Atheists, if evolution is real then why do homos exist?

Clearly being homosexual would be an evolutionary disadvantage since it isn't effective for reproduction and if they don't spread their genes on then how do their homo genes still exist? Their genes are evolutionary inferior + they don't reproduce, how does this survive natural selection?

    Answer.

    In a large and stable Darwinian population individual outliers are actually an evolutionary advantage.  What?  

    A shamanic  vision.  The oracle of Delphi.  Rituals and mysticism, and gay proclivities.   And also darker things like mental disorders, blood sacrifice.  

     These are often the source of new ideas, new insights, that may prove beneficial to the population.

    The X and Y chromosomes determine only whether an individual will develop into a male or a female organism.  Nevertheless, it is every organism's complete set of nuclear chromosomes which are large and complex enough to program their instinctive behaviors.  Ultimately, this means every individual carries a complete set of genes for both male and female instinctive behaviors.  This is why, absent social conformity, every person is instinctively capable of loving either sex.   Ordinarily, social norms dictate our sexuality but, should those norms fail to completely determine our sexual preferences, one way or the other, we are all instinctively capable of finding someone we can love.  This phenomenon is widespread among all social mammals, including some birds and fishes.   Pairs who engage in homosexual behaviors cannot reproduce, which has no effect on their species' collective genome because failing to reproduce introduces no genomic changes which would then be susceptible to Natural Selection.

    Fish eggs are still fish eggs and chicken eggs are still chicken eggs.  Speciation (as within dog breeds) or changes within a species to adapt to environment does not change one kind of animal into another.  Look at the evidence honestly, putting all biases aside, then make your decision.

    The word 'dinosaur' came from two Greek words that mean 'terrible lizard': a word made up in the 1800s to describe reptile fossils (fossil is from the French for 'dug up').

    Tsunami waves engulfed everything in mud, then under the forces of extreme pressure turned them into stone. For a year and a half minerals (silica mostly) permiated plant and animal tissues. The mud also solidified as it compressed under the weight of billions of tons of water.  Stone cannot be dated.  Once around the sun is a year: you cannot hold up a rock and decide how many times it travelled around the sun. 

    When a fish dies, it rots or gets eaten; it does NOT turn into a fossil.  But there are fish fossils everywhere; even on mountains. Every fossil is the result of the world-wide flood. Period.

    Pre-flood the air had 50% more oxygen in it.  Hyper-oxygenated air meant the world was like a hyperbaric chamber, everything lived exponentially longer because of the air quality.  We know this because we have air samples from before the flood extracted from bubbles trapped in fossilized sap (amber).

    Adam lived until he was 930. Noah was 600 when he built the Ark (Google Noah's Ark Turkey - a tourist attraction since the 1970's A.D.).  

    Believing in lies about evolution makes you guilty of making God out to be a liar. This is slander against the Most High: making you guilty of spiritual treason against your Maker. 

    You've heard of bacteria 'evolving'?  No such thing: simply, the hardier bacteria were never killed off by the antibiotic in the first place. The weaker bacteria were. All that's left is 'resistant' bacteria. They were never subject to antibiotics to begin with. They never 'evolved': they are still and always will be, just bacteria.  

    Do you want to see evolution? 

    God can raise children for Abraham from the stones if He wants. 

    He doesn't need any of us.  He can change what is in the blink of an eye.... He doesn't need millenia.

    If you are triggered by this message, let me assure you don't care about your opinon, but I do (very much) care about you.  That's why I'm here, to tell you that you can't afford to be wrong about your Maker.  Will you change your attitude?  Will you change your mind?  God loves you, dear reader.  He wants you to know Him and He wants to care for you: you are the only one standing in His way.

    Evolution is for grownups. You aren't expected to understand.

    There is no evidence that homosexuality and other psychosocial disorders are genetic in origin.

    • Commenter avatarLog in to reply to the answers

    Just because homosexuality is not genetic.

    There is no "gay gene".

    Homosexuality appears randomly whatever the parents' sexual orientation.

    It seems to be driven by the exposure to sexual hormones at a precise point around the 8th week of pregnancy.

    Homosexuality is a disadvantage for the community only during a demography crisis when there are not enough newborns to replace dying elders (disease, high infant mortality, low life expectancy). 

    Examples are post-Neolithic in Middle-East, European Middle-Age...

    In those times, the societies react by enacting anti-gay laws for a limited period. 

    In the Bible, Homosexuality is made illegal, so they could get extra births from gays and against their wills.

    The words for "illegal" were "sin", "abomination"...

    In periods of overpopulation (nowadays...) gays can (or should!) freely live their life.

    Evolution is a biology theory. Biology is science. Science is nothing about theism or atheism.

    Atheism is just the honest disbelieve in the invisible entities some theists call gods nothing else.

    There is some studies that found that the genes for homosexuality persist because despite making non-reproductive (if avuncular) men, when they appear in women they produce excellent breeders? Yes the evolutionary paradox of homosexuality that is curiously found in many other species... Others point to certain animal groups, which lessen their reproduction rate when the population fills the ecological niche. "This is a way to fulfill one’s sexual needs without overpopulation; this is natural selection in action.

    Gay people have been having children/parenting since the beginning of time, dear.   

    Logic fail.

    ETA:   Through the same methods that are available to everyone else.   SMH.

    1) If every male/female were mating, the poulation could reach unsustainable levels, leading to every member paying the price with food& territory shortages.

    2) genes are not that simple. It could be several genes interacting to determi e the likelyhood. An inborn diceroll that the entire species has.

    3) there are several examples of same-sex couples 'adopting' recected/orphaned young of same species. Making your own babies in NOT the only way a % of members can help the species progress

    Evolution is real.  Homosexuals exist.  Atheism is about the non-existence of gods.  These are unconnected truths.  Deal with it.
