Go to: New Bus Campaign

chaoshellas's Avatar Jump to comment 260 by chaoshellas

Well many nice messages with a lot of different "styles".
Some are aggressive some are less aggressive.

My opinion is ...
I think that when professor Dawkins said that this bus campaign is a consciousness raising he was right.I think we should go with a not too aggressive message which additionally promotes rational thinking.
I'd suggest.
"What if there is no god.How does that change your life?"

"So many religions.Why yours is the right one?"

Go to: How would you feel about a half-human half-chimp hybrid?

@Dhamma
Morals are all about how we optimally administer from a "well-being" perspective what already exists while science is concerned about what we yet haven't discovered.
Opening new horizons and killing old demons is science.
Truth is we are afraid that if we create a new hubrid we will also learn at the same time so many new things about ourselves which will be much more than we can probably accept or handle emotionally .
I believe that if we create a hybrid this hybrid is a creation and it has no rights.It's exactly like a machine.
It's the expression of a genetic code that we manipulated and created.
Before people start screaming ,please answer me this...
Why should that hybrid have any set of rights even if it has some sort of intelligence?
Because it resembles humans?
I am sorry if I don't see things emotionally.These emotions are holding back science because deep inside us we don't want to accept what we really are.
Ultimately we cannot clearly ,yet, see that this hybrid is nothing more than something we have to use in order to help our science advance.

In ancient Greece it was forbidden to perform anatomy on dead bodies because they were considered sacred.
We should not make the same mistake.
Science must advance.
The ones that must save the world are not religious zealots .They are the scientists.
I see no reason why we become immoral once we start manipulating DNA to produce hybrids etc.
I don't see in the Bible god forbidding such things since god never referred to DNA.He was probably "hiding" the fact.The ones that say that god doesn't like these things are religious people who apparently believe to have some sort of direct link with the god.
