On The Verge Of Creating Synthetic Life

The OT has a god who lives in the clouds. He then was forced to move into space when we could see he was not in the clouds. Now they babble that he is outside of time and space. It says that in the bible where?

 

Creationists have a similar problem. No missing links was the cry but we now have a fair number of transitional fossils. They will grudgingly admit micro evolution (changes within species) but still deny macro evolution, as in transitions from one species to another. Confronted with proof, all they can do is deny it.

 

Some years back, New Scientist reported that a number of labs were working on artificial life and expected results in 10-20 years. It looks like the first results are due already.

 

Methane on Mars which is of such an amount and mainly appears in Mars' summer can only be explained by bacterial life under the surface of Mars according to people like NASA. The next generation space telescope due to go up in several years will not only see Earth-like planets but analyze their atmosphere for signs of pollution not only caused by life but by industry.

 

The ever-shrinking god.

No, Hovind already patented and canned his own response some ten years ago. It basically goes, "If you can produce life in a lab, that only proves that you need intelligence to create life."

Yeah, awesome. Lot's of ted movies are. Gene technology is one of the three pillars of the future (besides nano technology and brain technology). I am expecting a lot of it. Like eternal life e.g. :-)

 

@Sexton Blake. Did you read "Your Inner Fish"? Very good to read from a paleontologist about the missing link from fish to amphibians. Would like to read something by the way about the first insect that climbed out of the water.

I don’t believe what Ventor is doing is anything like creating an organism from scratch. What he’s doing seems to me to be like genetic engineering.

 

But I do believe we may not be far from creating novel organisms from scratch.

That's hilarious.

 

A Bob was created.

 

B Bob is a man.

 

All men are created.

 

Hey, premise A and B are correct so the logical conclusion has to be right. Right?
