    That's actually amazing! On the other hand I feel a bit off because I had eggs for breakfast and now I'm thinking which stage if any were the eggs at that I personally ate. My eggs are from a farm and completely organic and natural because pre-covid I would take my kids and actually go to pick eggs. This is my new nightmare ====> 🐣

    What I find amazing is that the yolk acts like a placenta. The egge shell is actually gas permeable and allows waste gasses to pass out through the yolk and good gasses to pass to the embryo. Nature is amazing.

    The anatomy scan while pregnant was easily one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. We got to go over every single bit of our baby: bones, organs, all 4 chambers of the heart, brain, etc etc etc. It was a long scan but it was so cool. I always call pregnancy the coolest experiment I've ever conducted.

On the other hand when a religious person sees this they probably think about how wise god is in his design... And that's sad

    I think it’s particularly worth sharing the verse he put at the end of this video because it’s both beautifully written and appropriate for the subject matter: For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

    Joke; "The Left are so smart. They think the Left is right." The Left think radical is civilized, true love conservativism. You can't define us that which sets the standards of decency. The one true Gods' Divine Philosophy and wisdom for humanity is superior to your perception of reality you chose. The biggest threat is incivility which, is what the Left is all about. Uncivilized power grabbers. Democrat's are barbaric and tyrannical that do not respect good ideas. Conservatives are preparing for self-defense against you creeps. You won't take our American values without bloodshed. The solution to gun violence in America. America is personal responsibility. Embrace that which you are. I know the solution. Government fund support to schools at all grade levels. Teach gun safety. Of age, qualify all citizens to carry. Cars kill more people than guns. You have to get a license to drive. Proactive funding and education. Plus the 1776 program in schools needs to start. This will solve problems and strengthen America for generations to come. We are smart. Work it out. America is personal responsibility. Defend it. Protect it. Be proud and share it with the jerk next door. Integrity of the Republic must be re-established. The integrity of the Republic is there, it's just not organized to its Max efficiency. A true integrity of personal responsibility for their own souls.

Chemistry and geo-mechanical action wears mountains down to sand, and turns a bunch of organic compounds into a complex multicellular living organism. Over and over and over every day for billions of years. Simply astounding.
