That an Embryo Has a Soul is Stupid
our inner experiences consist of reproductions and combinations
of sensory impressions, the concept of a soul without a body
seems to me to be empty and devoid of meaning." ... Albert
that a zygote is a human being.
Let us examine the facts.
animation just as other animals and insects do.
However, humans have developed speech beyond what any
other living creature has done.
The quality of speech is what has driven the human race
to become dominant among living things in the world.
evolution has developed emotions such as fear, love and anger.
Our enlarged brains have seen humans die, and because
dead people don't come back, our emotions, especially of love
for family and self, don't want to fathom the truth that dead
people are dead forever.
Dead means dead.
There is no evidence of anyone, not even Jesus Christ,
returning from the dead. Beliefs
don't count, only evidence counts. We
have people who doctors believed were dead because they
couldn't get a pulse, but did revive.
This only means they weren't dead because the body has
remarkable resiliency. However,
if you sever the head of a person, I will guarantee that they
will never revive. Death
comes when all body functions cease, and remain that way for a
period of time. When
corruption begins, you can state factually that the person is
dead. We have had
people drown in an icy lake and revive an hour later.
This is not a miracle or a return from the dead.
It is a case of us learning how life can be preserved by
reducing the body's temperature.
It is not a miracle, it is science.
Turning now to the
debate over stem cell research, Christians don't want
scientists to use embryonic stem cells in their research.
Why, because the Christians believe that a fertilized
woman's egg is a complete human being.
Lets now deal with facts and not beliefs.
The embryonic stem cells that scientist want to use are
not embryos taken from the womb of a woman.
They are female eggs that have been fertilized in a Petri
dish. The import of
this is that the fertilized egg will never become a human unless
and until it is implanted in a woman's womb.
So, without the intervention of a doctor, none of these
embryos will ever be humans.
When a female egg is fertilized with a male sperm, it is
called a Zygote. Christians
believe that a Zygote is a human being or has the potential of
becoming a human being, and therefore is entitled to all the
rights of a fully born human.
A Zygote has no brain, no eyes, no limbs, no heart, no
lungs, no arms or legs. In
fact, it has nothing that we would recognize as a human.
So why do Christians continue to want to consider a
Zygote as a human? Because
they say it has a soul given by God, and that to destroy this
Zygote is to commit murder.
Does a Zygote really have a soul and does it exist for
There is absolutely no evidence that an animated human
has a soul or that such a soul exists for all eternity.
I want to quote an idiot to show you just how humans
think of themselves (read "soul").
existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall
exist till the end of time, for my being has no end." -Kahlil
Gibran, "Anthem of Humanity"
yo-yo have any proof of what he is saying?
There is no evidence, no not one scintilla that he has a
soul that will exists beyond his death, yet he makes the
unfounded statement that he will exist till the end of time.
Does time end? Does
this idiot have any evidence that time will end?
Albert Einstein has proven that time and space affect one
another and that time can be relative.
Time is not an absolute, but again, mere mortals don't
Animals such as dogs, cats, horses, elephants, etc., all
have animation. They
also have emotions just as do humans.
Yet, Christians don't believe that animals have souls
now or after death. As
an aside I want to relate two true stories.
An outdoorsman in Wyoming spotted an Eagle's nest high
on the side of a mesa. He
waited for the mother eagle to leave the nest and he decided to
climb up the hill to photograph the baby eaglets.
When he was about 15 feet from the nest, the mother eagle
nearly killed the guy before he could get down off the mesa.
The mother eagle was ferocious in protecting her young.
story happened in Denver when a young mother who was on a
mind-bending illegal drug, deliberately drowned her own baby in
a bathtub. Eagles
don't take drugs. And
Christians will tell you that the eagle has no soul, but the
baby-killer does. I
submit that neither has a soul, and certainly none that will
exist after death. What
we have is animated life—a life that ends with death.
When the embryo used by scientists in stem cell research
reaches day five, it has developed into about 150 cells, thirty
of which are stem cells. Those
stem cells can be kept alive and replicating themselves for a
long time. This
becomes what is known as a "cell line."
This cell line can be used for scientific research in
curing horrible diseased that God has bestowed on the human
race. These stem
cells can never become humans without the intervention of man.
Even God is powerless to act to make them into humans
with eternal souls. Yet,
Christians believe these stem cells and cell lines are humans.
Their belief is totally without foundation, facts or
beliefs are nothing more than mindless dogma put out by churches
to indoctrinate their adherents.
Christians are really fearful that man is going to create
life, thus destroying the Christian myth that all life comes
from God. Basically,
Christians are in fear that science will prove they do not have
immortal souls and that they aren't going to live after death
by going to heaven, another mythical place.
They aren't going to heaven or hell, and when they die,
There are millions of fertilized eggs that are aborted on
a daily basis. Women
get impregnated and nature decides something is not right and
that the embryo should destroyed.
This happens and women are not even aware of it.
Also, some women who are further along in their
pregnancies also have involuntary abortions.
Christians ignore this killing of embryos.
Their simple stupid answer it that it is God's will.
If there were a God, how could any Christian tell anyone
what God will is? Does
God have to think?
Zygotes and Blastocysts that exist because of in vitro
fertilization (fertilization not in a woman's womb) are not
humans. They have
no senses and none of the attributes of a human. The
eggs are fertilized by scientists who implant a sperm into the
egg. Eggs are not
humans either, and women slough off eggs on a monthly basis with
their menstrual periods. Since
many of the eggs go down the toilet or into a Kotex and then
into the trash, there is no need to protest against scientist
who get them from women and use them for scientific research. In
the end, religion and its adherents have always stood against
science, but fully partake in its benefits when it suits their
own health needs. Christians
