    WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THIS THING WE CALL LIFE? A question asked since the beginning of conscious thought or maybe even longer, a question that could only be answered by perhaps the dead, (with whom there is no scientific way of proving that they are even contactable yet). A question that it could also be argued is one that everybody at some stage has asked him or herself? This question however, is a question that many of us aren't even sure whether we actually want to know the answer to! But never...

    Cloning Cloning is an unethical action that should not be tampered with physically in any animal form regardless of what it is. This is a genetically engineered process by humans, in which, perfectly generated genes from someone or something is copied into its own life form to be an exact replica. In the article "Calves cloned to produce drugs" there are two cows involved with cloning. People should not be tampering with this, but letting God create people and animals the way he has it planned o...

  • Comparing A Cage Of Butterflies To Mission To Mars
    860 words
    Science fiction produces a 'what if' element that asks a question and prophesies the future. There are many texts, which presents the reader or viewer with a particular way of science fiction. The two texts, 'A cage of butterflies' by Brain Caswell and 'Mission to Mars' by Brian de Palmer, both of which conform to science fiction. The technology used in 'A cage of butterflies' is of extremely high standard and produces a theme that prophesies about experimentation and mutations occurring on huma...

  • The Science Of Cloning
    845 words
    The Science of Cloning In the essay, Cloning Reality: Brave New World by Wesley J. Smith, a skewed view of the effects of cloning is presented. Wesley feels that cloning will end the perception of human life as sacred and ruin the great diversity that exists today. He feels that cloning may in fact, end human society as we know it, and create a horrible place where humans are simply a resource. I disagree with Wesley because I think that the positive effects of controlled human cloning can great...

Biologists agree that all living things come through a long history of changes shaped by physical and chemical processes that ar...

    -This essay is not mine-THE question "Do you believe in evolution or in creation?" is more than a matter of idle curiosity. The answer that one gives will be deeply reflected in his attitude toward his fellowman, his moral values and his outlook on the future. 2 Belief in evolution is not new; it did not originate with Charles Darwin. But, following publication, in 1859, of his book The Origin of Species, the supporters of the idea have greatly increased in number. In those lands where considera...

    The view of Christiaan Huygens, the Dutch mathematician and physicist who discovered Saturn's moon Titan in 1655, was as follows: Now can anyone look upon, and compare these systems (of Jupiter and Saturn) together, without being amazed at the vast magnitude and noble attendants of these two planets, in respect of this little pitiful Earth of ours? Or can they force themselves to think, that the wise Creator has disposed of all his animals and plants here, has furnished and adorned this spot onl...
