    Seeing this made me feel things and I wanted to share it with you. Thank you to everyone who supports at . You make it possible for me to publish content I genuinely love instead of trying to please the algorithm. Thank you!

    I never saw this video despite watching all your other vids. I think youtube might be classifying it as pro life instead of educational.

    After observing my hens, I have to believe that their brains didn’t get any bigger. All joking aside, it is amazing to see how God designed them to develop.

    “Just a cluster of cells with no value” “can’t even think so not important” I can’t believe that people can see the miracle of life especially in their own race and just dismiss it because it’s inconvenient for them

    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.

    Destin, do you know if these embryos succeed in producing new chicks? I imagine they have to switch the displays every day so I hope they're going straight into an incubator to continue growing and not just discarded.

    I can’t get over how complicated and amazing life is. There’s more complexity in a 5 day old chicken than anything humans have ever created. Even the grass we walk on is insanely complex at a cellular level. In conclusion: nature is awesome.

    Reality and life are so complex and beautiful, and to think we people have perspectives about it so radically different, when I see this video I see biology, embryology, science, research, wonder... 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.

    If you take a hydrophilic glass container, fill it with negatively charged water, add proteins, minerals, vitamins, etc. substances and then bombard it with various frequencies of light including infrared, you should be able to randomly generate life, in theory.

    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.

    Life on Earth is just one long set of chemical reactions...just chemical reactions...but what comes from all is that is truly amazing. 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.
