This is not a post on homosexuality. It's just something I don't understand and here it is:
I think it's fair to say that most atheists also feel that evolution is a given scientific fact. Now, one of the laws of evolution is not only adaptation of the species but survival of the individual and its contribution to the continuance of the species. The most successful male is the one who has done the most to pass his DNA on to the next generation. The most successful female is the one who has done the same. Simply put, the male and female with the most babies are the most evolutionarily successful. This is basic natural science.
Homosexuality is a dead end, according to this thinking. After all, male-male and female-female intercourse produces nothing. It's entirely for self-gratification without any contribution towards the continuance of the species. It's a profoundly negative behaviour from a genetic point of view. If the guy with 100 kids is the big winner, the guy who chooses to produce 0 kids is the exact opposite.
What's more, according to strict evolutionists, a human being is just another animal, a well-dressed ape. So the laws of nature and natural success should apply to us just as much as other animals.
So how does a homosexual atheist who swears by evolution resolve the conflict?
