Craig Venter and Hamilton Smith, the two American biologists who unravelled the first DNA sequence of a living organism (a bacterium) in 1995, have made a bacterium that has an artificial genome—creating a living creature with no ancestor
BUT WE HAVE A NATURAL TENDENCY TO MAKE ANY INVENTION INTO DESTRUCTIVE MODE
WHEN THE FIRST CAR WAS MADE IN 1885 THE FIRST USE WAS TO USE IN WAR
SIMILARLY WHEN THE FIRST PLANE WAS MADE IN 1903 IMMEDIATELY IT WAS USED IN FIRST WORLD WAR (1914) FOR BOMBING
Creating something bad deliberately, whether the creator is a teenage hacker, a terrorist or a rogue state, is a different matter.
Regulation—and, especially, vigilance—will still be needed;TO Encourage the good to outwit the bad and, with luck, you keep Nemesis at bay.HOPE SO
BUT THERE IS 50-50 CHANCE THE TERRORISTS,THE HACKERS AND CROOKS OUT TO MAKE EASY MONEY; WILL USE THIS DISCOVERY TO MAKE ARTIFICIAL/SYNTHETIC LIFE; TO THREATEN HUMAN LIFE OR ALL LIFE ON EARTH AT SOME TIME IN FUTURE
SUCH PSYCHOPATHS CAN THREATEN TO WIPE OUT WHOLE MANKIND USING A NEW VIRULENT VIRUS .SUCH TERRORISTS CAN REVIVE AN EXTINCT VIRUS LIKE SMALL POX VIRUS USING THIS MEHTOD TO WIPE OUT HUMAN LIFE
THESE MAD PEOPLE CAN MAKE A VIRUS,OR BACTERIA TO INFECT THE AGRICULTURE AND CAUSE WIDE SPREAD FAMINE
THE POSSIBILITIES OF SUCH SICK MINDED PEOPLE DESTROYING LIFE FOR MONEY OR A PARTICULAR CAUSE IS PRESENT NOW MORE THAN BEFORE
FOR EXAMPLE AUM SHINRIKYO A TERRORIST ORGANISATION OF JAPANA wanted poster in Japan. As of February 2010, three people are still wanted in connection with the Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway:
WANTED TO DESTROY ALL HUMAN LIFE WITH POISON A hydrogen cyanide device which, had it not been extinguished in time, would have released enough gas into the ventilation system to potentially kill 20,000 commuters WAS USED BY THIS MAD SECT
CHANCES OF HIJACKING AND TAKING OVER OF LABS DOING ARTIFICIAL LIFE RESEARCH BY TERRORISTS TO PRODUCE LIFE THREATENING VIRUSES AND BACTERIA IS ANOTHER POSSIBILITY
ANOTHER DANGER TO LIFE IS UNWANTED OR UNFORESEEN EFFECTS OF SYNTHETIC LIFE FOR EXAMPLE A VIRUS OR BACTERIA MADE ARTIFICIALLY FOR MAKING VACCINE MAY CAUSE REACTIONS,DEATH,OR WILL BECOME UNCONTROLLABLE DUE ANY REASON CAUSING WORLD WIDE PANIC AND DEATH
NOW THE ARTIFICIAL LIFE GOING TO BE PRODUCED IS ONLY BACTERIA AND VIRUS AND SIMILAR SIMPLE LIFE
BUT LATER DEFINITELY COMPLEX ORGANISMS LIKE BIRDS,ANIMALS AND FINALLY AN ARTIFICIAL MAN WILL BE PRODUCED
QUESTIONS OF A REAL MAN MARRYING A LAB MADE WOMAN ,QUESTIONS OF CHILDREN BORN OUT
OF THIS MARRIAGE ; MANY MANY CONFUSING THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN IN A FEW YEARS TIME
Professor Ishiguro (r) stresses the importance of appearance in his robots
A LOT OF LEGAL ASPECTS WILL ARISE THEN WHETHER TO HAVE MILK
FROM AN LAB MADE COW?IS IT SAFE?
CAN WE EAT A LAB MADE CHICKEN?
Genetically modified food:-
THESE QUESTIONS ARE EVEN NOW VALID ABOUT BT COTTON[Bt Cotton is produced by inserting a synthetic version of a gene from the naturally occurring soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, into cotton. The primary reason this is done is to induce the plant to produce its own Bt toxin to destroy the bollworm, a major cotton pest. The gene causes the production of Bt toxin in all parts of the cotton plant throughout its entire life span. When the bollworm ingests any part of the plant, the Bt cotton toxin pierces its small intestine and kills the insect.]Gene flow to wild relatives:
As Bt crops are grown close to their wild relatives, it is highly possible that the Bt gene can spread to the wild relatives through pollen transfer. The new genes in the wild plants may produce enough toxins to ward off insects that normally feed on them. Some of the wild plants could grow hardier and act as weeds in the fields. This technology also leads to contamination of other species, as the transgenic plants displace other plants.
AND BT FRUITS AND BT VEGETABLES AND BT FOOD CROPS :-
- On August 18, 2006, American exports of rice to Europe were interrupted when much of the U.S. crop was confirmed to be contaminated with unapproved engineered genes, possibly due to accidental cross-pollination with conventional crops.
- On February 9, 2010, Indian Environment Minister, Jairam Ramesh, imposed a moratorium on the cultivation of GMF "for as long as it is needed to establish public trust and confidence". His decision was made after protest from several groups responding to regulatory approval of the cultivation of Bt Brinjal, a GM eggplant in October, 2009.
- NOBODY KNOWS WHETHER GENETICALLY ALTERED FOOD IS SAFE FOR HUMAN HEALTH
- SIMILARLY NOBODY KNOWS THE NEW LAB MADE ARTIFICIAL LIFE WILL KILL US OR HELP US
