Round 2: Abortion. Argue with me, I dare you! Answered
The title is a bit misleading, as I don't actually have much of a stance either way. I haven't ever thought about this in depth, but now I am forced to. (I have another debate). :P
Today, my teacher asked me what I thought about abortion, and I felt that any answer I gave would be a lie, because I hadn't yet answered these questions:
When does life begin?
When does life end?
Later, when we spoke after school, he asked me another question:
Who creates life?
This is the most puzzling, and I had no idea what he meant at the time. Now, though, I guess that he was really asking "When a human being is born into this world, is it due to the man and the woman? All of humanity? God?"
The last, I cannot accept as my answer, because I don't believe in any god.
I believe that a human being is a beautiful thing, that good is good, and evil is evil. Beyond this, I'm not sure of much at all.
(Update: I think I said something I hadn't truly considered. The way that I said "Good is good, and evil is evil," might lead you to believe that I think there's a clear-cut difference between the two. I'm still not sure about some of these things).
I think it would help if I could hear and understand others' views on this.
