    Hard evidence!? I don’t think you know what those words mean, especially not the second one, person who created this list.

    To those who claim that “homosexuality is a choice,” “a mindset,” and the like, I suggest you stop and think very, very, very carefully about that line of thought for one more minute. While you’re thinking about it, consider this. If I were to walk up to you and say, “hello there. I’m a heterosexual man. you’re a heterosexual man. let’s do a little experiment and see if we can toggle from our heterosexual mindset to a homosexual mindset, just for fifteen seconds. let’s make out. let’s kiss with tongue. when we’re finished, we’ll both think like heterosexuals again and stop imagining and thinking like homosexuals, and have lunch together with no awkwardness,” what would you do? should be easy, right? we can rapidly adopt the mindset of wanting to have a very casual moment of physical contact with someone of the same sex and just as rapidly put it in the context of being “just a mindset,” however temporary. btw, calling something a “mindset” lacks meaning, lacks punch. your mind isn’t “set” just because you believe something. because you think a certain way. all it takes is an accident. just a bad turn with the car into a tree, or an electric shock, or a stroke, and presto – your mind is now altered. probably permanently – the damage done to our brains is what “sets” it. not the thinking we’ve been doing without any damage to our brains.

    what I’m getting at here is that no, no amount of re-thinking something, putting oneself in another persons’s shoes, or just accepting a casual moment of mindset-swapping, will allow a heterosexual to make out with another heterosexual, or a homosexual person to make out with another homosexual person. so the whole idea that this is a “choice” is false. If you cannot make the choice to make out with someone of the same sex for a few seconds without feeling your stomach turn, then guess what? your entire premise that homosexuality is a “choice” suddenly is about as true as that mindset I told you about. I would love to grab the guy who tells me that homosexuality is a choice and tell him to make out with me, to make that momentary choice, and watch his fear and loathing and insecurity rapidly bubble up, but I wouldn’t make that request because I’m heterosexual, and can’t bring myself to make the choice to invite anyone to do that with me.

    If you continue to think that homosexuality is a choice after reading this comment, then you should be concerned – your mind really is set, and that means you’ve suffered permanent brain damage and are only just discovering it now.

      I’ll add a quick correction to the above: I wrote “no amount of re-thinking something, putting oneself in another persons’s shoes, or just accepting a casual moment of mindset-swapping, will allow a heterosexual to make out with another heterosexual, or a homosexual person to make out with another homosexual person.” – the correct terms here would be to say, “no amount of re-thinking something, putting oneself in another persons’s shoes, or just accepting a casual moment of mindset-swapping, will allow a heterosexual man to make out with another heterosexual man or a homosexual man to make out with a woman.” there are a few other variations, but you get the idea.

    this list will make the top ten most debatable list of toptenz..and others if i may say really went all out in their opinion that their comments alone could be lenghtier than the actual article….

    Will it help everyone if i tell all of you I was a platypus in my previous life, or a squirrel maybe? rolf!!! Pardon me, I was just being sarcastic…

    But in my own opinion, I think there are so many things out there that still are and will always remain a mystery to all of us..and the more we try to study them the harder we could grasp all the answers…(sorry for the grammar or spelling if there is wrong, im typing while carrying my 7month old son..i just cant resist, too lazy to check)

    Reincarnation is absolutely real. If you haven’t yet read any of the thousands of researched case studies, I would do so before posting here in such confidence. Birthmarks do match, young children do have these memories and in many cases both of those are documented and/or verified. You can’t just ignore they exist. There have been cases of children speaking ancient biblical language that is no longer used, young children in Midwest USA naming povern villages in 3rd world countries that I don’t even know exist. How do you explain this?

    Mozart is from Austria. Although back then Salzburg has been on German territory. But you’d also never say Kafka is from Austria. Although at that time Prague was in Austria. Just saying.

    I’ve known for the last 1000 years or so that reincarnation is bunk.

    I have deja vu sometimes and I have visions. You want to know why…I have epilepsy! I have complex partial seizures. I used to have them once a month and stressed caused them. They scared me for a long, long time. I didn’t know what was wrong with me.

    The weird idea is that one lives but once. It is an amazing set of mental gyrations people go through to try to make that idea fit their prejudices and what they have been taught. It is not what the rest of the world believes, probably not even the majority. Go tell an Indian that he lives only once and see what kind of reaction you get.

      It makes perfect sense that people would think that there was only one (conscious) life, as there is no empirical proof gathered by scientific, objective means that points to any more. (if there is, I’d very much like to know what it is)

      Why would I care any more what a indian has to say about this than anyone else? Is he more qualified for the job than someone who does not follow his religion(assuming he’s hindu), or are people supposed to be moved and convinced only by the conviction in his beliefs?
