...artificail wombs and artificial [dumb,reactive,'money',egotistical...] minds
.Days after cheerfully percolating, Liu’s rodent fetus died, deformed and contorted, more seahorse than mouse, a developmental freak. The same thing happened to the next fetus she implanted, and the one after that. “Making babies is more complicated than we imagined,” Liu says. “And we knew going into this that making babies is very, very complicated.”
.Liu, 63, is a short woman with full cheeks, a rounded middle and smooth, unlined
skin who bustles along the corridors of her lab like a cartoon teapot. She is, by any measure, maternal, with two grown sons. Twenty-one years ago, Liu, then an assistant professor, joined the first team in the U.S. to have produced a test-tube baby. Now she and her partners can boast an enviable success rate. In the past several years, about 40 percent of the couples that came to her group conceived, and in 2004, the center’s 10,000th IVF baby was born.
.In outline, the gestation process seems straightforward. Sperm and egg meet. An embryo implants. Between them, mother and baby build a placenta and an amniotic sac. Fluid builds up around the growing embryo. Hormones move in and out. Nutrition, blood and oxygen pass through the placenta. Waste products are removed. There’s a gentle hum of maternal heartbeat and digestion. It’s like a well-modulated, high-end aquarium.
Except, of course, that it’s not. The actual sequence of events is exceedingly intricate. Miss one minor step, delete a gene expression, add a dribble too much or too little of a single hormone, and you’ll wind up with a baby who is dead or monstrous or, in what may be a blessing, both.
...the origin of life via evolution is "too simple", to expect
it to be viable. it is a mere "dream" and pseudo-science speculation...!
...religion in it's ancient logic is also pseudo-science,
in most of it's terminology...!
...ALTHOUGH IT IS A PURE LOGIC METHOD "TO SIMPLIFY",
EVOLUTIONISTS HAVE SINNED BEING "TOO SIMPLISTIC"
IGNORING THE REAL PROBLEM...!
...WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD OF PURELOGIC AND SCIENCE OF THE 21ST CENTURY...!
