    I expressed my beliefs and explained my logic. You, however, state your beliefs as fact and cite studies which at best, provide directional indications. Nothing is proven in those studies, but it supports your point of view, so that is good enough for you. I don't mock your beliefs. I mock your raising your beliefs to the level of fact and then pointing out that I don't have evidence. I also make no appeal for others to accept my beliefs.

    The same is true for my belief that there exists life on other planets. There is some suggestion that there are millions of planets where the environmental conditions are similar to Earth. On that basis, I believe that there is life on at least 1 of those other planets. I'm sure you find my position on life on other plants to be unreasonable as well. That is fine too.

    I'll engage you no further.
    Your equivocating. A mouse is defined as a timid person. When I say that mice are furry animals that live outside, and you say that is not true because some mice are actually people, you would be equivocating by conflating definitions. That is exactly what you are doing with the term homosexual.

    Your logic is fallacious. I cite studies, you cite nothing. You cite planets that have life conditions similar to earth. That is perfectly reasonable. With regards to homosexuality, you have cited nothing. So you have no basis in your reasoning other than bias. Please, show me studies that point in the direction that homosexuality is a choice. Why is this so hard for you to do? Is it because no such studies exist?

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    For some its a choice and for some it may not be. But whats the difference? Does a pedophile have a choice? Does a kleptomaniac?

    It's as much of a choice as heterosexuality.

    If anyone 'thinks' that they can prove that it is they need to post some links to credible supporting data.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    I selected the maybe more as a default than my real opinion. While I do believe that a majority of those who are of any given orientation (gay, straight or bi) are born that way, either by genetics, variables while in the womb or some combination there of. I also believe, through incidental experiences of my own that not everyone is "hardwired" in this manner and thus can "choose". Now I put that word in quotes because the choice might not always be intended or realized. I guess more to point whenever I hear people discuss whether being gay is something you are born with or choose, that the ultimate line is, is it something that occurs prior to birth or do events afterwards form or even change it later in life. I believe that both are possible. It seems to me that too many people are way to invested in the concept that it can only be one or the other.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    People crack me up over what they believe is and isn't immutable human characteristics. People have no problem with eye color, body sizes, hair color...etc, etc, etc. But it never ceases to amaze me that people deny even the possibility that sexual orientation is simply a mechanism of birth.

    Yes...people "DENY THE POSSIBILITY"...that sexual orientation might well be just another immutable human characteristic.

    After of all of the things we've seen happen in the last 50 years...man...gezzzzzzzzzzz...
