Medical Miracle or Mistake? by Lady Camelot
Fundamental elements of life and aspects of cloning bring dramatic advancement to scientific and medical community; however, is this fast-paced artificial reproduction an intrusion of Nature or a doorway to infinite, medical cures?
In lieu of scientific developments in biological mainstream, human intervention of life and it's natural state are of utmost concern. Questions are being raised as to what constitutes life produced naturally into this world as opposed to man-made biocreationism. Current events depict a dangerously evolving senerio that will eventually lead to life altering, moral dilemmas.
The query here is whether we, as human beings, can justify birth of alternative life. Physicians of all fields excitedly anticipate what expectedly will stimulate medical achievements on a phenomenal scope.
If you can, imagine limitless possibilities. Heart transplant waiting lists would be a thing of past. Accident victims could eventually have limb replacements by way of simple, DNA extraction. The ideology that manipulated organs can be created on demand, will definitely expand human lifespans. This, in turn, will bare increasing weight on this already over-populated world.
What becomes deciding factor of who lives or dies will have serious reprecussions. "Logan's Run," a 70's television series comes to mind when faced with this imminent technology. In this program, Earth is overpopulated and depleted of natural resources. This fictional dramatization depicts life without illness; however, when one reaches age of 30, he or she is incinerated to create more space for those remaining. Although "Logan's Run" was only a novelty, it was indeed a sign of things to come.
Babel Vs. the PCWritten by Lady Camelot
Babel vs. PC by Lady Camelot
Imagine a time when mankind was young. Migration led many to land of Shinar. It was during that time, that man came together and decided to build not only a city but a tower that would reach heavens. Seeing structure, Lord was not very pleased. In fact, He knew what trouble this could lead to, so He confused mankind with different languages and scattered them across face of earth. Thus, is story of Babel. (Babylon, remains of an ancient city, is now located in Iraq.)
Eerily, times of a rich, historical past parallel today's society. The familiarity to modern civilization is uncanny. In biblical tale of tower of Babel, men came together with one language and one common goal: desire to control land and all that lay beneath tower. Making impossible - possible to Human nature.
The construction of tower of Babel tells a story of man and its amorous lust for greed and power. To build such a massive structure that led directly to heavens, what a marvel it must have been. Though tale is simple, its meaning is vast. Herein lies virtue of society itself. With industrialized world at its peak and infinite computerized technological advances, we have reached brink of Babel. In this day and age, mankind has means to communicate to far outreaches of all earth. With mere strokes upon a keyboard, we can speak with persons of different languages, cultures, race, religion and region. There are no boundaries to human initiative.
