The "mediaflow"? You think that we all feel this way because the media told us to? Wow... that is quite an insult! I just know to treat everyone fairly.

"...bases it's laws off of rationality and not religion."

At least we hope so... and want it to be so... but is it really? I don't think that some people do want this at all!

Yes, the spelling is bad, there should be they're and like is capitalized for some strange reason in the middle of the sentence. This is an example of when you spell things wrong, people can take what you meant to say as some thing totally different!

Yes, Superman is a great example of a caped person who is very handy to have around! We treat him like he is a human, don't we? So yes, all caped people who are handy should be treated no differently than those who don't like the fashion style of capes.

Yes, it should be illegal! "Cell phone distraction causes 2,600 deaths and 330,000 injuries in the United States every year." (And this is 2005 data, I am sure that things are worse now!) That is crazy... and I have seen plenty of people texting while driving, too! This should also be illegal!

I am a scientist and someone who believes in God. Maybe not the way the Bible describes him, as it was written by man and therefore flawed, but I still believe that there is a higher being. We don't have the scientific methods to test for him (or her =)!

Exactly! =) The end point can be an emotion, but the means to that end cannot be decided upon by emotion!

You are correct in saying that Utilitarianism tries to avoid putting emotions in the equation when trying to solve what is right and wrong.

You don't really address any of my questions, Jake. I counter your debate and then you ignore the point and go off on a tangent.

So you say that parents are legally married... ok, so if there is a divorce those people are no longer parents? If there is a death of a parent? You are defining a family in a very narrow sense. Gay sex partners are not what we are talking about here, but gay "people who actually love each other and their children and who stay together."

What defines a parent? The person who gave an egg and the person who gave the sperm? I have cousins who are adopted and are perfectly normal and healthy, I have those friends I spoke of before who just adopted less than a month ago. These people are all parents regardless of the fact that they did not give birth to these children! This would be no different if 2 gays adapted. I think that being a parent is more about loving and supporting a child than just knocking some woman up! There are thousands of men out there who get a woman pregnant but have nothing to do with the child's life. The way you are defining being a parent this man would be a father... yet has not doing a damn thing other than ejaculate!
