The Curse of Genetic Testing Multiplied by 3,500

An article I read today announces that they have found a way to test for 3,500 genetic faults, raising concerns (the article says) about the ethical implications.  The story veers headlong into a sustained bout of research that I am currently engaged in, research that began by wanting to answer the basic question “how does  […]

Jaffe Memo Part 10, Religious principles that secularists have and why it matters

I have now spilled much ink contending for the proposition that religion and politics must mix, using the Jaffe memo as my leaping off point.  On the face of it, such a proposition would fly in the face of the notion of a ‘separation between church and state.’  However, it is important to note that […]

Watson, Racism, Evolution, Herr Professor, Reprise

Well, I suppose at some point this cycle of responses between Herr Professor and myself is going to have to end.  I thought it kinda funny to basically be in a conversation with the gent, but of course in the abstract, where I pretend that my comments are to some ethereal group of readers of […]

Dr. Watson, I presume?

Unlike Dr. Livingstone of lore, we can expect that if Dr. James Watson- of DNA and Francis Crick fame- were to go evangelizing in Africa today, he’d not fare very well. In an article from the Independent I read: “Dr Watson said he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social […]
