    Are you claiming that "traditional" monogamy is universal?

    The tradition you are referring to was developed when average lifespan was 40 years.

    I'm not sure it would have developed the same if average lifespan had been in the 60s.

    Various forms of polygamy/polyandry/group marriages have functioned well at different places and times in different cultures.

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Neither. Its called speaking up for what you believe in, which makes the person honest, if anything.

    It depends. Our numerical system is set in place by an international scientific and mathematical committee, if the members of that committee were apart of that billion people, they could vote on the change it. I for one have always supported adding a new number between 6 and seven called sel.

    But I know what you're getting on, and it's irrelevant to what I said. I was just pointing out that just because a large number of people believe something and/or have for a long time does not make it right. That's a logical fallacy, appeal to majority and appeal to tradition, respectively.

    The concept of "traditional marriage" is so vacuous and absurd it renders this question moot.

    So marriage is an equation?

    If someone states he's for "tradiional" marriage, it means he can't spell.
