No intent in asking this.
You said scripture supports life at conception, some say at birth, the soul is given unto the vessel. Where do I look for this?

"It is I who bring both death and life."
"Did not He who made me in the womb make him?
And did not one fashion us in the womb?"
Genesis 35:16-26. This passage deals with Jacob and his wives going to Ephrath from Bethel after they had left Padanaram. The statement in verse 26
says they were all born in Padanaram. But if you will notice one of them was obviously born after they left and were
between Ephrath and Bethel, that one was- Benjamin. Why would the writer of Genesis makesuch an bvious "mistake"? If the time element is looked
into, you can see that Benjamin
was conceived in Padanaram but literally born in the promised land. This shows what God thinks of the place to start counting a life.
Even in the very beginning God told man and woman to multiply and be fruitful. Now why would there be need to multiply and be fruitful if the work was
There are many many verses in scripture to support life beginning at conception and it also shows that God does not distinguish between when a child
becomes a child, from the very conception they become life, the process for creating a new human being is begun at conception. That life does not
begin until the mixture of genetic material between man and woman is exchanged and conception begins.
Jesus made it a point to stress that he pre-existed and he alone.
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
None of the other jews could claim they had seen or known Abraham, thats why they picked up rocks to throw at him, they knew he was claiming to be God
the only one who could pre-exist.
