Atheists: If science is so great then why hasn't it found a cure for homosexuality?

    Probably for the same reason they haven't found a cure for heterosexuality or for that matter religion.  Because science isn't intended to tell us what we should desire or believe.  That is your job to figure out for yourself.  Science should remain unbiased.

      If science isn't intended to tell us what to believe, why teach it? And don't even try to say science is truth.

    While science is the best we have for figuring out answers about nature, it is still in it's infancy. Science will eventually figure out the genome pool and what does what.

    Because homosexuality isn't an illness.

    Or any other sexually immoral behavior. You think perhaps it may be a consequence of either a obsessive/compulsive disorder or free-will?

      Being gay isn't sexually immoral. The only sexually immoral behaviour is forcing a vulnerable individual - like a child, a disabled person, an elderly person, an animal, etc. - to perform sexual acts for your gratification.

    It does not need a cure, homophobes are the problem....

    Psychologists are working on identifying the cause, which obviously has to precede a treatment.

    Because homosexuality is not a disease that needs to be cured. What needs to be cured is homophobia and the superstition that causes it.

    So if any of the thousand deities made by theists are so great then why hasn't it found not a cure for homosexuality... because kill them all is not a cure last time i check. You can take a hint modern medicine had cure more than 16 million leprosy patients when some gods did a few dozens that were called a miracle..see the difference of a real disease cure?

      Climate Realist so you admit then that homosexuality is a sin otherwise why would it need to be forgiven? What does the Bible say about those who deliberately practice sin without repentance? Please read Romans 1:26-32. It's a real eye opener. See more at Jw.org /Bible questions answered.

    - Atheists do not worship science (but on the other hand, scientists are more likely to be atheist).

    - Unlike religions, when science doesn't know, it admits it doesn't know (yet)

    - Homosexuality is not a disease, so, it doesn't need to be cured.

    3 major misunderstandings within one line.

    I think religion is still the best thing for you.

    Homosexuality isn't an illness. It's a naturally-occurring congenital anomaly.
