    This is why I read a lot of shit, and then read even more.

    I remember digging through books researching things, and coming across something that had nothing to do with what I what looking for that led me to something fascinating. That doesn't hapen nearly as often as it used to because of Google, but I still stumble across things that remind me of the joy of hard research in books.

    Anyone that really cares about science will teach their children not to believe crap like this.

    I think it's a good way to demonstrate the concept to younger kids. That's a pretty abstract concept for anyone to learn about and what you talked about it is a fun and simple enough way to introduce the topic.

    I don't see any problem with it.

    That it's fully possible. Some girls have been born with 2 vaginas. Some girls have been born without any vagina. Are they any less in the eyes of God?

    Do we have any right to judge?

    We have the right to "choose" which is worse.

    More humans have been disposed of via the exercise of choice, than by judgment.

    Agreed. But there's no need to take that frustration out on gay people

    Possible is one thing, proven is another.

    Gods judgement isn't up to me but in my opinion life has full value from conception.
