A: The concept you're referring to involves a misunderstanding of legal terminology and principles. In legal terms, a "person" can indeed refer to both natural persons (human beings) and artificial persons (such as corporations), as recognized in various legal contexts, including the Bankruptcy Act of 1898. However, a birth certificate does not create an artificial person; it is simply a document that records the birth of a natural person.

A birth certificate cannot be used in the manner you're suggesting. It does not transform a natural person into an artificial person, nor can it be "turned in" to satisfy a legal case or obligation. The idea that a birth certificate creates some form of artificial legal entity separate from the natural person is a misconception and not supported by legal practice or theory.

Regarding your question about the BAR, "BAR" does not stand for "British Accreditation Registry." The term "bar" in a legal context traditionally refers to the legal profession in general or the barrier in a courtroom that separates the judicial area from the public area. In the United States, BAR associations are professional bodies that regulate the legal profession. The term has no connection to British accreditation in this context.

It's important to approach legal matters with accurate information and understanding. If you have concerns or questions about legal terminology or principles, it's advisable to seek clarification from reliable legal sources or consult with a legal professional. They can provide accurate information and advice relevant to your specific situation.
