    So if birds of a feather flock together, we should stick to our own like?

    Not all animals are birds and not all birds flock.

    Straw man argument. What point are you seeking to make?

    No Straw Man about it.

    The point is, are humans animals, or do we just Cherry pick the parts that we wish?

    So for example, homosexuals say that it happens in the animal world so it's acceptable. On the other hand, birds of a feather flock together but racism is classed as bad.

    So the burning question is, are humans like animals?

    Dude, is homosexuality what this is all about? Not all animals act like other animals. Are you just cherry-picking which animals you want to match humans to be like?

    No, I'm not gay, racist or a hypocrite, I'm simply observent. When people claim a position, for example homosexuality, they choose the animal kingdom. Then when racism kicks off, no mention of animals.

    So all I want to know is, are humans just animals?

    Simple question.

    Well, then they have a lot to learn, don't they?

    Ahh, so you are moving goalposts. Good. That indicates that not only do you realize you are wrong, but that you have adjusted your position to accommodate new facts. No, humans are not "just" animals. You've learned enough from me to know that asking a "simple question" like "Are humans animals" isn't so simple.

    Now you've had to adjust and make it a more complex question by asking "are humans just animals?".

    So when we branched off the Chimpanzees, we stopped being an animal?

    So why do gays say it's natural because it happens in the animal world?

    But you should embrace everyone otherwise you're racist.

    Can you see the conundrum?

    Others need to input their thoughts to avoid going round in circles.

    Humans are pack animals by nature always have been for thousands of years, lots of different human packs have and still exist. Humans like to hang out with similar looking, acting humans, promote the well being of members of their pack that are similar looking and acting thereby promoting increasing the strength of their pack .

    Now the latest teachings state this is wrong and all humans belong to a pack that encompasses all humans on the planet and all humans need to promote the well being of all humans.

    It hasn't gone as well as some have planned

    I think you are correct. Certain groups need to realise that we're just animals. Certain laws go against human nature and thus we get prosecuted for being human/animal.

    But one group states we're like animals, another says we're not. So which is it? So is it the gays or racists that lose out? That's the conundrum.

    Or do we Cherry pick both?

    No.

    Define "natural".

    Umm, no. That's incorrect.

    Not for me, but obviously you have a problem. Please explain.

    I don't have a problem. I watch arguments about homosexuality and racism. The argument for homosexuality mentions that it goes on in the animal world so it's natural. Then we have those that say if we don't embrace every other race, we're racist. But with animals, birds of a feather flock together.

    So my simple question is, are humans animals or not? If we are, homosexuality and racism is ok. But if we're not animals, homosexuality and racism is not ok.

    So which is it?
