Yes, that's an agreeable description. I think you intended for it to rebut something I'd said, though, didn't you?

It is simple; you are utterly incorrect, I have explained why, and you are being petulant.

Yes. .

By child, you actually mean foetus - and a foetus is no more a human being than a fingernail is.

The benefits of researching with them are gargantuan, as they are seemingly limitless in what they can develop into, and the deterrents are non-existent. Stem cells have no need of pity, kindness or empathy, so there is no moral issue whatsoever.

You are fundamentally incorrect.

My main reason for affiliating with the 'pro-choice' view is that it's not my choice to make whether a woman has an abortion or not. I do not get to decide what happens in a woman's body - only she does. This means that I am most certainly not 'pro-abortion'. I want it universally legalised, so that people have a choice.

If it were legal and not a single abortion were ever carried out again, I wouldn't care, I just won't stand by and allow tyranny. That's very different from advocating that people have abortions.

Typically, yes. If every priest or rabbi began each sentence with "according to the bible" or "I believe", then it wouldn't be, but children believe the adults around them, and all too often people forget to mention that it may not be the case.

Well, that's just conjecture which you believe, and which I find dubious.

Its already deteriorating right now, in our generation.

That is the premise on which this debate was started.

If you use contraction, isn't it a form of laziness, when you can easily say "it is"? Also with the I'm. Which you can say I am.

It isn't laziness, there is a point to using contractions. Used properly, they don't distort the meaning of a sentence, either - they are still correct.

As far as I'm concerned, I know that being creative means being able to generate new ideas out of old ones. Isn't it creative when people use new ways of expressing their thoughts which they base from the old texts that we use?

No. These people aren't magnificent, blossoming fonts of creativity, they are people who are too lazy to use punctuation. Call 'text language' an art form if you like, but to me it's just a nugget of condensed literary sloth.

A similar stance would be to try and treat a man with an infected lung by painting him bright orange. He dies from lack of proper medical attention, but hey, perhaps we created a new form of art! The English language has a correct form and structure, and deviation from that is rarely, if ever, good.

Yeah, I have made several mistakes in my reply, but you still understood what I just said even after all the mistakes. People are subject to change, just accept that there are some things you can't stop.. like deterioration.

I understood it, but you didn't make as many mistakes as most people do. I'm talking specifically about the masses who wouldn't have finished any of the sentences with a full-stop.

I refuse to sit back and watch such deterioration. It certainly will not be seen to develop in me.
