Would you pay a trillion dollars to play God?

Craig Venter's synthesis of life in a laboratory for the fist time could be worth over a trillion dollars, according to the Guardian

Do you think someone should be able to pay for the right to create life?

Quoth from the article:

In fact, it was grown using yeast as an intermediary, but to the molecular biologist, organisms are just another kind of apparatus.

That gives us some insight into the brains of these guys who think they're playing God, huh?

Life, is just another testing bed.

And when it escapes from the lab, infects NATURAL life and destroys the environment, it will cost thousands of times as much to try and clean up!

Humans have NO business playing God and endangering ALL of life on this planet. It is apparent that our technology has far exceeded our morality and our intelligence - for a moral and intelligent person would know that there are some areas of science that must never be breached. Sadly, the quest for fame and riches clouds these scientists ability to exercise better judgement. Mankind ends up paying the ultimate price as a result!
