Creation of life - News and opinion



Recently, the news have shown what they call "The creation of life". Scientists could create a synthetic DNA. Then, they put it in a cell. Ok...so...this is the creation of life? Well...as I know, they just created the DNA. It's a big achievment but, it's not the FIRST STEP TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF ARTIFICIAL LIFE. Maybe it is, but calm down. Ok...It's the same thing if I pick up a battery and put in a robot. Without it, anything will work. However, there are a lot of parts of the machine that we have to take into account. So, scientists, keep doing your excellent work but, please, don't spread it. The media always find a way to transform the facts into a big thing, causing unnecessary discussions in religion, politics, etc.
