Go to: FFRF announces fund to aid nonbelieving clergy

ganggan's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by ganggan

Why do we care about a few nonbelieving clergy? Try to strike some points? Would the money be better spent on educating children? Prevention vs. treatment.

Go to: The Case for Naturalism

I do not agree that "love" and "nice to people" are created by people. They are also given to us by the nature through natural selection.

Go to: Finding Phenotypes

Scientists should not use tricky language to mislead readers.

"For example, mutated forms of the BRCA1 gene, which are associated with breast cancer in humans, are also responsible for a higher frequency of male progeny in C. elegans."

BRCA1 mutation also alters human sex ratio.

Go to: A lot of science is just plain wrong

This article is actually evidence that science is the pathway to truth. There are bad apples among scientists and trush in publications, but science has the mechanism to weed out the gabage.

Go to: S.Korean, Russian scientists bid to clone mammoth

ganggan's Avatar Jump to comment 30 by ganggan

DavidMcC, you have no clue how animal cloning is done. You can not clone animals using DNA extracted from tissue, at least not now and even 50 years from now. You need cells. Can you get living cells from the dead mammoth tissue? Let's not get into the tech details.

Let's play a guessing game. The Korean guy won the bid of cloning mammoth. Does this tell something? If you have the money, do you want to throw it on a person who has a dirty history in his career? There are many cloning experts in the world, why don't they love the money and the opportunity to become a superstar? Guess, guess. Because they all know it is a dumb idea. They don't want to be seen as a jerk.
