Is It Okay to You that Scientists are creating artificial life forms by creating artificial DNA in laboratories?
"Designer Genes: Synthetic by Rick Weiss
The Washington Post Sat. Dec. 30, 2007
Weiss points out that the first DNA was created in a test tube 50 years ago. For example , then a gene could be inserted a a corn plant against drought.
But, he said it was only recently that life forms can be created . A group of scientists in Maryland made the worlds' first handmade chromosome. Weiss says that this chromosome is "a large looping strand of Dna" made there that has the chromosomes to live and to reproduce."In 2008 Weiss says that they will plant the chromosome in a live cell and "see what it wants to do." He calls this a water shed event..what do you think?
the House of Representatives has outlawed cloning but not the Senate (not yet..it's still pending), so ecco the loophole. Anthropologist Paul Rabinow says that "this makes evolutionary processes no longer sacred or inviolable.(He is an anthropologist.) What do you think? please let us know and leave your link.
For my behalf I think we should contact our senators.TY
