Ah, the slippery slope. Kind of like when fundies think life begins at the conception of sexual congress because life is all preordained by god. Besides, what is being looked at now is the removal of a SINGLE cell to clone.

Well, the function of said cells, Mr. Freak, is markedly different. You know, being that our cells and their differing functions give us sentience, the quality that sets humans apart from all other known forms of life.
You know, I'm sure people would jump on the stem cell research bandwagon in a second if it were animals dying, but we HAAAVE to protect the precious non-aware cells. The animals get it worse than we do, really.

No, no, it's not. The embryo can spontaneously abort... at the fertilisation stage, it can split into twins or two can merge into a chimera.

Why, oh why, oh WHY are they debating this on a Naruto forum?

\"you are several trillion cells but its the same\"
Bzzt, wrong! Thanks for playing!
Just like you can make a very small atomic bomb by using a fraction of the amount of uranium as they use in a regular sized one...

And yet Christians (who are generally conservative, 'pro-life') are usually in favour of the death penalty, and atheists (who are generally liberal, pro choice) are usually against the death penalty. Hmmm

\". . . but its late and i just got home from work and am not thinking to clearly right now\"
That explains your post.

You mean the embryos that are sitting in a freezer somewhere because the original doner parents didn't sign the release form to allow them to be implanted in other couples, so they're going to rot in that freezer until they're unusable and then be discarded? Those embryos?
8/25/2006 2:29:20 PM
Yeah, yeah, yeah. You would give some evidence but blah, blah, blah. Sure. I think it's more like \"I would give some evidence but I don't have any.\"
I'd be willing to bet you don't think clearly very often.
8/25/2006 3:28:12 PM
10-1 this guy favors the death penalty...

And if they let people own dogs and cats as pets, next thing you know, it'll be legal to own a gorilla as a pet! And after that, they'll bring back slavery!!!1!!!!oneone!eleventy-one!

Napoleon the Clown: Of course, we already know that. Haven't you ever seen the old Planet of the Apes movies?

Is your period key broken?

Always the old \"let's stop this now before it leads to ...\". Let's stop gays, because next thing there'll be beastialty and pedophilia. Let's stop making stem cells out of embryos because next thing they'll be killing adults.
8/25/2006 7:34:04 PM
That's the first time I've ever heard a fundie actually come out and admit this...
\"...am not thinking to clearly right now.\"
8/25/2006 7:49:39 PM
It's a slippery slope...into a complete lack of punctuation!
8/25/2006 10:08:26 PM
No shit you're not thinking clearly right now.
This 'next step' you you have 'evidence' for - forget the evidence, we know there is none, but at the very least tell us what the 'next step' is.
Oh and you're way off with your 'several trillion'. You have about 100 trillion organisms living on and in you at any given point of time. - And while you could argue you consist entirely of shit, you'd still have to scale up with that.

What has Narute done to deserve all the idiots??
8/26/2006 4:47:16 PM
I wish we could make it illegal for all Xian fundies to take any medical aid wich are a result from stemcell research! Let \"God\" heal them... :)
8/26/2006 4:55:47 PM
I'm surprised Xian fundies accept any sort of medical treatment whatsoever (or even pray to be healed). As it's clearly god's will that they became ill in the first place, he's probably just helping them reach heaven a bit sooner.

I'm assuming his work has nothing to do with grammar, science, or logic.
