I’m wondering where fetuses fit into this argument as they are more than hypothetical people. I’m relatively neutral on the subject so I’m not being political. Also just about everything alive today will be dead in a few hundred years. Most of it horribly. Either starving, disease, predation or territorial aggression. What does it matter if it’s replaced or not? It is nonexistent so it knows or feels nothing. Because some DNA coding tells us too? If life is just a biochemical happenstance what does anything really matter? Why should anyone care beyond the scope of their own lives? If every living thing went extinct 5 days or 5 billion years after I die, I won’t know the difference. I know questions like this eventually lead to the mystical but that would really be the only reason to care. If we somehow go on. Honestly both seem absurd to me but I lean towards something beyond us. What, I don’t know, but it’s a gut feeling, whatever that’s worth. Science and religion have been at odds for awhile and it seems science is winning now, but it’s cold comfort. I think it’s important for the future of humanity to reconcile the two. Without the judgment, the hypocrisy and the exclusivity. I think a lot of people under value the effects believing in a greater being or plan or whatever can have on society. It makes the future and all the hypothetical life that goes along with it seem more valuable if you believe in some way you will still be around to witness it, whether it’s true or not.
