Just to be crystal clear, I'm playing devils advocate here
Me too! I think that death is essential to life. God has the right idea. I just don't think people should be condemned for being god-like.
except that I am pro-life.
Me too, though not in the anti-abortion sense.
There are purely rational religious people that have fair arguments against abortion.
Are there any arguments that do not also condemn God?
Sure, that people killing other people is wrong and that they consider abortion to be murder. God is not a "person" so it doesn't apply to him.
Why is it rational to exclude non-persons? or is God a special case? If so, why?
the killing should be left to God
Since he is the creator he is the only one that can stop that creation.
Why? I think this is the key to it all, but we need to clarify it.
So it is OK to kill people as long as we automate the process?
If you're God, yep.
Why is it right for God but wrong for us?
I agree with everything ever posted by Hellmut, Philo and Susan D.
