    I can prove nothing, Your Star. Why do I believe certain beliefs? Good question. I don't know but perhaps I should go with the flow? If I believed my beliefs superior, I wouldn't call it unprovable.

    Are their standards absolute, Harry Guerilla? What makes them absolutely correct? Feelings?

    So that we'll actually do it.

    If the anus was solely meant for releasing waste and not to be a sexual orifice for some, why are we built to get pleasure from massaging and stimulation the prostate?
    So that we poop.

    Oh hoh. I always question everything. I don't regard feelings as scientific facts, CriticalThought. You should know me enough by know to know I question everything and don't view feelings as absolute.

    I don't buy it. As I have said before, you believe the Bible is infallible. You believe your personal interpretation of the Bible is infallible. You believe your actions that you base on your personal interpretation of the Bible is infallible. And hence, you believe you are infallible. At what point do you not believe you are infallible?

What is the point of an orgasm? One would think that sex would be a boring biological function just like urinating or defecating if it were solely for the purposes of procreation. If the anus was solely meant for releasing waste and not to be a sexual orifice for some, why are we built to get pleasure from massaging and stimulation the prostate? Why do people get off from anal sex? Do you honestly think they are just deranged perverted lunatics?
    I dunno, sometimes a really good pee can feel awfully satisfying....

    Re: Is Homosexuality sinful and/or unnatural?

    What is "sin"?
    What is "wrong"?

    And... how can they be scientifically proven?

    You cannot prove sin, and you cannot prove "wrong".

    Why do beliefs have to be proven? If we respect one another's differences equally why must one be proven over the other?

    A near complete consensus.
    Nearly 100% of people do not want non defensive killing to be legal.

    They own their body and they want to preserve it.
    That makes them correct.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You cannot prove sin, and you cannot prove "wrong".

    ...
    Well you could if you define them in a measurable way.
