Interesting Definitions

A human being supposes an organism that will eventually die of natural causes. So, killing my friend is not really murder. Since he did not die of natural causes he was never actually a "human being".

Ok, so that's the best I could do and it is, quite literally, nonsense. So how is it that a "scientist" can make an equally ridiculous claim and not have someone laugh directly in his face?

Here's what Hwang Woo-suk (the human cloner for S. Korea) had to say about the embryos he is apparently not destroying to get stem cells:

"What we are doing is not creating embryos. An embryo, basically supposes a birth of a life. But we have no intention or goals whatsoever to create life," said Hwang. "When the genetic material is removed from human egg, it becomes a vacant egg shell, I would like to call it that."
Oh, I see. So he defines an embryo based on a future event. I guess my painful analogy wasn't so far off after all, huh?

The question Dr. Idiot needs to answer is: What is the little ball of cells in the fallopian tube called when the nascent pregnancy results in a miscarriage?

The answer (for those of you keeping score at home) is: It's an embryo, regardless of future events.
