Nerve cells are subject to rolling replacement too, thats just one of those things they say, like your eyeballs never grow. They totally do.

One of these facts is not like the others one of these facts is wrong.

Nerve cells do not replicate and are not replaced. Though, the atoms in said cells can be replaced.

Sorry, I don't grow new teeth every 10 or less years, so the "complete replacement" claim is bogus.

Even if you just go to "all cells have been replaced", again, completely bogus. Neurons in the cerebral cortex are almost never replaced and cardiomyocyte heart cells are rarely replaced and that rate slows as you age. Even if you lived to be 100, you'd probably only replace half those heart cells and just a few percent of your brain cells. (source)

Science facts are nice, but they're better when they're right.

and... You can't buy cashews in the shell because they're from the same family of poison ivy and sumac. They would cause rashes from handling them.

I find the bit about breathing by hand a little hard to accept.

Hmmm personal identity- please do not start the argument- halfway through a philosophy degree at present and if there is one subject I dislike it is personal identity.......

Also who thinks that fungi are even related to plants other than the symbiotic relationship they often share? They're decomposers and their origin is monophyletic. Heck, they even have their own food web, the detritus food web.

"You have no more in common with your previous self than any other human..."
...Except my DNA, which is pretty much the same, because the whole is more than the sum of its parts.
