    My stepdaughter has severe CP and despite all the cynicism is one of the great joys of my life. My ex-wife told me about how all the naysayers wanted her to give her up saying her life would never be full.
    Now despite her severe physical handicaps she is one of the top of her class. She has done and has more potential to succeed than my own children despite her disability.
    Every life is precious and full of potential. I'm not a believer in god but if I were I would say god bless Rick for his belief in human life and god bless his little Bella.

    Seems silly coming from an atheist. Carbon particles is carbon particles.

    What does my belief in a god have to do with a belief in life?

    No need to debate it, Gramps.

    I just think it strange when people try to ascribe purpose, meaning and/or 'belief' to things when they confess not to buy any of that hooey in the first place. I mean, how can one set of curiously animated and rather randomly collided atoms be more or less 'precious' than another?

    Seriously, I'm looking for an answer.

    I don't consider myself an atheist but rather a person that allows each to believe their own. Is that not good enough for you? .

    You dont have to believe in God to recognize Eternal Truth.

    I find it interesting that you would judge my beliefs or lack thereof when I don't judge yours.

    Apparently you are one of those small tent people?

    I agree with this. To each their own. I consider myself Agnostic which is basically the same thing. Believe what works for you-whatever it is.
