    Post Global Warming Vs. Abortion - True or False

    Short and sweet.

    "There is more evidence to support the claim that a human individual's life begins at conception,... than there is to support claim that 'man' is causing global warming."

    True or False?

    That's not even comparable. Human-caused global warming is either fact or not fact. When human life "begins" is a subjective matter of judgement.

    As Dav said, the two are incomparable. Global Warming can be proven or dis-proven with facts. When life starts is completely subjective.

    The answers are "true or false"

    I submit that I can "begin" a new human being's life in a lab controlled environment, film it, test it and photograph the evidence,.... and repeat the results.

    Can the same be done with regards to man made climate change?

    I don't think so.

    Where are these so called "facts" which prove global warming?

    Glad to see you stopped beating around the bush and stated the real reason for this thread. In the future it's best to waste less time and come straight out with it.

    As far as I am aware there are no facts that attribute changes in the climate solely to human intervention. So far everything is coincidental and may have been impacted by human intervention or could just be the natural cycle of the planet. It's all theoretical.

    Chuz Life, you appear unable to determine the difference between a "fact" and an "opinion."

    So here's a simple site to help you learn the difference:

    That wouldn't prove life starts at conception. It just proves you can create something in a lab that eventually becomes a human being.

    As if you gave any time for anything else....

    Note the time between my original post and the first response.

    I didn't even have time to edit.

    True or False?
    Define conception.
