Are you going to say that neither Tim nor Sara are family now or justify it in some way?

    That's an interesting twist? All I can say is.. Huh? Answer me first, that would be the considerate thing to do.

    I wonder what, if not SOTF, and natural selection, is at play that is the root of our sexual inclinations at all? What is contained within our genes that gives us the desire to procreate at all? Could Darwin be wrong?

    Well, all things being equal, that's a debateable opinion, and we've done it many times. But something needs a distinction in your statement. You said "two" parents. If one has no biological connection to a child are they a parent in the truest sense. They may be parent figures, even identifies as such by the child, but they are not a parent.

    Actually the evidence shows that a lesbian couple are better parents than your typical hetero couple.

    Because you said
    Why would i waste time refuting something that is MEANINGLESS to the dabate at hand and doesnt change it at all? LMAO
    In other words you're avoiding my central theme. You're all claiming that there are tons of different families, and although that may be true, as far as nature is concerned there is only one type of family that matters in evolutionary terms, and there is very strong evidence that, if the mechanism for evolution holds true, there should be laid a clear distinction as to the viability of such an familial order of things.

    Nut shell.. All things being equal, heterosexual families are best suited to perfom this function.. Evolutionariliy speaking of course..

    No, no it doesn't suggest that. What the "evidence" does suggest is that rich lesbian parents are as good as the average heterosexual parent. Now, the "average" heterosexual parents is made up from samples from all walks of life.. Not very fair is it? Statistics are wonderful things..
