<quoted text>Believing in things that are not there is also natural, but I certainly do not try to outlaw it.

Humans have a large brain. We can use that brain to help determine what is detrimental and what is not. We can observe nature to inform us of what is detrimental or not. You have yet to demonstrate how homosexual marriage is detrimental.

I see America's number one founding principle is freedom.
I have demonstrated how your comparisons to gay marriage are detrimental (incest, bestiality, pedophilia).
Now either demonstrate how gay marriage is detrimental or else you just look like a superstitious person who condemns homosexuality with no logical reason to back up his bigotry.
I haven't seen your answer on incest yet either.

<quoted text>Well they can try, but the evidence is stacked against them. It is well documented that human incest produces birth defects. This in effect, is directly causing harm to a third party.
Evidence shows pheromones repel us from our relatives.
Evidence also shows that if separated and raised with no knowledge of each other, there is no such repellant.

And what if they aren't trying to have kids? Daddy and daughter just enjoy each other? Are you ok with that?

<quoted text>Their is a point and that point is, some things are just impossible. So when a religious person claims god can do anything, it is a demonstrably false claim.

Another point was shown here. When a religious person is confronted with a hard question, he avoids it like the plague. He runs and claims he is not running. The self denial is overwhelmingly evident.
I have never said God can do anything. So your dumb question, and your weak point, do not apply to me.

<quoted text>And just how can you know they are not practicing for the big game? The big game in the animal world is killing other animals to survive. It is a game that must be played and perfected. Now you seem to claim they need no practice and can know their emotions as they practice?
Because domesticated animals aren't practicing for anything and would most likely die if they had to live on their own.
That cat knows there is big bowl of fancy feast waiting. No reason to kill the mouse and then walk away.

It's not appropriate to teach religion in school. we live in a diverse society and can't teach all religions in schools. One has to keep these separate, it's up to the parents to inform their children on religious upbringing. I thought this issue was long solved, but i see it keeps coming back up.
You say that it's not appropriate to teach religion in school??? Well, if you are going to go so far as to take moral value out of the public school system, then evolutionism should be pulled as well, considering it also is a form of religion, with many followers.

You seem not to be able to understand the value of practice.
Humans hunting other humans most certainly should be considered immoral. I hope you don't intend to disagree with this too.

<quoted text>Well obviously killing humans is detrimental to some humans and violates their constitutional rights.
Again, freedom is key here in America, and if you kill a human, you are not allowing their freedom.

You seem to have no idea of how to use an understanding of nature and apply it to the human condition. You seem to just throw facts up in the air and not make refined connections.
I am starting to think your religious mind is blocking so much rational thought in your mind, you cannot evaluate the reality of nature.
The only difference is that humans are smart enough to create laws and punishments around these acts. If these laws and punishments were not in place, murders would be more frequent.

If what you do is causing harm to other humans, it is good cause not to condone it legally.

I realize I keep repeating this, but you clearly do not get the message unless it is pounded into your head.
They aren't doing harm to another human. The other human doesn't even exist and it has no rights remember?

So for sake of argument, it sounds like you are just fine with incest as long as they use birth control?

If California can teach children to sell Obamacare in public school, why wouldn't you want the bible taught, just for balance?

Hubris is not dangerous...

Bullchit.

Definition of HUBRIS
: exaggerated pride or self-confidence

Example-the HUBRIS of wiki-STUPIDITY

"On Tuesday, Russia also said that Snowden had applied for asylum in 15 countries, not 21 as had been claimed by anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks a day earlier. There was no immediate explanation for this discrepancy."

AS in: When Lack of CREDIBILITY say anything type bullchit-- due to LACK of personal accountability due to LACK of correct facts (sans spin or opinion), it then becomes a PROBLEM (* three.)

As in BUH-Obble-headed; birdbrain parrot squawk and repeat anything, BUH`-ULL-Chit.
Hubris.

If you ever wondered about the origin of intelligence in humans and other mammals, that's the answer from a team of researchers led by Professor Seth Grant of the University of Edinburgh.

Interesting possible theory isn't it-especially in some fossil species (of the pre-Cambrian tethys era) are known to produce gametes and brood planulae.

Personal opinion-such is best studied by those in sober states, with sound, drug free minds however.

And what about a brother and sister that were separated and did not grow up together? How would they know not to be attracted to each other?
There's actually some scientific research on that too, which involves sweaty t-shirt comparisons of several different specimens.
Those related, were observed to be repelled from each other.

Of course it is growing. It is easier and you get to please yourself however you feel and believe there will be no consequence. Sounds like party time while the parents are away. Whoo hoo
All is great until you hear the car pull up outside.

Anyone would think after a certain age, an actual clue on that kind of stuff would sink in.

Especially after 35 or so!!

Not actually, in a "two seperate entities" sense anyway.

Instinct may also guide us in this manner: Previous research has revealed that human females preferred the musk of sweaty T-shirts worn by men with suitably different MHC genes.

On the bright side, not all parents are like that-some of us really do still value stuff like morality, ethics, integrity, credibility, you know traits that are cultivated by a more civilized society, rather than just the random herd pack animalisTic mentality.
