I'm old. I've seen a few things. What I'm seeing now is a lack of humility.
Congrats on your age. What have you seen that has to do with stem cell research and organ donors? I don't understand how working to find ways to
ease suffering, offer healthier and happier lives and reverse the effects of debilitating disease equals a lack of humility?
Man is so self-satisfied with himself that he doesn't stop to consider the morality of the things he does.
You've assumed my perspective is a religious one. It isn't.
Do you think that it is immoral to harvest organs from the dead to help the living? Do you think the scientists, who work tirelessly to find ways to
defeat virus's, cancer, diabetes, lupus, heart disease, etc., etc., follow a self satisfying, opposite of humble and an immoral goal?
The way you casually drop in the "morality" word betrays your narrow minded opinion that scientific and medical advancements are "MAN" being immoral.
Sorry, but that sounds like a pretty "religious" bias.
My perspective is one of dignity for the dead. It's okay if someone signs up to be defiled after death. My concern is the violation of
individuals who have not volunteered for such things. Look what happened to Alistair Cooke.
So, you're afraid of grave robbers? What happened to Alistair Cooke?
Medicine is the province of modern day Frankensteins. It's just that no one has the balls to challenge The Beast. Your faith in the monster
behind the scalpel is touching.
So, you do think a heart or a kidney transplant, for example, is immoral?
