Re: Bio-modified Weed, detects Landmines (Mike Kremer)

Arabidopsis is not exactly another kudzu of the plant world. Getting it to grow at all takes some doing. Even when it flourishes it's hardly more than a green rumor. Remember Pricess
Diana getting all Nobel Peace Prize huffy about land mines in the Third World? Her Arab stud's uncle, Adnan Kashoggi, made his fortune selling those land mines.

  1. Genetically engineered organisms have unknown hazards.

  2. Genetically engineered organisms will always have unknown hazards.

  3. Genetically engineered organisms therefore may never be deployed.

Repeat after Uncle Al, "Luddites and Enviro-whiners." It is pure and noble to be rabid in opposition to any easy inexpensive massive improvement in the human condition. Remember what Jesus Christ said (noting that he spoke fluent Latin, hence: Iesus Christus dicendo...),

"Poenitentiam agite adpropinquavit enim regnum
caelorum omnem vitam fidelium penitentiam esse voluit." (ALL LIFE IS PENETENCE!)

Uncle Al says, "Keep your filthy empty hands out of my clean full pockets."
