The Three Forms of Human Life

There are three forms of human life: (1) The Human Adult (The Born Human); (2) The Human Gamete (The Human Egg/Human Sperm); (3) The Human Zygote (The Human Fetus, The Unborn Human)

The True Facts of Human Life: Early Life Forms -> Human Life Forms -> Human Parents -> Human Gametes -> Human Zygotes.

Adult = Born Individual = Individual capable of producing gametes necessary under normal/non-cloning reproductive conditions.

Gamete = Egg or Sperm = Reproductive cells necessary for reproduction under non-cloning conditions.

Zygote = Fertilized Gamete = Fertilized egg, a fetus, an unborn individual.

Note: -> = Symbol designating 'evolves into, develops into, becomes,' etc.

Restated: From early life forms human life forms develop/evolve, which include human parents who produce human gametes which when fertilized conceive and produce human zygotes.

Life began a long time ago, when the first life forms evolved from non-life forms.

Life continued from those early life forms to the present life forms.

Those of us alive today are direct descendants of the first life forms; we could not be here if there had been a break in the chain of our causality via evolution from the first life forms.

The first life forms were adults capable of reproducing, first by cell division, later through sexual union.

Thus, the answer to "Which came first--the chicken or the egg?!?!?!" is "The chicken!!!"

Restated: If "chicken" = adult/born/hatched/etc. life form and "egg" = unborn/unhatched/etc. life form, then, on the premise that the adult/born/hatched/etc. must come before the unborn/unatched/etc., the chicken/adult/born/hatched/etc. came before the egg/unborn/unhatched/etc.

What has been omitted from this famous question are the gametes.

If the question "Which came first--the chicken or the egg?!?!?!" is reworded "Which came first--the chicken or the chicken's gametes?!?!?!" or "Which came first--the chicken, the chicken's gametes, or the chicken's zygote(s)?!?!?!", then th

One of the biological characteristics of human skin cells, cancer cells, reproductive cells/gametes, zygotes, and adults, is the presence of DNA which is uniquely human.

Thus, biologically, to be "human" is to have--be biologically based upon--human DNA.

Inre human reproduction, the human reproductive cells known as gametes have human DNA; human adults and human zygotes likewise have human DNA.
