You cannot logically critic scientific theories (first evolution, and now the big bang) when you don't understand them. Stop trying, your ignorance is not the basis for a debate on the subject.
Your religious conversion is irrelevant to science.

Your refusal to refute my assertions, and your need to fall back on personal insults toward random folks you've never met, are duly noted.

Got anything to say, or are you just here for the smear?

You named your unborn son Aaron. You're equating him to your dead puppies? OMG! You are completely disconnected from reality. You're a cold mother. My guess would be that your lineage consist of Godless,cold,heartless,disconn ected family. What else could be to blame but that. <quoted text>
Um, I have nfi how you come up with naming dead fetuses, puppies and kittens means the fetuses are equivalent to puppies and kittens. Although there are commonalities between all three, there are also differences. So, imo, since you came up with this crock of sh*t, you're the one who's "cold". Therefore, "my guess would be that your lineage consist of Godless,cold,heartless,disconn ected family. What else could be to blame but that?"

Do you even know what the spacer bar is for on your keypad? My guess is No.

What a twister you are. I do not agree "referring to a preborn baby as a "useless wad of cells" is just fine..." I said I don't control how others choose to express themselves. You want to choose to be a hypocrite and use ad hominem attacks instead of actually debating, go ahead. You just have nothing worthwhile to contribute to the conversation while you do so.
See how that works, oh disrespectful one?

Interesting how your son was a "fantasy" ... excepting his gender.

Along with his gender, he had a complete DNA profile for eye color, natural temperament, etc.

At least you acknowledge that you promote the killing of boys and girls.

You have things backward. The C-Section was forced upon her against her wishes. She chose to treat the cancer, but the hospital wouldn't let her while pregnant. Her wishes were ignored even though, posthumously, the higher court determined her bodily autonomy was paramount over the fetus'.
"At age thirteen, Angela Stoner was diagnosed with a rare and usually fatal form of cancer, Ewing's sarcoma. Despite numerous doctors warning her of imminent death she survived. After years of chemotherapy and radiation therapy she was declared to be in remission. She got married and sought her doctor's advice on whether she could become pregnant with her health history. Since her cancer had been in remission for several years, her obstetrician said to go ahead and get pregnant, which she did.
In 1987, when Carder was twenty-six weeks pregnant, her cancer was discovered to have recurred and metastasized to her lung. Her initial plan was to begin radiation and chemotherapy immediately as she had been through too much already not to at least try to prolong her life, regardless of risks to the fetus. The doctors at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. immediately gave Carder only days to live and disagreed with her choice to put her own life ahead of that of the fetus. Instead of treating the cancer, they ignored her protests and inserted an oral feeding tube into her and administered sedatives in an effort to delay her death and increase her fetus' chance of continued development."

Great, you tell me I got it backwards with you having the benefit of the additional information NOT included in your original post.
Go back and read your original post and link. All that is indicated in there is that she was 26 weeks pregnant, doctors had determined that her death was close, her family didn't want the section because it might shorten her life (no explanation how a c-section could shorten the life of someone whose death was already imminent) and that the hospital was seeking a c-section in order to save her potentially viable fetus. Nothing about the fact that she intended to undergo chemo to possibly save or prolong her life or that chemo at that point was even an option.....NOTHING.
Based on your original post my questions and comments were valid and I had nothing backward.
In hindsight given the additional info you provided she certainly should have been given potential life saving chemo. So there goes your theory that all PL were pleased with the decision and outcome.
Never ASS-ume.

You chose to post an opinion before copying and pasting the name into your search bar. Don't blame me because you couldn't decipher the forced C-Section from the first paragraph of what I'd posted. It's in there. Nobody fooled you. Except yourself maybe. Or you are just blaming me for your ineptness.

<quoted text>But you're not accounting for Higgs' Bosons.
No indeed not "grump," and the reason for that is simply that I don't understand the Higgs Boson branch well enough to adequately comment on it. I've read the articles in Time magazine, National Geographic, Smithsonian, and articles online and, quite frankly, the more I read, the more I find myself scratching my head. Theoretical physics and particle physics are branches of scientific inquiry that I've not studied. Yeah I've read a couple of books like, "God and the New Physics," or "Quark and the Jaguar," but these are subjects that really require a formal method of study and, more importantly, a solid understanding of the foundation material.
My math is fairly dreadful so, even though I made it through Physics, it was clear to me that I wasn't progressing much further along that avenue--heck even the Wikipedia entry for the Higgs Boson has enough eye-watering formulas to make my head turn to clay;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higgs_boson
What I was trying to illustrate for "Gtown," was that there are methods that scientists use to gauge the age of the Earth, and the Universe that aren't simply "guesstimations." There's an orderly process that they teach in basic Astronomy, that this isn't some mystical sort of "soothsaying," or blind stabbing randomly in the dark...

Happy New Year "Grump!"

<quoted text>Seriously RC, I'm going to ask you because I know you will give me a thoughtful, honest answer.
I go to work every day to support my wife and kids, I have been hurt physically at times but I keep on. Many in my trade have lost fingers, limbs, and some their lives, but its part of being a man, a husband, a father, I feel it's my responsibility/obligation. I would never hurt or kill any potential life to this family to make it easier for me. Yeah, I understand that I could never endure the temporary inconveniences and pain of pregnancy, as I could never understand the true beauty and majesty of giving birth to something that truly grew from me and within me. And I do understand that there are times when abortion is a necessary option, but is there ever a time when abortion is ONLY about the woman's personal interests? Is there ever a time that the woman considers that fetus just a "worthless wad of cells"? Is there ever a time that a woman aborts without considering the father or the potential child? As a man, and considering some of these womenÂ’s posts here, I question how they could ever even attempt to insult people like me, you or your husband's view that life is precious and must be considered as such.
okay, I'll try. In the 'past' when a country went to war, wasn't the man (majority of the fighter's were men,,, c'mon people) putting his life at risk? Don't men all over the world put their lives at risk for their families, their countries? Women too, of course, but let's be reasonable, more men.

As far as pain goes? Really? Okay, labour hurts A LOT, so what? So do a lot of things,,, like a limb getting shot off etc etc etc...(I'd pick labour) At standing (and yes, I realize I'll get a beat down for this) there are more men in 'dangerous' work than women. From 'our' countries perspective, we choose our own vocation (for the most part) and then we can get into the advantage/disadvantage argument, but let's move from that for a bit. Men put their lives at risk for a whole lot of things... women too, but again, more men. Life's a risk, and no one gets out alive!

Men's rights? This is not a secret from me. I defiantly think they should have more. How? beats me. To what extent? Again,((shrug))

It's a heartless woman that won't include 'him' in her decision, and if the woman is dealing with a man like you with your perspective, mind set, YOU should not be dismissed, especially with the level of involvement a man like you would be willing to commit. 100% if need be imo. And not to have you toot your own horn too much (lol), there are a lot of men like you. My bro is one of them. I know it would break his heart if that happened to him, but then there's the argument he knew what he was doing... blah blah blah.... but that doesn't change his 'feelings'. Then there is the alternative giving the men equal say... Holy Sh*t.... complicated, and beats the hell out of me.

And as far as feeling a 'life' growing inside me, I can go through it, but you can't? Yes, awe inspiring, incredible, beautiful,.... you won't ever know what that's like, but you kinda already do. You went through the same emotions as your wife. Mentally? Same. Physically? ummmm errrrrrr coughcough

What's it like to be kicked in the balls? Nah,,,, not really that curious... nevermind
