Got this from a radio interview last night…
Seems an American team have created a synthetic living cell. The inventor was very clear (for a scientist) that this was NOT creation of life, but a synthetic cell that could divide and so replicate itself. Quite an achievement.
Another scientist (not an American) was interviewed after and asked, “Is this playing God?” Don’t you just love these dumb questions! Well listen to this dumb answer…
The guy said, “Well, it just proves the theory of evolution and that random chance can create life…”
What a plonker. It took a team of top scientists 15 years to DESIGN the whole thing, and they used already EXISTING LIFE as a foundation on which to BUILD their experiments until THEY succeeded.
Makes you wonder, are they that thick before they go to university, or do they learn it whilst they are there.
