Then how in the world can you claim that "human life does not begin at conception?"  What is your OPINION based on?  And if science can't answer this question then biology seems rather meaningless, doesn't it?

One more time, Thordaddy, and then I'm done with this, with my opinion about the stupidity of this argument if anything reinforced.

Question: Is a fertilized egg alive?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Is an unfertilized egg alive?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Is a sperm cell alive?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Does life begin at conception?

Answer: No.

Question: Is the question as to when life begins meaningful?

Answer: No.

Question: Is the answer as to when life begins meaningful?

Answer: No.

We've gone around on this question about a million times so far, and every time you've asked it, I've given you the exact same answer. Can you think of any conceivable reason why you should ever, ever ask me this question again, Thordaddy? Because I sure can't.

Only if you think kinematics is meaningless because it can't give you the magnitude and direction of love, or mechanics is meaningless because it can't give you a value for the moral power of virginity.
