I am afraid I was not understood. Cloning is a symptom of what is happening to science. Science is another area which is being ruined. Again another symptom of that ruin is called “climat change science”.
If there won’t be enough scientists to defend science then the science will become a service for certain industries. Materialism will be leading force.
This is the problem Dr Hodges is discussing. This called in the title as disaster. Not global warming or any other junk - as I mentioned, they are symptoms of very serious problem. This crisis of science.
I am not an apologist for those who claim AGW, however, climate does change. The thing that ended the last mini-ice age was warming of the climate. Our sun is changing as is the whole solar system. Just like seasons they come they go.
I think you and I probably agree to this extent, science should be grounded in first principles. Science for science sake is frequently dangerous, Answering larger questions such as how can we be more efficient in our energy production and use are good things.
I am no fan of cloning for any of a dozen reasons. My biggest gripe is that government money is going to fund most of these projects and shouldn’t. Cloning has many uses in DNA analyses and investigations of vaccines. Other than that it is just big expensive research.
