Richard Dawkins tweets on abortion: ‘any fetus is less human than an adult pig’

Mar 16, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: freerepublic.com

It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter. On Wednesday, Richard Dawkins, a vocal proponent of atheism and the author of The God Delusion, posted a provocative tweet about abortion: With respect to those meanings of "human" that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig.

The fat was in the water. And the water was among the blood.

We're you at the crucifixion with a lab kit? The passage is showing a miracle that blood fell showing he has a human body and pure water showing he was divine.

Once you try to write this fan fiction explaining away the miracle you have p!ssed all over the story reducing it.

"The passage is showing a miracle that blood fell showing he has a human body and pure water showing he was divine."

Just like christians you are implying verses in the Bible were meant to symbolize things nothing to do with it. Though you probably didn't do it on purpose, you probably just assumed that is how the Bible is meant to be read as, because how christians falsely present the Bible.

That passage in a poetic meaning is the only way it makes sense. Look at the passages saying wash yourself clean in the blood of the lamb as that is another indicator.

You don't stab someone and pure clean water come out. I retired from a hospital, so your so called science reason for the passage falls flat.

Blood carries stuff, including water that contains fat, around the body.

It doesn't necessarily mean it was refering to the verse about washing yourself with human blood(It sounds good anyway, though, washing yourself with human blood).

It was explicit.

Most of the bible is explicit, is that why you haven't read most of it? Not allowed to read anything NC-17 yet?

The Bible isn't that explicit. There is rape in the Bible. I have read the Bible quite a bit. It mentions lots of "her slept with her and had a baby", and whatever, but it doesn't mention things like "semen went through her vagina", though it did mention one time about a man dropping his seed. And plenty of circumcision.

I don't recall that phrase from anywhere in the Bible. Where did you find it?

Yahweh/Jesus ordered several rapes of non believers in the OT. Raping a believer costs you 50 shekels and you have to marry the girl so you can rape her over and over again.

Just what will 50 shekels get you? In other passages we see 30 shekels is enough to eat well on for 2 days.

So the guy has to pay the amount of day 3 days of meals for raping her. For him a great deal as now she has to cook clean and give him sex whenever he so demands or she can be punished by Jewish law!

Yahweh/Jesus is wacky like that.

It talks about rape and incest, that makes it explicit. You don't think kids know what rape and incest is? Are you daft?

I never claimed my mother loved me, of course I don't care enough either way really. Anyhow, no, most animals can alter their genders as needed, though not willfully, it's an evolved trait. The most fit, and most populous species, are capable of asexual reproduction, as I said, the few species, like ours, incapable of "switching" things about like that are flukes, if not for other traits, we'd never had made it out of the trees.
There is no amount of surgery that will, or can, change you from a man into a woman. Cosmetic surgery does not alter your genes.

Religitards think it is OK that the bible justifies rape, slavery, murder and paedophilia, just so long as it doesn't swear.

Aw, did someone tell you the truth in real life and it upset you so much that now you have to harass people online in a failed attempt to boost your completely destroyed ego? You know you're religion is a lie, thus, you have to defend it using any tactic you can, including bullying, even if that tactic fails.

They think it's okay to commit rape, murder, pedophilia, and slavery as long as they're not doing it to other christians.
