In case you missed it, here's a potentially explosive headline, from
yesterday's Arizona Republic:
Fly study points to master gene directing its sexual behavior
It looks to me that this has the makings of real conflict for those who
are certain that sexual preference and behavior are elective,
particularly when based on some pretty explicit scripture references.
There is some strong inference, some correlation evidence, and some
pretty decent (coherent) working hypotheses that up 'til now just formed
a tentative framework that anticipated this discovery. But this appears
very likely to be the missing genetic piece of the puzzle - and
unexpectedly focused on a single gene (at least in this case).
