We have over 7 billion people on earth right now. The largest population the planet has ever seen, and the population is growing exponentially.

According to Fundies (such as yourself),'sexual perversion' is rampant, and "it will pose a negative effects on human population growth".

Do you see ANY logical disconnect here?
Let us be honest. Modernity leads to a liberal outlook and to population decline. From Europe to North America to Japan...

It is only in more traditional societies that population growth is out of control. If not for immigration the USA would gradually depopulate. Nothing wrong with a steady flow of Latin Americans keeping us from oblivion. Only bigots bemoan this fact of life.

Non-verbal consciousness? Thinking in pictures? Pretty much everyone does this from the time they were babies.

(heterostasis?...what?...lol)

Its state of pure awareness, without the chitter chatter of words.

Sounds like a meditative state. When I meditate I see images and experience some sort of sensation. I don't do that very often though. Most of the time, words are involved whether I'm listening, responding, reflecting, reading and writing.

it more of a state where you are mainly focused on consciousness itself, instead of images and so forth...not that anything is to be suppressed...but quite the contrary, it more of a process of mental free flow...

lol...if you want to try something really cool...when you first go to bed and close your eyes, try relaxing your eyes completely without any focused attention, but pay particular attention to the back of your eye lids for about ten minutes or so...

How is it "out of context"? I included all of the relevant portions of your posting.
To have a conversation, one side makes a point, then the other responds, then the other makes a point. When you make more than one point in a single posting, I separate out each point and respond to each one.

No, I use the word "we" because (1) I'm not the only person who supports the legal recognition of same-sex marriage, and (2), in the United States, the majority of adults support the legal recognition of same-sex marriage.
<quoted text>
"Doorstep" polls? You really need to learn how polls are conducted. And Congress and the state legislatures have long lagged behind the majority position. Heck, Alabama didn't get rid of its constitutional amendment against *interracial* marriage until the year 2000.
<quoted text>
Which doesn't prevent the USSC from deciding the Constitutionality of a Federal or state law regarding marriage.

Which government? Obama's administration? Nope. Obama endorses the repeal of DOMA.
<quoted text>
I don't have an "illness". The medical jury is still out about your exhibited homophobia.
No, you are deciding what is relevant and throwing out the rest. That's rude.

Reality alert. Polls don't matter. The vote matters. The Obama administration is not the government. They are the upper level of the Executive branch only. Ever notice how often the public offsets one party in Congress with the other party in the White House? The public understands what kind of pathological criminals the parties are. They're just too fat-a## lazy to fix things.

The Supreme Court can do many things. Congress can do many things if the Supreme Court exceeds their authority. What you fail to accept is that the Congress and the Supreme Court are both dominated by conservatives, but you're going to go on with your personality cult proclamations anyway. You WILL do it! You will OBEY YOUR MASTER!

You have an illness. That's my opinion. The "medical jury" is a nonsensical concept. That's your pathology. Drive on!

Of course that is government's job.
Look at how many nations the USA is bullying around the world. We are in a perpetual state of war as de facto world policemen. Almost always preying on small weak nations with no hope of defending themselves against "the evil empire". We seem to have no problem reigning death down upon them from up above.
From discouraging bigotry to discouraging gun violence to discouraging meth labs to discouraging hard working immigrants from keeping their jobs we act just as much the bully at home. Things like homosexuality and pedophilia also need to be ruthlessly discouraged.
See? You've just invoked the Big Sin! You've implied a link between pedophilia and homosexuality. The men in the black suits will pick you up shortly.

Laws must be enforced, but we have laws against the abuse of criminals too. Those laws have been neglected. Cruel and unusual punishment is becoming the norm. It isn't stopping crime and it's further breaking down the collective moral compass of the country.

No need to preach to me. We need to solve our own problems and stop pretending that we can solve everyone else's. But then again, we WILL just go back to the voting booth, if for some ungodly reason we ever break away from our first person shooter games, and vote for a the local Democrook or Republicon as a duty-minded citizen should.

It really isn't easy to keep myself from just getting in people's faces and saying "Stupid!!!!" over and over again. One just has to accept that doing so is just as stupid, and hope that rational dialog may someday produce results. It begins with information. These fine White citizens of the fatherland keep secrets like a deer caught in the headlights. The rest, well, they're off their nuts!

Not much else to do but put deer food in the road!

And you just proved your ignorance. Anyone who says the phrase "just a theory" or its equivalent, does not know what a scientific theory is.
By the way what evidence do you have that space is infinite? That is not a mistake that scientists will make. Without evidence they will not claim that space is infinite or bounded. In fact that is one question that they are still studying.
SZ what would or does Jesus think of that colorful language? Now, bow thy head and pray for forgiveness.......if you believe in that stuff.

Actually, I only like chocolate in my coffee. But meh, whatever you enjoy doing you can participate in, even when you worship something that doesn't even exist.
But you are correct, every human body is about 20% hollow, oddly enough. Most of your internal chest/abdomen cavaity is air.
Lol...I like chocolate in my coffee too! Heya kitten ;D

"The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness."

When we find something true, we can find comfort in knowing that 100 years and more from now it will still be beautiful.
