is it not?
romeoboy

Con

I don't think so. Just because you understood what is being asked doesn't automatically answer or give the answer to that question. For example, if I asked you "Why was I born as a human being?", you understand that I have a question regarding my existence but this understanding doesn't give you the answer to my question.

its a malformed question

you were born as a human being because human beings are born and you are a human being

what is a human being? what is birth?
romeoboy

Con

That still doesn't answer why I couldn't be born as anything else, such as a fish or a dog.

is it true that you couldnt be?
romeoboy

Con

I see that I've made an error in my previous argument so I will rephrase.
What I meant to say was 'why wasn't I born as anything else?'. Despite the possibility of being born as anything, I was born as a human being. But we don't have the answer to that question, do we?

ok to me this is what you are asking, tell me if i am wrong

why am i human? then the necessary question for me to ask is, why wouldnt you be? and it all comes Down to you are human. why is your friend taller then you? why were you not born as a midget?

i must have a physical form to consider what i could be
romeoboy

Con

Just saying 'because you are human' cannot be considered an answer. It lacks the explanation of how.
