False.
The fetal nervous system is detected to exist as early as 7 weeks. They have eyes, and tongues and cranial nerves.

The fetal heart rate has been shown to react to external stimuli from as early as 8 weeks. How on earth can the fetus feel anything if they have no nerves?

Yep. Fetal anesthesia. Thats what I said.
They also offer it to mothers having abortions.
Are you repeating me for echo effect?

No. I mean every word of what I say.
Disingenuousness is for gutless wonders who are too Censored scared to say what they think or who care about popularity.

There is no functioning nervous system until at least 20 weeks, so a nerve being present at 7 weeks is meaningless.
Please cite a source for the use of fetal anesthesia for abortions.

Your presentation of disparate factoids shows incredible ignorance or disingenuous intent. Which is it?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I would counter that God is a liar, and is actually quite malicious. The fact that Satan is described as The Deceiver in the Bible is done just to give a scapegoat so that people will have someone else to blame. Then, God tells us he's smarter than us and that there's a reason he allows bad stuff to happen (but he won't tell us what it is). But, we know he's telling the truth and not lying because... the Bible says so. Go ahead. Prove to me that God isn't actually a malicious liar, and that Satan has nothing to do with it.

See? I can make non-falsifiable assertions, too.
