Life Begins...

At a round-table discussion, various religious leaders tried to answer the question "When does life begin?"

"At conception," said the Catholic priest.

"No, no," said the Presbyterian minister. "it begins at birth."

"It's in between," said the Baptist. "Life begins at 12 weeks when the fetus develops a functional heartbeat."

"I disagree with all of you," said the rabbi. "Life begins when your last child leaves home and takes the dog with him."

  4. Perhaps it begins when the soul enters the entity shortly after birth.

    Just a thought.

    I think the Rabbi is onto something. chuckle.

  6. Technically my opinion is life begins at conception, cause I can tell you this little being in my belly is QUITE alive! But this is too funny, my dad's already started warning me of such life changing events to start looking forward to.

  15. Sounds like my Jewish buddy Murray. He was so glad to get his youngest daughter married and out of the house that he paid for her honeymoon and rented her room out all in the same day.

  17. I believe the rabbi is onto something! My sister was crazy about both her boys when they were born and she was raising them... but she's totally in love with her first granddaughter!!

  19. Life begins the moment you marry and continues...! Without kids and g-kids there is no life!

  20. I am still waiting for life to begin LOL. How is our favorite comedienne today? We are waiting for yet another snow storm here in NY. Aren't you jealous?????

  21. I agree with this...when the kids leave. When the grandbabies arrive, then you're talking about a second childhood. Suddenly you can't wait to go to amusement parks, carnivals...

  22. Sometimes, the answer's as simple as "life begins with quitting time at work" ;-)
