Scientists use DNA to make virus

For only the second time, scientists have used segments of dna to construct the genetic blueprint of an organism.

Bits of DNA were assembled and spliced together to make the genome of a virus called Phi-X - which normally infects bacteria.

The man behind the work is Craig Venter, hailed as a pioneer in reading the human genetic code.

The work is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science in the United States.

Well, this can't be all good. It's only a matter of time when some man-made virus accidentaly gets out and starts to spread.

What worries me more tis this statement about the uses of such a virus.

The project was funded in part by the Department of Energy, which hopes to create microbes that would capture carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, produce hydrogen or clean the environment.

Can you say. B I O C H E M T R A I L ?

Maybe they are already spraying these things in our atmosphere and making us sick.

you will find that this has been going on for years. The hidden labs hold interesting things and dangerous creations

Hold on a second.....Are you trying to say the United States of America, is developing "Biochemical" agents?

Are you trying to tell me that the U.S. Government, known for it's Time Honored Dedication to Upholding the Constitutional Freedoms and Civil Liberties of All People are currently developing possible "Weapons of Mass Destruction!!!"

Well I suppose somebody better alert the "Savior of Nations"....Mister "War on Terror" G.W. "Bring em on" Bush about what's happening! Sounds like we've finally found solid evidence as to who's making WMD's this time! I guess we should start Carpet Bombing North America and Overthrow thier Maniac Terrorist Leader and it's Government before something bad happens, huh?!?!?!


Or is it only for the battered 3rd world countries with proven financial rewards for the Elite that are subject to such policies???

MOjOm, get real. Unless you're for bacteria or carbon dioxide rights, I don't think this is a weapon of mass destruction. Developing a certain virus is very different than creating a weapon that will be used against humanity.
