Anyways, funny how you brought up the 'crow.' I used the term 'when the crow flies' on one of my poetry called "Temptation."
I know there's a connection here somehow. lol. Resist!
can we be friends? ;-)

How could a creature be made in God's image if "God is a spirit"?

Well, I haven't googled it, but I've posted a few items in agreement, and that is why I consider a good portion of the politics of this debate to be about urban vs. rural culture.
Sorry, I must have missed that.
When I skipped over all the name calling, I must have skipped over something with content in it.

Name calling? On my part? Remind me of anything there. What I remember is suggesting that medical conditions exist or that politics is at work. I don't recall much in the way of name calling.

I'll set a place at the table for pathos in a debate. Are you getting pulled into your own prejudicial presumptions, just maybe a bit?

If we define the word in general terms maybe it means a representation or reflection since God is a spirit, but he has hands that were seen by men and though they were cloudlike he created and directed with them, as far as I know.

When we're discussing animals, it's better not to use "homosexuality" or "bisexuality" and just talk about sexual behavior. I prefer the terms "same sex sexual behavior" or "opposite sex sexual behavior" though primatologists use the technical jargon of isosexual and contrasexual.

Homosexuality, heteroseuxality and bisexuality are sexual identities of Western culture. Not really applicable to animals - and not always to non-Westerners who do not identify with the Western cultural constructions of identity and sexuality.
Non heterosexuals only exist in a western cultural perspective? Hmmmm. If you say so.

Must be why our birth rates are so much lower.

Why not just say the soul is the part that was created in this alleged God's image?

Who brought him into existence? Who was God's creator? Did he poof himself into being too? Something had to come before...

Uh...is the above a joke?
Pretty much everything I post is sarcastic in tone... but no.

Laws against homosexuality are not really aimed at them. Their real intent is to discourage the far larger latent bisexual community from exploring their true sexual identities.

The government has little interest in what gay people do.

As dumb as that theory is any chimp would have more than enough reasoning capacity to see the holes in it. The Bible was written down by semi-literate wandering nomads in the Middle Eastern desert over many centuries.

To imagine it even has a coherent message to it is...

Massive genetic diversity is produced when a population is growing at a rapid rate.

You are more specifically describing the strengthened effects of genetic drift and natural selection on small populations - but genetic diversity itself grows fastest in populations that are under high growth. Genetic diversity is lost most quickly in small populations, though you can have high rates of evolution in these populations because genetic drift becomes stronger and, under severe environmental conditions, natural selection is likewise severe.
My point was that genetic diversity leads to stagnation. A species will never evolve and improve upon itself unless it is through isolated small populations. That is how evolution works and how new species come into being.

After one of those mass extinction events there is always a scramble where the surviving species compete to fill all the new ecological niches. Evolution is intelligent design. Nothing random about it. It is all about nature modifying creatures to match the environmental conditions.

Don't you think the creatures are given the tools withn their own makeup to change if needed to match the outlined niche?

Well, I could have said it that way but it wouldn't generate sympathy! We all were kids once. I can respect the job of raising them. Throw in the tax and insurance breaks and I'm ready to toss out the fifth commandment.
Frankly i.m.o. the fifth one means to recall were you came from, tribal affiliation, even if by adoption.
'Do unto others as they do unto you'...in mind.
So if parents are a royal pain there is no need to be all respectfull.
Especially given such practices of kids heaving to work of the debts their parents incurred.
According to Roman law this was however only allowed thrice.

Reminds me of the Finnish system where trafic fines can be passed on to the next generation. To be paid when they reach official adulthood. Leaving some kids with staggering debts when they should frankly start building their own future.
