A scientist is someone who conducts scientific research to advance knowledge in an area of interest.In classical antiquity, there was no real ancient analog of a modern scientist. Instead, philosophers engaged in the philosophical study of nature called natural philosophy, a precursor of natural science. It was not until the 19th century that the term scientist came into regular use after it was coined by the theologian, philosopher, and historian of science William Whewell in 1833. In modern times, many scientists have advanced degrees in an area of science and pursue careers in various sectors of the economy such as academia, industry, government, and nonprofit environments.

Thank you for your question. Firstly, traditional scholars argue that people are not born with homosexual inclinations and they do not accept these findings as an accurate narrative of the facts. However, if for the sake of argument we accept that they are, then just like any other inclination to sin a homosexual is required not to act on those inclinations. In the same way that someone may argue that some people are naturally more inclined to rape, violence or murder, that does not means that they should necessarily be free to act on those inclinations. The people of Lot were punished because of sinning in the same way that other communities were punished because of their sins. 

May you always be successful
