How 'bout this one.
Gays think the christian church hates them because they espouse the doctrine that homosexuality is a grave sin, punishable eternally, when all other sins are matters of choice, while the person who is gay was likely born gay, and that is no different than being punished eternally for being born with a deformed limb.[/QUOTE]

I know gays think that. they think people are born with a sex drive.

That's stupid.

I'm wondering why people think that Christians focus so much attention on one sin when we don't.

I'm divided on it. The libertarian in me says that all illicit drugs should be decriminalized. I'd like to put that to the test and see how it works before I give it my firm endorsement. If the carnage is minimal, I'd prefer it to this cruel, unjust, and devastating War on Drugs, which probably causes much more damage than a more permissive policy.
I am considering alcohol prohibition as its subsequent reversal now. The damage done by prohibition far outweighed the damage done by whatever little alcoholism it prevented.
Yep. You absolutely can't stop people from doing drugs, and there will always be people willing to supply those drugs. The more difficult you make it for suppliers and dealers, the higher the profit margins become, which leads to a corresponding rise in violence as various interests fight for control of the market. I think that the best way to get rid of many of the problems associated with drugs is full on alcohol style legalization - the black markets would dry up overnight if people could simply go to a dispensary to get what they want.

Thank you Doctor, at least you did look into the Hopper Bug mechanical gears.
To answer you question,“why did he allow for the gear system to molt away and NOT regrow?”
A damaged gear in a juvenile Hopper Bug could be replaced during the next molting. But with an Adult Hopper Bug there’s no mechanics around with spare gears and no replacements from molting.
A broken gear means doom for the adult bug. If the adults didn’t lose the mechanical gears. A bug shop with mechanics would need to be designed and built.
Be careful Doc or you will find yourself in that trap. If it’s too complex and mechanical by nature, then evolution did it.
Now my questions for you. As a species how would the Hopper Bug juvenile know it’s species is diminishing? And a set of mechanical gears would be needed to continue the species? Other insects and bugs don’t have toothed mechanical gears like found on an old analog clock.
"WEAK" argument pops, if anything breaks on the adult it means doom, from its digestive components, its lungs, heart, anything at all.

The juveniles didn't KNOW anything, they are incapable a reasoning, the processes of evolution, very slowly over a very long period of time, experiments with ways to make the species more adaptable to it environment. Like this:

You find an colony of ants, you spray the nest with insecticides, almost all of the ants die, but just maybe a few survive. The ones that survive had a very slight resistance to the insecticide, they didn't KNOW this, but it did pass on it's genes to the next generation of ants, these ants also had the resistance to the insecticide. The rate at which ants reproduce is very rapid so you can see how this resistance is rapidly passed on the future generations. Once again the hopper bugs, like the ants didn't KNOW, it was just the process of evolution doing what it does to promote adaptation and in the end survival.

You may not agree with the good Doctor.
But he is a free man to hold and express his views.
We may not agree with him but that’s freedom.
And you're absolutely correct.

Right up to the point where your right to your opinion infringes on someone else's right to his/her own life.

Right there, you're apt to meet gunfire - and guess what? A Bible will NOT stop a bullet - unless your opponent is silly enough to shoot you in the Bible.
