Born Gay Hoax: Studies Debunked « Conservative Colloquium
"The “Gay” Twins Study
This discredited study was conducted by Michael Bailey, a heterosexual, and Richard Pillard, a same-gender sex activist. In December of 1991, these two researchers published a study of twins, and they claimed to have demonstrated a genetic cause for being “gay.” One same-gender sex magazine, The Advocate, wrote, “They found that 52% of identical twin brothers of gay men were gay, as were 22% of fraternal twin brothers, and 11% of genetically unrelated brothers.” (The Advocate, 3-24-92, p.61)
There are several problems with this study. First, (assuming that the study was legitimate) in order to show that homosexuality is genetic (in identical twins) if one twin is “gay” the other should also be “gay” 100% of the time. This study, however, did not produce results that demonstrate this. Despite this fact, same-gender sex activists continue to report that this study is proof that people are born “gay.”
Second, genetics tells us that if one fraternal (non-identical) twin is “gay,” then other non-twin brothers should also be “gay” exactly as often as are the non-identical twin brothers, since non-identical twins and regular brothers are equally genetically different. In this study 22% of fraternal twins both claimed to be “gay.” Therefore, their non-twin brothers should also have claimed to be “gay” 22% of the time. If the non-twin percentage were lower, some environmental cause must have been at fault, not a hidden “gay” gene. But, this was not the case. Yet readers could not have known that this was not the case because Bailey and Pillard left the numbers for the genetically related non-twin brothers out of their original report. Why? If this data had supported their agenda would they not have included it as well?
According to The Advocate, the researcher’s withheld important information about the non-twin brothers in their study, the article states: “According to Bailey, the released data did not include another group in the study: 142 genetically related non-twin brothers of gay men, of whom only 13—or about 9% were also gay.” (The Advocate 3-24-92, p.61; Michael Bailey is not a homosexual)"
Identical Twins' DNA Varies | LiveScience
Sorry, but identical twins DNA varies so it is not beyond the realm of one being gay while the other is not.
*sigh* I am pointing out the inconsistencies in you argument, not making an argument of my own. Your use of "natural" for human homosexuality and your use of "unnatural" regarding other human actions do not jibe.
I'm trying to get you to realize that the funky definition of "natural" that includes skyscrapers is YOUR definition as you have applied it to homosexuality.***

Oh, and the animal kingdom has an estimated 3 million to 30 million species in it. 1500 might sound like a lot, but 0.05% - 0.005% surely doesn't.

Yes, vegetarianism is unnatural; humans are omnivores.
