Wow, you are so cold-hearted. Or just really misguided. I pity you.
It is due to note that my title and the subsequent texts which proceed it are all chosen for reason and purpose, and are not subsequently fluff or
indicative of "Cool". I am as I describe myself.
You are destroying the potential for human life, regardless of how science defends it by warping reason. And that is something a moral person can only
do in a sick world.
I am reasoning with logos alone, devoid of Pathos or Ethos. In my reality, there are no moral absolutes... and so morality becomes nothing but a
convenient social game played by the general populace; resulting in either nuisance behavior or bemusement.
Aside, I would note that I am destroying no such thing. I state, and reason, but I have no more murdered the gametes and gonads of the world than I
have eaten of human flesh. Not that I would be adverse or inclined to either, dependent upon infinite degree of variability.
The world is a perceptual thing, and as previously stated, by quantifying a germinating egg or blastocyst with "LIFE", you may technically be
correct, but it has more in common with parasitism (Reliant and draining upon the host) than the eventual outcome of development and training.
Assigning emotional value is quite acceptable when dealing with HUMAN LIFE. Shame on you.
In my experience, Pathos and Ethos are the prime contributors in animalistic behaviorism... and subsequently the woes and ills of mankind stem
directly from either (A) Emotions clouding judgment. (B) The avid belief that you have uncovered the moral mechanisms which govern all men.
The first biases every human being as they defer to emotion and are controlled by its sway, rather than recognize its presence, acknowledge the
feeling and let Logos discern and override the unnecessarily harmful impulses.
The Second deceives mankind into the assumption that they know what is best, and the truth bears out that nobody can agree on THAT.
