    Your use of the word "purpose" and "intended" make your statements untrue from an evolutionary standpoint.

    Exactly. Thank you.

    The more important question is the definition of "abnormal". Once we pin that down, we can move on from there. "Normal" is merely as subjective as are the terms "good, art, evil," etc.

    We are not going to pin that one down. The question is intended for each person to apply their own definition of the term.

    Yes, but it's going to be awhile. Just noticed the time and hockey game started and it's a long answer.

    But what does that serve when in one thread we get a gaggle of contentious users?

    Since we can't pin down the definition, and we know such argumentation would ensue, why even offer up the question?*

    That doesn't make sense at all...
    Homosexuality would never come out of evolution, because homosexuals would not likely reproduce. It is an advantage however to have a hyper sex drive= more baby making. I think a side affect of the evolved developing human sex drive has a slight chance of messing up in early development in the womb or early childhood. It shows that women who have a stressful pregnancy have a higher chance of having a gay child.

    I'm assuming to understand how different people think.

    I thought Darwin professed that the point of evolution was survival of the fittest. I would think that all members of said genus were meant to produce, not just a few. But then again if the point of evolution is to survive and multiply, how does this explain the homosexual or the man/woman who prefers to never have children? Odd..
