There were some posts that question on the need to be even 'playing' with such dangerous virus, no matter how 'perfect' flawed mortals can devise
the best containment chambers.
I believe that it goes into a deeper level of discussion - science ethics. Is it ethical to conduct those line of researches?
I would like to say no, but it would only be an irrational frog in the well belief.
Intelligence gifted to humans is worldwide, and the world currently now isn't exactly a friendly neighbourhood, with rogue and tyranical states
around us. What the free world would not touch, rogue and tyrannical states would rush in, for the sake of superiority or wealth or prestige in the
guise of finding cures for diseases which may mutate over time.
Supplies of twisted intelligence in the scientific community is never short, nor those greedy and ambitious are short either. Sooner or later, its
only a matter of time that biological weapons will scourge our Planet. Thus the free world must not stupidly believe everyone else is being ethical
,and be pragmatically prepared instead
Science will progress and have to progress anyway. It cannot remain stagnant, for we are not masters of the Universe. Or planet is but one amongst
many, orbiting an unknown Universe, into unknown and uncharted terroritories. We mankind need to understand the environments our planet sails through
and its impact upon us biological.
Today's advancement is bordering on the beginnings of being able to create even new biological entities by constructing DNA matter. It is also a
matter of time before we make leaps and bounds in the quest for the knowledge of Science.
Science by itself, like a hammer tool, or a gun, does not kill. It is only the human wielding it that kills. It calls for RESPONSIBILITY in the
advancement of science, not morality to stop the progress of science.
For every biological, cybernatic or mechanical organism we mankind create, we MUST ensure there are antidotes, vaccines and DNA or mechanical kill
switches that can stop them in its tracks before it can harm humans or mutates.
