Suspiciously shaped tumor. Consider
With all due respect, a thinking person ought to know that an appeal to emotion such as this one has no place in rational discourse.

"If you want the world to be a better place, look at yourself and make the change.... "

SO instead of blind conformity with your compatriots (which I'm not accusing you specifically of), think yourself and reconsider everything, down to the most basic. That is the only way things get better.

Well I'm using my frontal lobe in conjunction with my hippocampus... I don't know why you accuse me of non-thinking.

You are the one blindly parroting the same tired line over and over without engaging in any thinking about the issue.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Do you honestly think I'm this big of a douche about an issue without thinking a lot about it?

Would you care to explain how this constitutes a response to what I said?

(Thank you for being so polite! Smile )

Anyway, I meant that people are talking a lot about thinking, and rationality, and all that. But as I've said, there is more to truth than fact. So, let's reconsider how we are faithful to fact, and we can discover the truth that comprises the facts. It is a fact that the baby has no brain. It is truth that the baby is alive. Bowing

Was that not good?

Not good enough. Your use of the word 'baby' is an appeal to emotion and it assumes what you are asserting.

You are asserting that a mindless, nerveless mass of cells is a baby, and using the term baby to support the assertion.

Hmm, mass of cells is again suspiciously shaped.

But you are missing, or dodging, the argument.

And you sir are missing your vision. Look at the illustrations I have provided you and tell me it's not a human.
