    Science knows with absolute certainty what religious superstition relies on ancient mythology of primitive tribes to guess about.


    No human LIFE does NOT begin at feritlization, since the sperm that does the fertilizing is already alive (and of the human species, ergo: human life, and the egg being fertilized was also human life long before that.


    The issue is NOT about when human LIFE begins (unless you are prepared to present your plan for outlawing any death of any sperm or egg ever), but when it becomes a human person.


    If the issue is human LIFE, then…
    Menstruation is murder;
    Masturbation is genocide.

    Nonsense. It has nothing to do with belief in god, especially if you believe in the Judeo-Christian Bible, since the Bible is 100% pro-choice.

    The issue is not about when human life BEGINS but when human LIFE becomes a human PERSON.


    Human life DOES NOT begin at fertilization.
    The human egg cell and sperm cell were already alive and of the human species (ergo: human life) long before that.


    Clinical cessation of human LIFE is when measurable EEG brain waves cease, at which point organs and tissue can be removed and donated (not sold).


    The inverse of that — the onset of measurable brain waves, which does not occur until about 24-25 weeks, middle of the second trimester —cannot be considered a living human person. According to the CDC, fewer than 1% of abortions occur after that point, and ALL of them for reasons of severe medical emergency.

    The first traffic light was in London in 1868 for street traffic outside of Parliament.
    .
    The first traffic light specifically designed for automobile traffice was by a police officer in Salt Lake City in 1912.

    Faith is believing in something with zero evidence.
    Fact is recognizing and accepting reality based on evidence.
    .
    Science vs superstition = fact vs faith

    The “connexion” is not causal; it is explanatory.
    .
    Because you do not know what battles or difficulties or challenges others are enduring, cut them a bit of slack.
    .
    Be kind, not because it is what they deserve, but because it is who YOU deserve to be.

    For so many years I wondered how Germany, one of the most advanced industrial civilizations of its time, could have been taken over by a crazed, lunatic, extremist madman.
    .
    The present election cycle has opened my eyes as to how such a thing could occur.
    .
    Will the United States rise above what the German society acquiesced to?

    Don’t forget disabled people.
    Don’t forget prisoners of war (President Donald likes people that weren’t captured, even though he was a draft dodger and no one in the Trump lineage has ever served).


    I don’t want to be one of those that plays the “Hitler card” too flippantly (Trump is actually more similar to Mussolini), and I’m not saying “The Donald” Trump would make the leap from mass deportations to mass genocide but, hey, dehumanizing targeted minorities, mass deportations, building walls, silencing journalists, promising to make the trains run on time….
    Where have I heard all that before?


    We don’t have to play the “Hitler card.” “The Donald” already played the “Trump Card.”


    When the stepsister of Anne Frank, who does not make such comparisons lightly, comes out and warns about the similarities between Trump and Hitler, then the wolf is really there and it is not “crying wolf” or “playing the Hitler card” — it is now a matter of staring down the dangerous, growling beast and taking action to stop it.

    The list was meant to provide some notable examples, and did not claim to be exhaustive.
    It would take volumes to try to compile all the examples of RADICAL CHRISTIAN TERRORISM, from ancient times to the modern day.

    I also don’t believe a word of it, any more than any other ancient myths and legends, but actually Jesus went way beyond just the Ten Commands. According to the Bible legends, right in the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5:17-18) he reportedly said that not one dot or one iota of the Law of Moses would be changed or abrogated in any way until “heaven and earth pass away” and “all things are fulfilled.”
    .
    Have heaven and earth passed away?
    Have all things been fulfilled? All the end times prophecies?
