that's kinda fucked up, Kai.
No, fucked up is treating them poorly. Fucked up is killing people for their skin color. Fucked up is making women second class citizens. Fucked up is corpse fucking.
My thoughts of babies as potential humans, which does not change my moral requirement to treat them right, is merely quirky.
It's also immature, stupid, and wrong.
I honestly can't think of a response to this that wouldn't be immature, stupid, and wrong.
You are supposed to be a scientist. How can you be a scientist and express an opinion such as that one for any other reason than thinking that it
Perhaps you can explain why it's wrong and what the correct opinion (and why that opinion is correct) is rather than descending into character attacks.
That was not a character attack, that was an attack on your opinion, followed by a question. I'm sorry, but I feel about explaining to you why babies are really people pretty much the same way I feel about explaining to someone why old people, black people, retarded people, or female people are still really people.
If you were an uneducated backwoods hick who actually had a valid reason for not understanding that babies are born with a full complement of brain cells and emotional/cognitive reactions, I might feel the obligation to explain it to you. But you're not. You have essentially said that because they can't communicate with you, they are less than human.
I would like to challenge you to figure out why that's wrong for yourself.
