Re: Artificial humans vs. Christianity

You are off the subject. The question is whether such a man made human would have a soul. Yes or no.

Re: Evidence and all that

"Deism. Of late, sometimes known as Sklanskianity."

Re: atheists-- what is your source of hope?

I am not happy with these replies. They imply that atheists need to find some other source of hope to become atheists. Atheists should believe what they do soley because of science and logic. If that...

Re: D.Sklansky: Why is an embryo a person?

Re: A Question for Christians

"it is a weak reasoner method of discrediting his "opponent""
