    I have.

    He's wrong about "natural rights".

    Nature..as we define it..is pretty different from human constructs.

    In nature, rights are defined by groups of animals banding together.

    And by the animals in that group.

    Sound familiar?

    typical liberal question...usually used as a diversion.

    Learn to understand context. Liberals love to ignore context and simply take the words spoken and apply it to whatever "definition" meets their agenda.

    Learn to apply context. It will make you a more pleasant person.

    Not really.

    Unless he's cremated or buried without embalming.

    I would like to know that as well.

    The only one I can think of is the right to live. To not be killed by another.

    Other than that..........

    aside from personal opinion, you asked where this idea came from and what it was, I simply pointed you in the direction of John Locke and his writings.

    agree, or disagree it matters not, as that is not what you asked in the op.

    It's a simple question.

    Which, by the way, you couldn't answer.
