Remind me again about your post on learning things on the web when one makes an effort to do so!
It was purposely misspelled (except for the "l" which WAS a typo)

So, sorry about your grasping at straws, self-indulgent errant assumption (or what ever it is), but yew were WRONG-Again.

Well if I were trying to make a statement of one pretending to have knowledge of something; I certainly would not intentionally misspell anything in that statement for fear of making myself look the fool

BUT different strokes for different folks

Cheers :)

We were speaking of shamans and witch doctors. They were real, yet powerless in reality. The same God gave life to all those shamans and witch doctors as he did to us. Some just do it wrong.

Exactly. Priest, preacher, prophet, shaman, witch doctor, cosmic muffins, hairy thunderers, creators. You get it - mythologies.

OK, so since pretty much everything that doesn't physically stop the sperm has a chance of this, I guess that you don't support any birth control method other than condom/sponge/diaphragm and the like. Wouldn't you agree that it would be better to condone the other forms of birth control rather than only relying on methods with much higher rates of failure, therefore increasing the incidence of later term abortions?

The other scenario still sounds backwards to me. If you compare sex to driving:
Driving is to car crash, as sex is to abortion, does not equate.
In a car crash, either the car or people, or both are injured.
In an unwanted pregnancy (I'm assuming you mean as the accident), no one is injured (at least not yet). They are inconvenienced, but not needing "help" to save their life. They just don't want to be pregnant, so the abortion would be to end the life of the thing that will inconvenience them in the future. I don't think this is the same thing.
Quit trying to make the car crash life threatening and quit severely devaluing the impact to a young female if you want to see my point. I'm not condoning either side, I just think that many religious people don't look at the human cost of forcing a naive child (who probably can't even support themselves) to carry a pregnancy to full term. I just don't think that anyone automatically placing the "needs" of a completely unaware and unthinking single digit celled zygote above the needs of a fully aware, fully thinking, and likely devastated human being is really being objective in any way.

Can-Am, Caravan, Segway - all modes of conveying a human body to where it wants to go. Sociologically, there in no difference between a priest and a witch doctor. Both perform the EXACT same function. Conveying a human "spirit" to where they want to go.
As an outsider, maybe you see it that way. To me, you sound just like the religious people that you complain about trying to explain science.

Some of us don't have to pretend, therefore, we don't have to run around worrying about it.

If a religious person explains science in a rational manner, there isn't any issue. It's when they get it bass ackward because they 1) are manipulative 2) have been manipulated or 3) just palin (LOL! accidentally appropriate typo, there) don't know what they are talking about that the issues become heated.
I don't care about your "priesthood." You can investigate the anthropological origins of religion for yourself, as you dare. I've found that the topic is somewhat interesting and relevant to the thread, since it is also closely related to the origins of the arts.

I never have felt the presence of a shaman in my life. I do the Living God. Yes I do get it. Smart enough to know what's real and what isn't. I guess it's your word against mine. I'd like to ask you something. If we all initially came from some big bang, why are we like snowflakes. Shouldn't we all all have the same DNA/genetic make up? But..you cannot answer this because in all honesty no one knows what really happened. That is a fact. No human on earth can go back whether billions (as some claim) or thousands of years (as others claim) and tell the story beginning to end. That info does not exist. Studies and findings yes, theories yes. All the story?..no. Still searching for a way to prove their theory and will still be at it when they come face to face with the truth. It would take one who was there in the beginning to tell it all. Right? I know Him. And that's what I believe...Nite.

Precisely. Every time I get into this abortion discussion and I bring up kids having kids people seem to be unwilling to discuss it in those terms. They want to focus on 30-yo women having 8th month abortions...which is *incredibly rare*. But 13-yo girls getting pregnant is not so rare. And steering such a child toward having the baby is irresponsible of adults and it completely ignores the suffering of the child.

I understand the religious position, but it is based on magic and superstition. It requires you to think that when sperm hits egg God shoots a soul into it from Heaven...which is silly.
