There are about 6 billion pieces of emprical evidence to suggest that a zygote represents a unique human individual.  Everyone who is or ever was was once a SPECIFIC zygote.

Uh, no. That's my point. Some people were once half a zygote. Some were once two zygotes.

Therefore, the fertilization event that forms a zygote cannot be the defining event of personhood.

How does the current population of the world relate to this observation?
