Do you recognize a difference between "human" the adjective, and "a human" the noun?

Yes. For example human is an adjective when I say a human fetus is part of the human life cycle.

That means is part of the life cycle of a human.

Have just started to play Silent Hill 4 again (I started to some years back but then my PlayStation 2 stopped working so I couldn't finish). This song is now kind of stuck in my head after I played the subway level at the start of the game:



See now I want to get my PS2 out. I dont even know where it is now.

So even though the DNA says it's a tree, it's not a tree?  Well who can argue with that logic?

1. Correct.  Just because my blood cells have my DNA, that does not make them me.  Nor does it make them people.

2. Because you addressed only that one, tiny point, am I to take it you agree with the rest of my post?

3. I don't really want to call you a dumbass, but christ on a stick, man, you're not giving me many options with that kind of reply.

No your blood is not you.  It's part of you.  That's  not evidence a human fetus is not human.  It's certainly not chicken.
 
I didn't reply to your other point because it's a straw man.  You're the only one that's mentioned a fetus having rights.  Don't know what that's all about.

Sexuality, Reproduction, & Abortion / Re: does promiscuity cause suffering?
« Last post by jaimehlers on Yesterday at 03:56:53 PM »
I think the original point that The Gawd was trying to make was that he feels better when he's sexually active, and that due to him having had multiple sexual partners, he would be considered promiscuous using most definitions of the word.  In other words, the number of sexual partners has no bearing on how he feels - he would still feel better being sexually active than not, even if he had only one partner.

This point is in danger of getting buried under irrelevancies, such as the comment that he might be suffering from withdrawal.  Which, I might add, is ill informed at best, and should be avoided due to the impossibility of showing that it's true.

Conspiracy theory I know but old republicans occurred to me they wanted to start the second coming by invading ME, prophesy etc.

Hey they are old and exploited all the resources they could, the next logical step heaven, Apocalypse etc.

I had to explain to a friend last week that our laws in the US are not based on the bible or Judeo/Christian values. This law here in the OP is what it would be like if our laws were based on Judeo/Christian morals.
if they were based on Christian biblical rules would the US be the giant war machine it is? Thought shall not kill and all..... as far as the OP,its hard to believe that there is still bronze age treatment of 50% of a population anywhere on this planet in the 21st century....... although Trump and his chronies seem hell bent on taking the American people back a few hundred years at least.

Chatter / kava
« Last post by velkyn on Yesterday at 03:25:27 PM »
I'm trying kava again to see how it does with my anxiety issues.  It seems to be working very well and it's been a while since I've felt this good.  The first time I tried kava, it didn't seem to work at all.   The stuff I got now, Kava King Vanuatu Blend, is described as "instant" so it is very powdered.   

anyone else use it?
