Re: Are You Afraid To Die?

sunnubian ·
No, I'm not afraid to die, but when I do I hope it will be quick and painless. Besides, only the body dies, the human being is eternal, infinite, so, no one never REALLY dies. Each person born is born for a reason, or have a task to complete during their lifetime, no one is born to live in the physical forever, but things like suicide and murder upsets the natural balance/cycle/circle of life and the reason each person is born.

Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

Re: Pope: Embryo = "Full and complete human being"

Black Viking ·
What separates a embryo or a fetus from a person is defined by nature and not by human law or religious dogma. It's very simple really, it's the womb. It's not a person until it is a separate entity no longer directly dependant on the mother's bodily systems to support it. While in the womb, it is still a part of the mother's body, and incapable of independant life. It is similar to a hand or a finger. Is it alive? Yes.

This is a side affect of the socio-economic, race issue that affects African-Americans. Not to mention the high amounts of processed or enhanced foods we eat. If just a few generations ago black people could live to be over 100 years old or well into their 80's and 90's without much medical care, there is an underlying issue. Because of medical problems I've been having recently, I think that its because of some of the foods we eat. For example, the high incidence of fibroids in black women.
