Please be careful when you say things like that.
Evolution is a fact. So you're either using the scientific word "theory" (which many people don't understand requires far more factual basis than we commonly associate with "theory"), or you're talking about "evolutionary creationism" or whatever you want to call "evolution from atoms" type primordial-sludge-level stuff.
I think some people simply feel that there is no need to have religious beliefs at all. They aren't using science to "replace" religion, they feel that religion is simply the way people filled their lives with meaning in the absence of knowledge and understanding.
- Religion is becoming less and less popular.
- The smarter someone is, the less likely they are to be religious.
I'm citing those two things only because they speak to the last point - that religion was big in the days when they couldn't explain the sun, or plagues, and thought they were being punished by Gods or rewarded, or whatever. These days we can explain more and more of the world around us, and people are less and less religious.
I think homosexuality has been shown to be far more frequently biological than a choice. Equating biological homosexuality to hermaphrodites or whatever you're talking about seems really disingenuous.
There are homosexuals in other species. Dolphins, monkeys, etc. Are they making a choice too? Or are they more likely to be guided by whatever their biology tells them to do?
And in many cases, things simply aren't provable yet. We've identified several genetic markers that speak to things that were previously thought to involve choice.
I'm not saying we don't have choices or free will… but I am saying that what we know now is likely a drop in the bucket of what's true. We know more now than ever, but it's still a drop in the bucket. Compare even what we know now about DNA to the decade after it was discovered.
The evidence for evolution is vast. The evidence on creationism is nonexistent. Using the theory excuse is a lame argument. Gravity is a theory. Does it not exist because it is theoretical? Creationist are demanding you think the way they do with no deviation. Science is constantly asking new questions even when answers are discovered.
Homosexuality is a deviant behavior, and the people of LOT لوط in arabic had the town they lived in lifted into the sky and then turned over and smashed back down by the Arch Angle Gabriel جبرائيل (Arabic Name) and they were eliminated accordingly.
It is impossible for me to meet in the middle with anyone on this as my belief is not up for discussion. However, what I can do is let those people live their lives as they wish, as I will not be held accountable.. Do I like them no.. Do I hate their behavior? Yes.. Would I allow someone to teach my children that it is ok for Fred to have 2 dads or two moms? No.. Will I go out of my way to bother these deviants? No.. They are free to make what ever shitty decision they want to make, however I reserve my right to pass judgment on their deviant behavior and I will not be held hostage by the gay hollywood type who are looking to expand their gay circles around the US and around the world.
Go ahead guys and say what ever you want about me.. find out if I care?
So what you're saying is that if homosexuality is somehow proven to be genetic, and thus not a choice, you're simply going to plug your ears and hum a tune?
Bummer for you man.
FWIW, I consider myself a spiritual person, but I do not believe there's any one "god" out there, and I think the Bible may be the single biggest con in the history of mankind. But I consider myself spiritual - I think there's something we haven't yet figured out about how we think or how our minds work, or whether "souls" exist or not (I feel as though they do). Religion is just another form of spirituality, so I don't have any problems with people who are "religious" either, and I often discuss "spirituality" with them.
I do have a problem with people who are close-minded. But that's true regardless of the topic.
