Helena Ivanovic Very good article....more of that please !!

Very good article...showing that there is no right or wrong of actions....it is all a question of what society defines it as. Slavery was alright, untill it was abolished...today noone would say it is or was alright....eating animals or using there fur....in order to do so tormenting them incredibly....this still seem acceptable for our society although it is so wrong....hopefully one day animals, pets, will have the luck of the former slaves and beeing accepted as beeings who feel...maybe also as we do.

Wolfgang Grulke Homo sapiens did it!

I just read an article about some new fossil evidence found in Europe that seems to indicate that it was in fact Homo sapiens that destroyed Home neanderthalis (or whatever the spelling!) - largely by eating them! Although cannabalism seems a taboo subject it seems to have been a large part of our history until as recently as the 1960s in places like Papua New Guinea.

Brett Dawson Transgenic Slide in Ethics

This MB hits one of the classic dilemmas of genetic engineering right on the head. There are many potentially ethical issues and it is realisations like this that make the points most effectively. The closer to the bone, the harder it hits home. The challenge is to find a balance between the beneficial attributes of technology and the other side of the coin (unintended negative consequences or blatant abuse).
