Thanks. I'm also disgusted by willfully ignorant people that do their best to become and remain stupid.<
.. HFY tries to appeal to evidence through logical argument. She is trained as an anthropologist, skilled in understanding and comparing cultures, armed with knowledge about widespread diversity. She excels in biology, genetics and evolutionary theory ..
.. despite all her knowledge, all her posts, again and again, from a myriad of angles, some Christians maintain their antagonistic attitude about evolution and homosexuality only by systematically ignoring the evidence she presents ..
.. the harsh condemnation of homosexuality and rejection of evolution is not a reasonable or coherent position ..

.. there it is! Another SKOM moment ..
.. I've already found common ground with some Christians on this thread ..
.. because it's fun? Do you know if Satan has a surname ??..
.. another SKOM moment ..
.. is it ever too early to talk about sex? Oppps, maybe I should ask Catcher that question ..
.. daily? Another SKOM moment, huh ??..
.. still another SKOM moment. My original post had nothing to do with HFY ..
.. the state of affairs on this thread raises troubling questions about the place of religion in a pluralistic society. How do we decide what is good? Are some beliefs true, just because someone believes them, and everybody else's beliefs, therefore, false ??
.. if opinions conflict, how does society decide what is good? Through cold calculated logic, scientific evidence and compassion or some church's dogma ??..
.. is it late enough to talk about sex ??..
You can identify them by their lack of argument, their appeal to dogma, their "well I wrote it down so it must be true" statements. And, in Skom's case, his open dissembling.
It's all quite unbecoming.
Yes, we can talk about sex now :)
But...hey...why just talk???
