akin to watching a drowning baby and doing nothing. If you have the power to do something and you do nothing, then you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
So what of malaria, MS and cancer? The list is long and help from god is short. You claim he helped some kid with an ear, yet billions suffer of these incurable afflictions. Sorry but that just does not sound fair. So if god is not fair, it stands to reason the god is not even real as god is claimed to be so darn good.
This is how my logic works, and I cannot just forgo that.
Whoa I can't let this one slip by. So you think that if gays were allowed to marry, they would be more monogamous? Really?

And no I can't blame God for the transfer of HIV from primates to humans. That was man's fault.

And as I said, as far as curing disease. It has happened through prayer. My own mother n law had cancer twice in two different places. After removal surgeries it popped up in different places. The third time of finding cancer, she did not want any treatment, just removal of the source. She was checked by two different doctors in different hospitals to determine how bad it was spreading.
2 weeks later she was due in for the removal surgery. I and another priesthood holder gave her a blessing. In the blessing I was prompted to tell her that according to her faith, her cancer would be gone and not return.
When the doctor began the surgery, he found nothing to remove. They stopped the surgery and tested her again and there was no trace of cancer. She has been cancer free for 6 years now.

I consider that a miracle as well.

One can then just believe without joining any church according to your answer. Christians that commit horrendous crimes will then be with God too. That may cause some Christians to think crime is no big deal.
