Science Once Again Shows it Hates God
Sunday, June 05, 2005
(SNN New York) Science has once again proven God wrong. It has long been argued by the religious right that sexual orientation is decided by choice. However, now Science has some compelling evidence otherwise. Researchers discovered a single "switch gene" that swaps the sexual orientation of males and females.
None of us chooses our sexuality. It just happens.
Dr Michael Weiss, chairman of biochemistry at Ohio University, was as surprised at the findings. "It seems that none of us chooses our sexuality. It just happens. The results are so clean and compelling, the whole field of the genetic roots of behavior is moved forward tremendously by this work," he said.
Lesbian flies rebuffed males that tried to mate with them.
In the research, published yesterday, genetically altered male fruit flies spurned females and became attracted to other males. Genetically altered females engaged in complex male mating rituals, vibrating their wings, licking other female flies' genitalia and curling their backs ready for copulation. Lesbian flies rebuffed males that tried to mate with them.
But female genital licking aside, this is just another setback for the religious establishment which has struck out repeatedly on scientific questions from the earth being flat to the Mississippi River being dug by Paul Bunyan’s axe. It is not yet known if far right groups will now start attacking the validity of genetics.
I do want to thank you for stopping by, I hope you will return. I'll be stopping by from time to time.
God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
