Then why don't you actually provide the evidence instead of ignoring the requests for it? Where is this "strong" evidence?

Biologically there can be asexuals, and the trait is not isolated but is likely genetic. I made no assertions regarding how or why, but I am asexual. Meh, I fail to see how the why or how is important to a layperson such as yourself.
I don't agree that asexuality is a "sexual" orientation. That's an oxymoron. People who do not engage in sexual activity are not asexuals. They probably have a disability or disorder such as ED, or psychological condition such as autism or whatnot, that causes them to be, it's not a sexual orientation, it's not a gender. It's a made up concept.

Evolution like i said actually means change or metamorphosis, but evolution from non-human to human, is a farce...
So you're saying that all the fossils and DNA is part of some grand conspiracy?

You are insane.

You keep on saying that.

It keeps on being untrue.

Maybe we can cut through some of the fog here: who TOLD you that the "evidence of God" was all of that?

<quoted text>Next? archaeology has confirmed? Humans have ways of making everything seem real.A few thousand years of props and story telling, rewriting, editing sure makes a story seem real. CI think, religion is a business. The Pope is living the high life. It all started with an advanced alien being with a sense of humor. He wanted to see how far the "Ascension" would go with the simple minded humans. Bingo! It turned into the "Bible". Add, pictures, stories of fantasy, fables of many and its history. Not real, just a story made real by its believers.Let us know when this God character becomes real.
Do you understand the meaning of Theology?
The bible is an historical source of truth. Archaeology has confirmed many places recorded by the bible that people thought, never existed.
The Dead sea scrolls, and many other discoveries have put the bible above many other historical books. Be wise!!!

Cybele, why are you so concerned with other people's sexuality? Unless they are involved with unwilling partners, children, or animals it is not really any of your business.

Then what do you call those of us who have no desire or sexual attraction?

Asexual is what scientists call it, often it's paired with an aversion to sex of any sort. It is a genetic trait, a fallback to the original traits in the animal kingdom since asexual reproduction is the most common and oldest form or reproduction the trait is ingrained into every animal's DNA, and it's not difficult to comprehend why it would appear in even species that reproduce sexually. Your denial of these facts demonstrates that you are a pervert who just wants everyone to be like you, so much that you are willing to deny reality itself.

God is one and it was the Hebrews that discovered first before any tribes or nation.
Get some learning about this God.

Based on your assertion here, Harry Potter is real, so is Spiderman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Your assertion also includes Cthulhu being real, as well as every other god ever written about. So why do you deny the existence of Zeus?

It doesn't mean that there cannot be asexual humans, only that we cannot produce in such a way. You need to stop thinking everything is how you want it to be and start learning something for a change. Remaining as ignorant as you are is not an endearing quality, it's pathetic.
Do you find anybody attractive? If you do, then you are not asexual.

You are in complete denial. What's up with the long hair, the dark red lip stick and black top? You surely know how to make yourself look attractive. lol

Nope. I don't find them attractive sexually at all, and the notion of such an activity makes me ill. I am, however, attracted to intellect. If a person can entertain me with intelligent conversation I enjoy having coffee with them at the local coffee shop, if not, I have no interest in knowing them offline at all.

Doesn't work like that, until you show evidence supporting the existence of your god it is sane to dismiss your assertion of there being a god as nothing more than wishful thinking or mythology.

I repeat, the universe or the earth in addition to other planetary bodies plus the solar system, are a sure indication that a creator is at work if not, how do they came up?
What brought them into existence?

You have that backwards. It is up to you to prove the existence of a god. Logic is not one of your strong points, is it?

I don't care what people's sexual preference is. He/she just keeps telling me I don't have evidence for my 'assertion' that he/she is not female.
