You are right, this is scary stuff.

Additionally, other than BP, take a look at the genetics company that is responsible for Synthia.
Take a few minutes and read around. I had to remember some of my basic biology and chemistry from college, but it's still pretty scary stuff. A self-replicating "lifeform" that can modify how it embeds itself... IE, what vector it uses to keep replicating.
This reminds me of the book "Patient Zero" by Jonathon Mayberry. Weird.

Why the !@#$% can't we invent a radiation eating Synthia that sh!ts chocolate bunnies, for !@#$ sakes! Holy Dr Frankenstein.
It is estimated that the synthetic genome cost US$40 million to make and took 20 people more than a decade of work.Despite the controversy, Venter has attracted over $110 million in investments so far for Synthetic Genomics, with a future deal with Exxon Mobil of $300 million in research to design algae for diesel fuel.

Wikipedia: Craig Venter
The single-celled organism contains four "watermarks" written into its DNA to identify it as synthetic and to help trace its descendants

www.scientificamerican.com... This next post and links certainly doesn't make me feel well at all. Synthia 3
The genome also included four “watermarks” to distinguish the synthetic microbe—dubbed M. mycoides JCVI-syn1.0—from natural organisms. The watermarks are distinct genetic codes that include quotes: “To live, to err, to fall, to triumph, and to recreate life out of life,” from James Joyce; “see things not as they are but as they might be,” from J. Robert Oppenheimer; and “what I cannot build, I cannot understand,” from Richard Feynmann.
Now, why watermark the genome? For one, so he can patent it and make money off of it. But more scary is, because if someone is "infected" with these synthetic cells, the can tell if you have the (water)mark or not. And if you haven't taken the Synthia based vaccine, according to the new health care bill, your DNA will not show the watermark, and you won't be able to buy, or sell... Remember ID cards for everyone kind of thing' well now they no need to' cos they can imprint you at birth with a gentic code' just like a bar code' Sci-fi style'
I am not saying its accurate, Too much of a coincidence to ignore some facets of the post tho!
Now, as Venter has said, this is completely controlled through computer software. Once a person is infected by this synthetic life, it self replicates, until the entire person it has infected is actually a synthetic person, effectively creating a planet of zombies that can be controlled through a software program beamed world wide through Satellite and HAARP technology..
