This question will be discussed on 'The Discovery Channel'. It should be interesting.: think:

Thanks I'll catch it.
I've pondered this question a lot and I've concluded it begins with the sperm. Each sperm is alive is independently motivated to reach the egg. The egg(s) is a living tissue but each sperm carries the code for a different person; the sperm are each very independent...absolutely amazing.

I'am sorry I'am not biology major. Are you just wanting to be silly, sarcasstic, so a chance to attack or what?

Monty Python fandom is hardly limited to biology majors.

I'm sorry you're so sensitive and thin-skinned that you think a cultural reference which some find amusing to be an 'attack' on you...

I don't know about your cultural reference or what this has to do with Op.
Have at it.

If you don't know, leave it to those who do (the snip is bang on topic and relevant, if you take a minute out to look).

If you do know and are just trying a put - down, just recall the bushels of rudeness that has been dished by some theists with a 'Hey lighten up' smokescreen as they retreated when called on it.

What does any of this have to do with the Op? You just had to chime in. You don't know it all either.
