    Me: You know that people are born gay, right?

    Him: No, that's not correct, they choose it.

    Me: But scientific and psychiatric studies have pretty much ended that debate.  Their is no "choice" happening.  There may be a realization, later in life, that this is the way one is, however, many say they've always known.

    Him: I don't trust science.  They claim we were once apes, and the earth is more than 6,000 years old.

    Me: first off, science claims that we and apes had the same ancestor.  Secondly, and earth that is 6,000 years has been demonstrably disproven by more than just one branch of science.  They use math and experiments.  Heck they use the very brains that you say God gave us.

    Him: Homosexuality is a choice, case closed.

    Me: So, are you saying that all human beings, at some point in their life, choose which sexual orientation they will have?

    Them: Um, yeah, I guess so.

    Me: So, you could choose right now to be attracted, both emotionally and sexually, to other men?

    Them:  Well......................

    Me: Let me ask you this.  If everyone chooses their sexual orientation, then can you describe to me the process of YOUR choice to be straight?  How old were you?  When did it happen?  What were the factors you weighed?  Did you jot down a pro/con list?  Were you always attracted to both sexes, and then chose women and stopped being attracted to men?  How does this "choice" work, exactly?

    Them: Well, I have to go, actually.  I have an appointment.  I'll email you my response to that, okay?

    Me: Okay.........

    I'm still waiting on that response.


    I'm not an athiest. How can you not believe in something that doesn't exist? That's way too convoluted for me. - A. Whitney Brown
