Stem Cell Research & Hidden Agendas

Bold New World for Bald Mice is an interesting article, not so much for what it says, but that it reluctantly reports on an aspect of the stem cell research debate that the media-liberal complex and many scientists seem to be trying to censor. The actual subject, using stem cells to grow hair and skin is perhaps not so earth shattering as it might once have been. But the interesting thing is how the writer almost apologizes for the fact that the experiment used, and I quote, "so-called adult stem cells". This only after a liberal apologia sneering at "religious groups and anti-abortion activists". Ok, so this is Wired magazine.

The ignored truth is that most all of the research that is actually producing promising results is being conducted with "so-called adult stem cells" while the always lauded fetal stem cells tend to produce a frightening level of cancers. A fact that many stem-cell proponents are unaware of and the rest couldn't care less about.

So why are two professions who are, supposedly, engaged in the search for truth and informing the rest of us morons--why are they deliberately withholding this information? Why do they angrily promote fetal cell research when more promising and less controversial avenues are open to them? The answer has to be that there is an agenda at work here separate from science or health.

What is that agenda? We can't really know until they decide to be honest with us. But they've already shown that they're willing to sacrifice honesty to pursue their agenda.

The most obvious guess is that someone is trying to create a market for human flesh. I can't imagine why unless you had a surplus supply that was easily accessible. Granted abortion is big business, but I don't think this would be a successful way to diversify the industry.

I suspect that it is entirely a subconscious reaction. A desire to promote abortion at even extreme costs. More than that, I think it is an attack on anyone who would promote any form of traditional morality--even the inherent worth of human life. I take it back. It's not a subconscious reaction; it's a spiritual reaction.

I realize it's politically incorrect to believe in Satan. Even many people who claim to believe in the bible or God reject the idea. But when you're working out the moral equations of the situation, its probably the best solution to a lot of these questions.

Now where is that razor that Occam left lying around here...?

So what I wonder is what if you use these stem cells on a naked mole rat? Have you created a new species? On a more serious note I've always wondered why more hasn't been discussed about the fate of leftover embryos from IVF proceedures. This is the first article I'e seen to even mention it. http://www.wired.com/news/medtech/0,1286,64722-2,00.html?tw=wn_story_page_next1
It seems that there are no guidlines for what to do in these cases apart from what the clinics come up with themselves.
