Re: to anyone ('cept greta & veg)

What a pregnant woman carries: Is it a person? When does it become a person? If it's a person, shouldn't it be accorded the same consideration as any other person? How many fucking times has this already been replied to? Once, by me. Actually, twice by me. The first was before the questions were sp...

Re: You never happened.

Descartes said '' I think therefore I am'' I AM doesn't need to think to be I AM ...I AM still IS with or without thought present. . I would invite you to consider: AM doesn’t need to think to be AM … AM still IS with or without thought present. I AM requires thought to be I AM, because I is a thou...

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

In fact, if any of you ideologues stopped to think for a second you'd realise that infants and toddlers too are not truly human either, being less capable of reason than your dog or the cow you eat. They are potentially human but, then again we already have too many. When is an adult person not tru...

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

Of course it's not a person. Persons are persons. Foetuses are foetuses - different things. Is every sperm truly sacred? Every sperm needs an egg to become a person. The sperm romantically says to the egg, you complete me by making me more than what I was, even though I was the strongest back in th...

An ice cold watermelon on a hot summer evening after a day of sunburn was a big treat. The produce stand up on the hill had them floating in a big tub of ice water, fat green blimps floating with icebergs. Old timers warned the youngsters about the dangers of swallowing watermelon seeds.

Re: Poetry here.

I've know the name V Williams for 30 yrs or so, but never stumbled upon his works until this one around 6 months ago. I first heard him with this, which is still a favorite. The violin soloist in this recording, the one that I first heard, is a prodigy. The end is a subtle leading into stillness. P...

Re: greta, veg, anyone

What a pregnant woman carries: is it a person? When does it become a person? If it's a person, shouldn't it be accorded the same consideration as any other person? As spokesman for this nebulous "anyone": Yes. A person is a person at all stages of human development after human conception. Human con...

Re: "It's alive, we must save it!"

Then again ... do people in Alabama believe in DNA or do they think it's just another science-y plot to subvert the Divine Human? Nothing so fancy. The legal issue is state’s rights. The governor of Alabama signed the legislation making abortion illegal in Alabama, in an attempt to force the princi...

Re: "It's alive, we must save it!"

More like: is it a person? When does it become a person? If it's a person, shouldn't it be accorded the same consideration as any other person? The topic has turned into an inquiry that seeks to find the ethical consistency that allows for killing a human outside the womb, and not killing a human i...

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

The question has been raised as to when life begins. Do you think that life begins when the heartbeat is detected, when the heartbeat begins but is undetected, when the baby is out of the mother, or at some other time, such as the moment of conception? How do you manage to get around with the weigh...
