Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

Awww....come on! You promised me "absolute proof." How could I have promised you anything? My initial response was to sculptor. So it was something you thought would only be believed, and only ought to be believed, by Sculptor? It wasn't objectively true? Just rhetoric? You say "You promised me "ab...

I disagree, but am not inclined to dispute self-assessments. If you truly see yourself as no better than a :cat:, :dog:, or :cow:, I'm not gonna fight you on it.
That must be a relief to everyone!

I haven't heard Wunderlich before. He certainly has a glorious voice. Why do these people always seem to die so young?
I guess it's a case of whom the gods love!

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

There can be no "proven purpose" to life. Absolutely right especially the 'proven' part. Oh...terrific! :D I had almost despaired of anyone even trying to defend such a claim. But now, somebody is claiming incontrovertible proof -- not just "right," but " absolutely right." Wonderful! I can't wait ...

Re: Music

Hah! For an instant I thought it was Andy Williams and was 'what?'. Andy Williams, really?? Fritz Wunderlich is regarded as one of the greatest tenors of the 20th century. It was a major tragedy that he died at the age of 36. There isn't a single voice like his around today. https://www.youtube.com...

Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

There can be no "proven purpose" to life. Absolutely right especially the 'proven' part. There never was or will be a defined purpose to life as if there were some preexisting paradigm which envelops the living with a meaning external to themselves. There never was a manual or roadmap which defines...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

I am surprised that you do not recognise the quote: "Ask not for whom the bell tolls", I think that most adults in the Western world are familiar with it. I've read your post a couple of times. It was informative, well-expressed and the subject is interesting. You say you're surprised that I do not...
