You understand that homosexuality is simply one sexual identity from Western culture, right?
People of the same sex can only marry but can never procreate or reproduce?

Can adults of the sex reproduce or procreate?
I guarantee to you, sir, that any adults who do reproduce have, in fact, a sex.

You can't really have life without both matter and energy.

Again it depends on how you define life.
There is energy that creates life that takes the form of a matter and energy that creates life that takes the form of something we don't call matter. lol
Life as we define it is just in the physical form that breathes. But I'm going beyond this definition.
Uh...no, no, this one's a universal. There is no life that does not have both matter and energy.

We can do a quick test, if you like. For example, take spinach. Check, matter. Check, energy.

Smaller, you say? Ok, take bacteria. Check, matter. Check, energy.

Smaller? Ok, take viruses. Check, matter. Check, energy.

Smaller still? Ok, prions. Check, matter. Check energy.

That's about as small as we can get for life.

You want to demonstrate there is life without matter or without energy? Sure...give us some evidence, please.

Hidingfromyou, this question is for you.
As long as they have functioning genitalia, they can reproduce. I can't imagine why you would think they cannot.

Let me just jump ahead a bit...Yes, almost all primate species have demonstrated same sex sexual behavior, along with many, many other species.

Why not?

Do you think that procreation only happens within the boundaries of marriage?]

May I ask you a side question?

Do you know what a gene is?

But I did mention that it depends on how you define "life"
a battery has life, a car engine has life, an equipment has life, etc.
Everything in the universe has life. A star dies and a star is born. But we don't define this life in biological terms.
A battery does not have life. A car engine does not have life.

Unless you want to redefine life in a way that makes our current definitions utterly useless.

In that case, all you are doing is replacing the word "life" with the word "stuff."

Sure...batteries have stuff. Engines have stuff, just like turtles have stuff. So do eggs and ipods and tables. All these things...lots of stuff.

See? Suddenly you've made the word life as useless as the word stuff. Now we can't do anything with it.

When you play these silly word games, you remove the ability of science to understand the universe around us. Biology ceases to have meaning. That's why we call these kind of logical games "sophistry" or "pedantry." They result in an inability to understand the phenomena around us - they reduce our ability to produce new knowledge and are therefore damaging.

Build knowledge, don't attack it.

There is only one way to have sex and not sin. The marriage bed is the only place that is not unclean or dirty and defiled in the sight of God.

To be current is to realize that Darwin was mistaken in his claim of branching from simple to more complex in all species of living organisms. Creation happened.

I am glad those sexual education classes are finally paying off. But that is not what you asked.

You can tell yourself that as much as you like.

You will still be wrong every time that you say it.

Nah. God's first command was "go forth and multiply." Not "go get married and have a bit of missionary."

And, anyways, your deity doesn't exist except in your head. You're a slave to an imagined reality. Likewise, sin is all in your head.

Have lots of sex, masturbate and enjoy life.
