That is pure circular reasoning. All results are proof of the hypothesis. Then all hypothesis are true.
You keep referring to emotions as if they are an intangible thing that can't be measured or studied. It's as if you've never heard that an entire field of study called psychology exists.

Another possibility is that the person in your example always had a latent same-sex attraction that might have been suppressed/denied or just not acted upon.
It is easily argued that everyone has homosexual tendencies.
Just like everyone has homicidal tendencies.

Actually, Wassuup hit on one of the 'messages' embodied in the myth.
Sadly, he can't build on it. That is what happens when you take an allegory literally.

You can't claim religion ignites science and then when it specifically uses science to better help its understanding then turn around and claim it had to be self-serving
I'm sure plenty of people would continue to take instruction from the church no matter what science claimed about things like carbon dating and fossils. The church should be commended for rethinking how they looked at Genesis when shown science was showing sine good evidence that the early was much older than they thought.
The church started in a very young scientific age. It is willing to consider new info when interpreting
Why are you arguing against claims I didn't make? Religions have to evolve or they become extinct. Simple. Verifiable. Evidential.

It's cute how you try to regurgitate arguments made from those before you but try to wait for the proper context at least
You can't even follow your own writing. Your very first sentence was about the number of people that have believed in gods. An argument from popularity. A logical fallacy. You're not very bright.

To see nature the universe and people and spontaneously believe it all happened on it's own, is to be indoctrinated by others and is a made up irrational mental concept.

Ya, a boot isn't a shoe.
Wikipedia is your baby, not mine. You can look at when the page was edited. You'll see how ridiculous your meritless claim is.

A boot has always been a type of shoe. Thank you for the organ grinder monkey version of the riverdance. My wager was well put.

I rarely, very rarely, quote Wikipedia.

The boot is a boot, not a shoe (that's why it's called a boot).

Cuz I know that boots are footwear, shoes are footwear but boots aren't shoes.
Yeah and you aren't brains. Care to wager a sum that the web will prove you the buffoon you are?
