That's an interesting thought; maybe god was actually once a man?

My view is that anything that imperfect humans make can only turn out imperfect and in trying to tamper with natural processes which took eons to complete (a luxury which no man has) and man himself being a product of that very processes, how can any one (no matter how scientifically brilliant) predict or prevent bio-ecological disasters?

Just look at GM foods and the yet-to-happen ecological problems when the genes of GM crops start mixing in with non-cultivated plants.

Perhaps we are all wrong that the human race ends in a nuclear holocaust; it probably ends in a genetic self-annihilation.

My god!

You still remember how much I hate being short! !

You stickied it somewhere in front of the monitor or something? Like "Taison hates his height".

Like Crab mentioned, this somehow makes the Zombie thread have a new purpose. What if a new strand of virus gets developed?

But then again, we could create extinct species. Like dinosaurs. A quote from Jurassic Park;

id personally risk mutating into a zombie if a possibility of dinosaurs being given new life came into perspective.
I mean, Jurassic park was an awesome movie! lol

with the whole " universe in a room" thing, I'd also take that risk.
id say that would be well worth the possibility of the universe collapsing on itself or whatever.
Lifes too boring not to [censored] around with the universe i say.

Crab,

You see, humans are actually quite short-lived. We therefore don't have the luxury of doing things "cautiously". Sure, our use of science in this last 100 years have been reckless, but look at how fast we have developed over these last 100 years. Seriously, I don't think grandpa even knew what tele-communication is, look now, people are barely able to live without cell-phones, internet, TV, etc etc.

Humans are a young race, I fear that our reckless use of the sciences will bring more harm than good. Basically, we possess the ability to set things ablaze easily, but to actually being able to control the fire with precision, that's a thing humans will never be able to do unless our life-spans increases to say 300 years.

Yes, that is a very real possibility. Remember the Africanized honeybee debacle. This should be a very carefully controlled process. Hopefully they have learned from some of the earlier mistakes.

There is no such thing.

Perhaps the "Big Bang" was once a small bang in someone's laboratory that went uncontrollably big.

It is my belief that anything, including the Universe itself, can be reversed engineered if enough time and resources are devoted to it.

Even less likely to happen.

Who knows, maybe those were not mistakes, but that man was intentionally put into the evolutionary process to undertake the very task of Universal renewable ad infinitum. At the moment man seems the only specie (in our corner of the Universe) capable of doing so.

Since when did man learn from his own mistake?

And then a few generations later, does the same mistake again?

Ok, mods, feel free to edit what I'm about to say, but I just want to highlight a thing man hasn't learnt.


This isn't about what is right, what is wrong. It's just that people just can't remember the mistakes they've done in the past and repeatedly do so again and again.

An individual is smart. People are probably the dumbest animal on the planet.
