Actually no it would provide evidence of only what type of species I am, and nothing more. Mammals, regardless of gender, have mammary glands. estrogen tends to make them fill with milk, while testosterone tends to counter the effect, however genetically it is possible that the inverse will occur depending on the DNA code. Other kingdoms lack the mammary glands, and therefore none of them can get what we call "breasts" or the slang term "tits." At least, that's what I think you were referring to, or attempting to hint had. Using capital letters and spaces between them confuses what you were asking as a whole.
LOL!

Do you want to be like Jenna Talackova?

Including and some others, but you are all wrong.
Tacitus and Pliny the young mentioned about Christians, that alone proves Jesus existence.

Creativity and sexuality are linked? I think Yes. It starts with role-playing.

Depending on interpretation.
According to the Jews, Isaiah prophesied a Messiah who has yet to come.
According to the Bahai's, Isaiah prophesied not only Jesus, but The Bab and Bahaullah.
According to skeptics like me, Isaiah was about as reliable as a ouija board.
If the name Jesus and the title Son of God appeared anywhere in the Old Testament, I would be more impressed.
That does'nt really counts because to date in the history no one was like Jesus( no messiah or Immanuel like Jesus).

Unsure of how that works. Roleplaying games are an all ages game, such as Dungeons & Dragons, Shadowrun, Call of Cthulhu (the RPG), and a bunch of others, I own many of the books, collectors' items mostly as I use the PDFs for actual gaming. Many VRPGs exist as well, and I own a lot of those as well, Final Fantasy being one my my favorites, I actually play those ones through. Dragon Warrior is another popular VRPG series.

So tell me, how is creativity actually link to sexuality? If so, does a person who creates "dark" themed art have a "dark" sexuality as well? Also, please present some evidence to demonstrate your assertions so I have something to actually consider.

Oh, never knew her name. Interesting though. I don't pay much attention to the good stories on that subject, I'm more interested in reducing the tragedies those people face. lol

A heart is a difficult thing to kill, I wonder how so many religious nuts do it.

The same Golden Rule that shows up quite a number of religions?
Now point me to the scientific method that incorporates that so that we can denounce Dr. Mengele's experiments on human subjects.
There are ethical limits in pursuing science because we put them there.
I'm just pointing out that the pursuit of truth via science does have an ethical boundary that the foundation of scientific endeavor does not establish. That boundary comes from somewhere else.
And in cultures all over.

I suppose you're trying to inject the Christian God here.

I believe Confucius had his epiphany about 500 years BC...those darn Chinese were pretty advanced

Back in the day, they used to rip 'em out of the victims' chests and show them, still beating, to the congregation.

I'm not sure what they thought they were accomplishing.

3. We don't want human suffering therefore it is unethical.
There, scientific enough for you?
Not even close.

Your reasoning is no better than the religious zealots who believe that Man is made in the image of God and is given a free pass to exploit everything else on the planet.

At one time, some groups of humans were not considered humans. By your rules, they'd be open to any sort of scientific experimentation.

It crops up in a number of places in a number of religions.

Do you care more to attribute the source of a good idea to a particular group more than the idea itself?

I had to look it up too. Seeing the pictures, it is hard for me to argue that she wasn't right.

Assertions but no explanation of them. Why is it "no better?" I stated that something was bad because we didn't like it, how is that any different from any other "rules?"
