an atheist viewpoint

thoughts from a non-theist

Religious Bullshit "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."

If there’s one thing that religions love it’s telling other people who they can and cannot have sex with. The Christian god is especially obsessed with sex, repeatedly telling human being that a basic biological function is sinful, and that certain forms of sexual expression are a one way ticket to hell.

Not once does YWHW own up to having created people that way, instead homosexuality is presented at an ‘unnatural lust’, something that goes against nature itself.

But that’s not true –

“One fundamental premise in social debates has been that homosexuality is unnatural. This premise is wrong. Homosexuality is both common and highly essential in the lives of a number of species”

That’s Petter Boeckman, academic advisor for the “Against Nature’s Order?” exhibition being held at the University of Oslo’s Natural History Museum, quoted on, in an article titled ‘1500 Animal Species Practice Homosexuality‘.

The article is an illuminating read, especially for those fundamentalist faith heads who repeatedly claim that mankind is the only species that practices same sex relationships. I’m guessing they’ll turn round and make some kind of ‘well, we’re not like animals’ claim to explain their bigotry and hatred….which is funny as they were only just a moment before using the ‘homosexuality doesn’t happen in nature’ line to attack it. Talk about being caught in a catch 22!

  1.      One thing about the number: does it include or exclude animals in which a typical individual has both male and female organs? (I noticed they mentioned worms.) Oh, don't get me wrong, the fundamentalist claim is still defeated. But "inflated numbers" can make a position look bad; so I don't like to see them.

  2. Not sure, though I think even a conservative figure is over 400

Write what you like, but don't cry if you act like a dick and get banned for it
