    The study I linked to was 25 hetero and 20 homosexuals of each gender, and does not provide a number of "matches" I guess would be the best word for it. I am hopeful that there is a statically meaningful number of "matches", or this study should never have been published. {i]New Scientist[/i] is well regarded and I doubt the article would have been published if the results where not statistically meaningful. Take that for what it is worth.
    If it were not the age of misinformation that it is, I would take the study at face value, but what with opinions and bias even in science, I simply cannot.

    What's your view on homosexuality then? Born with? Choice? Etc? And what say you of these studies?

    That is why I brought up New Scientist's reputation. At some point you have to start believing something, or you can gain no new knowledge. If we dismiss everything, we will never learn.

    Reputations are great, especially when people use them to further their agendas. I'm trying to be receptive, I'm researching this now, but I just don't want to just change my personal opinion because I saw a few questionable statistics online. True I'd be more liekly to believe a similar experiment that favored my mode of thinking, but that's just my initial reaction. I'll need to see some arguments against this, check their validity too, and then hopefully I'll feel educated enough to weight on the situation. 100 people isn't my idea of decent sample to compare to the entire population, there could be other factors involved in those similarities and differences, like geography. My skepticism comes from some studies regarding the size and shape of violent criminal's brains. They performed the study within a prison on violent and non-violent offenders. While they found some correlations, it doesn't account for the people who were outside that prison that were not tested and measured. I'm really trying to quadruple check everything these days.
