This Week in Science: PLAYING GOD: Scientists create new DNA to make 'ALIEN' life form

very informative @BigBadAndy, its always good to learn something new and when its put in the layman’s terms for us guys not in the scientific profression. very interesting, and i suppose this lays to rest my imaginary fiction of an unknown horror emerging from the depths of a clandestine govt bio warfare facility lol

or maybe they’ll go down to the yucatan peninsula and at the bottom of a lake they’ll see a strange twisted and forked rock formation. it will be given the nickname “the tail of the devil”. then when it is excavated at the cost of human life its revealed to be a Black Marker of unknown origin. however its effects on people are horrifying and they start seeing the ghosts of their loved ones long dead. people start losing their minds but when that chemical is dropped with a sample tissue of someone dead we get…NECROMORPHS! wait…isnt this from a game? lololol

Exactly! He isnt the guy on the albums but he is still amazing. He was their touring drummer for a couple years. This guy is one of hte top young drummers in the world right now.

This is the type of music Ive been playing my whole life. Ive played with several drummers of this caliber, but me personally its the guitar playing that I do best. I play drums but I cant play on this level, Im more on the Slayer, Megadeth drumming level LOL

I would agree with this sentiment. As awesome as genetic creation creatures are. In fction it’s best to keep it that way.

Sometimes you have to stay out of daddy’s toolshed.

This is sort of a common sentiment, and it’s easy to find reinforcement from movies and film and even a few real life examples. But if we really want to “stay out of Daddy’s toolshed,” there’s a number of things we have to stop immediately and live (or die) with the consequences.

Know any diabetics? All modern insulin for treating diabetes comes from genetically engineered bacteria containing the human insulin gene. Previously diabetics had to use horse insulin, purified from horse blood. It didn’t work all that well, and was expensive to produce.

Antibiotics don’t just sprout from fungi in the form of pills.

Myriad genetically engineered vaccines are used in livestock production to prevent devestating diseases.

You like apples? What about tomatoes or corn. Newsflash, forget modern biotechnology, none of these plants exist in “nature.” They are all the products of intense genetic manipulation by humans over millennia and don’t even remotely resemble their wild ancestors. Wheat, which we use to make bread and beer, is a tetraploid - meaning it has four sets of chromosomes from a (random) cross between two related species of grasses that was isolated by humans around 10-15,000 years ago. It’s a Frankenstein’s monster from thousands of years before the novel was written. None of the potatoes you eat were produced from seeds. Every banana you eat is a clone from a single plant. It’s fairly safe to say that nearly nothing you eat is “as god made it.”

I could go on for hours, but the point is if we really were to “stop playing god” our kids would die of malnutrition and diseases that we conquered a century ago.

when I think about it now, I guess that’s alright. I just remembered some foods we eat are genetic.

But so long as we don’t make Riptors to that degree I guess it’s fine.

Definitely drawing a line at maneating dinosaur death cyborgs we can agree on. :+1:t2:
