When does life begin

A man wonders when life truly begins. So he goes to a priest and asks for his opinion on this question.


After consulting the Bible, the priest says, My son, after an exhaustive search, I am positive that life begins upon the union of egg and sperm.



The man thinks: What does a priest know about life? After all, anyone in the Catholic clergy would be saying that due to the shrinking of their flock in the past several decades.



The man decides to ask a Unitarian minister and receives different reply: The beginning of life is not something that can be determined exactly. Even the words beginning and life are too broadly defined to arrive at a meaningful answer. However we will be having a discussion group about this in three weeks if you would like to attend, the minister said.



Not pleased with the reply, and unwilling to wait for three weeks he seeks out the ultimate authority: a man of thousands of years tradition and knowledge. In other words, he goes to a rabbi. The Rabbi briefly ponders the question, then states, My son, its quite simple. Life begins when all the kids leave the nest and the dog dies.
