CC -Now, you're showing, CC. Ok, so if behavior, I assume you mean anal sex that causes HIV, and also too, the practice of unsafe sex; then my analysis is still 100% accurate. The "state of being" is only to identify the category. Why analyze data that places a conclusion on a group of people, if you're not going to identify who the group of people are?Completely false. It is behavior that causes HIV. Not a state of being
Thanks for pointing out the blatantly obvious?Not a state of being. One can be heterosexual or homosexual and be completely abstinent... and have 0% chance of contracting HIV from their sexual orientation. Orientation is irrelevant. Behavior IS relevant.
No.. I mean you're sampling a large sample to make a more narrow conclusion. You cannot take a single narrow experience, and apply it to a broad sample. That's ridiculous!True to some extent... if you are meaning that an individual experience can define the outcome
Umm.. Yeah, this is what I have been saying?Correct. ALL the data... not just the data that helps your position
I said -You say -Clearly homosexuals as a group are responsible for more than half the cases of HIV in the USA.Huh?No. Homosexuals, as a group contract more than half the cases of HIV. Your wording is incorrect
No.. Um, no it doesn't, not in the slightest!No. This statement contradicts the statement preceding it
I never made this conclusion, you just did! However, it also happens to be true according to my analysis; at least statistically.In the statement preceding it, you are discussing unsafe sexual activity... an accurate statement. You then make the leap from behavior to sexual orientation, which, as you have shown, is only a correlation, not a causation. In order to prove your premise, you would have to show that being gay CAUSES unsafe sex.
I don't need to show causation. I never made that claim. However, I also proved it in my analysis, you just missed it again for the first time.I don't think we need a thread. Your position has been debunked, logically. Unless you can show causation, you have nothing
And I would add that you can't be asking me if I made the claim that homosexuality causes HIV? No one knows what causes HIV, if I did , I'd be rich beyond belief.
