<quoted text>Only a female fetus is a woman, as are all other female humans. Adolescents are not called young adults. Young adults are called young adults.
A young/prime adult, according to Erik Erikson's stages of human development, is generally a person in the age range of 20 to 40, whereas an adolescent is a person aging from 13 to 19, although definitions and opinions vary. The young adult stage in human development precedes middle adulthood. A person in the middle adulthood stage ages from 40 to 64.

Believing something that is imaginary to be true, especially when no evidence suggests it, is delusion. Believing in a god is a delusion.

Funny thing, I cannot accuse you of libel on this. But that is a completely different subject. So why did you ignore most of the definition? Because the rest, the bits that expand the definition for clarification, do not coincide with your pointless argument. You were wrong.

No, it's all demonstrably true. We understand delusion very well in psychological sciences, it's actually one of the more basic psychosis. Believing something is fact when no evidence suggests it is delusion, the very basic definition of delusion but delusion none-the-less. There is no evidence suggesting a god, thus, the assertion that the god is fact makes that belief a delusion.

It's a fact - religion is a proven delusion with no evidence for god.

Its believers are all liars, lying about god and disrespecting their fellow humans by choosing to lie to them and judging them based on no evidnece.

But you knew that already Lincoln - you're just a weak minded failed troll.

If children understand that beliefs should be substantiated with evidence, as opposed to tradition, authority, revelation or faith, they will automatically work out for themselves that they are atheists.

"religion is a proven delusion with no evidence for God"

If this was valid you would NOT need to post it so compulsively.
You post this over and over like a trained parrot :-)

Actually, this is the very reason many of them are leaving religion behind, they are asking for evidence now, religious leaders don't like that.

Religious parents prevent open discussion of beliefs to ensure proper brainwashing of the cult.

Leads to modern day stupidity as demonstrated by Lincoln - who NEVER questions the evidence behind is own cult beliefs.

It happens when they get older and realise that evidence is actually how the entire world works.

That's what happens when you lie to children about god - they get older, smarter and then proceed to regularly whip your a$$ on atheist forums online like this...

Clarification of what? Pointless how? The definition I provided shows that a woman is a female human of any age. Which is clarifying my opinion to be true. What makes you think I need to clarify your narrow minded, hatemongering opinions?

If your daughter was raped and told she had a 50-50 chance of not surviving carrying the rapist's child would you have her carry it?

Creationists? What is a creationist? Womb-Nazis? What is a womb-nazi?
A pro-lifer calling a pro-choicer a baby killer is tantamount to a pro-choicer calling a pro-lifer an anti-choicer, or a womb-Nazi etc. What makes you think you are the only ones that should be allowed to choose what you call people? Furthermore, since abortion does kill babies the term baby-killer is appropriate, while the term pro-choice is utter nonsense.
