I watched a programme recently that introduced me to synthetic biology it put forth the notion that we can now create anything in a lab, and with that we can now control our environment and manipulate it as we wish. Well I do not know how I feel about such processes, I think its one thing to know we have a degree of control over nature but its a completely different matter to wield ultimate control over something. I think it could be a conflict that we could loose for the power within nature the energy that exists naturally is vast. In the programme the scientists had genetically changed goats and implanted the spider Silk protein into their make up. And know they can make silk from that goats milk how crazy is that? Anyway think about it science is important but only when it works a long side mother nature!
