Also, in response to your other posting on pedophiles. They would not be covered under the act. Even though groups like NAMBLA are around pedophilia is not considered an orientation, it is considered a disorder. In saying that I feel like your response to that would be "well then homosexuals have a disorder too, they're sick" But the fact of the matter is whether or not you think that homosexuals are not frowned upon because it is not illegal. Being a homosexual has nothing to do with the acts you preform. Its what you are physically/mentally attracted to.

Apologies for the double post.
But I think my point stands. Homosexuality is frowned on by people because they consider it to be a degradation of morals, and thats fine if thats what you believe. But seeing how this is the United States there is a reasonable expectation of the separation of church and state. So even though it may be your personal belief. It is delivered via churches (usually) in which case the state has no responsibility to uphold what people as individuals see as moral.

So are we no different than the animals? Are you saying you have no control over what you think/physically feel? I think you contradict yourself about " the acts you preform". What about an animals behavior? Are those acts preconceived, or are they instinct? Animals don't "think" the way we do, that is why they are animals and not humans. And what about those homosexual acts by animals. Do they serve any purpose? Not in the animal kingdom: animals don't seek out "feel good" sexual responses, they act out of instinct and sex for them is propogation of the species. Homosexual animal acts do nothing for propogation. They are mistakes in interpretation of the mating signals...

Just because you may have formulated your origin does not mean you are not an animal. Humans are animals, just highly evolved ones. I dont believe I have contradicted myself at all. Even if other animals cannot form conceptual thought that doesnt mean they dont make choices.

And you are correct in your statement, you do not have an immediate choice in what you think or feel. For one- you are always thinking, the brain is very complex and suppression of thought is different from being flat out in control over it. Two- while you may be able to control some feelings by not physically expressing them that doesnt mean they dont happen. When someone is being passive aggressive they may be calm and collected but that doesnt mean they arnt angry or upset. The same goes for when a loved one passes away.

The ability of conceptual thought doesnt really "make" us human. There are plenty of human beings devoid of this already. What makes us human is a mix of things. Plenty of animals work in their own societies. They have habits and practices just like humans. If I had to pin point it for your liking I'd say culture is what makes us people, not human, but people.

Plently of animals seek out "feel good" sex. Especially humans hetero or homo. Not all animals have mating signals that are physical. Most are pheramone based anyway. So to assume for one that the animal kingdom is only about procreation is popular...but unreasonable.

In all seriousness though, whether you think its right or wrong, against god, a choice, or programmed at birth. Anomalies in nature are well...natural if thats the way you'd like to look at it. Albinos are natural anomalies, but they still have rights as people.

Humanity has been 'abusing nature' ever since we discovered how to create fire. So lets destroy everything in this world that is unnatural, including our buildings, our books, and anything else we have created. Oh yeah, and the bible isn't a natural thing either, its gotta go.

What do you have against pedophilia? Are you some kind of bigot? It was very acceptable in Greece and Rome. Why can't you be tolerant of other peoples lifestyles?

Since you are part of humanity do you admit to abusing nature yourself?

Or are you simply the product of time plus matter plus chance? The accidential result of amino acids coming together in some kind of primordial soup which would mean, when taken to it's logical conclusion, you have no mre value than a dead cockroach.
