Do You Find This Scary?


From the Telegraph-UK:

In a development that has triggered unease and excitement in equal measure, scientists in the US took the whole genetic makeup – or genome – of a bacterial cell and transplanted it into a closely related species.

Here is a good word: Hubris

Here is an excellent passage of Scripture: Prov 16:18, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

I think it is a mark of great hubris to:

#1 believe that we can “create life” in the lab and control it.

#2 believe that, while it takes super-smart monkeys decades to “create life” of the simplest kind, an amorphous mass of gas and oozy stuff can self organize into super-smart monkeys who can map genomes.

The fool has said in his heart there is no God and there is no fool like a smart fool.
