Re: First direct evidence for inflation

Forgive me for what might be a stupid question but how does each half life get less frequent? Can't get my head around that. Half life of what exactly? Okay....Basically say you have a large lump of Uranium (1Kg). After a certain amount of time, half of the atoms of said lump will fission (Lose ato...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

"Infants are not, as it were, people. Nor are children. Nor are Teenagers" :swhat: No wonder we're having so much difficulty understanding each other or reaching some common ground. Forgive me if I here slap-dash around my words, but I seriously disagree with you. Don't mean to be rude, but really ...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

I feel I must voice my disagreement with yours and RickD's useage of words. Infants are not, as it were, people. Nor are children. Nor are Teenagers (A term which only came into relative use/existence after the First World War, I believe. Before that there was no 'slow' transition from childhood to ...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

I don't see any logic in comparing cancer cells with embryo. Because...at the very early stages...a blastocyte is little more than a partially differentiating clump of cancerous like cells. Something randomly moving through the woman's body looking for a place to latch on and begin draining nutrien...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

So would you say abortion is wrong past say 4 months pregnancy? That seems well beyond the grey line to me. So...really, in the first place, one would always hope that every actual pregnancy was a wonderful, joyous affair of the family etc. Unfortunately, we know real life has a way of screwing thi...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

I read what you're saying ryanbouma. My 'comments/'concerns' stem with preventative measures both before and immediately after the act to prevent the pregnancy in the first place. When is a bundle of cells human? The image I gather from most of these posts before is that ANY bundle of cells is ALWAY...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

But there is a "clear line". It's painfully simple actually. Before conception=no life. The moment of conception=new human life has begun. So...if the immediate bundle of cells upon conception is 'Human life'...why/how can we remove cancer cells? Also....what about all the myriad ties when even aft...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

Seriously? After all the previous exchanges, and quotes for people on both sides, I find this incredulous. It is simply burying your head in the sand, which you're entitled to do. But I do wonder whether you'd find it any less disagreeable killing a conceived human life after 3 weeks which already ...

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

Thad, supporting such a twisted idea is totally absent of morality. You may as well steal, lie, rape, and kill as you please, because that's what atheism becomes with this way of thinking. I've put forward my ideas/reasoning's. A one day old bundle of cells is NOT a human. Hence my comment about ca...

Re: Robots

Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

Err, what question? Does anyone else not see a valid unanswered question? That "Human life =/= Human cells. " ? I'm breaking off conversation with you now Thad. It's become obvious you just have a peeve with me. No worries, all the best. So...does this mean I win something? ;) Much cheers to all.

To Kurieuo "You took my criticism on the chin..." Yes...well..attacking the man instead of playing the ball is one way to have a go at a conversation I suppose. As for "Cite respectable authorities..." ? Picking and choosing various quotes doesn't really do any thing when I never seem to get a respo...
