Creation

I watched Horizon on Tuesday night. It was fronted by Dr Adam Rutherford. I was quite shocked.

The programme showed how a silk gene from a spider has been put into a goat to produce silk from protein in the goat’s milk. It also showed diesel being produced from artificially constructed yeast. Scientists in the US are now actually using man made ‘life’ to augment the world’s oil reserves and we were led to believe industrial production is underway on three continents.

What worried me most was these building blocks are freely available on the internet and with nothing more than garage technology amateurs (including children) are already producing such things as glow in the dark algae. The speed with which this technology is advancing is frightening.

I am reminded of a quote from another doctor Dr Ian Malcolm “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should” – Who’s Dr Malcolm? He was the Mathematician in Jurassic Park.

Talking of creations I’ve now put together a new website “Wildcatch Photography” to host my photographs. Take a look and let me know what you think.
