There is such a thing as too informed.
Lets be an ignorant nation again!!!
Seriously. We know waaay too much, and if we want to know something then its right at our fingertips. I was just realizing this today, when we started arguing about cloning in English. One girl got shot down when she said "people shouldn't create life, because only God should be able to do that" and our teacher replied "what about artificial insemanation?" It all seems weird to me. I mean, yes, I do know that cloning and DNA science has caused mass advances in medicine and the saving of lives, but can we really call that an advance? The world is over populated, and we keep weakening the gene pool with all this medicine we inhale like candy, and we know so much that we think we can
play God. People should not decide who lives and who dies, but we do it every day...if someone's emergency in the hospital is more urgent than yours, you might die because they were chosen for immediate care instead of you. We abort unborn babies, not even giving them a chance to see the light of day. If you're rich, you get the medicine, the technology, the answers, the knowledge, while those less fortunate are left to die. Trust me, I have benifitted from medicine before, I am a human, but speaking in bigger picture terms, if we care at all about saving our world we will choose not to use the medicines and cloning and technology that in the end will be our destroyer.
That which does not kill us, only makes us stronger.
And when we find protection, it is only temporary, nature will just create a bigger better disease.
Maybe its good we dont have a cure for cancer.
Not saying that I am against human life, I most certainly am not, but this stuff...its insanity.
Well, thats my lecture for today class, I have a major headache and am going to go take a hot bath to see if it goes away. No advil for this renegade.
