No, that is not what I'm implying. That's quite clearly impossible without special tools :p

It's obvious we exist. We all came into existance. The beginnings can't be proved. However,all we can go by is remaining evidence. As it is seen, the galaxies are moving outward. That means it was all closer as with any explosion would expel matter away from the source. Difficult to believe that either matter or spirits just always existed. Yet here we are. I see both science and religion as unsatisfactory to how it all began. At least science shows some evidence. If this matter were in a court of law,we all know the importance of evidence over simply believing a person by hearsay.

We already have one. It's called "marriage". We just have to get the USSC to overturn the laws in those states where they still discriminate on the basis of sex.

That's kind of the point of hypotheses. They're tested to be disproved.

Evolution is the framework theory of all biological sciences. It has never been disproved, not once.

In layman's terms, evolution is fact.

In which case no need for marriage. It's superfluous and anyone who wants a legal partner can have a civil union. Those who prefer the religious traditions of marriage can be married by their church, but the union will not be legally recognized by the state. Only their religion.
Otherwise if we don't get rid of marriage then the only other option to ensure that rights remain equal for all is to allow gays to legally get married.
<quoted text>
How about the state minds its own business when it comes to sexual relationships? The churches too.
<quoted text>
Hmm. Kinda see good and bad points here. But it's tangential.
<quoted text>
No need for "behaviour modification" if everyone has equal rights. But I thought behaviour modification required the use of tin foil hats. Or was that to protect ourselves against it? Meh, I can't keep track.
Behavior modification is a psychology term that sounds slightly more polite than Pavlovian conditioning.

At least in the U.S. psychologists don't have much of any credibility anymore. They're just tools of the State for washing their hands of problems with phoney credibility. Nobody pays a psychiatrist for help anymore. They don't stay ahead of the problems in our culture. Political Correctness pretty much made them toy action figures.

Just so you should know, I have a different level of consciousness. I don't feel the need to share that with you because it would be a waste of time. You wouldn't believe any of it. poof!

WE don't have to do doodley!

The Supreme Court doesn't have to do anything either....but you're going to keep on quoting your legal precedent about interracial marriage. There's a Constitutional amendment forbidding discrimination based on race. The Virginia law allowed the State to perform marriages but denied marriage to couples based on race. That is clearly illegal.

There's no amendment regarding sexual preference. There is no "right" and your example is not any kind of legal precedent. AND you still think that the Supreme Court can take off on their own and extrapolate what is or isn't fair, based on your world view.

If some nutjob decided that they cannot be happy unless they can engage in marital bliss with Fido, they don't have a "right" to do so. The State does not have to oblige the nutjob and the public does not have to indulge his or her subjective world view on the subject.

That's the law. It's not about rights until Congress makes a LAW regarding rights.

.....but you're going to go the vigilante way anyway. Do it! You WILL do it! You don't have to have consensus. You're a PROUD, manly man who scoffs at consensus, aren't you? DRIVE ON!:D

OK, but you can talk about it all day, but not show anything tangible that would demonstrate it.

There are things that I feel I know about our culture that most people hide their heads in the sand about. In case you haven't noticed, I tend to set people up to act out their denial because saying so in advance won't do anything. Either way, most people just get annoyed but certainly don't give up their prejudices.

What can "God" do that simple logic can't do? And if you can't share it, why do you try? I'd have to admit, that sounds like the average attempt to get attention.

Just so you should know, I believe you. But not in the direction that you think.
