Pandora’s Box: Researchers create first animal with artificial genetic code

August 11, 2011LONDON – Researchers say they have created the first ever animal with artificial information in its genetic code. The technique, they say, could give biologists “atom-by-atom control” over the molecules in living organisms. One expert the BBC spoke to agrees, saying the technique would be seized upon by “the entire biology community.” The work by a Cambridge University team, which used nematode worms, appears in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The worms – from the species Caenorhabditis elegans – are 1mm long, with just a thousand cells in their transparent bodies. What makes the newly created animals different is that their genetic code has been extended to create biological molecules not known in the natural world. Genes are the DNA blueprints that enable living organisms to construct their biological machinery, protein molecules, out of strings of simpler building blocks called amino acids. Just 20 amino acids are used in natural living organisms, assembled in different combinations to make the tens of thousands of different proteins needed to sustain life. But Sebastian Greiss and Jason Chin have re-engineered the nematode worm’s gene-reading machinery to include a 21st amino acid, not found in nature. Dr Chin of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology (where Francis Crick and James Watson first cracked the structure of DNA) describes the technique as “potentially transformational”: designer proteins could be created that are entirely under the researchers’ control. –BBC

    This is insane. Man playing God usually has painful consequences. Even if mans intent is for the good it inevitably ends up used for evil.

    I wonder if a Human being is actually the scientist behind all the Genetically modified science out there. Whenever I read articles like this it brings to mind Genesis 6. An attempt to create a species above God and without God.

    The enemy seems to be working overtime in these Last Days….

    This seems to be very troublesome. Why? Man has/is moved into a area that is as wrong for our physical/spiritual self as was the partaking of the tree of knowledge in the garden of eden.
    Therefore, crossing this threshold, I believe we can expect future visual horrors and dangers never seen since the dawn of time and no doubt, divine intervention of some kind.

    No doubt there has been supernatural assistance in this process.
    Is it possible that Satan who has always wanted to be worshiped like the most high is working to develop a creation of his own to show he is equal with God and therefore worthy of worship and also perhaps create a resistance to the second coming?

    That may sound strange, but who would have guessed all the chaos this year would bring.

    Just a thought

    Just saw the movie Captain America and how they took a scrawny 90# guy and made him into superman in WWII. Also on Germany’s side an occult obsessed military man becomes like a superevil demon. Now the movie was pretty clean as far as language, but this is getting people ready to accept these supermen. Just like in the time of Noah. It is amazing when you look at all the Hollywood movies how they are preparing the sheeple to accept all this insanity as if it were normal.

    FACT:
    Cut the tail off a worm and the head still survives. The tail writhes in agony to distract predator. Thus ‘Worm Head’ burrows into ground and grows new tail.

    If our human nature is to destroy and create ergo being the meaning of existence then just burrow your head away from the destruction and grow a new tail.

I can still remember Christian Barnard and the first heart transplant, there was huge moral uproar but the consensus changed over time as it has saved many lives and furthered the field of organ transplants for the good. Changing genetic codes with artifcial information…the worry is, the ‘controllers’.

      Agreed. Science is neutral. Knowledge is good. Unfortunately, some humans are ethically-challenged whether or not they have a religious background. Throughout history opportunists, flim-flam artists, dictators, and scoundrels have used knowledge and science to further their own personal agendas as H. G. Wells showed us in “The Shape of Things to Come.” These individuals can create catastropic problems, but eventually the human spirit can use the knowledge to overcome the problems. It is scary that in the infancy of humanity we have the information to change the genetic code, but in the end, it will improve the world and our species as we move on to the next step in evolution.

All these gods like the one in the Bible were attempts of man to make sense of the universe and give a hope against death. I hope your faith gives you comfort, but, please, I don’t need a feudal “lord” to be my dad in the sky.

    Although the scientists and geneticists involved in this research are probably quite benign, we can’t dismiss the possibility, that some rogue elements or dictator ( or a corporation, etc.) will not use this technology, to their own evil ends, for the purpose of dominating others.

    It may be a smart thing, to outlaw this kind of genetic ‘re-engineering’, until Mankind gets his own moral implications, sorted out.
