I dunno- the laws of gravity are pretty simple, and they are exceedingly "realistic". A good description of how the world works needn't be unwieldy; quite the opposite.
Speak for yourself. I keep on forgetting how fast I'm supposed to accelerate when I'm falling, with some pretty spectacular (And/or messy) results. I'm bemused by and a little bit envious of all the rest of you who act like it comes naturally.
Also, the universe itself is really goddamn annoying. The fact that we exist in the first place is a huge violation of the first law of thermodynamics, and while that's more of an observation than something actually proven
, existence itself just doesn't make any sense. Where did it come from? Some people say God, and you know what kind of response that gets—which, of course, is the crux of the problem. Where there parameters or conditions that were required to trigger the Big Bang, or God, or the ur, "First," comment? If so, how were they decided, and why were they true at the time? What caused them? If not, why isn't it happening all the time? We should be up to our eyeballs in Big Bangs.
Honestly, I'm pretty skeptical that the universe exists in the first place.
Possible discussion question: Why do you all think there's a (Not necessarily indicative of the majority) tendency for members of religious groups to feel passionate about LGBT rights on account of their religious beliefs? I'm not asking for the justification used or opinions on said activists—what I'm wondering is, "Why is this issue important?"
In other words, of all the various sins and ideals, why do LGBT rights get so much passion? Is it because sex is such an important aspect of our psychologies that we're bound to have strong feelings and morals when it's brought up? Is it self perpetuating (In other words, if all people talk about is homosexuality, people will keep talking about homosexuality)? Is it related to various leaders throughout history, including religious ones, encouraging reproduction and population growth? Et cetera, et cetera.
