Of course now the basta@rd has to actually see the post.
When I brought up one of Doc's past eff-ups he told me to forget the past. Funny coming from him, doncha think?
Toots, you're not worth the credit you're giving yourself. You don't have the intelligence to intimidate anyone with your posts, and certainly not people who OWN you PCers in discussion.

These are some of the same scientists that suggest that man can control the climate of the earth. What you just described is a human being to everyone except liberals. Since they are way smarter then everyone else with a different opinion, and of course a liberal is never wrong about anything, just as one, they know that its not a human being at all. In other words, an apple can be an orange if they say it is. If you dare to disagree, their wrath is what you'll get. So tolerant and compassionate of them, don't you think?
Couldn't have said it better. An apple can be an orange if they say it is.

Why so many are easily fooled. They repeat what they're told to believe without question. If they're told enough times an apple is an orange, then it must be true.

What's stumping scientists?
"During early embryonic development, organ systems develop on an "as needed" basis. The brain and spinal cord, for example, which are required to control and coordinate the functions of other major organ systems of the body, are the first to form. At the end of the third week, the embryo is about two millimeters long and the blood vessels and alimentary canal have begun to develop. By the end of the fourth week, all major organs have begun to develop and the heart beats for the first time."

Hate to say it, but this line of reasoning is why you must be a liberal.

For some reason, liberals seem to have a very difficult time zooming out to see a much bigger picture.

You're describing what scientists know - not what they don't know.

It's more about what they don't know. For instance, they don't know why cells begin to divide on their own after conception.

Neither could they recreate that in any lab from scratch.

A woman getting an abortion pre-1973 is breaking the law. A woman protesting against the law is not breaking the law. She is exercising her right to work to change an existing law. The law was in fact changed, by SCOTUS. What about this don't you get?
I never said a fetus is not alive, or a developing human. A z/e/f does not have rights. A woman has rights. A born baby has rights.
To give the z/e/f rights would then revoke rights from women. A woman is a born human being, a z/e/f is not born yet.
You people calling a fetus ZEF is ridiculous. Abortion isn't about a zygote, and you're wrong, a fetus does have rights. Rights you people support if you support RvW. Those rights are at viability. Obviously a fetus has been given rights then.

A woman shouldn't have a "right" to have her own flesh and blood child killed.

That is the RIGHT you people want to fight to keep, yet most of you agree she shouldn't have that right at viability. Most of you think a woman who kills her born children are monsters. None of you sees the senselessness of your contradicting views.

You can call it what you like, but God callse it eternal security. God doesn't want His children wondering where they will go, after they die. Many things have popped up over the years about life after death, abd many believe different things.
I buried enough family members to tell you, they go in the ground, but their souls go on forever, either in Heaven or in Hell "which is the county jail ",then the lake of fire forever seperated from God, or any friends or family.
I believe this NOW, even though I truly don't know where any of my dead family are.
You're full of nothing more than unprovable garbage and deceit. Why don't you go back to stating that Hindus worship cows so we can laugh at your idiocy?

Anyone who is a biblical scholar has a screw loose. Why do people waste their time on something that never happened?
Christ died for our sins? Really, how does that make sense? And why does he have so many names?
You'd think people who condoned killing the unborn and tolerated any kind of bad behavior as long as there was no morality involved wouldn't know a thing about biblical principles.

Yet, on another thread I used to be on, these people were the same ones who knew more about biblical principles and Jesus' teaching than any of us.

Odd, huh?

Only one man in history claimed to be the Son of God whose body was not found three days after he died.

It's a mystery the love of God and his grace towards us. Jesus came to help us get it right - love, forgive, mercy, compassion, etc.

When we want a way out of our own sinful natures, Jesus gives us that way. Unless you know it, you can't know it.

It's folly to nonbelievers. That's scriptural.

I was more talking about calling apples oranges, which you enjoy doing when deciding what the bible says and means. Perhaps you forgot when we talked about the bible stating the moon has "her" own light. No suprise that a fundie, bible thumper has selective memory.

You seemed to be upset that God allowed girls to get pregnant because they have a free will and can make personal choices.

Education would help reduce the perceived necessity of abortion. Sadly, most that are against abortion are also against manditory education.
I most definitely agree. However, the education that's lacking is the reality of abortion. Not the liberal political correctness in the education system that is destroying it.

See, the thing is...I used to be arrogant and prideful just like you apparently are now. I used to think it was all a bunch of hooey just like you apparently do now.

Truthfully, I still have to work on humbleness at times when it comes to dealing with political correctness and its poison and those who spread it. But I apologize if it comes across as arrogance. It isn't meant to.

These are truly trying times, aren't they?

If I was to pin a label on myself - it would be a moderate, but why that would matter to you is a mystery.

What bigger picture? Frozen embryos are not science fiction. It's only a matter of time before artificial wombs will be the wave of the future. That would certainly effectively eliminate any reason for voluntarily aborting.

What cause would nosy parkers pursue next?
