Why would Artificial Life be wrong? I don't get why people see it as "Wrong". It's unnatural, so what? Artificial Life could bring the human race into a new age, we can finally bring ourselves above the title of "Human".......I'm looking forward to the first real Coordinator. XD

I agree change is gonna happen one way or another. We're continuing to evolve everyday. The only problem with artificial life is we're venturing into the unknown (what else is new xD) and we don't what repercussions there will be if we tamper too much. With all we know, we might start eliminating the biodiversity of this world

umm i don't think this is about creating artificial humans, thats not what these guys r trying to achieve (well darpa might be..). At this level there just trying to artificially create bacteria, or something similar to it, the idea being that we could produce custom made antibodies to defend against deadly diseases. It would be similar to some of the medical applications of future nano technologies.

Kicking up a fuss about this will achieve nothing, if its not researched and regulated for genuine purposes in the public eye then it will just be done illegally elsewhere without any government supervision. When technologies like this become public knowledge then trying to make them disappear is pointless they will only reappear somewhere you have no control over them. It makes far more sense to get involved and help develop them while preparing for the future implications than to try sweep it under the rug.

I imagine though that the pharmaceuticals industry will do everything in its power to curve public opinion against these new technologies which will put them out of a job and imo its good riddens, if you religious types what a good definition of evil you don't have to look much further than the histories of the big players on pharmaceuticals.

First of all, define what it means to be alive and having emotions. We can develop robots (maybe not soon, but possible) that can improve itself, and slowly kill itself as a supplement for age, but is that REALLY life?

uhh i have to say these are single cell organisms, the worry is creating a super germ not some sort of animal or person. Basically this is life at the size that its just an interesting type of machine. Don't you people actually look at the links posted?
