You already had to retract the liar comment before. Do you really want to go down this road again, me demanding evidence of my lies and you running away like some 4 year old?
hahhahahahahahaStudies with drosophilia indicate that a gene on the right arm of the third chromosome ironically called "fruitless", determines courtship patterns and sexuality. If there is such a gene in the drosophilia, it is not far fetched to believe that there is a similar compelling genetic factor in human sexuality.
Since 1973, it has been accepted fact that certain compounds found in nature called "endocrine disruptors" play a a huge role in determining gender assignment in fish and other reptiles and also in influencing sexuality in greater cats in the wild. These endocrine disruptors are found in more heavy concentrations in the human food supply due to our use of artificial growth hormones and antibiotics.
I love it when people like you cite this study.
First of all it did not make flies gay.
Since you obviosuly didn't read the study..
Yael Grosjean et al. (1) report that this homosexual - or more accurately bisexual - behavior in fruit flies is controlled by glutamatergic synapse strength, i.e., ambient levels of glutamate in the nervous system. Glutamate is what's known as an "excitatory amino acid." It plays an important role as a neurotransmitter in the brain. Glutamate levels in the fly's nervous system are regulated at least in part by an amino-acid transport protein in the glia, the non-excitatory cells that feed and care for neurons. That transport protein is encoded by the genderblind allele.
Sexual behaviors, and variations thereof, for both fruit flies and mice are strongly influenced by pheromones which in turn trigger specific proteins in the nervous system. However, the mechanisms are quite different: one relies on glutamate levels as influenced by a transport protein and the other by a relatively non-specific calcium permeable ion channel. Kinda complex, isn't it? Suffice it to say that transport proteins and ion channels are different beasts.
The stupidity of this as "evidence" to mammals much less humans would be hysterical if it wasn't so sad.
*hint* Pssst hey jallman. Flies and humans are different species. See flies are part of the insect family. Humans are mammals and now I know this part is a little hard for you to fathom, but there are a few differences between the two that go a little beyond mating practices.
Now on to my personal favorite. The twins studies.
Yes now lets look at the FACTS from your own study.Further, twins studies consistently show a pattern of higher rates of homosexuality in identical twins than in fraternal twins, indicating a genetic factor.
A number of studies have looked at homosexuality in twins, all with similar results. For example, in one study, if one identical twin was gay, the other was also gay 50% of the time. If they were fraternal twins, they were both gay 22% of the time. And if one was adopted, the chances fell to 11%.
Now these numbers are from one study. Other studies have different percentages but the same trend—identical twins are more likely to both be gay as compared to fraternal twins.
This strongly suggests that there is a genetic component—there is something in their genes that makes them more likely to be gay. Genetics, though, isn't everything.
So this bull**** can't even be proven 50% of the time much less the very generous number I set at 60% and this is just twins!
And he even admits TWINS have the EXACT SAME GENETIC MAKEUP!
And isn't it interesting how drastic the number drops off when the TWINS are separated?
Now don't get me wrong, I love a good laugh but these arguments you are making have been destroyed so many times over its hard not to feel sorry for you.
