Stem cell research gets green light again

  1. Oh I don’t know … that picture makes stem cells look kinda gross! Are you sure that picture is not just someone’s booger? Maybe stem cell research should be illegal because it’s just so eeeEEEWWW!

    Nice try at placating the zealots. If only they could just avert their attention*. They have the luxury of some very simple truths. How nice for them! It’s all so black and white. I’m no atheist, but I don’t see how science can do anything but completely unravel the DNA. For better or worse. Just as when we split the atom. Does science tell us that which God does NOT want us to know? Jeez I hope not!

    *Sort of like God does when THEY sin.

    1. The photo is one of those micron photography things they do these days. I’ll admit its not real pretty. You were expecting sequins and flashing lights?

      As for the zealots … well, I think we’re supposed to use our brains.

  2. “To those who object to stem cell research, whatever your reasons, I say: That’s fine; don’t participate.”

    Can I not pay for it too, with my tax dollars? People who support stem cell research should pay it; people who do not support it shouldn’t be forced to pay for it. I am against the government paying for such research. If I get a tax deduction for this, I pledge to not reap its benefits.

    1. Sure, that’s only fair. You shouldn’t have to pay for it. And I shouldn’t have to pay for faith-based initiatives. Kinda reminds me of back when my employers used to insist we all donate to the United Fund and I’d object because I didn’t want to support ALL those groups; if I had to donate, I wanted it to go just to one or two certain organizations. I didn’t get very far with that, either. 🙁

... and that's my two cents
