The First Gay Caveman?


I read a story today that at first, I thought was a joke, but apparently, the archaeologists involved are serious.  According to more than one source, a human skeleton was discovered near Prague recently, and because it was buried in what is alleged to be a position that is normally reserved for women, the conclusion that the archaeologists arrived at is that this could very well be the first known gay man ever located from eons past.

It seems to me that the “professionals” are pushing credulity way past the limits of common sense and believability here and they are doing it with a straight face!  I suppose that if a man of Scottish culture had been uncovered and no one knew that they sometimes wore kilts and if said man had been somehow kept in a fairly pristine state due to being buried let’s say in an iceberg, then I also suppose that these same archaeologists would arrive at the conclusion that said individual was the first known cross-dresser.

Let’s stop and look at the reasoning these archaeologists have used to determine that the individual they found may very well have been gay.  It’s brilliant!  Brilliant, I say!  Have a read through yourself:

“During the Copper Age 5,000 years ago, men were traditionally buried facing the west, along with weapons and knives. But archaeologists in the Czech Republic say the skeletal remains of the newly discovered caveman were found facing the east, along with household items like water jugs and pots, funeral rites almost always reserved for women in the region during that time.” [1]

Wow, isn’t that something?  So this guy was facing the wrong direction and instead of weapons, he was buried with cooking items.  So I guess it was against the rules for men to cook back then?

The article continues with even more information from left field.  “From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took funeral rites very seriously, so it is highly unlikely that this positioning was a mistake,” archaeologist Kamila Remisova Vesinova told reporters Wednesday, according to London’s Telegraph. “Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transsexual.” [2]

I think that’s hilarious.  I’m sorry, but the idea is that during this particular period of time, people took funerals seriously, implies that other cultures during other periods did not?  Wow, this is from allegedly intelligent people.

I recall when archaeologists found coral encrusted (what is believed to be) chariot wheels at the bottom of the Red Sea (as well as other artifacts like soldier and horse armor).  They could not bring it up, but they did take some very detailed photos.  Immediately, the atheists came out in droves downplaying the entire find.  Egypt essentially said that no more divers could go there for research and in general the world went “No big deal.  Nothing to see here.  Move along.”

So we find chariot wheels, horse and soldier armor and even skulls and bones, but that’s not a big deal.  It doesn’t mean anything.  Surely, it could not have anything to do with the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt centuries ago.  Nah, couldn’t have anything to do with that and certainly, it would take a whole lot more chariot wheels in the same place to convince die-hard atheists that we are looking at the result of the Red Sea passage.

Yet, archaeologists find one skeleton of a guy who is facing the wrong direction (according to them), and buried with cooking utensils and BANG! the results are in!  He must have either been gay or a transsexual!

I’m sorry, but this is laughable!  This is their evidence?  This is science?  So does that mean that men who cooked during that particular period of time were gay?  So I guess the cooks on the wagon trains in America may also have been gay?  Oh no wait, that was a different period of time and maybe the old west didn’t take funerals so seriously.

On a related note, I read another article by a completely different source that stated a study done recently shows that the percentage of gays is much closer to 1.7% as opposed to the 10% that the gay and lesbian community would have us believe.  Who’s right?  The LEFT, of course.  They’re always right and the Right is always wrong.  Conservatism sucks in general, so let’s do away with it and do whatever possible to eradicate the thinking of the conservatives.

I can just see the talking heads on the telly talking seriously about this latest “find;” a gay or transsexual man uncovered in Prague.  Wow, what a story!  Just think for anyone who gets this out there, they could be in line for a Pulitzer prize!  How awesome is that?

A gay caveman.  Uh…sure.  More importantly, who cares?  It appears that members of the gay and lesbian communities are trying so hard to be seen as normal that they are trying just about anything to get there, even foisting on human ancestors something that may or may not be true.

If we segue to today, all eyes and spotlights are on the gay community of Hollywood.  Why is it a badge of honor for a celebrity to come out of the closet?  I could absolutely care less about their private lives.  Why do they do it?  Peer pressure by staunch gays and lesbians.  These individuals want the world to believe that gays and lesbians are as normal and highly numbered as heterosexuals.  Being gay in private is not allowed in the community of celebrities.

Do you remember Doogie Howser, M.D.?  I recall watching it and it was not a bad show.  In fact, though I was not a regular viewer, I noted that it had some very interesting TV moments.  Eventually, like every show, it had its run and ended.  What happened to the star Neil Patrick Harris?  He went away…for a while.

When he came back, he was all of a sudden gay.  He was proud that he “outed” himself and now he and his partner just adopted twins.  Isn’t that cute?  It amazes me that the average person is so interested in the lives of celebrities at all.  I’m not.  I like them for their acting, if I like them at all.  I prefer they keep their private lives and especially their politics to themselves.

When I watched Doogie Howser, I enjoyed the show and saw Neil Patrick Harris as a decent young actor.  His most recent show, “How I Met Your Mother,” is something I have only seen in previews.  I’ve never watched an episode of it.  I don’t need to because I know that the topic is not that interesting and unfortunately, all I would be thinking is “Here’s a gay man who is pretending to be a womanizer on this show.”  Absurd.  Because of what we know about Harris, that fact keeps you from believing the characters on the show because Neil Patrick Harris’ gayness is the real story, at least for me.  It is impossible for me to get around that because he was so busy foisting it upon the American people.

It’s kind of like watching Tina Fey and trying to separate her from her lampoon of Sarah Palin.  It’s difficult to do, especially when it is clear that she was simply trying to make fun of Palin, not to mention the fact that Fey’s politics are diametrically opposed to Palin’s.  Even Fey believes that her portrayal of Palin has taken a toll on the ratings for her show, “30 Rock.”  It could be true; either that or people are just a bit tired of the shtick each week.

Whatever the case, it would appear that the Gay and Lesbian militants are out in force, determining that there should be a gay in every household, just like there should be a gay on every TV show.  You are aware that the Gay and Lesbian Taskforce actually counts the number of gays on every TV show, aren’t you?  Their goal is to normalize it so that people become so used to seeing gays everywhere that they won’t bat an eye.

Imagine if heterosexuals stood up and starting bragging about their love life; what they do, how often they do it, and who they do it with.  Would that be something you would want to hear about?  Yet, with gays, the expected response is “That is so awesome!  He/she is brave enough to throw caution to the wind and announce to the world they’re gay!”

Yeah, well that’s good.  But you know what?  I’m heterosexual – always have been and always will be – and I am proud of that.  I don’t see people standing in line patting me on the back or swooning over my alleged bravery though.  No one has nominated me for an award and there are no compliments coming my way.  You know why?  Because being heterosexual is passe, that’s why.  It’s not exciting enough to be merely heterosexual, because most people are, so what’s so wonderful about it?  Now, being gay or lesbian, that’s the new civil rights movement right there for you.

I’m still waiting for archaeologists to dig up some massive amount of proof that shows that gays and lesbians were not only well-received and considered normal in past ages, but it was routine for them to be married.  Marriage has been around since man was a human being.  So where is all the proof that being gay and lesbian is normal?  I don’t see it and apparently, archaeologists have not found it either.  If they had, they would not be making such a big deal out of one male skeleton who was buried facing what they allege is the wrong direction, and with a bunch of cooking pots.  If the evidence was there to more than suggest that gays and lesbians married routinely in ages past, that is what they would be showing the world.  They would not be shining the spotlight on the fact that a male skeleton might be gay or transsexual based on burial position and hobbies.  Not only does this insult my intelligence, but it stretches credulity so far that it snaps in half, yet, they present their find with a straight face.

If people are gay, that’s up to them.  I accept the fact that there are people in this world who believe they were born gay or lesbian, or transsexual, or (you fill in the blank).  What annoys me most about this entire area is that people are actually applauded for being gay.  They continue to thump their chests with pride for coming out and announcing to the world their sexual awareness as if doing so means that they have achieved something that no one else has or will.  They brag about being gay and if the world doesn’t like it, too bad.

I talk about being a Christian and I’m called a “Bible thumper,” whatever that means.  I don’t hit people over the head with my Bible.  I don’t beat them up physically either if they do not agree with my point.  I let people live the way they want to live, but I offer my opinion about things just like the gay person offers his/her opinion about things.  They are seen as charming and brave.  I am seen as naive, rigid, unloving, and legalistic.  The reality is that I’m the brave one because there is a far greater chance that when I voice my opinion about certain matters, I will be on the side of the smaller percentage, meaning a far greater number of people will disagree with me.  That means that I am in far more danger of being ostracized or even attacked because of my beliefs than the gay person is for coming out.  They are applauded.  I am shouted down.

That’s the way it is in this world and I’ve come to accept that.  However, I will by no means not state my opinion, simply because I answer to God, not human beings.  While this particular post may sound harsh to many, what people need to understand is that Christianity is a call to love and most would agree with that.  Love however, does not ignore things that are wrong, but actually points them out.  This is what Jesus did.  This is what Paul did.  This is what the rest of the apostles did and this is what we are to do.

Of course, what I consider to be wrong is based on my understanding of morality as expressed by God’s Word and people are free to disagree with me.  They are not free to shut me up and make me appear to be something that I am not.  This will, unfortunately, continue to occur because it is politically correct to be for the gay person, as opposed to being against the gay lifestyle.  To many, these words are simply nuances, but the truth may well be that for those who believe they must pound their chests in pride for being something they allege they had no choice in being, they are actually doing a major disservice to those of us who are simply taking the time to point out that there are problems in their lives that need attention.

Being gay is not something God condones, but neither does He willingly cast the gay person out.  He will only do this when said gay person continues to insist that God made him/her that way, when in point of fact, he/she is crediting God for something that God did not in any way create.  That is called lying and rebelling.  Continued rebellion until the end of a person’s life will result in being cast out of God’s presence for all eternity.

I cannot wait for the next big archaeological find:  a male skeleton with a fossilized flower near his skull, which obviously meant that he was a flower girl at someone’s gay wedding.
