Also, I laid out three points of rebuttal. You responded with more silliness. So, talk to me about rational until you make a rational case or even a rational response.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
First off is there a point to the underscores at the end of each line? Is it the result of your computer, or browser or whatever device you are using?
A lot of times I can make out what a person means. This one I can't. I believe that somewhere in the bolded area is where there are missing or wrong words.And I'll agree, if nature ever reveals a necessary or even beneficial homosexual contribution to the species_
Not true, or at least not entirely. First many homosexuals contribute to the gene pool, either directly, by being willing to engage in a physical activity that holds no attraction for them, or indirectly thorough IVO and other methods (the turkey baster method has been known to work ). Additionally, your argument would indicate that a sterile person is inconsequential as well as an individual who does not contribute to the gene pool. I think you might want to be a little more specific on those last two words as a person's status of consequential or inconsequential is actually irrelavant to whether or not the do or can contribute to the gene pool.Homosexuals contribute nothing to the gene pool__they're born, they live, they die; they're inconsequential_
Correction: Sex has a function for the reproduction and continuation of a species. Sex also has a function, in some species other than humans as well, as a pleasure activity. Neither function is dependant upon the other.Sex is a biological function of evolution for the purpose of reproduction and continuation of a species_
Hardly. There are plenty of homosexuals who raise children, and who even have children with members of the opposite gender in order to ....well, have children. Neither parent has a sexual attraction to the other.A sexual attraction between a male and a female of child bearing age and same species is required_
None that are noted by the mental health professionals and a majority of scientest in various fields related to this have noted otherwise.All sexual attractions other than that is a biological abnormality, most likely due to a psychological disorder_
In case you hadn't noticed, I've been basing "normal" on scientific, evolutionary and biological realities_
And we're right back to both agreeing on a statement, even while applying it in opposite directions.Reality doesn't care what you or I want, it is what nature and evolution has perfected over millions of years_
And regardless how badly we want that reality to conform to our good intentions, it simply isn't going to comply_
Now, if genetics were as direct as one gene for each trait, then I would agree with you. The Gay Gene would have too little evolutionary pressure ensuring it's propagation. But genetics are rarely that straight forward. It's not at all impossible that homosexuality is tied to some other gene that is beneficial.
For example: The most well accepted current research shows a very strong correlation between high testosterone levels in women (women have testosterone, just not very much of it) and their likelihood of having a gay son. The trick to it is that the same gene that causes the higher likelihood of having a gay son also causes them to be more likely to reproduce, and to reproduce more. If the gene causes, for example, a woman to have a 25% higher chance of having a gay son, but also causes her to have 30% more children, then the gene is beneficial and is selected for.
I don't know if that's the cause, or one of the causes, or completely wrong, but it's a good demonstration of how a trait like homosexuality, which has a steep evolutionary cost, may yet be selected for because it is associated with another trait that offsets the evolutionary cost.
Those who argue that its not genetic so therefore it must be a choice miss important cases like people who have down syndrome. Down syndrome has been shown to not be heritable. I think homosexuality is Environmental ( hormonal disbalances, lack of essence nutrient and minerals, stress in utero). Though they are not to blame....
