If I was talented I'd write you a song about my views of personhood in conjunction with blastoceles, neural crests, and the potential for twinning, but i'm not. So I wont.

More like 1/2 a person, minus the mitochondria.
Yeah, I know. When I'm presenting this theory, I'm doing it tongue-in-cheek --- I don't actually think that sperm are little people. I don't think it's "half" a person either, because even after joined to a female sex cell it still becomes only a cell and then a cluster of cells. While people have the "genetic make up" of a cell, no one cell is a person. In fact, "personhood" comes much later in my opinion.

Your beliefs do not make you a better person, your behavior does.

I don't know how many times I've had to tell my wife, "Not the ball sack", when she's pulling me off beating the hell out of my next door neighbor.
No one seems to understand the divine wisdom of the bible like a piss-drunk crazed lunatic discussing football.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
