What?  I don't think cloning is absurd.  I don't think science is
absurd--but it's applications can be cruel, no question.  And
wonderful.  And I believe the science shows (a) HIV exists and (b) it
cause AIDS to develop in the majority infected.  You have offered no
cogent argument to convince me to the contrary--and indeed I've looked
at both sides of the issue over the years.

Get a grip.  For a short time I thought maybe you had the brains to
understand the science.  You have failed to.  You have failed to show
any sign of understanding of the science or willingness to be shown
the erroneousness of your views.  You have expressed bigoted ideas
about gay people and people with HIV/AIDS.  You have made demands of
change in public policy based on this ignorant and bigoted stance.  In
short, you're an asshole.
