According to the Bible, life begins when you start breathing, something that doesn't happen until you are born...

Genesis 2:7 - "Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."

Job 33:4 -"The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life."

Ezekiel 37: 5&6 - "Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. And I shall lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord."

vudukungfu: Walter Paisley: Do you know if any of these events might have been recorded and available for purchase?

Sure. I lost my original CD for the Condom Machine blues. and a lot of die hard nerds offered to sell me a cassette tape of my own song.

As for the Marc Bolan pic.
You can tell what religion he is.


I was hoping for something more official, but bootlegs can sometimes be cool. I just wish audio bootleggers would work with the performer instead of profiting off of another's work. Do the people trying to sell you your own work realize how rude this is?

RexTalionis: FLMountainMan: Meh.  As far as disinformation taught in classrooms goes, none of that is even top ten.

Off to go get a smallpox blanket, which is difficult for me because white people have grossly inferior spatial intelligence and, not being Oriental, I lack excellent organizational skills.  Luckily I can afford it because the Laffer Curve grants me great wealth.  Which I already had because of white privilege.

1) The smallpox incident happened and is a part of American history and is not disinformation.

2) I don't know of any school that teaches that white people are mentally inferior to Asians

3) Regarding the Laffer curve and the white privilege thing, that's just dumb.


1) That's great, and you will almost never see it mentioned in public school pretty much ever.


 Which was the point.

 Public school hopefully teaches you literacy (sometimes?), basic math, and the knowledge that there are things like history, science, art, and music in existence out there. Anything else is gravy and you should consider yourself lucky.

 And if you're trying to make informative fact based decisions on your public school history book.... well about that.

Oh, fark me. I feel dumber for having listened to that crap.

I tell my kids the truth: Sex feels good, but it hurts like hell emotionally if you do it when you are too young, or with the wrong person. There are risks, that can be mitigated, but never completely. If you decide to have sex with someone, please think it through first and make sure it's what YOU want, not the other person.

I also have taught my older daughters about different birth control options, how to use a condom, how NOT to use a condom (ie: storing it in a way that would lead to leaks or damage, not using teeth if you put it on with your mouth, making sure it is on the correct way before unrolling it, getting a new one if you touched the wrong side to the penis, etc.). I keep a fresh supply of condoms in the house, in the downstairs bathroom right beside the mudroom, where they could stop and get one and we'd never even know they came inside. I've explained that if they want to become sexually active, we need to go to the doctor and get a check-up and get birth control pills even if they use condoms.

I've taught them that mistakes happen, and you don't have to be ashamed of making one. And that love rarely lasts forever, but that is okay.

For my troubles, I have a 17 year old who came to me and openly talked to me about birth control, who ran into my room a few months ago to tell me she just had sex for the first time, and asked me questions about it, who is on birth control and is very open with me about what is going on. She had a break-up and the first thing she said after she finished sobbing was "I'm so glad I didn't think I was going to be with him forever".

My fourteen year old has been very open about her crushes and that she thinks she might prefer girls.

And my 12 year old son asks me questions about girls and biology and it not embarrassed to walk to the grocery store and pick up tampax for his sisters, so long as they give him $5 or drive him somewhere or some other consideration for his troubles.

The absolute bullshiat in this recording is just astounding. Kids don't respond to that. When I was a kid, we had some similarly craptacularly bad Xstian presentation about how our vaginas were like duct tape, and once you stuck the tape to something, it would hurt very badly to pull it off, and if you kept sticking it and ripping it off, it would eventually not stick anymore and we'd never find a man to love us. Oh, and AIDS is killing everybody and if you kiss you will get herpes and that if your breasts are fondled too much it can cause you to never feel your nipples again. (I only wish I was kidding). The abortion stuff was similar to this.

Thanks to that lovely presentation, and my mother's general inability to talk about anything like sex without making it a big production, I was very tight lipped about things and never asked questions. I just went to the health department after school and got birth control pills and condoms, and was regularly experiencing happy naked time with a wide assortment of male partners by the time I was 15.

I don't know why they can't just tell the kids that slutting it up is not the best idea, but if they decide it's worth the (accurately described) risk, here's how to go about it so you don't have to have the uncomfortable conversation with your doctor about why it burns when you pee.

Hell, show the kids pictures of a herpes outbreak, tell them the truth: that somewhere around 24% of people carry it and you never know who because many aren't symptomatic and it can be transmitted regardless of whether or not you see it/know about it, and that condoms suck at preventing it, but hey, here is what to look for before you allow that genitalia near yours or your mouth. I have a feeling that simple truth would be far more effective in getting them to think about what they are doing before hand than this complete and utter bullshiat.

That is ridiculously relevant. Euthanasia laws are about quality of life. A healthy person who wants to live this year, may be near death and in constant pain next year. Someone who may one day become enfeebled may want to have the option for being euthanized some day, even if his life today is largely bad ass.

Exactly. It isn't a fetus at conception. It's a zygote. Then it becomes an embryo. And then it becomes a fetus. And I'm pretty sure the troll I'm likely feeding wouldn't recognize any product of conception in real life (not as laughably incorrectly illustrated and modeled by far right wing anti-abortion groups) until close to 16 or 17 weeks.

I have zero problems getting pregnant, but a hell of a time staying pregnant. Due to my screwed up cervix and inhospitable uterus, I have unfortunately had, and seen the results of, 9 miscarriages at various rates of development. And trust me, none of them were anywhere near being a baby, as sad as I was to lose that potential for life.

Sticky Hands: RexTalionis: demarke: How often does an appendix sprout arms legs and a brain and pop out after nine months?

/That would be awesome if it were possible

It is possible. With a little help, of course, but it is possible. You remove the nucleus of an egg and take the deprogrammed egg (now lacking a nucleus and the nuclear DNA) and insert the nucleus from a cell removed from an appendix. The deprogrammed egg will take the appendix cell nucleus and reprogram it to repurpose the appendix cell nucleus into an egg cell nucleus. Give it a little shock and now it will start to divide.

This is how you create clones. This process is called a somatic cell nuclear transfer.

Has this finally passed into the realm of the actually possible as opposed to theoretically?
Last I heard it's still a bit too difficult.
It is something I have to consider in my overall positions, since I suspect that one day it's likely to work.
but I'm not sure what the implications would be, it would cause a lot of problems with how we presently identify individuals that's for damn sure.


As far as I understand it, the only technical limitation is the high failure rate. This is compounded with more complex organisms mor susceptible to failure. Dolly, for example, was the only one of nearly 300 cells to survive. (Thirty were implanted, 3 were born, and Dolly survived infancy).

Pocket Ninja: I'm not sure I understand the spit thing. Are we talking about drinking spit equivalent to an entire classroom (lets call that 25 people) spitting once into a bucket? Or are we talking about somehow draining all the spit from each person in the classroom, collecting that into some sort of spit trough, and drinking that? That's two entirely different prospects, right there, and I'd need to know which one I'm considering (as well as what the 8 people I'd be having sex with look like). There's always tradeoffs; sometimes they're worth it and sometimes they're not.


That's right, man. Life is full of choices.

Remember Dolly the sheep? Yeah, that's done through somatic cell nuclear transfer. And that was almost 20 years ago.

I do remember Dolly, and some dogs and other animals, I seem to remember there were several issues (beyond just ethics) with making it work with primates.  The one lab to claim success on human cloning turned out to be a fraud (the Raellians or something)  and I admit to not following it much since.

This is Tetra. It is the first cloned primate (in 1999).


Not quite. While a type of clone, it is not somatic cell transfer and and the method could not result in a pacreatic cell becoming a person.

Rather than being a clone like Dolly, Tetra was effectively an artificially induced identical twin (they split one embryo into multiple).

To clarify: nobody (largely) has any interest in killing infants, but many people are pro-choice. Nobody (largely) has any interest in killing middle aged people, but once life is no longer worth living, many people are pro choice on that as well.

Life is not the same over the continuum from gamete to last breath, and treating it all as precious is oversimplification.

I look at it like this: A woman has a right to choose what goes on in her body, up until the point of true viability. The baby has a right to live, from the point of viability until a time of it's choosing. Your body, your choice. You want an abortion? So long as that fetus hasn't reached a point where it can easily survive outside the womb without long term issues (that seems to be somewhere between 24 and 30 weeks, depending on the expert - and I have ZERO desire to argue that point), go for it. After that, as soon as that infant becomes an adult, it can choose to end it's own life if circumstances arise that make that a reasonable option (terminal illness, etc.). Seems like a reasonable approach to me.
 
2013-05-28 09:00:51 PM  
This hasn't been sufficiently addressed - the reason conservatives lie is because most of them are Christians, and conservative Christians have no morality or ethics that doesn't come from the bible. (As can be gleaned from their insistence that atheists can't have any morality or ethics.) And the bible says it's okay to lie if it benefits God. Since they also like to ignore parts of the bible they disagree with, they ignore the "fill the Earth" part of "multiply and fill the Earth" (Earth's been overpopulated for awhile now.) Thus, any lies that keep kids from using birth control is good in God's eyes.

Agreed. Then again, I think we should have to get licenses to vote. I think having to pass a derp test to make sure you aren't an extreme moron (regardless of side) would fix a lot of our issues.

druiid: Potter82: Wait, I don't understand the spit thing. Sex with 8 partners is the equivalent of drinking a whole classroom's spit? In what way? Are you taking about volume of fluid expended or health risk? How would you even measure this? How could that even be a study? This comparison is so incoherent that my brain is hurting from trying to make sense of it.

Also the whole the pill isn't 100% because I had a friend who got pregnant 3 times while on the pill argument is just bull. Statistically that's next to impossible. I don't think her friend knew how to use birth control. Also nothing says persuasive like an unverifiable anecdotes!! My best friend is the smartest guy in the world and he always says anecdotes beat actual evidence all the time!

I could do this all day. I wish I were in a Q&A session with this person, I probably would've been kicked out for asking too many questions and questioning her authorita.

Well, the pill like condoms are not totally fail-proof. I did in fact have a friend become pregnant on the pill (and their daughter is now approaching a year old). So, it does happen, it's just very very rare and not really a realistic argument for abstinence only programs to make.


Of course, the majority of those failures (for both the pill and condoms) are human error. Which can be decreased by proper education rather than this schtick.

I will say this, they had one point right, if someone won't have an abortion to end an unwanted pregnancy, by all means don't discourage adoption and make sure she knows it is an option and people will not look down on her for it.

Waitaminute here. Hold the phone. Are you telling me that if you take LSD you don't think you're an orange, and that if someone touches you you'll turn into orange juice?

That sounds like something some high school friends of mine would have experienced.  One time this car full of guys that are all trippin balls are sitting stopped on the freeway, and a cop pulls up behind them, and asks them why they are halted in the driving lane .. and the driver says "I can't drive THROUGH the plane, officer".  Yeah they all got taken in.


A friend of mine was at a defensive driving course and one of the other guys was there because he was tripping on acid while he was driving and was sure that there wasn't really a refrigerator in the freeway. There was.

I just went and go the paper insert from my daughter's pills. It says that the pill is 97% effective with "perfect use" and 74% effective with "typical use". So, for what it is worth, 26 women out of 100 who are sexually active and taking the pill the way normal people do will get pregnant in a given year while on the pill.

/I didn't make that up. That is what the literature says that came in the pill box.

I should clarify: I'm Jewish, and our people seem to do just fine at not being stupid while religious,

/I personally am far from religious, but it doesn't scare me to know that rabbis vote.
//On the other hand, it scares the crap out of me to know that evangelicals exist and further their species, much less vote.

Yes, but we hide ours far better, and our share is a hell of a lot smaller due to the tiny proportion of the population we make up.

Mija: Life DOES begin at conception and you don't have to be a conservative to believe that FACT. You have to be in denial to excuse your love to killing children to even pretend that a fetus is not a living being.



Wow, you're just full retard aren't you?

How's that feel? I  mean to be so dumb you don't know up from down.

I would think it would be fun and an easy way to go through life. Just please don't reproduce.

Yes. I am Jewish, with five kidlets (or as I refer to them, minions). My youngest if four, my oldest if 17. My husband is Lutheran. I was raised in south Georgia, which isn't much fun when you are a Jew. Some of the honest to goodness questions I got growing up: "Jewish, is that kinda like Cath'lic?" "Why don't you wear a cross? They're so purdy" and my personal favorites (it's a tie) "I know you're Jew-ish, but where do you go to church?" and "But Jesus WAS a Jew. How can you not love Jesus? He was one of your people!".

/defying sterotypes: it's my day job.
