In its brochure, “The Origin of Life”, the WTS poses: “How Did Life Begin?” (page 4)
It states: “The answer to the question, Where do babies come from? is well-documented and uncontroversial. Life always comes from preexisting life.” (“The Origin of Life”, page 5)
So my questions are:
(1) Does the WTS explain what is meant by “life” or when it begins?
(2) Does it believe that spermatozoa (human or otherwise) are alive?
(3) Does it believe that an ovum is alive? (Is an unfertilised chicken’s egg alive?)
I would also like to comment that the WTS does not differentiate between the “origin of life” and “evolution”, but there is a difference between the moment of conception and the subsequent development (“evolution”) resulting from a successful union.
