    anonymousdebater You are the collection of cells. The cells which make the collection may change but the collection is for the most part the same form. You are not your cells you are the what they all add up to be. Like how a TV is what we call atoms and materials in a certant form. It can also be argued that you are really just your brain but I would say that you are your intire body. Other wise you would not say you are wounded when your body gets wounded. Techonly we all have an atom which made up the same person in the past but that does not make you them.
  • The me who wrote this message is permanently dead as you read this. If I am still alive now, I am a different person very resembling of 'me'.

    Who is 'me'? I am but a concept. In reality All you see is a body... The identity and past you chain it to are what lead to people trapped in lives they wish they could go back in time and undo.

    It doesn't matter how much a pedophile tries to right their wrong, they are tarnished for life... What's the point of prison?

    Instead of branding people as X or Y we should come up with an 'ideal person' and help all get closer to being it, forgiving them for past sins. 

    I personally do hold grudges but the grudge may not necessarily be against who that person has become today. See?
    Be tomorrow's hero, not today's idol.
  • If we are different people, then how can we be responsible for our promises that we make because the person who made the promise is not the same person who will keep it? Plus, is it still our family member if we have changed and the family member has changed? The implications of this are tremendous, and so we simply assume that we are the same person so must be bound to our promises.
