    As if intent would change what it is.

    I consider it an oak tree,... because it is to be a very very young oak tree. My intent, however is not what makes it a very very young oak tree. It would still be an very very young oak tree,... As it would still be what it is,.. even if I were to deny it.

    You were not taken out of context in any way shape or form. I'll note that you even voted in the affirmative on the poll.

    That's a bit of an odd way to feign outrage,... dontcha think?

    An acorn is not an oak tree.

    Right, those are all different stages of development.

    It seems, some of us can think a little deeper than others,... even at the risk of ridicule by those who can't. (won't)

    I hadn't even read what you quoted of me until after I voted. Regardless of how I voted, it doesn't change the FACT that you quoted that statement out of the context it was used. What you quoted of me had to do with you making some asinine assertion that people were stating mammals go through a metamorphosis and actually change from one organism to another. What in the bloody hell does that have to do with 'when life biologically starts'? How can you even pretend not to realize how out of context that quote was used? For people who read the quote prior to voting, it changed the scope and meaning of your poll entirely.

    As long as you're still claiming that 'birth' starts the moment of conception, you'll be ridiculed.

    I don't know that any pro-lifer has ever claimed that.

    Life begins at conception, but life does not begin at birth.

    Chuz stated that a person is born at conception.

    That's when they are actually "created" or "brought into existence."

    "Birth" delivering a baby from the mother's womb,...is just a change of address for the child who already has been living for about 9 months.
    Now you do. A person claimed you're 'born' the minute you are conceived. Please Jerry. Don't EVEN think about defending such bull**** with your usual semantic games.
