It is that simple.

No, it's not.

Before conception, since the cells that are involved in conception are themselves organic. They sure as hell ain't sacred though.

That seems arbitrary. Why not before the conception of the parents? Or their parents? Or their ...

Back to the first cell. Or before.

But I don't think that's what the OP was asking. Dodgy

Maybe the OP would like to clarify what he is asking.

Hello everyone, creationist here. Please answer this question. When does human life begin?
1 Before conception.
2 At conception.
3 After it is legal for a woman to have an abortion.

Btw this question has nothing to do with abortion debate in US. I'm having a discussion at a local forum with an atheist and he says that life begins before conception which sounds strange to me Blink

It's not entirely clear what you are asking. What do you mean by begin?

Ethically? Legally? Morally? Actually?

I never said an individual's life begins before conception, just that life is around before you are, including life that will eventually constitute you, the most immediately predating life being the sperm and egg you develop from.

Clarify "life begin" - it is too vague.

However, I'll take a stab at it. Two, actually.

Life began once. Everything alive today came from living things which came from living things which ... which came from the first living thing about 3.5 billion years ago.

Or, if you mean when does a new human being come into existence, then that would not be until a fetus has a brain and nervous system.
