you are lecturing me on being EDUCATED when you are lumping insects and reptiles and PLANTS in with humanity! LOL
So you think humans are the only species on the planet? Really? Hate to burst your bubble of stupidity (well, not really) but there's approximately 1,000,000 species of insects, over 300,000 species of plants and over 9,000 species of reptiles.

Sorry, you intellectually retarded hag, you're the one confused about sex and species, not me. You said "male and female species", not male and female sexes nor anything about the human species specifically. There are over 300,00 species of plants. There's only one human species.

If you can't learn to communicate with adults, perhaps your days would be better spent with your intellectual equals in grade school.

if you think it doesn't require a man and a woman to make a baby then how about you dazzle the world with your knowledge of how one can make a person without a sperm and an egg.
But you said nothing about humans, only "male and female species". Many species have males and females and not all of them require both sexes in order to reproduce.

By suddenly shifting the discussion to humans, you merely prove my point that you're unable to articulate your thoughts clearly and concisely for others.

lets talk about your love of evolution for a moment....
maybe you can clear up the big mystery.
you people who think we all came from animals, explain this.
if evolution is the process of one species CHANGING into something different........then by all logic, if we came from tadpoles, wiggly worms, or primates billions of years ago, shouldn't there be NO MORE tadpoles or wiggly worms or primates on the planet today?
how can evolution change things and still leave them behind at the same time?
you can't tell a logical person a billion years ago people evolved from primates .....and there still be primates today.
you can't tell people they came from a tadpole if the planet is still covered in tadpoles today.
evolution would cause extinction of that which it was changing.
DUH.
AND another reality, is that if evolution takes billions of years to complete, then species would die off before they could be changed.......
so your si-fy, science, secular, and heathenistic claims are nothing more than a false religion called atheism.
Who was talking about evolution? Seriously, can you not follow a single train of thought? No wonder every discussion with an uneducable fool like you turns into a train wreck.

well my suggestion to you, would be to take a trip to the farm sometime mr.intelligence.
see if you can find two roosters walking arm and arm,
two cows ... or two bulls mating.
see if you can produce a kitten from two dogs.

you are so DESPIRATE to justify homosexuality that you will say and do anything no matter how ridiculous it is.

fact is, in the begining GOD CREATED THEM MALE AND FEMALE.

and you can argue that point all you like, won't change it.

a recent study from the New Family Structure (NFSS) did a study of adults ranging from the age of 18 to 39 who were raised in gay households. compaired against
co-habiting adults
single straight parents
and adoptive straight parents

study showed that children raised in SS homes had lower incomes, poorer health both mental and physcial.

If it's the study that was just released, you are in a most unfortunate position: You just defended a study which has been attacked for *provable* errors and problems. In fact, numerous sources online *have already begun to detail* the scientific problems with that study.

Thought you weren't interested in what science said, by the way. Seems you are *SUDDENLY INTERESTED AS HELL* when it benefits *YOUR VIEWPOINT*. How convenient.

Your absolutely correct in your assumption. Any fool with a modicum of grey matter can see that this is attempt to put a smiley face on a 'squalid' and deviant practise. Every thing about this so called "gay life style" is all about their sexuality, prancing around with sexual connotations during "gay pride days." Not to mention a recent ordinance passed in the neo-Sodom&Gomorrah,(San Fransicko) which allows these people to walk around naked in public, including going to restaurants and any other public place -- exposing themselves to children in their everyday activities as well. One exception however, they have to have their butts covered with a 'mud-flap'(towel) for sanitary reasons -- how thoughtful. <Grimace>

Not to sound repetitious.....

"That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature, and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error. And just as they did not approve of holding God in accurate knowledge, God gave them up to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting." Romans 1: 26-29

God is a God of 'absolutes,' no shades of grey, political correctness or affirmative action. So if one is looking for affirmation of ones deviant life style, you won't find it here.....except for forgiveness and redemption for PAST sins through Jesus Christ.

These folks often try to use the word 'Interpretation' as a distraction or smoke screen, which on its face is a canard. Any normal twelve year old could get the meaning from God's inspired words in Romans 1: 26-29.

Passing Through, lets discuss the tactics being used by gays........

on Friday June 8 thousands across the country celebrated 'stand up for religious freedom' day.
a homosexual advocacy group in Dayton Ohio complained and the police made all the rally attenders lay their signs on the groud.......violating their free speech, all because a homosexual activist wanted to surpress their right of free speech.

this rally was not about gays
but about religious freedom and the opposition to the obama health care act.
but the gays has to make it about them and cause trouble (as always) for the people peacefully protesting.

this stuff happens ALL the time.

Please spare us your circular reasoning. Your post is a textbook example of fallacious reasoning:

Bill: "God must exist."
Jill: "How do you know."
Bill: "Because the Bible says so."
Jill: "Why should I believe the Bible?"
Bill: "Because the Bible was written by God."

This sort of "reasoning" is fallacious because simply assuming that the conclusion is true (directly or indirectly) in the premises does not constitute evidence for that conclusion. Obviously, simply assuming a claim is true does not serve as evidence for that claim. This is especially clear in particularly blatant cases: "X is true. The evidence for this claim is that X is true."

You are a dope.

Many English language words have multiples meanings, some of which are specific to various academic disciplines like science or math. Were you not aware of this fact? Have you never opened a dictionary?

the·o·ry

noun, plural the·o·ries.

1. a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that can be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena: Einstein's theory of relativity. Synonyms: principle, law, doctrine.

2. a proposed explanation whose status is still conjectural and subject to experimentation, in contrast to well-established propositions that are regarded as reporting matters of actual fact. Synonyms: idea, notion hypothesis, postulate. Antonyms: practice, verification, corroboration, substantiation.

3. Mathematics . a body of principles, theorems, or the like, belonging to one subject: number theory.

4. the branch of a science or art that deals with its principles or methods, as distinguished from its practice: music theory.

5. a particular conception or view of something to be done or of the method of doing it; a system of rules or principles: conflicting theories of how children best learn to read.
