Exactly, but it is how it is. You work with it or pretend it doesn't exist... Denial they call it.
And nope, same DNA. From what we know, he didn't age biologically. So the time travel side affect must have also stopped his cells from ageing, or at least prevented degradation of the core DNA which would have caused errors/illness/age.
So yes, same core person, on a time scale. They, at one point in time, share the very same matter at some point.

Doesn't matter my thoughts or stance.. you have yours and I have mine. You will probably not change my opinion just like I will probably not change yours.
I realize the questions you're asking are going to be used to say anything I believe is wrong or flawed because of blah blah blah scripted talking point like rape or fetal/physical health issues. I will retort. You will retort. We'll go back and forth till we run out of places to comment. Neither one of us budging on our opinions. Maybe some ad hominem at one point. Other people will weigh in their views which are usually about the .085% of abortions because of rape or some off the wall debate of male sperm and masturbation. Just like they did below.
I do like the fact you brought up Fetal health problems as one of your talking point.. I'm sure that is your "gotcha" moment, but it only accounts .666% of abortions and I tend to agree with the matter if the mother's health is at risk then an abortion is necessary. Similar to triage where any symbiotic relationship because parasitic in nature.
The .085% rape and .666% to .288% health issues both fetal and maternal are simply the way many people justify abortions as good. They don't wanna talk about the 92.330% of no reason given.
That's just what is.. most younger people want abortions so they can not take responsibility for their actions when they have unprotected sex. A baby to all of you is a death sentence on your fun life and way of living. Its okay to admit that its a selfish need not a selfless act that motivates you. Hell when I was younger I would have been in the same boat, but now I'm a bit older and see it as murder.
I mean look at the red thumbs. No one is debating this or arguing it other then to a few to sound intellectually superior, but they just spit out the same talking points we have all heard before. They simply agree with the crowd of teens and young adults scared of babies because of what it means to be a parent.
What it means to be a parent is raising an entirely new individual. Not some mini-you. If you're not financially or emotionally ready to have a child there is literally nothing even ethically wrong with abortion. It's ethically worse to force people to "take responsibility" and raise a kid they have no business raising in the first place. Shit, there are financially well off people I think shouldnt even have kids.
Why is the solution to such trivial matters have to be murdering children. It's never making different financial decisions, it's never working on better income, it's never adoption, it's never adapting or maturing by need of necessity, murdering children is the only way. It doesn't even cross our mind why it's morally wrong because children are simply SOOOOO inconvenient they need to be killed. Could you imagine if we applied that extreme anywhere else?
Relationship not working out? Kill her of course. Can't make rent this month? Burn down your apartment and live in your car. You have bad grades? Drop out of highschool and sell yourself into slavery. Run out of food in your fridge? Cut off your own hand for dinner. It's so irrational and absurd. Can we just ignore the fact that yes, in life shit happens. Mistakes are made, people have consequences. Can we also admit that killing children is morally wrong and not an acceptable solution? You know there is a reason we find the holocaust to be morally revolting.
Because you can't kill what hasn't existed yet. Nice strawmans on that bottom paragraph though.
We find the holocaust morally revolting because people ALIVE and born were treated grotesquely and killed for existing. No intelligent person finds abortion morally wrong because it's way worse to give someone a shitty existence than to have them exist to make you feel better. That's why having a child is one of the most selfish things you could do.
The second you can promise me that ALL pro-lifers will vote for pro-welfare/UBI legislation I'll start advocating against abortions. Wait until we've reached post-scarcity and then we can talk.
I see no distinction on why fetuses aren't alive in the same way infants are alive. You also have failed to explain to me why murder is the only viable solution despite its absurd and radical nature. Why are you people like this? How are you so intellectually deficient that you are incapable of thinking of alternatives to fucking murder of children??
Because it's not murdering children. THEY DON'T EXIST. Also I'm pro-sex ed something A LOT of pro-life states blantantly aren't.
Blame the fact that we allow church and state to not be as separate in the more religious states.
How are you so intellectually deficient that you are incapable of thinking of someone else's life, someone else's existence instead of how you feel? Go to Africa or Yemen, look a starving kid in the eyes as he dies and with a big smile on your face tell him that life is/was worth living.
This is what people don't understand and I think this excerpt from a scene of a show I passed by that I think hits the nail on the head. A little context: Henry goes on CSPAN2 to talk about his book and is attacked by a caller who questions his expertise on morality and ethics when there are nude photos of his daughter on the web
"A lot of people say that morals are how we treat the people we know and ethics are how we treat the people we don't know. So morals are what make us a good parent, a good friend, a nice neighbor. But ethics are how we build a society. That's the true test of our higher self. But what happens, Jeff, when society is ruled by the subjective morals of, say, you and your family and you choose to project that onto complete strangers is that we all end up with a society that's governed by self-aggrandizement. So, really, by calling Oh... to make sure you're the first little pedant to jump off your chair and teach me a lesson with smug superiority about your own particular moral point of view when you know precisely nothing of the situation, you've done your part to contribute to the erosion of our entire social fabric. Pat yourself on the back. Bravo.
If woman is not ready for a child then having abortion is one of the most responsible things a she can do. Or do you think a woman who doesn't want a child but is forced to keep it would be a good mother? Do you think someone who sees child as a burden would raise it right and teach it to be a good person?
If a mother doesn't want a baby/isn't ready she can choose to get rid of her mistake with no input from the father...
But if she decides to keep it the father if obligated to provide for the child/mother for 18 years/ suck it up and live with the consequences of his actions...
Why is it only women get the right to choose?
"I have my opinions you have yours" "You will probably not change my opinion" "then to a few to sound intellectually superior."
Jeez if Merriam Webster needs a new definition of "anti-intellectual" I know where to send them now.
If you already know that your opinion, or anyones else's wont change, and you don't think it should even when based on a logical rationale, then why do you even bother posting in a public forum? If you just think every nutter should believe what he wants then shut the fuck up. There is no point in sharing your own, or debating anything from your perspective anyway then.
On topic: You think some slut who got shit faced and now needs an abortion is both unethical and a sin, but you can blow your load of sperm, that was meant to create the miracle of life, 3 times a day, to trap porn in your moms basement, and that's fine.
It's the same with religious and pseudo-religions wackjobs. The acceptable level of moral degeneracy, stops exactly at where your own level of moral degeneracy does.
Personally I do want to hear your thoughts on the matter. I realize i likely won't be changed on my stance, but I believe it's because of the number of times I've talked out the issue with others. The points i brought up were to cover my bases, i'm not really trying to trick you into anything or have a "Gotcha!" moment, I really just want to test my thoughts on the matter against others. You seem like you're tired of this sort of thing though, so I won't try and force you to reply. I legitimately do want to arrive at a view on abortion that's the best place we can get to as a species. Now, if you'd like to read my view on it it's in the spoiler below. If not, that's fine too. There are some people on here who legitimately enjoy thinking.
I started with the thought that abortion was wrong, equal to murder. That was back when i was younger, and my views changed over time to where they are now.
Personally, I don't know if it's murder. I don't think we can really say one way or another if it is. I know it becomes closer to murder as it goes along, but i don't think people are arguing for condoms being murder or against abortion past 6 months being murder. I think it's accepted that the former is false and the latter true. However, i think there's a bigger issue than that.
People who want to get an abortion do not want a child. I think that's a pretty solid statement. People who do not want a child MAY care for the child, and MAY give it a good life, but i doubt both of those will happen in anything but one in a few dozen cases. More likely they'll do neither. More likely they'll give that child an awful life and drag down all parties involved. Poor communities having fewer children, in fact having fewer children as a whole or at least waiting until there's a good provision for children, is a good thing for everyone. Sure it'd be great if people waited to have sex until they could care for children, but that's not how we've evolved and that's not how we've shaped the world. Preferably i'd love for all humans to be able to just turn off their reproductive abilities. We might get there in a few years, but we're not there now. In my eyes abortion seems to be an unfortunate middle ground. Nobody (Nobody sane at least) is happy to get, give, or support an abortion as the best way to deal with it, we'd all prefer condoms, pills, or things of that nature, but people are stupid and awful solutions are often the only ones we have.
Good job. You are better at articulating your thoughts than I am.
