Scientists have almost completed the genome sequencing for the extinct woolly mammoth. Upon finishing this feat, scientists will have a realistic chance at causing an elephant to give birth to a modern day woolly mammoth!
Mr. Snuffleupagus lives!
I wonder if we'll see a neanderthal resurrected one day? The genome sequence for our cousins is almost complete, too.
Also . . . a woman who suffered from tuberculosis received a new windpipe transplant. But the organ was grown using her own stem cells! She's gone from nearly disabled to 95 % healed!
All this brought back to my mind a website that a dear friend shared with me:
Why doesn't god heal amputees?
Science is toiling away at trying to heal human sickness. For crying out loud, doctors have figured out how to grow internal organs! A bladder was grown for a sick person a short while ago. Extinct animals (and humans) are poised to come forth from extinction again while lab rats are regenerating vital organs and limbs in test labs! A man appears to be free of HIV after a bone marrow transplant! So . . . if man is learning how to do these things, why isn't god doing these things to help mankind?
Why didn't god just heal the poor woman's windpipe?
Why did god let the woolly mammoth flash freeze in ice?
Why did god let the neanderthal become extinct?
Why is god letting sick people die of things we're learning how to cure?
Why won't god heal amputees?
