When is Man...Man?
Dear Editor,
"A rose by any other name remains a rose" or something to that effect. When is a rose a rose? The stem of a living rose bush brings forth a small bump on its stem...and Man in his wisdom gives this tiny wonder the name, rosebud... the beginning of a rose. Thus a rosebud is a rose and will always be a rose even after it completes its life cycle from a rosebud, to a rose blossom to a fading rose flower...losing its beautiful petals as it ages to its final stage, a lifeless rosebud. Thus a "rose is a rose is a rose" the saying goes.

The question is...How does Man, using the same wisdom describe himself from his beginning to that of a lifeless man? When is man a man? Is man a man when he is first formed as a living/growing bud or has man defined himself differently for his convenience? Just how much wisdom does man display when it comes to the subject of when human life begins?
