This is one of the most amazing videos I’ve seen in a long time. So cool!

Can you spot the time on the video when a new human life is created? Post your answer and thoughts in the comment section! (video below)

When the sperm unites with the egg in the fallopian tube, 1:26 into the video, I think. Before it travels down the fallopian tube and into the uterus, before implantation into the wall of the uterus.
Beautiful!

So “a new human life”=”full compliment of DNA”, whatever dbond. That means there are thousands of new human lives in the bowl every time I take a dump.

I think, “thinkforyourself”, what you just left as a comment should have been left in the “bowl”. Nonsense.

HI thinkforyourself.

“a new human life”=”full compliment of DNA”

Where did you see this? dbond does not make this claim in his post nor does the video make this claim. Indeed, sometimes one does hear pro-lifers use the fact that the embryo has its own unique set of DNA to argue that it is a human being, but please note that having unique and distinct DNA is a necessary condition for a human life, not a sufficient one. So many people confuse necessary and sufficient conditions, and it is quite frustrating.

If you would like to discuss the science behind human embryology, we are happy to do so. If you have a theory about what makes human life, then I am also happy to discuss it, but the argument you gave above is a great example of a straw man.

In fact, thinkforyourself, I’ve been thinking about your name and considering whether or not I should indeed follow your orders and “think for myself.” After thinking very carefully about whether or not I should think for myself, I have decided that the answer is “no, I should not think for myself.” Thus, by encouraging me to think for myself, you have encouraged me to not think for myself. Thanks!
