    Why Stop Science?

    I support stem cell research. Some want it stopped but it will continue overseas. Good will come from it. Scientific research is expensive and takes time. It can never be predicted what may come of it. Rejuvenating nerve damage or new plastics that biodegrade into fertilizer...

    My man Sam Harris lays out a clear argument on why the debate over stem cell research is absurd and morally indefensible. There are other examples of why there should be no debate over this, but this short 4 minute vid sums it up nicely.

    What's So Bad?

    I really don't understand people who don't support stem cell research. Probably because they're the ones shouting the loudest for cures, and yet they won't let the scientists find a cure. If people didn't kick up such a stink about stem cell research, just imagine what kinds...

    If I Ever Am In Need of It I Know It Will Be There

    I do support stem cell research, mainly because if I were ever to be in need of the services stem cell research can provide I would love for it to have been researched enough to be of some use to me.

    Possibilities Are Endless
