A race to repudiate science. The winner looses.

Absolutely amazing.

Not exactly on topic, but somewhat related.

News Alert
from The Wall Street Journal


Scientists for the first time have created a synthetic cell, completely controlled by man-made genetic instructions, which can survive and reproduce itself, researchers at the private J. Craig Venter Institute announced Thursday. Created at a cost of $30 million, the experimental one-cell organism opens the way to the manipulation of life on a previously unattainable scale.

Synthetic Genomics, a company founded by Dr. Venter, funded the experiments and owns the intellectual property rights to the cell-creation techniques.

Eh, did Dr. Venter use Intelligent Design?

Is anyone else deeply disturbed by this sentence? On many levels?

If you want to have a concern think about the research that is not reported either due to patent issues, security concerns or someone is inventing a more interesting weapon.

This is a huge scientific advancement. Applications seem endless. Such as mass production of certain molecules like drugs or petrochemicals. This hit the mainstream press pretty hard last week. Wow. Thanks for posting.

Holy crap! I guess this pretty much sums it up. I guess all those scientists are wrong.

You've GOT to be kidding....

And the universe is only a few thousands year old. I am coming to the conclusion that the truly insane are those who try and force others to their demented views.

I can't believe that anybody would buy this argument. Of course, the fact that some do buy it is one of the better arguments against evolution that I've heard of late. :razz:
