Ganapati P replied to Ryan Peterson's discussion 'Does homosexuality make evolutionary sense?'
"I am a former researcher myself and know exactly what criteria are used to start an investigation. No one would start an investigation into whether homosexual preference is biological much less genetic, out of pure academic curiosity anymore than…"

Ganapati P replied to Melchior Vulpius's discussion 'Should I Lie to Children?'
"You can't honestly say the students' parents lied, because you don't know such a God doesn't exist, even if you don't believe He/She/It exists. The student asked you a question about your belief or lack there of, so she is…"

Ganapati P replied to Ryan Peterson's discussion 'Does homosexuality make evolutionary sense?'
"The only kind of homosexuality that even deserves a scientific investigation for possible genetic determination is one where they cannot reproduce because their choice of mate. Investigation into every other kind is politically motivated…"

Ganapati P replied to Solomon Dickson's discussion 'Magic and science: what can be tested for and what can be explained?'
"What exactly is your objective? To let him know why you don't buy into it? Or to convince your friend why believing in such a thing is irrational?   The first one is easy. You tell him that you cannot accept extraordinary claims without…"

Ganapati P replied to Ryan Peterson's discussion 'Does homosexuality make evolutionary sense?'
"I am always amused by this genetically inherited homsexual "preference" concept. How about genetically inherited "preference" for celibacy, "likely" infertility and a "preference" for masturbation? Anyone…"

Ganapati P replied to Ryan Peterson's discussion 'Does homosexuality make evolutionary sense?'
"No has yet identified a 'gay gene'. So assume its existence is jumping the gun."
Dec 2, 2011
Ganapati P replied to Ryan Peterson's discussion 'Does homosexuality make evolutionary sense?'
"From an evolutionary standpoint the only significant things are those that affect the survival of the genes across generations. If the presence of a gene decreases the likelihood of the carrier having offspring, such a gene will eventually be…"

Ganapati P replied to Ryan Peterson's discussion 'Does homosexuality make evolutionary sense?'
"A gene for homosexuality will have the same evolutionary advantages/disadvantages as one for celibacy or infertility. Unless anyone is also looking for genetic explanations for some choosing to stay away from sex and some unable to…"

Ganapati P replied to Ethan Mitchell's discussion 'Astrology.'
"From a materialist-determinist, which is what most atheists claim to be, point of view, all the lives must, at least theoretically, be predictable. So why should it suprise anyone that there are indicators for predicting the course of…"

Ganapati P replied to Aimee's discussion 'Explaining Atheist Morality to a Christian Family'
"The "Good Atheist Arguments" are extremely immature and highly emotional with little logic or reason.   For examplle in the first link the person states that he/she values peace and freedom for everyone (within limits necessary for…"

Ganapati P replied to Aimee's discussion 'Explaining Atheist Morality to a Christian Family'
"William C. Walker,   Religious immoral people (in prisons or not) definitely prove that religion is not a deterrant against immorality. However the counter claim is rather funny. You are assuming that people can't live with harming others…"

Ganapati P replied to Aimee's discussion 'Explaining Atheist Morality to a Christian Family'
"Mo Traven   It was quite interesting to know how reliable the US "justice" system is! Just another reason why the US prison statistics shouldn't enter a discussion that is supposed to involve critical thinking."
Apr 18, 2011
Ganapati P replied to Aimee's discussion 'Explaining Atheist Morality to a Christian Family'
"You explicitly stated earlier that morality is objective like evolution is objective. If somewhere along the line you changed your position, I missed it until now.   Morality is not about what 'is', but what 'ought to be'.…"
Apr 18, 2011
Ganapati P replied to Aimee's discussion 'Explaining Atheist Morality to a Christian Family'
"When you quote US prison statistics in support of atheist morality, you are really reaching.   Given the apparent bias against those who call themselves atheists in the general population, I am quite surprised anyone indicted of serious…"
