I believe that human life begins at implantation when the fertilized egg attaches to the mother.

Cool, care to explain why this is important?

When life begins is a very important issue because of things like abortion.

I meant, why is it important that I know that you believe it? What are you trying to achieve by telling me of this belief.

You need to answer my question first.

You need to answer my question first.

A 'human life', defined by me, for the purpose of answering Your Question 'When does a human life begin?' and limited to discussion within this thread alone and without reference to any other definition of the term 'human life' be it legal, scientific or otherwise, and excluding any implication of rights and responsibilities afforded to a 'person', 'human', 'human being' or other common equivalent under any law, convention or rule except where explicitly included in the definition or an extension thereof, as

'a contiguous period of time over which an entity satisfying the definition of a human, lives'

where human is defined subject to the same constraints as above as

'an entity containing and utilising (for the purpose of protein construction) human DNA, and exhibiting the physical, chemical and functional characteristics typical of humans'.

and 'lives' is defined using common scientific definitions of the term involving but not limited to the ability to reproduce.

Under the definitions above a 'human life' (I believe) would begin at the point in time at which the entity in question either begins to exist, or begins to satisfy the definition so given.

And go.

"I Believe" - exactly. We cant define when life begins simply because Science hasnt provided that answer yet, and more importantly once it finally does, how will we interpret it?

Too many people with opinions equals nothing more than too many truths...
