    Agreed! Both equal, If der was no sperm cell there would be no zygote if there was no egg cell there would be no zygote so both equally as important!

    Agreed. 001 is useless without the 002. The 002 is useless without the 001
    Conclution: Neither is more important. Both is Equaly important. Both is equaly inferior.
    Cell desegnation:
    Sperm: 001
    Egg: 002
    Neuron: 000
    To be continued

    The 'egg' contains one set of DNA plus the initial sanctuary for early gestation, the Sperm contains the other set of DNA plus an 'instruction sheet ' The process cannot naturally occur unless both are involved.

    I'd say the egg was more important, since the age range of women who can conceive is narrower than that of the guys. In other words any guy over about 12 is biologically capable of becoming a dad - but it takes someone reallly sweet and special to become a mom.

    Once again you subjective. But i guess its hard as to be objective and logical as you get older.
    The egg contain ½ of the genetic inforamtion required. And the energy required to develop the first parts.
    The sperm contail ½genetic information aswell but also contain RNA stubs that is apperently able to effect the person for the rest of his life. They seem to play a vital role in "decieding" what genes shall be active and wish shall not

    Yes it's subjective - I never said it was not, If you had read the first part of my post you would have saved yourself the trouble of repeating what I said. - As to subjective I prefer Bananas to grapefruit.
    I think bananas are better/superior to grapefruit.

    Biology can be subjective. But is mostly objective
    When 2 choices is both a subjective choice. Than logicly neither is right objectily in biology. Therefor logicly neither 001 nor 002 is better than the other.
    When ever logical action is exusted, the only logical left is inaction

    If that's true - and you are happy to call other people morons, and biology says you are equal to them are you also calling yourself a moron?

    i consider humanity to generally be stupid, and filled with morrons. But since thats a "law" there will be exceptions confirming it. if i am one of them will be seen in the future, if not im happy anyway

    Well since its pretty obvious that neither one is more important because they are both required no exceptions, for your debate all you can do is list all things that wont begin unless sperm is present. And since its a debate you dont actually have to be "correct" all you have to do is make it look like you know everything there is to know about fertilization and since you know so much and say the sperm is more important, then you must be correct. :wink:

    or something like that, use it
    Resistence is futile

    Without the sperm the mother is more easly to reject the egg becuase of the geneticla simularity. a female rejects fertilized eggs if they are to genetical simular to the mother

    May I suggest the poster of the original question pop down to the library? you can discover for youself then which is most important.

    If you are trying to argue that the egg is more important than the sperm you are on to a loser. They are mutually dependant (in terms of species survival), one cannot exist[that is survive in the long term] without the other.

    I was asking on how could i defend my side.

    Of course we all know that they are both needed.

    But when you are like a lawyer, wether you like it or not, you must defend your side.

    Thanks,
    This is what you wrote, this is what you are trying to defend. Zelos and I contend it is simply rubbish to assert that either is more needed in terms of fertilisation [if you are referring to human reproduction] for some other species the sperm may not be required but for ALL species the egg is.
