No matter how large the number, when you count backwards to the smallest positive integer, you get the number 1.
When one speaks of ‘God’ or ‘The Universal Sub-conscious Mind,’ the distinction of cognitive and emotive language is necessary for clarification. I was first introduced to the distinction by G. Rosenstock, a professor of the philosophy of education at the university I was attending. This distinguished thinker had been a rabbi for more than 20 years before he denounced all orthodox religions. His parents died in the holocaust.
One of the books of required reading was ‘Three Magic Words’ by U.S. Anderson. I revisited the book some years later and realized that Anderson had fallen short on some key concepts. In general, some of his basic ideas were on the mark. Enough of that for now.
The Creator or God only creates. It is human kind that applied the label of “good” or “bad” or “evil.” It doesn’t matter what ‘name’ human beings give to the Creator. Humans are so arrogant and foolish about true knowledge. Dogmatic to terrible faults. Please, if you don’t already know what dogmatic means, look it up and read it for yourself. Enlightenment.
Scientific knowledge is constantly evolving. When I was a middle school science teacher, textbooks stated that there were (are) 3 types of bacteria but thousands of different kinds of bacteria. Fortunately for us, most bacteria are helpful and not harmful to human beings.
Here is the point that I have in mind……..The Creator created all of this bacteria. It is mankind that determines whether a specific kind of bacteria is “good” or “bad.”
Personally, I have never engaged in any kind of sex act with another man. I have never had a desire to engage in any kind of sex act with another man. Right on to gays and lesbians! Every human being has a right to find happiness and live the life of his or her desire so long as it is not harmful to someone else.
I say this responsibly.
As for the religious dogma regarding human sexuality and “sin,” who created hermaphrodites?
Religious people must admit that God(no matter what name they give the God they worship) made hermaphrodites. Those religious people of “faith”, must also admit that God created hermaphrodites without them having any say-so in the matter. The common and sicking explanation that dim-witted dogmatic individuals give is, “God cursed them because their parents must have sinned” or some other idiotic explanation to justify their reasoning. No, the only sin is ignorance of people who think that way.
At his persistence, as an adult, I studied for more than 3 years with an elder of the Jehovah Witness religion. My dear mother brought us up in the baptist church. I have studied aspects of some world religions. I have a more profound understanding of the Creator and the roles of religion in human affairs. I am not a member of any religion or religious organization.
The Creator is the sub-conscious force that is infinite in power and presence. In other words, the Creator is the all powerful creative force that is present through out the infinite universe. “God” is a concept created out of the minds of mankind. Most ‘Gods’ were created by men of patriarchal societies which is why “God” is referred to as ‘he’, or ‘father’, the masculine gender. The Creator has no gender.
This is a little off of the subject, but food for thought. With all of the advances in technology and scientific thought, theory, and calculations, no human being can prove or reasonably state or “speculate” where the center of the universe is located.
Back to human sexuality. Through science, we find that there is a definite distinction between the male and female brain and body chemistry. Hormones. So if “God” created hermaphrodites, it is their fate to be forever sinners any time they engage in sex. Bullshit(excuse me). Having both a penis and vagina, a hermaphrodite will be engaging in a homosexual act by having sex with a man or a woman.
I have not read extensively on the subject of the evolution of the human family, but a little reasoning leads me to believe that the ancestors of mankind were hermaphroditic. Why? A man cannot have a baby. Two women can not have a baby. True hermaphrodites have full function of both parts. Tho extremely rare, there is literature of true hermaphrodites having sex with each other and producing a baby.
Biology students know about dormant and recessive traits. Over the course of time, it is very likely that our hermaphroditic ancestors began producing some
offspring whose genes were dominant in regards to developing only male genitalia, and some offspring whose genes were dominant in regards to developing only female genitalia.
Now think about it. An ancient ancestor is born and reaches sexual maturity with a ding-a-ling that is more pronounced or prominent, than it’s tweedy pie. This ancestor finds that it prefers to use it’s ding-a-ling for sex. It does not use it’s tweedy-pie(Type A). Then there is another ancestor who prefers to use it’s tweedy-pie for sexual pleasure, and does not use or exercise it’s ding-a-ling(TypeB). There’s some truth to the cliche, “If you don’t use it you lose it,” which is applicable to Type A individuals and Type B individuals.
Now think of many individuals having Type A behavior, and many individuals having Type B behavior. Combine this sexual behavior with the principles of Mendelian inheritance and genetics, diet, environmental factors, and the time allotment of evolution. This gives us a robust departure point toward understanding the development of human sexuality.
In the course of human evolution, the time frame is millions of years.
Below are illustrations of the evolution of the horse’s hoof. During the course of evolution of living things, some appendages recede due to lack of use or function. Some traits or organs evolve due to more use and/or development of specialization. Now, transfer and apply these two processes to the evolutionary development of male and female human reproductive systems and sexuality, and the mystery begins to unfold.
Google the evolution of the horse’s hoof for a more in depth investigation.
There is a village in the Dominican Republic where little girls grow a penis and become boys at or near puberty. I have inserted an article that I found on the internet.
As covered by Michael Mosley in the 2015 BBC series, Countdown to Life: The Extraordinary Making of You, the remarkable case of the Guevedoces is a condition that affects just over 1 percent of the boys born in Salinas, a remote village lying in the southwest of the Dominican Republic.
Guevedoces (literal translation “penis at 12”) – who are also called “machihembras“, meaning “first a woman, then a man” – appear to be completely female at birth and are brought up to be little girls.
“When they’re born, they look like girls with no testes and what appears to be a vagina,” wrote Mosley for The Telegraph back in 2015. “It is only when they near puberty that the penis grows and testicles descend.”
After the developments of puberty, Guevedoces grow up to be fully functional males in their society, although some telltale signs do give away their unique biological heritage.
“Apart from being slightly undersized, everything works and the Guavadoces normally live out their lives as men,” wrote Mosley, “albeit with wispy beards and small prostates.”
Not all Guevedoces in the Dominican Republic change their name upon hitting puberty – some grown men in the region have female names throughout their life. The condition is not isolated to just the Dominican Republic, it’s also been observed in Turkey and New Guinea.
In the course of human development, sometimes factors such as genetics, diet, environmental chemicals can cause an embryo to develop abnormally. There are individuals who have the “brain chemistry” and mind of a woman “trapped” in a man’s body, and vice-versa. They didn’t create themselves, “God” did it.
I have heard arm-chair, opinionated, non-experts(to say the least) voice that homosexuality is a learned behavior.
What ever the underlining reason for individuals engaging in homosexual acts, that’s their own personal right. Live your life baby, with the blessings of the Creator.
Gore Vidal——- (paraphrase) ——–there are no homosexuals, only individuals who engage in homosexual acts.
An after thought. It could be that hermaphrodites have been blessed and not cursed by “God.”
They are able to enjoy the best of both worlds of sexuality. Just saying.
Just a tibit on sexuality. Between the Kama Sutra and the Tao, I prefer the latter.
The Tao of Love and Sex by Jolan Chang is wonderful.
Care for a little light-hearted sensuality?

I just read that they have built a “replica” of Noah’s Ark in Kentucky. $100 million. It just goes to show how far people will go to try and convince gullible people of the absurd. Dinosaurs and elephants on the same boat! Once upon a time………………
I read a cartoon that pictured a caveman and his woman with a volcano erupting in the distance, lighting, and the indication of an an earthquake. He says to her, “I can’t explain all this shit. Let’s invent religion.”
The Bible is a wonderful book filled with wisdom, truths, allegory, parables, and some historical fact. It is not a history book. One has to navigate the Bible with the thought in mind that (as a blues lyric states), that “everything in the Bible ain’t necessarily so.” Critical thinking is a must.
There are “truths” that I truly believe. I will not try to list all of the ones that come to mind, but here are two. ‘God is a spirit and you must worship God in spirit and truth.’ ‘God is good.’
When evil deeds are committed in the name of ‘God’, the individual or individuals responsible for the evil deeds corrupt the concept of God. They are the worst of the worst.
I believe in and try to live by the ‘Golden Rule.’
I read Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, in my late teenage years, a time when I was in transition from my religious indoctrination to a more profound understanding of Gods, God, and religion.
Today, April 9, 2019, is the date of my present understanding of human existence and ideas of the Creator, Gods, and religion.
The Creator is the universal sub-conscious intelligent creative force that is infinite in time, space, and power(force). With an understanding based on the magnificent yet limited mind of mankind, this creative force and power always existed and always will exist after our world is no longer.
Our world, Mother Earth, and all of its species including the noblest, … mankind, are only some of an un nameable number of creations of the Creator. Creations that have existed, creations that exist, and creations that are still to come. Creations that are known and creations unknown that can’t even be accurately imagined by the minds of mankind.
