Not to get off topic, but I've noticed with the recent announcements of cancer, aids, and life research that...
Jesus, this has to be the most evidently self-loathing and pessimistic thread I've ever read on ATS!
Seriously, does everyone on ATS hate themselves or something?
Any time there is news of a cancer vaccine, aids cure, or life extension, the replies are always the same!
"What makes you think we'll have access to it?"
"They should be focusing on something else!"
"Why would you want to live that long?"
Does "Good" news even exist to anyone here, or is it all skewed in your heads to the point that it is slaughtered and dissected only to magnify the
most obscure negative values?
"Who would want to look like Yoda?"
"scientists are in no hurry to cure."
"who do you think is going to pick their Corn, slaughter their beef, and salt and pepper their green?"
"Extended lifetimes won't be a privilege enjoyed by the slave population."
"WE HAVE lived 300+ years back in the days of the old.. Bible states this. "
Are you KIDDING me?! Logician magician to ATS, this is EARTH! Come in! DO YOU READ ME?!?
Life extension is great, and it would only have us find cures to other ailments much quicker, as the experienced and intelligent would have more time
to chip away at our problems.
