There are major conflicts with stem cell research as we already know...one is what is considered alive to actually consider it a life being taken away. Another is to use stem cell research to be used for what it is supposed to be used for.

Any private company could use stem cell research and fund it..What if it actually got out of hand? there would be no stopping it. They go even go into cloning or actually start making human bodies to store organs and be dumping them in the trash after they are done with them. (though just a thought).. that is why the govenment must regulate it because we as people seem to not be able to control ourselves without the government regulating our lives. Take depression for instance. get my drift? Idk.

Anyways...I think people take this way out of hand as to what it is supposed to be used for and what ideas come from other people that would corrupt the true potential of the good in stem cell research and make it look extremely bad.


True, but I believe I said that private companies should do research on the subject. I never said anything about government regulation. The government may regulate the experimentation but I believe it should not fund it.


The problem would lie in the company itself as well. Most of the top companies receive funding from the government and therefore would be within the government anyways. Say for example: Northrop and Orbit is a corporation that works directly with the government and TRW as well creating space technology and what not. Without working for the government I do not think there would be a possible way to obtain the currency they need to be at their best right now.
Also, I would think it be essential for the government must fund and take an interest should another foreign country want its information and data should they be bought out. Should a country buy out these companies they would also have the means to be as up to date as we are. Not that it should matter, as this is stem cell. But then again this is stem cell researching where we have no idea what regulations there are in other countries. They could possibly go all the way as to cloning humans? i dunno.

If we are members of CR, I assume most of us have a lot of free time. I mean, we are posting about stem cells on an Anime website forum!
And yes, obviously the library is the best way to learn about it; especially in my campus. People stare at me if I check out more than 3 books.

And you have more points than me, so I assume you also have lots of free time as well?

wow kyo, that really sucks to hear from you.

then again, you are a spoiled little rich boy with a nice car, apparently nice girlfriend, in a nice college, nice parents, living in a nice place. youve lived a VERY easy life, it seems to me. until youve been to the point where you have had reason to kill yourself, you cant comment


What's the worst to one person may not be the worst to someone else. It's all relative. That's beside the point though. Some suicides are from people being weak but, there is also mental health issues. Many people still do it for attention though, and that is where the weak people come from. A lot of times I think suicide is glorified in a way that makes a lot of teenagers think it's cool to over dramatize thier lifes almost maybe to the point where depression if over diagnosed (though not being a psychologist I have no way of knowing that). Also a lot of suicides are selfish. Even if it is a half decent way to be depressed, don't you think the amount of pain you'd cause other people should be enough to stop you?

EDIT: and sorry for being off topic >_>

this whole post bleed bias.

and to invert your whole bullshit genius idea.
that baby very well could be a serial killer too.
babies die every day just like people do....everyone needs to come out of their safety bubble.

4. was there a real valid point to 4?



Of course my post is biased, I stand up for the "little man", especially when they are so little they don't have a choice in their own lives. My little siblings were never bullied because I took responsiblity for weaker forms of life. I have the power, so I protect life so it can reach a stage where it can defend itself.

Do you know of some of the psychological torture twins endure? I call it the Marsha, Marsha, Marsha Syndrome One whiny twin loses their sense of identity and is clinically-depressed their whole life. But for a clone, they never had a life, they would be a scientific entertainment, a freak/clown. That f***ing sucks all balls. As do circus freaks who have to deal with ignorant public masses.

Immortality, yes. They only started researching embryonic stem cells because they regenerate any cell in the body. With millions of dollars, a person could replace most of the cells in their body with new stem cells. If your cells continue to function in this manner, you WON'T DIE, not from age. And some cells(cancer) can even live forever, so that would mean one treatment of stem cells with cancer-type programming. I give it 30 years. Genome mapped already, abortion legal=research material.

That's the easy part, finding out how to cure diseases is the hard part. I vote for a Noah's Ark approach, all geniuses are given treatments to make them live longer, then they can cure the diseases. I'm only above-average, so there is no bias there. The kids in my Chem class can so pwn me in calculus-based math, but they have no common sense, especially to realize math abso-f***ing -lutely sucks.

If the baby is a serial killer, we dissect them to find out how to recognize other serial killers, it's called research. Just like stem cell research. And we don't execute them humanely, we let other serial killers see them in pain for their crimes, that way people will actually fear the death penalty.

Later termed fetuses have nerve endings and neural connections, scientists can only assume on the data, that they can feel pain. All they can't do is breathe with their lungs and scream, as they are stabbed, melted, and sliced. It's called the science of biology, they aren't making this up, they just don't want to offend people with delicate senses or ethics.
They don't sedate them, is the most disgusting part to me, just because they haven't finish feeding directly from the mother's blood, doesn't mean they don't have a functioning brain.

#4=Life begins on conception, it doesn't matter if it leaves the womb. That is why they can't decide if viruses are alive, they have all that is required to being defined as living(automatic process, and they used genetic data) but what they form is so basic it might as well be a piece of non-living dirt.
Much like an embryo, in it's basic form, it is a piece of organic matter, but given time it is a rational creature of higher intelligence. How hard is that to understand? Abortion=murder, Lacey Peterson and Connor are an example of that in a court case.
